BHPH Purchaser ALPS Reports Strong Q3 Results

LOS ANGELES, California — October 26, 2011 – Advanced Lending & Portfolio Services (ALPS) announces strong quarterly results with a total portfolio size of $11.5 Million at the end of Q3. This represents a 2000% growth year over year.

“We closed a $3.4 million dollar portfolio purchase just last month,” says Scott Moles, ALPS General Manager, “and as far as I can see, the sky’s the limit.”

Looking ahead, Mr. Moles sees strong sustained growth. “Despite the economy, certain divisions within the financial markets continue to do well. Bulk purchasing is one of those divisions and it continues to be a vibrant part of the automotive financial landscape,” he says. “Dealerships looking to sell their BHPH portfolio to increase cash flow should be able to find buyers. I am confident that ALPS will end up being their final choice.”

Ian Anderson, President of Westlake Financial Services, adds that “because of the large backing Westlake is providing the division, ALPS is able to purchase portfolios in markets that the competition won’t. Heavily regulated markets like New York or smaller markets like South Dakota – we can, and do, buy there.”

Mr. Anderson concludes by saying, “We are pleased with ALPS’ growth. Scott Moles has done a great job in ramping up production and providing dealers a valuable service.”
