Jefferies Posts Strong Q4, Full-Year Results

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.

For the quarter, revenue came in at $769 million and net was $72 million ($0.31 EPS). The two figures were 39% and 50% higher on a year-over-year basis, respectively.

In the immediate future, Jefferies is to be merged with Leucadia (NYSE: LUK  ) , which acquired it last month. Leucadia had previously been its largest shareholder.
