Despite a pullback in September, the U.S. equity markets were up slightly during the third quarter of 2014 as the S&P 500 increased 0.6%. During the period, large cap stocks significantly outperformed small cap stocks. The value of the U.S. dollar increased significantly versus other major currencies and U.S. Treasuries performed well as the long end of the yield curve flattened during the period. The Federal Reserve announced its intention to end its tapering program in October. Uncertainties around corporate earnings, the upcoming U.S. elections, and concerns around the direction of interest rates weighed on the markets towards the end of the current period.

Albert G. Lowenthal, Chairman and CEO commented, “We are pleased with the 33.5% increase in pre-tax operating results during the period as the Company continues to focus on growing its core business lines. The investment banking business performed well during the period as the Company continued to reap the benefits of this re-energized business with continued improvements in both equity underwritings as well as advising on corporate advisory transactions. The Company's wealth management business produced strong results as both client assets under administration and client assets under management in fee-based programs remained at near record levels during the period. Retail investor participation and activity remained low showing little appetite for risk. The results in the Commercial Mortgage Banking origination business continued to be impacted by increased competition from commercial banks and a lower

1



level of client refinancing activity. However, during the period, we did achieve a milestone as the mortgage servicing portfolio reached $4.0 billion for the first time.

Events after the end of the reporting period have introduced high levels of market volatility with abrupt movements in the commodities and currency markets driving a "risk-off" stampede by market participants. The effects of geopolitical events, a disturbing Ebola outbreak, and fears of a significant slowdown in worldwide economic activity have recently driven the U.S. equities markets to give up all of their 2014 gains. In addition, oil prices have declined to levels not seen since 2012. These factors have created an unexpected influx of investments into the safety of the U.S. Treasury market."

Financial Highlights
Commission revenue was $110.9 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of 7.8% compared with $120.3 million for the third quarter of 2013 due to the low transaction volumes from retail investors during the current year quarter.
Advisory fees were $71.0 million during the third quarter of 2014, an increase of 18.0% compared with $60.1 million for the third quarter of 2013 due to increased levels of managed product assets.
Investment banking revenue increased 58.4% to $33.8 million for the third quarter of 2014 compared with $21.4 million for the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to increased fees from mergers and acquisitions activity during the current period.
Principal transactions revenue decreased 58.7% to $4.3 million during the third quarter of 2014 compared with the third quarter of 2013 due to lower trading profits in equities, corporate bonds, and government and agency securities during the current period.

Private Client

Private Client reported revenue of $142.6 million for the third quarter of 2014, 1.2% lower than the third quarter of 2013, primarily due to a decrease in transaction-based business during the current year period. Income before income taxes was $18.9 million, an increase of 25.3% compared with the third quarter of 2013, affected by a decrease in deferred compensation expense during the current period.

Client assets under administration were $88.3 billion at September 30, 2014 compared to $81.8 billion at September 30, 2013, an increase of 7.9%.
Financial Adviser headcount was 1,353 at the end of the third quarter of 2014, down from 1,400 at the end of the third quarter of 2013 reflecting the Company’s increased focus on financial adviser productivity.
Retail commissions were $73.1 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of 8.8% from the prior year quarter.
Advisory fee revenue on traditional and alternative managed products was $47.8 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of 19.5% over the prior year quarter (see Asset Management below for further information).
Money market fees continue to be negatively impacted by waivers in the amount of $7.8 million during the third quarter of 2014 versus waivers of $7.9 million during the third quarter of 2013.

Asset Management

Asset Management reported revenue of $24.8 million for the third quarter of 2014, 15.4% higher than the third quarter of 2013. Income before income taxes was $8.3 million, an increase of 29.4% compared with the third quarter of 2013, as a result of increased fees earned on managed products.
Advisory fee revenue on traditional and alternative managed products was $23.2 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of 15.2% over the prior year quarter. Advisory fees are calculated based on the value of client assets under management (“AUM”) at the end of the prior quarter which totaled $26.5 billion at June 30, 2014 ($22.5 billion at June 30, 2013) and are allocated to the Private Client and Asset Management business segments.
AUM increased 9.2% to $26.0 billion at September 30, 2014, compared to $23.8 billion at September 30, 2013, which is the basis for advisory fee billings for the fourth quarter of 2014. The increase in AUM was comprised of asset appreciation of $1.6 billion and net new assets of $0.6 billion.

Capital Markets

Capital Markets reported revenue of $71.2 million for the third quarter of 2014, 4.0% higher than the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to increased fees from mergers and acquisitions activity. Income before income taxes was $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2014, an increase of 32.5% compared with income before income taxes of $4.3 million for the third quarter of 2013.

Institutional equities commissions were $26.7 million for the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of 0.6% compared with the prior year period.
Advisory fees from investment banking activities more than tripled to $14.0 million in the third quarter of 2014 compared with the prior year period due to an increase in corporate finance advisory services during the current period.
Equity underwriting fees increased 2.6% to $13.9 million for the third quarter of 2014 compared with the prior year period.

3



Revenue from Taxable Fixed Income decreased 33.0% to $13.2 million for the third quarter of 2014 compared with the prior year period due to lower investor activity during the current period.
Public Finance and Municipal Trading revenue increased 8.9% to $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2014 compared with the prior year period.

Commercial Mortgage Banking

Commercial Mortgage Banking reported revenue of $6.3 million for the third quarter of 2014, 31.8% lower than the third quarter of 2013, due to a decrease in the dollar volume of loans originated during the 2014 period. Income before income taxes was $1.8 million, a decrease of 35.7% compared with the third quarter of 2013, due to the lower number of loans originated during the current year period.

Loan origination fees for the third quarter of 2014 were $2.0 million, a decrease of 26.0% compared with the prior year period, as the Company originated 13 commercial loans (18 in the third quarter of 2013) with an aggregate principal loan balance of $91.1 million ($193.0 million in the third quarter of 2013).
Net servicing revenue for the third quarter of 2014 was $1.4 million compared with $1.3 million for the comparable period in 2013.
Principal loan balances related to servicing activities totaled $4.0 billion at September 30, 2014, up 2.6% from September 30, 2013.

Compensation and Benefit Expenses

Compensation and benefits (including salaries, production and incentive compensation, share-based compensation, deferred compensation, and other benefit-related items) totaled $161.3 million during the third quarter of 2014, roughly flat when compared to the third quarter of 2013. Increases in incentive compensation were offset by decreases in production-related and deferred compensation obligations during the third quarter of 2014. Compensation and related expenses as a percentage of revenue was 65.9% during the third quarter of 2014 compared to 66.2% during the third quarter of 2013.

Non-Compensation Expenses

Non-compensation expenses were $72.4 million during the third quarter of 2014, a decrease of 2.3% compared to $74.1 million during the same period last year primarily due to lower debt service costs on the outstanding Senior Secured Notes during the current period.

Provision for Income Taxes

The effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2014 was 57.6% compared with 32.5% for the prior year third quarter. The significant increase in the effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2014 was due to the impact of non-deductible charges associated with the low-priced securities regulatory matters that were recorded during the first and second quarters of 2014 and their size relative to the amount estimated for income before taxes for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2014. The Company is required to use its best estimate to arrive at an effective annual tax rate for quarterly reporting purposes in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 270, Interim Reporting.
