Review of Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2015

Originations grew to $419 million during the second quarter of 2015, up 69% from the comparable prior year period. Originations growth primarily reflected strength in our Direct and Strategic Partner distribution channels which grew 112% over the prior year period.

Gross revenue increased to $63.3 million during the second quarter of 2015, up 78% from the comparable prior year period. The increase in gross revenue was primarily due to growth in outstanding loan balances as well as increased volume sold through the OnDeck Marketplace during the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior year period. The effective interest yield for the second quarter of 2015 was 37.6%, down from 41.2% in the comparable prior year period, reflecting the continued mix shift to lower cost distribution channels, an increase in average term loan length over the period, and OnDeck’s continuing efforts to lower pricing and origination fees for customers as it achieves cost efficiencies. Reflecting these trends, the average APR of loans originated in the second quarter was 46.5%, a decline from 56.7% in the prior year period.

Net revenue increased to $43.0 million during the second quarter of 2015, up 131% from the comparable prior year period. Net revenue margin increased to 67.9% during the second quarter of 2015 from 52.5% in the prior year period, principally due to a lower Cost of Funds Rate and a lower Provision Rate.

The Cost of Funds Rate during the second quarter of 2015 declined to 5.0% of Average Funding Debt Outstanding, down from 6.4% in the comparable prior year period. The improvement was primarily the result of the company’s increasing access to lower cost funding sources.

Provision for loan losses during the second quarter of 2015 increased to $15.5 million, up from $13.1 million during the year ago period. The Provision Rate in the second quarter of 2015 was 5.3% compared to 5.8% in the comparable prior year period. The decline in the Provision Rate was primarily the result of a release of loan loss reserves, mainly reflecting the sale of loans originated prior to the second quarter that were previously designated as loans held for investment.

Operating expenses were $38.2 million during the second quarter of 2015, up 119% over the comparable prior year period as OnDeck increased investment in brand awareness and marketing, expanded its technology and analytics teams to support growth and incurred additional general and administrative expenses related to operating as a public company. Operating expense as a percent of gross revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was 60.3%, up from 49.1% during the year ago period, reflecting these investments.

Adjusted EBITDA was $8.7 million in the quarter, an improvement from $2.5 million in the comparable prior year period.

Adjusted Net Income improved to $7.3 million, or $0.11 per basic share and $0.10 per diluted share, for the quarter versus $1.5 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted share, in the comparable prior year period.

OnDeck had GAAP net income attributable to On Deck Capital, Inc. common stockholders of $5.0 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter which compares to GAAP net loss attributable to On Deck Capital, Inc. common stockholders of $4.7 million, or $0.88 per basic and diluted share, in the comparable prior year period.
