“Overall, I am pleased with our operating performance in Q2. Our business responded well to the challenge of low volumes and volatility, which characterized most of the quarter as well as the positive impact of Brexit at the tail end of the period. We also made significant progress in the quarter on a number of key strategic initiatives that will grow our business over time. I am very pleased to announce that we have partnered with J.P. Morgan on an initiative to marry our proprietary systems and order routing with J.P. Morgan trading experience through a technology and trading partnership in the dealer to dealer U.S. Treasuries market. In addition, as previously announced, we made a key strategic investment in a thriving Japanese Proprietary Trading System venue to advance our market making opportunities in Japan; and we continue to make progress providing execution services to select blue-chip buy-side firms, leveraging Virtu’s superior order routing and analytical technology,” said Douglas Cifu, Chief Executive Officer of Virtu Financial.

Strategic Initiatives Update

Technology Products and Services

We have entered into a strategic partnership with J.P. Morgan Chase whereby Virtu will provide technology and market access to J.P. Morgan. J.P. Morgan will use Virtu’s technological capabilities to access and trade dealer to dealer markets in U.S. Treasuries. The agreement is for a three year minimum term.

Douglas Cifu commented on the agreement with J.P. Morgan: “We have a longstanding relationship with J.P. Morgan on many fronts. J.P. Morgan has been a key business partner of Virtu since our founding and has supported our business in many areas. Our collaboration in trading and technology is a natural progression of this very important relationship. We believe this agreement will be a win-win for both parties where J.P. Morgan can benefit from applying Virtu’s technology to certain markets and Virtu can benefit from leveraging its existing technological footprint to serve banks like J.P. Morgan.”

Agency Execution Services

During the second quarter, we have begun to provide order routing capabilities and post-trade analysis to institutional investors and the initial feedback has been very positive. We are onboarding additional buy-side firms in the US and efforts are underway to expand this offering to EU Equities, highlighting the scalability of the Virtu model.

Strategic Minority Investment in SBI Japannext

As announced on July 5, 2016, Virtu is making a strategic minority investment in SBI Japannext, Co., Ltd., a leading Proprietary Trading System ("PTS") based in Tokyo. The investment is part of Virtu’s strategic long-term commitment to the Japanese marketplace. Japannext operates a round-the-clock venue with 29 active members (local and global brokerage houses) and is the oldest thriving PTS venue in Japan. We expect this investment to enhance our overall APAC Equities franchise by offering Virtu unique market making opportunities and be beneficial in the long term from an investment standpoint. This transaction closed on July 27, 2016.

Trading income, net, decreased 1.9% to $166.5 million for this quarter, compared to $169.8 million for the same period in 2015. Net income increased 419.3% to $39.3 million for this quarter, compared to $7.6 million for the same period in 2015, mainly as a result of a one-time charge in connection with the Company’s Initial Public Offering in April 2015.

Business Performance

For the second quarter of 2016, Adjusted Net Trading Income decreased 3.4% to $102.3 million for this quarter, compared to $105.9 million for the same period in 2015. Adjusted Net Income decreased 18.1% to $45.8 million for this quarter, compared to $55.9 million for the same period in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 10.3% to $65.8 million for this quarter, compared to $73.3 million for the same period in 2015. Assuming all non-controlling interests had been exchanged for common stock, and the Company’s Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes was subject to corporation taxation, Normalized Adjusted EPS was $0.24 for this quarter.

Since our inception, we have sought to broadly diversify our market making across securities, asset classes and geographies, and as a result, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, we achieved a diverse mix of Adjusted Net Trading Income results, with no one category constituting more than 30.1% of our total Adjusted Net Trading Income. Average daily Adjusted Net Trading Income was approximately $1.599 million for this quarter compared to $1.680 million for the same period in the previous year.

As of June 30, 2016, Virtu was connected to more than 235 unique market venues in 36 countries and made markets in over 12,000 financial instruments.

1 Under our methodology for recording ‘‘trading income, net’’ in our condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income, we recognize
revenues based on the exit price of assets in accordance with applicable U.S. GAAP rules, and when we calculate Adjusted Net Trading
Income for corresponding reporting periods, we start with trading income, net. By contrast, when we calculate Adjusted Net
Trading Income by category, we recognize revenues on a daily basis, and as a result prices used in recognizing revenues may differ.
Because we provide liquidity on a global basis, across asset classes and time zones, the timing of any particular daily Adjusted Net Trading
Income calculation can effectively defer or accelerate revenue from one day to another or one reporting period to another, as the case
may be. We do not allocate any resulting differences based on the timing of revenue recognition.

Financial Condition

As of June 30, 2016, Virtu had $149.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, and total long-term debt outstanding in an aggregate principal amount of $497.3 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items

To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we use the following non-GAAP measures of financial performance:

  • "Adjusted Net Trading Income", which is the amount of revenue we generate from our market making activities, or trading income, net, plus interest and dividends income and expense, net, less direct costs associated with those revenues, including brokerage, exchange and clearance fees, net. Management believes that this measurement is useful for comparing general operating performance from period to period. Although we use Adjusted Net Trading Income as a financial measure to assess the performance of our business, the use of Adjusted Net Trading Income is limited because it does not include certain material costs that are necessary to operate our business. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Trading Income should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by revenues or expenses that are not directly associated with our market making activities.
  • "Adjusted Net Income", which measures our operating performance by adjusting Net Income to exclude amortization of purchased intangibles and acquired capitalized software, severance, transaction advisory fees and expenses, termination of office leases, equipment write-off, share based compensation, charges related to share based compensation at IPO, 2015 Management Incentive Plan, and charges related to share based compensation awards at IPO.
  • "EBITDA", which measures our operating performance by adjusting Net Income to exclude financing interest expense on our senior secured credit facility, depreciation and amortization, amortization of purchased intangibles and acquired capitalized software, equipment write-off and income tax expense, and "Adjusted EBITDA", which measures our operating performance by further adjusting EBITDA to exclude severance, transaction advisory fees and expenses, termination of office leases, share based compensation, charges related to share based compensation at IPO, 2015 Management Incentive Plan, and charges related to share based compensation at IPO.
  • “Normalized Adjusted Net Income”, “Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes”, “Normalized provision for income taxes”, and “Normalized Adjusted EPS”, which we calculate by adjusting Net Income to exclude certain items including IPO-related adjustments and other non-cash items, assuming that all vested and unvested Virtu Financial LLC units have been exchanged for Class A Common Stock, and applying a corporate tax rate of 35.5%.

Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes and Normalized Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures used by management in evaluating operating performance and in making strategic decisions. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures or similar non-GAAP measures are used by research analysts, investment bankers and lenders to assess our operating performance. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes and Normalized Adjusted EPS provide useful information to investors regarding our results of operations because they assist both investors and management in analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes and Normalized Adjusted EPS provide indicators of general economic performance that are not affected by fluctuations in certain costs or other items. Accordingly, management believes that these measurements are useful for comparing general operating performance from period to period. Furthermore, our credit agreement contains covenants and other tests based on metrics similar to Adjusted EBITDA. Other companies may define Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes and Normalized Adjusted EPS differently, and as a result our measures of Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes and Normalized Adjusted EPS may not be directly comparable to those of other companies. Although we use these non-GAAP financial measures as financial measures to assess the performance of our business, such use is limited because they do not include certain material costs necessary to operate our business.

Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted Net Income should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, Net Income in accordance with U.S. GAAP as a measure of performance. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes and Normalized Adjusted EPS should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income, Normalized Adjusted Net Income before income taxes, Normalized provision for income taxes, Normalized Adjusted EPS and our EBITDA-based measures have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • they do not reflect every cash expenditure, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • our EBITDA-based measures do not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payment on our debt;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced or require improvements in the future, and our EBITDA-based measures do not reflect any cash requirement for such replacements or improvements;
  • they are not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our statements of cash flows;
  • they do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations; and
  • they do not reflect limitations on our costs related to transferring earnings from our subsidiaries to us.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted Net Income are not intended as alternatives to Net Income as indicators of our operating performance and should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or as measures of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations. We compensate for these limitations by using Adjusted Net Trading Income, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Normalized Adjusted Net Income along with other comparative tools, together with U.S. GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. These U.S. GAAP measurements include Net Income (loss), cash flows from operations and cash flow data. See below a reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

About Virtu Financial, Inc.

Virtu is a leading technology-enabled market maker and liquidity provider to the global financial markets. We stand ready, at any time, to buy or sell a broad range of securities and other financial instruments, and we generate revenue by buying and selling securities and other financial instruments and earning small amounts of money on individual transactions based on the difference between what buyers are willing to pay and what sellers are willing to accept, which we refer to as "bid/ask spreads," across a large volume of transactions. We make markets by providing quotations to buyers and sellers in more than 12,000 securities and other financial instruments on more than 235 unique exchanges, markets and liquidity pools in 36 countries around the world. We believe that our broad diversification, in combination with our proprietary technology platform and low-cost structure, enables us to facilitate risk transfer between global capital markets participants by supplying liquidity and competitive pricing while at the same time earning attractive margins and returns.
