Proceeds drawn from the revolving line of credit facility by NextBank will be used to fund loans secured by domestic US commercial real estate properties in accordance with underwriting guidelines established by NextBank. These loans will generate interest spread and fee income, increasing the bank’s loan portfolio, and are expected to favorably impact revenues and cashflows at the bank.
Nithinan Boonyawattanapisut, NextPlay’s Principal Executive Officer, added: “We are appreciative that Savi Capital Partners selected NextBank as a partner and extended the ability of the bank to greatly expand and diversify its loan portfolio. NextBank is seeing considerable growth in its deposit portfolio, and I expect that to accelerate in terms of absolute dollars. The Bank has a backlog of corporate depositors in the ‘Know Your Customer’ and ‘Anti-Money Laundering’ Compliance Review process for onboarding. This $200 million line of credit, combined with NextBank’s growth in customer deposits, should have a material impact on the bank’s yielding asset portfolio over the next three quarters. We are targeting between US $100 million and $150 million in deposits and US $200 million in credit availability by the end of the company’s fiscal 4Q, which, combined, should result in a profitable operation overall. This growth and outlook are attracting investors and other strategic partners to NextPlay’s fintech division, and we are actively vetting partners and investors.
“Additionally, we plan to deploy NextBank’s B to C service and begin global marketing for that in the spring of 2023.
“I would also like to recognize our NextFintech division executive team navigating a way to grow NextPlay’s portfolio during this difficult market, better vectoring the company to achieve profitability.”
