Funding America, Inc. (NASDAQ:LMFA) ("LM Funding" "LMFA" or "Company"), a technology-based specialty finance company, today announced contracting with two additional South Florida condominium owners associations to provide funding for potential budget shortfalls resulting from the pandemic driven economic downturn. These new contracts add 8,000 doors to the Company's total door count for Associations under contract with active accounts to approximately 33,000.
"We continue to expect overall delinquency rates in community associations and the demand for our funding products to track unemployment", said LMFA's Chief Executive Officer Bruce M. Rodgers. "The pandemic caused economic downturn has resulted in May 2020 U.S. unemployment of 13.3%. We experienced our most profitable years following the 2008 financial downturn when unemployment increased in 2009 to 2013 from a low of 7.8% to a high of 9.8%. We entered that business cycle as a start up company with limited access to capital and unproven operating systems. We believe the lessons learned from the last cycle will scale well in the current economic environment."
