Credit Acceptance Announces: Certain Operating Results For The Two Months Ended February 28, 2013 And For The Three Months Ended March 31, 2013 And Share Repurchase Activity For The Three Months Ended March 31, 2013

Forecasting collection rates precisely at loan inception is difficult.  With this in mind, we establish advance rates that are intended to allow us to achieve acceptable levels of profitability, even if collection rates are less than we currently forecast. 

The following table presents forecasted Consumer Loan collection rates, advance rates, the spread (the forecasted collection rate less the advance rate), and the percentage of the forecasted collections that had been realized as of February 28, 2013.  All amounts, unless otherwise noted, are presented as a percentage of the initial balance of the Consumer Loan (principal + interest).  The table includes both dealer loans and purchased loans.

    As of February 28, 2013  
Consumer Loan Assignment Year   Forecasted Collection %     Advance % (1)     Spread %     % of Forecast Realized (2)  
2004     73.1 %     44.0 %     29.1 %     99.6 %
2005     73.6 %     46.9 %     26.7 %     99.5 %
2006     69.9 %     46.6 %     23.3 %     99.0 %
2007     68.0 %     46.5 %     21.5 %     98.1 %
2008     70.3 %     44.6 %     25.7 %     97.1 %
