EZCORP Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results
Austin, Texas (February 3, 2021) —
EZCORP, Inc. (NASDAQ: EZPW) today announced results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2020.
All amounts in this release are 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.
Chief Executive Officer Jason Kulas stated, “We remain focused on strengthening and growing our core pawn business as we continue to strive to be our customers’ first and best choice for their short-term cash needs and for affordable pre-owned goods. The first quarter of fiscal 2021 was characterized by continuing growth in demand for pawn loans, building on the prior quarter’s inflection point, even as store expenses remained flat on a sequential basis. Pawn loans outstanding (PLO) ended the quarter at $148 million, up 13% on a sequential basis from $131 million at the end of September 2020, primarily reflecting continued efforts to enhance our value proposition to customers and the reduction of certain government stimulus programs. In the near term, the recently implemented second stimulus package has reduced demand for pawn loans and the upcoming tax refund season will likely further temporarily curb loan demand.
“Turning to our financial performance for the quarter, pawn service charges (PSC) and merchandise sales remained depressed relative to prior-year levels as we continue to work through rebuilding PLO following 2020 stimulus payments and other ongoing headwinds from the COVID-19 pandemic. Merchandise sales gross profits held steady on more effective inventory management. We remain on track to realize meaningful cost savings as a result of strategic initiatives we implemented last quarter and continued this quarter. Looking ahead, while store-level operating costs will rebuild as transaction activity increases, ongoing cost reduction and simplification efforts across the business generate operating leverage as revenue trends higher. Furthermore, we maintain a strong balance sheet with ample liquidity to continue to fund PLO growth, de novo store openings, and strategic inorganic growth opportunities, with an ongoing emphasis on generating strong returns on capital.
"We are there for our customers, with virtually all of our stores remaining open and with continued expansion of payment options. Moreover, we remain focused on enhancing our digital pawn servicing platform to broaden customer engagement and enhance the customer experience as we drive operating efficiencies. We also continue to leverage technology and data analytics across geographies to optimize pricing, productivity, and returns, and strengthen business development initiatives. Finally, building the most passionate and tenured store-level team in the industry remains one of our top priorities, with an ongoing focus on the health, safety, development, and retention of our team members through and beyond the pandemic."

Diluted earnings per share was $0.08, compared to $0.02 in the prior-year quarter. On an adjusted basis1, diluted earnings per share was $0.13, down from $0.17 in the prior-year quarter. Income before taxes increased by $2.5 million to $5.5 million.
Total revenues decreased $44.3 million or 20%, primarily due to a $21.2 million or 25% decrease in PSC and a $18.9 million or 15% decrease in merchandise sales.
The decrease in PSC was due to a $47.7 million or 24% decrease in PLO. Pawn loan demand was significantly reduced in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2020 as a result of the impact of COVID-19 and the economic stimulus actions in the U.S. and constrained traffic in Latin America.
Although merchandise sales decreased by $18.9 million, merchandise sales gross profit improved by 1%, driven by effective inventory management and less aged inventory leading to a 600 bps improvement in merchandise sales gross profit margin to 40%. The sales margin in the prior year quarter was negatively impacted by 260 bps due to greater sales volume of aged merchandise.
On a sequential basis, total revenues increased $11.3 million or 7% to $178.1 million, largely driven by a 15% increase in PSC. The sequential increase in PSC was primarily due to a $16.5 million or 13% increase in the PLO balance to $147.9 million from the prior quarter.
