SCHEDULE 13D
CUSIP No. 36268W100
 
Page 4 of 9 Pages

Item 1.
Security and Issuer

This Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D (this "Statement") relates to shares of the Common Stock, $0.00001 par value (the "Common Stock"), of Gain Capital Holdings, Inc. (the "Issuer"). The address of the Issuer's principal executive office is Bedminster One, 135 Route 205/206, Bedminster NJ 07921.

Item 2.
Identity and Background

(a), (b), (c) and (f).  This Statement is filed on behalf of the following two persons, who are collectively referred to as the “Reporting Persons”:


1.
JB Capital Partners, L.P. (“JB Capital”) is a limited partnership formed under the laws of the State of Delaware. Its business address is 5 Evan Place, Armonk, New York 10504.  JB Capital's principal business is making investments in marketable securities.


2.
Alan W. Weber (“Weber”) is a United States citizen. His business address is 5 Evan Place, Armonk, New York 10504. Mr. Weber's principal business is acting as an investment adviser and as the general partner of JB Capital. By virtue of his position with JB Capital, Mr. Weber has the power to vote and dispose of the Common Stock owned by JB Capital.

(d) and (e).  None of the Reporting Persons has during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction, and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

Item 3.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The aggregate purchase price of the 2,893,807 shares of Common Stock beneficially held by JB Capital and Mr. Weber is $18,340,088 (including brokerage fees and expenses).  All of the shares of Common Stock beneficially held by JB Capital and Mr. Weber were paid for using its working capital, and personal funds, respectively.

Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction

(a)-(j).  The Common Stock has been acquired by the Reporting Persons for investment purposes.

On February 27, 2020, the Issuer announced it would be acquired by merger with a subsidiary of INTL FCStone Inc. at $6.00 per share in cash.  The Reporting Persons believe the merger price should be increased by at least $2.00 per share (to $8.00 or more per share) to reflect the improved results (as evidenced by higher adjusted EBITDA and net income) of the Issuer starting on February 27, 2020.


SCHEDULE 13D
CUSIP No. 36268W100
 
Page 5 of 9 Pages

In its Current Report on Form 8-K dated April 10, 2020, the Issuer reported that for the period commencing on February 27, 2020 (the first trading day since the signing of the merger agreement) through March 31, 2020 volatility increased very significantly as compared with both the period commencing on January 1, 2020 through February 26, 2020 (the pre-signing period) and the first quarter of 2019.  As a consequence of the volatility, for the period commencing on February 27, 2020 through March 31, 2020 (the post-signing period) adjusted EBITDA was $90.5 million and net income was $65.5 million.  In the Preliminary Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) on April 10, 2020, the Issuer’s management projected (January 2020 projections) adjusted EBITDA of $37 million for the entire year 2020.  The Issuer reported, in a press release dated February 27, 2020 and filed with the Commission on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated such date, 2019 adjusted EBITDA of negative $4.6 million.  In a little over one month since the signing of the merger agreement, the Issuer’s adjusted EBITDA is almost three times the combined adjusted EBITDA for 2019 and the projected adjusted EBITDA for 2020.    The Reporting Persons believe that the increase in cash generated and net income of the Issuer since February 27, 2020 (until the merger closes) belongs to the current (pre-acquisition) stockholders of the Issuer.  The Reporting Persons estimate that net income for the post-signing period was almost $2 per share.  Accordingly, with the volatility already seen in April 2020, the Reporting Persons estimate that the Issuer will gain at least $2 per share in net income prior to the closing of the merger transaction.  Accordingly, the Reporting Persons believe that the Board of Directors must negotiate a merger price of $8.00 or more per share to reflect the performance of the Issuer since February 26, 2020.

The Reporting Persons may acquire additional shares of Common Stock, dispose all or some of these shares of Common Stock from time to time, in each case in the open market or private transactions, block sales or purchases or otherwise, or may continue to hold the shares of Common Stock, depending on business and market conditions, their continuing evaluation of the business and prospects of the Issuer and other factors.  In addition, the Reporting Persons intend to communicate with other shareholders and management of the Issuer about maximizing the value of their shares of Common Stock.

Depending on factors deemed relevant by the Reporting Persons, including but not limited to a change in the Issuer's business, governance or financial situation, the Reporting Persons reserve the right to formulate other plans and/or make proposals, and take such other actions as the Reporting Persons, or any of them, may determine.

Presently the Reporting Persons have no plans or proposals which would relate or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein.

Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a)-(b) As of April 22, 2020, the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock and percentage of the outstanding Common Stock of the Issuer beneficially owned (i) by each of the Reporting Persons, and (ii) to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, by each other person who may be deemed to be a member of a group, is as follows:
