Provident Financial plc Reports Interim Management Statement for the Period from 1 January to 7 May 2014

Provident Financial plc reported interim management statement for the period from 1 January to 7 May 2014. The group has made a very good start to 2014. Vanquis Bank has continued to generate strong customer growth and margins through developing its presence in the under-served, non-standard credit card market and Consumer Credit Division is making excellent progress in repositioning the home credit business as a leaner, better-quality business focused on returns rather than growth, whilst building the capability for the more rapid development of the Satsuma online installment lending business from later this year. Credit quality in both businesses is good and the group's funding position is strong, providing confidence that the group is on track to deliver good quality growth in 2014.
