Integris Partners recently advised Mister Money Holdings, Inc. of Fort Collins, Colorado on a divesture of 15 stores, covering 3 states, to EZCORP, Inc. (EZPW), based in Austin, Texas.

“Integris Partners helped us to present our Company’s diverse market reach in a way that enabled us to attract the attention of EZCORP, and a number of other strategic buyers. Not only did Integris run a process that enabled us to find the right fit for the states we were divesting, but they helped structure the transaction in a way that allowed our shareholders to maximize their cash return, while meeting the needs of the buyer,” said Doug Will, CFO of Mister Money Holdings, Inc.

Mister Money continues to operate pawn and payday lending stores in several other states including Kentucky, Colorado, and Nebraska, and plans to increase its presence in these states over the next few years. The Company continues to grow through increased merchandise sales and pawn loans in spite of new payday lending legislation across the country.

“The way Integris helped us structure this transaction, we were able to meet the financial needs of our shareholders, and successfully restructure our group. Without this creative thought process, we would not have been able to meet the needs of all the parties at the table. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of this transaction and look forward to continuing to build a strong and vibrant organization,” said Tim Lanham, Group President.
