Mr. Todd Hudson reports


Axis Auto Finance Inc. has released its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 ending Sept. 30, 2023.

Q1 2024 Financial Highlights

Total originations of $35.8 million, consisting of $11.2 million in automotive originations and $24.6 million in equipment originations;

For the quarter ending September 30, 2023, auto loan originations were $11.2 million, down from $44.5 million in auto loan originations in the first quarter of 2023, as credit and underwriting parameters were further tightened.

Equipment finance origination volumes in the quarter were $24.6 million, down 17% from $29.6 million in the comparable quarter of 2023. First quarter originations consisted of $10.9 million owned and on balance sheet, with $13.7 million being brokered for third parties or originated for syndication partners.

Revenues for the quarter were $10.0 million, a decrease of 2.0% from the first quarter of prior year. Automotive annualized realized credit loss rate (2) for the quarter was 12.59%, down from 12.90% in the prior quarter, but an increase from 8.19% during the same quarter of the prior year.
