Aug 25 (Reuters) - DFC Global Corp , that was previously known as Dollar Financial Corp, posted better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings and forecast a strong fiscal 2012 on its current businesses and planned expansions.

The payday lender and pawnbroker sees 2012 operating income at $2-$2.15 per share on revenue of more than $1 billion.

In April-June, the company earned $17.9 million, or 40 cents per share, compared with a loss of $5.1 million, or 14 cents per share, a year ago.

Operating earnings was 46 cents per share.

Revenue rose almost 43 percent to $233.9 million, boosted by a jump in fees from consumer lending.
