We are extremely pleased to report incredible growth and momentum in MoneyMe. The record revenue, originations and customer receivables demonstrate our business is accelerating. At the same time credit quality is increasing and we're seeing strong take-up from customers across diversified products and distribution channels. This quarter's results include significant momentum in our first secured product, Autopay, the breakthrough innovation in car lending with dealerships signing up to the new platform and a faster than expected take-up from car purchasers.
