Creditas financial results Q3 2020
São Paulo, 18 December 2020.
Today, we announce the results corresponding to the 3rd quarter of 2020.
In Q3-20 our credit portfolio passed the R$1bn mark as we started reacceleration of new loan origination. After a conservative period starting in March, by end of July it was evident that our business model was resilient as we confirmed that our credit portfolio had remained with excellent quality and debt capital markets had stayed wide open for us. With that validation, we returned to our pre-covid growth path and finished Q3-20 at similar levels to Q1-20, with September becoming our record month at R$30.4mn in monthly revenues.
Contribution margin (discounting funding costs, servicing costs, credit provisions and taxes) ended the quarter at 54.0% despite increased leverage of the credit portfolio. Net loss fell 46% from Q3-19 despite increase in SG&A as we gain scale through the expansion of our credit portfolio and the related boost in revenues.
In Q3 we completed 2 securitizations for a total of R$325 mn with Debt Capital Markets showing high resilience for Creditas due to the quality of the credit portfolio. For the first time we issued a FIDC (FIDC Auto II) with AAA local rating by S&P. In the quarter we launched our benefits card to create a more complete Creditas @ work ecosystem, now including 5 products: Payroll loan, Salary advance, Creditas Store, Pension funds and Benefits card.
