Highlights from the note include:
Mr. Amazing Loans updates corporate name, ticker to MRAL
On April 30, 2018, IEG Holdings announced that it had undergone a corporate name change to Mr. Amazing Loans Corporation. The new corporate name change appears to be better aligned and more easily recognizable with its core business of providing direct to consumer loans under the same brand. Additionally, to reflect the updated corporate name, the company announced a new ticker symbol, OTCQB: MRAL.
MRAL announces 1Q18 results, to cut costs
On April 23, 2018, MRAL filed its 1Q18 10-Q with the SEC for the period ending March 31, 2018. Revenues were $0.39mn versus $0.47mn in 1Q17, representing an annual decline of 15.6%. Net Losses were ($1.04mn), and EPS came in at ($0.06) per share, as the company faced higher SG&A and public company expenses than the prior year period. Going forward, CEO Paul Mathieson stated that he would reduce expenses -- including a 50% reduction to his consulting contract with the company. MRAL expects to raise capital to support growth plans in the second half of the year and 2019.
MRAL announces $20mn debt facility for subsidiary
On June 8, 2018, MRAL announced that its wholly owned blockchain subsidiary MRAL Blockchain LLC obtained a 5-year, $20mn debt facility from Singapore-incorporated company, Investment Evolution Coin Ltd.("IEC Ltd"). This is a sizeable amount relative to the sub-$10mn market capitalization of MRAL, and we are intrigued as to how this capital might be deployed to create value.
According to the release, IEC Ltd is currently 100% owned by certain Mr. Amazing Loans' stockholders, including Paul Mathieson, Mr. Amazing Loans' President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and sole director who is IEC Ltd's majority stockholder. The announcement also stated that, in connection with the debt facility, the IEC Ltd. also purchased 360,000 shares of MRAL Series H preferred stock, providing funding for MRAL.
No change to price target
Our price target is unchanged at this time for MRAL. We will look to review the target when there is more clarity on MRAL loan volume growth and the impact of the new loan facility at the wholly-owned subsidiary, MRAL Blockchain LLC. MRAL is a high-risk, high potential reward company in the consumer finance sector, which will likely need to raise additional capital to implement its growth plans.
