Basis of Presentation—The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of MoneyLion Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries and consolidated variable interest entities (“VIEs”) for which the Company is the primary beneficiary. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company does not have any items of other comprehensive loss; therefore, there is no difference between net loss and comprehensive loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.
Reverse Stock Split—On April 24, 2023, the Company amended the Company's Fourth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (as amended from time to time, the "Certificate of Incorporation") to effect, effective as of 5:01 p.m. Eastern Time on April 24, 2023, a -for-30 reverse stock split (the "Reverse Stock Split") of the Class A Common Stock. At the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, every 30 shares of Class A Common Stock either issued and outstanding or held as treasury stock were automatically reclassified into one new share of Class A Common Stock, and the total number of shares of Class A Common Stock authorized for issuance was reduced by a corresponding proportion from 2,000,000,000 shares to 66,666,666 shares. The Reverse Stock Split was approved by the Company's stockholders at a Special Meeting of Stockholders on April 19, 2023 and approved by the Board of Directors on April 21, 2023. The primary goal of the Reverse Stock Split was to increase the per share price of the Class A Common Stock in order to meet the minimum per share price requirement for continued listing on the NYSE. The Class A Common Stock began trading on the NYSE on an as-adjusted basis on April 25, 2023 under the existing trading symbol "ML."
In addition, as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, proportionate adjustments were made to the number of shares of Class A Common Stock underlying the Company’s outstanding equity awards, the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of the Company’s outstanding warrants and the number of shares issuable under the Company’s equity incentive plans and certain existing agreements, as well as the exercise, grant and acquisition prices of such equity awards and warrants, as applicable. Furthermore, proportionate adjustments were made to the conversion factor at which the Company’s previously outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), were converted to Class A Common Stock. The total number of shares of preferred stock of the Company authorized for issuance remained at 200,000,000. Stockholders who would have been entitled to receive fractional shares as a result of the Reverse Stock Split were instead entitled to a cash payment in lieu thereof at a price equal to the fraction of one share to which the stockholder was otherwise entitled multiplied by the closing price per share of the Class A Common Stock on the NYSE on the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split.
The effects of the Reverse Stock Split have been reflected in these consolidated financial statements and the accompanying footnotes for all periods presented, which includes adjusting the description of any activity that may have been transacted on a pre-Reverse Stock Split basis.
Receivable Funding—The Company's primary source of funding for originated receivables is special purpose vehicle financings from third-party institutional lenders. For more information, Note 8, “Debt” and Note 7, “Variable Interest Entities” of the Company’s Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 for discussion of the ROAR 1 SPV Credit Facility and the ROAR 2 SPV Credit Facility (each as defined in Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022) and VIE considerations related to the ROAR 1 SPV Credit Facility and the ROAR 2 SPV Credit Facility, respectively.
