Don't worry Funding Circle shareholders, your company is 'close to AEBITDA break-even in H2'!

2020-09-24 09:22:38

A real ramshackle range of regulatory news updates today but I focus here on Funding Circle (FCH). I first wrote about this one in the summer of last year, after I noticed an office of its during a business trip of mine in San Francisco. Suffice to say it was 'big and bold on the second floor of a nice small scale development in the middle (and most expensive part) of the city'. In that article, I highlighted the huge IPO shocker from a 440p listing price to just 135p then. The strategic car crash continued...


Funding Circle – CFO “to step down” (& why the omission of company performance data?)

Its shares already down from a 440p 2018 IPO price to little more than 80p, now a “Directorate Change” announcement from SME loans platform company Funding Circle (FCH) – and the shares further down, towards 78p…


Funding Circle gets so desperate that it asks me if I would like a loan?

Whilst the country is a matter of days from an important political decision, back in the world of markets and companies, I see my old pals at Funding Circle (FCH) are continuing to struggle with a sub one quid share price and a variety of excitable press disclosures including the introduction of a 1.25% exit charge for investors wishing to re-sell their loans in order to turn their savings back into cash.  And naturally it is not as if the ball has been smashed out of the park in terms of returns and related.  


Bizarre Funding Circle and still backing the man on Superdry

I see there is another bizarre story around Funding Circle (FCH) in the Sunday press with the observation that the company is 'diverting some borrowers away from its peer-to-peer lending site to rivals and traditional a way to help borrowers seeking larger unsecured loans above £500,000'. 


Yet another crisis at Funding Circle - this could go all the way to zero!

You all know what I think about the peer-to-peer lending Funding Circle (FCH) which i have written about negatively a couple of times in the last few months, most recently here   Back then I concluded 'you do not need to get involved... unless you are a desperate business which really, really needs finance and the mainstream banks have prudently turned you down already. For the rest of us, grab some popcorn and watch the ongoing post-IPO car crash'.  Broadly speaking this still feels a very, very prudent position to take.  


Funding Circle – where did it all go wrong?

2019-07-02 11:10:56

Many people who work outside the financial services do not believe it when I say that some of the greatest stories can be found in the regulatory news statements by listed companies. And by 'great', of course I mean both the simply awe-inspiring...and the absolutely shocking…
