Reports Q1 revenue…

Reports Q1 revenue $196.6M, consensus $208.85M. The company said, "We are pleased to report very strong earnings as the credit quality of our loan portfolio continued to remain at historically strong levels in the first quarter of 2021. While we typically experience normal seasonal loan balance declines across all products in the first quarter, our Canada Direct Lending segment delivered sequential loan growth of $13.4 million, or 4.1%, and year-over-year loan growth of 24.4%. U.S. results continue to be affected by COVID-19, mainly the third government stimulus payments in March 2021. While stimulus and U.S. federal income tax refunds reduce loan demand, they also drive exceptional credit performance and payment rates. Also, we closed our acquisition of Flexiti on March 10, 2021. Flexiti grew originations 69.0% year-over-year in the first quarter and added several new merchant partnerships. The combination of CURO's and Flexiti's complementary, market-leading businesses in Canada position us well to drive revenue growth and create long-term shareholder value. We expect to see the Katapult and FinServ merger close by the end of the second quarter and we continue to be excited about the benefits of this merger, which will increase our balance sheet flexibility while maintaining a meaningful representation on Katapult's board. The total value of our stake, before taxes and based on FinServ's stock price as of April 30, 2021, is approximately $445 million, including earn-out shares."
