(Nasdaq:CPSS) ("CPS" or the "Company") today announced earnings of $5.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for its third quarter ended September 30, 2013. This compares to net income of $2.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012. Earnings for the first nine months of 2013 were $14.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, as compared to earnings of $4.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the same period in 2012. The 2012 periods do not include a tax expense.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $64.1 million, an increase of $16.1 million, or 34%, compared to $47.9 million for the third quarter of 2012. Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $53.5 million, an increase of $8.3 million, or 18%, compared to $45.2 million for the 2012 period. Pretax income for the third quarter of 2013 was $10.6 million compared to pretax income of $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2012.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 total revenues were $189.1 million compared to $136.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, an increase of approximately $52.6 million, or 39%. Total expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $163.5 million, an increase of $31.5 million, or 24%, compared to $132.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Pretax income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $25.6 million, compared to $4.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

During the third quarter of 2013, CPS purchased $206.8 million of new contracts compared to $203.8 million during the second quarter of 2013 and $143.1 million during the third quarter of 2012. The Company's managed receivables totaled $1.167 billion as of September 30, 2013, an increase from $1.067 billion as of June 30, 2013 and $844.9 million as of September 30, 2012, as follows ($ in millions):

 
Originating Entity September 30, 2013 June 30, 2013 September 30, 2012
       
CPS $1,141.1 $1,030.5 $748.8
Fireside Bank 21.7 31.1 80.3
TFC -- -- 0.4
As Third Party Servicer 4.1 5.8 15.4
Total $1,166.9 $1,067.4 $844.9
 

Annualized net charge-offs for the first nine months of 2013 were 4.21% of the average owned portfolio as compared to 3.47% for the 2012 period. Delinquencies greater than 30 days (including repossession inventory) were 6.44% of the total owned portfolio as of September 30, 2013, as compared to 4.64% as of September 30, 2012.

As previously reported, during September CPS closed its third term securitization transaction of 2013 and the 10th transaction since April 2011. In the senior subordinate structure, a special purpose subsidiary sold five tranches of asset-backed notes totaling $205.0 million. The notes are secured by automobile receivables purchased by CPS and have a weighted average effective coupon of approximately 3.08%. 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 5.00% of the then-outstanding receivable pool balance.

"We're pleased to report another strong quarter of financial results," said Charles E. Bradley, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "With continued improvements in funding costs and operating expenses, our return on managed assets is expanding. This combination of higher returns on an increasing asset base positions us well for future earnings growth."

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 incurred 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 the provision for credit losses may affect future performance.
