Company Overview

Business Description
Cash Converters International (CCV) is a franchised retail network which specializes in the sale of second-hand goods. The core business of CCV is the ownership and franchising of retail and financial services stores, which operate as retailers of second hand goods and suppliers of financial products.
Strategy Analysis
CCV´s vision is to turn second-hand goods stores into professional retail outlets. The franchise business is involved in buying and selling second-hand goods for cash. The company franchises its store operation with the national advertising and marketing programs support. The business has recently repositioned itself by significantly changing the look and feel of its stores. This is expected to make the company more appealing and contemporary. With the acquisition of Safrock, Mon-e and 17 corporate stores in four states there have been integration and control issues, which CCV will have to monitor over the next few years. Cash Converters reported a net profit of $18.43m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $134.92m. Diluted EPS was 4.6 cents compared to 3.4 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $3.2m compared to $1.38m last year. The interim dividend declared was 2 cents compared with 1.75 cents last year.
