                  Encore Capital Group Inc was incorporated in Delaware in 1999. The Company is a specialty finance company providing debt recovery solutions for consumers and property owners. The Company purchase portfolios of defaulted consumer rece...moreivables at deep discounts to face value and manage them by working with individuals as they repay their obligations and work toward financial recovery. Defaulted receivables are consumers unpaid financial commitments to credit originators, including banks, credit unions, consumer finance companies, commercial retailers, and telecommunication companies. It conducts business through two reportable segments: portfolio purchasing and recovery and tax lien business. Its portfolio purchasing and recovery segment purchases receivables based on robust, account-level valuation me...morethods and employs proprietary statistical and behavioral models across the full extent of its operations. These investments allow the Company to value portfolios accurately (and limit the risk of overpaying), avoid buying portfolios that are incompatible with its methods or goals and align the accounts it purchase with its operational channels to maximize future collections. Its tax lien business segment focuses on the property tax financing industry. Through its subsidiary Propel the Company assist Texas and Nevada property owners who are delinquent on their property taxes by paying these taxes on behalf of the property owners in exchange for payment agreements collateralized by a tax lien on the property. Propels main activities are the acquisition and servicing of residential and commercial tax liens on real property. Propel pays their tax lien obligation to the taxing authority and the property owner pays Propel over time at a lower interest rate than is being assessed by the taxing authority. Propel also purchases Tax Liens in various other states directly from taxing authorities, securing rights to future property tax payments, interest and penalties. Its portfolio purchase and recovery business includes accounts originated in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Colombia and Peru. The Company competes with various collection and financial services companies. It also competes with traditional contingency collection agencies and in-house recovery departments. Its debt purchasing and collection activities are subject to federal, state, and municipal statutes, rules, regulations, and ordinances that establish specific guidelines and procedures that debt purchasers and collectors must follow when collecting consumer accounts.lessless
