Management Commentary
 
"GAIN's operating metrics continue to exhibit positive monthly and annual growth following the closing of our acquisition of City Index on April 1.  In our retail business, volumes increased 12.2% in June from the prior month and average daily volume reached a new high of $17.1 billion.  Retail revenue capture during the quarter was challenging, however, coming in towards the lower end of the range of the last four quarters, which was $70 to $116 per million, primarily due to lower volatility in indices and commodities.  The integration of City Index is on track, and we expect to achieve the previously disclosed annual run-rate cost savings of $40-$45 million by 2017," remarked Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer.
