("Cash Store Financial" or the "Company") announced that it has obtained an order from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) ("the Court") granting a stay extension under its current Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA") proceedings to September 30, 2014.
The Court also authorized the Company and its subsidiaries to enter into an amendment to its amended and restated debtor-in-possession ("DIP") financing agreement ("Further Amended DIP Agreement") pursuant to which an aggregate amount of up to $5 million will be available to the Company to permit it to continue operations during the CCAA proceedings in an effort to maximize enterprise value for all stakeholders.

The Court also today approved the Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Reports of the Monitor, FTI Consulting Canada Inc., dated June 6, 2014, June 13, 2014, and July 21, 2014 respectively.
