What We Learned About Credibly From Credibly’s Securitization
Today, Credibly CEO Ryan Rosett told deBanked that the company’s October securitization will be used, in part, to roll out its new Market Expansion Product (MXP), which will allow Credibly to service merchants with FICO scores as low as 500 and those that have been in business for less time.
“We believe the MXP will open up the funnel by allowing us to serve business owners that we previously couldn’t,” Rosett said.
Kroll Bond Rating Agency assigned preliminary ratings to three classes of notes as part of Credibly’s first securitization. Rosett said this securitization follows a large warehouse line of credit from SunTrust Bank which is also the primary underwriter, of the securitization.
In addition to the new MXP product, Rosett said that Credibly intends to launch a line of credit product in 2019. Currently, Credibly provides merchant cash advances up to $150,000, business expansion loans up to $250,000, with terms up to 24 months, and working capital loans up to $250,000 with terms up to 17 months. Rosett said that the company’s working capital loan is its most popular product.
In an interview yesterday with Benzinga, Rosett said that he has seen a strong increase in demand for Credibly’s products and that they are currently evaluating over 10,000 applications per month.
