|LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Newtek Business Services Corp. (“Newtek” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NEWT), an internally managed business development company ("BDC"), today announced the launch of Newtek Conventional Lending, a new platform to provide non-conforming conventional C&I term loans to U.S. middle-market companies and small businesses. Newtek Conventional Lending is a 50/50 joint venture between Newtek Commercial Lending, Inc. a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newtek, and Conventional Lending TCP Holding, LLC, a wholly-owned, indirect subsidiary of BlackRock TCP Capital Corp. (NASDAQ:TCPC).
Barry Sloane, Chief Executive Officer of Newtek, said, “We are excited about the launch of this joint venture, which allows us to better serve our alliance partners. The program will enable us to further satisfy client needs through the origination of commercial business loans to middle-market companies as well as small businesses in all 50 states. The joint venture will originate loans up to $15.0 million with 10- to 25-year amortization schedules and single-digit fixed interest rates. Newtek portfolio companies will assemble, underwrite, close and service these non-conforming originations. We believe the joint venture will benefit the Company’s SBA 7(a) and 504 programs, and will create an additional opportunity to satisfy the needs of our incoming referrals. We expect that the joint venture will allow us to further leverage our business model and, in turn, will benefit our shareholders. In fact, we believe we could reach approximately $1.0 billion in funding volume across all of our loan programs over the next 12 months.”
