FXCM Group and Leucadia Comment on GLBR Restructuring Plan and Announce Credit Agreement Extension

 

 

NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FXCM Group, LLC ("FXCM Group" or "FXCM") and Leucadia National Corporation (NYSE:LUK) ("Leucadia") today commented upon Global Brokerage, Inc.'s ("GLBR") restructuring announcement (the "Restructuring") and announced a twelve-month extension to Leucadia's loan to FXCM providing additional time to pay back the remaining balance.

Jimmy Hallac, Chairman of the Board of FXCM and Managing Director of Leucadia, stated: "We are very pleased that GLBR has pursued a path that, in relatively short order, will resolve the uncertainties relating to its future.  We believe that the Restructuring is a very positive thing for FXCM that will allow FXCM to put to rest any remaining uncertainties surrounding its ability to drive forward and continue to plan for the future following the changes in early 2017.  To that end, Leucadia extended our credit agreement to give FXCM even better flexibility to achieve that goal."

Brendan Callan, CEO of FXCM, stated: "FXCM clients should know that GLBR's refinancing does not affect FXCM Group, which continues to operate as usual.  GLBR's plan is positive news for FXCM as it allows us to put GLBR's distractions behind us.  Leucadia's incredible support and loan extension allows FXCM to appropriately balance debt repayment with our growth and innovation plans."
