Online lender Oportun has agreed to buy Digit, a digital bank, for $212.9 million.
The deal, which includes $98.5 million in equity and $114.4 million in cash, will give the combined business 1.4 million members and give opportunities to cross-sell to each company's users.
Oportun is known for its loans and credit cards which focus on low-income borrowers. Digit offers savings, banking and investing products.
The deal comes after Oportun pulled its application for a bank charter which would have given it the opportunity to offer products like checking and savings accounts. Now it will have these options through Digit.
ProPublica reported last year that Oportun was among the most litigious lenders in the industry, filing a large number of collection lawsuits against defaulting customers, and charged high interest rates.
