Funding Circle公布上市计划细节

近日,在确认将于伦敦证交所公开上市后,P2P贷款平台Funding Circle又公布了其他的相关细节。

来自P2P Finance News的消息显示,公开上市是Funding Circle充分利用当下市场条件的一个重要战略。

该公司表示,本次计划通过上市筹集超过3.9亿美元。Funding Circle希望借助这笔资金提高其品牌知名度,展示透明成熟的商业模式,培养员工,重点关注关键管理职位,并在其平台上为借款人引进额外的融资解决方案。

据报道,丹麦亿万富翁Anders Holch Povlsen计划通过其投资工具Heartland A / S收购Funding Circle 10%的股票,前提是该公司的估值不超过21.5亿美元。

Funding Circle首席执行官Samir Desai在一份声明中也表示,本次上市将标志着该公司发展的又一个新阶段。

此前CNBC报道称,美国银行美林、高盛、摩根士丹利和Numis证券将担任本次上市的账簿管理人。

放眼全球,其实也有不少替代贷款平台也在积极筹划公开上市,其中最引人注目应该就是澳大利亚的Prospa。不过,由于澳大利亚监管机构对该公司与小企业借款人的合同提出了批评,Prospa只得暂停了上市计划。

Days after confirming plans for an Initial Public Offering on the London Stock Exchange, alternative lending firm Funding Circle has released new details about its goals for the float and market conditions that make it possible.

According to P2P Finance News reports on Monday (Sept. 10), Funding Circle said the IPO plans are part of its strategy to take advantage of current market conditions.

“The directors believe that this is an appropriate time to bring the group to the public market, reflecting the robust foundations established for future growth,” the company said in a statement.

The firm said is plans to raise more than $390 million by going public. With those funds, Funding Circle aims to boost its brand awareness, demonstrate its business model of transparency and maturity, grow its staff with a focus on key management positions, and introduce additional financing solutions for borrowers on its platform.

According to reports, Danish billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen plans to acquire 10 percent of Funding Circle shares via his investment vehicle Heartland A/S so long as the company’s valuation does not surpass $2.15 billion.

“In the last couple of years, Funding Circle has channeled more capital into small- and medium-sized enterprises than all the big banks put together,” said Growth Street Chief Executive Greg Carter, according to the publication. “This shows the potential of new funding models, but I think it should also serve as a wake-up call to the big banks who have drawn back from SME lending since the financial crisis.”

At the time of the IPO announcement, Funding Circle CEO Samir Desai said in a statement that the float “is the start of the next stage” in the company’s trajectory.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Numis Securities will serve as bookrunners, previous CNBC reports said.

Elsewhere, other alternative lending platforms have eyed IPO plans. One of the most notable is Australia’s Prospa, which planned to go public but halted the initiative after regulators raised criticism against the company’s contracts with small business borrowers, which Prospa ultimately changed.
