Gleacher & Company Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: GLCH

Gleacher & Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: GLCH) today reported net revenues of $44.6 million, net loss from continuing operations of ($60.8) million, or ($7.6) million on a non-GAAP basis, and diluted loss per share of ($0.51), or ($0.06) on a non-GAAP basis for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. A reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP results to these non-GAAP results is discussed below under “Non-GAAP Financial Results.”


  • Continued actions consistent with previously announced long term strategic plan
  • Substantially rebuilt MBS & Rates business unit
  • Added experienced professionals to Credit Products unit
  • Reduced balance sheet usage including adjustments to repo book

Thomas Hughes, Chief Executive Officer, said, “One year ago, after my arrival, we announced a strategic plan to better position Gleacher & Company for profitability and meaningful returns for all stakeholders.  We described the major building blocks of the plan, including: a cultural shift to foster coordination among business units; growing our Investment Banking capabilities to include additional industry verticals; assembling best in class content and problem solving skills in particular business units; and achieving significant expense reductions, especially regarding our compensation to revenue ratio.  We stated that the plan would take time to implement, and that the roadmap for implementation included critical mileposts.  One year later, we have effected a great deal of change against that roadmap: we have recruited new leadership for two business units who are experienced professionals, aligned with our cultural values; we have upgraded our staff, and we are delivering more relevant content and a deeper skill set to our clients; we have reduced expenses by exiting unprofitable activities, and through adjustments to our compensation practices; and we have repositioned our balance sheet so that it is more easily understood. That said, we still have work to do regarding our Investment Banking division, and we continue to analyze our ClearPoint options.
