OnDeck announced fourth quarter 2018 net income of $14 million, an increase from $9.8 million from the previous quarter. The company’s full year 2018 net income of $27.7 million was significantly improved from its net loss of $11.5 million in 2017.
“Our record fourth quarter earnings cap a year of significant progress at OnDeck, highlighted by strong growth and improved profitability,” said Noah Breslow, OnDeck CEO. “We solidified our position as the leading online lender to small businesses in the U.S., launched ODX, our platform-as-a-service business, and announced plans to scale our international operations and enter the equipment finance market. We advanced these initiatives while strengthening our balance sheet, improving our funding profile and increasing profitability. OnDeck enters 2019 with considerable momentum fueled by our US lending franchise and is well-positioned to drive additional shareholder value through our high-growth strategic initiatives in 2019 and beyond.”
