"The challenging market conditions of the third quarter resulted in lower than expected average daily volumes and revenue capture," commented Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital.  "However, the volatility outlook is improving as a result of several market drivers including Brexit, global interest rate uncertainty and the U.S. elections," continued Mr. Stevens. "In addition, we are executing on several key initiatives that we believe will enhance our customer experience which will lead to increased customer engagement and drive long-term value for both clients and shareholders," concluded Mr. Stevens.

(*) Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income/(Loss) to Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted EPS

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure and represents our net income excluding restructuring, acquisition and integration related expenses, adjustment to fair value of contingent consideration and other non-recurring items.  This non-GAAP financial measure has certain limitations, including that it does not have a standardized meaning and, therefore, our definition may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and/or analysts. Thus, it may be more difficult to compare our financial performance to that of other companies. We believe our reporting of adjusted net income assists investors in evaluating our operating performance. However, because adjusted net income is not a measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, such measure should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other measures of our financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP, such as net income.

Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income/(Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents our earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, purchased intangible amortization, restructuring, acquisition and integration-related expenses, legal settlement, non-controlling interest, adjustment to fair value of contingent consideration and bad debt expense related to the SNB event in January of 2015. This non-GAAP financial measure has certain limitations, including that it does not have a standardized meaning and, therefore, our definition may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and/or analysts. Thus, it may be more difficult to compare our financial performance to that of other companies. We believe our reporting of adjusted EBITDA assists investors in evaluating our operating performance. However, because adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, such measure should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other measures of our financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP, such as net income.
