Ladenburg Thalmann Sends Annual Letter To Shareholders

Stocks in this article: LTS

In order to capitalize on these favorable market dynamics, we completed the transformational acquisition of Securities America in 2011. We are glad to report that it has been a seamless transition for Securities America into the Ladenburg family.

After announcing the transaction in August and closing the deal in November of last year, we are especially pleased with our success in retaining an extremely high percentage of advisors at Securities America. With Securities America’s “best in breed” independent broker-dealer platform and service-focused culture, we significantly increased our market share and further established our leadership position in this appealing market.

Importantly, Securities America has continued to operate on an independent basis under the leadership of Jim Nagengast and his talented team; a formula that has worked well for us with our prior acquisitions of Triad Advisors and Investacorp, which have also continued to grow and perform very well under the strong leadership of Mark Mettelman and Patrick Farrell. We have continued to enhance all three firms by making investments in technology and practice management tools, adding capabilities in the asset management area, and broadening access to capital markets products, proprietary institutional equity research and trust services.

Looking forward, we are excited about the opportunities to continue to drive strong growth at all of our independent brokerage firms, both organically and through disciplined strategic acquisitions.
