Management Commentary
"During the second quarter, pockets of volatility in the British Pound and Indices helped improve revenue capture in our Retail business to approximately $130 per million, increasing the trailing twelve-month metric by 6% to $110. In addition, our Futures business experienced its second highest average daily contracts this year, up 11% over the prior year, with revenue per contract for the quarter of approximately $5.15. However, overall volatility and customer trading activity remained quiet during the quarter as we saw a continuation of tightly range-bound markets, with the Eurodollar setting a new consecutive quarterly record for tightest range," stated Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital.

"Our strategic focus on marketing continues to be an effective use of capital to attract new customers with new direct accounts up 75% year-over-year. Sequentially, new direct accounts were up 3% quarter over quarter, from a similar level of marketing spend. With a stable active account base and growing interest from new customers, we feel well positioned to capitalize on increased volatility upon the return of more normal market conditions," continued Mr. Stevens.

Share Count and Tax Rate Assumption Update
The Company estimates its weighted-average common shares outstanding for the second quarter 2019 to be approximately 37.2 million shares. The forecast tax rate for the half year is estimated to be approximately 15% on a normalized basis.
