Tallinn, Estonia, 29 November 2019. IuteCredit Europe ("ICE"), a leading European personal finance group, reported today unaudited results for 9M/2019.



"IuteCredit Group continues on its double trajectory of growth and expansion while remaining profitable at the same time. The 9-months results are satisfactory, in particular, in a market environment that is both extremely competitive and strictly regulated. We are well equipped also to cope with headwinds.



Our total pool of customers grows fast, while IuteCredit customers still repay very well. It is particularly important to note that we have good cashflow results with customers who fall into delay or even default. Cashflow remains the most important performance indicator in our business and IuteCredit is very strong on cashflow.



For the full year 2019, we expect to exceed our own targets with more than 150 million EUR in loans issued to over 200.000 customers. This corresponds to a net loan portfolio close to EUR 100 million. However, unexpectedly higher regulatory costs and lower APRs required adjustments to our targets. Considering that IuteCredit is also shouldering the costs for two start-ups in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Bulgaria, the performance is really satisfying", said Tarmo Sild, Group CEO of IuteCredit.



Earnings Call:



CEO Tarmo Sild and CFO Kristel Kurvits will comment on the unaudited results by means of a presentation. The call will be held in English.
