Medallion Financial Corp. (MFIN) announced today that Medallion Bank, the Company’s unconsolidated wholly-owned portfolio company, closed a sale of nearly $100 million in prime-credit consumer loans to a large super regional bank at a premium.

Donald Poulton, Chief Executive Officer of Medallion Bank stated, “Given our strong network of relationships, 2016 is shaping up to be another record year of loan production. This sale is confirmation of the value of the Bank’s portfolio activities and the resulting gains will help facilitate additional future growth.” It is the Bank’s first sale of loans originated within its consumer lending businesses, which produced 80% of the Company’s earnings in 2015. The sold portfolio consisted primarily of home improvement and recreational vehicle installment loans.

Medallion Financial Corp. is a specialty finance company that originates and services loans in various commercial industries, and its wholly-owned portfolio company, Medallion Bank, also originates and services consumer loans. The Company and its subsidiaries have lent approximately $7 billion to small businesses.
