the occurrence of certain events of default under the documents governing the facilities.
We have received waivers regarding the potential breach of certain covenants relating to minimum net worth and maintenance of active warehouse credit facilities. Without such waivers, certain credit enhancement providers would have had the right to terminate us as servicer with respect to certain of outstanding securitization pools. Although such rights have been waived, such waivers are temporary, and there can be no assurance as to their fu- ture extension. We do, however, believe that we will obtain such future extensions because it is generally not in the interest of any party to the securitization transaction to transfer servicing. Nevertheless, there can be no assur- ance as to our belief being correct. The loss of our servicing rights could materially and adversely affect our re- sults of operations, financial condition and cash flows. Our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows, would be materially and adversely affected if we were to be terminated as servicer with respect to a material portion of the automobile contracts for which we are receiving servicing fees.
If We Lose Key Personnel, Our Results of Operations May Be Impaired.
Our senior management team averages thirteen years of service with us. Charles E. Bradley, Jr., our President and CEO, has been our President since our formation in 1991. Our future operating results depend in significant part upon the continued service of our key senior management personnel, none of whom is bound by an employ- ment agreement. Our future operating results also depend in part upon our ability to attract and retain qualified management, technical, sales and support personnel for our operations. Competition for such personnel is intense. We cannot assure you that we will be successful in attracting or retaining such personnel. Layoffs that we have implemented since 2008 may have reduced employee loyalty, which may in turn result in decreased employee performance. Conversely, adverse general economic conditions may have had a countervailing effect. The loss of any key employee, the failure of any key employee to perform in his or her current position or our inability to at- tract and retain skilled employees, as needed, could materially and adversely affect our results of operations, fi- nancial condition and cash flows.
If We Fail to Comply with Regulations, Our Results of Operations May Be Impaired.
Failure to materially comply with all laws and regulations applicable to us could materially and adversely affect our ability to operate our business. Our business is subject to numerous federal and state consumer protection laws and regulations, which, among other things:
require us to obtain and maintain certain licenses and qualifications;
limit the interest rates, fees and other charges we are allowed to charge;
limit or prescribe certain other terms of our automobile contracts;
require specific disclosures to our customers;
define our rights to repossess and sell collateral; and
maintain safeguards designed to protect the security and confidentiality of customer information.
We believe that we are in compliance in all material respects with all such laws and regulations, and that such laws and regulations have had no material adverse effect on our ability to operate our business. However, we may be materially and adversely affected if we fail to comply with:
applicable laws and regulations;
changes in existing laws or regulations;
changes in the interpretation of existing laws or regulations; or
any additional laws or regulations that may be enacted in the future.
Recent Legislation and Proposed Regulations May Have an Adverse Effect on Our Business.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act ("Dodd-Frank") mandates the most wide- ranging overhaul of financial industry regulation in decades. Dodd-Frank was signed into law on July 21, 2010, and is now in the implementation stage. The law provides a regulatory framework and requires that regulators, some of which are new regulatory bodies created by Dodd-Frank, draft, review and approve more than 200 im- plementing regulations and conduct numerous studies that are likely to lead to more regulations. In addition, the Commission has recently proposed amendments to regulations first adopted in 2005 known as Regulation AB. The amendments to Regulation AB have yet to be adopted and are expected to be significantly modified from the form initially proposed, however, the final form of the amendments to Regulation AB when adopted are expected to adversely affect CPS’s ability to complete securitization transactions without increased expense.
