BEDMINSTER, New Jersey, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The Board of Directors
of GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GCAP), a global provider of online
trading services, today announced that it has rejected an unsolicited written
proposal from FXCM Inc. to acquire GAIN for 0.3996 shares of FXCM Class A
common stock for each share of GAIN common stock.

The GAIN Board of Directors, with the assistance of its financial and legal
advisers, has completed a thorough evaluation of the proposal, as well as a
range of options to build shareholder value. Based on its evaluation, the
Board has determined that pursuing the transaction proposed by FXCM would
significantly undervalue the Company and its prospects and would not be in the
best interests of the Company's shareholders at this time. The Board therefore
unanimously rejected the proposal and reaffirmed its commitment to GAIN's
strategic plan.
