U.S. Bank Leading Agent of up to $100 Million Credit Line for Security National Automotive Acceptance Corporation; U.S. Bank Commits $25 Million of Credit Line To SNAAC

CINCINNATI, Jun 16, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Security National Automotive Acceptance Corporation (SNAAC), based in Mason, Ohio, has selected U.S. Bank to agent a line of credit of up to $100 million. U.S. Bank, who replaces a prior agent, is lending $25 million of the credit line and is working with four other banks to provide SNAAC with up to $100 million working capital line. SNAAC currently is using $80 million of the $100 million line.

U.S. Bank is assisting SNAAC to meet its treasury management needs and will offer private banking, group banking and trust services.

Headquartered near Cincinnati, Ohio, SNAAC provides dealers of pre-owned automobiles with competitive financing programs for military personnel, who may have little or no access to alternative sources of financing. The Company also offers approved dealers automated underwriting and same-day approval for loan applications submitted through the Internet.

SNAAC is licensed to do business in 24 states and purchases contracts from over 600 approved dealers. Theodore and Beverly A. Catino founded the Company 16 years ago. As of March 31, 2003, SNAAC owned or managed approximately $110 million of gross receivables and generated net interest income and net income of $4.23 million and $1.3 million, respectively for the first quarter of 2003.

Theodore Catino, CEO of SNAAC, said, "We selected U.S. Bank because they are as adaptable, flexible and customer-driven as we are. We were also happy with service they provided with an earlier $25 million line of credit. Our new credit arrangement will enable us to cost-effectively grow our business as a leader in providing financial services to automotive dealers servicing military personnel."

David Sceva, Senior Vice President of U.S. Bank's Business Credit Group, commented, "We have a dedicated group of people here who are committed to providing quality financial solutions to help companies grow in a competitive business environment."
