Commenting on the third quarter results, Christopher Loughlin, the Company's Chief Operating Officer stated: "The Company continues to perform well despite the uncertain global economic situation. The past Quarter witnessed not only the continued growth in the number of new customer accounts opened, but also an impressive increase in the average trade size and total number of bonds traded. While Quarter 3 results indicated a contraction in certain key metrics compared against Quarter 2 results, such declines were anticipated due to the typical seasonal drop in trading activity that occurs during the summer months. Overall, Quarter 3 results generally out performed management's internal forecasting and management believes that the Company is on a good track toward continued growth as the Company expands its sales force and executes its business plan."
