Newtek Receives Approval From Capital One, N.A. to Increase Lending Financing Line by $23 Million to $50 Million

Newtek's Total Financing Through Capital One, N.A. to Reach $70 Million

NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Newtek Business Services, Inc. NASDAQ: NEWT, The Small Business Authority®, announced today that its lending subsidiary, Newtek Small Business Finance, received approval and documentation from Capital One, N.A. to increase its existing $27 million revolving credit facility to $50 million. The form of the amended documentation for the additional financing is subject to regulatory approval, and will bring the Company's total financing through Capital One, N.A. to $70 million on a company-wide basis.  The $70 million consists of a $10 million term loan and up to $60 million in revolving lines of credit.

The Company announced in July of this year that it entered into a $20 million credit agreement with Capital One, N.A., which consists of a $10 million term loan and a $10 million revolving credit facility, both of which have four-year terms.  The term loan was used to refinance the Company's existing $10 million of mezzanine debt from a group of investors led by Summit Partners Credit Advisors, L.P.  Due to the extinguishment of the mezzanine debt, the Company incurred a one-time non-cash charge of approximately $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2014, which represented the total remaining deferred financing costs attributable to the Summit debt, and the remaining unamortized debt discount.  The refinance of the mezzanine debt will reduce the Company's interest expense by more than $1.0 million annually, for a total of approximately $4.2 million over the remaining term of the retired Summit loan. The additional $10 million revolving credit facility will be used by the Company for general corporate purposes.

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are very pleased to announce the Capital One, N.A. approval of an additional $23 million for our revolving credit facility which, upon regulatory approval, brings our total available revolving financing to $50 million for our lending business. This additional financing will give us both increased capability and flexibility to grow our loan originations and issue larger, more cost-effective asset-backed securitizations.  Our ability to increase our total financing with Capital One, N.A. by $43 million since July and, as a result, substantially lower our interest expense, is just one example of our strategic initiatives to increase our top- and bottom-line growth, which we will discuss in greater detail on our upcoming quarterly conference call this Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 4:15 PM."

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
