Cash America International, Inc. (NYSE: CSH) reported today that its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 net income attributable to the Company was $24,480,000 (79 cents per share), which included previously announced charges related to the closure of 115 locations during the quarter in its Mexico based pawn operations of $7.0 million (23 cents per share) and the after tax impact of the Company’s voluntary refund to certain Ohio customers of $8.4 million (27 cents per share) in the period. The combined amount of the Mexico charges and the refund expense amounted to $15.4 million after taxes (50 cents per share). Adding these amounts back to reported net income would result in adjusted earnings, a non-GAAP measure, for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $39,887,000 ($1.29 per share), compared to $37,827,000 ($1.18 per share) for the fourth quarter of 2011. This amount is greater than management’s publicly released earnings per share guidance of between $1.15 per share and $1.25 per share as reported in the Company’s press release dated October 25, 2012 and above analysts’ consensus estimates of $1.20 per share as reported by Thomson Reuters.
Consolidated total revenue of the Company increased 4% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $491.6 million, up from $474.0 million for the same period in 2011. Revenue from the Company’s loan products, driven by higher loan balances outstanding, contributed the largest portion of the increase for the period. Comparing the ending balance at December 31, 2012 to the same date in 2011, total combined consumer loan balances, a non-GAAP measure, which includes loans extended by the Company directly and loans offered by third parties that the Company guarantees, which are both GAAP measures, were up 27% to $439.8 million, which led to a 24% increase in revenue from consumer loan fees and was the primary driver of the increase in total revenue during the fourth quarter. Aggregate pawn service fees rose 5% in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, adding to the top line revenue growth for the period. Consumer loan fees increased 24%, to $222.9 million, in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, as the Company’s E-commerce segment recorded a 30% increase in revenue, led by a 38% increase in revenue from its domestic online lending business and a 22% increase in revenue from its foreign lending business.
