Danny Vena: I want to bring up SoFi's investor presentation with its summary results from the first quarter. Because I think I want to do this to dispel the notion that the financial health of the company is in bad shape because I don't believe that to be the case. If you look at let's see here, I'm going to get a couple of slides here.

Right now, the number of members joining SoFi was up 70% year over year in the first quarter, that's pretty respectable. The number of new products added to their portfolio up 84% year over year. Now, that's down from the triple-digit growth over the past few quarters but necessarily not surprising. Galileo, which is their deposit account that I think they acquired this company not terribly long ago.

Jason Hall: Yes it's a platform. It's something that it provides services for other fintechs too. It's a really, really, really great business.

Vena: Again, on a sequential basis, that's down a little bit, but still 58% growth is respectable. Look at the number of lending products and financial products. Lending products up about 20%, financial products up a 111%, so still triple-digit growth there.

I wanted to bring that up because if you look at these charts, these are not the charts of a company that is in trouble growth-wise. The company is still growing at a respectable clip, maybe down a little bit from the across-the-board triple-digit growth that we saw over the course of the past year or so.
