These results reflect the inclusion of Jefferies Group LLC and its subsidiaries since its acquisition; as a result operating results for Jefferies are reflected in the 2014 period only. Net revenues and pre-tax income for 2013 include realized and unrealized gains of $410.3 million, comprised of an unrealized mark-to-market gain of $182.7 million on Jefferies shares owned prior to the merger and a realized gain of $227.6 million related to the sale of Inmet Mining Corporation.
Richard Handler, CEO, and Brian Friedman, President, said: "The first quarter is our fourth full quarter of results since the combination of Leucadia and Jefferies. We are pleased to have completed the integration of the team that now works with us to source, review and structure new investments and acquisitions; solidified and expanded our board of directors; monetized historic investments for total proceeds of $2.5 billion (including sales prior to our merger starting July 1, 2012 and including the pending sale of Premier Entertainment Biloxi); raised an aggregate of $2.9 billion of long-term capital at the parent level, Jefferies and two of our associated companies (since January 1, 2013); and invested over $900 million in cash since March 1, 2013 in new and follow-on investments in Harbinger Group, Leucadia Asset Management, Linkem, Garcadia and Juneau Energy. Additionally, the last two quarters reflected strong results for Jefferies, our largest operating business. We currently are actively pursuing merchant banking opportunities to invest our significant capital in a prudent and thoughtful manner, as well as working to continue to build value at our subsidiaries and investee companies."
