Virtu Releases Statement
NEW YORK, March 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Virtu Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIRT) a leading technology-enabled market maker and liquidity provider to the global financial markets, today released the following statement:
“While we typically do not as a matter of policy comment about Virtu’s merger and acquisition activities, following yesterday’s press release by KCG Holdings, Inc. we can confirm that Virtu made a preliminary, non-binding proposal to acquire KCG.  There are no assurances that any transaction will result from this proposal and Virtu does not intend to make any additional comments regarding this matter at this time.”
About Virtu Financial, Inc.
Virtu is a leading technology-enabled market maker and liquidity provider to the global financial markets. We stand ready, at any time, to buy or sell a broad range of securities and other financial instruments, and we generate revenue by buying and selling securities and other financial instruments and earning small amounts of money on individual transactions based on the difference between what buyers are willing to pay and what sellers are willing to accept, which we refer to as “bid/ask spreads,” across a large volume of transactions. We make markets by providing quotations to buyers and sellers in more than 12,000 securities and other financial instruments on more than 235 unique exchanges, markets and liquidity pools in 36 countries around the world. We believe that our broad diversification, in combination with our proprietary technology platform and low-cost structure, enables us to facilitate risk transfer between global capital markets participants by supplying liquidity and competitive pricing while at the same time earning attractive margins and returns.
