Stocks in this article: MKTX

Total expenses for the second quarter of 2012 increased 6.7% to $27.6 million, compared to $25.9 million for the second quarter of 2011. This increase was primarily due to higher marketing and advertising costs, depreciation and amortization costs and technology and communications costs.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2012 was 40.4%, compared to 40.0% for the second quarter of 2011.

Employee headcount as of June 30, 2012 was 247, compared to 236 as of June 30, 2011.

Dividend

The Company’s board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.11 per share of common stock outstanding, to be paid on August 23, 2012 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 9, 2012.

Balance Sheet Data

As of June 30, 2012, total assets were $289.7 million and included $188.2 million, or $5.03 per diluted share, in cash, cash equivalents and securities available-for-sale. Total stockholders’ equity as of June 30, 2012 was $261.7 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure, when taken into consideration with the corresponding GAAP financial measure, is important in understanding the Company's operating results. See the attached schedule for a full reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA.
