IFMI Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

PHILADELPHIA and NEW YORK, May 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Institutional Financial Markets, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IFMI), a financial services firm specializing in credit-related fixed income investments, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Adjusted operating loss was $5.6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to adjusted operating income of $4.3 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, and adjusted operating loss of $4.1 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The current quarter was unfavorably impacted by an unrealized mark-to-market loss on the Company's Star Asia investment of $6.0 million, primarily driven by weakening of the Japanese Yen during the quarter. Without the $6.0 million mark-to-market loss, IFMI would have generated $0.4 million of adjusted operating income in the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted operating income (loss) is not a measure recognized under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). See Note 1 on page 2.

"While IFMI's first quarter financial results were significantly impacted by an unfavorable mark-to-market loss on our Star Asia investment, we are emboldened by the fact that absent this non-cash mark, we would have otherwise been modestly profitable at the adjusted operating income level," said Daniel G. Cohen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IFMI. "While we also saw reduced trading volumes in the first quarter, our prudent cost management positively impacted our performance, as non-compensation operating expenses decreased $1.1 million from the fourth quarter of 2012. Discounting the mark-to-market loss that reduced our revenues for the first quarter, we believe we are well positioned to deliver improving results over the next three quarters. We believe our expanded leadership team and additional capital will increase our ability to grow shareholder value. Overall, when considering the impact of our Star Asia results, I am enthused."
