(NASDAQ:FXCM) ("FXCM"), a leading online provider of foreign exchange (FX) trading and related services, today announced that FXCM has closed on its sale of DailyFX to IG Group ("IG"), a global leader in online trading, for a price of $40 million.

Cash of $36 million was paid to FXCM on closing, with an additional $4 million
to be paid on completion of certain migration requirements.

FXCM's proceeds from the sale were used to repay debt owed to Leucadia. FXCM

outstanding. After the additional $4 million is received, FXCM will have
repaid more than half the debt.

"With the close of this deal we have made another positive step towards
completing our goal of eliminating the Leucadia debt through the sale of
non-core assets and cash generated through operations," said Drew Niv, CEO of
FXCM.
