QC Holdings, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Aug. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QC Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK:QCCO) reported a net loss of $1.9 million and revenues of $22.8 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net loss totaled $1.6 million and revenues were $46.2 million. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, net loss totaled $4.3 million and revenues were $29.2 million. Net loss totaled $3.1 million and revenues totaled $60.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

The three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 include severance charges of $77,000 and $313,000, respectively. The company recorded a charge of $2.7 million in second quarter 2016 due to a loan loss reserve for a business-to-business receivable and paid approximately $132,000 and $322,000 in severance and other costs during the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

The decline in revenues during 2017 compared to 2016 was primarily attributable to the third quarter 2016 store swap transaction, whereby the company acquired 33 branches operated in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Utah and sold its 98 branches operated in Alabama, Arizona, California, Mississippi and Ohio. Loan loss rates were lower in 2017 due to the $2.7 million second quarter 2016 reserve noted above, as well as 2017 recoveries in the business-to-business portfolio and better-than-expected collections in the branches that were closed.
