Forex Industry: Major Acquisitions in 2012

Major Forex Acquisitions in 2012


FXCM Becomes a Major Institutional Forex Player by Purchasing the UK Based Lucid Markets (mid 2012)

FXCM purchased a 50% share of the UK company Lucid Markets. Lucid Markets is an institutional Forex company (market maker). In 2011, Lucid reported volumes of $13.4 trillion, and that makes Lucid a key player in the institutional Forex business. Furthermore, Lucid reported in 2011 EBITDA of over $110 million. So the price of $176 million for a 50% share that FXCM has paid to buy Lucid Markets seems more than fair for FXCM.
