Stocks in this article: PRAA

NORFOLK, Va., Sept. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the second consecutive year, Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRAA), a financial and business services company operating in the U.S. and the U.K, is one of Fortune's 100 Fastest-Growing Companies. PRA is among only six financial service sector companies making this year's list, compared with 12 last year.

"As creditors continue to sell charged-off, defaulted consumer debt to PRA, we have experienced continued success at connecting with consumers ready to pay down their debt in an improving economy," said Steve Fredrickson, PRA's chairman, president and chief executive officer.

Companies that meet Fortune's criteria "are ranked by revenue growth rate, EPS growth rate, and three-year annualized total return for the period ended June 28, 2013. The overall rank is based on the sum of the three ranks," according to Fortune. In its 2013 listing, Fortune cited PRA's three-year average revenue growth of 28%, profit (or EPS) growth of 36%, and total return of 32%.
