These are primarily all new customers for us and we hope to be able to grow these loans with our new customers, as well as increase our market share with new business.”

Separately the Company announced that not a single medallion loan is 90 days or more delinquent as of June 30, 2014. Mr. Murstein concluded, “In the history of the company there have been virtually no losses on the medallion loans that management has originated, and as of the end of the second quarter ending June 30, 2014 we did not have a single loan more than 90 days delinquent. With a loan to value on our medallion portfolio of approximately 40%, the credit quality of our medallion portfolio is excellent.”
