Paragon acquires further RBS loans

The Paragon Group of Companies has acquired further unsecured consumer loans, through its Idem Capital Securities subsidiary, from The Royal Bank of Scotland PLC under the terms of a forward flow agreement.

The consideration, which is being financed from Paragon’s cash reserves and which represents the value at which the acquired loans will be taken on to the Group’s balance sheet, is £38,000.

The acquisition follows the announcement, on 27 October 2011, of the acquisition of a portfolio of loans from The Royal Bank of Scotland PLC for consideration of £43.2 million and subsequent announcements of further modest acquisitions of unsecured consumer loans from time to time under the forward flow agreement.
