MarketAxess Reports Third Quarter 2012 Revenues Of $48.3 Million, Pre-Tax Income Of $21.2 Million And Record Diluted EPS Of $0.36

MarketAxess Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: MKTX), the operator of a leading electronic trading platform for U.S. and European corporate bonds, emerging markets bonds and other types of fixed-income securities, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

“We are pleased with our solid market share gains in U.S. high-grade this quarter and the continued strong growth in high-yield and emerging markets trading volume. U.S. high-grade TRACE volume also rebounded significantly in the past two months, following softer volumes in August,” said Richard M. McVey, chairman and chief executive officer of MarketAxess. “As announced earlier this morning, MarketAxess has agreed to buy Xtrakter Limited, a provider of regulatory transaction reporting, trade matching services and data services to the European securities market. We believe this acquisition will provide MarketAxess European clients with an expanded set of technology solutions ahead of incoming regulatory mandates from MiFID II in Europe.”

Third Quarter Results

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2012 increased 3.6% to $48.3 million, compared to $46.6 million for the third quarter of 2011. Pre-tax income was $21.2 million, compared to $22.3 million for the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of 4.9%. Net income totaled $13.5 million, or a record $0.36 per share on a diluted basis, compared to $13.4 million, or $0.34 per share on a diluted basis, for the third quarter of 2011.

Commission revenue for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $42.4 million on total trading volume of $137.8 billion, compared to $39.8 million in commission revenue on total trading volume of $131.7 billion for the third quarter of 2011. U.S. high-grade trading volume as a percentage of FINRA’s U.S. high-grade TRACE trading volume increased to a record estimated 12.5%, compared to an estimated 11.6% for the third quarter of 2011.

All other revenue, which consists of technology products and services, information and user access fees, investment income and other revenue, was $5.9 million, down 12.8% from $6.7 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decline was primarily due to lower technology professional service fees.
