IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH) Aims to be Key Player in the Cryptocurrency/Blockchain Sector

IEG Holdings plans to create its own gold metal-backed cryptocurrency for consumer loans and consumer loan repayments
The company’s loans offer interest rates that are significantly lower than payday lenders
Adoption of blockchain technology offers substantial growth potential
On January 10, 2018, consumer loan provider IEG Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: IEGH) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Investment Evolution Crypto, LLC, is negotiating to purchase a gold project with prospecting licenses and known gold resources. The corporation plans to use a gold resource for the creation of its own gold metal-backed cryptocurrency, with a view to offering loans and accepting loan repayments through blockchain technology. Investment Evolution Crypto has not started mineral operations as yet, but it is currently developing plans to explore these crypto/blockchain opportunities. These efforts will include an evaluation of the legalities and associated economic risks.

Unlike other digital currencies like bitcoin, ether, Ripple and Litecoin, IEG Holdings’ cryptocurrency will be backed by gold and registered with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) as a security.

In a news release, the company’s chairman and CEO, Paul Mathieson, had this to say about the venture: “We believe potentially combining the exciting new blockchain technology with the hard asset of gold metal, expected SEC registration, a leading sophisticated online consumer finance system and individual U.S. state lending licenses is a very exciting proposition. In addition, we believe the future leaders of the crypto/blockchain sector will be companies that are materially compliant with all the existing and future related U.S. government legislation. We aim for IEGH to leverage off its existing fintech business credentials, specifically its extensive experience in online consumer loans, to potentially be a key player in the crypto/blockchain sector.”

IEG Holdings, based in Las Vegas, is a global leader in consumer finance and provides small-sized online personal loans to consumers in the United States. Through its operating subsidiary, Investment Evolution Corporation, the company offers loans under the brand “Mr. Amazing Loans.” Mr. Amazing Loans is a fintech company that specializes in providing loan amounts of $5,000 to $10,000 to consumers through a professional, user-friendly website. IEG Holdings’ loans are unsecured consumer loans with a five-year maturity period and interest rates that are significantly lower than payday lenders.

Through Mr. Amazing Loans, consumer loans receive same-day processing, with no prepayment penalty and no hidden or additional fees. Repayment interest rates are fixed at an annual percentage rate (APR) of 29.9 percent or less for the life of the loan.

According to the Center for Responsible Lending, typical payday lenders charge interest rates ranging from 391 percent to 521 percent APR on loans from $100 to $1,000 (http://nnw.fm/iH8Y8). Terms presented by Mr. Amazing Loans offer low fixed repayments which fit into consumer budgets in an effort to ensure that they strengthen their financial positions. Loans may be approved on the same day of application, and funds are deposited directly into approved consumers’ bank accounts.

IEG Holdings is licensed and/or holds certificates of authority to originate loans in 20 states, including Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. All loans are processed and serviced through the company’s corporate offices in Las Vegas, which eliminates the need for physical offices in each state where the company is licensed to conduct business.

While IEG Holdings’ primary goal is to create its own gold metal-backed cryptocurrency, it will explore the acceptance of established digital currencies, like bitcoin, for consumer loan repayment. With its foray into the rapidly growing blockchain space, 2018 promises to be a year of substantial growth for the company.

IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH) Exploring Creation of Gold Metal-backed Cryptocurrency

  • Negotiations underway to purchase a verified gold project with prospecting licenses
  • IEGH’s cryptocurrency to be backed by gold metal, registered with SEC as a security
  • Volatility of cryptocurrency could potentially be stabilized with precious metal backing

Consumer loan provider IEG Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: IEGH), through wholly owned subsidiary Investment Evolution Crypto, LLC. (“Crypto”), recently announced its intention to create its own gold metal-backed cryptocurrency that could potentially be utilized when offering loans and accepting loan repayments. While Crypto is in the development planning stages and exploring the opportunities presented by crypto/blockchain technologies, the company is already negotiating to purchase a bona fide gold project with established gold metal in the ground and prospecting licenses on record.

In a news release announcing the company’s venture (http://nnw.fm/y3TXj), Paul Mathieson, IEG Holdings chairman and CEO, said, “We believe potentially combining the exciting new blockchain technology with the hard asset of gold metal, expected SEC registration, a leading sophisticated online consumer finance system and individual US state lending licenses is a very exciting proposition… In addition, we believe the future leaders of the crypto/blockchain sector will be companies that are materially compliant with all the existing and future related US government legislation. We aim for IEGH to leverage off its existing fintech business credentials, specifically its extensive experience in online consumer loans, to potentially be a key player in the crypto/blockchain sector.”

This attention to detail and meeting regulatory necessities is the backbone of IEGH’s success as a publicly traded, global leader in consumer finance (http://nnw.fm/08dOt). The company provides small online personal loans of $5,000 to $10,000 in the United States via a state-licensed operating subsidiary, Investment Evolution Corporation, under the consumer brand ‘Mr. Amazing Loans’.

The company originates, processes, and services consumer loans from its centralized Las Vegas headquarters. Loans are offered in 20 states via its online platform and distribution network. IEGH is a licensed direct lender with state licenses and/or certificates of authority to lend in each state and offers all loans within the prevailing statutory rates. The difference for consumers seeking a personal loan under Mr. Amazing Loans’ terms is the ability to repay the loan with low, fixed repayment schedules that fit into their lifestyle and budget. Since inception, the company has provided over $16 million in consumer loans – a cumulative loan volume increase of 192 percent from January 2015 to the end of 2017 (http://nnw.fm/N1DtP).

The coming year includes some exciting business opportunities for IEG Holdings, its subsidiaries and investors. Exploration of the legalities, economic risks and benefits of accepting repayment of customer loans in the form of leading crypto/blockchain currencies such as bitcoin, and also possibly creating and issuing a precious metal-backed cryptocurrency, are seen as prime targets for 2018.

NetworkNewsBreaks – IEG Holdings Corp. (IEGH) Commences Tender Offer for Stake in LendingClub Corporation LC, Highlights “Flawed” Business Model

Jan 08, 2018 (NetworkNewsWire via COMTEX) — Consumer loan provider IEG Holdings Corp. (otcqb:IEGH) this morning announced the commencement of a tender offer for shares of LendingClub Corporation LC, -4.15% by which the company aims to exchange 13 shares of its common stock for each share of LendingClub, up to an aggregate of just over 20 million shares, or 4.99 percent of LendingClub’s outstanding shares. In the news release, IEGH identified what it believes to be a number of major risks and problems with the LendingClub business model and management, including weak underwriting standards, lack of company-owned state lending licenses, unsustainable funding sources, excessive cost structure and poor stock market performance. “We ask LendingClub shareholders to consider whether they wish to move forward with an improved online balance sheet lender model aimed at the future or continue to support what we believe to be a flawed ‘broker’ business model,” Paul Mathieson, chairman and chief executive officer of IEGH, stated in the news release. “Weak underwriting standards, tiny gross margins and large, continuing losses is a recipe for disaster.” IEG Holdings believes that changing LendingClub’s business model to a balance sheet lender model would enable the company to generate significantly higher gross margins, provide significantly higher long duration cash flow from customers, build increased goodwill with customers and enable increased customer refinancing.

IEGH to enter Crypto / Blockchain space with new entity

On December 22, 2017, IEGH Chairman and CEO Paul Mathieson announced that IEGH would enter the cryptocurrency space with the incorporation of a new entity, Investment Evolution Crypto, LLC. The new entity is a 100% wholly-owned subsidiary that will explore the practicality and legality of working with Mr. Amazing Loans to accept payment for customer loans by way of leading Crypto / Blockchain currencies such as Bitcoin, provide the cryptocurrency equivalent of $5,000 and $10,000 loans, and potentially issue its own cryptocurrency. The decision to enter the cryptocurrency space is a rational one for IEGH, which already has an existing business issuing $5,000 and $10,000 consumer loans through online channels, and the company may be able to leverage the growing interest in cryptocurrency to grow its business and raise new capital that could be deployed to grow its loan book.

IEGH releases 3Q17 results

IEGH released 3Q17 results on November 8, 2017, with the filing of its 10-Q with the SEC. During 3Q17 IEGH increased its advertising spend and maintained its quarterly dividend of $0.005 per common share. Revenues, primarily consisting of interest revenue, were $407,370, down from $413,941 in 2Q17 and 557,551 in 3Q16. As of September 30, 2017, IEGH had 1,546 loans outstanding with an unpaid principal balance of $5.92mn. Operating expenses during the quarter declined to $1.48mn from $1.54mn in the year-ago period. The company increased advertising expenses during the quarter, which is expected to help increase loan originations in future periods. IEGH also resumed payments to CEO Paul Mathieson, at an annual salary of $1.2mn, and reduced rent and other operating expenses. We estimate the company is now operating at an annualized expense rate of slightly under $6mn and have assumed the company will manage the business for growth rather than targeting breakeven in the short run. Net loss in 3Q17 was ($1.7mn), including a legal settlement of $0.6mn. For the quarter, EPS came in at a loss of ($0.13) versus ($0.10) in the year-ago period.

Price target moves to $2.00

We are updating our price target for IEGH to $2.00 per share following recent results and a new share count assumption following recent financing activities. IEGH is a high risk, high potential reward company in the consumer finance sector.
