To be included in the historical returns ("Historical Returns") calculation, a Note must have been originated prior to September 30, 2015. Historical Returns are Lending Club's adjusted net annualized returns ("Adjusted NAR") for Notes with Grades A through C. Adjusted NAR is calculated using the formula described here. Historical returns are based on actual borrower payments received each month, net of fees, actual charge offs, recoveries, and estimated future losses. To estimate future losses, we apply a charge-off rate estimate to the outstanding principal of any loans that are past-due but not charged off. The charge-off rate estimate is based on historical charge-off rates by loan status over a 9-month period. Historical performance is not a guarantee of future results. Lending Club Notes are not insured or guaranteed and investors may have negative returns. Individual portfolio results may be impacted by, among other things, the size and diversity of the portfolio, the exposure to any single Note, borrower or group of Notes or borrowers, as well as macroeconomic conditions. Notes are offered by prospectus filed with the SEC and investors should review the risks and uncertainties described in the prospectus prior to investing in the Notes. ------- ii. LendingClub retail investors have historically received 2-5% monthly cash flow, based on the 10-90th percentiles of retail investors' total monthly proceeds (scheduled principal & interest and additional payments, net of any charged off loans and fees) divided by the two-month trailing average account value that retail investors with at least $2,500 outstanding investment balances each month have experienced for the trailing twelve-month period ending March 31, 2017. Individual results may vary based on grade and term composition of an investor’s investment strategy. Historical performance is not a guarantee of future results. This information is not intended to be investment advice. LendingClub Notes are not guaranteed or insured, and investors may lose some or all of the principal invested. Notes are offered by prospectus filed with the SEC and investors should review the risks and uncertainties described in the prospectus prior to investing. Actual results may vary.
