Strong Performance in Lending and Technology Platforms Drives SoFi’s Profitability

SoFi Technologies Achieves First Profitable Quarter Ever

SoFi Technologies (SOFI) has reported its first profitable quarter, with net revenue increasing by 35% from the previous year to $615 million. This milestone comes as the company’s net income increased to $48 million from a net loss of $40 million last year. In addition to its strong earnings, SoFi has provided optimistic medium-term growth expectations, including a projection of GAAP earnings per share of $0.55-$0.80 in 2026. This exceeds previous projections and highlights the company’s positive outlook.

The revenue growth was mainly driven by higher net interest income, which increased by 87% from the previous year to $390 million. This growth was attributed to SoFi’s expanding loan book and its success in growing its deposit base, which allows the firm to fund its loan book while reducing its reliance on more expensive external debt.

Furthermore, SoFi’s Technology platform has shown signs of reacceleration in growth, with revenue from the segment increasing 13% from the previous year. This is a significant improvement from the 6% annual rate reported in the last quarter.

Historic Background:
SoFi, also known as Social Finance, was founded in 2011 as an online personal finance company. Since its inception, the company has aimed to provide various financial products and services to its customers, including student loan refinancing, personal loans, and investing opportunities. Over the years, SoFi has expanded its offerings to include a wide range of financial products, and its recent achievement of profitability marks a significant milestone in its journey.

In conclusion, despite the impressive results, there are no plans to alter the company’s fair value estimate. SoFi’s continued growth and expansion of its product offerings position it as a strong contender in the financial services industry.
