LAS VEGAS, NV, July 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consumer Portfolio Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:CPSS) ("CPS" or the "Company") today announced earnings of $8.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, for its second quarter ended June 30, 2015. This compares to net income of $7.0 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014, a 22.7% increase in diluted earnings per share.

Revenues for the second quarter of 2015 were $88.4 million, an increase of $16.8 million, or 23.4%, compared to $71.6 million for the second quarter of 2014. Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were $73.2 million, an increase of $13.9 million, or 23.4%, compared to $59.3 million for the 2014 period. Pretax income for the second quarter of 2015 was $15.2 million compared to pretax income of $12.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 23.3%.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015 total revenues were $174.4 million compared to $139.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, an increase of approximately $34.6 million, or 24.8%. Total expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were $144.4 million, an increase of $28.8 million, or 24.9%, compared to $115.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Pretax income for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $29.9 million, compared to $24.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $16.9 million, an increase of 23.4%, compared to $13.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

During the second quarter of 2015, CPS purchased $270.0 million of new contracts, an increase of 27.7%, compared to $211.4 million during the second quarter of 2014. The Company's managed receivables totaled $1.822 billion as of June 30, 2015, an increase from $1.726 billion as of March 31, 2015 and $1.374 billion as of June 30, 2014.

Annualized net charge-offs for the second quarter of 2015 were 6.59% of the average owned portfolio as compared to 4.98% for the second quarter of 2014. Delinquencies greater than 30 days (including repossession inventory) were 7.49% of the total owned portfolio as of June 30, 2015, as compared to 6.21% as of June 30, 2014.

As previously reported, during June CPS closed its second term securitization transaction of 2015 and the 17th transaction since April 2011, and the fifth consecutive transaction to earn a triple "A" rating on the senior class of notes. In the senior subordinate structure, a special purpose subsidiary sold five tranches of asset-backed notes totaling $250.0 million. The notes are secured by automobile receivables purchased by CPS and have a weighted average effective coupon of approximately 3.17%. 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 4.00% of the then-outstanding receivable pool balance.

"We are pleased with our operating results for the second quarter of 2015," said Charles E. Bradley, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We achieved our 15th consecutive quarter of increasing quarterly earnings, and increased our quarterly and our six-month diluted earnings per share by 23% compared to the same periods of 2014. In addition, we entered into a new two-year $100 million revolving credit agreement."

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.
