Although the current-year periods include revenue from the PrinceRidge Holdings LP and JVB Financial Holdings, LLC consolidated subsidiaries, which were acquired in 2011, the extreme weakness in the current capital markets more than offset the impact of these acquisitions. Revenue was $20.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to $23.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The third quarter year-over-year decrease was also the result of a reduction in gains on principal transactions of $2.1 million. In the third quarter of 2010, IFMI recognized gains on its investment in the first Strategos Deep Value fund of $2.1 million; that fund was substantially liquidated in 2010. Revenue was $76.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to $100.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The year-over-year decrease is also due to a reduction in gains on principal transactions of $22.3 million and a reduction in asset management revenue of $2.5 million, offset by a net increase of net trading and new issue revenue of $0.8 million. In the nine months ended September 30, 2010, IFMI recognized gains on its investment in the first Strategos Deep Value Fund of $4.5 million, and on its investment in Star Asia of $13.4 million, versus comparable current year losses of $0.0 million and $1.1 million, respectively.
Net loss attributable to IFMI was $4.0 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2011, and $7.0 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to net income of $0.0 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2010 and $5.0 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2010.
