Cowen Group Slips To Loss In Q4

Cowen Group Inc. (COWN) reported that its fourth-quarter net loss attributable to stockholders was $79.90 million or $0.21 per share, compared to net income of $4.11 million in the same quarter last year.

Economic Loss excluding certain non-cash items was $25.53 million, compared to Economic Income of $12.45 million last year.

Revenues for the quarter declined to $49.53 million from $69.73 million in the prior year quarter. Total Economic Income revenue for the fourth quarter 2011 was $70.2 million, a 31% decrease compared to $101.0 million in the fourth quarter 2010. The decline in Economic Income revenue was primarily the result of a decrease in investment banking fees and brokerage revenues, partially offset by an increase in management fees.
