(Alliance News) - TruFin PLC on Friday said its accounting software subsidiary Satago Financial Solutions Ltd has entered into a commercial pilot with Lloyds Banking Group PLC to license its invoice financing software platform.

The London-based lending and technology company that works with banking businesses said it anticipates the commercial pilot to run for up to six months and could lead to a five-year commercial agreement if it is successful.

Shares in TruFin were up 33% at 60.00 pence in London on Friday, having peaked at 89.85p.

Lloyds said it will be extending financing to its customers by using Satago's invoice financing platform. Satago will be paid a recurring fee for each Lloyds customer that utilises the platform.

Santago Chief Executive Sinead McHale said: "Lloyds' brand and reach, combined with our technology and speed of execution, is a great example of how established banks and innovative Fintech companies can work together to deliver better outcomes for SMEs."
