Enova Posts Q3 Results, Admits It is Dealing With Regulatory Situation
Enova’s Q3 report is very brief and to the point. Through both its consumer loan and business loan operations, the company generated a net income of $52M on $320M in revenue.
“We are pleased to again report a strong quarter of growth across all of our businesses,” said David Fisher, Enova’s CEO.
There was no mention of OnDeck by name this time around, its major small business lending division. Instead, Enova was sure to draw attention to a regulatory inquiry it had received from the CFPB.
“The Company has received a Civil Investigative Demand (‘CID’) from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (‘CFPB’) concerning certain loan processing issues,” the company stated. “Enova has been cooperating fully with the CFPB by providing data and information in response to the CID. Enova anticipates being able to expeditiously complete the investigation as several of the issues were self-disclosed and the Company has provided, and will continue to provide, restitution to customers who may have been negatively impacted.”
The language is particularly concessive. Whatever happened, they felt the need to self-report it and to provide restitution to customers.
This is likely to be queried in more detail during the company’s earnings call this evening.Last modified: October 28, 2021
