NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Assets Holding Corporation (the 'Company') (Nasdaq:INTL) today announced its fiscal year 2011 first quarter financial results. Sean O'Connor, CEO of International Assets, stated, "This was a record quarter for us with a 17.5% return on equity and EPS of $0.62 (both on an adjusted marked-to-market basis). Adjusted operating revenues were up 67% from a year ago with all of our business units showing strong gains. This result was due to improved market conditions, as well as, initial revenue synergies generated from integration of recent acquisitions, offset by continuing low interest rates."

Certain financial metrics discussed in this press release are non-GAAP, reflecting marked-to-market adjustments in the Company's Commodity & Risk Management Services segment. A reconciliation of those metrics to GAAP equivalents is provided in the table below, and further discussion of the use of non-GAAP metrics is provided in the Company's Form 10-Q, filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
