Quoting Management: Shaun D. Lynn, President of BGC, said: “Newmark Grubb Knight Frank’s quarterly revenues and pre-tax earnings grew substantially year-on-year. Because of the combination of strong industry dynamics in commercial real estate and our proven ability to grow and build brokerage businesses, we believe that our Real Estate Services segment will deliver substantial earnings growth for the foreseeable future. We believe that NGKF is an extremely valuable asset and that the market will eventually recognize its value. Our diversification into Real Estate Services reduced the impact of the industry-wide declines in activity during the quarter across many financial products.”
