Eleving Group (formerly Mogo Finance Group) reports its unaudited 6-month results for 2021, showing a sturdy performance in the first half of the year. The record-high results were driven by consistent financial performance, earning € 71.8 million in revenues, and the highest-ever consolidated loan issuance volume. In several markets such as Romania and Kenya, the company demonstrated solid growth by achieving record quarterly loan issuances.
The used car market became increasingly active during the pandemic. The group’s industry know-how allowed the company to swiftly react to the growing demand for safer and more cost-efficient personal mobility. This was driving an increase of an average loan size by 4% and an increase of the number of vehicle loan applications by nearly 13% in comparison with the previous quarter.
The record profitability is characterized by a record-high half-year EBITDA of € 31.1 million that is a 107% increase in comparison with last year’s respective period and product portfolio of € 211.5 million with a quarterly increase of € 11.3 million. Additionally, net profit after forex effect reached € 7.8 million during the first six months of 2021 (compared with a € 3.8 million loss in the first half of 2020).
