FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jefferies Reports Fiscal First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

NEW YORK– March 17, 2015 -- Jefferies Group LLC today announced financial results for its fiscal first quarter 2015.  

Highlights for the three months ended February 28, 2015, with adjusted amounts excluding the operating results of our Bache business:

  • Total Net revenues of $592 million
  • Total Adjusted Net Revenues (excluding Bache) of $536 million1
  • Net earnings of $13 million
  • Adjusted Net earnings (excluding Bache) of $20 million1

Richard B. Handler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Brian P. Friedman, Chairman of the Executive Committee, commented: “We experienced a slow first quarter due to a tepid fixed income trading market and fewer new issues in leveraged finance capital markets. Despite these results, and in view of an improving environment, we believe Jefferies’ prospects for the remainder of 2015 are good. Our Investment Banking backlog is currently solid, and fixed income trading markets appear to have stabilized.”

The attached financial tables should be read in connection with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2014.
