IEG Holdings Corporation Announces Record 2016 Full Year Revenue and Q1 2017 Earnings and Dividend Guidance

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - March 08, 2017) - IEG Holdings Corporation (OTCQB: IEGH) announced today that its full year revenue increased 16.3% from $1,835,165 in 2015 to $2,135,046 in 2016, driven by continued strong loan volume growth. Since January 2016, cumulative loan volume has increased by 29.5% from $10,989,023 to $14,234,023 as of February 28, 2017.

First Quarter 2017 Earnings and Dividend Guidance

IEG Holdings now expects to incur a net loss and net operating cash flow negative position due to non-recurring, non-operational expenses related to the tender offer to purchase shares of OneMain Holdings Inc. ("OneMain") common stock. As previously reported, IEG Holdings announced a tender offer to purchase up to all outstanding shares of OneMain's common stock; provided, however, that IEG Holdings is willing to accept any number of shares of OneMain common stock, even if such shares, in the aggregate, constitute less than a majority of OneMain's outstanding common stock. IEG Holdings is offering to exchange for each outstanding share of common stock of OneMain two shares of IEG Holdings' common stock. The tender offer will expire at 5 p.m., Eastern time, on March 27, 2017.

However, in light of the non-recurring nature of these additional expenses and non-operational costs, IEG Holdings reiterates its expectation to pay its inaugural dividend in May 2017, after release of Q1 2017 results, and to pay ongoing quarterly dividends.
