NEW YORK, Nov. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FXCM Inc. (NASDAQ:FXCM), a leading online provider of foreign exchange, or FX, trading and related services, today announced for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, U.S. GAAP trading revenue from continuing operations of $57.8 million, compared to $56.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. U.S. GAAP net loss attributable to FXCM Inc. from continuing operations was $35.8 million (including a $27.0 million net loss on derivative liabilities) for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, or $6.39 per diluted share, compared to U.S. GAAP net income attributable to FXCM Inc. from continuing operations of $64.3 million (including a $137.6 million net gain on derivative liabilities), or $12.10 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, U.S. GAAP trading revenue from continuing operations was $196.6 million, compared to $184.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. U.S. GAAP net income attributable to FXCM Inc. from continuing operations was $85.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, or $15.34 per diluted share, compared to U.S. GAAP net loss attributable to FXCM Inc. from continuing operations of $427.9 million, or $86.13 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. These results include a $200.4 million net gain on derivative liabilities for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and a $254.7 million net loss on derivative liabilities for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

The net loss/gain on derivative liabilities consists of non-cash changes in the value of embedded derivatives associated with the Leucadia Letter and Credit Agreements (as described further below). The Letter Agreement is a component of the financing package provided by Leucadia National Corp. (“Leucadia”). On January 15, 2015, FXCM’s customers suffered negative equity balances due to the unprecedented move in the Swiss Franc after the Swiss National Bank (“SNB”) discontinued its peg of the Swiss Franc to the Euro. On January 16, 2015, FXCM entered into a financing agreement with Leucadia that permitted FXCM’s regulated subsidiaries to meet their regulatory capital requirements and continue normal operations after significant losses were incurred resulting from the events of January 15, 2015.

On September 1, 2016 we completed the restructuring of the financing arrangements with Leucadia (the “Leucadia Restructuring Transaction”). We amended the terms of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement") and replaced the Amended and Restated Letter Agreement (the "Letter Agreement") with a new Limited Liability Company Agreement. The restructuring deepens the partnership with Leucadia and provides Leucadia with a membership interest in our operating entity, FXCM Group, LLC.

U.S. GAAP trading revenue from discontinued operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $8.8 million, compared to $13.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. U.S. GAAP net loss attributable to FXCM Inc. from discontinued operations was $3.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared to U.S. GAAP net income attributable to FXCM Inc. from discontinued operations of $9.3 million, or $1.76 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

U.S. GAAP trading revenue from discontinued operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $22.6 million, compared to $60.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. U.S. GAAP net loss attributable to FXCM Inc. from discontinued operations was $14.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, or $2.67 per diluted share, compared to U.S. GAAP net loss attributable to FXCM Inc. from discontinued operations of $21.1 million, or $4.24 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, operating expenses include a $2.3 million settlement of a longstanding legal matter.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing and discontinued operations was $6.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to $5.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing and discontinued operations was $27.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to $25.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $2.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to a loss of $1.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $20.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 compared to a loss of $0.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA is a Non-GAAP financial measure. This measure does not represent and should not be considered as a substitute for net income or net income attributable to FXCM Inc., each as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and our calculations of this measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” beginning on A-3 of this release for additional information regarding this Non-GAAP financial measure and for a reconciliation of such measure to the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we have provided Adjusted EBITDA, a Non- GAAP financial measure. We believe this Non-GAAP measure, when presented in conjunction with the comparable U.S. GAAP measure, is useful to investors in better understanding our current financial performance as seen through the eyes of management and facilitates comparisons of our historical operating trends across several periods. We believe that investors use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in our industry that present similar measures, although the methods used by other companies in calculating Adjusted EBITDA may differ from our method, even if similar terms are used to identify such measure.

Adjusted EBITDA provides us with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain gains, losses or other charges that do not reflect the normal earnings of our core operations or that may not be indicative of our future outlook and prospects. Internally, Adjusted EBITDA is used by management for various purposes, including to evaluate our operating performance and operational strategies, as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting, and for compensation purposes.

Adjusted EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered as a substitute for net income or net income attributable to FXCM Inc., each as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA reflects the following adjustments to net income:

1. Compensation Expense/Lucid Minority Interest. 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 within discontinued operations. Adjustments have been made to eliminate this allocation of Lucid's earnings attributable to non-controlling members. We believe that this adjustment 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 from continuing operations as reported by the Company.

2. Regulatory and Legal Costs. Adjustments have been made to eliminate certain costs or recoveries (including client reimbursements, regulatory fines and settlements from lawsuits) associated with certain regulatory and legal matters. Given the nature of these expenses, they are not viewed by management as expenses incurred in the ordinary course of business and we believe it is useful to show the effects of eliminating these expenses.

3. SNB Costs. Adjustments have been made to eliminate certain costs/income (including the net losses associated with client debit balances, gains/losses on the derivative liabilities related to the Letter and Credit Agreements with Leucadia, costs related to the implementation of a Stockholder Rights Plan, costs related to the Leucadia Restructuring Transaction, professional costs, adjustments to the Company's tax receivable agreement contingent liability and insurance recoveries) associated with the January 15, 2015 SNB event. Given the nature of these expenses, they are not viewed by management as expenses incurred in the ordinary course of business and we believe it is useful to show the effects of eliminating these expenses.

4. Cybersecurity Incident. Adjustments have been made to eliminate certain costs/income related to investigative and other professional services, costs of communications with customers, remediation activities associated with the incident and insurance recoveries. Given the nature of these expenses, we believe it is useful to show the effects of eliminating these expenses.

5. Discontinued Operations. Adjustments have been made to eliminate the impact of goodwill impairments, gains or losses on classification as held for sale assets, gains or losses from completed asset sales and a gain related to the disposition of an equity method investment. Given the nature of these items, they are not viewed by management as activity in the ordinary course of business and we believe it is useful to show the effect of eliminating these items.

6. Provision for debt forgiveness. An adjustment has been made to eliminate the provision recorded against a notes receivable from the non-controlling members of Lucid that will not be required to be repaid and has been forgiven. Given the atypical nature of this expense for us, we believe it is useful to show the effect of eliminating this expense.
