LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Newtek Business Services Corp. (“Newtek” or the “Company”) (NEWT) today announced that Newtek Conventional Lending, LLC, a joint venture with a subsidiary of BlackRock TCP Capital Corp., closed a $100 million senior-secured revolving credit facility with Deutsche Bank. The new facility includes a $100 million accordion feature, allowing the JV to increase the borrowing available under the facility to $200 million.
Newtek Conventional Lending anticipates using the added leverage to grow its business of originating non-conforming conventional term loans to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and middle-market companies.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newtek, commented, “Based on referral volume and loan demand in 2018 and early this year, we believe that this new initiative could be a material and growing contributor to our future business.”
“We are extremely excited to introduce the launch of this new loan program,” Sloane continued. “We expect to provide more detail on this in our upcoming first quarter 2019 earnings conference call on May 2, 2019 at 8:30am ET.”
Newtek Conventional Lending is the joint venture between Newtek Commercial Lending, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newtek, and Conventional Lending TCP Holdings, LLC, a wholly-owned affiliate of BlackRock TCP Capital Corp.
