Donlen Corporation Engages Fourth Fleet Financial For Driver Sale Financing Program

January 9, 2003

Donlen Corporation announced it has chosen Fourth Fleet Financial, Inc. to provide automotive financing options for its Personal Sale Program. Donlen says it selected the company for its unique, highly specialized approach to financing end-of-term fleet driver sales and its commitment to matching each customer with an appropriate lending partner.

According to the company, Fourth Fleet Financial was founded specifically to create custom tailored financial services that enhance existing remarketing efforts of partnering financial institutions. The company delivers broad credit spectrum coverage via a multi-lender network of automotive finance companies.

“The company’s proprietary processes and unique portfolio of lending sources provides depth to our Personal Sale Program leading to a more valuable service for our clients,” said Layne Weber, director of Vehicle Remarketing. The Personal Sale program is an important vehicle remarketing option for Donlen clients. “By increasing the reach and capability of our existing personal sale program, Fourth Fleet Financial helps us add another level to this valuable program. Until now, we have steered clear from adding financing to our current program as the existing market solutions have not been sufficient to meet the needs of our clients. We think that the Fourth Fleet program is a nice option for our client base,” added Weber.

Fourth Fleet Financial and its partner lenders provide a comprehensive solution for Donlen Personal Sale customers. Fourth Fleet Financial says it handles the entire credit application and loan contracting transaction directly and discreetly with each respective customer. Once a loan is consummated and the required lease buyout is satisfied, Fourth Fleet’s process facilitates the remote titling and registration of the vehicle into the respective purchasing individual’s name.

“Donlen has a greater than 35 year tradition of customer commitment and technological innovation,” said Jeffrey L. Danford, president & CEO for Fourth Fleet Financial. “We’re pleased to be working with such a respected veteran of the fleet management industry. The entire Fourth Fleet team is honored to have been chosen by Donlen and we look forward to working jointly to deliver an enhanced Personal Sale service to Donlen clients.”
