Aaron's CEO calls Q3 'challenging'

"While the third quarter was challenging, both Progressive and the Aaron's Business accomplished key objectives, which we believe significantly improve our long-term prospects for growth. At Progressive, third quarter invoice growth of 18.6% modestly decelerated from the second quarter. However, we expect increased productivity from new and existing retailers to drive accelerating invoice growth in the fourth quarter. In the Aaron's Business, the team launched new sales and marketing programs, which resulted in the strongest delivery growth the business has experienced in many years but also led to a decline in collections performance as our stores adapted to the new program. Given the positive momentum we are seeing in both businesses, we remain optimistic that we can continue to deliver long-term earnings growth," said John Robinson, CEO.

Buy
Aaron's initiated with a Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Jason Haas initiated Aaron's (AAN) with a Buy rating and a price target of $75. The analyst expects the company to produce "significant upside" to revenue and EPS from the large national retailer partnerships in its Progressive Leasing segment, adding that its rent-to-own contracts through Best Buy (BBY), Lowe's (LOW), Wayfair (W) and Overstock (OSTK) could more than double the company's sales and earnings over time.
