Fiscal Year 2014 First Quarter Highlights
- Total consolidated revenue was $261.6 million for the quarter, a decrease of 5.5%, or $15.1 million, compared to the prior-year period. On a constant currency basis, total consolidated revenue decreased 3.6% compared to the prior-year period.
- Total unsecured consumer lending revenue was $170.2 million for the quarter, representing a decrease of $4.8 million, or 2.7%, on a constant currency basis compared to the prior-year period, due primarily to the impact of the continued regulatory transition in the United Kingdom. Revenue from internet-based loans was $59.8 million, representing a decrease of $14.9 million, or 19.7%, on a constant currency basis compared to the prior-year period.
- Total revenue from pawn lending for the quarter was $21.9 million, an increase of $2.0 million, or 10.3%, on a constant currency basis compared to the prior-year period.
