Forex.com announces its financial results for 2011

GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. ("GAIN") (NYSE: GCAP), the leading global provider of online trading services operating Forex.com, announced its results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2011.

 

"Fourth quarter market conditions reflected an unusual confluence of factors that caused us to report a loss for the period. There was a drop-off in market volatility, spikes of market uncertainty, and very tight trading ranges in major currencies such as the Euro and Yen. These dynamics, which contributed to a 18.2% sequential decrease in retail trading volumes, altered the composition of our order flow and impacted our ability to optimize spread capture. Throughout the quarter, we nonetheless continued to invest in being the best service provider in our asset class. We are confident that our ongoing focus on customers will enable us to continue to drive growth of a loyal client base going forward," said Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer.
 
"Despite these exceptional factors, we achieved a 20.1% EBITDA margin for the full year, and the underlying business remained strong. Retail trading volume was up 18.8% for the full-year, while our institutional business continued to gain momentum and delivered 298.5% trading volume growth in 2011. GAIN GTX is now at an inflection point, and we expect it to become a meaningful contributor in 2012. We continue to pursue several opportunities to further expand GAIN's geographic reach and product offerings in order to drive long-term growth," Mr. Stevens concluded.
