Call center, legal and purchased bankruptcy collections drove the topline growth. Even the performance of the fee-for-service business showed improvement after posting weak results in the past few quarters. The balance sheet also strengthened with higher cash and shareholder equity.
Long-term investments are benefiting the core portfolio, while strategic acquisitions are accelerating earnings growth. The credit facility will further enhance the company's liquidity, auguring well for Portfolio Recovery's long-term expansion plans. Our six-month target price of $120.00 per share equates to about 16.8x our earnings estimate for 2012. This target price implies an expected total return of 20% over that period.
