Segments The company organizes its business units as three segments: Branch Lending, Centralized Lending, and E-Lending. The Branch Lending segment includes its retail branches that offer payday loans, installment loans, credit services, open-end credit, check cashing services, title loans, debit cards, money transfers and money orders. The company operated 409 short-term lending branches in 23 states, as of December 31, 2014.

Services The company’s primary business is offering payday loans through its network of branches in the United States and over the Internet in the United States and in Canada through its subsidiary Direct Credit. In addition, the company offers other financial services, such as installment loans, credit services, open-end credit, check cashing services, title loans, debit cards, money transfers, money orders and business invoice factoring. Payday Loans To obtain a payday loan from the company via the Internet, its customers fill out and digitally sign an online application and submit various types of information required for underwriting the loan. The online credit application gives the customer a pre-approval decision and conditional credit limit. Upon final approval, loan initiation can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Seasonality: The company’s business is seasonal due to the fluctuating demand for payday loans during the year. Historically, the company has experienced its highest demand for payday loans in January and in the fourth calendar quarter. As a result of the receipt by customers of their income tax refunds, demand for payday loans has historically declined in the balance of the first calendar quarter and the first month of the second quarter. Installment Loans The company offers branch-based installment loans to customers in its Illinois branches and in additional states. In 2012, the company introduced new installment loan products (signature loans and auto equity loans) to meet customer demand for loan options with longer terms. These new products are higher-dollar and longer-term installment loans that are centrally underwritten and distributed through its existing branch network. The installment loans are payable in monthly installments (principal plus accrued interest) with terms ranging from 4 to 48 months, and all loans are pre-payable at any time without penalty. As of December 31, 2014, the company offered its installment loan products to customers in 275 of its branches in 11 states in which the company operates. The company offers branch-based installment loans to customers in eight states across its branch netwo
