James Hickson, CEO of Mash Group is pleased with the Group’s performance for the first half of 2018: “Our strong momentum has continued in the first half of 2018 thanks to the commitment of our team and partners. During the second quarter, we saw our lending volumes continue to grow as planned, being three times the level compared to the same period last year. We also saw the positive impact of our decision to move to interest-based pricing, with our revenue growing faster than our lending volumes in the second quarter compared to the first”, said Group CEO James Hickson. “This demonstrates the strong competitive position of our lending business model. We anticipate this strong growth to continue in H2 2018, supported by our new customer acquisition channels and going live in the Spanish market in Q2/18.”

“We are also very pleased with our continued focus and investment on in-store pay-later solutions, having grown our merchant base significantly this year and reached record lending volumes at point of sale. Notably, payment channels generated 40% of our new customer base in the first half of the year, underscoring the validity of our strategic decision. We continue to make investments for the long term in this acquisition channel and explore new opportunities to enhance our capability, identify new partners and expand our merchant and consumer offering”

Tommi Lindfors, Chairman of Mash Group added, “The rapid growth trajectory and financial performance during the first half shows the scalability of our business model. The Group set new records not only in terms of business growth (lending volumes and revenues) but also in terms of equity raised and new funding capabilities to support the high growth of our loan portfolio. The fact that we managed to secure EUR 25 million in equity and over EUR 100 million in funding underscores the belief from our new and existing investors in our go-forward business and strategy, which continues to be ratified by our results.””

The Group confirmed that they will communicate Q3 2018 figures on Monday 12th of November.
