IRVINE, Calif., July 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consumer Portfolio Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:CPSS) ("CPS" or the "Company") today announced earnings of $1.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for its second quarter ended June 30, 2012. This compares to a net loss of $6.4 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011. Earnings for the first six months of 2012 were $1.9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $10.6 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011.

Revenues for the second quarter of 2012 were $44.2 million, an increase of approximately $13.0 million, or 42%, compared to $31.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $42.8 million, an increase of $5.2 million, or 14%, compared to $37.6 million for the 2011 period. Pretax income for the second quarter of 2012 was $1.3 million compared to pretax loss of $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2011.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012 total revenues were $88.7 million compared to $63.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of approximately $25.1 million, or 40%. Total expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2012 were $86.8 million, an increase of $12.6 million, or 17%, compared to $74.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Pretax income for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1.9 million, compared to pretax loss of $10.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

During the second quarter of 2012, CPS purchased $137.9 million of new contracts compared to $119.9 million during the first quarter of 2012 and $60.8 million during the second quarter of 2011. The Company's managed receivables totaled $806.1 million as of June 30, 2012, an increase from $781.8 million as of March 31, 2012 and $635.0 million as of June 30, 2011, as follows ($ in millions):

Originating Entity June 30, 2012 March 31, 2012 June 30, 2011
CPS $681.5 $621.7 $578.7
Fireside Bank 104.0 133.2 0.0
TFC 0.6 1.1 5.1
As Third Party Servicer 20.0 25.8 51.2
Total $806.1 $781.8 $635.0

Annualized net charge-offs for the second quarter of 2012 were 3.16% of the average owned portfolio as compared to 6.04% for the second quarter of 2011. Delinquencies greater than 30 days (including repossession inventory) were 3.81% of the total owned portfolio as of June 30, 2012, as compared to 5.92% as of June 30, 2011.

During June, CPS closed its second term securitization transaction of 2012 and the fifth transaction in the last 15 months. In the senior subordinate structure, a special purpose subsidiary sold four tranches of asset-back notes totaling $141.5 million. The notes are secured by automobile receivables purchased by CPS and have a weighted average effective coupon of approximately 3.15%. The transaction has initial credit enhancement consisting of a cash deposit equal to 1.00% of the original receivable pool balance. The final enhancement level requires accelerated payment of principal on the notes to reach overcollateralization of 11.00% of the then-outstanding receivable pool balance.

"The second quarter of 2012 marks another milestone in our recovery from the financial crisis," said Charles E. Bradley, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are now growing our total managed portfolio sequentially as our new contract purchases are more than offsetting the runoff of the Fireside Bank portfolio and our 2007 and 2008 vintages. As we can see from our financial results, the operating leverage inherent in our business is once again becoming evident. This bodes well for our future profitability.

"Operationally, the second quarter was also solid. New contract purchases increased 15% from the first quarter and yields and credit demographics of the new paper remain attractive. Asset performance metrics continue to be very strong as well with year-over-year net charge-offs and delinquencies continuing to decline. In addition, we achieved another record low funding cost on our June securitization."

Forward-looking statements in this news release include the Company's recorded revenue, expense and provision for credit losses, because these items are dependent on the Company's estimates of future losses. The accuracy of such estimates may be adversely affected by various factors, which include (in addition to risks relating to the economy generally) the following: possible increased delinquencies; repossessions and losses on retail installment contracts; incorrect prepayment speed and/or discount rate assumptions; possible unavailability of qualified personnel, which could adversely affect the Company's ability to service its portfolio; possible increases in the rate of consumer bankruptcy filings, which could adversely affect the Company's rights to collect payments from its portfolio; other changes in government regulations affecting consumer credit; possible declines in the market price for used vehicles, which could adversely affect the Company's realization upon repossessed vehicles; and economic conditions in geographic areas in which the Company's business is concentrated. All of such factors also may affect the Company's future financial results, as to which there can be no assurance. Any implication that the results of the most recently completed quarter are indicative of future results is disclaimed, and the reader should draw no such inference. Factors such as those identified above in relation to provision for credit losses may affect future performance.
