Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP Announces Update to the Shareholder Lawsuit against EZCORP, Inc

Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP filed a shareholder class action lawsuit on August 22, 2014, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of the securities of EZCORP, Inc. On October 6, 2014, EZCORP announced that the company will discontinue its stand-alone online lending businesses in the U.S. and U.K. and undertake certain other strategic measures that will result in aggregate pre-tax charges of approximately $110 million ($105 million after-tax) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, approximately $95 million of which represent non-cash charges, including the write-off of approximately $84 million in goodwill associated with the company's investment in the online lending businesses. The complaint filed by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP alleges that the company and certain of its executive officers misrepresented or failed to disclose material information concerning EZCORP's business, operations and financial prospects, including defendants' failure to disclose that the implementation of certain strategic and growth initiatives was less successful than represented, and certain of the Company's business units and investments were not performing as well as represented.

EZCORP, Inc. Revises Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of 2014

EZCORP, Inc. announced that it is refining its strategy to focus on an integrated, customer-centric financial services model, and would discontinue its stand-alone online businesses in the U.S. and U.K. that do not link into its integrated financial services model. The company announced earnings for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 would be less than its previous guidance range. In late July, the company expected earnings of $0.40 to $0.42 per share for the fourth quarter.

EZCORP To Sell Artiste Holding And EZOnline

EZCORP, Inc. (NasdaqGS:EZPW) said that it would exit its online lending business in the United States and the United Kingdom. Mark Kuchenrither, Chief Executive Officer of EZCORP said, "In our U.S. and Mexico pawn businesses, we have focused too heavily on retail activities, rather than the core pawn lending function and the needs of our customers. In our U.S. financial services business, we have been overly focused on regulatory challenges and have not balanced this with what our customers are seeking." According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in an effort to rebalance, EZCORP plans to sell its stake in Artiste Holding Limited, and will discontinue EZOnline.
