The financial services store network is the largest network of its kind in each of Canada and the United Kingdom, and in the United States maintains a strong presence in states with favorable regulations.

Additionally, the Company operates an on-line international lending platform whereby customers can obtain short-term loans over the internet. The Company's financial products and services, principally check cashing, money transfer, pawn lending, gold purchasing, and short-term consumer loan programs, provide immediate access to cash for living expenses or other needs.
