Euroloan signs financing facility and gets introduced to the Inc. 5000 list

Euroloan Group PLC, the rapidly growing international group specialized in highly automated financial services and financial technology (FinTech), has finalized the first phase of its capital structuring plan, a new financing facility of EUR 15 million. The company's growth has also been recognized by Inc. 5000, the list of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

Helsinki, Finland, 2015-02-20 08:34 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With funding secured, the Group now is set for continued rapid growth in its consumer finance business. Samuli Korpinen, the CEO of Euroloan Consumer Finance PLC comments: “Our virtual credit card product has been extremely well received in all the markets we operate in and we have experienced a strong growth rate in our lending volumes during 2014 to the extent that all available capital had been employed to customers. The demand for our services has grown in all markets to the extent that this growth rate is expected to continue in 2015, which now is made possible with the new financing facility in place. We definitely expect to see high growth rates in our 2015 financials”.

In November 2014, Euroloan mandated a consortium of four international financial services providers to raise capital to meet Euroloan's rapid growth targets and to strengthen the Group's capital structure ahead of Basel III and CRD IV capital requirements.The total planned structure includes a combination of Common Equity Tier I, Additional Tier I, Tier II and senior debt exceeding total of EUR 100 million during the next 2-3 years from which Euroloan now secures 15 million Euros. A strong capital base gives the Group flexibility to grow while maintaining high capital ratios on its balance sheet.

“In the rapid growth phase liquidity management, compliance, risk management and consistent processes are the key factors to success. Thanks to our extraordinary Team, I believe we have a very bright future ahead of us. Having witnessed the hard work our Team has put in building the company to handle rapid growth, I am very proud of being introduced to the list of Europe’s fastest growing companies, the Inc. 5000” Tommi Lindfors, Executive Chairman of Euroloan Group PLC comments.
