North American electronic trading giant Gain Capital Holdings Inc (NYSE:GCAP) has today announced its net revenue for the third quarter of 2015, registering a dramatic increase at $127.9 million compared to $111.6 million in the second quarter of the year.
Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital today made a commercial statement on the results:
“This quarter reflects GAIN’s continued success in executing its strategy, particularly relating to the scaling and diversification of our retail business.”
“Reflecting the increased diversification of our retail revenue, four product groups contributed significantly to our total retail revenue for the quarter, with each achieving in excess of $10 million in revenue,”
“Non-FX products represented 50% of retail revenue year-to-date, which further illustrates GAIN’s progress on its diversification strategy. Third quarter average daily OTC volume of $15.6 billion represents an increase of 30% over the same period last year and reflects the impact of GAIN’s acquisition of City Index, as well as its ability to grow active accounts.”
“The integration of City Index is on track to achieve $40-$45 million in run-rate cost synergies by Q4 2016, with several significant milestones achieved during the quarter. We believe achievement of the targeted synergies and continued cost rationalization provide GAIN with a significant opportunity to continue to expand our margins.”
