Indirect sales finance originations continue to be soft, but our direct loan originations are strong.”

“The increase in core earnings is exciting and is a testament to our successful implementation and execution of Nicholas’ business strategy,” Marohn continued. “This unique and disciplined business model is being replicated in new markets as we look to continue our expansion. We have just completed several new offices expansions, and continue to initiate expansion in several others states including Texas, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and New Mexico. This will allow us to be prepared to maximize originations potential when the market starts to return to normal levels.”
