Modern Group Ltd. and CNH Capital Offer Innovative Financing Solutions

RACINE, WI--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - In an effort to make purchasing easier for its customers, Modern Group Ltd., based in Bristol, Pa., has entered into an agreement with CNH Capital America LLC ("CNH Capital"), the Racine, Wis.-based financial services business of agricultural and construction equipment maker CNH Global N.V., to offer the Modern Group Ltd. Preferred Card -- a dedicated line of credit that Modern customers can use for parts, service and rental purchases.

"Modern works hard to understand the requirements of its customers, and to provide them with the solutions they need to succeed in business," said David E. Griffith, President and CEO of Modern Group. "With the Modern Group Ltd. Preferred Card offered by CNH Capital, we look forward to offering many payment specials that will make it easy for our customers to keep their equipment in peak working condition, with options like 90 days of no payments and no interest."

The Modern Group Ltd. Preferred Card has been designed from the ground up to help Modern's customers manage their cash flow, by allowing them to easily monitor their parts, service and rental purchases with easy-to-read monthly statements. The card also works to enhance the buying power for customers, by freeing up other credit lines for other business needs.

"CNH Capital is delighted to offer custom financing solutions to one of the nation's largest equipment distributors," says Don Pralle, Senior Director, CNH Capital Partner Programs. "We look forward to providing Modern and its customers with equipment financing strategies that support their mutual growth and success."
