Review of

the company

In 2020 H1, the company has remained a stable leader, holding over 54% of the P2P consumer lending market in Lithuania. The NEO Finance platform is the largest according to all possible indicators: amount of loans issued since the start of operations, amount of loans issued during the last year, and the amount of a loan portfolio.

During the first half of 2020, the entire team has continued working towards making the company profitable. A considerable attention has been dedicated towards software development, decreasing marketing costs, increasing the income, developing new products and services, providing investors with more data and statistics. Also, a considerable effort is being directed towards development of the Payment initiation service (PIS).

The strategic approach of the Board is based of ensuring long-term and sustainable operations, as opposed to maximizing short-term profits. Therefore, the company pays special attention to ensure compliance with the relevant laws as well as improving them by proposing the amendments to responsible institutions. In addition, a special attention is paid to loan risk management and debt recovery results, as it actually has a direct impact on investment return. Finally, the company is constantly performing stress-tests, i.e. simulating company's operations in the situation of economic downturn.

At the beginning of 2019 the management team confirmed ambitious goals and company is working towards them:

  • Increase the consumer loans issued via platform to EUR 5 MM per month.
  • Increase the revenues from the Payment Initiation Service to

EUR 3 MM per year.

Increase the number of active investors to 25,000.

Company board and governance

Evaldas Remeikis and Deividas Tumas are graduates of Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance board member programme, with a qualification of professional board member. Also, in aspiration of applying good corporate governance practices, Evaldas Remeikis has graduated from Chairman of the Board training in Stockholm, Sweden.

Most of the decisions in the company are made by the board, which has regular meetings once a month. When needed, special meetings are organized. The meetings are organized, held, and documented according to the good corporate governance principles.

By resolution of shareholders, the Supervisory board was abolished due to changes in laws, that no longer require Electronic Money Institution to have this collegial body. As of January 21, 2020, all members of the Supervisory board informally advise the Company's management and Board.

Capital

  • Until 2020 H1, EUR 4.18 M has been invested in the company via capital increase and share premiums.
  • During 2020 H1 no addition capital increases were done.
  • In the end of 2020 H1, company's authorized capital was EUR 1.62 M.

As an e-money institution, since 2017, NEO Finance, AB, must comply with the requirement of minimum private capital of EUR 350 K and, if the capital decreases below that, shareholders shall make certain decisions so that it is brought back to EUR 350 K. Based on this ruling, sufficiency of the capital of e-money institution is calculated by subtracting intangible assets and deferred tax asset from the equity capital. At 2020 H1 end, equity capital in company's balance sheet was equal to EUR 943 K. However, according to the requirements approved by the Bank of Lithuania the supervisory capital was equal to EUR 286 K and company has not complied with this ruling at the end of 2020 H1.

MIP e-shop makes payment faster, more convenient and cheaper. The provision of payment initiation service in Lithuania is regulated by the Payment Law, which implements the provisions of Directive 2015/2366 of the European Parliament and of the Council on payment services

NEO Finance is a licensed payment initiation service providerwhich provides this service using the Neopay brand trademark.

The fact worth mentioning is that the majority of NEO Finance's P2P lending related income is distributed throughout the loan period, and these revenues are received only when the borrower actually makes the monthly installment. The company has chosen such income collection method due to requirements of Law on Consumer Credit, as well as aspiration to be as much motivated to mediate and return the necessary

interest to investors as possible. As the company collects its intermediary fee the way described above, company's income is moved towards future periods, therefore, the method of counting company's income is very different from that of competitors, and is not comparable. In June 2018,

changes in Law on Consumer Credit allowing P2P platform operators to charge borrowers with 50% of the platform fee right away, have come into force. Despite that, NEO Finance will keep on collecting only the intermediary fee from actual monthly installments, which will ensure staying the most attractive P2P platform for borrowers, as well as keeping investors' trust

Debt recovery

When the borrower is late to pay at least 1 payment, they are notified via e-mail and SMS messages. After 32 overdue days , the debt is registered in UAB "Creditinfo Lietuva" database, and on the 41st day, recovery is transferred to debt recovery agency.

During 2020 H1, recovered amount summed up to EUR 1165 K. 37% of the debts have been recovered via pre-trialmethod. Bailiffs have recovered 43%, and trial - 20% of the debts.

Debt recovery is performed by UAB Legal Balance. We are satisfied with cooperation results, and hope that further on, we will considerably exceed the Lithuanian rates of recovering delinquent consumer credits. The company therefore offers buy-back service, where the investor has an option to receive 50- 80% of face value of the investment without waiting for the recovery process.

During 2020 H1, amount paid to investors for claim rights was equal to EUR 112 K. During the same period last year, the company paid EUR 130 K to investors for claim rights.
