Description of Credit Acceptance Corporation

Since 1972, Credit Acceptance has provided financing programs that allow automotive dealerships to sell vehicles to consumers regardless of their credit history. Our financing programs are offered through a nationwide network of automotive dealerships who profit from selling vehicles to consumers who otherwise could not obtain financing; repeat and referral sales generated by those same customers; and sales to customers who respond to advertisements for our financing programs, but end up qualifying for traditional financing.

Without our financing programs, consumers are often unable to purchase vehicles or purchase unreliable ones. Additionally, as we report to the three national credit bureaus, an important co-benefit of our programs is that we offer consumers the opportunity to improve their lives by improving their credit score and switching to sources of more traditional funding. Credit Acceptance is listed on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange under the symbol CACC. For more information, visit
