MF Global Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: MF), a broker-dealer providing trading and hedging solutions, today reported results for its second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011.

  • Certain charges impact GAAP results. GAAP net loss applicable to common shareholders was $191.6 million, or $1.16 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter, compared with a loss of $94.3 million, or $0.59 per basic and diluted share for the same period last year. 2 Significant charges in the quarter included valuation allowances against deferred tax assets of $119.4 million, restructuring charges of $10.0 million and loss on extinguishment of debt of $16.1 million from retiring a portion of the firm’s 9 percent senior notes due 2038.

“Reflecting the stressed markets in the quarter, we deliberately chose to reduce overall market exposure in most principal trading activities and focused on preserving capital and liquidity,” said Jon S. Corzine, chairman and chief executive officer, MF Global. “We also used the dislocation in the markets to add quality people for strategic roles, as well as expand our client relationships across our businesses.”
