Asta Funding, Inc. Announces Financial Results for First Quarter Fiscal 2011
-- Net Income of $2.7 Million, or $0.18 Per Diluted Share
-- Strong Balance Sheet, No Impairments, Strong Liquidity Position
Continues
-- $84 Million Cash & Cash Equivalents


ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asta Funding, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASFI) (the "Company"), a consumer receivable asset management and liquidation company, today announced results for the first quarter of the 2011 fiscal year, the three-month period ended December 31, 2010.

For the three months ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net income of $2,666,000, or $0.18 per diluted share, an increase over net income of $2,475,000, or $0.17 per diluted share for the comparable period of fiscal year 2010. Total revenue was $10,838,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, as compared to $11,053,000 for the three-month period ended December 31, 2009. Finance income from fully amortized portfolios (zero basis revenue) was $8,793,000 for the three-month period ended December 31, 2010, an increase of $685,000 from the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 of $8,108,000.

General and administrative expenses were $5,481,000 for the three-month period ended December 31, 2010, including $1.0 million non cash charge for stock based compensation expense as compared to general and administrative expenses of $5,629,000 for the same period in the prior year, which included approximately $500,000 for non cash stock based compensation expense.

Net cash collections of consumer receivables acquired for liquidation for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 totaled $21,105,000, including $155,000 from collections represented by account sales. This compares to $29,430,000 of total net cash collections, including $2,597,000 from collections represented by account sales, for the same period a year ago. Net cash collections on the Great Seneca portfolio were $3,551,000 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 as compared to $4,910,000 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. The carrying value of the Great Seneca portfolio at December 31, 2010 was $87.7 million, as compared to $116.6 million at December 31, 2009. Investments in new portfolios totaled $2,883,000 during the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, as compared to $2,300,000 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. The portfolios acquired during the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 include semi-performing litigation-related medical accounts receivable portfolios whereby the Company is assigned the revenue stream. As a portion of the accounts are performing, the cost of the portfolio is higher than the traditional charged off non-performing assets.

The Company had no senior or subordinated debt as of December 31, 2010, as compared to $4,386,000 of subordinated debt as of September 30, 2010. In addition, the balance of the non-recourse debt to the Bank of Montreal was $79,268,000 at December 31, 2010 down from $90,483,000 at September 30, 2010.

"The progress we made last year in strengthening our balance sheet, increasing our cash position and generating strong cash flow has continued into fiscal year 2011. Although there are signs of economic recovery, the current economic environment remains challenging and we continue to be selective buyers of distressed, performing or semi performing debt portfolios," commented Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of the Company. "Exclusive of the non-recourse debt, we are funding our business through our cash flow from operations without the need for borrowing. Our current cash and cash equivalents balance is approximately $84 million. We anticipate funding portfolio investments through cash flow generated from operations. However, for the right opportunities that fit our strict investment criteria for acquiring debt portfolios, or pursuing other investment opportunities, we may consider seeking additional financing."
