EZCORP Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Results

·15 min read

EZCORP, Inc. (NASDAQ:EZPW) today announced results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2019.

All amounts in this release are from EZCORP continuing operations and in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") unless otherwise noted. Comparisons shown in this release are to the same period in the prior year unless otherwise noted.

HIGHLIGHTS FOR FIRST QUARTER OF FISCAL 2020

  • Total revenues for the quarter were up 3% to $222.4 million, reflecting record revenues in our pawn business. Merchandise sales increased 5% from the prior-year quarter, complemented by 1% growth in pawn service charge (PSC) revenue.

  • As anticipated, efforts to rebalance our inventory profile to drive long-term profitability depressed merchandise sales margin by approximately 260 basis points to 34%, slightly below our target range of 35-38%. Aged general merchandise in U.S. Pawn was reduced 23% from the prior-year quarter, resulting in a $1.3 million, or 3%, decrease in merchandise sales gross profit.

  • The Latin America segment contribution improved 20% to $8.1 million, with a 21% increase in merchandise sales and a 15% growth in total revenues. PSC increased 7% on a 74 basis point improvement in monthly yield reflecting the quality of the loan portfolio.

  • Continued focus on expense control drove a $0.2 million improvement in operations expenses despite a 2% growth in store count since the prior-year quarter. Corporate expense increased $4.3 million, including $2.0 million of costs not expected to recur in future periods.

  • Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $3.0 million, up $7.7 million compared to a $4.7 million loss in the prior-year quarter, and diluted earnings per share were $0.02 versus a loss of $0.06 in the prior-year quarter. Year-over-year comparisons were impacted by charges of $7.1 million in the current quarter and $2.9 million in the prior-year quarter for our portion of legal settlements reached by Cash Converters International Limited and a $13.3 million impairment of the Cash Converters investment in the prior-year quarter. Excluding those items and adjusting for constant currency1, adjusted1 income from continuing operations before income taxes was $13.4 million compared to $20.2 million in the prior-year quarter, and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.16 versus $0.28 in the prior-year quarter.

  • We opened four additional stores in Latin America in the current quarter; Latin America store count has increased by 21 net new stores, or 5%, over the last twelve months.

  • We completed the rollout of our new POS system to all U.S. and Mexico stores.

  • We successfully completed the initial launch of the Lana digital platform in December 2019.

  • We repurchased almost $1.0 million of Class A Common Stock by December 31, 2019 and an additional $1.7 million after quarter-end for approximately $2.7 million since program inception.

CEO COMMENTARY AND OUTLOOK

Chief Executive Officer Stuart Grimshaw commented, "Underlying results reflect the current management focus of reducing aged inventory levels at a time when our customers have excess cash in their hands. In Latin America we saw strong sales growth of 18% year-over-year, which was offset to a degree by the anticipated reduction in merchandise margin and loan balances. U.S. Pawn has also been focused on the efficient disposition of aged inventory with expected lower merchandise margins attached to this activity. Total consolidated revenues improved 3%, while we gained efficiencies in our operations expenses and effectively managed aged inventory. While our ongoing efforts to optimize inventory and upgrade systems, as well as the more recent government social welfare programs in Mexico, impact near-term results and loan balances, we remain focused on driving operating efficiencies, free cash flow and higher returns on earning assets, and reducing corporate expense.

"In December, we introduced our differentiated digital platform, Lana, to customers in select stores in Florida, and completed the rollout of our new point-of-sale system in the U.S. and Mexico. We expect both these initiatives to enhance customer acquisition and retention, optimize lending decisions and expand earnings through improved loan redemption rates, resulting pawn service charge revenues and sales margins.

"Importantly, we began repurchasing shares under the three-year, $60 million program that the Board approved in December 2019. We repurchased almost $1.0 million worth of stock by the end of the quarter, and to date we have repurchased approximately 415,000 shares for $2.7 million. Looking ahead, our free cash flow and strong balance sheet will enable us to enhance growth via new store openings, M&A opportunities that meet our strategic and financial criteria, and ongoing reinvestments, as well as return capital to shareholders through repurchasing publicly traded Class A shares under the share repurchase program."

28.3

  • Total revenues grew 3% to $222.4 million. PSC was up 1% to $84.7 million largely reflecting an improvement in pawn loan yield. Merchandise sales grew 5% and scrap sales were up 3%.

  • Net revenues were flat versus the prior-year quarter at $130.1 million. Consolidated merchandise sales gross profit declined 3% to $42.7 million, with a 5% increase in merchandise sales more than offset by higher cost of goods sold. Ongoing efforts to enhance inventory management impacted merchandise margins, down approximately 260 basis points to 34%.

  • Consolidated operations expenses improved slightly. Total store count increased 2%, consisting of a net 21 stores acquired or opened since the end of the prior-year quarter.

  • Administrative expense increased 33% to $17.5 million, including approximately $2.0 million not expected to recur and lower capitalization rates for IT personnel reflecting the nature of the specific work performed in the quarter.

  • Gross interest expense decreased $3.5 million reflecting the June 2019 repayment of $195.0 million of cash convertible debt. Gross interest income decreased $2.5 million due to collections on notes receivable since the prior-year period.

SEGMENT RESULTS

U.S. Pawn

  • PSC was essentially flat on a year-over-year basis, as a slightly lower balance of pawn loans outstanding (PLO) for the quarter was offset by a modest improvement in yield. PLO per store ended the period at $303,000, down 1% compared to the average for the fiscal first quarter of 2019.

  • Merchandise margins declined from 37.8% a year ago to 35.6%, as management focused on the effective liquidation of aged general merchandise inventory, which improved to 6.8% of total general merchandise inventory at the end of the quarter compared to 8.9% at the end of the prior-year quarter. Jewelry scrapping gross profit increased 31%, with related margins up approximately 640 basis points to 22% on higher gold prices.

  • Net revenues declined 2% to $99.5 million, while segment contribution increased 4% to $28.6 million on lower expenses. Prior-year results included a $2.9 million charge for an uncollectible receivable balance from a bankrupt refining partner with no comparable charge in the current period.

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded approximately 150 basis points to 31.6%.

Latin America Pawn

  • Net revenues increased 8% to $29.7 million ($29.1 million on a constant currency basis) reflecting growth in same-store loan balances, new and acquired stores and expansion in pawn loan yield.

  • PSC rose 7% to $20.6 million ($20.2 million on a constant currency basis). Ending PLO grew 4% to $40.3 million (1% to $39.2 million on a constant currency basis), with ending PLO per store of $83,000, down 1% from the prior-year quarter.

  • Merchandise sales increased 21%, or $5.5 million (18% or $4.6 million constant currency). Merchandise margins declined to 28% driven by ongoing efforts to generate cash and reduce aged inventory.

  • Operations expenses increased 10% to $20.0 million primarily a function of expenses from new and expanded stores and higher same-store licensing requirements and utilities.

  • Latin America Pawn added four de novo stores in the quarter. New store openings typically pressure earnings in the short term as they ramp up but drive higher profitability over time.

  • Segment contribution increased 20% to $8.1 million (16% on a constant currency basis) primarily reflecting higher net revenues. EBITDA margin expanded approximately 400 basis points to 32.5%.

Non-GAAP Financial Information (Unaudited)

In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we provide certain other non-GAAP financial information on a constant currency ("constant currency") and adjusted basis. We use constant currency results to evaluate our Latin America Pawn operations, which are denominated primarily in Mexican pesos, Guatemalan quetzals and other Latin American currencies. We believe that presentation of constant currency and adjusted results is meaningful and useful in understanding the activities and business metrics of our operations and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our business that, when viewed with GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We provide non-GAAP financial information for informational purposes and to enhance understanding of our GAAP consolidated financial statements. We use this non-GAAP financial information primarily to evaluate and compare operating results across accounting periods.

Readers should consider the information in addition to, but not instead of or superior to, our 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.

Constant currency results reported herein are calculated by translating consolidated balance sheet and consolidated statement of operations items denominated in local currency to U.S. dollars using the exchange rate from the prior-year comparable period, as opposed to the current period, in order to exclude the effects of foreign currency rate fluctuations. We used the end-of-period rate for balance sheet items and the average closing daily exchange rate on a monthly basis during the appropriate period for statement of operations items. Our statement of operations constant currency results reflect the monthly exchange rate fluctuations and so are not directly calculable from the above rates. Constant currency results, where presented, also exclude the foreign currency gain or loss. The end-of-period and approximate average exchange rates for each applicable currency as compared to U.S. dollars as of and for the three months ended December 31 were as follows:

Our historical segment results have been recast to conform to current presentation including the removal of discretionary strategic investment in digital platform costs in historically adjusted results.
