BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FlexShopper, Inc. (OTCQB Symbol: FPAY, "FlexShopper") announced today that gross lease originations increased 203%, from 13,064 for the year ended December 31, 2014 to 39,565 for the year ended December 31, 2015.
Brad Bernstein, CEO, stated, "As previously reported, November 2015 was a very strong lease origination month for FlexShopper and this momentum continued until Christmas such that we originated over 10,000 leases in December alone, primarily through our ecommerce marketplace, www.FlexShopper.com. We are very pleased that our technology and customer service department met customer demand. I answered calls in our call center and heard firsthand how our offering resonated with customers during the holidays; one customer told me that if it were not for FlexShopper, her children would not have Christmas gifts. We're pleased to have this positive impact for many families and consumers that don't have good credit or cash. We're also happy to share our success with our retail partners who received increased orders from FlexShopper. It's great to start 2016 after having a strong holiday season."
