Limelight Holdings LLC Announces Record Full-Year Results and a Proposed Name Change from Lime Brokerage


Limelight Holdings LLC (“Lime” or “Company”), the parent company of Lime Brokerage LLC, announces record full-year results and a proposed name change from Lime Brokerage LLC to Lightspeed Financial Services Group LLC.


New York, NY – August 24, 2020 – Today, Lime announced record top-line revenue and net income results for its fiscal year ended, June 30, 2020.   


June 2020 was particularly strong, with the Company’s Lightspeed division increasing the number of new accounts opened by 344% compared to June 2019 and increasing the volume of stock shares traded by 130%. Lime’s total revenue grew by 66% on a year-to-year basis, despite being adversely affected by lower interest rates.


Farid Naib, Lime’s CEO commented “Lime’s objective is to provide professional traders with fast executions and stable technology coupled with great service. Throughout our fiscal year, particularly during the COVID crisis this objective was challenged and met, with Lime staff and systems handling record volumes of trades, users, and volatility.”


To better reflect Lime’s core business and focus, and in consideration of the greater client count using Lightspeed products and services versus other parts of the business, Lime Brokerage will be rebranding as “Lightspeed Financial Services Group LLC”, or LFSG later this year.
