INTL FCStone Inc. (NASDAQ:INTL), a global financial services group, has reported its Q4 2015 operating metrics for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, according to an INTL FCStone statement.
During Q4 2015, INTL FCStone reported total revenues of $2.63 billion, which represent a massive decline of -75.4% YoY from $10.6 billion in Q4 2014. However, while this loss was relegated to the period of Q4, the full fiscal year revenues figure was a much different story, actually rising to $34.69 billion from $34.0 billion, or capturing a tepid growth of 2.0% YoY.
Operating revenues were also a much rosier picture in Q4 2015, which showed a figure of $178.7 million, justifying a growth of 37.0% YoY from just $130.6 million in Q4 2014. Another area where INTL FCStone outperformed was in the area of net income. In Q4 2015, the group witnessed a figure of $21.1 million, up a staunch 264% YoY from $5.8 million in Q4 2014.
Shareholders of INTL FCStone (NASDAQ:INTL) also had a reason to be happy with the group’s 2015 performance, namely in Q4 2015, which saw a basic earnings for share at $1.12, up from just $0.30 in Q4 2014, or 276% YoY.
