Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On April 4, 2022, Oportun Financial Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing the sale of $228 million of loans through the issuance of amortizing asset-backed notes (the “Notes”) and asset-backed certificates (the “Certificates”), both of which are secured by a pool of its unsecured and secured personal installment loans.

Oportun and funds managed by Ellington Management Group both contributed collateral and were co-sponsors of the transaction, which totaled $400 million. The Notes were priced with a weighted average fixed interest rate of 3.83% per annum. Oportun also sold its portion of the Certificates. By selling both its Notes and residual interest, Oportun achieved a sale of loans at an all-in yield of 6.75% on its portion of the transaction. The sale was completed on March 31, 2022.
