creditshelf AG acquires lending platform Main Funders and agrees on cooperation with Commerzbank AG

Frankfurt am Main, 30 April 2019 - creditshelf Aktiengesellschaft (WKN A2LQUA, ISIN DE000A2LQUA5, stock exchange symbol CSQ) acquires the peer-to-peer lending platform Main Funders from Commerzbank AG. The platform concept of Main Funders fits in with creditshelf"s strategy of bringing potential investors together with medium-sized companies.

In this context, creditshelf and Commerzbank have entered into a fundamental lending cooperation agreement. Commerzbank will refer select loan requests to creditshelf that have so far met the profile of Main Funders.

With the potential borrower"s authorisation, creditshelf contacts the interested borrower and decides ‒ subject to the outcome of its review process ‒ whether the respective loan project will be placed on its platform. If a loan project is successfully arranged, Commerzbank in return receives a one-off commission from creditshelf. In 2019, the first year of the agreement, an executed loan volume in the higher double-digit million range is targeted.

Cooperations with banks are an important pillar of creditshelf"s growth strategy, which targets a medium-term executed loan volume of EUR 500 million per annum.
