Jefferies Group, the investment bank run by Richard Handler, said fixed-income revenue dropped 56% to $126m in the first quarter amid fewer high-yield bond offerings.

Bloomberg News reports that total revenue fell 34% to $591.7m in the three months ended February 28 compared with a year earlier, the company, which is owned by Leucadia National, said Tuesday in a statement.

'We experienced a slow first quarter due to a tepid fixed income-trading market and fewer new issues in leveraged finance capital markets', Handler, 53, and Leucadia President Brian Friedman, 59, said in the statement.
