Raymond James Financial reported net income of $46.8 million, or $0.37 per share, for the period ended June 30 vs. income of $60.7 million, or $0.48 per share, for the year-ago period on July 20.
Excluding a $45 million pre-tax charge for the repurchase of auction rate securities, net income would have been $74.9 million, or $0.59 per share in the most-recent period, a 23 percent increase over the prior year’s quarter and a slight decrease from a strong earlier quarter this year, the company says.
Net revenues were $850.4 million, up 14 percent year over year, and “essentially flat” with the prior quarter, Raymond James said in a press release. The firm reported quarterly records for assets under management ($36.6 billion) and assets under administration ($278 billion) as of June 30, 2011.
“Most of our businesses performed well this quarter,” said CEO Paul Reilly, in a press release. A high-net-worth team that manages more than $500 million recently joined Raymond James & Associates from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney: Thomas A. Seiler and his brother Patrick M. Seiler, CIMA, CFP, are now part of the Newtown, Pa.-based employee-channel office of Raymond James.
