Hoist Finance has entered into an agreement to lease and subsequently acquire the business going concern of the Italian debt collection companies Maran S.p.A. and R&S S.rl. (“Maran Group”) in a multistep process, in the context of their composition with creditors (concordato preventivo) pursuant to Italian Insolvency Law.

- The acquisition of the Maran Group will add capacity and competence to our current activities in Italy and create an integrated servicing platform that enables us to be a full-service debt restructuring partner to the Italian financial sector, says Klaus-Anders Nysteen, CEO of Hoist Finance.

- Following the acquisition of the Maran Group, we will be able to offer the full spectrum of services sought after by the Italian banking sector, providing both servicing and portfolio acquisitions as well as a combination of the two. The acquisition will also broaden our competence in other asset classes, says Clemente Reale, Country Manager Hoist Finance Italy.

The transaction will not have a significant effect on Hoist Finance financial position.

Founded in 1993 Maran Group is a well-reputed debt collection agency with a customer base, including the larger Italian banks and financial institutions.
