Westlake ALPS Announces $3.5 Million Credit Line with Star Finance


Los Angeles, CA – Westlake Advanced Lending & Portfolio Services (ALPS), a division of Westlake Financial Services, announces the formation of a $3.5 Million revolving credit line with Star Finance, Inc. in Hot Springs, Arkansas, an affiliate of Lloyd’s Auto Sales, Inc. (collectively, Lloyd’s).

“We are excited to establish a partnership with Lloyd’s as they have proven to be a strong counterparty for Westlake Financial,” stated Todd Laruffa, Assistant Vice President and division head of ALPS. “Their business philosophy and growth strategy over the past 26 years is in line with Westlake’s vision, so we believe this partnership will be advantageous for both parties,” commented Laruffa.

Westlake ALPS replaced Capital One Auto Finance as Lloyd’s exclusive institutional lender, providing them with a secured revolving credit line to facilitate receivables growth for the next 2 years. Lloyd’s is a pre-owned independent auto dealership based out of Hot Springs, AR and serves the entire state. “I was pleasantly surprised when I initially contacted Westlake. Right away, they were eager to assist me in securing a new line of credit. The entire process was easier than I ever expected, and they went above and beyond to expedite my deal and meet all of my financial needs. I now have much needed capital at an affordable rate to help my portfolio grow and expand my business. I look forward to a long and healthy relationship with Westlake,” commented Lloyd Robertson, Owner of Star Finance.
