小额融资平台OnDeck计划首次公开募股

据报道,小额信贷平台OnDeck正在筹备首次公开募股,预估值可能超过十亿美元,这将再一次证明替代性金融业的迅速发展,同时也标志着小企业主的另类融资日益成为主流。

这笔交易预计将使OnDeck获得2亿美元,公司市值达到15亿。在今年年底前,会有摩根大通、摩根士丹利和德意志银行共同参与承销。

替代性金融公司通过网上平台进行评估和承销小额资金贷款。自金融危机后,银行因担心冒险放弃了这一领域,但小额信贷业务始终不乏市场关注,并日益发展壮大。

个人贷款业务里最大的P2P借贷公司LendingClub,也宣布计划在今年年底上市,预计筹集5亿美元,而公司市值预计可能在40亿美元。LendingClub最近同样也开始涉足商业贷款。

OnDeck的其他竞争对手还包括Biz2Credit,Kabbage,Lendio等等。这种替代性融资企业的共同点是一种非传统的承销方式——向贷款人提供企业业主的活期账户余额情况或者支付历史信息,而不是像银行那样使用传统的FICO信用评分系统。

替代性金融贷款人认为这种方法能够使决策更加迅速准确。但这样的贷款往往也可能更加昂贵; 还款期限往往以日计算或有40%以上的高周期性的利率。

OnDeck表示,他们分析了2000多个数据点,其中包括实时的现金流和客户评论,以便在数分钟内就做出融资决定。

2012年,在Inc评比出的500家的企业中,OnDeck名列302。当时,该公司报告营收为2000万美元,并有超过1200%的复合年增长率。自首席执行官Noah Breslow2006年成立公司以来,这家纽约公司已经获得1.8亿美元风险投资,投资人包括谷歌风险投资公司、PayPal联合创始人Peter Thiel、前美国运通公司首席执行官James Robinson III。

OnDeck并对此事发表评论,但声称已在过去7年里为小企业主提供了超过十亿美元的融资。

作为OnDeck在纽约的竞争对手,Ameri Merchant也为小企业主提供了在线的商户现金预付款和营运资金贷款,其首席执行官David Goldin认为OnDeck此举这无疑是业界的一个大好消息。

"这个行业正在扩张,而OnDeck上市表明,华尔街现在越来越重视这个行业了"Goldin说。

The small-business lender is reportedly preparing for an IPO, which could value it at more than $1 billion and help validate the exploding alternative finance industry.

In a sign that alternative finance for small business owners is increasingly going mainstream, OnDeck Capital is reportedly readying for an initial public offering.

News of the deal, which is expected to fetch $200 million for OnDeck and value the company at $1.5 billion, was reported in the Wall Street Journal Friday. Underwriters for the offering, which will reportedly occur before the end of the year, include JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, and Deustche Bank.

The alternative finance company uses an online platform to assess and underwrite small businesses seeking capital. It's part of an increasingly crowded field of companies that have leapt into small business financing since the great recession, at a time when banks largely abandoned the territory for fear of risk.

Lending Club, the biggest peer-to-peer lending company for individual borrowers, also announced plans to go public later this year. It expects to raise $500 million in a deal that could value the company at $4 billion. Lending Club has similarly gotten into business loans recently.

OnDeck's other competitors include Biz2Credit, Kabbage, and Lendio, among a host of others. Such alternative finance business have something common: their non-traditional methods of underwriting, which can include assessing business owners' daily checking account balances or payment histories to vendors, rather than the traditional FICO credit scores that banks use.

Alternative lenders claim their methods enable them to make quicker, more accurate decisions. But the loans can be expensive for businesses; repayment terms can often be on a daily basis, or have high periodic interest rates of 40 percent or more.

OnDeck says it analyzes more than 2000 data points, which could include real time cash flow and customer reviews, to arrive at a financing decision within minutes.

OnDeck was ranked 302 on the Inc. 500 list for 2012. At the time, it reported revenue of $20 million, and had a compound annual growth rate of more than 1200 percent. Since its founding by chief executive Noah Breslow in 2006, the New York company has raised $180 million in venture backing from sources as varied as Google Ventures, Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel, and former American Express chief executive James Robinson III.

OnDeck, which did not return a request for comment, claims to have provided more than $1 billion in financing to small business owners over the last 7 years.

David Goldin, president and chief executive of AmeriMerchant, a competing company in New York, which provides merchant cash advances and working capital loans to small business owners online, cheered the news as validation of the industry.

"This industry is expanding, and the OnDeck IPO shows that Wall Street is now taking this industry seriously," Goldin says.
