"For the first week of February, we are now receiving net inflows of client funds."
 
"Our institutional business was affected somewhat in the month by the events of the 15th as a number of our institutional customers' prime brokers initially disconnected from FXCM. However, I am pleased to say that all but one of the numerous prime brokers used by our institutional clients are back with FXCM and we remain optimistic that this business is on course to return to the growth it was experiencing before the events of the 15th."
