Update on Funding Circle’s next stage of growth
This is an advertisement and not a prospectus. Potential investors should not apply for or buy any shares in Funding Circle Holdings Limited (to be renamed Funding Circle Holdings plc) (the “Company”) except on the basis of information contained in a prospectus that may be published by the Company and which, if published, will be made available at corporate.fundingcircle.com.
Important Funding Circle update
Since Funding Circle launched 8 years ago, investors on our platform have lent more than £5 billion to over 50,000 businesses globally, earning attractive returns whilst supporting economic growth and job creation across the UK, US, Germany and the Netherlands.
Today we have announced the next stage of our growth and we’re delighted to confirm that we are considering proceeding with an initial public offering (IPO). This means Funding Circle’s ownership structure would change from a private company to a publicly listed company.
What this means for you
Should we decide to proceed with an IPO, there will be no impact on your existing relationship with Funding Circle. Additionally, we anticipate that you will have the opportunity to apply to participate in the IPO and become a shareholder in Funding Circle via an intermediaries offer.
Further information on this possible offer and the potential intermediaries involved will be available in due course. We anticipate any potential intermediaries offer to open in the coming weeks if the IPO proceeds. Once open there will only be a limited time in which to apply. Before making any investment decision you should speak with your own stockbroker or financial advisor.
We believe these developments highlight an exciting future for Funding Circle. Thank you for your continued support and if you have any questions about your experience at Funding Circle, please get in touch.
