Net revenues of $34.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, declined by $54.6 million compared to the prior-year period. This was largely attributable to non-agency asset-backed securities gains of approximately $34.8 million in the prior-year period, coupled with the significant turnover in 2012 described above, as well as lower net interest income.
Net revenues were $18.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, an improvement of $0.9 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 and $3.1 million compared to the third quarter of 2011. This improvement was primarily due to higher commissions and principal transaction revenues due to higher volumes, including an expanded product profile when compared to the third quarter of 2011. The increase in volumes over the third quarter of 2011 was partially offset by lower spreads.
