The preliminary figures are based on certain assumptions that the company considered reasonable as of the published date of its release. The actual financial results may differ from the preliminary figures which are shortly to be published.
The latest financial metrics also follow the company’s recently reported trading volumes for June which rebounded strongly over the month, achieving OTC FX trading figures of ¥110.2 trillion ($1.08 billion), a level that had not been seen since February 2015.
Overall Q1 financials indicate that the broker is firmly on track to record continuing upbeat financial results for the rest of 2016.
