Net pre-tax proceeds to CompuCredit are estimated to be approximately $160.0 million after the purchase of minority shares and other transaction related expenditures.  The transaction is subject to U.K. regulatory approval and a financing condition and is expected to close in approximately 90 days.  UBS Investment Bank acted as sole financial adviser to CompuCredit.
