KINGWOOD, Texas, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continuing its rapid expansion to become a major force in the payday loan market, International Merchant Advisors, Inc. (Pink Sheets: IMAI), announced today that it has extended an offer to Ole' for $750,000, paid in restricted common stock of the company.  Ole' is a leading Hispanic online payday loan marketer and lead generation company doing business throughout the United States. The purchase is subject to due diligence and a mutually satisfactory agreement executed by all parties.  

Mel Roseman, CEO of IMAI, stated, "As I mentioned when we were acquiring, the online payday loan and cash advance business trend is projected to continue its steady growth especially in the Hispanic market, with substantial profit margins. Additionally, since it is an online business, it has very low fixed operating costs, which minimizes risk for our shareholders. The current lack of consumer bank financing available and the need for worker cash between paydays is driving this business sector higher, and rates of return on these loans should translate into excellent value for our shareholders."

The Hispanic Market is the fastest growing segment of consumers in the United States.  A Census Bureau study in 2006 predicted the percentage of Hispanic population in the United States to increase to 15.5 percent of the overall population by 2010, and to 17.8 percent by 2020. In "Hispanics in the United States," the Census reported that the rate of growth of the Hispanic population was more than three times the growth rate of the total population between 2000 and 2006.
