LOS ANGELES, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Source Financial, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCF) ("Source") is pleased to announce significant progress in its plan to merge its business with Moneytech Limited ("Moneytech"), a leading Australian financial solutions provider, by the execution of a share exchange agreement between Source and Moneytech.
Closing of the share exchange, which is subject to customary closing conditions and acceptance of the terms by the holders of more than 90% of the shares of Moneytech, is expected to occur by June 15, 2013. The merger is designed to create a premier financial services company and will enable Source to prepare to qualify for a higher exchange. Additionally, the merger opens the world's largest financial market to Moneytech's services, so Moneytech can begin to offer its suite of commercial finance products to American businesses, and it will provide Source a new foundation to springboard its product rollout.
"We believe that the addition of Moneytech adds significant value for current Source shareholders, but more importantly, the merger will allow the company to grow organically, by offering products in the consumer and business markets here and abroad. The synergies between these two companies were unmistakable from the start and we're looking forward to working together to introduce our financial platforms to each other's markets and beyond. Moneytech has a solid track record of growth and we're looking to replicate their success here in the US," stated Ted DeFeudis, Source Financial President and CEO.
"We are pleased to announce a closing date for the share exchange. We have worked hard over the last few years to grow our company, and feel entering the US market with Source Financial is the ideal way to continue our success," said Hugh Evans, Moneytech CEO.
Moneytech funded over AUD$ 200 million in loans in 2012 and is forecasting AUD$ 280 million and AUD$ 420 million in funding in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Moneytech currently services more than 5,000 businesses in Australia.
