Richard B. Handler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Brian P. Friedman, Chairman of the Executive Committee, commented: “These preliminary results represent the best third quarter and the best first nine-months Jefferies has achieved in our 50-year history. Our third quarter performance was driven by an estimated $461 million in Investment Banking net revenues. These record preliminary investment banking results reflect solid contributions from equity and debt capital markets, strong performance in our merger and acquisition advisory business, and solid participation across our industry groups and geographies. Our sales and trading business preliminary results were also solid for the quarter and are estimated at $370 million. We continue to expand our client reach and believe we are gaining market share across the board as we leverage our unique position as the largest non-bank, full-service global investment banking firm based in the U.S. The overall environment is reasonable, and our competitive position has never been stronger.”
Actual fiscal third quarter 2014 results may differ from these preliminary estimated results, either positively or negatively, in connection with normal and customary quarterly closing processes for valuations and revenue and expense accruals.
