OnDeck Proving to be Extremely Valuable Acquisition for Enova
When Enova acquired OnDeck, it thought that the company’s legacy portfolio would have very little value. Now that the dust has settled, it’s become a gold mine. “We now expect to receive over $200 million of total cash from the acquired portfolio, net of securitization repayments,” said Enova CEO David Fisher in the company’s quarterly earnings call.
Enova reported that small business lending was now more than 50% of their portfolio and that they recorded originations of $322 million in small business funding in Q1.
“From an operational perspective, the integration of OnDeck is largely complete,” Fisher added. “Our three SMB products are working together as a single business, and we are on track to deliver more than the forecasted $50 million of annual cost synergies, primarily from eliminated duplicative resources as well as $15 million in run rate net revenue synergies.”
OnDeck’s lending business has also allowed the company to price a $300 million securitization debt facility, backed by OnDeck term loans and lines of credit.
“We’re pleased to report a record first quarter of profitability, driven by solid credit performance, improving originations, and disciplined expense management,” said Fisher. “We are encouraged by the recent signs of a recovery in demand and believe that our diverse product offerings, nimble machine-learning-powered credit risk management capabilities, and solid balance sheet position us well to profitably accelerate growth as the economy continues to recover.”Last modified: April 30, 2021
