“We are pleased to report another strong quarter, even in the face of regulatory and competitive hurdles in the asset management industry.  We have confidence in our business model of growing organically through our marketing and sales programs and through identifying strategic acquisitions,” said Neil Hennessy, President, Chairman and CEO of Hennessy Advisors, Inc.  “We remain committed to our dividend program, now in its thirteenth year.”

“The U.S. stock market continued its steady rise during the quarter.  I believe solid fundamentals and robust economic data are overshadowed by the constant ‘what ifs’ of political news and rhetoric.  If more pro-business policies are implemented into law, especially those relating to regulation, healthcare, taxation and infrastructure, I believe the solid fundamentals already in place may improve and could drive the U.S. economy and the stock market to another year of growth,” added Mr. Hennessy.
