Two Year Extension of Existing and Largest BaaS Partnership
New Bank Partnership with First Carolina Bank for Higher Education Business
New Agreement with Customers Bank for Existing and Largest BaaS Partnership
RADNOR, PA / ACCESSWIRE / March 22, 2023 / BM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American:BMTX), one of the largest digital banking platforms and Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) providers, today announced that the Company has executed a new Deposit Processing Services Agreement (DPSA) with First Carolina Bank for the Higher Education business and a new DPSA with Customers Bank for our existing and largest BaaS partnership deposits. Both bank partnership agreements include variable rate servicing fees which will result in superior economics for BMTX in the current interest rate environment.
"We are excited to kick-off 2023 with these key agreements in place. The new variable rate pricing structure of these agreements significantly improves our revenue outlook in 2023, and adding a new Durbin-exempt partner bank for the Higher Education business provides a further benefit to interchange revenues," said Luvleen Sidhu, Chair, CEO, and Founder of BMTX. Sidhu further added, "we selected First Carolina Bank due in large part to its strong regulatory capital, ample liquidity, clean credit, respected management team, and solid profitability."
At the current effective federal funds rate, the collective benefit of the variable rate servicing fee structure would result in a margin increase of more than 100 basis points on average serviced deposits from the prior fixed rate servicing fee structure.
The Company will host a conference call and webcast on Monday, March 27, 2023, at 5:00 pm ET to discuss fourth quarter and full year 2022 results and this announcement. The conference call will be webcast live from BMTX's investor relations website. A replay will be available following the call.
