“2012 was a year of significant milestones and growth for our company, as we became a publicly traded entity, added 51 branches to our network and saw our finance receivables increase by over 40% from the prior year-end,” said Thomas Fortin, Chief Executive Officer of Regional Management Corp. “I am proud of the entire Regional Management team’s hard work and dedication that made 2012 such a success. In terms of our fourth quarter, while our bottom line numbers were ultimately below our expectations, we were very satisfied with our growth trajectory in the quarter, especially with our RMC Retail business unit and our live check campaign. We also saw a slight increase in our net charge-offs as a percentage of average finance receivables as well as a material increase of our efficiency ratio, and we are watching those figures carefully in 2013 to ensure they are aligned with our growth strategy.”
