OTCQB | Newsletter



The first quarter of 2017 has been busy for our Corporate Services team. Last week, I attended the Roth Capital Conference and was pleased to meet some of you in person. We’ve also recently launched our OTCQB monthly market updates to provide you with a snapshot of our markets performance, upcoming events and additional highlights.

On our blog, we’ve discussed the importance of Blue Sky Laws. I’m happy to report that our OTCQB Venture Market is now recognized by 18 states for purposes of its “Blue Sky Manual Exemption” for secondary trading. And we officially launched our OTCQB Podcast Series, listen in and subscribe to learn more about your fellow OTCQB companies.

Best, Mary

Meet Your OTCQB Community


Paul Mathieson | CEO, CFO & Founder of IEG Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: IEGH)

Paul Mathieson: IEG Holdings Corporation provides online unsecured consumer loans under the brand name, “Mr. Amazing Loans,” via its website, www.mramazingloans.com, in 19 US states. The Company offers $5,000 and $10,000 loans over a term of five years at 19.9% to 29.9% APR resulting in affordable weekly P&I repayments of $37.03 per week for a standard $5,000 loan.

OTCM: What were your major accomplishments for the last year?

Paul: IEG Holdings Corporation (IEGH) raised $1.4 million via an equity rights offer at $10.00 per share in September 2016. Our cumulative loan volume surpassed $14.2 million in February 2017 and we achieved record yearly revenue of $2,135,046 in 2016, up 16.3% from $1,835,165 in 2015.

OTCM: What differentiates your company and what is your strategy for growth going forward?

Paul: Unlike many others in the personal loan space, IEG Holdings is more than just a broker of loans and is individually licensed in 19 different states in the US with plans to expand to 25 during 2017. Our extensive underwriting process selects high caliber applicants, locking in a recurring revenue stream for up to 5 years.

OTCM: What is your strategy for reaching investors?

Paul: We have undertaken a strategic investor relations program to keep our shareholders informed and to reach new investors. We believe the success of this program, and ultimate creation of shareholder value, is tied to our ability to build trust and to properly articulate the Company’s value proposition, while consistently setting expectations and then meeting or exceeding them. We have implemented an ongoing stock market support system with the general objective of expanding awareness among brokers, analysts, micro-cap portfolio/fund managers, market makers, and select financial publications.

OTCM: What else do you want investors to know about your company?

Paul: IEG Holdings employs an attractive, simple product offering focused on selling $5,000 loans for only $37.03 a week, which includes principal and interest payments. We provide same day acceptance of customer application with strict underwriting standards. The entire application, loan documentation and funding can be completed 100% online and within hours. Management plans to continue to grow new loan volumes utilizing its existing advertising channels. IEG Holdings expects to pay its inaugural dividend in May 2017, after release of Q1 results, and to pay ongoing quarterly dividends.
