Mortgage Market Turnaround Seen as Investment Opportunity at Oxford Funding

The Houston-Based Company Says It's Bolstered by a Just-Released Financial Report That Views the Mortgage Meltdown as 'Fertile Ground for Opportunity'

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 11, 2008) - Oxford Funding (PINKSHEETS: OXFD), the Houston-based company banking its success on repairing damaged loans for homeowners who find themselves in the worst housing crisis since the Great Depression, says a just-released financial report published in Kiplinger's Personal Finance validates its position that the mortgage mess provides opportunity.

The September issue of Kiplinger's proclaims, "Today's market should also be viewed as fertile ground for opportunity."

Oxford Funding buys mortgage loans from banks at deep discounts and works with borrowers to get them back to paying. Oxford then re-sells the loan on the open market for a profit.

"The mortgage turmoil doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon," says Ron Redd, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Funding. "So, instead of fighting the downturn, we're seizing the opportunity to be a part of the solution."

The financial report in Kiplinger's says, "We've only seen the tip of the iceberg of housing-and mortgage-related problems." The collapse of the mortgage market has led to massive opportunities with new ways to invest.

The financial report predicts the current meltdown will continue because the lending standards used in late 2005 through early 2007 are just now resulting in a new wave of loans going into default. The report shows an alarming new trend of borrowers who can afford their mortgage but aren't paying simply because their homes are worth so much less.

"The market has been hammered by bad loans but we take pride in a hands-on approach to getting borrowers back in the market -- be that through new loan terms or some debt forgiveness -- we can help turnaround a dim outlook and turn a profit at the same time," says Redd.
