"For the fourth straight year LPL Financial increased revenue, generating 13% growth year-over-year to a record $4.1 billion," stated Mark Casady, chairman and CEO of LPL Financial. "Revenue growth was driven by advisor productivity and investor engagement, which for the first time since the market break in 2008 were sustained over the course of a full year, as well as by strong market appreciation. Adjusted earnings per share grew for a fifth consecutive year, up 20% to a record $2.44 per share. Adjusted earnings per share benefited from strong growth in operating profits and our decision to repurchase 5.8 million shares during 2013, despite pressure from the low interest rate environment and $5 million in incremental share-based compensation for our advisor stock program that was marked to market due to our share price appreciation."
