Here is a great story on it:

The final three sentences are great:

Penson, which posted its eighth consecutive quarterly loss earlier this month, has been trying to improve its balance sheet and bottom line through asset sales and streamlining its operations.

In March, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services downgraded its speculative ratings on Penson Worldwide by five notches on the brokerage and clearing firm's planned debt restructuring and expectations that Penson's business won't materially improve any time soon.

Shares of Penson were halted after hours Thursday. The stock is off 92% over the past 12 months


See that's what happens when most of the stocks you clear are pennies and you are hit with hedging fees and VaR fees. Hence why they started passing along the costs after the price increases by NSCC that largely targeted Penson in the first place.
