Portfolio Recovery Associates Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

NORFOLK, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRAA), a specialized financial services company and market leader in the consumer debt purchase and collection industry, today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Revenue increased 20% to $114.3 million as cash collections grew 33% to a record $182.2 million
  • Net income of $25.5 million, an increase of 38% over the comparable year-ago period
  • EPS totaled $1.48 in the quarter, compared with EPS of $1.08 in the third quarter of 2010
  • Portfolio acquisitions totaled $122.1 million

"Our third quarter results are indicative of our efforts to drive the top line, identify and improve operational efficiencies and maintain a strong and flexible capital structure," said Steven D. Fredrickson, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "The key drivers of our results continue to be strong cash collections from both bankruptcy and core portfolios, supported by an impressive performance at our call centers. We were able to deliver these results despite a weak and volatile economy. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on strengthening our core business, reducing costs and allocating the necessary resources to support continued growth in our fee-for-service businesses."

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2011 grew 20% from the year-earlier period to $114.3 million. Total revenues consist of cash collections reduced by amounts applied to principal on the Company's owned debt portfolios, plus fee income earned from our fee-for-service businesses. During the third quarter of 2011, the Company applied 43.5% of cash collections to reduce the carrying value of its owned debt portfolios, up from 41.8% in the third quarter of 2010. The third quarter 2011 principal amortization rate included a $741,000 net allowance charge against certain pools of finance receivables accounts.

Financial and Operating Review

Kevin P. Stevenson, chief financial and administrative officer, said: "The earnings power of our debt purchase business was evident during Q3, as our strong results from both bankrupt and core portfolios more than overcame soft performance at our fee-for-service businesses."

  • Cash collections rose 33% to a record $182.2 million in the third quarter of 2011, up from $137.4 million in the year-ago period. Call center and other collections increased 24%, external legal collections increased 35%, internal legal collections grew 36%, and purchased bankruptcy collections gained 40% when compared with the year-earlier period. The table below displays cash collections by source, by quarter for the past five quarters:
Cash Collection Source ($ in thousands) Q32011 Q22011 Q12011 Q42010 Q32010
Call Center & Other Collections $ 63,967 $ 64,566 $ 67,377 $ 53,775 $ 51,711
External Legal Collections 27,245 27,329 25,378 21,446 20,217
Internal Legal Collections 16,444 16,007 15,598 12,841 12,130

Total Cash Collections $ 182,168 $ 176,281 $ 166,717 $ 144,363 $ 137,377
  • Internal legal collections grew to $16.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 from $12.1 million in the year-ago quarter. Internal legal collections, in which the Company uses its own staff, represent an important, developing collections channel.
  • Productivity rose to a record $245 per collector hour paid for the first nine months of 2011 from $194 for all of 2010. Productivity, the Company's key measure of collector performance, is measured by cash collections per collector hour paid. Excluding the impact of trustee remittances on purchased bankrupt accounts, the comparison is $156 for the first three quarters of 2011, compared to $129 for all of 2010. Excluding trustee remittances on purchased bankrupt accounts and external legal collections, the comparison is $118 for the first nine months of 2011 and $100 for all of 2010.
  • In the third quarter of 2011, total revenues were $114.3 million, up 20% compared with the same period a year ago. This was driven by record cash receipts of $193.6 million in the third quarter, up 27% from $152.9 million a year earlier. Cash receipts are comprised of both cash collections and revenues from the Company's fee-for-service businesses.
  • The Company's net allowance charge totaled $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2011, representing 0.08% of net finance receivables at period-end and 0.41% of cash collections.
  • The Company purchased $5.68 billion of face-value debt during the third quarter of 2011 for $122.1 million. This was acquired in 95 portfolios from 12 different sellers.
  • The Company's fee-for-service businesses generated revenues of $11.4 million in the third quarter of 2011, a decline of 27% from the same period a year ago due largely to a decrease in revenues generated by PRA Location Services. Together, the fee-for-service businesses accounted for 10% of the Company's overall revenues in the third quarter of 2011, down from 16% in the third quarter of 2010.
  • Cash balances were $30.0 million as of September 30, 2011, down from $41.1 million as of December 31, 2010. During the third quarter of 2011, the Company had net borrowings of $10 million on its line of credit, leaving it with $260 million in outstanding borrowings at quarter end. Remaining borrowing availability under the line was $147.5 million as of September 30, 2011.

The Company's earnings for the first nine months of 2011 totaled $74.2 million, or $4.31 per diluted share, compared with $52.8 million, or $3.15 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2010. Year-to-date 2011 revenues were $340.8 million, compared to $272.0 million in the first nine months of 2010.
