Legal Matters—The Company is subject to regulatory examination by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (the “CA DFPI”). With respect to its activities in California, the Company received a report of examination in 2020 from the CA DFPI regarding MoneyLion of California, LLC, MoneyLion’s subsidiary, and a follow-up request for information in May 2021. This matter is ongoing, and the Company intends to continue to fully cooperate with the CA DFPI in this matter. In addition, the CA DFPI is currently conducting an industry-wide investigation of companies that provide earned wage access products and services, including Instacash. The Company intends to continue cooperating fully in this investigation and to that end entered into a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) with the CA DFPI on February 23, 2021. The MOU requires the Company to regularly provide certain information to the CA DFPI and adhere to certain best practices regarding Instacash while the CA DFPI continues to investigate. Any potential impacts on the Company’s financial condition or operations relating to these CA DFPI matters are unknown at this time.
The Company is also in the process of responding to Civil Investigative Demands (“CIDs”) or other investigatory requests relating to its provision of consumer financial services from the office of the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the New York Attorney General’s Office, as well as the Colorado Department of Law. The Company is cooperating with each of these state regulators and intends to take any corrective actions required to maintain compliance with applicable state laws. The Company cannot predict the outcome or any potential impact on its financial condition or operations at this time.
We have received and are in the process of responding to CIDs from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (the “CFPB”) relating to the Company’s compliance with the Military Lending Act and its membership model. The Company will continue to provide to the CFPB all of the information and documents required by the CIDs and intends to continue to fully cooperate with the CFPB in this investigation. The investigation is ongoing and any potential impact on the Company’s financial condition or operations are unknown at this time.
We have received and are in the process of responding to investigative subpoenas from the SEC concerning IIA, which primarily held assets from institutional investors and was the Company’s primary source of funding for originated receivables through the end of the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company is cooperating with the investigation and cannot predict its outcome or any potential impact on the Company’s financial condition or operations.
