GAIN Capital to Sell $65m of Notes to Fund Acquisitions

GAIN Capital, the financial group behind US Forex broker Forex.com has just announced that it will offer to certain institutional parties to purchase senior convertible notes worth a total of $65 million. The move aims at raising funds so that the group pays for further acquisitions and repays some outstanding debts.

 
The convertible notes, as many of you perhaps know, are types of bonds that a holder can convert into stock or cash. GAIN said the purchasers would be able to convert the notes into stock in the company or cash between June 1, 2018 and the maturity date on December 1, 2018 in any circumstamces. Before June 1, 2018, the conversion will be possible under certain conditions only. The final terms of the offering and the notes conversion will be stipulated during negotiations between GAIN and the buyers. Talking about buyers, let's mention that the initial purchasers of  notes will be Jefferies LLC and Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, a Stifel Company.
 
More interestingly, the news of the placement of notes comes just a couple of days after FXCM, a rival of GAIN in the US Forex market, announced a boost to its credit facility, with the move obviously aimed at securing funds for acquisitions. GAIN has already made a step towards boosting its institutional FX segment by acquiring GFT earlier this year. And during the third-quarter conference call, chief executive Glenn Stevens said the company would seek further acquisitions in this area. Moreover, Stevens said back then that the company would seek to generate 50% of its revenues from its non-retail business in the long term. Apparently, GAIN is beefing up its financials as it pursues this aim.
 
Getting back to the notes theme, we should stress that they will be available solely in private offerings. In addition, the purchasers will be given the opportunity to make use of a 30-day option worth as much as $10 million.
