So, let’s just set the record straight.
Unlike other companies that have sought government loans to keep their manufacturing and operations afloat, we are not seeking any funds for operational expenses. A role of the JBIC is to respond to financial disorder in the international economy. TFSC’s discussion with the JBIC is to explore additional sources of funding so that we can continue to provide consumers access to the credit they need.
Exploring funding options with the JBIC is not terribly unlike the many other endeavors to arrange funding that we undertake every day. We keep a diversified array of funding sources to ensure that we can do our part to keep credit available to car buyers and dealers at a reasonable cost. In fact, most analysts and industry observers have praised TFSC for considering the JBIC as a funding source.
Anything that can help ease the American and global credit crunch and get consumers back into the showrooms should be considered a positive move.
