MUSA Auto Finance will rebrand as DRIVRZ Financial in the coming months.

DALLAS, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- MUSA Auto Finance, an automotive finance and technology lender specializing in effortless leasing, has announced that it will rebrand as DRIVRZ Financial.

This new brand will serve as the leasing and finance division of PowerBand Solutions (TSXV: PBX) (OTCQB: PWWBF) (Frankfurt: 1ZVA) (“PowerBand”, “PBX” or the “Company”), which acquired a 60 percent share of MUSA in July 2019.

The company will continue growing its indirect lending business while also branching into direct-to-consumer financing, traditional retail financing, and lending across the full credit spectrum.

MUSA’s initiatives will culminate in a one-stop mobile marketplace where consumers and auto dealers can lease, buy, sell, trade-in, auction and insure vehicles on any digital device. MUSA will provide fast, convenient leasing and financing options through the app.

“Simplifying complex processes through automation has been our hallmark since MUSA opened its doors,” said Jon Lamb, CEO of MUSA Auto Finance. “We look forward to bringing the same impeccable user experience to the DRIVRZ mobile app and all our new business lines.”

MUSA will transition to the DRIVRZ Financial brand over the next several months.

About MUSA Auto Finance
MUSA Auto Finance is an auto finance company and a technology innovator in the new and pre-owned vehicle industry. The company originates its customers from franchised and select independent dealers.

Since its inception, MUSA has automated the time-consuming, manual processes traditionally associated with leasing and buying a vehicle. One of MUSA’s technology platforms processes the application, calculates the lease, auto-decisions the application, provides an approval back to the dealer partner, and accurately pre-fills the lease contract in seconds. Automated approvals normally occur in just a few seconds, and consumers can even upload supporting documents via their mobile device.

In 2019, MUSA partnered with PowerBand Solutions, Inc. (TSXV: PBX) (OTCQB: PWWBF) (Frankfurt: 1ZVA) (“PowerBand”, “PBX” or the “Company”).
