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.

NEW YORK—February 2, 2016—Credibly, a tech and data-inspired lending platform that makes access to capital for small businesses simple and intuitive, announces the closing of a $70 million credit facility with SunTrust Bank, one of the nation’s largest financial services firms, and Alostar Bank of Commerce, a specialty provider of asset-based loans. SunTrust served as the structuring and administrative agent, committing $50 million, with Alostar coming in as the first participant with a $20 million commitment. The terms of the deal allow for flexibility to increase the committed amount by another $30 million, bringing the total facility potential to $100 million.
An online lending platform that delivers a broad range of short- and long-term capital to satisfy the entire SMB credit spectrum, Credibly has provided access to capital for more than 4,500 businesses in over 300 industries. In the past year, the company has increased revenue 100%, was recognized by Crain’s as one of the 50 fastest growing companies in New York, and made its second consecutive appearance on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing private companies in America.
The new credit facility is consistent with Credibly’s three-prong financing strategy: on-balance sheet, whole loan sales, and securitization. The facility more than doubles Credibly’s onbalance sheet funding capacity, accelerating their ability to provide more small businesses with access to affordable capital, regardless of credit profile or life cycle stage.
“Being vetted and validated by a bank partner of SunTrust’s stature is one of our greatest milestones to date, and provides us with one of the lowest costs of capital in the industry,” said Glenn Goldman, CEO of Credibly. “The continued participation from Alostar – our first credit facility lender going back to 2014 – gives us increased flexibility in our product suite, which in turn provides better terms for borrowers and helps us execute on our core philosophy that all small businesses deserve access to right-sized capital.”
“SunTrust is pleased to work with Credibly to assist them in achieving their mission to fuel American entrepreneurship through access to capital,” said Tarun Mehta, Group Head, Financial Institutions Investment Banking at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.
“The new SunTrust facility is a validation of the strength of the platform and team that Credibly has built. We remain extremely excited about our partnership with Glenn and his team” said Steve Begleiter, Managing Director at Flexpoint Ford, LLC, a private equity firm that added Credibly to its portfolio in 2014.

An internet movement started last week to buy one of the only remaining original copies of the United States Constitution reached a roaring climax on Thursday night and then descended into chaos and confusion as almost no one seemed to know what the outcome was, how auctions work, who was bidding on the movement’s behalf, or anything at all.
Several news outlets reported that the Decentralized Autonomous Organization, aka DAO (pronounced “Dow”), representing the internet movement, had won, including the crypto-focused outlet Coindesk. The DAO raised approximately $47 million via ethereum contributions in a matter of just days from a total of more than 17,437 people who joined in (yours truly included). Knowing that, most people were lured into believing that the winning bid of $43.2 million had to have been the DAO. Unfortunately, the contributors seemed largely unaware of the hefty fees charged on top by Sotheby’s, the 8.875% sales tax, and more. I wrote about this two days prior.
This snafu seems to have been expected by those skeptical of an internet movement. Having actually stood outside of Sotheby’s earlier in the day in full George Washington-esque garb, I was asked by someone seemingly connected to a bidder if the DAO was aware of the added fees. I told them what I knew, but I couldn’t speak in the affirmative for the other 17,436 people.
Having also crossed paths with Julian Weisser, however, a Core team member and nice fellow, it was clear that he was extremely knowledgeable about all the details involved. Weisser was also the first team member to officially announce the loss on the discord.
“@everyone – We did not win the bid for the copy of the U.S. constitution.
While this wasn’t the outcome we hoped for, we still made history tonight with ConstitutionDAO. This is the largest crowdfund for a physical object that we are aware of—crypto or fiat. We are so incredibly grateful to have done this together with you all and are still in shock that we even got this far.
Sotheby’s has never worked with a DAO community before. We broke records for the most money crowdfunded in less than 72 hours. We have educated an entire cohort of people around the world – from museum curators and art directors to our grandmothers asking us what eth is when they read about us in the news – about the possibilities of web3. And, on the flip side, many of you have learned about what it means to steward an asset like the U.S. constitution across museums and collections, or watched an art auction for the first time.
We had 17,437 donors, with a median donation size of $206.26. A significant percentage of these donations came from wallets that were initialized for the first time.
You will be able to get a refund of your pro rata amount (effectively minus gas fees) through Juicebox. Please expect more details from us about this tomorrow – our team has not slept in the past week, and we are giving people the night to get some rest before we’re back at it tomorrow AM.
Every one of you were a part of this. We want to also thank our partners in this work: Alameda Research, Endoament, FTX US, Juicebox, Morning Brew, and SyndicateDAO”
Once the results finally started to kick in, feelings were mixed. Discord members were torn between feeling completely bamboozled or excited to use a DAO to make some other kind of meaningful purchase. The leadership behind the organization’s official twitter account signed off for the night early after working around the clock for about a week to even put the entire thing together.
gn everyone we’ll be back tomorrow
thanks for all your love and support. can’t wait to shape the next leg of this journey with you all 🙂 🌙 📜 https://t.co/Vhtiglpntg

By any measure, the dollars involved were astounding. This particular copy of the Constitution last sold in 1988 for the price of $165,000. Sotheby’s pegged the current value at $15 – $20 million. With $47 million in hand, winning seemed a strong possibility. The one major problem, however, is that with the blockchain being a public ledger, the rival bidder already knew the DAO’s best bid.
Overall, it was a rather strange experience, no doubt made more unusual by my throwing down eth and then donning a costume on the Upper East Side of Manhattan to the bewilderment of many locals.
Was this ultimately a loss for crypto or still a win? Only time will tell…
Yes Lender is now Fintegra. Along with the name change, the company is bringing on Roger Ferguson, former Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve (1997-2006) in an advisory role. Ferguson is also an investor in Fintegra.
“Our new name combines ‘fintech’ with ‘integrity’” said Glenn Forman, CEO at Fintegra. [The name] serves as a daily reminder to our customers and colleagues of our mission and values, which we take very seriously.”
The company’s goal is seemingly to write a lot of deals, and get them funded as fast as possible through a fintech application process. According to a press release, the online application can get merchants their funds within 24 hours of their application being submitted.
When touching upon Fintegra’s goals with the rebranding, Forman spoke on a good work environment along with customer-centric business decisions. “We’re committed to putting capital in the hands of entrepreneurs so they can grow their businesses and improve the lives of their customers, suppliers and employees, and we’ll continue to do so in a highly ethical and empathetic way.”
When speaking about the partnership with Ferguson, Forman believes this unprecedented addition will bring equally unprecedented opportunities to this company.
“We’re incredibly fortunate to be able to tap Roger’s wisdom and experience to accelerate Fintegra’s growth. His track record of success and impeccable ethics are perfectly aligned with our brand.”
Forman and Ferguson are looking to rekindle an old working relationship to help Fintegra take off. “While it’s been a few years since we worked together at McKinsey & Company, it feels great to be joining forces again to take Fintegra to new heights.”
