"Market conditions continued to be very challenging in the 2012 first quarter, with the Euro and other major currencies trading in a narrowing range and market volatility reaching four and a half year lows. Within this challenging environment, we successfully managed expenses to achieve positive EBITDA despite a decline in revenue," said Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer.
"There were several bright spots in the quarter. Overall, client engagement in our retail business remained strong due to the strength of our brand and our focus on execution quality, providing better tools, and our commitment to high levels of customer service.  As a result, on a year over year basis client assets increased 15%, while the average account size grew 34% and the average trade size was stable at $43,046.  The number of active accounts and volume per active account were stable from a year earlier, at 36,041 and $11.1 million, respectively. On the institutional side, our GAIN GTX platform continues to gain traction, with trading volume rising to $468.0 billion, up from $110.1 billion."
"We continue to actively explore opportunities to diversify our revenue sources through product development and targeted acquisitions, leveraging our technology infrastructure, brand recognition and financial resources to build shareholder value," Mr. Stevens said.
