Gleacher & Company Reports Fourth Quarter And Year End 2011 Financial Results

Eric Gleacher, Chairman, said, “Tom and his team have done a wonderful job repositioning the Company and attracting new talent to our platform. The strategic plan they are executing is sound and gaining traction. Today, the quality and strength of our service offerings are better than ever, and I am confident that our businesses are poised to gain market share and deliver profitability in the years ahead.”

The Company also announced today that its Board of Directors has renewed the Company’s share repurchase program and has authorized up to $25 million in repurchases of Company common stock through the date on which the Company publicly releases its results of operations for fiscal 2012. In implementing the repurchase program, the Company intends to review market conditions and make purchases at such times as it believes prudent and in accordance with applicable securities laws.
