Amigo Holdings PLC is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to increase the size of its securitisation facility (the "Facility"), which will bring total commitments under the Facility to £300 million. The increase of the Facility is due to complete on 6 June 2019.  The Company intends to use drawdowns from the Facility for general corporate purposes and the potential repayment of indebtedness, including its outstanding bonds, from time to time.  The Facility, which has a minimum three-year term and amortises thereafter, will have a funding rate c. 500 bps below the current cost of the Company's senior secured notes and will, in time, lower Amigo's overall average cost of capital.

About Amigo Loans

Amigo Holdings PLC ("Amigo" or the "Company") is listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange (ticker: AMGO). Amigo is the leading provider of guarantor loans in the UK and offers access to mid-cost credit to those who are unable to borrow from traditional lenders due to their credit histories.


The guarantor loan concept introduces a second individual to the lending relationship, typically a family member or friend with a stronger credit profile than the borrower. This individual acts as guarantor, undertaking to make loan payments if the borrower does not.


Amigo was founded in 2005 and has grown to become the UK's largest provider of guarantor loans, with approximately 88% UK product share as of 31 March 2018. In the process, Amigo's guarantor loan product has allowed borrowers to rebuild their credit scores and improve their ability to access credit from mainstream financial service providers in the future.


Amigo is a mid-cost credit provider with one simple and transparent product - a guarantor loan at an APR of 49.9%, with no fees, early redemption penalties or any other charges.


Amigo Loans Ltd and Amigo Management Services Ltd are authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
