RED DEER, ALBERTA / ACCESSWIRE / April 1, 2014 / Rifco Inc. (TSXV-RFC) is pleased to report that, its wholly owned subsidiary Rifco National Auto Finance ("Rifco or Company"), in the month of March, originated over $15 million dollars in new loans.
This sets a new monthly record for Rifco. The Company has previously reported monthly loan origination milestones of $1M in August 2004, $5M in March 2011 and $10M in May 2013.
The $15 million dollar milestone in March is a 50% increase over the prior milestone in 10 months.
While this monthly volume level sets a new "high water mark" for the Company, it should not be automatically extrapolated for future months or annual origination levels.
The Company intends to release its audited March 31, 2014 annual and fourth quarter results on or about June 12, 2014. As is Rifco's custom, the Company will also report the progress made against 2014's public targets and will release new targets for fiscal 2015.
