DFC Global Corp. Announces Record Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Year End 2011 Results16:00 EDT Thursday, August 25, 2011 BERWYN, Pa. (Business Wire) -- DFC Global Corp. (formerly Dollar Financial Corp.) (NASDAQ:DLLR), a leading international diversified financial services company serving primarily unbanked and under-banked consumers for over 30 years, today announced its results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. Yesterday, the Company announced that it had changed its corporate name to DFC Global Corp. to more accurately reflect its international focus. The Company will continue to trade on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the ticker symbol “DLLR”. Fiscal Year 2011 Financial Highlights Consolidated total revenue grew to a record $788.4 million for the fiscal year, an increase of $155.1 million, or 24.5%, compared to the twelve months ended June 30, 2010. On a constant currency basis, total consolidated revenue increased by $131.9 million, or 20.8%. Total consumer lending revenue increased to $429.2 million for the fiscal year, representing an increase of $109.7 million, or 34.3%, compared to the prior year period. Revenue from internet-based loans grew to $86.8 million for fiscal year 2011 compared to $26.9 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2010. Total revenue from pawn lending grew to $48.0 million during the twelve months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $19.9 million for the prior year period. Pawn lending represented 7.7% of total consolidated revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Total consolidated operating margin increased by $60.9 million, or 24.7%, year-over-year on total revenue growth of 24.5%, representing continued strong flow through of incremental revenue to earnings and profitable accretion from the Company's recent acquisitions. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA was a record $230.2 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2011, representing an increase of $48.0 million, or 26.3%, compared to the prior fiscal year, while also increasing by $38.1 million, or 20.9%, on a constant currency basis during the same period. Diluted operating earnings per share was $1.59 for the fiscal year, exceeding the Company's guidance range of between $1.47 and $1.50, and represents an increase of 17.8% compared to the prior fiscal year. Discussion on Presentation of Information The U.S. Dollar weakened in relation to the Canadian Dollar during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, as compared to the prior fiscal year, with the average value of the Canadian Dollar increasing by approximately 5% relative to the U.S. Dollar. In addition, the average value of the British Pound Sterling increased by approximately 1% when measured against the U.S. Dollar during the same period. Furthermore, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year, the average value of the Canadian Dollar increased approximately 6%, and the average value of the British Pound Sterling increased by about 9%, relative to the U.S. currency. Consequently, fluctuations in currency rates had a moderate effect on a net basis on year-over-year U.S. Dollar comparisons of the Company's consolidated financial results; and as a result, the Company is providing some country comparisons on a constant currency basis. Fiscal 2011 Overview Commenting on the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, Jeff Weiss, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased to announce another year of record performance by our Company. Total consolidated revenue for the fiscal year increased by 24.5% to a record $788.4 million, while total adjusted EBITDA increased by 26.3% to a record $230.2 million. Over the past five years, total revenue and adjusted EBITDA have grown at a compound annual rate of 17.0% and 22.4%, respectively, despite the great recession. This consistently strong performance is a testament to our business diversification strategy, the growing ALICE (asset-limited, income-constrained, employed) customer demographic we serve, and also the successful investments we have made in our de novo store expansion and global acquisition strategies. In the current economic environment, in addition to stagnant and sometimes declining wages, consumers also have to contend with significantly higher prices for goods and services fueled by higher energy costs. Furthermore, many economists are forecasting that global population growth will continue to drive up prices of natural resources; including food, clothing, and oil, well into the foreseeable future. We believe this reduction in disposable income is causing people in higher income brackets to migrate into our customer demographic in increasing numbers to satisfy their short-term credit needs, expanding our addressable market. Additionally, in many parts of the world, the ALICE demographic is either being inadequately served, or if they are being served, it is through less sophisticated “mom and pop” type establishments. Our global business strategy and inherent opportunity is to seek out these underserved markets, acquire small store chains or internet-based businesses where available, and leverage the cash flow in the more developed areas of our business to fund the future growth of these newer entities. This model has worked well for us in the past, as we initially used cash generated by our U.S. and Canadian business units to fund the expansion of our United Kingdom business, and we believe it will continue to work well for us in the future.” Jeff Weiss continued, “Fiscal 2011 was another significant year for our Company, as we completed strategic acquisitions that position us for sustained long-term growth within our existing and also new markets. Last month, we announced the acquisition of Risicum, the leading provider of internet loans in Finland with headquarters in Helsinki, Finland. Risicum, which was established in 2005, provides loans predominantly in Finland through both internet and mobile phone technology, utilizing multiple brands to target specific customer demographics. Risicum also provides internet and telephony-based loans in Sweden and the acquired technology and collections platform is scalable for growth and exportable to other countries in Northern Europe. This acquisition further expands our global footprint and product portfolio to originating unsecured short-term loans in Finland and Sweden, which nicely dovetails with our market position as the leading pawn lender in Scandinavia. Scandinavia continues to be a strategic market for our products and services given its long-standing product regulations and fragmented competitive landscape. In April 2011, we completed the acquisition of Purpose U.K. Holdings Limited, the parent company of Month End Money (MEM). MEM, which was established in 2003, operates under the brand name PaydayUK and is the market leader in the region, providing loans through both internet and telephony-based technologies throughout the United Kingdom. The expansion of our internet lending platform through the acquisition of MEM, in concert with our significant financial services store footprint, further strengthens and secures our position as the leading provider of financial services to unbanked and under-banked consumers in the United Kingdom.” Mr. Weiss concluded, “As a result of the improvements we have made in our capital structure this fiscal year, continued investments in our management infrastructure and information technology platforms, and the scalability of our recent strategic acquisitions, I believe we are well positioned to take advantage of the significant growth opportunities in front of us. We have a strong blend of core businesses that generate substantial cash flow and a number of new businesses where we can invest that cash flow for near-term and long-term growth. In addition, we have an active and robust acquisition pipeline as we continue to evaluate future development and growth prospects. With an expanding and significantly underserved global market for our products and services, I believe we are very well positioned for the future.” Fiscal 2011 Fourth Quarter Business Update Total consolidated revenue in the U.K. increased by £30.6 million, or 85.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2010. Consumer lending revenue grew by £28.6 million, or 161.1%, for the quarter compared to the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year, reflecting additional revenue from the Company's internet lending businesses, as well as continued strong performance and growth of the “bricks and mortar” store-based business. Same store sales for the U.K. with respect to consumer lending, which considers stores that were open for at least fifteen months, increased by 43.0% this quarter. Revenue from internet lending in the United Kingdom, which was bolstered by the acquisition of MEM in April 2011, increased to £28.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, compared to £6.1 million for the prior year's fiscal fourth quarter. The U.K. pawn lending business contributed £5.7 million of total revenue for the quarter, representing growth of 29.3% over the prior year's quarter. The Company opened 69 de novo stores during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, ending the year with 400 company-operated stores, and plans to open an additional 75 to 100 de novo stores in the United Kingdom during the next fiscal year ending June 30, 2012. In Canada, total consolidated revenue increased by C$3.9 million, or 5.3%, over the prior year's quarter. Consumer lending revenue increased by C$3.7 million, or 9.4%, for the fiscal fourth quarter, reflecting new customer growth from television advertising campaigns in that market designed to highlight the Company's competitive pricing advantage to customers. Debit card sales in Canada increased by 10.1% for the quarter, reflecting a renewed focus on customer loyalty programs. The Company also restarted its de novo store expansion program in Canada, opening 16 stores during the fiscal fourth quarter ending June 30, 2011, and is planning to open between 20 and 25 or more Canadian de novo stores in fiscal year 2012. The Company operated 455 stores in Canada at June 30, 2011, and had another 22 franchised locations. Sefina, the Scandinavian secured pawn lending business acquired in December 2010, contributed $8.6 million of total revenue and $3.5 million of adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The pawn loan book for the 28 stores in Sweden and Finland, which is primarily composed of loans on high carat weight gold and high value jewelry, was $79.4 million at the end of the fiscal fourth quarter. The Company expects to open eight additional pawn lending stores in Sweden and Finland in fiscal 2012, which should increase customer reach into new towns and territories, and also enhance Sefina's already strong brand awareness in the Scandinavian market, which outside of Sefina is relegated to a few small pawn store chains. The Company's consolidated loan loss provision, expressed as a percentage of gross consumer lending revenue, was 18.0% for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared to 18.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The loan loss provision includes a rapidly growing proportion of internet-based loans in the United Kingdom and Canada which typically carry higher loan losses, but with significantly lower fixed operating costs than the existing store based businesses in those countries. Looking to the future, considering the recent addition of the leading internet lending platforms in the United Kingdom (MEM) and Scandinavia (Risicum), the Company expects that the consolidated loan loss provision, expressed as a percentage of lending revenue, will increase moderately on a quarterly basis as the global internet lending portfolio grows, but with overall profit margins for the internet lending business comparable to the existing store based businesses. As a percentage of loan originations or loans written, the loan loss provision for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was 3.7%. Fiscal 2011 Fourth Quarter Financial Results For the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company incurred $1.1 million of net one-time gains, principally related to a $4.3 million net unrealized, non-cash mark-to-market valuation gain on the Company's debt and cross-currency interest rate swap agreements partially offset by acquisition related expenditures. Including these net one-time gains, income before income taxes on a GAAP basis was $28.7 million for the quarter compared to income before income taxes of $4.8 million for the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year. Also reflecting the net one-time gains, the effective income tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was 37.6%, resulting in reported net income of $17.9 million compared to a net loss of $5.1 million for the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year. Diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis was $0.40 for the fiscal 2011 fourth quarter, compared to a loss per share of $0.14 for the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year. Excluding the net non-recurring gain for the quarter, the non-cash interest expense resulting from the adoption of ASC 470-20, and the non-cash amortization associated with the legacy cross-currency interest rate swap agreements, pro forma income before income taxes was $31.5 million for the quarter, an increase of 67.6% compared to $18.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Considering the recent acquisition of the MEM business, the effective income tax rate from operations for fiscal year 2011 was reduced to 35.0% resulting in pro forma net income of $20.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $10.7 million for the prior year period. Diluted operating earnings per share was $0.46 for the fiscal 2011 fourth quarter compared to $0.28 for the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal year, representing an increase of 64.3%. A table reconciling pro forma income before income taxes and diluted operating earnings per share to GAAP basis income before income taxes and GAAP basis diluted earnings per share is included on page 12 of this News Release. Company Liquidity As of June 30, 2011, the Company's debt structure consisted of a $44.8 million tranche of U.S. senior convertible notes due 2027 and a $120.0 million tranche of U.S. senior convertible notes due 2028. In addition, the Company has a $600.0 million tranche of senior unsecured notes that are not due until December 2016. Thus, there are presently no mandatory debt principal payment obligations for the Company until potentially the first put date of December 2012 for the $44.8 million tranche of U.S. senior convertible notes. As of June 30, 2011, the Company had drawn $65.9 million of its $200.0 million global revolving credit facility. On April 13, 2011, the Company closed on a public offering of 6,000,000 shares of common stock, and including an additional 672,142 common shares subsequently issued for over-allotments, yielded net proceeds of approximately $130.2 million. The Company used the proceeds from the equity offering to pay down a portion of the outstanding borrowings on its global revolving credit facility, which was initially used to fund a portion of the acquisition price of MEM. Furthermore, as of June 30, 2011, the Company had drawn £5.4 million of its £7.0 million credit facility in the United Kingdom, and had drawn SEK 274.0 million and EUR 16.6 million of its total SEK 325.0 million and EUR 17.5 million credit facilities in Scandinavia, in order to fund the working capital needs of the U.K. business and growth of the pawn pledge book in Scandinavia, respectively. Fiscal Year 2012 Outlook Looking forward to fiscal 2012, Randy Underwood, the Company's Executive Vice President and CFO stated, “We continue to be excited about the considerable growth opportunities we foresee for our Company, from both our existing businesses and our recent acquisitions. We expect to continue to acquire new businesses in fiscal 2012, invest in new stores and new technologies, and enhance the management infrastructure and technology platforms in both our core businesses and acquired businesses in order to fund future year's growth. Additionally, as currency exchange rates continue to fluctuate on a daily basis due to the evolving world economies, which naturally affects the translation of our substantial international financial results into U.S. Dollars per GAAP, as in prior years we are initially providing a relatively wide guidance range for fiscal 2012. This range should balance the significant growth opportunities we believe exist in our current businesses with the generally unpredictable fluctuations in currency exchange rates, which could be either net favorable or unfavorable over the remaining ten months of the current fiscal year. For fiscal 2012, we are projecting revenue in excess of $1.0 billion and adjusted EBITDA of between $295.0 million and $310.0 million. Operating diluted earnings per share, which excludes any one-time charges or gains that may occur, the non-cash impact of ASC-470-20, and the non-cash amortization associated with the legacy cross-currency interest rate swap agreements, is anticipated to be between $2.00 and $2.15 per diluted share for fiscal 2012; this considers an expected effective income tax rate from operations of 34.0%. The anticipated improvement in the effective income tax rate from operations for fiscal 2012 reflects a greater mix of earnings outside the U.S. at lower statutory tax rates, as a result of the recent acquisitions we have made in the United Kingdom and Scandinavia.” Investors Conference Call The Company will be holding an investor's conference call on August 25, 2011 at 5:00 pm ET to discuss its results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2011.

The Company defines pro forma net income as net income adjusted to exclude one-time and non-cash charges and credits as described below, and diluted operating earnings per share as pro forma net income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. The Company presents pro forma net income and diluted operating earnings per share as indications of its financial performance excluding one-time and other net non-cash charges and to show comparative results of its operations. Not all companies calculate pro forma net income or diluted operating earnings per share in the same fashion, and therefore these amounts as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, loss on store closings, litigation settlements, and other items described below. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as an indication of operating performance, as well as its ability to service its future debt and capital expenditure requirements. Adjusted EBITDA does not indicate whether the Company's cash flow will be sufficient to fund all of its cash needs. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities, or other measures of operating performance or liquidity determined in accordance with GAAP. Not all companies calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same fashion, and therefore these amounts as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
