It has been reported that Kabbage is interested in acquiring OnDeck Capital. S&P Global recently published an analysis of a potential deal. This week Kabbage announced a new originations milestone of $3 billion since inception. We take a closer look at the originations and pro forma estimates of the two companies provided by S&P Global.
OnDeck’s annual originations have increased from approximately $15.9 million in 2008 to $2.40 billion in 2016. Estimates from S&P Global show combined loan originations for the two firms of $3.82 billion for 2016. In addition to synergies from similar balance sheet and securitization funding sources, S&P Global also notes the increased value Kabbage could likely bring to OnDeck’s line of credit product. Pro forma estimates put line of credit originations at approximately 50% for the combined entities. Kabbage has considerable expertise in small business line of credit lending and it’s a product OnDeck launched in 2013 and has recently been focused on. Source
