Chesswood Announces Results for Q2 2011


Portfolio Growth and Low Delinquencies Continue to Generate Strong Results.

Fort Collins, CO, August 19, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Chesswood Group Limited (the "Company") (TSX:CHW), announced today its results for the second quarter of 2011, ended June 30, 2011.

The Company’s income before taxes and fair value adjustments on interest rate swaps and other liabilities totaled $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2010. "This year, our second quarter also includes the one-time deduction of $425,000 of acquisition costs on the closing of the purchase of Case Funding, in June," said Barry Shafran, the Company’s President and CEO.

The Company’s largest business, Pawnee Leasing Corporation, posted another quarter of growth in its portfolio, which exceeded US$120 million for the first time in its history. The performance of the portfolio continued to reflect the strong underlying credit profile of its lessees and their guarantors, with net charge-offs for the quarter returning to levels not seen since 2006.

"We’re very pleased by the truly excellent performance of Pawnee, which reflects years of hard work and our successful entrance into the B+ market, back in September 2008," added Shafran.
