StreetShares Reports $6.2M Loss For Fiscal Year 2017
StreetShares, the veteran-run small business lender, continued to post sizable losses, according to their June 30th fiscal year-end financial statements. The company had a $6,193,154 loss on only $2,168,067 in revenue. While StreetShares has generated significant buzz for their particular focus on military-owned small businesses, the lender only made 751 loans in the 12-month period and there is no requirement that the businesses they lend to actually be military-owned.
The company spent more on payroll and payroll taxes alone ($3,258,960) than they earned in revenue. They had 32 full-time employees and 1 part-time employee as of June 30th.
“As an early stage, venture-funded company that is not yet profitable, we rely heavily on capital investments to fund our operations,” the company wrote in their annual report. “Based on our current financial situation, it is likely we will require additional capital within the next twelve months beyond our currently anticipated amounts to fund the operations of the Company.”
The chart plotting their loan performances by grade below is from their annual report:
Their loan amounts typically range from $2,000 to $150,000 and require weekly payments for anywhere from 3 months to 3 years.
Even though the company spent nearly triple on marketing in this fiscal year ($1,727,478) versus the previous year ($579,331), revenue only doubled.
StreetShares plans to raise additional capital towards the end of this year through a Series B Round.Last modified: April 20, 2019
