IEG Holdings Corporation (IEGH) Increases Loan Volumes to New Record High and Reiterates Upgraded First Quarter 2017 Earnings/Dividend Guidance

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - December 14, 2016) - IEG Holdings Corporation (OTCQX: IEGH) today released the update below to summarize its current short-term plans and outlook.

Record High Loan Volumes

IEG Holdings Corporation has provided a further $60,000 in new consumer loans to date in December. Since January 2015, cumulative loan volume has increased by 154% from $5,549,023 to $14,079,023 as at December 13, 2016.

First Quarter 2017 Earnings Guidance

Effective January 1, 2017, management will fully implement the significant cuts to consulting fees, salaries/compensation and other operating expenses that were previously discussed in IEGH's November 3, 2016 corporate strategy update.

As a result of these cuts, management now forecasts a small inaugural net profit and a positive operating cash flow position for the three months ending March 31, 2017. IEGH is in the strongest fundamental position in its history of operation in the US and management is very confident in its short, medium and long-term prospects.

Dividend Policy and Capital Management Policy Changes

In light of IEGH's anticipated improvements in financial position, IEGH will change its dividend policy in 2017. IEGH intends to pay a small dividend to shareholders in April 2017 after its first quarter 2017 results are released and expects to pay ongoing regular quarterly dividends.

In addition to the change in dividend policy, IEGH plans to investigate capital management policy changes in the short-term, including potential stock repurchases.

12% Senior Unsecured Notes

IEG Holdings Corporation has launched its private offering of up to $10 million aggregate principal amount of its 12% senior unsecured notes due December 31, 2026 (the "Notes"), on a self-underwritten basis. There can be no assurance that the private offering of Notes will be completed. IEGH intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to increase the size of its loan book.

The Notes will be offered in a private offering exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Notes will not be or have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

This press release is being issued pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act, and is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a sale of, the Notes or any other securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
