Cash America completes spin-off of Enova International Cash America International (CSH) announced the successful completion of the spin-off of Enova International which will begin “regular way” trading today on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “ENVA.” Cash America’s board of directors began evaluating strategic alternatives for the possible separation of Enova in the spring of 2014, and in July it announced its intent to pursue the spin-off of Enova into a separate public company. The separation creates two companies oriented to serving the capital needs of consumers through distinctively different business models; one through a traditional storefront network and the other solely through the internet.
