Increased Capacity to Support Navan Rapid Global Customer Growth
PALO ALTO, December 8, 2022 — Navan, the all-in-one travel, corporate card, and expense management solution, today announced that it secured $400M in credit facilities, consisting of a warehouse debt facility from Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as the senior lender and administrative agent, with a $200M commitment ($300M total Program Limit) and an asset-backed lending facility of $100M led by Silicon Valley Bank. The credit facilities will be used to accelerate the expansion of Navan’s customer base.
The announcement comes on the heels of Navan’s recent Series G up-round, which valued the company at $9.2B, and the company’s fourth Europe-based acquisition in 18 months. The warehouse facility will enable the continued growth of Navan’s innovative, award-winning corporate card and expense management solution, Navan Expense, as companies look to increase real-time visibility, control, and savings.
“Navan Expense is the expense solution for companies that need to balance savings with proactive control in a complex macroeconomic environment,” says EVP Michael Sindicich, Head of Navan Expense. “With this new warehouse facility from Goldman Sachs, Navan Expense is well positioned to support its customers while continuing to innovate at a rapid pace.”
In Q3 FY23, Navan Expense recorded more than 5x year-over-year spend volume from leading customers across multiple verticals and segments, including Zoom, Canva, Carta, Toast, Lyft, Notion, Databricks, and VaynerMedia.
“When we started looking into other solutions, we scoped Expensify and Ramp but we loved that Navan is a one-stop-shop for travel and expense management and offers a corporate card. There is a lot of appeal in having one place for employees to go,” says Connie Ngyuen, Senior Manager of Finance at Loom. “Now, we want everyone to have a Navan Expense card and to use it as their default payment method.”
In November of 2022, Navan was named to the Inc. Power Partner Awards, a list of the best B2B companies, for both the financial services and travel categories. In April of 2022, Navan was named to the Forbes Fintech 50 for its fintech-powered expense solution. That technology is why Navan is consistently ranked No. 1 in satisfaction for expense, travel and expense, travel, and enterprise travel management software in G2’s Best of Software Grid.
