Schedules Third Quarter 2023 Earnings Release and Conference Call

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingClub Corporation (NYSE: LC) announced today a cost reduction plan to ensure its ability to navigate through the challenging macroenvironment. The Company also provided preliminary results and scheduled the earnings release and conference call for the third quarter of 2023.

"We continue to proactively implement various measures to navigate the persistent and ongoing macroeconomic headwinds and the resulting pressure in our marketplace, primarily driven by higher interest rates," said Scott Sanborn, LendingClub's Chief Executive Officer. "To that end, we have made the very difficult decision to streamline our workforce. Longer term, we expect marketplace revenue to rebound as we capture the historically large credit card debt refinancing opportunity."

LendingClub is reducing its workforce by approximately 14%, or 172 employees. The Company anticipates that the actions will result in annualized run-rate compensation and benefits savings of approximately $30 to $35 million compared to the second quarter of 2023.
