Blue Motor Finance receives new equity investment from Cabot Square Capital

Last week, Cabot Square Capital substantially increased its equity investment in Blue Motor Finance (Blue).

This further round of investment demonstrates Cabot’s continued confidence in Blue’s business model and value potential. It follows the announcement in December of a new £300m financing facility with an international bank and provides Blue with sufficient funding to deliver beyond its 2021 plans.

Blue continues to deliver investment opportunities characterised by loan portfolios with relatively low average loan sizes, low term lengths, diversity in originations and customer base, good security and predictable low default rates. Blue’s long term consistency and prudency in credit risk policy has supported this investment and their ongoing performance.

Tiku Patel, CEO of Blue Motor Finance commented: “In these challenging times, we are delighted that Cabot is willing to further invest in our business. Through the crisis, we have shown our ability to treat customers fairly, maintain good operational capability and carefully manage credit risk. Cabot continues to be a great partner for Blue and we are delighted in their confidence as we grow our business for the future.”

Stuart Williams, CFO of Blue Motor Finance commented: “This further investment clearly supports and values our approach in bringing together technology, data and analytics to build a flexible, growing and profitable business platform as we look to the longer term.”
