Founded in 2009, Kabbage, Inc. (“Kabbage” or the “Company”) is a leading global financial services, technology and data platform serving small- and medium-sized businesses (“Merchants”). Kabbage pioneered an automated application, underwriting and servicing platform (the “Kabbage Platform”) that evaluates the creditworthiness of Merchants using its proprietary risk scoring model that leverages traditional underwriting data such as credit bureau reporting and revenue and cash flow analysis, as well as data generated through business checking accounts and other data sources, including online accounting software, payment processing platforms, e-commerce websites, and shipping and delivery companies to provide automated, online access to business loans (the “SMB Loans”). Kabbage also provides working capital to Merchants by purchasing a specified amount of a Merchant’s future receivables known as merchant cash advances (“MCAs”). The transaction allows up to 10% MCA receivables. The Kabbage small business loan program (the “Kabbage Program”) is offered via the Kabbage Platform.
