Capital markets revenue was $6.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared with $28.2 million for the same period in 2011, a decrease of $21.7 million, primarily due to a lower number of equity capital market transactions for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared with the same period in 2011.
