Focused on Growth
Growth is what drives us. Growing and mid-sized companies and their investors
comprise the most dynamic, thriving sector of the economy—and their businesses
and opportunities are as unique as their needs. We believe these companies are often
overlooked and underserved. Our mission is to meet their needs. From providing
capital and delivering unbiased advice, to matching buyers and sellers and selecting
research coverage, these companies and their investors inspire us. In 2005,
we were recognized as the “Middle Market Investment Bank of the Year” by
Investment Dealers’ Digest, while achieving our sixth consecutive year of
record results and creating significant returns for our shareholders.

Six years ago, we analyzed our Firm, our competitors, our clients and our future, and recognized there was 5.
a tremendous opportunity to fill a much-needed role serving growing and mid-sized companies and their
investors—a market segment in which we had naturally and increasingly specialized since our founding in
1962. Our goal was to understand their industries, and give these companies and their investors the tools
and support needed for all stages of growth, investment and transition. In true Jefferies fashion, we rolled
up our sleeves and went to work.
We began by investing in and leveraging our powerful equity, high yield and convertible trading platforms.
We revamped our research and research sales groups, with a focus on superior analysis, breadth and depth
of coverage and forward thinking ideas to create value for our buy-side clients. At the same time, we
sought to expand our investment banking platform in terms of breadth of industry coverage and full-service
product capabilities through a combination of key hires, acquisitions of outstanding specialty firms, and
joint ventures with world-class partners. Finally, we diversified and sought to balance our platform with
quality asset management teams and vehicles to leverage our relationships.
Meanwhile, the trend of consolidation and retrenchment in investment banking has worked in our favor.
Our primary competitors of the 1980s and 1990s are virtually all gone, swallowed up by huge banks.
These banks have in turn continued their own evolution, placing their priorities away from growth
companies and the middle market. Meantime, our focus has become only stronger, and our Firm even
more nimble and responsive.We believe we embody the now-rare Wall Street culture of a creative, hands-on,
client-focused and relationship-driven firm.
Six Years of Record Results
We are proud to have delivered our sixth consecutive year of record net revenues, earnings and earnings
per share.These results were achieved through both challenging and favorable environments, and are the
direct result of the dedication of our more than 2,000 employee-partners, and the loyalty of our broad and
unique client base.Total revenues in 2005 were up 25 percent over the prior year to a record $1.5 billion,
with net revenues up 14 percent to $1.2 billion. Net earnings were up 20 percent to a record $157.4 million
and earnings per share (diluted) were up 13 percent to a record $2.32. Investment banking revenues were up
40 percent to a record $495 million.Total stockholders’ equity was up 24 percent to $1.3 billion, or $22.14
2005 ANNUAL REPORT
We are proud to have delivered our sixth
consecutive year of record net revenues, earnings
and earnings per share. Across the board, our
Firm delivered solid results and our financial
position remains strong, with $2 billion in capital.
6. per share, and we ended the year with an equity market capitalization of over $3.1 billion (fully diluted).
Across the board, our Firm delivered solid results and we believe we are executing well on our strategy to
become the leading Wall Street firm focused on growing and mid-sized companies and their investors.
Compensation and benefits as a percentage of net revenues were down slightly, while non-comp expenses,
excluding interest expense, were up modestly, as we invested in increased occupancy, technology and
business development costs associated with the integration of acquisitions and a 15 percent increase in
headcount. Our pre-tax operating margin was 22.3 percent for the year.
Growing & Diversifying Our Revenues
We have worked very hard to build on our capital markets expertise, and expand the breadth of our
capabilities and industry reach. Compared with six years ago, there is a healthy shift from a primarily
brokerage-driven revenue stream to a more balanced mix of sales and trading, investment banking and asset
management. Investment banking revenues totaled $495 million and accounted for more than 40 percent
of the Firm’s net revenues in 2005, up from 15 percent six years ago. Revenues from investment banking
are a combination of advisory services and capital markets products, with broad industry representation.
Our sales and trading platform, the backbone of our Firm, represented 50 percent of our net revenues,
totaling nearly $600 million from primarily equity-based products, with a healthy increase in fixed-income
revenues.The reputation of our research product continued to make great strides.We now cover over
1,100 companies, up nearly 15 percent over the prior year, primarily comprised of growth and mid-cap
companies in our focus industries. Our asset management activities, including asset management fees and
investment income from managed funds, now account for nearly 6 percent of revenues, representing the
foundation of a third leg to our platform.We are confident that this business is well-positioned to grow
significantly in the coming years.
We believe we can best serve growing and mid-sized companies and their investors by continuing to
enhance our core competencies, as we strive to build a great firm.The specific activities of our business
units are covered in more detail in our business review later in our Annual Report.
JEFFERIES GROUP, INC .
We have a solid foundation for future growth and
scalability, and have tremendous momentum going
into 2006. We are gaining traction in our focus
markets, as demonstrated by our recently being
named Middle Market Investment Bank of the
Year by Investment Dealers’ Digest.
A Strong & Liquid Capital Position 7.
Our balance sheet is solid, with $2 billion in capital, 83 percent of our book value tangible, and cash,
cash equivalents and short-term investments (including required deposits) exceeding $900 million as of
year-end. During the year, we repurchased nearly 2 million shares at an average price of $38.73 per share.
Employee ownership remains high, with the Jefferies family, which includes employees, board members and
retirees serving as consultants, owning approximately 50 percent of the fully diluted outstanding equity of
the firm. Our stock continues to outperform all relevant benchmarks, with a compounded annualized
return of nearly 22 percent since 1999. Within the past two years, quarterly dividends paid per share
increased nearly 90 percent, from 8 cents to 15 cents. The Wall Street Journal ranked ours the #1 stock in
Investment Services for 10-year stock performance for the past three years (3).
Moody’s Investment Services upgraded our long-term debt rating to BAA1 in January 2005.We have
been rated BBB by Standard & Poor’s since November 2003, and we were rated BBB+ by Fitch Ratings
in January 2006.We continue to maintain relatively low leverage and strong liquidity, with a pro forma
debt/equity ratio at year-end of approximately 109 percent.This compares to approximately 380 percent
for a cross-section of other full-service broker-dealers, reflecting the subsequent to year-end sale of
$500 million in aggregate principal amount of unsecured 6.25 percent 30-year senior debentures, and
MassMutual’s purchase of $125 million of our Series A convertible preferred stock, initially convertible
at $62 per share.
Gaining Recognition in Our Markets
More than ever before, our Firm is being recognized publicly for our leadership position. Investment
Dealers’ Digest named our Firm the “2005 Middle Market Investment Bank of the Year(4).” We maintained
leadership in the M&A and underwriting league tables, as well as equity trading rankings, and our equity
research effort ranked second in The Wall Street Journal’s 2005 “Best on the Street” analyst ranking (5). Forbes
Magazine named our Firm as one of the 2005 “Platinum 400 – America’s Best Big Companies,” ranking
us as the third Best Managed Company in Diversified Financials (6).

8. Acquisitions, Expansion and Strategic Partnerships
In February 2005, Jefferies acquired Randall & Dewey, a leading Oil & Gas industry M&A advisor, adding
meaningful depth to our strong presence in the energy sector and adding approximately 100 valuable new
partners to our platform. R&D’s deep industry knowledge, technical depth, strong commercial expertise
and long-term relationships with quality clients have quickly contributed to our Firm.This group closed
over 30 transactions in 2005, valued at more than $10 billion, and experienced a 50 percent increase in
dollar deal volume over their pre-acquisition performance in 2004.We are pleased with the integration of
this unit with our existing energy practice, and post-acquisition have made additions to our London- and
Calgary-based teams. Our integration of Randall & Dewey has followed a similar model to that of Jefferies
Quarterdeck, acquired in 2002, and Jefferies Broadview, acquired in 2003, both strong contributors to our
investment banking revenues in 2005. Our investment banking professionals now number nearly 400,
including technical specialists. During the year, we made key additions to our media & communications
and healthcare industry investment banking groups, among others, and have enhanced our M&A effort
On the trading side, we significantly enhanced our private client services, global commodity derivatives and
investment grade fixed income businesses. In research, we welcomed 10 analysts in the areas of energy,
technology, healthcare, industrials, telecommunications and investment grade fixed income, and hosted a
growing number of industry conferences for clients.We have more than 800 sales, trading and execution
professionals, and more than 120 research professionals worldwide. Since year-end, we made significant
additions in prime brokerage, electronic trading and equity products.
In May 2005, Jefferies acquired London-based Helix Associates, a leading private equity fund placement
firm. Helix was named “Boutique of the Year” at the 2005 European Private Equity Awards. Helix has
significantly expanded our offerings for the private equity, buyout and venture capital community.
Post-acquisition, we have taken steps to help drive the U.S. activities of this group. In April 2005, we
entered into a strategic alliance with Leumi & Company, the wholly owned Investment Banking unit of
Bank Leumi, Israel’s leading domestic markets securities underwriter, to enhance our Israeli technology
investment banking effort.

10. In January 2006, MassMutual, a AAA-rated world-class insurance company and investment manager, took
a strategic equity stake in Jefferies with the aforementioned purchase of a private placement of $125 million
of convertible preferred stock. Both Jefferies and MassMutual agreed to double our commitments to
Jefferies Babson Finance, our middle-market finance company joint venture formed in October 2004,
increasing the equity capital base to $500 million. With leverage, this will enable us to originate over
$10 billion of loans, and potentially offer multi-tranche, bridge, second lien, mezzanine and similar financings,
in addition to more traditional senior loans—adding a critical component to our leveraged finance capabilities.
We are confident this entity, now operating as Jefferies Finance, will provide cost-effective, long-term
capital to our corporate clients and support the continued growth of our investment bank.
In February 2006, Jefferies Asset Management, LLC became registered with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission as an investment adviser.

the global markets, and the future holds significant growth potential.
With the addition of a UK corporate broking team, we have invested in our UK equities business to
support our ability to raise capital in the London capital markets.We also added a UK equity research sales
team and research analysts to enhance coverage of UK energy and gaming companies, augmenting existing
coverage of technology, healthcare and special situations.We made significant inroads in India and Asia as
