November 12, 2012, Jefferies announced its merger with Leucadia, its largest shareholder. Jefferies was valued at $3.8 billion at the time of the acquisition, then becoming Jefferies Group LLC. The investment bank has agreed on a $25 million deal to settle with regulators after suspected trading abuse involving mortgage-backed securities after the financial crisis. The deal includes a non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Connecticut. According to Bloomberg News Jefferies Group will pay $11 million to counterparties affected in the trades, $10 million to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and $4 million to resolve a parallel investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which remains subject to the agency’s final approval.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Hartford, Thomas Carson, declined to comment. Jesse Litvak, Ex-Jefferies & Co. Managing Director was arrested in January 2013 over charges that he defrauded customers of more than $2 million on trades of residential mortgage-backed securities from 2009 to 2011. Wall Street Journal reported that in a court filing, Mr. Litvak’s lawyers said the investors he is alleged to have deceived were all “sophisticated market participants” capable of analyzing bonds to determine reasonable prices to pay.
