Ellie Mae reported positive results for its second quarter of 2018, stating the number of closed loans on its Encompass platform increased 6% from 2017 while revenue per loan increased 13% from the previous year.
Ellie Mae reported $125 million in total revenue for the second quarter, a 20% increase compared to $104.1 million reported in the second quarter of 2017.
The net income for the first quarter of 2018 was $9.5 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to net income of 18.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2017.

Ellie Mae President and CEO Jonathan Corr said although the industry is experiencing hurdles, the company is “pleased” that its financial results exceeded expectations.
“The value proposition of Encompass remains strong as the industry seeks a digital mortgage platform that improves and streamlines the complex origination process,” Corr stated. “We have made continued progress in the rollout of our Encompass Lending Platform, announcing the general availability of several Encompass Connect solutions.”
“This includes the general availability of Encompass Consumer Connect, which is designed to help lenders better compete in today’s highly competitive purchase-centric market by enabling a seamless end-to-end digital experience for the borrower,” Corr concluded.
Earlier this month, Ellie Mae announced its new offering for lenders that will allow them to give borrowers a personalized digital mortgage experience.
