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 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.
