CHICAGO, October 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Enova International (NYSE: ENVA), a leading financial technology company powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence, today announced financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2021.

“We are pleased to again report a strong quarter of growth across all of our businesses,” said David Fisher, Enova’s CEO. “We continued to see rising demand, driven by increased spending as the economy recovers. Our accelerated marketing activities were highly successful in capturing the growing demand, particularly from new customers, which as a percentage of originations were the highest since the company’s first year of operation. We expect this momentum to continue into the fourth quarter and believe that our demonstrated ability to capture market share combined with strong credit metrics provides good tailwinds as we enter 2022.”

Third Quarter 2021 Summary

  • Total revenue of $320 million in the third quarter of 2021 increased 57% from $205 million in the third
    quarter of 2020.
  • Net revenue margin of 77% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to 89% in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Net income from continuing operations of $52 million, or $1.36 per diluted share, in the third quarter
    of 2021, compared to $94 million, or $3.09 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Third quarter 2021 adjusted EBITDA of $100 million, a non-GAAP measure, compared to $136 million in
    the third quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted earnings of $57 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, both non-GAAP measures, in the third
    quarter of 2021, compared to adjusted earnings of $90 million, or $2.97 per diluted share, in the third
    quarter of 2019.

“We are encouraged by the growth in originations this quarter and our ability to deliver solid top and bottomline results,” said Steve Cunningham, CFO of Enova. “Credit performance across the portfolio remains very good, which contributed to our strong financial results this quarter. Looking forward, given the improving macroeconomic environment we expect credit to remain a tailwind and this is reflected in the fair value of our portfolio as we exited the quarter.”

Enova is monitoring and adapting quickly to changes in the current environment as the economy recovers from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the ongoing uncertainties in the operating environment the Company is not providing guidance for the fourth quarter of 2021.

CFPB Civil Investigative Demand

The Company has received a Civil Investigative Demand (“CID”) from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) concerning certain loan processing issues. Enova has been cooperating fully with the CFPB by providing data and information in response to the CID. Enova anticipates being able to expeditiously complete the investigation as several of the issues were self-disclosed and the Company has provided, and will continue to provide, restitution to customers who may have been negatively impacted.

“Enova has led the industry in providing innovative products that help consumers and small businesses and we are committed to putting customers first and complying with regulatory requirements,” said Sean Rahilly, General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer at Enova International. “We have devoted significant efforts to continually improving our technology and processes, as well as ongoing enhancements to our systems and controls to prevent negative customer experiences. Working with our regulatory authorities like the CFPB is a critical part of the process of providing financial services and we look forward to completing the investigation.”

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 transaction-related costs, lease termination and cease-use loss (gain), other nonoperating expenses and equity method investment income 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.
