NEW YORK, NEW YORK, November 2, 2020 – Greenhill & Co., Inc. (NYSE: GHL) today reported revenues of $56.0 million, a net loss of $9.4 million and loss per share of $0.49 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
The Firm’s third quarter 2020 net loss and loss per share compare to net income of $14.9 million and income per share of $0.63 for the third quarter 2019.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, revenues of $170.9 million compare to revenues of $194.3 million in the comparable period in 2019, a decrease of $23.4 million, or 12%. For the first nine months of 2020, a net loss of $31.9 million and a loss per share of $1.69 compare to a net loss of $13.2 million and a loss per share of $0.54 for the same period in 2019.
The third quarter and year to date 2020 per share figures were negatively impacted by our share count that (due to our loss) reflects basic shares outstanding figures, which are 3.3 million and 3.6 million shares, respectively, lower than a fully diluted share count would have been if we had reported income.
The Firm’s revenues and net income can fluctuate materially depending on the number, size and timing of completed transactions on which it advised and other factors. Accordingly, the revenues and net income in any particular period may not be indicative of future results.
