IOU Financial Was Profitable in Q1
IOU Financial may have originated $59.6M in small business loans in Q1, but the company also managed to do it profitably. Specifically, IOU recorded net earnings of $1.1M in Q1 2022 compared to a $100,000 net loss over the same period the year prior.
“IOU Financial continues to deliver on its promise to stakeholders by growing loan originations and increasing profitability while continuing to invest the scalability of its operations and technology,” said Robert Gloer, President and CEO in a public statement.
IOU’s Q1 revenue totaled $3.9M, earned mostly from servicing and fee revenue that is generated by its marketplace model. $500,000 of it was attributed to referral fee revenue earned by IOU’s direct-to-merchant retail operation called ZING Funding.Last modified: May 19, 2022
