NEW YORK -- July 10, 2013

Evercore (NYSE: EVR) today announced that it intends to expand its global
investment banking platform by establishing a Private Capital Advisory (“PCA”)
business focused on secondary transactions for private funds interests. This
initiative significantly expands the services that Evercore offers to leading
institutional investors and Fund sponsors, and complements the capital raising
advisory services provided by Evercore’s Private Funds Group and the strategic
and merger advisory services offered by Evercore’s Advisory business
generally.

Nigel Dawn and Nicolas Lanel have agreed to join Evercore to lead the
business. Mr. Dawn will run PCA globally while Mr. Lanel will head up the
European operation. Mr. Dawn, who was most recently Managing Director and
Global Co-Head of the Private Funds Group at UBS, is a recognized leader in
this business bringing more than twenty years of experience advising investors
and fund sponsors. Mr. Lanel was most recently Managing Director and Global
Co-Head of Secondary Advisory at UBS, where he led the expansion of the
business into Europe. The PCA business will be majority owned by Evercore with
key principals, including Mr. Dawn and Mr. Lanel, owning the minority stake.
The Evercore PCA business is expected to launch during the second half of 2013
following the recruiting of additional professionals to support the business
in North America and Europe.

“The PCA business fits perfectly into the Evercore model of providing
independent advisory services to our clients based on our ideas, our
intellectual capital and our relationships. We believe this business leverages
the relationship network and market presence of our firm.” said Ralph
Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer of Evercore. “We are
excited that we have brought together a highly experienced team to lead this
business and we are confident that they will build a strong global franchise
that augments Evercore’s ability to serve leading investors and fund sponsors
worldwide.”
