Conn’s, Inc. Announces Record Third Quarter Net Income

Credit Segment Results

Revenues for the three-months ended October 31, 2012 were $38.7 million, an increase of $7.1 million, or 22.6%, over the same quarter last year. The majority of the year-over-year growth was driven by increases in both the portfolio interest and fee yield and the average portfolio balance outstanding. The portfolio interest and fee income yield was 19.3% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 versus 18.0% reported in the prior-year period. Adoption of accounting guidance related to troubled debt restructuring reduced interest and fee income by $1.0 million and the reported yield by 70 basis points in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The average portfolio balance was $674.5 million, up 11.7% over the prior-period average due to the growth in net sales over the past 12 months.

Provision for bad debts was $13.2 million in the current quarter, an increase of $0.1 million from the prior period after excluding a charge of $13.1 million in the year-ago period related to the adoption of the troubled debt restructuring accounting guidance.

Additional information on the credit portfolio and its performance may be found in the table included within this press release and in the Company’s Form 10-Q to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

For the three months ended October 31, 2012, the Company reported net income of $0.35 per diluted share, which includes pre-tax charges of $0.8 million associated with the extension and expansion of the Company’s revolving credit facility and $0.6 million associated with the relocation of the Company’s corporate office to The Woodlands, Texas.

The Company’s reported net loss was $0.40 per diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2012, and includes a pretax charge of $14.1 million, net of previously provided reserves, related to the required adoption of accounting guidance related to troubled debt restructuring, a pretax charge of $4.7 million for inventory reserves related to aged product and a charge of $0.4 million related to store closures.
