* Improvement in key lead indicators of account acquisition, new loan originations and net lending margin set to drive increases in receivables and revenue growth in current and future financial years through Harmoney’s 3Rs consumer-direct model
* Significant improvement in credit performance with 90+ days arrears at 47 basis points (June 21: 69 bps)
* Achieved breakeven on proforma Cash NPAT on existing loan book demonstrating value from automation and scalability of Harmoney’s 100% consumer-direct model
Commenting on another record quarter, David Stevens, Harmoney’s CEO & Managing Director said: “Harmoney continues to deliver on its growth strategy with another outstanding quarter despite COVID lockdowns in Australia and New Zealand. Harmoney Australia’s loan book is growing at 60% annualised and 15% quarter on quarter, all while delivering an enviable net lending margin of more than 7%.
“Harmoney’s Group loan book, at just over half a billion dollars, is already Cash NPAT breakeven on a proforma basis. The Company’s 100% consumer-direct model and innovative Libra™ lending platform enables over two thirds of loan applications to be completely automated, providing significant operational leverage and driving profitability as our income grows noticeably faster than our cost base.
“Our team, composed largely of data scientists and engineers, continually impress me with their drive to deliver on our purpose of helping more Aussies and Kiwis achieve their life goals through financial products that are friendly, fair and simple to use. Harmoney’s consumer-direct marketing technology is world class and generates approximately 10,000 new customer accounts per month across Australia and New Zealand. This significant consistent level of new customer demand enables our team to be solely focused on developing lending and product enhancements that will broaden our ability to provide financial products to more Aussies and Kiwis with no additional customer acquisition cost.”
