Jefferies Group (NYSE: JEF ) this week reported fourth-quarter and full-year earnings that for the most part showed robust growth and even broke a record in one instance, the company reported in a press release.
Annual net revenues for 2012 reached a new high of just under $3 billion, an 18% improvement over the previous year. Net GAAP earnings to common shareholders totaled $282 million ($1.22 per share), which was slightly lower than 2011's figure.
