The Money3 Corp Ltd (ASX: MNY) share price is on the rise today after a rocky start. This movement comes after the company announced a positive update to the ASX.

At the time of writing, the financial services company’s shares are exchanging hands for $2.89, up 0.7%.

Quick take on Money3

Founded in 2000, the Victorian-based business specialises in non-bank automotive finance throughout Australia and New Zealand. This includes flexible secured and unsecured personal loans for a period of up to 5 years. Money3’s brands include Cash Train and Personal Finance Co.

Money3 upgrades guidance

Investors are warming to Money3’s encouraging release.

In a statement to the ASX, Money3 advised that due to improved trading conditions, it expects its net profit after tax (NPAT) to increase. This is based on the company’s strong new loan originations which recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30.2%. In addition, favourable economic conditions along with anticipated cash collections during Q4 FY21 is driving the profit expectation.

Accordingly, Money3 upgraded its profit guidance for FY21 to $38 million. This represents a jump from the $36 million that was previously indicated in its February half-year results.

Comments from the CEO

Money3 CEO, Scott Baldwin touched on the company’s progress, commenting:

We continue to experience strong organic new loan originations through the second half of the financial year and expect this trend to continue into FY22.

While the forecasted result is uplifting, used vehicle pricing is predicted to stabilise. The company estimates to carry a large number of pre-approved loans in FY22, due to delays in new asset delivery.
