A non-U.S. GAAP ("non-GAAP") measure. For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, see "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Selected Summary Financial Information." We believe that presenting our results and measures on an adjusted basis in conjunction with U.S. GAAP measures provides the most meaningful basis for comparison of our operating results across periods.

 

(2)

A non-GAAP measure. See the "Additional Shareholder Information" section for a detailed explanation of the adjustment made to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure. We believe that the rolling 12 month return on average tangible common shareholders' equity is a meaningful measure of our return on tangible assets deployed in the business.

 

For the second quarter of 2015, on a U.S. GAAP basis, net revenues were $164.1 million, and net income was $17.0 million, or $1.08 per diluted common share.

“We continue to produce consistently strong results,” said Andrew S. Duff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, "with our public finance and advisory businesses leading the way this quarter. Our steady performance over the past few years has positioned us to take advantage of growth opportunities like the major expansion into FIG and the acquisition of BMO Capital Markets GKST we announced recently."

Second Quarter Results – Non-GAAP Basis
Throughout the Adjusted Consolidated Results and Business Segment Results sections of this press release we present financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"). The non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments to exclude (1) revenues and expenses related to noncontrolling interests, (2) amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions and (3) compensation for acquisition-related agreements. Management believes that presenting results and measures on an adjusted basis in conjunction with U.S. GAAP measures provides the most meaningful basis for comparison of its operating results across periods. For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, see "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Selected Summary Financial Information."

Adjusted Consolidated Results
For the second quarter of 2015, adjusted net revenues were $163.9 million, down 2% compared to $166.7 million in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted net revenues increased 5% compared to the first quarter of 2015 due to strong debt financing and advisory services revenues, partially offset by investment losses.

For the second quarter of 2015, adjusted compensation and benefits expenses were $102.7 million, up slightly compared to the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted compensation and benefits expenses increased 9% compared to the first quarter of 2015 due primarily to higher revenues.

For the second quarter of 2015, adjusted compensation and benefits expenses were 62.6% of adjusted net revenues, compared to 61.0% and 60.7% for the second quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015, respectively. The adjusted compensation ratio increased compared to both the year-ago period and the sequential quarter due to a change in our mix of business. The adjusted compensation ratio was also higher compared to both periods due to compensation expenses associated with significant hiring in our Capital Markets segment as we build a financial institutions group.

Adjusted non-compensation expenses were $32.0 million for the second quarter of 2015, down 3% compared to the year-ago period and up 1% compared to the first quarter of 2015.

Business Segment Results
The firm has two reportable business segments: Capital Markets and Asset Management. Consolidated net revenues and expenses are fully allocated to these two segments.

Capital Markets
For the quarter, Capital Markets generated adjusted pre-tax operating income of $24.3 million, compared to $23.1 million and $22.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015, respectively.

Adjusted net revenues were $146.0 million, up 1% and 7% compared to the year-ago period and the first quarter of 2015, respectively.

Asset Management
For the quarter ended June 30, 2015, Asset Management generated adjusted pre-tax operating income of $4.9 million, down 45% and 31% compared to the second quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015, respectively.

Net revenues were $17.9 million, down 19% and 9% compared to the second quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015, respectively. The decrease compared to the year-ago period was due to lower management fees from our value equity product offerings, partially offset by increased management fees from our MLP product offerings. Also, investment loss was $0.7 million for the current quarter, compared with income of $1.1 million and $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015, respectively.

Other Matters
In the second quarter of 2015, we repurchased $59.4 million, or approximately 1,200,000 shares of our common stock, at an average price of $49.53 per share. We have $7.9 million remaining on our share repurchase authorization, which expires on September 30, 2016.

Rolling 12 month return on average tangible common shareholders' equity is computed by dividing net income applicable to Piper Jaffray Companies' for the last 12 months by average monthly common shareholders' equity less average goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. Management believes that the rolling 12 month return on average tangible common shareholders' equity is a meaningful measure of our return on tangible assets deployed in the business. Average common shareholders’ equity is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to average tangible shareholders’ equity. The following is a reconciliation of average common shareholders’ equity to average tangible common shareholders’ equity:
 
  As of   As of   As of
(Amounts in thousands) June 30, 2015 Mar. 31, 2015 June 30, 2014
Average common shareholders’ equity $ 811,208 $ 803,670 $ 740,280

Average tangible common shareholders’ equity $ 568,384   $ 559,024   $ 491,184
 
  Tangible book value per share is computed by dividing tangible common shareholders’ equity by common shares outstanding. Tangible common shareholders’ equity equals total common shareholders’ equity less goodwill and identifiable intangible assets. Management believes that tangible book value per share is a meaningful measure of the tangible assets deployed in our business. Shareholders’ equity is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to tangible shareholders’ equity. The following is a reconciliation of shareholders’ equity to tangible shareholders’ equity:
 
  As of   As of   As of
