Net income on an adjusted basis was $16.1 million or $0.20 per fully diluted, fully exchanged share for the fourth quarter 2014, compared to Net income on an adjusted basis of $7.3 million or $0.10 per fully diluted, fully exchanged share for the fourth quarter 2013, an increase of 120% and 100% respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA, Net income on an adjusted basis and Net income on an adjusted basis per fully diluted, fully exchanged share are Non-GAAP financial measures.

See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" beginning on A-3 of this release for additional information regarding these Non-GAAP financial measures and for reconciliations of such measures to the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. Management believes that the disclosed Non-GAAP measures when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures are useful to investors to compare FXCM's results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of FXCM's operating results. These measures do not represent and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, net income attributable to FXCM Inc. or net income per Class A share or as a substitute for cash flow from operating activities, each as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and our calculations of these measures may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted Non-GAAP results begin with information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, adjusted to exclude certain items and reflects the conversion of all units of FXCM Holdings, LLC ("Holdings") for shares of Class A common stock of FXCM Inc. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The differences between Adjusted Non-GAAP and U.S. GAAP results are as follows:

  1. Assumed Exchange of Units of Holdings for FXCM Inc. Class A Shares. As a result of the exchange of Holdings units, the non-controlling interest related to these units is converted to controlling interest. The Company's management believes that it is useful to provide the per-share effect associated with the assumed exchange of all Holdings units.
  2. Compensation Expense. Adjustments have been made to eliminate expense relating to stock based compensation relating to the Company's IPO, costs associated with the negotiation of an employee contract, as well as costs associated with the acquisition of V3 Markets, LLC. Given the nature of these expenses, they are not viewed by management as expenses incurred in the ordinary course of business and management believes it is useful to provide the effects of eliminating these expenses.
  3. Lucid Minority Interest/Compensation Expense. Our reported U.S. GAAP results reflect the portion of the 49.9% of Lucid earnings allocated among the non-controlling members of Lucid based on services provided as a component of compensation expense under Allocation of income to Lucid members for services provided. Adjustments have been made to reclassify this allocation of Lucid's earnings attributable to non-controlling members to "Net (loss) income attributable to other non-controlling interests". The Company's management believes that this reclassification provides a more meaningful view of the Company's operating expenses and the Company's economic arrangement with Lucid's non-controlling members. This adjustment has no impact on net income as reported by the Company.
  4. Acquisition Costs/Income. Adjustments have been made to eliminate certain acquisition related costs/income. Given the nature of these items, they are not viewed by management as expenses/income incurred in the ordinary course of business and management believes it is useful to provide the effects of eliminating these items.
  5. Regulatory Costs. Adjustments have been made to eliminate certain costs (including client reimbursements) associated with ongoing discussions and settling certain regulatory matters. Given the nature of these expenses, they are not viewed by management as expenses incurred in the ordinary course of business and management believes it is useful to provide the effects of eliminating these expenses.
  6. Income Taxes. Prior to the IPO, FXCM was organized as a series of limited liability companies and foreign corporations, and even following the IPO, not all of the Company's income is subject to corporate-level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates. This assumption is consistent with the assumption that all of Holdings units are exchanged for shares of FXCM Inc. Class A common stock, as discussed in Item 1 above, as the assumed exchange would change the tax structure of the Company. In addition, adjusted income tax provision reflects the tax effect of any Non-GAAP adjustments.
