Cash America Announces First Quarter Earnings Per Share Increase of 11% and Declares Dividend

FORT WORTH, Texas--()--Cash America International, Inc. (NYSE: CSH) announced today that net income attributable to the Company for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 increased to $45,737,000 ($1.55 per share) compared to net income of $43,926,000 ($1.40 per share) for the same period in 2013. Consolidated fully diluted earnings per share was up 11% to $1.55 per share for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, which is at the high end of the Company’s pre-release of its updated published guidance of expected earnings per share of between $1.50 and $1.55 per share from its press release dated April 10, 2014 and in excess of its initially published expectation of between $1.15 and $1.25 per share published on January 23, 2014. Included in the results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 is $1.8 million in expenses primarily related to the early extinguishment of debt, which equates to 4 cents per share after taxes. Excluding the after-tax impact of $1.1 million for these expenses, adjusted net income attributable to the Company, a non-GAAP measure, would have increased to $46.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and adjusted diluted net income per share, a non-GAAP measure, would have been $1.59 per share, up 14% from the same period in 2013.

Consolidated total revenue increased 5% to $493.1 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 compared to $468.1 million in the same period in 2013. Consolidated net revenue increased 8% to $295.0 million during the first quarter of 2014, primarily due to lower loan losses in the Company’s online consumer loan portfolio. The higher level of net revenue contributed to a 9% increase in consolidated income from operations, which rose to $84.2 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 compared to $77.6 million for the same period in 2013.

The Company’s E-Commerce segment generated a 14% increase in total revenue to $208.5 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, primarily due to the continued growth in both its domestic and its foreign consumer loan balances, particularly in the installment loan and line of credit products. The E-Commerce segment experienced expanded marginal profitability during the first quarter of 2014 compared to the prior year, mostly due to lower levels of loan loss provision as a percent of revenue, which led to a 59% increase in income from operations for the E-Commerce segment. Operating income for the E-Commerce segment for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 was $70.3 million compared to $44.2 million for the same period ended March 31, 2013.

Domestic pawn loan balances ended the period up 8%, to $213.0 million at March 31, 2014, compared to the same period in 2013, and domestic pawn loan fees and service charges were up 6% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, compared to the same period in 2013. However, the Company’s Retail Services segment, which includes both the Company’s domestic and Mexico-based pawn lending business, reported a 3% decrease in net revenue to $152.3 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in net revenue was primarily due to lower net proceeds from the sale of commercial jewelry merchandise.

Commenting on the first quarter results, Daniel R. Feehan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cash America said, “The strategy of diversifying our consumer loan business away from single pay loans has begun to gain momentum as these portfolios are starting to stabilize and we are seeing efficiencies in our loss experience, which is generating improved marginal profitability of our E-Commerce business. Revenue from single payment loans was less than 20% of consolidated total revenue for Cash America in the first quarter. The overall scale of the multi-product consumer loan portfolio and its performance contributed significantly to Cash America’s financial results for the first quarter, which were well in excess of our initial estimates for the quarter.”

Cash America will host a conference call to discuss the first quarter results on Thursday, April 24 at 7:00 AM CDT. A live web cast of the call will be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s corporate web site http://www.cashamerica.com. To listen to the live call, please go to the web site at least fifteen minutes prior to the call to register, download, and install any necessary audio software.

Additionally, the Company announced that the Board of Directors, at its regularly scheduled quarterly meeting, declared a $0.035 (3.5 cents) per share cash dividend on common shares outstanding. The dividend will be paid at the close of business on May 21, 2014 to shareholders of record on May 7, 2014.

Outlook for the Second Quarter of 2014 and the 2014 Fiscal Year

Management believes that the opportunities for sustained growth in revenue and earnings will be largely associated with the customer demand for the credit products provided by the Company, which take the form of pawn loans and consumer loans. During the first quarter of 2014, the typical seasonal decline in loan balances occurred later in the quarter, which was consistent with the first quarter of 2013. This was due to delays in Federal Income Tax refunds to many of our customers. Typically, customers use a portion of these refunds to pay back existing loans and for the purchase of merchandise. At the outset of the second quarter the Company expects loan balances to begin to recover due to seasonal factors. The rate of this increase and the timing has a significant influence on second quarter results. Other elements expected to affect the growth in revenue in future periods include the potential impact of the regulatory governance of consumer loan products, the prevailing market price of gold and the development and expansion of the Company’s consumer loan products in its E-Commerce segment. Based on its views on the preceding factors, management expects that the second quarter 2014 earnings per share will be between 85 cents and 95 cents per share compared to 81 cents per share in the second quarter 2013. At this time, management leaves its previously reported expectations for its fiscal year 2014 earnings per share unchanged at a range of between $4.20 and $4.40. This guidance range compares to actual full year 2013 earnings per share of $4.66, which includes a tax benefit related to the disposition of assets and reorganization of the Company’s Mexico-based pawn lending business of $33.2 million ($1.09 per share), which was partially offset by unusual expense items of $14.4 million (47 cents per share) related to a litigation settlement during the third quarter of 2013, the closure of consumer lending locations, a regulatory penalty, an adjustment to the remaining expected liability for the voluntary refund to customers in Ohio and expenses for the early extinguishment of debt. Combining these amounts generates the net benefit of unusual items in 2013 of $18.8 million (62 cents per share). Adjusting for the full year effects of the net benefit in 2013 would result in adjusted net income attributable to the Company, a non-GAAP measure, of $123.7 million ($4.04 per share).

In addition to reporting consumer loans owned by the Company and consumer loans guaranteed by the Company, which are either generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) items or disclosures required by GAAP, the Company has provided combined consumer loans, which is a non-GAAP measure. In addition, the Company has reported consumer loans written and renewed, which is statistical data that is not included in the Company’s financial statements. The Company also reports allowances and liabilities for estimated losses on consumer loans individually and on a combined basis, which are GAAP measures that are included in the Company’s financial statements.

Management believes these measures provide investors with important information needed to evaluate the magnitude of potential loan losses and the opportunity for revenue performance of the consumer loan portfolio on an aggregate basis. The comparison of the aggregate amounts from period to period is more meaningful than comparing only the residual amount on the Company’s balance sheet since both revenue and the loss provision for loans are impacted by the aggregate amount of loans owned by the Company and those guaranteed by the Company as reflected in its financial statements.

CASH AMERICA INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
INCOME FROM OPERATIONS BY OPERATING SEGMENT
(dollars in thousands)

Corporate operations primarily include corporate expenses, such as legal, occupancy, executive oversight, insurance and risk management, public and government relations, internal audit, treasury, payroll, compliance and licensing, finance, accounting, tax and information systems (except for online lending systems, which are included in the e-commerce segment). Corporate income includes miscellaneous income not directly attributable to the Company’s segments. Corporate assets primarily include corporate property and equipment, nonqualified savings plan assets, marketable securities, foreign exchange forward contracts and prepaid insurance.

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company changed the presentation of financial information within its e-commerce segment to report certain administrative and depreciation and amortization expenses within that segment separately from its domestic and foreign operating components. Administrative expenses in the e-commerce segment, which were previously allocated between the domestic and foreign components based on the amount of loans written and renewed, are included under the “Admin” heading within the e-commerce segment information in the tables above. Depreciation and amortization related to the e-commerce administrative function is also included in this category. For comparison purposes, amounts for prior years have been conformed to the current presentation.

NON-GAAP DISCLOSURE
ADJUSTED EARNINGS AND ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER SHARE

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), the Company provides historical non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that presentation of non-GAAP financial information is meaningful and useful in understanding the activities and business metrics of the Company’s operations. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s business that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business.

Management provides non-GAAP financial information for informational purposes and to enhance understanding of the Company’s GAAP consolidated financial statements. Readers should consider the information in addition to, but not instead of or superior to, its financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial information may be determined or calculated differently by other companies, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Earnings Per Share

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, the Company has provided adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share (collectively, the “Adjusted Earnings Measures”), which are non-GAAP measures. Management believes that the presentation of these measures provides investors with greater transparency and facilitates comparison of operating results across a broad spectrum of companies with varying capital structures, compensation strategies, derivative instruments and amortization methods, which provides a more complete understanding of the Company’s financial performance, competitive position and prospects for the future. Management also believes that investors regularly rely on non-GAAP financial measures, such as the Adjusted Earnings Measures, to assess operating performance and that such measures may highlight trends in the Company’s business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying on financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, management believes that the adjustments shown below, especially the adjustment for the loss on the extinguishment of a portion of the Company's convertible senior notes (the "Debt Extinguishment") and the charges related to the Company's settlement of a litigation matter in 2013 (the "2013 Litigation Settlement") are useful to investors in order to allow them to compare the Company’s financial results for the current quarter with the prior year quarter, respectively.

ADJUSTED EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA

The following table shows adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure that the Company defines as earnings excluding depreciation, amortization, interest, foreign currency transaction gains or losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, equity in earnings or loss of unconsolidated subsidiary, taxes and including the net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interests. Management believes adjusted EBITDA is used by investors to analyze operating performance and evaluate the Company’s ability to incur and service debt and its capacity for making capital expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA is also useful to investors to help assess the Company’s estimated enterprise value. In addition, management believes that the adjustments shown below, especially the adjustments for the closure of 36 consumer lending-only retail services locations in Texas during the second half of 2013 (the "Texas Consumer Loan Store Closures"), the penalty paid to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("CFPB") in connection with the issuance of a consent order by the CFPB (the "Regulatory Penalty"), charges related to the 2013 Litigation Settlement, an income tax benefit related to the change of tax basis in the stock of one of its subsidiaries in connection with the Mexico Reorganization (as defined below) (the "Creazione Deduction"), the withdrawal in July 2012 of the proposed initial public offering by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Enova International, Inc. ("Enova IPO"), the reorganization of the Company's Mexico-based pawn operations during 2012 (the "Mexico Reorganization") and a voluntary program to reimburse Ohio customers in connection with legal collections proceedings initiated by the Company in Ohio (the "Ohio Reimbursement Program"), including a decrease in the Company's remaining liability related to the Ohio Reimbursement Program during 2013 after the assessment of the claims made to date and related matters (the "Ohio Adjustment"), are useful to investors in order to allow them to compare the Company’s financial results during the periods shown without the effect of each of these income and expense items. The computation of adjusted EBITDA as presented below may differ from the computation of similarly-titled measures provided by other companies (dollars in thousands):
