Marohn continued, “We also remain focused on proliferating our direct loan product to all of the states in which we operate.  We are now operational in Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio. Tennessee and Alabama.  Indiana, Missouri, South Carolina and Kentucky are slated to go live in our 3rd Quarter.  Nicholas is also continuing to grow our branch network through expansion efforts in Columbia, South Carolina; Wichita, Kansas; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.”
