Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
The Ziegler Companies, Inc., a diversified financial services holding company, today released its financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2012.
In the three months ended June 30, 2012, total revenues for the quarter were $18,641,000 compared to $16,602,000 in the second quarter of 2011. Net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $485,000 or 40 cents per basic and diluted share compared to a net income of $1,553,000 or 1.28 per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2011.
For the six months ended June 30, 2012, total revenues were $37,096,000 compared to $28,094,000 for the same period in 2011. Net income for the six-month period was $770,000 or 65 cents per basic and diluted share in 2012 compared to a net income of $423,000 or 35 cents per basic and diluted share for the same period in 2011.

“The persisting low levels of interest rates led to quite a large refinancing wave that was key to our first-half results. Revenues and net income both up… that’s a good feeling. But, we remain acutely aware of the uncertainty in the air, especially for the financial services sector,” commented Ziegler’s CEO, Tom Paprocki. “Bringing expert advice and superior execution on behalf of our clients is a Ziegler trademark and it continues to serve us well.”
