“David has held senior management positions in several high-growth businesses,

services industry, such as Enova,” added Mr. Feehan. “Additionally, David’s

provider of global print management and promotional solutions to corporate

David will provide excellent leadership to allow Enova to capitalize on its
opportunities at an important stage in Enova’s evolution.”

Commenting on his new role with Enova, Mr. Fisher said, “I am honored and

of closing the world’s credit gap by delivering innovative and important
financial services to consumers to help them meet their everyday needs.”

In addition, Cash America announced that Timothy S. Ho will step down as
Division President of Enova effective on March 29, 2013. “Speaking for the
Board, we very much appreciate Tim’s efforts and contributions to Enova’s
business,” said Mr. Feehan. “Since joining the company over 7 years ago, Tim
has been instrumental in the growth of Enova and the development of its
strategies and technological footprint – allowing Enova to deliver consumer
finance products and services to consumers online, both domestically and
internationally. Tim has agreed to stay on board for a brief transitional
period to assist David in his assumption of the leadership of Enova.”
