Pioneer Credit acquires debt portfolio from Max Recovery Australia

SYDNEY: Pioneer Credit Limited has acquired a significant Part IX (Insolvency) Debt Portfolio from Max Recovery Australia Pty Ltd (‘Max’) for a total consideration of $15.8m.

Max Recovery Australia recently undertook a strategic review of its Australian operations and decided to exit the Australian market and sell its Australian-based Debt Portfolio.

Notably, Pioneer has been appointed sole buyer of the entire portfolio.

This appointment recognises Pioneer’s differentiated servicing and strong reputation in the Australian marketplace.

The portfolio consists mainly of banking and finance products with the entire portfolio originated from vendors which Pioneer has existing relationships with and each of whom have consented to this transaction.

The acquisition is partly funded by Pioneer’s recently established finance facility with Nomura Australia Limited and from equity.

Pioneer’s Managing Director Keith John commented “We are pleased to have been awarded this significant portfolio. The transaction reflects well on Pioneer’s standing in the Australian market as a preferred provider for supporting multiple tier-1 PDP vendors’ customers as they recover from financial difficulties.”

Pioneer reaffirms its FY24 Purchased Debt Portfolio (PDP) Investment Guidance of $85m announced on 8 December 2023, which following settlement of this transaction, will be approximately 90% completed.
