Credit Acceptance Corporation Announces Preliminary Results Of Its Tender Offer

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., July 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Credit Acceptance Corporation (Nasdaq:CACC) (referred to as the "Company", "we", "our", or "us") announced the preliminary results of our tender offer, which expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 19, 2010. We commenced the tender offer on June 18, 2010 to purchase up to 4,000,000 shares of our outstanding common stock at a price of $50.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest.  Georgeson, Inc. acted as information agent for the tender offer and Computershare Trust Company, N.A. acted as the depositary.

Based on a preliminary count by the depositary, the total number of shares tendered in the offer was 20,954,390, which includes 15,439,266 shares tendered by Donald A. Foss, our Chairman of the Board and beneficial owner of approximately 62.9% of our outstanding shares, and 4,000,000 shares tendered by the trustee of certain grantor retained annuity trusts created by Mr. Foss. Of the total shares tendered, 16,422 were tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedure described in our Offer to Purchase.  Tenders made pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedure will be accepted upon receipt of the related stock certificates or confirmation of book entry transfer, along with any other required documentation within three business days after the notice of guaranteed delivery was delivered to the depositary. Based on the preliminary count, we expect to purchase 4,000,000 properly tendered shares at $50.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest, for a total purchase price of $200.0 million.  Because more than the maximum 4,000,000 shares were tendered, we will purchase only a prorated portion of the shares tendered by each tendering shareholder, other than odd lot shareholders, as described in our Offer to Purchase. Based on the preliminary count, we expect the proration factor to be approximately 18.9%.
