Encore Capital Group is a recognized leader in distressed consumer debt buying and recovery. We purchase defaulted consumer loans from major banks, credit unions, and utility providers and work directly with consumers as they repay their obligations. Headquartered in San Diego, we are a publicly traded NASDAQ Global Select company (ticker symbol: ECPG), a component stock in the Russell 2000 and the Wilshire 4500, and were listed as a top decile San Diego County public company by Bloomberg’s 2010 Company Strength Index. Our company’s operations include sites in San Diego, CA, Phoenix, AZ, St. Cloud, MN, and Arlington, TX, and a large offshore facility in New Delhi, India. We currently employ more than 2,100 people, and possess a large third-party network of collection agencies and litigators that spans the United States.
Success in our business hinges on understanding, measuring, and predicting distressed consumer behavior, and we have invested heavily to build one of the industry’s strongest analytic platforms focused on this demographic segment. We purchase consumer receivables based on account-level valuation methods, and employ a suite of proprietary statistical models across the full extent of our business. Moreover, we have one of the industry’s largest distressed consumer databases, comprising approximately 20 million accounts. Our strong performance derives from our sophisticated and widespread use of analytics, investments in data and consumer intelligence, our drive for cost leadership (based on our enterprise-wide, account-level cost database as well as our India facility), and an enduring commitment to see principled intent underscore every transaction. We enjoy strong relationships with many of the largest credit providers in the United States, and possess one of the industry’s best collection staff retention rates.
