Management Commentary

“We’ve made significant progress this year building the foundation for future growth and the diversity of our business offerings helped to deliver another strong quarter despite the volatile environment,” said Gloria E. Gebbia, controlling shareholder and board member of Siebert. “Siebert’s mission-driven culture and client-focused approach has enabled our success over the years and allowed us to overcome a myriad of obstacles and challenges. Our efforts to build a stronger, more diversified business are already showing momentum and we will continue to evolve as a company. We are well-positioned to capitalize on the evolving needs of our clients as a mission-driven company with a robust offering and strong financial position to execute on our growth strategy.”

Andrew Reich, CFO of Siebert, commented: “We delivered another quarter of solid financial results as our business has adapted to challenging market conditions. Strong performance in our Securities Finance division and higher interest income helped partially counter weaker revenues related to commissions and fees, principal transactions, and market making relative to the prior year period. Our Securities Finance division continues to be a key growth driver for Siebert and achieved another record quarter delivering year-over-year revenue growth of 21% in the third quarter and 58% year-to-date relative to the first nine month of 2021. We delivered an improvement to both our operating income and margins in the third quarter as we continue to improve profitability. Operating income for the third quarter grew 27% year-over-year and included a temporary unrealized loss of $1.4 million on our U.S. government securities portfolio compared to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2022. Looking ahead, we remain focused on sustained growth and continue to benefit from the rising interest rate environment and expect that trend to continue in the fourth quarter and throughout 2023.” **
