Our group of companies was established in 2022, and we are thrilled to announce that we achieved a significant milestone by reaching a consolidated EBITDA break-even point in the first quarter of 2023. This remarkable accomplishment was followed by the first profitable quarter of our Polish loan originator, Ekspres Pozyczka. During this period, Hive Finance’s consolidated revenue soared to 568,000 EUR, a testament to our dedication and hard work. Our EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) surged to 36,500 EUR, further showcasing our business strategies and operational management effectiveness. “These accomplishments demonstrate the group’s ability to navigate challenges effectively and capitalise on growth opportunities,”- says the CEO of Hive Finance, Ričardas Vandzinskas.

At Hive Finance Group, we aim to deliver profitable investment opportunities to our valued clients, along with the highest standard of service and cutting-edge investment tools.

Although the first investment was made just in August last year, our daughter company, hive5, has demonstrated professionalism and an unwavering commitment to all investors. “Despite the past year’s challenges, including geopolitical conflicts, inflation, and rising interest rates, hive5 has remained steadfast in its commitment to providing liquidity and stability to the financial market. We are delighted to announce that since our launch in 2022, we have become the fastest-growing marketplace for investing in loans, attracting diverse clients from the biggest European countries and reputable corporations,” says Ričardas Vandzinskas, CEO of hive5. As of the conclusion of 2022, the platform’s cumulative portfolio stood at almost 2 million EUR, a testament to its rapid growth and widespread acceptance in the market. Since the beginning of 2023, the number of our investors has doubled, and the average deposit has also grown (from 400+ investors at the end of 2023 to 700+ investors at the end of March). We are delighted that increasingly high-net-worth investors trust our platform to invest big amounts of money. In the first three months of 2023, the platform experienced an astonishing surge, achieving a cumulative portfolio of 5,229,000 EUR. However, it is just the beginning of the journey.

Ekspres Pozyczka

The consumer loan provider in Poland has seamlessly merged finance and technology expertise to create a mobile-friendly micro-lending organisation. Ekspres Pozyczka has implemented accurate risk management practices, which led to successfully issuing loans and receiving payments.

Within its first year of operations, Ekspres Pozyczka accomplished several remarkable milestones. It achieved 1 807 000 EUR of granted loans, processed 43 917 loan applications, and approved 4 869 loans. This initial success reflects the strong market demand and the organisation’s ability to cater to borrowers’ needs effectively.

Additionally, some inspiring news arrived in March 2023. “I am delighted to announce that in March 2023, Ekspres Pozyczka completed an extensive procedure, including the presentation of our business plan, team, activities, KYC, AML, and other necessary business procedures when our company obtained a MIP (Small Payment Institution) license under KNF. Now we eagerly await regulatory authorities’ feedback to proceed with the planned launch of credit cards,” says Wojciech Homan, the CEO of Ekspres Pozyczka.

Notably, Ekspres Pozyczka achieved an impressive milestone in January, reaching the break-even point and generating profits. This accomplishment is particularly remarkable, considering that loan issuance had started just six months ago. The rapid transformation into a profitable company proves that the chosen business strategy leads to successful development and growth.
