Dear Fellow Stockholder:


We are writing to remind you that a Special Meeting of Shareholders (the “Special Meeting”) of Newtek Business Services Corp. (the “Company”) will be held at 2711 South Ocean Drive, Hollywood, FL 33019 on Thursday, July 26, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. local time.


Our records indicate that as of June 13, 2018, the “Record Date” for the Special Meeting, you held shares of the common stock of the Company and, therefore, you are entitled to vote on the matters described in the Company’s Proxy Statement for the Special Meeting (the “Proxy Statement”), and set forth on the proxy card attached thereto, which were mailed to you on or about June 27, 2018. Our records indicate that we have not yet received your vote.


REMEMBER: Your vote is important, no matter how large or small your holdings may be. Please take a moment to vote your shares.


In particular, the Company’s Board of Directors, including the Independent Directors, recommends that you vote your shares in favor of each of the Proposals described in the Proxy Statement and set forth on the proxy card. Voting promptly may help reduce solicitation costs and will eliminate your receiving follow-up phone calls or mailings.


As the date of the Special Meeting approaches, if we have not received your proxy you may receive a phone call from a representative of Georgeson LLC, the Company’s proxy solicitor, reminding you to exercise your right to vote.


Thank you in advance for your participation and your consideration in this extremely important matter.
