QC HOLDINGS, INC. FILES (8-K) Disclosing Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements and Exhibits

May 1, 2014



Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May 1, 2014, QC Holdings, Inc. issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.

The attached press release includes adjusted EBITDA, which is a financial measure that management uses and that the company believes may be useful to investors. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, adjusted to exclude the charges related to stock options and restricted stock awards, non-cash gains or losses associated with property dispositions and foreign currency transactions, and discontinued operations. The three months ended March 31, 2013 includes additional adjustments to EBITDA related to severance and related costs in connection with a first quarter 2013 restructuring plan that the company undertook due to a decline in loan volumes over the past few years as a result of shifting customer demand, the sluggish economy, regulatory changes and increasing competition in the short-term credit industry. Reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure is included in a schedule to the press release filed with this report.

This non-GAAP financial measure is intended to supplement the company's financial information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) included in the press release by providing management and investors with additional insight regarding results of operations. Management uses adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP performance measure. Management regularly reviews adjusted EBITDA as it assesses its current and prospective operating results. Management uses adjusted EBITDA in its strategic planning for the company and in evaluating the results of operations of the company. The compensation committee has used adjusted EBITDA in evaluating the performance of the company and management and in evaluating certain components of executive compensation, including performance-based annual incentive programs. Reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure is included in a schedule to the press release filed with this report. Management believes adjusted EBITDA is useful to management and may be useful to investors because certain of the adjusted items represent non-cash charges to net income, and certain of the adjusted items can fluctuate significantly from period-to-period, due in part to the timing of equity-based awards for compensation purposes.

Management recognizes that its use of adjusted EBITDA has various limitations, including the fact that the adjusted items may be a normally recurring expense or may involve the actual use of cash. Nonetheless, management believes that this adjusted EBITDA measure provides additional insight for investors into the operating results and business trends of the company.

The information in Item 2.02 of this report and in the exhibit attached to this report is not filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section or Sections 11 or 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The information contained in this Item 2.02 and in the accompanying exhibit is not incorporated by reference into any filing with the SEC made by the registrant, whether made before or after the date of this report, regardless of any general incorporation language in that filing.

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

The following exhibits are filed as part of this report:
