Kabbage确认收购借贷数据平台Orchard

近日,在线贷款和许可平台Kabbage正式宣布收购借贷数据平台Orchard,具体收购金额并未对外透露。

本月早些时候市场就出现了有关本次收购的传言,不过双方都拒绝对此发表评论。(相关阅读:《Kabbage计划收购借贷数据平台Orchard》)

本次收购完成后,Orchard的技术平台会融入Kabbage平台,进一步加强Kabbage的数据能力、推动平台产品开发。

Orchard首席执行官兼联合创始人Matt Burton和联合创始人兼首席分析师David Snitkof将在交易结束后加入Kabbage领导团队,一起帮助监督整合和未来创新。

20多名Orchard高级分析、数据科学和工程类员工将入驻Kabbage纽约市办事处。Orchard目前在LinkedIn上列出了48名员工,但未来可能会有更多。

据了解,Orchard此前的主要业务是通过数据可视化、增强和预测建模等数据技术,将机构投资者和替代借款机构进行匹配。

 

Lending and licensing firm Kabbage has confirmed the acquisition of Orchard, subject to standard closing conditions.

Rumours first broke of the acquisition earlier this month, but neither side chose to comment. We now learn that the deal will allow Kabbage to integrate Orchard’s technology platform into its own, driving enhanced data capabilities and furthering its product development.

Orchard’s CEO and co-founder Matt Burton and fellow co-founder and chief analytics officer David Snitkof will join Kabbage’s leadership team when the transaction closes. Together they will help to oversee the integration and future innovation.

More than twenty Orchard employees – predominantly focused on advanced analytics, data science and engineering – will be given jobs at Kabbage’s New York City office. Orchard currently lists 48 employees on LinkedIn, but may have more.

Burton said that the Orchard team is ‘very excited’ to join forces with ‘a true innovator’. It is not clear at this stage how much Kabbage paid for the acquisition.

There are a number of strings to Orchard’s bow, but fundamentally it was a business designed to match institutional investors with alternative lenders via technology and data analytics. Its platform made use of sophisticated visualisation, augmentation and predictive modelling.

The SoftBank-backed Kabbage will seek to apply these tools to enhance its own operations, in pursuit of greater efficiency and effectiveness, better underwriting, and to offer data-driven insights to its business customers.
