Resurs Bank has signed an agreement for an expanded partnership with credit management company Axactor in Norway

Resurs Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Resurs Holding, has signed an agreement for an expanded partnership with credit management company Axactor in Norway. The agreement comprises the sale of Resurs Bank’s delinquent receivables and credit card receivables in Norway. The first transfer is expected to take place in March 2020. The transfers are expected to have a marginally positive impact on Resurs Bank’s capital requirements, liquidity and earnings.

Resurs Bank’s loan receivables that are more than 90 days past due will be sold to Axactor under forward flow agreements, and credit card receivables will be subject to a solution rate grantee preceded by 90-day third-party debt collection. The total quantity of outstanding debt under the agreement is NOK 390 million and the term of the agreements is 12 months. Selling the receivables will accelerate the conversion of receivables into cash flow and reduce Resurs Bank’s risk exposure.
