StoneX Group Inc, formerly known as INTL FCStone, published its quarterly financial reports as of September 2020. StoneX published for the first time after fully acquiring GAIN Capital.
Alongside the excellent quarterly operating revenue and profit increase, the company recognized an $81.8 million bargain purchase on the GAIN Capital acquisition.

StoneX completed the process in July, meaning they accounted for all the transactional benefits in the last quarter’s financials.
StonesX’s quarterly books’ acquisition amount includes the $9.6 million related acquisition fees to lawyers and investment banks. Another $5.7 million are impairment charges related to capitalization software not yet placed in the service.
