If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should
be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)

         (a)     The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this
                 form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or
                 expense;
         (b)     The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition

                 will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the

PART III -- NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,
N-SAR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within
the prescribed period. (Attach Extra Sheets if Needed)

MCM Capital Group, Inc. (the "Company"), whose subsidiaries include Midland
Credit Management, Inc., could not complete the electronic filing of its
Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2000 (the
"Form 10-Q") by the prescribed filing date of May 15, 2000 without unreasonable
effort or expense as a result of the following:

The Company has historically reported income from receivable portfolios on the
level yield basis of accounting for all of its owned receivable portfolios.
Based upon revised collection curves developed during the financial statement
closing process for the three months ended March 31, 2000, it was determined
that the cost recovery method of accounting was the most appropriate method to
account for certain of its owned receivable portfolios which comprise
approximately one-half of the carrying value of the Company's total investment
in receivable portfolios. The revised collection curves were necessary for the
Company to prepare its financial statements. The underlying calculations
necessary for this change are significant to the Company for its actual results
for the three months ended March 31, 2000 and its forecasted results for the
next twelve months. As a result of the effort required to perform these
calculations, the Company could not, without unreasonable effort or expense,
timely complete its Form 10-Q.

                                     ANNEX A


For the reasons stated in Part III to this Form 12b-25, the Company's Form 10-Q
for the three months ended March 31, 2000 cannot be filed by the prescribed date
of May 15, 2000. The Company expects to report in its Form 10-Q for the three
months ended March 31, 2000 (i) revenues of $7.9 million in the 2000 period
compared with $4.2 million in the 1999 period, (ii) operating expenses of $7.7
million in the 2000 period compared with $5.4 million in the 1999 period, (iii)
other expenses of $3.9 million in the 2000 period compared with $0.1 million in
the 1999 period and (iv) net loss of $2.2 million in the 2000 period compared
with $0.8 million in the 1999 period.

The revenues are higher in the three months ended March 31, 2000 compared with
the same period in 1999 principally due to increases in income from receivable
portfolios and income from retained interest. The increase in operating expenses
in the three months ended March 31, 2000 compared with the same period in 1999
is due primarily to an increase in salaries, employee benefits and occupancy
costs as a result of the Company's growth of its Phoenix collection facility and
increased collector productivity which results in higher wages to collections
personnel. The increase in other expenses is due to an increase in interest
expense associated with higher average borrowings and a $2.1 million provision
for portfolio losses in the three months ended March 31, 2000 recorded as a
result of a decrease in forecasted collections on certain of the Company's
receivable portfolios. The increase in the net loss in the three months ended
March 31, 2000 compared to the same period in 1999 is due to the increase in
operating expenses, the increase in interest expense and the provision for
portfolio losses in the three months ended March 31, 2000 partially offset by
higher revenues in the three months ended March 31, 2000.
