LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Newtek Business Services Corp. (“Newtek” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NEWT), an internally managed business development company ("BDC"), today announced that Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC, (“NSBF”), its SBA 7(a) lender subsidiary, received a 50 basis point reduction in the interest rate for its existing $100.0 million revolving credit facility through Capital One, National Association (“Capital One”), used to fund the unguaranteed and guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans NSBF originates.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We appreciate our over decade-long banking relationship with Capital One. We believe that the interest rate reduction is a testament to the improving credit quality and performance of the SBA 7(a) loans we originate. With our upcoming ability to use additional leverage by the earlier of April 27, 2019 or shareholder approval at the Special Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for July 2018, as a result of the passing of the Small Business Credit Availability Act, this rate reduction will provide us with the ability to retain the government-guaranteed portions of our SBA 7(a) loans on our balance sheet for longer periods of time and potentially realize up to an approximate 350 basis point interest rate spread during that holding period, which we believe can positively impact our bottom line.”
