"We are proud to announce the release of our Daily BK Lead Program appropriately named 'Yesterday's BKs Today' ", said Robert Davies (OnlineBKmanager.com President). "If an individual filed or discharged a BK yesterday, our dealers can be marketing to them today. This new technology is a game changer for Auto Dealers that play in the competitive BK market", said Davies.
"Old and inaccurate leads can kill even the best thought out BK marketing campaign", added Davies. "The number one priority at OnlineBKmanager.com is to provide the freshest and cleanest BK Leads in the industry. The success of our dealers depends on it. Our exclusive multi-step cleansing process is now faster and more robust than ever before. No other BK Lead provider can compete with the speed and accuracy we provide", concluded Davies.
Early testing has shown an increase in response rates and overall higher gross profits. "My dealership is in a very competitive market," added Ron (Sales Manager with a Big 3 Franchise Dealer in Texas). "Since we started receiving Daily BK Leads, we are getting higher response from our BK mailers and we have higher gross profits as a result. The BK leads we get today are the people that filed or discharged yesterday," explained Ron. "Being the first offer they receive from a dealer in the mailbox makes all the difference."
Lending experts believe these advancements will influence the Automotive Sub-Prime Market. "We have worked closely with OnlineBKmanager.com for the past few years and our dealer partners definitely experience success with their service," said John Harton (Sr. VP with Consumer Portfolio Services - NASDAQ: CPSS).

Competition is increasing", explained Harton. "We anticipate these improvements will give CPS and our Dealer Partners a leg up on capturing more of these deals."

Bankruptcy Status Report
January 6, 2009, Phoenix, AZ – According to the American Bankruptcy Institute, personal bankruptcies increased in quantity throughout 2008. “Consumers are under great financial stress, with no immediate end in sight,” said ABI executive director Samuel Gerdano. “We expect the upward spike in personal bankruptcies to continue in 2009.”
The Administrative Office of the United States Courts confirmed the number of bankruptcies rose by 32% to 1.06 million in 2008. In 2007, 801,840 American consumers filed for bankruptcy.
“We have been monitoring the steady growth of personal BK cases,” said Robert Davies, President of www.OnlineBKmanager.com. “The good news is our dealer clients are working with lenders like Tidewater, CapOne, AmeriCredit, Wachovia and many others to offer quality sub-prime loans to these individuals.”
In today’s volatile economy, sub-prime lenders see the advantage in lending to those consumers who have a fresh bankruptcy and can not file again for many years. “We have been booking fresh BK deals since the year 2000, and historically they are by far our best-performing loans,” explained Dedra Muffley of Tidewater Motor Credit. “We are looking to do away with the non-bankruptcy paper or customers who look like they are on their way down. We want the customers that have their problems behind them.”
“Currently, chapter 7 bankruptcies represent over 75% of all cases being filed with the courts,” said Davies. “This fact contradicts previous thoughts that the 2005 law change would force more people into filing a chapter 13 over a chapter 7.”
As of January 6, 2009, there are nearly 1 million open bankruptcies being processed for discharge by the United States bankruptcy courts. “In 2009 bankruptcy marketing will continue to prove its value to automotive retailers throughout the United States,” concluded Davies.
