KCG Holdings Revises Previously Issued Third Quarter Earnings Information To Reflect $128 Million Non-Cash Accounting Gain From GETCO's Investment In Knight KCG Holdings also announces restatements of historical financial statements for GETCO PR Newswire JERSEY CITY, N.J., Nov. 12, 2013 JERSEY CITY, N.J., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --KCG Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: KCG), the parent company formed as a result of the July 1, 2013 merger of Knight Capital Group, Inc. ("Knight") and GETCO Holding Company, LLC ("GETCO"), today announced a one-time, non-cash gain of $128.0 million in the third quarter of 2013 as a result of GETCO's investment in Knight. Prior to the merger, GETCO held the investment in Knight at fair value with gains recorded in other comprehensive income within equity. At acquisition date, GETCO reversed the cumulative gains in other comprehensive income and recognized all gains from the investment in the income statement. KCG's previously announced third quarter earnings did not reflect this accounting gain. As a result of the inclusion of this one-time, non-cash gain, KCG reported net income of $226.8 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.98 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 in its Form 10-Q dated November 12, 2013, compared to net income of $98.9 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.86 as originally reported in the third quarter earnings press release dated October 30, 2013. The gain is included in investment income and other, net within total revenues. Please refer to the exhibits contained herein for revised financial schedules. KCG also announced today that it has filed restated historical financial statements of GETCO. The restatements of GETCO's financial statements are for the years ended December 31, 2012, 2011 and 2010, the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2012, and the three months ended March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2012. The restatements are due to errors in the presentation of GETCO members' equity, earnings per unit and cash flows as well as an accounting charge for certain non-cash, merger-related compensation. Accordingly, investors should no longer rely upon previously issued financial statements of GETCO for the relevant periods. The restatement that related to the presentation of members' equity resulted from the misclassification of certain equity interests as GETCO members' equity. These interests were redeemable in certain circumstances outside the control of GETCO and have been reclassified as mezzanine equity. The correction impacted all relevant periods covered by GETCO historical results prior to the merger close and resulted in reclassifications to Redeemable preferred member's equity from members' equity of between $289.6 million and $338.0 million. This classification error did not result in any changes in reported net income or loss for any of the affected periods; however, the reclassification did result in the restatement of earnings allocated to common units for each such period and related earnings per unit disclosures. The restatement that related to the presentation of cash flows resulted from the misclassification of cash flows between operating and financing activities related to unit award compensation and members'distributions. The correction resulted in increases in cash used in operating activities of $71.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, $9.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and $12.8 million for the year ended 2011, with offsetting decreases in cash used in financing activities in each period. The restatement that related to the reporting of certain non-cash compensation in the first half of 2013 resulted from the accounting treatment of an agreement by certain owners of GETCO units to accept a less favorable merger conversion ratio for their units than the ratio to which they were contractually entitled. The intended effect of the agreement increased the merger conversion ratio of other owners, which included GETCO employees and should have been classified as compensation expense. The correction resulted in the realization of a non-cash, merger-related compensation charge of $7.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, which increased GETCO's net losses by an equivalent amount for the affected periods. As a result of these restatements, KCG's management has concluded that there were material weaknesses in GETCO's financial statement preparation processes and the related disclosure controls for each of the affected periods. With respect to the restatements, KCG is filing a Form 8-K today which contains restated consolidated financial statements for the affected periods. The KCG Form 10-Q being filed today includes KCG financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, which reflect the $128 million gain on investment.
