Total revenues declined from $37.9 million in fiscal 2005 to $32.4 million in fiscal 2006 as a result of lower performance fees realized during the year. Management fees, administration and redemption fees increased 8.8% to $20.0 million in fiscal 2006 from $18.3 million in the previous year due to deployment of AUM in the real estate management and private corporate debt operations.

Operating income decreased from $8.6 million in the prior year to $3.7 million in fiscal 2006 due to lower realized performance fees in fiscal 2006.

IAM earns performance fees when investment returns outperform a designated benchmark. These benchmarks are contract specific and only apply to certain investment products. Performance fees of the Asset Management operations are realized sporadically as they tend to be recognized generally towards the end of the life of the pool of assets being managed, which at times can be up to twelve years. Performance fees at the Hedge Funds operations are generally recognized on an annual basis or semi-annual basis.
