FINANCE COMPANIES - A P R I L 1973

April.

Consumer credit outstanding at finance companies rc se $328 million during
A l l major types of credit contributed to this greater than seasonal rise,

Consumer credit extended by finance companies in Ap ril, on the other hand,
was $22 million less than the amount extended in M a r c h .
Both passenger care and
personal loan extensions were smaller than those reported a in
onth ago. April
extensions for these types of credit, however, remained very high.
C
Total business credit outstanding increased only $5 0 million in April as a
result of large drops in both loans on commercial accounts receivable and factored
accounts receivable. April extensions of business credit were $620 million less than
in the previous month; all major types of credit with the exception of retail credit
on business, industrial and farm equipment.contributed to th:.s smaller volume. By
comparison, April 1972 extensions tiere $1,061 million smaller than in the previous
m o n t h of that year and $2,216 million less than in the current April.
