What did MoneyMe announce?
Investors are buying up MoneyMe shares after the fintech lender revealed strong results for the month of May.
According to today’s release, MoneyMe achieved record originations of $57 million for May. This represents a 384% increase on the $11.8 million it achieved in May 2020. By contrast, March and April 2021 saw $47 million and $44 million in originations, respectively.
Complementing the improved performance, the company said it is experiencing significant originations from Autopay. The secured vehicle finance solution, which launched in April, exceeded $1.2 million in cars financed during May. Pleasingly, MoneyMe expects this result to more than double in June.
MoneyMe managing director and CEO Clayton Howes said of the result:
We are very pleased to report the continuing growth and momentum in MoneyMe. Another record originations result for last month is a direct result of our products continuing to deliver amazing customer experiences, including from automated decisioning and fast settlement and across a diversified product set.
Our latest product, the newly launched Autopay, is a ground-breaking innovation and demand from the dealer and broker industry for the product has been significant and we expect origination volumes in Autopay to grow materially.
