The contribution was recorded as a capital contribution and increased member's equity by $362.3 million. For further details, refer to Note 4, Leucadia and Related Transactions, to the Company's consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on From 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2015.

See accompanying notes to condensed financial statements.

JEFFERIES GROUP LLC
(PARENT COMPANY ONLY)
NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS



Note 1. Introduction and Basis of Presentation
The accompanying condensed financial statements (the "Parent Company Financial Statements"), including the notes thereto, should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of Jefferies Group LLC (the "Company") and the notes thereto found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2015. For purposes of these condensed non-consolidated financial statements, the Company's wholly owned and majority owned subsidiaries are accounted for using the equity method of accounting ("equity method subsidiaries").
On March 1, 2013, Jefferies Group LLC, through a series of transactions, became an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Leucadia National Corporation (“Leucadia”) (referred to herein as the “Leucadia Transaction”). Each outstanding share of Jefferies Group LLC was converted into 0.81 of a share of Leucadia common stock (the “Exchange Ratio”). Leucadia did not assume nor guarantee any of the Company's outstanding debt securities. The Company's 3.875% Convertible Senior Debentures due 2029 are convertible into Leucadia common shares. The Leucadia Transaction is accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting, which requires that the assets, including identifiable intangible assets, and liabilities of Jefferies Group LLC be recorded at their fair values. The application of the acquisition method of accounting has been pushed down and reflected in the financial statements of Jefferies Group LLC as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leucadia. The application of push down accounting represents the termination of the prior reporting entity and the creation of a new reporting entity, which do not have the same bases of accounting. As a result, the Company's financial statements are presented for periods subsequent to March 1, 2013 for the new reporting entity (the “Successor”), and before March 1, 2013 for the prior reporting entity (the “Predecessor.”) The Predecessor and Successor periods are separated by a vertical line to highlight the fact that the financial information for such periods has been prepared under two different cost bases of accounting.
The Parent Company Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for financial information. The significant accounting policies of the Parent Company Financial Statements are those used by the Company on a consolidated basis, to the extent applicable. For further information regarding the significant accounting policies refer to Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the Company's consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2015.
The Company has made a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare these financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP. The most important of these estimates and assumptions relate to fair value measurements, goodwill and intangible assets, the ability to realize deferred tax assets and the recognition and measurement of uncertain tax positions. Although these and other estimates and assumptions are based on the best available information, actual results could be materially different from these estimates.


Note 2. Transactions with Subsidiaries

The Parent Company has transactions with its equity method subsidiaries, Leucadia and certain other affiliated entities determined on an agreed upon basis and has guaranteed certain unsecured lines of credit and contractual obligations of certain equity method subsidiaries. The Parent Company received cash distributions from its equity method subsidiaries totaling $176.7 million, $54.0 million, $677.7 million and $20.1 million for the years ended November 30, 2015 and 2014, the nine months ended November 30, 2013 and the three months ended February 28, 2013, respectively.


Note 3. Guarantees

In the normal course of its business, the Parent Company issues guarantees in respect of obligations of certain of its wholly owned subsidiaries under trading and other financial arrangements, including guarantees to various trading counterparties and banks. The Parent Company records all derivative contracts and Financial instruments owned and Financial instruments sold, not yet purchased at fair value on its consolidated statements of financial condition.

Certain of the Parent Company's equity method subsidiaries are members of various exchanges and clearing houses.In the normal course of business, the Parent Company provides guarantees to securities clearinghouses and exchanges. These guarantees generally are required under the standard membership agreements, such that members are required to guarantee the performance of other

(PARENT COMPANY ONLY)
NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - CONTINUED

members. Additionally, if a member becomes unable to satisfy its obligations to the clearinghouse, other members would be required to meet these shortfalls. To mitigate these performance risks, the exchanges and clearinghouses often require members to post collateral. The Parent Company's obligations under such guarantees could exceed the collateral amounts posted. The maximum potential liability under these arrangements cannot be quantified; however, the potential for the Parent Company to be required to make payments under such guarantees is deemed remote. Accordingly no liability has been recognized for these arrangements.

The Parent Company has provided a guarantee in respect of certain obligations of Jefferies Finance LLC that matures in January 2021, whereby the Parent Company is required to make certain payments to an SPE sponsored by Jefferies Finance in the event that Jefferies Finance is unable to meet its obligations to the SPE and a guarantee of a credit agreement for a fund owned by employees. At November 30, 2015, the maximum amount payable under these guarantees is $21.8 million.

The Parent Company guarantees certain financing arrangements of subsidiaries. The financing arrangements totaled a maximum obligation of $62.0 million at November 30, 2015.


Note 4. Regulatory Requirements

For a discussion of the Company’s regulatory requirements, see Note 21 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2015. At November 30, 2015 and 2014, $5,203 million and $5,358 million, respectively, of net assets of the Parent Company's equity method subsidiaries are restricted as they reflect regulatory capital requirements or require regulatory approval prior to the payment of cash dividends and advances to the Parent Company.
