For the second quarter of 2012, the adjusted effective tax rate was 22.0%, 27.2 percentage points lower than the 49.2% adjusted effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2012. The decrease was due primarily to a tax benefit in the second quarter of 2012 resulting from the reversal of a tax liability reserve upon settlement of an uncertain tax position and the write-off of a deferred tax asset related to the vesting of RSUs at a price below their grant date price in the first quarter of 2012.
GAAP income tax benefit for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.3 million compared to GAAP income tax expense of $5.3 million for the first quarter of 2012 due primarily to a 90% decrease in income before income tax expense and the reasons noted above.Liquidity and Capital As of June 30, 2012, the Company had cash (excluding amounts held in the Company’s Consolidated Investment Products) of $59.9 million, seed capital investments in our strategies of $47.3 million and investments held for deferred compensation of $10.1 million.
