Management Commentary

"Operating metrics for the second quarter demonstrate our continued progress in executing on our revenue volatility reduction initiatives," said Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer. "The implementation of our new, AI-driven hedging model, which we began rolling out in March, enables us to optimize our hedging activity and reduce variability in our results. These efforts helped deliver revenue per million of $107 during the second quarter. We are pleased with our progress during the first half of the year and, following the sale of our GTX business, feel we are in an even stronger position to continue to drive growth and profitability as we focus on our core retail business."

Additional Revenue Detail, Tax Rate and Share Count Assumption Update

The reported $107 revenue per million of Retail Revenue included $3 per million of non-operating foreign exchange revenue arising from translation of positions to the Company's various subsidiaries' functional reporting currencies.  This FX exposure was also hedged as part of the Company's ordinary course corporate hedging program, which resulted in approximately $2.2 million of negative revenue recorded within Other Revenue in the period.

Following the completed sale of GAIN's GTX ECN business on June 29th, 2018, the Company has updated its tax rate assumptions for full year 2018. Excluding the GTX business, GAIN expects its tax rate for the full year to be approximately 27%-28%. Including GTX ECN results for the first half of 2018 and one-off costs related to the sale of the business, the Company expects its full year 2018 tax rate to be approximately 13%.

The Company also estimates its weighted-average common shares outstanding for the second quarter 2018 to be approximately 45.3 million shares.
