Based on management’s views and on the preceding factors, management expects the fourth quarter 2012 net income per share to be between $1.15 and $1.25 per share compared to $1.18 per share in the fourth quarter of 2011, which does not include costs and other charges expected to be incurred in the fourth quarter associated with the Company’s previously announced reorganization of its Mexico-based pawn operations (estimated to be between 19 cents and 32 cents per share). Based on the Company’s growth through the first nine months of 2012, which produced earnings per share of $2.62 ($3.27 per share on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, adding back the unusual items discussed above of 65 cents per share in the third quarter), and factors noted above, management expects its fiscal year 2012 earnings per share to be in a range of between $3.77 and $3.87 per share ($4.42 and $4.52 per share on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, adjusted for the third quarter unusual items but excluding the unusual items expected to be incurred in the fourth quarter, as noted above), compared to $4.25 per share in fiscal 2011.
In addition, management is initiating its expectations for fiscal year 2013. Based on its current views of the coming year, management establishes its initial anticipated range of earnings per share of between $4.75 to $5.15 for fiscal 2013.
