Merrill Lynch Says Credit Market Conditions to Adversely Impact Third Quarter 2007 Results

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MER) today announced that challenging credit market conditions will have an adverse impact on its net earnings for the third quarter. The company expects to report a net loss per diluted share of up to $0.50, resulting from significant negative mark-to-market adjustments to its positions in two specific asset classes: collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) and sub-prime mortgages; and leveraged finance commitments. These mark-to-market adjustments primarily affect Merrill Lynchs Fixed Income, Currencies & Commodities (FICC) business. The company expects to report revenue growth in excess of 20% over the 2006 third quarter in each of its other major business lines: Equity Markets (excluding the firms private equity business), Investment Banking and Global Wealth Management. Merrill Lynch expects to report a solid revenue performance from the rest of its FICC business, considering market conditions, and expects strong performance from its operations outside the U.S., led by the Pacific Rim region.
