Lightspeed Capital: ‘we intend to grow our MCA business’
After facing criticism from stock analysts for not doing enough merchant cash advances, Lightspeed CFO Asha Bakshani said that the POS company intends to grow its MCA business. The comment came during the company’s fiscal Q2 2024 earnings call, where it revealed that it had originated $10.1M in MCAs for the quarter.
Bakshani noted, however, that by doing these deals on balance sheet, it has to balance its origination goals with its available working capital. Revenue on its MCAs were up 120% YoY.
One interesting detail is that the company revealed that its gross margin on MCAs is 95%.
