    Supports Growing Residential Solar Demand and Institutional Liquidity

    San Francisco, CA - Dividend Finance, LLC (“Dividend” or the “Company”), a leading provider of residential solar loans and administrator of Property Assessed Clean Energy (“PACE”) financing, has officially closed its first securitization of its residential solar loan portfolio.

    The Dividend Solar Loan Backed Notes, Series 2017-1 securitization featured $128,950,000 of securities (the “Notes”) secured by the Company’s residential solar loan portfolio. The Notes were rated by Kroll Bond Rating Agency, Inc.

    This is Dividend’s inaugural securitization of its EmpowerLoan™ portfolio secured by residential rooftop solar energy systems. This program enables homeowners to finance their installation of photovoltaic energy generating systems for terms of up to 20 years.

    "This represents a great step forward for Dividend and the entire solar loan market,” said Eric White, CEO of Dividend Finance. “Our installation partners, homeowner network, and our investors, have positioned the Company as a leader in the residential solar finance industry.”

    Credit Suisse AG (“Credit Suisse”), a leading global financial institution, acted as sole placement agent on the transaction. The securitization included $115,376,000 4.05% Class A Notes, $6,787,000 5.25% Class B and $6,787,000 7.00% Class C Notes, rated A, BBB and BB+, respectively, by KBRA.
