NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INTL FCStone Inc. (the 'Company') (Nasdaq:INTL) today announced its financial results for the fiscal year 2014 first quarter ended December 31, 2013. Certain financial metrics discussed in this press release are non-GAAP, reflecting marked-to-market differences in the Company's Commodity & Risk Management Services and Other segments. A reconciliation of those metrics to GAAP equivalents is provided in the table below, and further discussion of the use of non-GAAP metrics will be provided in the Company's Form 10-Q to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
Sean M. O'Connor, CEO of INTL FCStone Inc., stated, "For the quarter we realized net adjusted earnings of $1.2 million. Excluding the non-recurring $9.2 million gain on exchange share sales last year, the current quarter reflects slightly improved adjusted operating revenues and profitability. We saw strong revenue growth in our securities segment (up 36%) and our foreign exchange and global payments segment (up 13%), while our clearing and execution segment was up 6%. Our global payments and LME metals businesses achieved record revenues during the quarter. Towards the end of the quarter we saw an improvement in trading conditions with increased volatility and indications that the cyclical downturn in the grains market may be coming to an end."
