CHICAGO, April 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Enova International (NYSE: ENVA), a leading financial technology and analytics company offering consumer and small business loans and financing, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. In addition, Enova is providing updates on steps taken to address the impact of COVID-19 on business operations, customers, and the community.
“Our flexible online lending platform enabled us to quickly adapt to rapidly changing market conditions driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning late March, we shifted our focus to supporting our existing customers and reducing our originations to address risks in the current environment,” said David Fisher, Enova’s CEO. “We believe our earnings capacity, resilient balance sheet, flexible online-only business model, proven technology and analytics, and experienced leadership team position us well to manage through the downturn and resume growth once the economy begins to stabilize.”
Supporting our customers. Enova recognizes that many of our customers have been impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. To support our hardworking customers as they deal with the rapidly changing environment, we are waiving late fees and offering a variety of repayment options to increase flexibility and reduce or defer payments for impacted customers. We remain committed to helping our customers build positive credit history and, to that end, will follow the CARES Act guidance on credit reporting.
Supporting our team. Enova’s nearly 1,300 team members across all corporate and contact center functions have been working remotely since mid-March and are being supported with extra pay to cover any incidental expenses associated with the temporary remote work program. Our nimble technology has allowed for full work-from-home capabilities, full access to all company platforms and continued high levels of productivity. In addition, customer service levels remain high across all contact points (phone, email and chat).
Supporting our community. Earlier this month, Enova announced it will provide $500,000 to support COVID- 19 related relief activities in Chicago, where a majority of its employees live and work. The funds will help support the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund and the Chicago Small Business Resiliency Fund. In addition to these contributions, Enova is expanding its You Decide, Enova Gives program that allows team members to nominate and vote on additional charitable organizations to each receive $10,000.
Supporting our investors. Enova’s portfolio diversification, disciplined focus on unit economics for investment decisions, record of delivering solid and predictable earnings, and balance sheet resiliency will provide the financial flexibility to navigate the current economic environment while preserving key capabilities to deliver on our mission of helping hardworking people get access to fast, trustworthy credit.

“Ahead of the rapid deterioration in the economic environment during late March, we were on track to deliver another solid quarter as reflected by strong year-over-year growth in receivables and revenue. Excluding assumptions we made in our fair value measurements to address the uncertain credit environment as the quarter closed, we would have once again delivered financial results consistent with our guidance ranges,” said Steve Cunningham, CFO of Enova. “Our financial position will be a strength as we navigate economic uncertainties in the coming months. Our balance sheet resiliency is supported by a solid tangible capital position, significant committed financing capacity with strong counterparties, and low refinancing risk from thoughtful laddering of debt maturities. We ended the quarter with sizable cash balances, which had grown to $292 million on April 24. We expect cash and available liquidity to continue to grow as the business generates significant positive cash flow, especially as we slow new originations in the near term.”
Enova is monitoring and adapting quickly to changes in the current environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the ongoing economic uncertainty resulting from the speed of the economic slowdown and joblessness that began in March and the timing of re-opening the economy as social distancing restrictions are lifted, the Company is not providing guidance for the second quarter of 2020 and is withdrawing its full year 2020 guidance that was issued on January 29, 2020.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 about the business, financial condition and prospects of Enova. These forward-looking statements give current expectations or forecasts of future events and reflect the views and assumptions of Enova’s senior management with respect to the business, financial condition and prospects of Enova as of the date of this release and are not guarantees of future performance. The actual results of Enova could differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements because of various risks and uncertainties applicable to Enova’s business, including, without limitation, those risks and uncertainties indicated in Enova’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including our annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Forms 10-Q and current reports on Forms 8-K. These risks and uncertainties are beyond the ability of Enova to control, and, in many cases, Enova cannot predict all of the risks and uncertainties that could cause its actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. When used in this release, the words “believes,” “estimates,” “plans,” “expects,” “anticipates” and similar expressions or variations as they relate to Enova or its management are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Enova cautions you not to put undue reliance on these statements. Enova disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date of this release.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Enova provides historical non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that presentation of non-GAAP financial information is meaningful and useful in understanding the activities and business metrics of Enova’s operations. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of Enova’s business that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business.
Management provides non-GAAP financial information for informational purposes and to enhance understanding of Enova’s GAAP consolidated financial statements. Readers should consider the information in addition to, but not instead of or superior to, Enova’s 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.
Combined Loans and Finance Receivables
The combined loans and finance receivables measures are non-GAAP measures that include loans and finance receivables that Enova owns or has purchased and loans that Enova guarantees. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors with important information needed to evaluate the magnitude of potential receivable losses and the opportunity for revenue performance of the loans and finance receivable portfolio on an aggregate basis. Management also believes that the comparison of the aggregate amounts from period to period is more meaningful than comparing only the amounts reflected on Enova’s consolidated balance sheet since revenue is impacted by the aggregate amount of receivables owned by Enova and those guaranteed by Enova as reflected in its consolidated financial statements.
Adjusted Earnings Measures
In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, Enova has provided adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share, or, collectively, the Adjusted Earnings Measures, which are non-GAAP measures. Management believes that the presentation of these measures provides investors with greater transparency and facilitates comparison of operating results across a broad spectrum of companies with varying capital structures, compensation strategies, derivative instruments and amortization methods, which provides a more complete understanding of Enova’s financial performance, competitive position and prospects for the future. Management also believes that investors regularly rely on non-GAAP financial measures, such as the Adjusted Earnings Measures, to assess operating performance and that such measures may highlight trends in Enova’s business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying on financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, management believes that the adjustments shown below are useful to investors in order to allow them to compare Enova’s financial results during the periods shown without the effect of each of these expense items.
Adjusted EBITDA Measures
In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, Enova has provided Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, or, collectively, the Adjusted EBITDA measures, which are non-GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that Enova defines as earnings excluding depreciation, amortization, interest, foreign currency transaction gains or losses, taxes and stock-based compensation. In addition, management believes that the adjustments for lease termination and cease-use costs and losses on early extinguishment of debt shown below are useful to investors in order to allow them to compare our financial results during the periods shown without the effect of the expense items. Adjusted EBITDA margin is a non- GAAP measure that Enova defines as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA Measures are used by investors to analyze operating performance and evaluate Enova’s ability to incur and service debt and Enova’s capacity for making capital expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA Measures are also useful to investors to help assess Enova’s estimated enterprise value.
