London-headquartered IG Group, the online trading specialist, has revealed that its revenue for the three months to 31 August was £227.5m ($314.3m).

Excluding the foreign exchange hedging gain associated with the financing of the Tastytrade acquisition, which was completed at the end of June, adjusted net trading revenue was £221.7m.

This is higher than both the same period in the prior year (£209m) as well as the recent fourth-quarter period (£214.1m), according to the company, whose financial year end was 31 May.  

In relation to Tastytrade, in the approximate two-month period since completion of the acquisition, it delivered revenue of £20.8m.

Slowdown in trading

Excluding Tastytrade, adjusted net trading revenue for the quarter was £200.9m, 4% lower than the first quarter for the previous year, reflecting anticipated moderation in trading activity.
