"We are particularly pleased that our US operations turned in a particularly solid performance with 38% sequential growth in volume from the second quarter 2011."

"In addition, on October 7th we closed our acquisition of Foreland Forex in Japan which more than doubles our presence in Japan, the world's largest retail FX market, and will increase our customer equity in excess of $1 billion," he continued.
