- impairment of goodwill recorded during the second quarter of 2012,
- valuation allowance on deferred tax assets recorded during the second quarter of 2012,
- severance expense recorded during the first quarter of 2012,
- compensation expense related to the resignation of the former interim CEO in the second quarter of 2011, and- the bargain purchase gain related to the ClearPoint acquisition in the first quarter of 2011. Impairment of Goodwill During the second quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a $21.1 million impairment of goodwill relating to both the MBS & Rates (previously captioned MBS/ABS & Rates) and Investment Banking reporting units. The evaluation was performed and the impairment was recognized as a result of the Company’s market capitalization remaining significantly below its book value for an extended period of time. Deferred Tax Asset – Valuation Allowance During the second quarter of 2012, the Company provided for a valuation allowance of $32.1 million on its net deferred tax assets, as the Company entered into a cumulative loss in the most recent three-year period, inclusive of the current quarter operating results. Such an assessment generally weighs the Company’s recent financial reporting losses to a greater extent than its projections of future taxable income. The impairment of goodwill and the valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax assets are non-cash charges and had no impact to the Company’s liquidity or the net capital of the Company’s broker-dealer subsidiary.
