This further sale is intended to provide CPS with long-term financing for receivables purchased primarily in the month of December. The transaction also included $10.7 million of receivables originally originated by CPS in 2007 that were recently repurchased from a securitization transaction that closed in 2007.

The transaction was a private offering of securities, not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, or any state securities law.
