Quoting Management: Michael Gooch, Executive Chairman of GFI, commented: “Regulatory, market and economic uncertainty combined with seasonally slow trading resulted in difficult trading conditions in the fourth quarter. Non-GAAP net revenues and brokerage revenues were down 9.2% and 13.1%, respectively, in the fourth quarter compared to 2011. However, despite these conditions, GFI’s software, analytics and market data revenues grew 16.6% year over year in the fourth quarter, largely due to growth at Trayport, and GFI moved forward with on-going technology development and cost-reduction initiatives. We expect to continue to expand our higher-margin, subscription-based Trayport and Fenics software businesses by leveraging their networks and diversifying their product offerings.”
