GAMCO Reports Lower Earnings, Will Buy Back More Shares

News summary by MFWire's editors

Gamco gave shareholders a mixed set of news. On the one hand the asset managers saw its earnings decline. On the other hand it will buy back more shares.

Gamco saw its earnings drop nearly 20 percent to $14.46 million, or 51 cents a share, during the second quarter. That is down from $18 million, or 63 cents a share in June of 2007. That earnings falloff was a far steeper decline than its fall in AUM.

Total AUM slipped 7.5 percent from last year to $28.3 billion at the end of June. That number is also a decrease of 1.3 percent from the end of the first quarter.

Gamco Investors' board has greenlighted the repurchase of up to an additional 400,000 shares of its Class A Common Stock. Currently, there are about 1.08 million shares authorized for repurchase.

Gamco (NYSE: GBL) share price closed Wednesday at $46.97, down from Tuesday's close of $47.29.
