Hi Randy,
By "latest release" do you mean the press release on 3/28/19 regarding First Quarter 2019 Financial Results? If so, they do not present all of the needed information to calculate book value. They do give the total equity and tangible equity numbers for the "Jefferies Group LLC and subsidiaries" but that is just the investment bank and related financial subsidiaries. It doesn't include the merchant bank piece or the cash and NOLs at the parent. Although the name change was supposed to simplify the reporting periods and understanding of corporate structure, using the name Jefferies for both the parent and the IB/financial division can be just as confusing. The parent is referred to as "Jefferies Financial Group". The press release says they expect to file the 10-Q on April 9, which is when you can get all the needed numbers.

Good hunting!
