Second Quarter Highlights

  • KCG grew its market share of retail SEC Rule 605 U.S. equity share volume among the leading market makers by more than two percentage points
  • KCG BondPoint set a new quarterly record for average daily fixed income par value traded
  • KCG recorded a pre-tax gain of $33.4 million from the sale of a portion of its investment in Bats
  • KCG grew consolidated revenues 22.2 percent year over year or 9.4 percent after adjusting for the gain from the sale of a portion of its Bats shares
  • KCG repurchased 3.5 million shares of KCG Class A Common Stock for $46.5 million and warrants for $14.2 million

Daniel Coleman, Chief Executive Officer of KCG, said, “Despite relatively poor market conditions for most of the second quarter, KCG produced reasonable financial results. KCG market making in U.S. equities had another strong quarter with a revenue capture of 1.07 basis points. In addition, our franchise ETF desk and KCG BondPoint both showed continued growth in revenues and market share. The results were further lifted by a sizeable gain from the sale of a portion of the company’s investment in Bats, a part of the proceeds from which went toward funding more than $60 million in stock and warrant repurchases during the quarter.”

Market Making
The Market Making segment encompasses direct-to-client and non-client, exchange-based market making across multiple asset classes and is an active participant in all major cash, options and futures markets in the U.S., Europe and Asia. During the second quarter of 2016, the segment generated total revenues of $211.8 million and pre-tax income of $40.5 million.

In the second quarter of 2016, market volumes of U.S. equities were muted due to uncertainty over impending market events and the macroeconomic outlook. For the quarter, average daily consolidated U.S. equity dollar volume rose just 1 percentage point year over year. Average daily retail SEC Rule 605 dollar volume declined approximately 8 percentage points over the same period. A rise in market volatility was largely confined to the final week of the quarter. The lack of conviction extended to market volumes of U.S. equity futures and options contracts. Outside of U.S. equities, market-wide trading activity also declined in European equities, U.S. Treasuries and currencies from a year ago.

Mr. Coleman commented, “Although the market for U.S. equities was relatively quiet until the tail end of the quarter, KCG Market Making produced strong results. The performance of quantitative trading models and market share gains of retail order flow drove the performance. Notwithstanding, lower realized volatility constrained results as did the broad declines in market volumes for certain asset classes and products year over year.”

In the first quarter of 2016, the segment generated total revenues of $258.9 million and pre-tax income of $75.5 million. Included in first quarter revenues is a $2.9 million gain from the sale of assets related to retail U.S. options market making.

In the second quarter of 2015, the segment generated total revenues of $192.3 million and pre-tax income of $4.4 million, which included accelerated stock-based compensation expense of $19.8 million resulting from stockholder-approved changes made during the quarter related to outstanding equity awards.

Global Execution Services
The Global Execution Services segment comprises agency execution services and trading venues. During the second quarter of 2016, the segment generated total revenues of $68.1 million and pre-tax income of $1.7 million.

In the second quarter of 2016, institutional trading activity was tempered in anticipation of the June Federal Open Market Committee meeting and the “Brexit” referendum in the U.K., affecting U.S. and European equity market volumes. Market-wide trade volume of ETFs rose just 1 percentage point year over year. Conversely, the retail bond market was particularly active as corporate bond transactions under 250 bonds rose 31 percentage points year over year.

Mr. Coleman commented, “The subdued institutional trading activity affected KCG Institutional Equities in both algorithmic trading and sales trading. Despite only a modest rise in market volumes of ETFs, however, the franchise ETF desk performed well. KCG BondPoint set another new record for trade volumes in part on the strength of recent market share gains in municipals.”

In the first quarter of 2016, the segment generated total revenues of $76.4 million and pre-tax income of $6.3 million.

In the second quarter of 2015, the segment generated total revenues of $63.5 million and a pre-tax loss of $9.9 million, which included accelerated stock-based compensation expense of $8.2 million resulting from stockholder-approved changes related to outstanding equity awards in the second quarter of 2015.
