Cash America Reports Second Quarter Net Income and Declares Dividend
FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cash America International, Inc. (NYS: CSH) reported today that its net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $25,132,000 (81 cents per share), which compares to the second quarter 2012 net income of $29,820,000 (94 cents per share). Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2013 were in line with the Company's pre-announced earnings issued on July 15, 2013. The reduction in earnings for the second quarter of 2013, when compared to the second quarter of 2012, is primarily attributable to a decline in gross profit on disposition proceeds primarily associated with the commercial sales of refined gold in the Company's Domestic Retail Services Segment. The second quarter earnings fell short of the Company's published earnings guidance primarily due to reduced customer demand for the loan products provided through the Company's Domestic Retail Services Segment, higher expenses for health insurance and personnel costs and additional interest expense associated with the $300 million senior note offering which closed in early May.
Total revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $411.0 million compared to $411.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. Net revenue, which is total revenue less cost of merchandise sold and loan loss provision expense, was up 5% to $244.8 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013 compared to the prior year primarily due to growth in the Company's E-Commerce Segment. The E-Commerce Segment posted higher total revenue levels and lower loan losses as a percentage of revenue leading to a 22% increase in net revenue, which reached $106.0 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to $86.6 million in the same quarter in 2012. The E-Commerce Segment generated income from operations of $36.4 million in the second quarter of 2013, representing an increase of 21% compared to the same period in 2012.
Commenting on the results of the quarter, Daniel R. Feehan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cash America said, "The overall financial results for the second quarter reflect the trends that we have experienced over the past four quarters. Our Domestic Retail Services Segment has faced an industry-wide challenge of adjusting to the rapidly changing environment for the commercial sales of scrap gold and to historically tepid loan demand. At the same time, our E-Commerce Segment remains a bright spot for our enterprise with ongoing growth in its revenue and earnings associated with its diversification of loan products in both the U.S. and international markets. We expect the trends reflected in our second quarter results will continue through the balance of 2013."
For the first six months of fiscal year 2013, total revenue increased 1% to $879.1 million compared to $869.1 million for the same period in 2012 and net revenue for the same comparison period was up 5% reaching $516.7 million in 2013 versus $490.4 million in 2012. The Company posted net income of $69,058,000 ($2.23 per share) for the first six months of fiscal year 2013 compared to $71,287,000 ($2.24 per share) for the same period in 2012.
Cash America will host a conference call to discuss the second quarter results on Thursday, July 25, at 7:00 AM CDT. A live webcast of the call will be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company's corporate website (http://www.cashamerica.com).

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 stock outstanding. The dividend will be paid at the close of business on August 21, 2013 to shareholders of record on August 7, 2013.
Outlook for the Third Quarter of 2013 and Related Fiscal Year
Management believes that the opportunities for 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 and the disposition of unredeemed collateral by way of consumer spending on retail sales and the commercial sale of refined gold and diamonds. Other elements that could affect the growth in revenue include the regulatory governance of consumer loan products, the continued development and growth of new lending products offered by the Company's E-Commerce Segment, the development and growth of the Company's Mexico-based pawn operations, and the prevailing market price of gold. As the Company enters the third quarter of 2013, management anticipates that demand for the Company's consumer loan products in its Retail Services Segment will continue on a moderate pace similar to the pace we experienced in the second quarter of 2013, which will be partially offset by growth in the E-Commerce Segment. Demand for the Company's pawn lending products continued to prove challenging in the second quarter and management expects future growth in its pawn lending business, but is reserved about expectations for the remainder of 2013.
Based on its views and on the preceding factors, management expects the third quarter 2013 net income per share to be between 75 cents and 85 cents per share compared to 37 cents per share in the third quarter of 2012, which included unusual items mostly related to the Company's reorganization of its Mexico based pawn operations in 2012 that reduced net income and earnings per share by $20.4 million and 65 cents per share, respectively. Based on the Company's results through the first half of 2013, which produced earnings per share of $2.23, and the factors noted above for the remainder of 2013, management expects its fiscal year 2013 earnings per share to be in a range of between $4.15 and $4.35 per share, compared to $3.42 per share in fiscal 2012, which included $25.4 million (81 cents per share) related to the Mexico reorganization, $8.4 million (27 cents per share) related to the Ohio refund expense, and $2.5 million (7 cents per share) related to expenses associated with the July 2012 withdrawal of the Enova International, Inc. proposed initial public offering.
