Change in Segment Reporting

As noted in the prior reporting period, the Company continually monitors and reviews its segment reporting structure in accordance with authoritative guidance to determine whether any changes have occurred that would impact its reportable segments. Because of the change in the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”) of the Company at the end of 2017, the Company experienced a strategic shift to refocus the Company’s businesses on a set of differentiated products which are aligned to the content and insight within the Company’s domain of expertise.

During the second quarter of 2019, the Company realigned the information that the CODM regularly reviews to evaluate performance for operating decision-making purposes, including evaluation and allocation of resources.  As a result, the Company will disclose its financial information in a new segment structure for the period ended June 30, 2019. 

This structure includes two business segments: Operating Co and Asset Co. The structure is based on the Company's domain expertise as a driver of balance sheet harmonization and repeatable revenues for its operating business versus the Company’s long-term monetization strategies.

  • The Operating Co segment consists of Cowen Investment Management (“CIM”), Investment Banking, Markets and Research.
     
  • The Asset Co segment consists of the Company’s private investments, private real estate business and other legacy multi-sector long/short equity strategies.

The Company will provide additional details on this segment reporting change in its Second Quarter 2019 earnings release on July 26.
