Footnote 1: Daily Average Revenue Trades (DARTs) – client orders divided by the number of trading days in the period.

Footnote 2: FDIC-insured customer bank deposit sweep program balances with participating banks. These deposits are not recognized in the Company’s statement of financial position.

Rating 3: Commissionable order – a customer order that generates commissions.

Note 4: As part of our currency diversification strategy, we have decided to base our net worth on GLOBAL, a basket of 10 major currencies in which we hold our shares. The full effect of the currency diversification strategy is presented in comprehensive income and the components are presented in (1) Other income and (2) Other comprehensive income (“OCI”) on the balance sheet. The effect of GLOBAL on our comprehensive income can be estimated by multiplying total equity for the period by the change in the US dollar value of GLOBAL during the same period.

Note 5: Trade money is the total amount of money customers have spent or received, including all commissions and fees.

Note 6: In line with clients’ trading activity, the calculated VWAP benchmark includes extended trading hours.
