APS Holding was established in 2004 in response to the need for servicing the portfolios of non-performing loans purchased by Slavia Capital (the parent company of APS) in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In 10 years from that time, APS Holding has opened branches in Slovakia, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia.

2007 represents the beginning of the receivables collection activity under the aegis of APS in Poland and Romania, the latter going through various stages of development throughout the eight years of existence on the local market.

In 2011, APS Holding is acquiring, in partnership with Slavia Capital, the consumer finance division of KBC Consumer Finance Romania and signs a servicing agreement for the management of corporate portfolio of secured loans belonging to Corporate Recovery Management (CRM), MKB branch (currently Nextebank).

The partnership with Slavia Capital materialized once again with the acquisition of the company Auto Trade Leasing IFN Romania, in December 2012.

In 2014, APS Holding has signed an agreement with International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank group, by which the American giant commits to finance acquisitions with up to 20 million EUR of non-performing assets in the Central and Eastern Europe area.

Meanwhile, APS Romania has emerged as one of the most active managers of performing and non-performing loans and as a partner of the largest financial and non-financial companies in the country. Moreover, APS Romania is the only company capable of managing guaranteed corporate SME and retail cases, acquiring 100% of such portfolios on sale on the local market.


APS Holding SE achieved significant milestones in three key areas of its business in 2014.
