Funded retail accounts up 8.7% to 77,013
Client assets up 28.8% to $286.4 million
"Third quarter year-on-year revenue growth reflected strong performance in our established markets as well as the continued acceleration of our international expansion. Our strong net revenue and EBITDA performance also demonstrate GAIN's ability to effectively manage the business during periods of significant market volatility, as we experienced in the third quarter, and our solid EBITDA margin of 28.8% underscores the operating leverage inherent in our business model," commented Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer. By the way his salary according to the SEC filling is about $2 million
"In the third quarter, we continued to successfully grow both our retail and institutional businesses, which posted significant year-on-year and sequential volume increases. In particular, our institutional platform, GAIN GTX, showed strong growth, with volume increasing to $260.0 billion, accounting for 36.7% of third quarter trading volume, compared to 12.2% in the third quarter of 2010. Our core retail operating metrics also progressed year-on-year, demonstrating the competitive strengths of our technology, products and service offerings, as well as the net benefit of the dbFX business we acquired from Deutsche Bank AG earlier this year," Mr. Stevens continued. Gain Capital’s Q2 report reveals that Gain paid just $2.5 million in upfront cash to Deutsche Bank for the assets acquired from dbFX .
Recent Developments
The Board of Directors has voted to initiate a quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share, to be paid on December 23, 2011 to shareholders of record as of December 10, 2011
After approving a $10.0 million share repurchase plan in May 2011, the Company has purchased 0.85 million shares for a total of approximately $5.0 million to date
The Company recently expanded its revolving credit facility from $20.0 million to $50.0 million
"We are continuously evaluating ways to optimize the allocation of our capital. The initiation of a quarterly dividend and stock repurchase program, while also maintaining a strong cash position and a $50.0 million revolving credit facility, demonstrates our ability to return value to shareholders without compromising the Company's ability to actively pursue M&A and other strategic opportunities," Mr. Stevens concluded.
