CBOE Holdings Inc, which runs the Chicago Board Options Exchange, said on Thursday that second-quarter profit fell 11%. Net income fell to $24.9 million, or 27 cents a share, from $28.1 million, or 31 a share, a year earlier. Results from the latest quarter include certain one-time expenses, including for index options litigation.

Revenue rose to $112.6 million from $109 million, as stock-market volatility boosted trading at the biggest U.S. options market.

The report is CBOE’s first since CEO William Brodsky led the company through its $339 million initial public offering in June.
