Flow Traders is a leading global technology-enabled liquidity provider specializing in exchange traded products (ETPs). We provide liquidity in ETP markets 24 hours a day while seeking to stay market neutral at all times and without having directional opinions. While we do not have any clients, we enable investors to buy and sell ETPs efficiently by quoting bid and ask prices. We seek to earn small amounts of money on large numbers of individual transactions based on the differences between our ETP prices and the prices of the underlying or related instruments. Investors benefit from our activities due to increased liquidity, higher execution quality and lower overall trading costs. As such, we contribute to more efficient and transparent securities markets. We provide liquidity in over 4,700 ETP listings across the globe, tracking all underlying asset classes, including equities, fixed income, commodities and currencies with access to over 96 trading venues in 33 countries around the world. The Company has been named Europe's number one ETF Market Maker at the Annual Global ETF Awards for the last nine consecutive years - 2007 until 2015, and Asia-Pacific's number one ETF Market Maker for four out of the last five years - 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015.

As a result, Flow Traders' actual results may vary from these financial objectives, and those variations may be material.

Efficiencies are net, before tax and on a run-rate basis, i.e. taking into account the full-year impact of any measure to be undertaken before the end of the period mentioned. The expected operating efficiencies and cost savings were prepared on the basis of a number of assumptions, projections and estimates, many of which depend on factors that are beyond Flow Traders' control. These assumptions, projections and estimates are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and actual results may differ, perhaps materially, from those projected. Flow Traders cannot provide any assurance that these assumptions are correct and that these projections and estimates will reflect Flow Traders' actual results of operations.
