Q2 Holdings offers a leading provider of secure, cloud-based digital banking solutions, such as deposit and money transfer system for RCFIs in the SaaS market. Besides mobile app templates, Q2 Holdings also provides unique service designs for each client through their API connection, Q2 Open. Q2 Holdings targets their clients in the niche market, RCFIs with no greater than $50 billion in assets.

Recently, the company signed a top 50 credit union in the northeastern United States with more than $5 billion in assets as a retail customer.

Q2 Holding is expanding their market to the lending business by acquiring a company called Cloud Lending in October 2018 for $105 million. It is believed this acquisition may expand Q2 Holdings’ total addressable market (TAM) by over $2 billion.

The addition of Cloud Lending will increase the revenue guide for the full year to $241.2 million, which would represent year-over-year growth of 24%.
