Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
 Yes No
If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
During the three months ended June 30, 2020, Freedom Holding Corp. (the “Company”) expects to realize net income of approximately $24.3 million and basic and diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.42, compared to net income of $8.2 million and basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.14 during the three months ended June 30, 2019. As a result of the strengthening of the Company’s functional currencies against its reporting currency and the resulting foreign currency translation adjustment, net of tax, the Company expects to realize foreign currency translation adjustments of approximately $8.6 million, resulting in comprehensive income of approximately $33.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2020. During the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company realized comprehensive income of approximately $8.9 million.
The increase in net income and comprehensive income were principally due to growth in fee and commission income and net gain on trading securities realized during the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company expects to realize approximately $43.3 million in fee and commission income and approximately $9.1 million in net gain on trading securities, compared to $22.6 million and $2.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2019, respectively. The Company anticipates these increases will be partially offset by an increase in fee and commission expense of approximately $5.7 million.
The Company believes these increases primarily resulted from the unique market characteristics surrounding the initial outbreak and reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the significant decline and subsequent rebound in the equity and debt capital markets, which created, at least among the Company’s customers, significantly increased trading volumes and customer activity during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. The Company also believes at least a portion of this growth was the result of its ongoing efforts to expand its customer base and as a result of increased activity among its existing customers. The Company also expects to realize approximately a $3.3 million increase in fees and commissions from underwriting services during the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period 2019.
