This undertaking has not been without pain. As we have said previously, when rebuilding, one must invest the time and capital before reaping results. To that end, we have taken charges, in this and prior quarters, for write downs of goodwill, deferred tax assets, and so forth. These charges were necessary elements of the cleansing required for long term growth.”
Mr. Hughes continued, “Today, Gleacher & Company is staffed by professionals sharing a common vision, and we continue to recruit actively. We have assembled a deeply experienced management team tasked with orchestrating change and building best in class businesses. While we are making progress against the roadmap we designed a year ago, we have a great deal of work left to do, and a number of challenges to overcome; our efforts remain a work in progress, and our results will continue to be impacted by the natural cost of change and early stage business building efforts. We believe our strategic plan is well suited for the current market environment, and our team can deliver against that plan, creating value for all of our stakeholders.”
