DelfinGroup reports significant increase in income, profit, and loan portfolio in Q3 2022

DelfinGroup reports that it has maintained stable growth indicators in all segments of its business in the third quarter of 2022. The company has provided the following operational and financial information:

DelfinGroup’s company’s income increased 48% year-on-year in Q3, reaching €9.6m. In addition, profit before taxes rose 49%, to €1.8m, while the loan portfolio grew 39% since the beginning of the year, reaching €59.7m.

DelfinGroup’s total income in the first nine months of this year was €25.7m, an increase of 39% compared to the same period of 2021, while profit before taxes for the same period reached €5.4m, an increase of 55% year-on-year.

“It was another successful quarter for the company as we met the set growth indicators. Furthermore, for DelfinGroup shareholders, the company's rapid expansion means stable returns. The stable growth of the company makes it possible for us to offer our clients more and more modern services. As an example, in late summer, we opened the updated Banknote online shop at, which is currently the biggest circular economy online shop selling verified pre-owned, slightly pre-owned, and new goods in Latvia. The online shop update has also brought the first positive results: in the third quarter, the sale of goods already reached €3.3m, a 43% increase compared to the third quarter of last year.

“In the first nine months of this year, we issued €57.7m in loans, representing a 65% year-on-year increase. Also, in the third quarter of this year, we issued €22.2m worth of loans, which is 54% more than last year's third quarter. These stable growth indicators demonstrate that the services offered by DelfinGroup – both in the personal loans and circular economy segments – enjoy demand across the entirety of the economic cycle, be it periods of high uncertainty and recession or those of expansion and growth. Therefore, we are confident that, even today, with a lot of uncertainty in the international financial markets, we can provide our shareholders with stable and regular returns through dividends.”

Chairman of the DelfinGroup’s Management Board Didzis Ādmīdiņš

In light of this year’s results, the company has updated its financial goals until 2024, raising the forecast for 2024 and setting new goals for 2023.
