CarFinance Capital Renews and Increases Credit Facility to $300 Million

Company continues to expand reach to below-prime consumers through dealer partners and CarFinance.com

Irvine, CA, April 1, 2013– CarFinance Capital LLC announced that it has renewed and increased its warehouse credit facility from $200 to $300 million. The increased credit line, which is provided by Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse, further bolsters the Company’s ongoing mission of helping the growing population of credit-challenged car buyers, who account for over 43% of all car loans.*

“There is now a growing population in the U.S. of below-prime consumers who have been negatively impacted by the recession but who, as the economy improves, are getting back on their feet and looking to purchase a vehicle. We are dedicated to serving this consumer,” said CarFinance Capital President and CEO Jim Landy. “Securing this $300 million warehouse facility enables us to further expand the reach of our services, through both our over 2,000 dealer partners and CarFinance.com, our direct lending website.”

Since its launch in 2011, CarFinance Capital has helped thousands of consumers nationwide secure financing through its partnerships with franchised auto dealers and through CarFinance.com.  CarFinance.com offers a time- and money-saving way for consumers to obtain pre-approved new or used car loans, as well as the opportunity to potentially lower their existing car loan payments through refinancing.

CarFinance is licensed in over 44 states, serving over 80% of the country’s car purchasing population, for both its direct and indirect auto loan financing channels.
