Share:

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QC Holdings, Inc. (OTC:QCCO) reported a net loss of $114,000 and revenues of $24.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Net income totaled $365,000 and revenues totaled $23.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

The 3% improvement in revenues during first quarter 2018 compared to 2017 was primarily attributable to an increase in new and returning customers, as well as to an uptick in installment loan activity.

Loan loss rates increased during first quarter 2018 compared to 2017.  This increase was primarily attributable to approximately $1.0 million in first quarter 2017 cash recoveries from the business-to-business portfolio and from branches that were closed at the end of 2016.
