MarketAxess Reports Second Quarter 2013 Record Revenues Of $65.6 Million, Record Pre-Tax Income Of $31.5 Million And Diluted EPS Of $0.51

MarketAxess Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: MKTX), the operator of a leading electronic trading platform for fixed-income securities, and the provider of market data and post-trade services for the global fixed-income markets, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

“We are gratified with the operating performance achieved this quarter in a period of rising interest rates and a shift in investor sentiment. The record volumes in our three core products - high grade, high yield and emerging markets – were driven by growth in market share and led to record revenues and pre-tax income,” said Richard M. McVey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MarketAxess. “We are also pleased with the promising momentum in our Open Trading initiatives and the positive response to our early integration efforts in Europe with Xtrakter.”
