FXCM Inc. (NYSE: FXCM), a leading online provider of foreign exchange, or FX, trading and related services, today announced for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, revenues under US GAAP of $102.6 million, compared to $94.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, an increase of 8%. Adjusted Pro Forma EBITDA for the first quarter 2012 was $24.9 million, compared to $25.5 million for the first quarter 2011, a decrease of 2%. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income was $12.5 million for the first quarter 2012, compared to $13.7 million for the first quarter 2011, a decrease of 9%. Adjusted Pro Forma fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter 2012 of $0.17 on a fully exchanged, fully diluted basis, compared to $0.18 per share for the first quarter 2011, a decrease of 6%. U.S. GAAP net income was $2.9 million for the first quarter 2012, compared to $2.8 million for the first quarter 2011, an increase of 4%. U.S. GAAP earnings per share for the first quarter 2012 was unchanged at $0.16 per fully diluted Class A share, compared the first quarter 2011.
 
Adjusted Pro Forma results assume the conversion and exchange of all FXCM Holdings, LLC Units into FXCM Inc. Class A common stock, resulting in the elimination of the non-controlling interest and the corresponding adjustment to the entity’s tax provision. In addition, Adjusted Pro Forma results eliminate certain non-recurring charges and certain equity based compensation expense.
 
“FXCM delivered strong growth in the quarter despite a weak trading environment in foreign exchange. Customer equity grew by 8% to $1.1 billion from year-end 2011 and is up 47% from March 2011. We achieved near record volumes in our retail business with over $985 billion in customer volume – some $15.2 billion a day – in part because of the strength in our Japanese business,” said Drew Niv, Chief Executive Officer.
 
“Our institutional business had a near record with $398 billion in customer volume. We are most pleased with these results as we have begun to roll out our own internally developed institutional trading platform which we believe will make us more competitive in the very large institutional foreign exchange market.”
 
In addition, FXCM Inc. today announced certain key operating metrics for April 2012 for its retail and institutional foreign exchange business. Monthly activities included:
 
April 2012 Operating Metrics
