"Volatility in the currency markets is currently at lows only seen twice in the past 20 years," said Drew Niv, Chief Executive Officer. "However, having grown our business so significantly in the past few years, we believe we have the scale to continue to weather the difficult trading conditions relative to our competition and use them to expand our market share for when conditions improve." 
 
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.
