INTL FCStone Inc. Announces Filing of Universal Shelf Registration Statement

INTL FCStone Inc. Announces Filing of Universal Shelf Registration Statement

NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INTL FCStone Inc. (Nasdaq:INTL)
today announced that it has filed a universal Shelf Registration Statement
with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

The Shelf Registration Statement is intended to provide the Company with
flexibility to access the public capital markets in order to respond to
financing and business opportunities in the future but does not obligate the
Company to do so. Although the Shelf Registration Statement relating to these
securities has been filed with the SEC, it has not yet become effective. If
and when the Shelf Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC,
the Company may, from time to time, issue up to an aggregate of $250 million
of equity, debt or other types of securities through one or more methods of
distribution.

Although the Company does not have any current commitments or intentions to
sell securities, the terms of any future offering would be established at the
time of offering subject to market conditions. Any offering of securities
covered by the Shelf Registration Statement will be made only by means of a
written prospectus and prospectus supplement filed with the SEC at the times
of the offerings and will include the use of proceeds and other terms of the
offering.

These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to
the time the Shelf Registration Statement becomes effective. This press
release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer
to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or
jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful
prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such
state or jurisdiction.
