EZCORP, Inc. (NASDAQ:EZPW) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial ConditionItem 2.02 — Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On January 31, 2018, EZCORP, Inc. issued a press release announcing its results of operations and financial condition for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. A copy of that press release is attached as Exhibit99.1.
In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), we provide certain other non-GAAP financial information on a constant currency basis ("constant currency"). We use constant currency results to evaluate our Latin America Pawn operations, which are denominated primarily in Mexican pesos and other Latin American currencies. As the results of Camira Administration Corp. and subsidiaries (“GPMX”) are not included in fiscal 2017, such results included on a constant currency basis reflect the actual exchange rates in effect during the current quarter without adjustment. We believe that presentation of constant currency results is meaningful and useful in understanding the activities and business metrics of our Latin America Pawn operations and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our business that, when viewed with GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We provide non-GAAP financial information for informational purposes and to enhance understanding of our GAAP consolidated financial statements. We use this non-GAAP financial information to evaluate and compare operating results across accounting periods.Readers should consider the information in addition to, but not instead of or superior to, our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial information may be determined or calculated differently by other companies, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.
The information set forth under this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing made by EZCORP under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
