FXCM Inc. : FXCM Amends Stockholder Rights Plan

FXCM Inc. / FXCM Amends Stockholder Rights Plan. Processed and transmitted by
NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions. The issuer is solely responsible for the
content of this announcement.
NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --FXCM Inc. (NYSE:FXCM), today
announced that its board of directors has voted to extend and amend the terms
of the company's stockholder rights plan. The rights have been amended in
order to protect the interests of the company and its stockholders by helping
preserve the value of the company's net operating loss carryforwards and tax
credits. The amended rights plan is similar to shareholder rights plans
adopted by several other public companies with significant net operating loss
carryforwards.

In addition to protecting the company's net operating loss carryforwards and
tax credits, the amended rights plan, by maintaining the fundamental features
of the rights plan adopted in 2015, is designed to assure that all
stockholders of the company receive fair and equal treatment in the event of
any proposed takeover of the company, to guard against two-tier or partial
tender offers, open market accumulations and other tactics designed to gain
control of the company without paying all stockholders a fair price, and to
enhance the board's ability to negotiate with a prospective acquirer.

The amendment was not adopted in response to any effort to acquire control of
FXCM.

Effect of the Amendment

Each right initially entitles stockholders to buy one one-thousandth of a
share of the Series A Junior Participating Preferred Stock of the company, at
an initial exercise price of $44.12, in the event the rights become
exercisable. As amended, the rights generally become exercisable if a person
or group becomes the beneficial owner of 4.9% or more of (a) the outstanding
Class A common stock of the company or (b) the fair market value of all
capital stock of the company. Prior to this amendment, the beneficial
ownership percentage threshold to trigger the rights plan was 10% of all
voting securities, a trigger that, after this amendment, remains in place in
addition to the above mentioned 4.9% trigger.

Any person or group that owns 4.9% or more of FXCM's outstanding Class A
common stock or the fair market value of all capital stock of the company as
of January 26, 2016 will not trigger exercisability of the rights, so long as
they do not acquire any additional shares. In each case, rights held by the
person or group triggering the rights will become void and will not be
exercisable.

The rights will expire on January 26, 2019, unless the rights are earlier
redeemed or exchanged in accordance with the rights plan or the rights plan
is earlier terminated by the company's board of directors.

Additional information with respect to the rights plan, including the
amendment, will be contained in the Current Report on Form 8-K that the
company is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A copy of the
Form 8-K can be obtained at the SEC's Internet website atwww.sec.gov.
