Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC Increases Capital One Revolving Credit Facility to $150.0 Million

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Newtek Business Services Corp. (“Newtek” or the “Company”), (NEWT), an internally managed business development company ("BDC"), today announced that Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC (“NSBF”), the Company’s nationally licensed SBA lender subsidiary, increased its existing revolving credit facility through Capital One, National Association (“Capital One”)  by $50.0 million to $150.0 million.

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “As our loan referral volume and loan fundings continue to grow, we made the decision to increase the capacity of our revolving credit facility with Capital One.  In addition, we believe the addition of our joint venture non-conforming loan program - Newtek Conventional Lending - will draw more attention to the Newtek lending solutions and business solutions model as the joint venture can fund loans up to $15.0 million with long-term debt. We are maintaining our full year 2019 SBA 7(a) loan fundings forecast of between $580 million and $620 million, which would represent a 27.9% increase, at the midpoint of the range, over SBA 7(a) loan fundings for the year ended December 31, 2018.  We anticipate continuing to securitize the unguaranteed portions of our SBA 7(a) loans and pay down the revolving credit facility from time to time.  Our goal is to issue larger S&P-rated securitization transactions and to obtain more attractive pricing and larger institutional interest. To date, we have completed nine S&P-rated securitization transactions.”
