Highlights

-- GAAP total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $222.0 million compared with $185.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, an increase of 19.6% that was largely attributable to the July 2010 acquisition of the Kyte Group ("Kyte"). On a non-GAAP basis, total revenues increased 17.9% to $217.1 million from $184.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. -- Beginning with this release GFI will report "net revenues," defined as total revenues net of certain direct incremental costs associated with those revenues, such as interest and transaction-based expenses. Included in transaction-based expenses are clearing fees, which were formerly part of the non-compensation expense category. This presentation is in line with comparable peer company practice related to clearing services. GAAP net revenues were $196.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, an increase of 9.9% from $178.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, net revenues increased 8.0% to $191.3 million from $177.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. -- Brokerage revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were up 4.9% to $176.8 million compared with $168.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. -- Compensation and employee benefits expense in the fourth quarter of 2010 was 70.9% of net revenues on a GAAP basis and 71.9% on a non-GAAP basis. This compares with 87.4% of net revenues on a GAAP basis and 70.8% of net revenues on a non-GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2009. -- Non-compensation expenses were 28.7% of net revenues on a GAAP basis and 27.3% on a non-GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2010. This compares with 26.9% of net revenues on a GAAP basis and 25.9% on a non-GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2009. -- Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $4.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $14.5 million, or a $0.12 net loss per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $3.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with non-GAAP net income of $4.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2009. -- For the full year 2010, GAAP total revenues were $862.1 million compared with $818.7 million for 2009. GAAP net revenues were $794.6 million for full year 2010 compared to $788.4 million in 2009. GAAP net income for 2010 was $25.6 million or $0.20 per diluted share compared to $16.3 million or $0.13 per diluted share for 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, total revenues for full year 2010 were $861.1 million compared with $814.4 million in 2009, while net revenue was $793.5 million for full year compared with $784.0 million for 2009. Net income was $33.6 million or $0.27 per diluted share for full year 2010 on a non-GAAP basis, compared with $39.0 million or $0.32 per diluted share for 2009 on a non-GAAP basis.

Michael Gooch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GFI, commented: "Ourbrokerage revenues for the fourth quarter grew by almost 5% and netrevenues grew by 9.9% on a GAAP basis and 8% on a non-GAAP basis over thefourth quarter of 2009. Growth in financial and commodity product revenueswas partially offset by lower revenues from cash fixed income and equityproducts.

"During the quarter, we continued to selectively hire and invest in tradingtechnologies as we position GFI to be a significant participant in the newregulatory world for financial services. Over the past several quarters, weimplemented matching technology on various fixed income and financialproduct desks globally and added significant functionality to ourEnergyMatch® platforms in the U.S. and Europe. Additionally, we added newproducts and functionality to our leading Trayport® and Fenics® productsuites. Although this investment was a drag on our bottom line in thelatter half of 2010, we believe that the solid traction of GFI'sproprietary trading technologies, matching sessions and request for quotesystems, among other areas will be reflected in future operating results.Our strategy continues to focus on deploying technology and selectivelyrecruiting brokerage staff to enhance market position and gain marketshare.

"We remain actively engaged with regulators in the U.S. and Europe on theimplementation of new regulations for over-the-counter derivative markets.We are confident that GFI will successfully register with the SEC and CFTCas a swap execution facility or 'SEF' and provide institutional marketparticipants with access to GFI's deep liquidity, market expertise andoutstanding trading technology.

"Looking at our preliminary results through mid-February, excluding Kyte,brokerage revenues are tracking down approximately 3.5% compared with prioryear results through the same period."

Mr. Gooch concluded: "We are pleased to declare a quarterly cash dividendof $0.05 per share to our shareholders."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement GFI's unaudited financial statements presented in accordancewith GAAP, the Company uses certain non-GAAP measures of financialperformance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is notintended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, orsuperior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordancewith GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used byother companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures have limitations inthat they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company'sresults of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAPfinancial measures used by GFI include non-GAAP total revenues, non-GAAPnet revenues, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share andadjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP financial measures currently excludeamortization of acquired intangibles and certain other items thatmanagement views as non-operating or non-recurring from the Company'sstatement of income as detailed in the reconciliation included in thefinancial tables attached to this release.

In addition, GFI may consider whether other significant non-operating ornon-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded incalculating the non-GAAP financial measures it uses. The non-GAAP financialmeasures also take into account income tax adjustments with respect to theexcluded items.

GFI believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken togetherwith the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningfulsupplemental information regarding the Company's performance by excludingcertain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core business,operating results or future outlook. GFI's management uses, and believesthat investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measuresin assessing the Company's operating results, as well as when planning,forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measuresalso facilitate comparisons of the Company's performance to prior periods.

In addition to the reasons stated above, which are generally applicable toeach of the items GFI excludes from its non-GAAP financial measures, theCompany believes it is appropriate to exclude amortization of acquiredintangibles because when analyzing the operating performance of an acquiredbusiness, GFI's management focuses on the total return provided by theinvestment (i.e., operating profit generated from the acquired entity ascompared to the purchase price paid) without taking into consideration anycharges for allocations made for accounting purposes. Further, because thepurchase price for an acquisition necessarily reflects the accounting valueassigned to intangible assets, when analyzing the operating performance ofan acquisition in subsequent periods, the Company's management excludes theGAAP impact of acquired intangible assets on its financial results. GFIbelieves that such an approach is useful in understanding the long-termreturn provided by an acquisition and that investors benefit from asupplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the accountingexpense associated with acquired intangible assets.

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP amounts to GAAP amounts is included in thefinancial tables attached to this release.
