August 9, 2019 – Clearwater, Florida - Nicholas Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: NICK) announced net income for the three months ended June 30, 2019 of $0.6 million compared to $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  Diluted net income per share was $0.07 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $0.18 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Revenue decreased 11.3% to $16.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $18.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The Company reported operating income before income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2019 of $0.8 million compared $2.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.   The Company recorded an income tax expense of approximately $0.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $0.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018.  

 

“We are pleased to be able to report positive earnings in our first quarter,” commented Doug Marohn, President and CEO.  “Although it is only one quarter, the results indicate that the strategy and tactics deployed during fiscal 2019 are starting to pay dividends in fiscal 2020.  Our core operations were profitable independent of the Metrolina acquisition, and that acquisition definitely helped to increase our realized net earnings for the quarter.”

 

Mr. Marohn went on to say, “More importantly, our portfolio metrics continue to improve and will be the driving force behind future earnings.  We continue to book loans with higher rate, increased discount, lesser advance and shortened term.  Our return to disciplined underwriting has had a positive impact on our portfolio yield as our gross portfolio yield has increased to 28.3% compared to 25.3% in the prior year first quarter.  The return to a 120+ day charge-off policy along with adjustments to our servicing approach has resulted in improved performance, too.  Our 30+ delinquency is down approximately 100 basis points with most of that coming from a reduction in the 60+ days past due category.”

 

“We are also starting to see our Direct Loan product contributing to our top and bottom lines.  Our Direct Loan portfolio has now grown to over $8 million and performs better than our indirect portfolio in terms of delinquency and losses.  Currently we offer direct loans in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio; and we are in the process of obtaining licenses in the remaining states in which we operate.  As of July 2019, we obtained licensing in Tennessee, and we intend to initiate direct consumer lending there during the second quarter of fiscal 2020.  Several other states are in the final stages of licensing and we intend to have all states licensed and operational this calendar year” Mr. Marohn added.
