6. Acceleration of Exercisability Upon a Change in Control. In the event of a Change in Control (as defined below), the
Option shall become exercisable in full as long as Optionee has remained continuously employed by the Company or any Affiliate from the Grant Date through the date of such Change in Control. A Change in Control shall mean an event that
is a change in the ownership of the Company, a change in the effective control of the Company or a change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of the Company, all as defined in Code Section 409A and guidance issued

such person or group constitutes more than 50 percent of the total fair market value or total voting power of the stock of the Company. However, if any one person, or more than one person acting as a group, is considered to own more than 50 percent
of the total fair market value or total voting power of the stock of the Company, the acquisition of additional stock by the same person or persons is not considered to cause a change in the ownership of the Company or to cause a change in the
effective control of the Company.
(b) The date any one person, or more than one person acting as a group,
acquires (or has acquired, during the 12-month period ending on the date of the most recent acquisition by such person or persons) ownership of stock of the Company possessing 30 percent or more of the total voting power of the stock of the Company.
(c) The date that any one person, or more than one person acting as a group
acquires (or has acquired during the 12-month period ending on the date of the most recent acquisition by such person or persons) assets from the Company that have a total gross fair market value equal to or more than 40 percent of the total gross
fair market value of all of the assets of the Company immediately before such acquisition or acquisitions.
(d) The date a majority of the Companys board of directors is replaced during any 12-month period by directors
whose appointment or election is not endorsed by a majority of the members of the Companys board of directors before the date of the appointment or election.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither a change in ownership nor a change in effective control shall be considered to have occurred as a result of any acquisition or disposition of the Companys
stock by, or an increase in the percentage of the Companys stock owned by, Cash America International, Inc. or any entity required to be aggregated with Cash America International, Inc. under Code Sections 414(b) or 414(c). Notwithstanding the
references to Code Section 409A, the Company intends that the Option be exempt from Code Section 409A under the exemptions for stock options and stock appreciation rights in Treasury Regulations Sections 1.409A-1(b)(5)(i)(A) and
1.409A-1(b)(5)(i)(B). For clarification purposes and without limiting the foregoing, the acquisition of the Companys stock in a public offering shall not result in a Change in Control unless required by Code Section 409A.
7. Termination of Option.
(a) The unexercised portion of the Option shall automatically and without notice terminate and become null and void at the time of the earliest to occur of the following:

Committee in its sole discretion shall have the power to cancel, effective upon the date determined by the Committee in its sole discretion, all or any portion of the Option which is then exercisable upon payment to Optionee of cash in an amount
equal to the excess of (i) the aggregate Fair Market Value of the Shares subject to such portion of the Option on the effective date of the cancellation over (ii) the aggregate Exercise Price of such portion of the Option.

such exercise to the Company in writing or by electronic means specifying the number of Shares with respect to which the Option is being exercised, (ii) providing full payment of the aggregate Exercise Price for the number of Shares specified
in such notice, and (iii) making arrangements that are satisfactory to the Committee in its sole discretion for payment to the Company in accordance with Section 12 of this Agreement of the employment taxes that the Company or any

the number of issued and outstanding Shares through the declaration or payment of a stock dividend or resulting from a stock split, a recapitalization or a combination or exchange of Shares, then appropriate adjustment shall be made in the number of
Shares and the Exercise Price per Share subject to such outstanding portion of the Option, so that the same proportion of the Companys issued and outstanding Shares shall remain subject to purchase at the same aggregate Exercise Price.
(b) The Committee may change the terms of any outstanding portion of the Option with respect to the Exercise
Price or the number or Shares subject to the Option, or both, when, in its sole discretion, such adjustment becomes appropriate by reason of a corporate transaction (as defined in Treasury Regulation §1.424-1(a)(3)). Provided, however, any such
change shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Treasury Regulation §1.409A-1(b)(v) for adjustments that do not cause the stock rights to become subject to Code Section 409A.
(c) Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, the issuance by the
Company of shares of its capital stock of any class, or securities convertible into shares of capital stock of any class, either in connection with a direct sale or upon the exercise of rights or warrants to subscribe therefore, or upon conversion
of shares or obligations of the Company convertible into such shares or other securities, shall not affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to the number of or Exercise Price of Shares then subject to any outstanding
portion of the Option.
(d) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the existence of any unexercised
outstanding portion of the Option shall not affect in any manner the right or power of the Company to make, authorize or consummate (1) any or all adjustments, recapitalizations, reorganizations or other changes in the Companys capital
structure or its business; (2) any merger or consolidation of the Company; (3) any issue by the Company of debt securities or preferred stock which would rank above the Shares subject to the outstanding Option; (4) the dissolution or
liquidation of the Company; (5) any sale, transfer or assignment of all or any part of the assets or business or the Company; or (6) any other corporate act or proceeding, whether of a similar character or otherwise.
