The Company

Franchise Services of North America Inc. (TSXV: FSN) is the largest car rental franchisor in North America. The Company operates in the car, van and light truck rental space, alongside a broad range of insurance products, both business and personal, to its franchisees and to the automobile industry.

As an umbrella company, it owns and operates the following brands: U-Save Car & Truck Rental, U-Save Car Sales, Auto Rental Resource Center (ARRC), Xpress Rent-A-Car and Peakstone Financial Services. Revenues from the brands in FY 2007 totaled US $18.2 million.

The Company is well buffered from turmoil in the US and Global economies since FSNA incurs very little risk and uses a small working capital line of credit when needed. Car rentals can be expected to increase during difficult times.

Unique to FSNA's model is having Peakstone as a wholly-owned subsidiary to offer all franchisees a one-stop shopping point for all insurance needs. Subsidiaries and franchisees have solid business models to follow allowing FSNA’s board and management to work aggressively to find new opportunities for their franchisees, such as in-airport rental locations, and advantageous listings with online travel websites such as Kayak.com and Expedia.com.

An opportunity for expansion has arisen due to a conversion wave of car rental franchises into corporately owned companies, such as with Hertz and Dollar-Thrifty. This opportunity leaves a pool of entrepreneurs interested in purchasing a franchise. Each new franchisee has met strict operational and capital criteria to join the FSNA team.

The Company plans to expand the U-Save brand further into the US, along with other heavily travelled areas of the world, while continuing to provide franchisees with quality corporate support in Marketing and Insurance.
