This prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference herein or therein contain forward-looking statements about the business, financial condition and prospects of FirstCash and its wholly owned subsidiaries. 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. The forward-looking statements contained in this prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference herein or therein include or may include, without limitation, statements related to the Companys expectations for its future performance and growth, the anticipated benefits of the AFF Acquisition, the anticipated impact of the transaction on the combined companys business and future financial and operating results and the Companys goals, plans and projections with respect to its operations, financial position and business strategy.
While 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 that 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 prospectus, any prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference herein or therein. Such factors may include, without limitation, risks related to the AFF Acquisition, including the failure of the transaction to deliver the estimated value and benefits expected by the Company, the incurrence of unexpected future costs, liabilities or obligations as a result of the transaction, the effect of the transaction on the ability of the Company to retain and hire personnel and maintain relationships with retail partners, consumers and others with whom the Company and AFF do business; the ability of the Company to successfully integrate AFFs operations; the ability of the Company to successfully implement its plans, forecasts and other expectations with respect to AFFs business; risks associated with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (the CFPB) lawsuit filed against the Company, the putative shareholder securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company, the California private lawsuits filed against the Company in which the plaintiffs are seeking class certification, and subpoenas seeking information from the Company received from state regulators from time to time, including the incurrence of meaningful expenses, reputational damage, monetary damages and other penalties; risks related to the regulatory environment in which the Company operates; general economic risks, including the contributory effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental responses that have been, and may in the future be, imposed in response to the pandemic;
potential changes in consumer behavior and shopping patterns which could impact demand for the Companys pawn loan, retail, lease-to-own and retail finance products; labor shortages and increased labor costs; inflation; a deterioration in the economic conditions in the United States and Latin America which potentially could have an impact on discretionary consumer spending; currency fluctuations, primarily involving the Mexican peso and those other risks discussed and described in Part I, Item IA, Risk Factors of our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 28, 2022, and other reports filed 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 prospectus, prospectus supplement and the documents incorporated by reference herein or therein speak only as of the date of this prospectus, 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 Companys expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based, except as required by law.
The Company is the leading operator of pawn stores in the U.S. and Latin America, and following the AFF Acquisition, is a leading provider of technology-driven, retail point-of-sale (POS) payment solutions focused on serving credit-constrained consumers.
With the AFF Acquisition, the Company now operates two business lines: pawn operations and retail POS payment solutions. Its business lines are organized into three reportable segments. The U.S. pawn segment consists of all pawn operations in the U.S. and the Latin America pawn segment consists of all pawn operations in Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia and El Salvador. The retail POS payment solutions segment consists of AFF operations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
The Companys primary business line continues to be the operation of retail pawn stores, also known as pawnshops, which focus on serving cash and credit-constrained consumers. Pawn stores help customers meet small short-term cash needs by providing non-recourse pawn loans and buying merchandise directly from customers. Personal property, such as jewelry, electronics, tools, appliances, sporting goods and musical instruments, is pledged and held as collateral for the pawn loans over the typical 30-day term of the loan. Pawn stores also generate retail sales primarily from the merchandise acquired through collateral forfeitures and over-the-counter purchases from customers.
The Companys retail POS payment solutions business line consists solely of the operations of AFF, which focuses on lease-to-own (LTO) products and facilitating other retail financing payment options across a large network of traditional and e-commerce merchant partners in all 50 states in the U.S., the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. AFFs retail partners provide consumer goods and services to their customers and use AFFs LTO and retail finance solutions to facilitate payments on such transactions.
In connection with the completion of the AFF Acquisition, effective December 16, 2021, the Company completed a holding company reorganization creating a new holding company, FirstCash Holdings, Inc. In connection with the reorganization, FirstCash Holdings, Inc. succeeded FirstCash, Inc. as the public company trading on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol FCFS and each outstanding share of FirstCash, Inc. was converted into an equivalent corresponding share of common stock in FirstCash Holdings, Inc., having the same designations, rights, powers and preferences as the corresponding FirstCash, Inc. shares that were converted. FirstCash, Inc. now operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of FirstCash Holdings, Inc.
The Companys principal executive offices are located at 1600 West 7th Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76102, and its telephone number is (817) 335-1100. The Companys primary website address is www.firstcash.com. This website address is not intended to be an active link, and information on, or accessible through, our website is not incorporated by reference into this prospectus and you should not consider any information on, or that can be accessed from, our website as part of this prospectus or any accompanying prospectus supplement.
Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. Before deciding to invest in shares of our common stock, you should carefully consider the risk factors set forth under Risk Factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on February 28, 2022 (which document is incorporated by reference herein), as well as other risk factors described under the caption Risk Factors in any accompanying prospectus supplement and any documents we incorporate by reference into this prospectus, including all future filings we make with the SEC pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act before deciding to invest in our common stock. See Incorporation By Reference and Where You Can Find More Information. See also the information contained under the heading Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements above. The trading price of our common stock could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment in our common stock.

The Selling Stockholder will pay all underwriting discounts, brokerage fees and commissions and similar expenses in connection with the offer and sale of the shares by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to this prospectus.
