Forward looking statements and other important information

This document contains forward looking statements, which are statements that are not historical facts and that reflect Funding Circle's beliefs and expectations with respect to future events and financial and operational performance. These forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions, estimates and other factors, which may be beyond the control of Funding Circle and which may cause actual results or performance to differ materially from those expressed or implied from such forward-looking statements.  Nothing contained within this document is or should be relied upon as a warranty, promise or representation, express or implied, as to the future performance of Funding Circle or its business. Any historical information contained in this statistical information is not indicative of future performance.

The information contained in this document is provided as of the dates shown.  Nothing in this document should be construed as legal, tax, investment, financial, or accounting advice, or solicitation for or an offer to invest in Funding Circle. 

 

Definitions and notes to the editor:

1. In 2017, Funding Circle took the decision to no longer lend to property developers in the United Kingdom, the one market in which it had previously expanded its product set beyond amortising SME loans. As a result, the Board excludes property lending when measuring ongoing business performance.

2. Group and UK Loans under Management by year include property lending. Loans under Management related solely to property were, by year: 2012/2013: £0; 2014: £26 million; 2015: £115 million; 2016: £163 million; 2017: £95 million; September 2018: £32 million.

3. Group and UK originations by year include property lending. Group originations related solely to property lending were, by year: 2012/2013: £0; 2014: £23 million; 2015: £114 million; 2016: £171 million; 2017: £107 million; 2018 year to date: £5 million.

4. The projected annual return shows how loans are estimated to perform. Loans are shown by the year they were taken out, and are after fees and bad debt. Returns equal gross yield minus net losses minus servicing fee and is estimated, using an internally managed model, by cohort of origination incorporating actual returns received for each cohort and adding future expected returns which are determined using the same aforementioned model. Net yield is compounded to recognise re-investment. These expectations may be revised, for example if macroeconomic conditions change, and the projected return, projected gross yield and the projected bad debt rate may be adjusted to reflect this.

5. The projected bad debt rate shows the projected annualised percentage of loans, by loan amount, that will not be repaid. Loans are shown by the year they were taken out and include recoveries. It can take up to five years for loans to be fully repaid, so the projected return, projected gross yield and projected bad debt rate take into account how each year of loans are performing and how Funding Circle expects them to perform in future. These expectations may be revised, for example if macroeconomic conditions change, and the projected return, projected gross yield and the projected bad debt rate may be adjusted to reflect this.
