The following highlights were excerpted from the news release:
“2017 was a transformative year for OnDeck, marked by our strategic decision to strengthen our financial profile and accelerate our path to profitability,” said Noah Breslow, OnDeck’s CEO. “In the fourth quarter, we delivered on this objective, achieving over $5 million of GAAP profit, $41 million better than 2016’s fourth quarter results. In addition to this significant profit growth, we grew origination volume, controlled expenses and increased our effective interest yield to its highest levels since 2015. Credit performance continued improving in the fourth quarter while our provision rate, 15+ day delinquency ratio and net charge-off rate all achieved their lowest quarterly levels of 2017.”
Breslow added, “Looking ahead to 2018, we expect to drive double digit loan growth due to our strong customer demand, disciplined risk management and focus on scaling responsibly. With improved credit performance and loan yields, our realigned cost structure and a secure funding base, we are well-positioned to build on our success and continue margin expansion.”
