financial condition and prospects of FirstCash, Inc. and its wholly
owned subsidiaries (together, the "Company"). Forward-looking
statements, as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995, can be identified by the use of forward-looking
terminology such as "believes," "projects," "expects," "may,"
"estimates," "should," "plans," "targets," "intends," "could," "would,"
"anticipates," "potential," "confident," "optimistic," or the negative
thereof, or other variations thereon, or comparable terminology, or by
discussions of strategy, objectives, estimates, guidance, expectations
and future plans. Forward-looking statements can also be identified by
the fact these statements do not relate strictly to historical or
current matters. Rather, forward-looking statements relate to
anticipated or expected events, activities, trends or results. Because
forward-looking statements relate to matters that have not yet occurred,
these statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties.

These forward-looking statements are made to provide the public with
management's current assessment of the Company's business. Although the
Company believes the expectations reflected in forward-looking
statements are reasonable, there can be no assurances such expectations
will prove to be accurate. Security holders are cautioned such
forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. Certain
factors may cause results to differ materially from those anticipated by
the forward-looking statements made in this release. Such factors may
include, without limitation, the risks, uncertainties and regulatory
developments discussed and described in the Company's 2017 annual report
on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the
"SEC") on February 20, 2018, including the risks described in Part 1,
Item 1A, "Risk Factors" thereof, and other reports filed subsequently by
the Company with the SEC. Many of these risks and uncertainties are
beyond the ability of the Company to control, nor can the Company
predict, in many cases, all of the risks and uncertainties that could
cause its actual results to differ materially from those indicated by
the forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained
in this release speak only as of the date of this release, and the
Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to report any
updates or revisions to any such statement to reflect any change in the
