Lending Highlights

The Company forecasts $925.0 million in total SBA 7(a) loan fundings for 2024, which if achieved, would represent a 13.5% increase over 2023.
Newtek Bank closed $34.4 million of SBA 504 loans for the three months ended March 31, 2024; a decrease of 29.7% over $48.9 million SBA 504 loans closed for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
Newtek Bank and the Company’s non-bank subsidiaries closed $308.0 million of loans across all loan products for the three months ended March 31, 2024; a 35.6% increase over $227.2 million of loans closed for the same period in 2023.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are more than pleased to report our first quarter 2024 financial results. We broke several records this quarter and continue to perform exceptionally well as a financial holding company. We achieved EPS of $0.38, basic and diluted, in the first quarter 2024. as compared to first quarter 2023 EPS basic and diluted of $0.76 and $0.74, respectively, as previously restated, which was positively impacted by an income tax benefit. However, on a core EPS basis, we outperformed first quarter 2023 EPS of $0.17 and $0.16 per basic and diluted share, as well as exceeded the high end of our first quarter 2024 EPS forecast of $0.19 to $0.25 per basic and diluted common share.1 We are modestly increasing our 2024 annual earnings guidance to $1.85 to $2.05 per basic and diluted common share from our previous forecast of $1.80 to $2.00 per basic and diluted common share. Our out performance for the first quarter of 2024 was led by Newtek Bank's SBA 7(a) loan fundings of $207.1 million, a 35.9% increase over $152.5 million SBA 7(a) fundings for the same period last year. Our alternative loan program, through NewtekOne's non-bank subsidiary, generated record closings of $53.8 million during the first quarter 2024, compared to $12.2 million closed in the first quarter 2023. It is important to note that we continue to increase our loan loss reserves and our coverage ratio at Newtek Bank, and as of March 31, 2024, we had approximately 406 basis points of loan loss reserves, which is an increase from 374 basis points at December 31, 2023. We believe this reserve will normalize at approximately 350 basis points as more traditional bank loan products come onto our balance sheet. Having been in the SBA lending business since 2003, we are confident that we fully understand the risk versus reward of being an SBA lender. We weathered the 2008/2009 credit crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and have experienced both high and low interest-rate environments. With this history in mind, we continue to give careful consideration to the current economic conditions, and believe that we are maintaining an appropriate level of reserves for our book of loans. We feel good about our practices and where we are, predicated on over two decades of lending history, experience and management, and would expect to be analyzed within this framework.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “In addition to Newtek Bank's strong performance in lending, Newtek Bank continued to raise deposits, growing deposits by approximately 8.9% from the $519.1 million at December 31, 2023 to $565.3 million at March 31, 2024. Our ability to gather deposits against an industry backdrop of U.S commercial banks that only grew deposits by approximately 1.2% from December 27, 2023 to March 27, 2024, according to an April 11, 2024 report by S&P Global Market Intelligence, demonstrates that our strategy of utilizing digital account opening together with our thousands of prospects of independent business owners can enable us to generate this deposit growth at Newtek Bank. Key financial metrics at Newtek Bank also saw sequential growth over the fourth quarter 2023. Newtek Bank's net interest margin expanded from 4.43% during the fourth quarter 2023 to 4.80% during the first quarter 2024; and net interest income increased by 16.7% sequentially to $7.7 million during the first quarter 2024 from $6.6 million during the fourth quarter 2023. Newtek Bank experienced a ROAA of 5.8% and a ROTCE of 37.9%, which was accomplished with an efficiency ratio of 50.1% for Q1 2024. Furthermore, we also continued to deliver strong metrics in key areas on a consolidated basis in the first quarter 2024 with a ROAA of 2.8% and ROTCE of 20.6%. Based on the confidence in our business model, during the first quarter 2024 the board declared a quarterly dividend of $0.19 per share, an increase of 5.6% over the prior quarter's dividend of $0.18 per share.”

Mr. Sloane further stated, “We can't underscore enough the transformative change from a 1940’s Act business development company (BDC) to a 1934 Act financial holding company. This transformation, however, makes it very difficult in many aspects for accurate year-over-year comparisons. Moreover, when looking at a comparison of our EPS for the first quarter 2024 versus the first quarter 2023, we noted that our first quarter 2023 EPS included an income tax benefit of approximately $14.2 million, or $0.59 per basic share and $0.58 per diluted share, respectively. On a core EPS basis, we outperformed in the first quarter of 2024 versus 2023. Additionally, during the first quarter of 2023 our SBA 7(a) loans were originated out of our non-bank lender using fair value accounting with no CECL reserve, which, among other things, reduces current income for the benefit of future income. Therefore, when looking at our first quarter 2024 performance with sharp focus, we clearly had strong quarterly performance on a comparative basis.”

Mr. Sloane added, “We still have room for our returns to improve as we complete our fourth full quarter after transitioning our SBA 7(a) loan production to Newtek Bank in April 2023. Our funding costs continue to be lower at Newtek Bank, versus our funding costs for the first quarter of 2023, when we were still originating our SBA 7(a) loans out of our non-bank lender (NSBF). Our 20- plus-year track record of originating quality loans for sale into the secondary market have demonstrated generous returns for our shareholders. We look forward to continuing to drive funding costs down as we expect to fully roll out our lower-cost business checking accounts to our large client database in our marketing plan. Our business plan requires us to ensure that we have the proper staff, software, policies and procedures, and compliance measures in place to raise deposits in a regulatory-compliant manner, which, in 2023, limited our growth in commercial deposits. We slowly rolled out this product in the first quarter of 2024 to a pilot group of lending clients and firmly believe that we will see growth in this depository area for the remainder of the year. Our commercial demand deposit account pays a 1.0% annual percentage yield (“APY”) and our commercial money market account pays a 3.5% APY while providing our independent business owner customers added benefits, through the Newtek Advantage™. We believe the Newtek Advantage, especially when bundled with our bank and non-bank service offerings, provides a tremendous competitive advantage in comparison to our competitors who offer lower deposit rates, charge higher fees, and do not offer the benefits that we offer through the Newtek Advantage. These benefits include, but are not limited to, free document storage, free web-traffic analytics, merchant services data and payroll execution directly from the client’s business portal. By growing this portion of our deposit base, it will give us additional stability and diversification of core deposits at Newtek Bank as well as lower our cost of funds. It is important to note that our deposits, on a consolidated basis, are made up of approximately 76% insured deposits. This metric is extremely important as it demonstrates our ability to attract smaller balances on a diversified basis versus the more volatile higher-balance deposits that upon which our competitor banks rely.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “We are very proud of what our management team has been able to accomplish, creating the foundation for a business that leverages technology, manages risk and is scalable and compliant. We continue to be pleased with what we have accomplished as a financial holding company. We expect the capital markets to gain confidence in our business model’s earnings, growth and consistently high returns on equity and assets. Our success is predicated on our unique, progressive state-of-the-art business model, one that does not depend upon branches, traditional bankers, brokers, or expensive business development officers, which has been tested and has succeeded over the last 25 years. Our experience has taught us that the equity markets appreciate growth of earnings and returns no matter what the business model, and we expect to consistently deliver on our expectations."

CORRECTING and REPLACING NewtekOne, Inc. News Release

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

Today NewtekOne, Inc. (“NewtekOne”) timely filed its annual report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2023. The purpose of this press release is to update and replace NewtekOne’s press release dated March 5, 2024, which announced NewtekOne’s unaudited fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial results.
NewtekOne, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Full Year 2023 Basic Earnings per Share of $1.89 and Diluted Earnings per Share of $1.88

NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT), announced today its audited financial and operating results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023.

This is NewtekOne's fourth quarter reporting, and third full quarter reporting, as a financial holding company following the Company's January 6, 2023 completion of the acquisition of National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC") (renamed Newtek Bank, N.A.) and the withdrawal of NewtekOne's BDC election. NewtekOne now consolidates the balance sheets and results of operations of its former portfolio companies (now consolidated subsidiaries) and no longer applies investment company accounting.

Barry Sloane, CEO, President and Chairman commented, “We are pleased to report our first full year as a financial holding company owning Newtek Bank, a nationally chartered bank. We achieved basic earnings per share (EPS) of $1.89 and diluted EPS of $1.88. We believe that we can achieve EPS growth in today’s environment, given the majority of our net revenue is non-interest-bearing, making our business model unique and valuable. For the full year 2023, Newtek Bank realized return on average assets ("ROAA") of 5.7%, return on tangible common equity ("ROTCE") of 35.7%, and an efficiency ratio of 49.9%. NewtekOne, Newtek Bank's financial holding company, realized ROAA of 3.6%, and ROTCE of 27.6%1. We believe these metrics clearly depict a thriving business; one that serves independent business owners in all 50 states and that is well positioned for financial and operational growth in future quarters, demonstrated by our expanding net interest margin. Our operating structure does not use branches, traditional bankers, brokers, or business development officers to source business opportunities, and instead, relies upon the patented NewTracker(R) system which generates approximately 1,000 unique business referrals each day. Unlike other financial holding companies, we have been able to expand our business during these difficult times in the banking sector, which we attribute to our unique and time-tested business model that utilizes technology to minimize or eliminate the concept of traditional bankers, brokers, branches and business development officers. With NewtekOne’s common equity Tier 1 capital (CET1) ratio of 16.2%, total capital ratio of 19.1%, and 13.6% leverage ratio, we believe we have the equity to continue to grow our business, pay an attractive market dividend and grow retaining earnings.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “With 2023 behind us, we can look back with pride over the year’s multiple accomplishments and building a strong foundation for our future. The conversion from a BDC to a financial holding company resulted in the Company no longer qualifying as a regulated investment company (RIC) for federal income tax purposes and no longer qualifying for accounting treatment as an investment company. Accordingly, we believe prior year and year-over-year comparisons are difficult and it is important to analyze many of our financial metrics on a quarter-over-quarter sequential basis. Additionally, when analyzing NewtekOne, we also believe it is important to consider our time-tested, differentiated business model which has provided multiple streams of income from its lines of business. These changes came with many operational and accounting challenges. We are on a path to realizing our goal of being recognized as the premier business and financial solutions provider for independent business owners in the U.S. By purchasing a nationally chartered bank, we were able to add depository services to our already-robust menu of high-quality business and financial solutions that we believe can enable our clients to operate at a higher level. Most of our clients go to their depository institutions multiple times per week or month. Extremely important to note is that our conversion to a bank holding company in no way implies that NewtekOne and Newtek Bank will look like or operate like the universe of traditional bank holding companies or banks. As a result, we do not think we should be valued like a traditional bank, as our business model offers our investors more than net interest income, and therefore, we believe should garner distinct valuation compared to the universe of traditional banks. We also value this non-interest income as reoccurring income. We firmly believe that our business model can be executed with prudent risk management practices while servicing our clients with multiple solutions that can enhance their business and commercial endeavors. Our operating metrics are built on growth objectives with respect to ROA, ROE, and efficiency ratios, which we believe is distinct from the asset-growth strategies of the traditional banking industry."

NewtekOne Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Highlight

As noted above, we believe it is important to analyze many of our financial metrics on a quarter-over-quarter sequential basis:

Newtek Bank and the Company’s non-bank subsidiaries closed a record$1.1 billion of loans, across all loan products, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2023, compared to $923.8 million of loans closed by NewtekOne, its subsidiaries and portfolio companies for the same period in 2022.
The Company’s 2023 prior-period comparative financial statements have been adjusted to correct errors made in the Company’s condensed financial statements previously issued in the first, second, and third quarters of 2023. Amounts referenced in this press release refer to results on an "As Adjusted" basis unless otherwise noted. Specifically, as set forth in the "Summary of Revisions to Prior Period Financial Statements," annexed hereto, which revises certain line items in the Company’s condensed financial information for the first, second, and third quarters of 2023 as previously reported, the Company’s: (i) year-to-date EPS (basic and diluted) reflects an increase of $0.36 per share and $0.36 per share, respectively; (ii) year-to-date Net Income reflects an increase of $7.9 million; and (iii) Total Assets reflects an increase of $15.3 million. The increases in Total Assets was primarily driven by the recognition of net deferred tax assets and income tax receivables as well as intangible assets. The increases in Net Income resulted principally from the after-tax impact of the recognition of servicing assets at Newtek Bank, and the recognition of deferred loan origination costs, net, in connection with accounting for loans originated by Newtek Bank. The revised calculations of EPS are attributed to application of the treasury stock and if-converted methods, as well as revisions to the allocation of undistributed earnings to preferred stock under the two class method, in conjunction with other adjustments to net income. The Company's management continues to assess the effectiveness of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting (“ICFR”), including any deficiencies in ICFR which led to these accounting errors.

Continuing, Mr. Sloane said, “The goal of owning a nationally chartered bank was driven by recognizing that our client base communicates with their bank digitally with high frequency, so the opportunity and our ability to communicate with our clients through our Newtek Advantage® platform, and assist them on a daily basis to become part of their operating ecosystem, has been our goal and is now closer to reality. We have witnessed the customer traffic to Newtekone.com and Newtekbank.com increase to approximately 18,000 unique digital visitors per month, providing our customers with the opportunity to access the Newtek Advantage®, communicate with us, and see all we have to offer. We seek to employ the most cutting-edge technology and AI in order to enhance the client experience, improve work flow processes, and acquire clients in an environment that has less friction and higher levels of business satisfaction.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “We spent a good part of 2023 building out our bank infrastructure, continuing to hire top-quality executives and establishing additional policies and procedures, all at a great expense, an investment we believe will provide a great return in the future. Obviously, the investment and upfront expense is to better enable us to safely and soundly grow our business, and develop a lasting infrastructure. Also important to note, is that we have been able to grow our loan-loss reserves dramatically during our first twelve months of operations ending December 31, 2023. We ended 2023 with a 3.7% loan loss reserve to loans held for investment, and we expect to prudently manage credit risk and related reserves as the future conditions of the economy take shape.”

This earnings release should be read in conjunction with NewtekOne's annual report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2023, filed with the SEC on April 1, 2024.

NewtekOne, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT), announced today its financial and operating results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023.
This is NewtekOne's fourth quarter reporting, and third full quarter reporting, as a financial holding company following the Company's January 6, 2023 completion of the acquisition of National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC") (renamed Newtek Bank, N.A.) and the withdrawal of NewtekOne's BDC election. NewtekOne now consolidates the balance sheets and results of operations of its former portfolio companies (now consolidated subsidiaries) and no longer applies investment company accounting.

Barry Sloane, CEO, President and Chairman commented, “We are pleased to report our first full year as a financial holding company owning Newtek Bank, a nationally chartered bank. We achieved basic earnings per share (EPS) of $1.71 and diluted EPS of $1.70, in line with our previously issued annual earnings guidance of $1.60 to $1.80 per basic and diluted common share. For 2024, we are currently forecasting annual EPS in a range of $1.80 to $2.00 per basic and diluted common share, which would represent an approximate 11% increase from 2023 EPS to the midpoint of the 2024 forecasted range. We believe that we can achieve double-digit controlled EPS growth in today’s environment, given the majority of our net revenue is non-interest-bearing, making our business model unique and valuable. For the full year 2023, Newtek Bank realized return on average assets ("ROAA") of 5.8%, return on tangible common equity ("ROTCE") of 35.8%, and an efficiency ratio of 49.8%. NewtekOne, Newtek Bank's financial holding company, realized ROAA of 3.2%, and ROTCE of 22.7%1. We believe these metrics clearly depict a thriving business; one that serves independent business owners in all 50 states and that is well positioned for financial and operational growth in future quarters, demonstrated by our expanding net interest margin. Our operating structure does not use branches, traditional bankers, brokers, or business development officers to source business opportunities, and instead, relies upon the patented NewTracker(R) system which generates approximately 1,000 unique business referrals each day. Unlike other financial holding companies, we have been able to expand our business during these difficult times in the banking sector, which we attribute to our unique and time-tested business model that utilizes technology to minimize or eliminate the concept of traditional bankers, brokers, branches and business development officers. With NewtekOne’s common equity Tier-1 capital (CET1) ratio of 16.5%, total capital ratio of 19.6%, and 15.6% leverage ratio, we believe we have the equity to continue to grow our business, pay an attractive market dividend and grow retaining earnings.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “With 2023 behind us, we can look back with pride over the year’s multiple accomplishments and building a strong foundation for our future. The conversion from a BDC to a financial holding company resulted in the Company no longer qualifying as a regulated investment company (RIC) for federal income tax purposes and no longer qualifying for accounting treatment as an investment company. Accordingly, we believe prior year and year-over-year comparisons are difficult and it is important to analyze many of our financial metrics on a quarter-over-quarter sequential basis. Additionally, when analyzing NewtekOne, we also believe it is important to consider our time-tested, differentiated business model which has provided multiple streams of income from its lines of business. These changes came with many operational and accounting challenges. We are on a path to realizing our goal of being recognized as the premier business and financial solutions provider for independent business owners in the U.S. By purchasing a nationally chartered bank, we were able to add depository services to our already-robust menu of high-quality business and financial solutions that we believe can enable our clients to operate at a higher level. Most of our clients go to their depository institutions multiple times per week or month. Extremely important to note is that our conversion to a bank holding company in no way implies that NewtekOne and Newtek Bank will look like or operate like the universe of traditional bank holding companies or banks. As a result, we do not think we should be valued like a traditional bank, as our business model offers our investors more than net interest income, and therefore, we believe should garner distinct valuation compared to the universe of traditional banks. We also value this non-interest income as reoccurring income. We firmly believe that our business model can be executed with prudent risk management practices while servicing our clients with multiple solutions that can enhance their business and commercial endeavors. Our operating metrics are built on growth objectives with respect to ROA, ROE, and efficiency ratios, which we believe is distinct from the asset-growth strategies of the traditional banking industry. During our call tomorrow morning, we will illustrate our differentiated model through the discussion of detailed performance metrics.”

________________________
1 Non-GAAP; reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are set forth on the last page of the financial information accompanying this press release.

2 Assets under supervision, capital ratios, risk-weighted assets and supplementary leverage ratio are preliminary data and subject to change prior to any filings with regulatory agencies and the filing of our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.


The Company’s 2023 prior-period comparative financial statements have been adjusted to correct errors made in the Company’s condensed financial statements previously issued in the first, second, and third quarters of 2023. Amounts referenced in this press release refer to results on an "As Adjusted" basis unless otherwise noted. Specifically, as set forth in the "Summary of Revisions to Prior Period Financial Statements," annexed hereto, which revises certain line items in the Company’s condensed financial information for the first, second, and third quarters of 2023 as previously reported, the Company’s: (i) year-to-date EPS (basic and diluted) reflects an increase of $0.08 per share and $0.07 per share, respectively; (ii) year-to-date Net Income reflects an increase of $1.1 million; and (iii) Total Assets reflects an increase of $7.5 million. The increases in Total Assets was primarily driven by the recognition of net deferred tax assets and income tax receivables as well as intangible assets. The increases in Net Income resulted principally from the after-tax impact of the recognition of servicing assets at Newtek Bank, and the recognition of deferred loan origination costs, net, in connection with accounting for loans originated by Newtek Bank. The revised calculations of EPS are attributed to application of the treasury stock and if-converted methods, as well as revisions to the allocation of undistributed earnings to preferred stock under the two class method, in conjunction with other adjustments to net income. The Company's management continues to assess the effectiveness of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting (“ICFR”), including any deficiencies in ICFR which led to these accounting errors.

Continuing, Mr. Sloane said, “The goal of owning a nationally chartered bank was the recognition that our client base communicates with their bank digitally with high frequency, so the opportunity and our ability to communicate with our clients through our Newtek Advantage® platform, and assist them on a daily basis to become part of their operating ecosystem, has been our goal and is now closer to reality. We have witnessed the customer traffic to Newtekone.com and Newtekbank.com increase to approximately 18,000 unique digital visitors per month, providing our customers with the opportunity to access the Newtek Advantage®, communicate with us, and see all we have to offer. We will discuss these concepts and the value of these impressions on our call tomorrow. We seek to employ the most cutting-edge technology and AI in order to enhance the client experience, improve work flow processes, and acquire clients in an environment that has less friction and higher levels of business satisfaction.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “We spent a good part of 2023 building out our bank infrastructure, continuing to hire top-quality executives and establishing additional policies and procedures, all at a great expense, an investment we believe will provide a great return in the future. Obviously, the investment and upfront expense is to better enable us to safely and soundly grow our business, and develop a lasting infrastructure. Also important to note, is that we have been able to grow our loan-loss reserves dramatically during our first twelve months of operations ending December 31, 2023. We ended 2023 with a 3.1% loan loss reserve to loans held for investment, and we expect to prudently manage credit risk and related reserves as the future conditions of the economy take shape. We are excited about our results for 2023 and discussing them in greater detail during our conference call scheduled for tomorrow at 8:30am EST. Please visit our website and review our Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Presentation.”

NewtekOne, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT), announced today its financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023.
This is NewtekOne's third quarter reporting, and second full quarter reporting, as a financial holding company following the Company's completion of its acquisition of National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC") (renamed Newtek Bank, N.A.) and the withdrawal of its BDC election, on January 6, 2023. NewtekOne now consolidates the results of its former portfolio companies (now subsidiaries) and no longer uses investment company accounting. As a result, some prior-period and year-over-year comparisons are difficult, and we believe it is important to analyze many of our financial metrics on linked-quarter basis. Additionally, when analyzing NewtekOne, we also believe it is important to consider the Company's time-tested, differentiated business model which has provided multiple streams of income from its various businesses, as well as its operating structure which does not use branches, traditional bankers, brokers or business development officers to source business opportunities and instead relies upon the NewTracker(R) system which provides approximately 1,000 unique business referrals each day.

Mr. Sloane continued, “Newtek Bank had a net interest margin of 3.49%; a 9.4% increase from 3.19% from the prior quarter. In addition, return on average assets was 5.3%; a 8.2% increase from 4.9% in the prior quarter, and return on tangible common equity was 39.8%; a 24.0% increase from 32.1% in the prior quarter. The bank’s efficiency ratio for the third quarter 2023 was 49.1%; a 16.4% decrease compared to 58.7% in the second quarter of 2023. We believe all of these metrics demonstrate that Newtek Bank has an extremely bright future based upon its unique business model and opportunities to grow its well-capitalized balance sheet.”

Further commenting on NewtekOne's performance metrics, Mr. Sloane said, “We also demonstrated attractive returns with growth features in NewteOne's non-banking and banking activities. Net interest margin for the third quarter 2023 was 2.71%; a 29.7% increase from 2.09% in the prior quarter, return on average assets was 2.8%; a 40.0% increase from 2.0% in the prior quarter, and return on tangible common equity was 22.6%; a 45.8% increase from 15.5% in the prior quarter. Furthermore, in the third quarter 2023, NewtekOne demonstrated capital levels that we view as above the norm for bank holding companies for CET1 ratio, total risk-based capital ratio, and Tier 1 leverage ratio at 15.1%, 17.7%, and 14.6%, respectively. We believe these metrics leave us well positioned for continued growth, as they are well in excess of regulatory minimums and we believe are above what is typical for conventional banks and bank holding companies.”

Mr. Sloane further commented, “We also achieved SBA 7(a) loan fundings for the third quarter 2023 of $209.9 million and maintained our level of deposits over the second quarter of 2023 and, as such, we believe Newtek Bank is very well positioned to utilize its excess cash to fund loans in the fourth quarter 2023 and the first quarter 2024. We have clearly communicated that deposit gathering in 2023 was focused on bringing in deposits digitally, primarily through high-yield savings accounts, and that our plan for 2024 will be to bring lower-cost deposits in the commercial demand deposit and commercial money market areas that are more transactional in nature and therefore require additional infrastructure and human talent, which is currently being put in place at Newtek Bank. Important to note, is that our non-banking, reoccurring revenue activities at our Newtek Payments, Newtek Insurance, Newtek Payroll and Newtek Technology vertical businesses performed well, with profits growing over 2022 levels. Our non-bank subsidiary business verticals act as an anchor for our business portal, the Newtek Advantage®, which provides direct access to our Newtek business and financial solutions and is a true differentiator for our clients. At the end of October 2023, we rolled out the Newtek Advantage, unveiling this offering to 5,000 existing NewtekOne clients that are now aware of the multiple ways in which NewtekOne can help independent business owner customers become more successful by reducing their risk, growing their revenue, and reducing expenses by partnering with NewtekOne to process their business. During tomorrow’s conference call, we will address how we have integrated our offerings into our technology to make our offerings frictionless and seamless, so that clients can experience how we can assist them in their business to achieve higher levels of efficiency."

Mr. Sloane concluded, “In the third quarter 2023, we are also proud to illuminate the completion of a public SEC-registered debt offering of $40 million, the continued payment of a quarterly $0.18 per share dividend to shareholders and earnings per share of $0.38 to our common shareholders. We continue to progress quarter by quarter as we operate as a financial holding company, and believe analysts and investors will become more familiar with our unique model that does not rely on branches, traditional bankers, brokers or business development officers. We look forward to addressing the investment community and analyst community on our conference call tomorrow morning.”

A conference call to discuss the third quarter 2023 financial results will be hosted by Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, M. Scott Price, Chief Financial Officer, and Nicholas Leger, Chief Accounting Officer, tomorrow, Wednesday, November 8, 2023, 8:30 a.m. ET.

NewtekOne, Inc. Achieves Record SBA 7(a) Loan Closings in the Third Quarter 2023

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (the “Company” or “NewtekOne”) (NASDAQ: NEWT), announced today that its nationally chartered bank subsidiary, Newtek Bank, N.A., closed a record $218.0 million of SBA 7(a) loans for the three months ended September 30, 2023, which represents a new quarterly record for the Company, beating the previous record quarter of $217.8 million SBA 7(a) loans closed for the three months ended September 30, 2022. In addition, Newtek Bank closed a record 517 SBA 7(a) loan units for the three months ended September 30, 2023, an increase of 45.6% compared to 355 SBA 7(a) loan units closed by the Company for the same period in 2022. Total loan closings across all of the Company’s loan products reached $261.5 million, and 541 units, for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to $251.8 million, and 368 units, for the same period one year ago. Both the total loan closings in dollars and units were also quarterly records for the Company.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are extremely pleased that Newtek Bank closed a Company record $218.0 million of SBA 7(a) loans in the third quarter 2023, outpacing the Company’s previous record from the third quarter 2022. Correspondingly, we also achieved a record in closed SBA 7(a) loan units for the third quarter 2023 of 517 units; 45.6% higher compared to the same period last year. Total loan closings for NewtekOne, which includes closings of SBA 7(a) loans, SBA 504 loans, conforming C&I loans, conforming commercial real estate loans, and non-conforming conventional C&I loans (which are funded at NewtekOne nonbank subsidiaries), reached $261.5 million, compared to $251.8 million for the same period last year. Total closed loan units for all loan products Company-wide produced strong growth as well reaching 541 units in the third quarter 2023, compared to 368 loan units in the third quarter 2022. We could not be more pleased with the performance of our entire organization, in particular during challenging economic conditions, as we believe we have an advantage in the market as we provide technology-based business and financial solutions for independent business owners, which we believe are clearly superior to slower and less-efficient manual processes.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “As we enter the fourth quarter 2023, the continued threat of a government shutdown clearly appears to be concerning some market participants, however our experience in operating the SBA 7(a) loan business for over two decades gives us the roadmap to prepare for any temporary bumps in the road as best as we can. As one can clearly see with our record SBA 7(a) closings, we were able to manage and navigate these challenges in the third quarter 2023, and believe that we will continue full steam ahead for the fourth quarter 2023 for loan production and closings. Since our founding in 2000, our SBA 7(a) non-bank lending platform has navigated many of these temporary shutdowns, some of which have lasted days and some lasting weeks and, as such, we fully understand how to prepare for, manage and navigate through these challenges.”

Mr. Sloane further stated, “We look forward to reporting our third quarter 2023 earnings and hosting our earnings conference call in early November. We plan on discussing, in detail, our ongoing success in deposit gathering, which includes a shift away from brokered deposits to a greater focus on growing core retail deposits, as well as our reduction in broker deposits, and the payoff of expensive lines of credit as we shift more of our funding into Newtek Bank. We will also report our progress in customer openings of Newtek Advantage™ accounts, as well as opportunities and further developments in upgrading and enhancing our staff and senior management team.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “The fact that we have been able to continue to demonstrate a successful transition to owning a nationally chartered bank and executing our business plan and business model during challenging times makes us feel extremely positive about our ability to continue to develop our business model of serving and acquiring clients in a manner that we believe is far superior to traditional organizations operating in our business space. In an effort to continue to convey our business strategy and model, which we believe is unique in the market, I will be on the West Coast Monday, October 2, 2023 through Wednesday, October 4, 2023 visiting with multiple investors and attending the LD Micro investment conference and, currently, I have 19 one-on-one investment meetings scheduled.”

Newtek Bank, N.A. Achieves Record Deposit Growth and Loan Fundings
BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT), announced today its financial and operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023.
This is NewtekOne's second quarter reporting, and first full quarter reporting, as a financial holding company following the Company's completion of its acquisition of National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC") (renamed Newtek Bank, N.A.) and the withdrawal of its BDC election, on January 6, 2023. NewtekOne now consolidates the results of its former portfolio companies (now subsidiaries) and no longer uses investment company accounting. As a result, some prior-period comparisons on both a sequential and year-over-year basis are difficult. When analyzing NewtekOne, we believe it is important to consider the Company's time-tested differentiated business model which can provide multiple streams of income from its various businesses, as well as its operating structure which does not use brokers or business development officers to source loan originations.
NewtekOne Second Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights
Net income was $6.9 million, or $0.26 per basic common share, for the three months ended June 30, 2023, which met the Company's previously issued forecast.
Net interest income was $5.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to $4.6 million at March 31, 2023.
Total assets were $1.4 billion at June 30, 2023, compared to $1.2 billion at March 31, 2023.
Total borrowings were $697.4 million at June 30, 2023, which was unchanged from March 31, 2023.
Loans held for investment were $730.7 million at June 30, 2023, compared to $699.6 million at March 31, 2023.
Cash and cash equivalents were $256.3 million, including $66.7 million of restricted cash at June 30, 2023, compared to $197.1 million, including $72.6 million of restricted cash at March 31, 2023.
Total risk-based capital ratio was 16.4% at June 30, 2023.
Tier-1 leverage ratio was 12.8% at June 30, 2023.
On July 21, 2023, the Company paid its second quarterly cash dividend as a financial holding company of $0.18 per share to shareholders of record as of July 10, 2023.
The Company is reiterating its previously issued earnings forecast for the full year 2023 in a range of $1.70 to $2.00 of earnings per share, and has met or exceeded its previously issued 2023 quarterly earnings forecasts.
NewtekOne Financial Highlights Six Months Ended June 30, 2023
Net income was $18.6 million, or $0.72 per basic common share, for the six months ended June 30, 2023.
Net interest income was $10.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023.
Newtek Bank, N.A.
Total deposits were $447.4 million at June 30, 2023, which represents a 220.6% increase in deposits, compared to $140 million in deposits at NBNYC at December 31, 2022.
Insured deposits represented approximately 90.3% of total deposits at June 30, 2023.
Return on average tangible common equity ("ROTCE")1 of 32.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2023.
Return on average assets ("ROAA")1 of 4.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2023.
Efficiency ratio1 of 58.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2023.
Total risk-based capital ratio was 29.4% at June 30, 2023.
Tier-1 leverage ratio was 16.9% at June 30, 2023.
Lending Highlights
Total commercial loan closings were $251.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023; a 6.4% increase over the three months ended June 30, 2022.
As of April 2023, the Company began funding SBA 7(a) loans out of Newtek Bank with Preferred Lenders Program (PLP) status.
Total SBA 7(a) loan fundings of $195.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023; a 2.3% decrease over the $200.6 million of SBA 7(a) loans funded by Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC ("NSBF") for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
Total SBA 7(a) loan fundings of $344.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023; a 5.4% decrease over the $363.9 million of SBA 7(a) loans funded by NSBF for the six months ended June 30, 2022.
The Company forecasts $875 million in total SBA 7(a) loan fundings in 2023, which would represent a 12.8% increase over 2022.
Newtek Bank closed $16.4 million of SBA 504 loans for the three months ended June 30, 2023; an increase of 7.4% over $15.3 million of SBA 504 loans closed by Newtek Business Lending ("NBL") during the same period in 2022.
Total SBA 504 loan fundings of $65.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023; an increase of 39.8% over $46.7 million of SBA 504 loans closed by NBL during the same period in 2022.
Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO commented, "We couldn’t be more thrilled to report such a successful first six months of our transition to a financial holding company, owning Newtek Bank, a nationally chartered technologically enabled bank. It is important to note, that we view ourselves as distinct from our peers in the bank holding company space as we position NewtekOne as the One Company for all of Your Business Needs®, the one company that can make you more successful, and the one company that provides independent business owners with business and financial solutions, all in addition to offering depository services to its clients. We pride ourselves on the level of our 24/7/365 customer service, the ability to offer our clients access to multiple experienced professional service providers through the Newtek Advantage®, and to receive state-of-the-art business and financial solutions that are not readily available at typical financial and business solutions companies. We are extremely excited about the beginning of our journey as a financial holding company and building on our over 20-year history of being able to deliver business and financial solutions to our client base of independent business owners, as well are providing returns to our shareholders. Furthermore, we are very pleased to be able to deliver results for the first and second quarters of 2023 that meet or exceed previously forecasted metrics from the management team.We are maintaining our 2023 earnings guidance of a $1.70 to $2.00 earnings per share, and anticipate our results for the second half of 2023 to exceed our results of the first six months of 2023; a trend that we have historically experienced.”
Discussing Newtek Bank, Mr. Sloane said, “Newtek Bank has been able to achieve very strong metrics through the first six months of 2023, that we believe sets it apart in the banking sector, as well as can help foster the investment community’s understanding that Newtek Bank is unique and has been established to be a disruptor as a technology-oriented organization that serves its business clientele without the use of brokers and business development officers. In fact, Newtek Bank achieved what we believe to be above-average industry returns for the second quarter of 2023 with ROAA of approximately 4.9%, ROTCE of approximately 32.1%, and an efficiency ratio of 58.7%. Additionally, Newtek Bank grew its deposits from $140.0 million at December 31, 2022 to $447.4 million at June 30, 2023, and we feel very comfortable that we will be able to continue to maintain this level of deposits to finance our business lending platform, and if needed, grow the deposit base from levels at end of the second quarter. We also increased our deposit base by 4,500 client accounts through our digital-account-opening initiatives through the first six months of this year, of which the vast majority were opened between March 2023 and June 2023. We believe we will be able to further grow our deposit account openings, albeit at a slower pace going forward, as we have an ample amount of liquidity on hand to fund our lending business and balance sheet growth throughout 2023. Specifically, we currently have in excess of $250 million invested at the Federal Reserve as well as ample capital at Newtek Bank, both of which are earning a diminished spread and represent a potential drag on our earnings ability. However, we plan on deploying this capital in the future, which we believe will enable us to further grow our earnings per share.”
Mr. Sloane further commented, “In the second quarter, we accomplished another important milestone when we shifted our lending operation from NSBF, our legacy non-bank SBA lender, into Newtek Bank. Newtek Bank was granted PLP status by the SBA, enabling it to originate SBA 7(a) loans under PLP-delegated authority without having to go to the SBA for approvals. When combining Newtek Bank and NSBF, we ranked as the second largest SBA 7(a) lender based on dollar volume of loans approved as of June 30, 2023, according to the SBA, through the first nine months of the SBA's fiscal year, which ends September 30, 2023. In addition to SBA 7(a) loans and SBA 504 loans, we have started funding conforming commercial and industrial business loans and non-owner-occupied conforming investor-owned commercial real estate loans. Newtek Bank aims to have a portfolio of these loans to a diversified borrower pool across all 50 states.”
Mr. Sloane continued, “Our subsidiaries Newtek Merchant Solutions, Newtek Technology Solutions, Newtek Insurance Agency and Newtek Payroll Solutions all contributed cash flow and earnings to NewtekOne during the second quarter 2023, and we have tremendous growth aspirations for our non-bank subsidiaries. We also continued to build out our senior management team, announcing the key hires of M. Scott Price as Chief Financial Officer of NewtekOne and Newtek Bank, and Burt Chandler as Director of Operations for Newtek Bank, among other executives. Finally, the investment community has assigned bank research coverage from Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, B. Riley Securities, and Ladenburg Thalmann, which along with Piper Sandler, results in four analysts in the banking space currently covering NewtekOne as a technology-enabled financial holding company."
Mr. Sloane concluded, "When analyzing the quarterly results from NewtekOne and Newtek Bank, we believe that it is critical to understand that we were able to achieve strong second quarter 2023 results during an overall difficult operating market environment as well as operational challenges that came with our very recent change in structure. We believe the market environment will improve and operational challenges will diminish over the next several quarters and years, which we believe will result in further growth. Specifically, the following factors detail some of what we have encountered and persevered through during the first six months of 2023, including but not limited to the repositioning of a 59-year old bank for future deposit and loan growth, having underutilized capital and liquidity at Newtek Bank to reduce risk due to current market conditions, staff and policy and procedure changes as a result of shifting loan fundings from NSBF to Newtek Bank, new hires at executive levels in the C-suite over the past 12 months, the full build out of digital account opening and online banking, repositioning of Newtek Bank’s manual deposit gathering and adaptation to new loan offerings, and capital markets headwinds affecting most financial institutions. Our strong results in the face of what we view as a challenging environment is a true testament to our fortitude, acumen and adaptability that has served us well throughout our entire operating history and we believe will continue to do as we continue to build and grow NewtekOne and Newtek Bank. That said, we are extremely pleased with the shape and direction our new structure is taking, and believe the best is yet to come. We look forward to providing more detail on the quarter and our growth initiatives during our earnings conference call tomorrow morning, which we welcome you all to attend.”

NewtekOne Closed its 12th S&P-Rated Loan Securitization of $103.9 Million of SBA 7(a) Unguaranteed Loan-Backed Notes Series 2023-1

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT), announced today that it has closed its twelfth small business loan securitization, with the offering of $103,860,000 of Unguaranteed SBA 7(a) Loan-Backed Notes, Series 2023-1, consisting of $84,270,000 of Class A Notes and $19,590,000 of Class B Notes (collectively, the “Notes”), with preliminary ratings of “A- (sf)” and “BBB- (sf)”, respectively, by S&P Global Ratings (“S&P”). The Notes had a 79.5% advance rate. The Class A Notes were priced at lesser of 30-day Average Compounded SOFR plus 300 basis points or PRIME minus 50 basis points, and the Class B Notes were priced at lesser of 30-day Average Compounded SOFR plus 425 basis points or PRIME plus 75 basis points (Note interest rates are floating rate and adjust monthly).
The Notes are collateralized by the right to receive payments and other recoveries attributable to the unguaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans made by Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC ("NSBF") pursuant to Section 7(a) of the Small Business Act, and overcollateralized by NSBF's participation interest in the unguaranteed portions. Deutsche Bank Securities and Capital One Securities acted as joint book running managers for the transaction.

In April 2023, Newtek Bank began funding the SBA 7(a) loan origination pipeline transferred from NSBF, the Company’s previous SBA 7(a) lender. Newtek Bank originates SBA 7(a) loans under PLP-delegated authority granted by the SBA.

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of NewtekOne, Inc. said, “Once again, we are thrilled with the market reception that NewtekOne received on its twelfth issuance of structured notes rated by S&P Global Ratings. We are particularly pleased that investors invested in our transaction despite marketing over the Memorial Day holiday and the prospects of a government debt-ceiling crisis. The rating agencies and 9 unique institutional investors recognized the quality of our portfolio by giving us an advance rate equal to advance rates on prior transactions. We estimate the NSBF loan portfolio that serves as collateral for five different and distinct securitizations has a weighted-average coupon equal to 11.05% and a weighted-average coupon on the bonds from our 2018, 2019, 2021, 2022 and -2023 securitization transactions of 7.86%, which equates to a weighted average net interest margin of 3.19%. NSBF will no longer originate SBA 7(a) loans and currently is in a run-off mode with expenses limited, in material part, to interest expense on securitizations. Newtek Bank’s subsidiary, Newtek Small Business Lending, is servicing NSBF’s loan portfolio. NSBF is represented in our public filings as a separate and distinct segment and will be wound down as the securitizations pay off and amortize. We would like to thank the bond investors that have invested in our rated securities, as well as Deutsche Bank and Capital One Securities, which were the joint book running managers on this transaction.”

The Newtek Small Business Loan Trust, 2023-1, is preparing to issue approximately $103.8 million in asset-backed securities secured by a pool of SBA small business loans, a portion of which has strong seasoning. According to S&P Global Ratings, which intends to assign ratings to the notes, approximately 17% of the 1,064 loans in the collateral pool had previously been securitized in two previous Newtek Small Business Loan Trust transactions, from 2016 and 2017. According to S&P, these loans add valuable seasoning to the current collateral pool, which will actually be larger than the series 2022-1.

UPDATE -- NewtekOne, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2023 Net Income of $11.7 million, or $0.46 per Basic Share

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT), announced today its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
This is NewtekOne's first quarter reporting as a financial holding company following the Company's completion of its acquisition of National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC") (renamed Newtek Bank, N.A.) and the withdrawal of its BDC election, on January 6, 2023. As a result, prior-period comparisons on both a sequential and year-over-year basis are difficult. NewtekOne now consolidates its results and no longer uses investment company accounting. When analyzing NewtekOne, we believe it is important to consider the Company's time-tested differentiated business model which can provide multiple streams of income from its various businesses, as well as its operating structure which does not use brokers or business development officers to source business.

NewtekOne First Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

The Company is reiterating previously issued earnings forecast for the full year 2023 in a range of $1.70 to $2.00 of earnings per share.
Net Income was $11.7 million, or $0.46 per basic common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2023, which exceeded its previously stated forecast of $0.41 per basic common share.
Net interest income was $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
Total assets were $1.2 billion at March 31, 2023.
Total borrowings were $697.4 million at March 31, 2023.
Cash and cash equivalents was $197.1 million, including $72.6 million of restricted cash at March 31, 2023.
Loans held for investment were $699.6 million at March 31, 2023.
Total risk-based capital ratio was 17.7% at March 31, 2023.
Tier-1 leverage ratio was 14.0.% at March 31, 2023.
On April 14, 2023, the Company paid its first quarterly cash dividend as a financial holding company of $0.18 per share to shareholders of record as of April 4, 2023, which exceeded the Company’s previously forecast dividend projection of $0.16 per share.
Newtek Bank, N.A.

Total deposits were $247.6 million at March 31, 2023.
Total deposits as of April 28, 2023 were approximately $310 million, which represents a 121% increase in deposits, compared to $140 million in deposits at NBNYC at December 31, 2022.
The amount of insured deposits was approximately 94.5% at March 31, 2023.
Total risk-based capital ratio was 35.1% at March 31, 2023.
Tier-1 leverage ratio was 27.4% at March 31, 2023.
Lending Highlights

Total commercial loan closings were $228.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023; a 12.5% increase over the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC (“NSBF”) and Newtek Bank funded $147.9 million of SBA 7(a) loans during the three months ended March 31, 2023; a 9.1% decrease over the $163.3 million of SBA 7(a) loans funded for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
The Company forecasts $875 million in SBA 7(a) loan fundings in 2023, which would represent a 12.8% increase over 2022.
Newtek Bank closed $48.9 million of SBA 504 loans for the three months ended March 31, 2023; an increase of 55.7% over $31.4 million of SBA 504 loans closed by Newtek Business Lending during the same period in 2022.
As of April 2023, SBA 7(a) loans are being funded by Newtek Bank with Preferred Lenders Program (PLP) status.
Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO commented, “We are pleased to report our first quarter 2023 financial results - our first quarterly report as a financial holding company that owns Newtek Bank, a nationally chartered technology-enabled bank. Despite extremely volatile industry and market conditions in the first quarter of 2023, the Company was able to successfully navigate its business plan and model. We delivered basic earnings per share of $0.46, which exceeded our previous forecast of $0.41. We are reiterating our previously issued earnings forecast for the full year 2023 in a range of $1.70 per share to $2.00 per share. We are particularly proud to have been able to accomplish all of this at a time when financial institutions were losing deposits, facing difficulties with asset and liability management and pressure on their net interest margins. We believe that our first quarter 2023 results help demonstrate that the problems that are currently plaguing the banking industry do not exist within our business model and strategic plan. Credit risk and duration risk are exceptionally well managed in our business model and strategy, and we look forward to explaining this in detail during our earnings conference call tomorrow morning. In addition, the types of assets that we are able to generate, and have done so for over two decades, can produce generous risk-adjusted margins on a floating-rate basis (for example Prime plus 3.00% on SBA 7(a) originations as of today is approximately 11.25%, floating-rate quarterly adjusting). We look forward to continuing to execute our business plan and goals.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “We are particularly proud of the growth Newtek Bank has accomplished in its deposit base. Newtek Bank increased its deposit base by 121% from December 31, 2022 to approximately $310 million year to date through April 28, 2023, and, since the January 6, 2023 close of the acquisition, has gained over 3,300 new client relationships as of April 28, 2023. We believe this is a significant achievement as many financial institutions have lost or had stagnant deposit growth during this period. Moreover, when other lenders may be scaling back on loan originations, we have increased our total commercial loan originations by 12.5% to $228.9 million in the first quarter of 2023, compared to the first quarter of 2022, on a consolidated basis. In addition, and a critical part of NewtekOne’s differentiated financial holding company business model, is our diversified streams of income that can emanate from our consolidated non-bank subsidiaries, which offer business and financial solutions, including Newtek Merchant Solutions, Newtek Technology Solutions, Newtek Insurance Solutions, and non-bank C&I lending, all of which can provide cash flows to the financial holding company. These diversified streams of income can be viewed in our segment reporting on a going-forward basis, as the new financial structure, despite being taxable, offers greater transparency to our subsidiaries operations and cash flows, as well as the business and financial solutions that we provide to our clients and all stakeholders.”

Mr. Sloane further commented, “We firmly believe operating our legacy businesses in this new structure marks the beginning of our ability to demonstrate to the marketplace what NewtekOne has built over the course of 20 years in the way of offering multiple business and financial solutions to business clientele, which is aptly demonstrated through the Newtek Advantage™, our state-of-the-art technology solutions platform for business clients. Developing and growing an organization of this size and scope takes time, energy, effort, and exceptional devotion and patience to be able to get the software and operational performance to work in tandem, which enables us to offer what we believe to be the highest level of quality service to our clients. The Newtek Advantage™, which exists today on our website, will be further polished and positioned and will be aggressively rolled out during the third and fourth quarters of 2023, to deliver the type of asset that our business clients deserve and expect from the newly positioned, technologically enabled bank and financial holding company of the future.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to explain and demonstrate why we believe NewtekOne is well positioned and has a completely different business model and approach to clients than what analysts and investors have become familiar with over the last 30 to 40 years. Simply put, the market has changed, and client behavior has changed. A 40-year decline in interest rates has been reversed and we believe that the same business model of low-cost deposits, fostered by bankers, brokers and branches with assets that aren't matched by duration will not work well going forward. We prefer to be viewed and analyzed as a business and financial solutions company that owns a depository institution, and delivers, what we believe to be, the highest-quality solutions for businesses to be more successful and enhance their future with a partnership and business relationship with NewtekOne. Our newly launched website and branding strategy clearly depicts this strategy, and we welcome you to visit our sites at www.newtekone.com and www.newtekbank.com. We pride ourselves on the ability to originate loans on a scalable basis without the use of brokers and business development officers, but rather through a model that predicates itself on relationship and solutions specialists available in real-time, on camera, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. In addition, we would like to call attention to our net interest margins, which have been stable and we believe can expand based upon our business model, which is in contrast to the traditional banking model, which appears to be experiencing headwinds due to increasing deposit costs. Our model has been purposefully developed over the span of two decades, and we are now excited to showcase it in our new financial and operational structure. We greatly look forward to our earnings conference call tomorrow morning at 8:30 am ET, and welcome your participation.”

First Quarter 2023 Conference Call and Webcast

A conference call to discuss the first 2023 financial results will be hosted by Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Nicholas Leger, Chief Accounting Officer, tomorrow, Tuesday, May 9, 2023, 8:30 a.m. ET.

Newtek Bank, N.A. Increases Client Deposits by 121% Since December 31, 2022

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NEWT), today announced that its subsidiary Newtek Bank N.A. had an 121% increase in its client deposits to approximately $310 million year to date through April 28, 2023, compared to $140 million in client deposits at December 31, 2022. The Company acquired the National Bank of New York City, and renamed it Newtek Bank, N.A., on January 6, 2023. The amount of uninsured client deposits was approximately 5.5% as of March 31, 2023.
Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO commented, “We are very pleased to be able to report such a strong increase in client deposits since December 31, 2022. Following the acquisition, Newtek Bank rolled out its digital account-opening (“DAO”) solution, which is part of the Apiture Digital Banking Platform, one of Newtek Bank’s technology solutions providers. After making some adjustments to the Apiture DAO solution, Newtek Bank began to aggressively promote digital account opening and its online banking platform beginning in March. From March 2023 through April 28, 2023, of the $170 million increase in client deposits, in excess of $115 million emanated from the digital platform. We are incredibly appreciative of the efforts by Apiture, making Newtek Bank a true technology-enabled bank.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “In addition, in April 2023, Newtek Bank began funding the SBA 7(a) loan origination pipeline transferred from Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC (“NSBF”), the Company’s non-bank SBA 7(a) lender. As we announced on Friday of last week, Newtek Bank has also been granted PLP status, and will be able to originate SBA 7(a) loans under PLP-delegated authority without having to go to the SBA for approvals. This delegated authority is an honor granted only to the most experienced SBA loan originators and underwriters. NSBF will remain a non-bank subsidiary of the Company while NSBF continues to service and wind-down its legacy SBA 7(a) loan portfolio in securitization structures. Furthermore, Newtek Bank intends to utilize its client deposits to fund SBA 7(a) loans, SBA 504 loans, conforming commercial and industrial loans, and conforming investor-based commercial real estate loans.”

Mr. Sloane further commented, “We are thrilled that Newtek Bank’s deposit gathering practice is flourishing in an industry that is highly competitive and fraught with volatility, and that we have been able to deliver these results that exceeded our expectations within our unique business model without the use of brokers and branches. Indeed, we believe we have been able to combine a mixture of technological competency and remote staffing on camera to deliver the highest levels of customer service and account openings. We do realize that launching a DAO software and operational platform does take time to polish and perfect, but we believe it will be the bedrock of a deposit-gathering methodology that will materially reduce the cost to fund our business compared to our former BDC capital-raising structure. We are pleased that during a two-month window we were able to gain over 3,300 new client relationships. We plan to demonstrate during our upcoming conference call how cost-effective funding for certain loan programs out of a nationally chartered bank can accrue major benefits to all Newtek stakeholders, including its clients and shareholders on go-forward basis.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “Important to note that NewtekOne’s management team and board recognizes that the banking industry may have changed due to technological advances and the fact that we are no longer in a decade-long low interest rate environment resulting from the 2008/2009 credit crisis and pandemic. Our business model is reliant upon paying a market rate for client deposits, without a portfolio reliant on fixed-rate securities, which portfolio can generates attractive net interest margin’s based upon our history of being able to originate loans SBA 7(a) at attractive market rates at Prime plus 3.00%, which quarterly adjust, as well as the ability to generate return on average assets and return on tangible common equity that we believe can exceed metrics that banks typically achieve. We look forward to reporting our first quarter 2023 financial results as a financial holding company and giving analysts the initial base case marker to develop their own investment thesis and models on what NewtekOne and Newtek Bank can look like over the course of time. As a reminder, we will release our first quarter 2023 results on May 8, 2023 after the market closes and hold a conference call to discuss the results the following day at 8:30 am ET, which can be accessed through http://investor.newtekbusinessservices.com/events-and-presentations,”

NewtekOne, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Results

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

NewtekOne, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEWT) (the "Company"), announced today its financial and operating results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022.
On January 6, 2023, the Company completed the acquisition of National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC"), withdrew its BDC election, and became a financial holding company. On January 13, 2023, Newtek Business Services Corp. changed its name to NewtekOne® and NBNYC, the 59-year-old nationally chartered bank, was renamed Newtek Bank, National Association, a wholly owned subsidiary of NewtekOne. As a result, NewtekOne, a financial holding company, no longer qualifies as a regulated investment company for federal income tax purposes and will no longer qualify for accounting treatment as an investment company. Going forward, Newtek Bank, N.A. and NewtekOne's former portfolio companies and other subsidiaries will be consolidated in the Company’s financial statements. As a result, NewtekOne's financial reporting metrics will change beginning with the first quarter 2023 quarterly report. NewtekOne's fourth quarter and full year 2022 results were recorded as a BDC and metrics such as net investment income (loss), adjusted net investment income (ANII), total investment income and leverage ratios will have diminished relevancy going forward. In addition, the financial results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, included $50.0 million of fee income from the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"), which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring. As of today, NewtekOne is a well-positioned financial holding company that owns a well-capitalized nationally chartered bank, Newtek Bank, N.A.

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Our future of becoming the market leader as an owner of a technology-enabled bank is not only within our grasp, it has begun, with the rollout of the first version of the Newtek Advantage® as well as our rebranding strategy and our redesigned website www.Newtekone.com. Our mobile account opening and online banking capability is now functional and clients can open a commercial and/or consumer deposit accounts in a frictionless manner by going to www.newtekbank.com. Our bank has already begun to open new bank accounts, take deposits and to fund loan originations. We project our balance sheet and earnings in 2023 and 2024 with optimism based on our 22 years of experience as a publicly traded company, in addition to our historical growth of revenues, earnings, and client footprint. We are updating our EPS projections to a range of $1.70 to $2.00 per share in 2023 and to a range of $2.80 to $3.20 per share in 2024. Given our market leadership in various segments of our business, we feel comfortable with these forecasts. In addition, today NewtekOne’s board of directors declared our first dividend as a financial holding company of $0.18 per share payable on April 14, 2023 to shareholders of record on April 4, 2023, which is above our previously forecasted guidance of $0.16 per share. We believe that our strong balance sheet and forward-thinking business strategy and plan has energized the entire Company and client base.”

Mr. Sloane continued, "Today's results and tomorrow's conference call will feature our final quarterly and annual earnings report as a BDC, While we are proud of what we have accomplished over our eight-year tenure as a BDC, we are also very excited about embarking on our new path as a financial holding company. This quarter and full year’s reported financial performance will be the last time we report as an investment company with 1940’s Act accounting. We are pleased to report our adjusted net investment income for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022 was $0.06 per share and $2.14 per share, respectively. Going forward, as a financial holding company we will be consolidating all subsidiaries in our financial statements and no longer qualify for accounting treatment as an investment company or tax treatment as a regulated investment company (RIC) under the IRS Code.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “Notably, throughout our tenure as a BDC since 2015, we paid out nearly $330 million in dividends and distributions and historically traded at a premium to NAV for the majority of our history. We grew our market capitalization prior to converting to a BDC from approximately $90 million to over $800 million at our highest share price. We move forward with a proud history of accomplishments for the fourth quarter and full year 2022, achieving record annual SBA 7(a) loan fundings, and selling debt and preferred shares in January and February 2023 as a financial holding company. We were able to accomplish all of this while preparing to open up our bank while our regulatory banking applications were pending approval, which was a challenge that we met admirably and efficiently.”

Fourth Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

Total investment income of $23.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022; a decrease of (6.9)% compared to total investment income of $24.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021.
Net investment income (loss) of $(5.4) million, or $(0.22) per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2022, which represents a (414.3)% decrease, on a per share basis, compared to net investment income (loss) of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2021.
Adjusted net investment income ("ANII")1 of $1.5 million, or $0.06 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2022; a decrease of (90.9)%, on a per share basis, compared to ANII of $16.0 million, or $0.66 per share, for the three months ended December 31, 2021.

Total investment portfolio increased by 6.5% to $808.0 million at December 31, 2022, from $758.8 million at December 31, 2021.
Net asset value (“NAV”) of $375.4 million, or $15.25 per share, at December 31, 2022 compared to NAV of $16.72 per share at December 31, 2021.
Full Year 2022 Financial Highlights

Total investment income of $86.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022; a decrease of (20.5)% compared to total investment income of $108.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, which included $50.0 million of fee income from the PPP, which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
Net investment loss of $(6.5) million, or $(0.27) per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, which represents a (123.0)% decrease, on a per share basis, compared to net investment income of $25.7 million, or $1.13 per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, which included $50.0 million of fee income from the PPP which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
ANII1 of $51.9 million, or $2.14 per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022; a decrease of (34.5)%, on a per share basis, compared to ANII of $79.1 million, or $3.47 per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, which included $50.0 million of fee income from the PPP which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
2022 Dividends and Distributions/2023 Declaration

On December 30, 2022, the Company paid a fourth quarter 2022 cash distribution of $0.70 per share to shareholders of record as of December 20, 2022.
The Company paid $2.75 per share in dividends and distributions in 2022.
Throughout the Company's tenure as a BDC since 2015, it paid out nearly $330 million in dividends and distributions.
NewtekOne’s board of directors declared a dividend of $0.18 per share2 today, which exceeds the Company’s previously forecasted dividend projection of $0.16 per share. The dividend is payable on April 14, 2023 to shareholders of record as of April 4, 2023, and is the Company's first dividend declared as a financial holding company.
Lending Highlights

Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC (“NSBF”) funded a record $775.6 million in SBA 7(a) loans for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, meeting its previously stated full year 2022 SBA 7(a) loan funding guidance of $775 million, which represents an 38.4% increase over $560.6 million SBA 7(a) loan fundings for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.
NSBF funded $188.7 million of SBA 7(a) loans during the three months ended December 31, 2022; a (4.7)% decrease over the $198.0 million of SBA 7(a) loans funded for the three months ended December 31, 2021.
NewtekOne forecasts $875 million in SBA 7(a) loan fundings in 2023, which would represent a 12.9% increase over 2022
Newtek Business Lending ("NBL"), closed a record $111.6 million of SBA 504 loans for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022; an increase of 23.9% over $90.1 million of SBA 504 loans closed during the same period in 2021.
Mr. Sloane concluded, “I want to reiterate that the analysis of our final financials as a BDC, in particular with respect to NAV, net investment income, ANII and leverage ratios, although important, we believe has diminished relevance in analyzing NewtekOne on a going forward basis as a result of our change in accounting as a financial holding company in 2023 and emphasis going forward on after-tax net income. As a business solutions company with forecasted returns on average assets (ROA) and forecasted returns on tangible common equity (ROTCE), which we do not believe are typically found in bank holding companies or banks, differentiates us in the market. During our conference call tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m., we will focus on our financial holding company projections for 2023 and 2024. Our accompanying financial results presentation for tomorrow’s conference call can be found on our website in the investor relations section at http://investor.newtekbusinessservices.com/events-and-presentations. The presentation will highlight our exit as a BDC and focus on our forward-looking updated projections and forecasts of the publicly traded financial holding company as well as the wholly owned bank subsidiary.”

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Conference Call and Webcast

A conference call to discuss the fourth quarter and full year 2022 financial results will be hosted by Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Nicholas Leger, Chief Accounting Officer, tomorrow, Tuesday, February 28, 2023 8:30 a.m. ET.

To receive a dial-in number, participants are requested to register at a minimum 15 minutes before the start of the call.

1Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - NewtekOne, Inc. and Subsidiaries

In evaluating its business, Newtek considers and uses ANII as a measure of its operating performance. ANII includes short-term capital gains from the sale of the guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans and conventional loans, and beginning in 2016, capital gain distributions from controlled portfolio companies, which are reoccurring events. The Company defines ANII as net investment income (loss) plus net realized gains recognized from the sale of guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loan investments, less realized losses on non-affiliate investments, plus the net realized gains on controlled investments, plus or minus the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, plus loss on extinguishment of debt, plus or minus an adjustment for gains or losses on derivative transactions.

We do not designate derivatives as hedges to qualify for hedge accounting and therefore any net payments under, or fluctuations in the fair value of, our derivatives are recognized currently in our GAAP income statement. However, fluctuations in the fair value of the related assets are not included in our income statement. We consider the gain or loss on our hedging positions related to assets that we still own as of the reporting date to be “open hedging positions.” While recognized for GAAP purposes, we exclude the results on the hedges from ANII until the related asset is sold and/or the hedge position is “closed,” whereupon they would then be included in ANII in that period. These are reflected as “adjustment for realized gain/(loss) on derivatives” for purposes of computing ANII for the period. Management believes that excluding these specifically identified gains and losses associated with the open hedging positions adjusts for timing differences between when we recognize changes in the fair values of our assets and changes in the fair value of the derivatives used to hedge such assets.

The term ANII is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. ANII has limitations as an analytical tool and, when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider ANII in isolation, or as a substitute for net investment income, or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, ANII does not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Newtek, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results supplemented by ANII. Reconciliation tables showing the adjustments made to net investment income to determine NII are attached to this press release.

2 Note Regarding Dividend Payments
Amount and timing of dividends, if any, remain subject to the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. The determination of the tax attributes of the Company's 2022 distributions as a BDC is made as of the end of the Company's 2022 fiscal year based upon its taxable income for the full year and distributions paid for the full year.

Newtek Business Services Corp. Completes Acquisition of National Bank of New York City

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

Newtek Business Services Corp. (NASDAQ: NEWT) (“Newtek”) announced that on January 6, 2023, it completed its acquisition of the National Bank of New York City (“NBNYC”), a 59-year-old national bank regulated and supervised by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and converted to a financial holding company. NBNYC has been renamed Newtek Bank, National Association™ (“Newtek Bank, N.A.”) and has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. In addition, Newtek has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission its notification of withdrawal of election to be subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940, and has ceased to be a business development company as of January 6, 2023. Within the next two weeks, Newtek will change its name from Newtek Business Services Corp. to NewtekOne, Inc.® and will retain its trading symbol (Nasdaq: NEWT). Additionally, in the coming weeks, Newtek will finalize its rebranding initiative, and will relaunch its redesigned corporate website. The Company intends to host conference calls in the coming weeks to discuss these initiatives and financial and operational targets in greater detail.
Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO commented, “We are beyond thrilled to be announcing this momentous and much-anticipated occasion for Newtek, which we believe will benefit the Company’s growth in a significant way, in contrast to the limiting structure of operating as a BDC. Under our new financial holding company structure, we plan to capitalize on our long-standing business model, better serve our independent-business-owner clientele and enhance shareholder value in the marketplace as the One Solution for All of Your Business Needs®. NewtekOne® will position itself as a business solutions company offering a multitude of solutions to its clientele to enable them to become incrementally more successful and, as the parent of Newtek Bank, N.A., also offering our clientele depository services and solutions. As NewtekOne®, we plan to offer banking as a service and banking on demand, providing a unique offering to our independent business owner clientele who will be able to access their depository functions and money movement capabilities any time they need, as well as develop an invaluable partnership with NewtekOne® through which they can cultivate business relationships, as well as access advice, consultation, analytics and transactional capability. In addition, as NewtekOne® we believe we will be able to increase our ability to finance our growth, lower our cost of capital and retain earnings in contrast to our former structure as a business development company.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “We firmly believe that our ability to deliver superior products as a financial holding company and bank, as well as satisfy our client’s needs, will be materially enhanced, helping us improve the business prospects of independent business owners through our technology-enabled bank in a significant way. We plan to leverage NewtekOne’s patented technologies, including NewTracker® and The Newtek Advantage™ (patent pending). NewTracker®, our proprietary web-based referral system, enables us to cost effectively and remotely acquire customers through strategic alliance partnerships without the traditional use of branches, brokers, or business development officers. Furthermore, we believe The Newtek Advantage™ will allow us to offer our future banking clientele the relationships, analytics, software, and transactional capability that other banks simply do not offer. The Newtek Advantage™ will also allow Newtek clients to easily interact with six unique Newtek subject matter experts in the areas of banking, lending, payment processing, technology, payroll and insurance. These relationship managers will advise and consult with each client on their individual needs, and will be available via video conference, telephone, and email. We believe the Newtek Advantage™ through choice of an a la carte solution set and the ability to margin pool will enable us to grow core retail deposits and provide a tremendous advantage to our existing and new clients. In fact, we will evaluate licensing NewTracker®, the Newtek Advantage™ and other Newtek technologies that have been developed across all product lines to other financial institutions under their brand on a white-label basis. Newtek plans to provide a demonstration of the Newtek Advantage™, in conjunction with its rebranding strategy, during a conference call on Wednesday, January 18, 2023 at 8:30 am ET.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “While we are proud of all we accomplished as a BDC, we believe converting to a financial holding company and owning a nationally chartered bank better fits the market landscape, both financially and operationally, for our clients and can provide increased opportunities for the Company to grow. With all the above-mentioned reasons, we believe this new structure can accelerate the Company’s future growth, enhance shareholder value and total return, and enable us to stand apart with our unique model and state-of-the-art technology. We look forward to continuing to capture the plethora of opportunities offered by the 32.5 million small businesses in the U.S, on a much larger scale in our new structure.”

Newtek Receives Approval From the OCC to Acquire National Bank of New York City

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

Newtek Business Services Corp. (NASDAQ: NEWT) (“Newtek”) today announced that it has received conditional approval from Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (“OCC”) to complete its acquisition of the National Bank of New York City (“NBNYC” and the “Acquisition”). Newtek announced last week that it received approval from the Federal Reserve to become a bank holding company and a financial holding company by acquiring NBNYC. Newtek expects the Acquisition to close in January 2023, subject to completion or waiver of the remaining closing conditions. Upon the close of the Acquisition, NBNYC will be renamed Newtek BankTM, National Association (“Newtek Bank, N.A.”) and Newtek’s current portfolio companies Newtek Business Lending, LLC and Small Business Lending, LLC will be contributed to Newtek Bank, N.A. The OCC approval is subject to the condition that Newtek Bank, N.A. enter into an operating agreement with the OCC upon the close of the Acquisition, which operating agreement contains customary provisions concerning capital, liquidity and concentration limits and memorializes the business plan submitted to the OCC.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We could not be more elated to receive the OCC’s approval to move forward and close the Acquisition and become a bank holding company and financial holding company. With a national bank charter, we believe Newtek will be able to enhance the business and financial solutions offered to our customers to include personalized digital commercial banking and the Newtek AdvantageTM dashboard and truly become NewtekOne® - the One Solution for All Your Business Needs®.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “Given these approvals, Newtek can proceed with its bank holding company strategy, and intends to publicly issue financial guidance for Newtek as a bank holding company owning Newtek Bank, N.A. The regulatory approvals also will allow Newtek to execute on its plan and strategy to acquire and rebrand NBNYC as Newtek Bank, N.A.TM, and to change the name of the holding company to NewtekOne®. We intend to keep our current stock symbol ‘NEWT’.”

Mr. Sloane further commented, “We look forward to paying our recently declared distribution of $0.70 per share for the fourth quarter 2022 on December 30, 2022, to shareholders of record as of December 20, 2022. This distribution will likely be Newtek’s final distribution as a BDC. Upon the closing of the Acquisition, Newtek will discontinue its election to be regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940, will no longer qualify as a regulated investment company (“RIC”) for federal income tax purposes and will no longer qualify for accounting treatment as an investment company. Newtek has previously stated that subject to Newtek board approval, compliance with regulatory requirements and Newtek achieving its operational and financial goals, it anticipates that Newtek will continue to pay dividends as a bank holding company. We would like to note that if dividends are paid from the Newtek bank holding company, we expect they will be treated as qualified dividends versus the pass-through status of dividend treatment in the BDC/RIC structure.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “We are thrilled to see the finish line in completing this corporate transformation, which we have been working on over the last 18 months. We are excited about our future and what we believe is our ability to be a disruptor with a differentiated business model in the bank holding company and bank ownership investment landscape.”

Newtek Business Services Corp. Reports Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

Newtek Business Services Corp. (“Newtek” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NEWT), an internally managed business development company (“BDC”), announced today its financial and operating results for three and six months ended June 30, 2022.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are very pleased to report our results for the second quarter 2022. We are proud to have been able to deliver what we believe are strong results that meet our earnings and dividends forecasts. Furthermore, we were able to grow SBA 7(a) loan fundings by 112.8%, to a record $200.6 million, and increase loan units funded by 154%, for the three months ended June 30, 2022. In addition, we funded $62.0 million of SBA 7(a) loans in July 2022. We are particularly proud because we believe that these record loan fundings were accomplished without reducing the credit quality of our borrowers; to the contrary, we believe that we tightened credit standards which resulted in a reduced approval-rate percentage of loans presented to the loan committee. Our year-over-year comparables across some of our metrics, however, were down, even though we posted strong results. We believe this decline was primarily attributable to the fact the first two quarters of 2021 earnings materially benefited from Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") fee income. As previously stated, this PPP fee income is non-recurring, and has since been replaced with earnings from our core and growing business lines and activities. We firmly believe that our trajectory and growth will allow us to ultimately surpass the earnings achieved during the PPP and pandemic-affected environment, and that our business operations and strategy, including the pending acquisition of the National Bank of New York City ("NBNYC"), which remains subject to regulatory approvals, and becoming a publicly traded bank holding company, is occurring at an advantageous time."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

Total investment income of $19.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022; a decrease of (47.5)% compared to total investment income of $36.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Second quarter 2021 total investment income included $25.5 million of fee income from the PPP which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
Net investment income (loss) of $(2.3) million, or $(0.09) per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, which represents a (113.0)% decrease, on a per share basis, compared to net investment income of $15.5 million, or $0.69 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Second quarter 2021 net investment income included $25.5 million of fee income from the PPP which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
Adjusted net investment income ("ANII")1 of $18.1 million, or $0.75 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2022; a decrease of (37.5)%, on a per share basis, compared to ANII of $27.0 million, or $1.20 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Second quarter 2021 ANII included $25.5 million of fee income from the PPP which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
Debt-to-equity ratio of 1.31x at June 30, 2022; proforma debt-to-equity ratio was 1.15x after taking into account the sales of government-guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans prior to June 30, 2022, which sales settled subsequent to the balance sheet date.
Total investment portfolio increased by 8.8% to $757.1 million at June 30, 2022, from $696.1 million at June 30, 2021.

ANII1 of $35.3 million, or $1.46 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2022; a decrease of (35.1)%, on a per share basis, compared to ANII of $50.5 million, or $2.25 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2021, which included $49.7 million of fee income from the PPP which, as previously disclosed, is not recurring.
ANII of $1.46 per share for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was greater than the midpoint of our previously issued ANII forecast, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, of $1.40 per share to $1.50 per share.
Additional Second Quarter Highlights

On June 1, 2022, at a special meeting of shareholders, Newtek shareholders overwhelmingly approved a proposal authorizing the Company’s Board of Directors to discontinue the Company’s election to be regulated as a BDC under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (subject to certain regulatory approvals and closing conditions described in the Company’s Proxy Statement dated May 2, 2022) (the “Proposal”).

Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC (“NSBF”) funded a record $200.6 million of SBA 7(a) loans during the three months ended June 30, 2022; a 112.8% increase over the $94.3 million of SBA 7(a) loans funded for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
NSBF funded a record $363.9 million in SBA 7(a) loans for the six months ended June 30, 2022, which represents an 83.2% increase over $198.6 million SBA 7(a) loan fundings for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
NSBF funded $62.0 million SBA 7(a) loans during July 2022.
NSBF forecasts funding approximately $750 million of SBA 7(a) loans for the full year 2022, which would represent a 33.8% increase over $560.6 million of SBA 7(a) loans funded in 2021.
Newtek Business Lending ("NBL"), forecasts closing approximately $150 million SBA 504 loans for the full year 2022, which would represent a 66.5% increase over $90.1 million of SBA 504 closings in 2021.
Mr. Sloane continued, “We are exceptionally pleased with our quarterly and first half of 2022 performance, in particular given the market headwinds that publicly traded companies are facing, which are out of anyone's control. Our weighted average net gain-on-sale price for the second quarter 2022, which reflects lagging prime rate increases and other capital market pressures, decreased by 2.5% over the first quarter of 2022, however our core business operations were able to make up for the decline by NSBF funding 330 SBA 7(a) loan units in the second quarter 2022, compared to 130 SBA 7(a) loan units in the same period last year. Over our 24-year operating history, we believe that Newtek has demonstrated its ability to push itself through high-rate, low-rate, good credit and poor credit environments, and we believe that it has been able to outperform market participants and competitors. Being able to meet and exceed the midpoint of our ANII targets, even with a 2.5% reduction in weighted average net gain-on-sale pricing for the quarter, is evidence of such resilience. Moreover, we are pleased to report that our borrowers are currently above a 98% currency ratio in our accrual loan portfolio as of June 30, 2022, and remain confident in the manner in which we manage our relationships with our borrowers and work with them to offer the best business and finance solutions available in the market. In addition, I want to commend Newtek’s senior management team and all staff for being able to deliver these strong results while simultaneously positioning the Company for what we believe will be a transition into owning a federally chartered bank, NBNYC (subject to regulatory approvals and closing conditions), which we contracted to purchase slightly over one year ago, and converting Newtek into a bank holding company. We recently received what we believe is an overwhelming shareholder response at our special meeting of shareholders where 89% of Newtek’s shareholders voting at the meeting gave Newtek’s board of directors authorization to discontinue Newtek’s election as a BDC. I have a tremendous appreciation for all of the work our staff has done during the ongoing regulatory application process and to prepare for the closing of the NBNYC acquisition, while simultaneously working tirelessly to deliver above-average results to shareholders during one of the most challenging market environments we have experienced in the last decade. We continue to believe that the required regulatory approvals will be forthcoming within the third quarter of 2022.”

Mr. Sloane further commented, “In a separate press release, issued today, we forecasted our total dividends for the second half of 2022 in a range of $1.00 per share to $1.50 per share, which are expected to be paid by December 31, 2022, and out of taxable income as they always have been paid, subject to Board approval. Newtek has paid a total of $1.40 per share in dividends year to date through June 30, 2022, and we are currently forecasting a full year 2022 dividend of between $2.40 per share and $2.90 per share. We also provided the markets with an illustration of certain financial targets for Newtek for 2023 as a bank holding company, including from an earnings projection and capital-level basis, if we were to receive regulatory approvals and close the acquisition. This illustration can be found on our corporate website at www.newtekone.com in the ‘Investor Relations’ section under ‘Events and Presentations’ and is titled ‘July 2022 Illustration of the NBNYC Acquisition and Conversion of Newtek Business Services Corp. to a Bank Holding Company’. We would like to note that management is even more confident in its decision to acquire a bank and convert to a bank holding company given the change in climate for interest rates, commercial finance, quality spreads, and the hopeful and anticipated targets for capitalization and earnings.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “Through this new pending structure, in addition to lowering our cost of capital and supporting our overall growth, we believe our ability to deliver superior products as a bank holding company and bank, and satisfy our client’s needs, will be materially enhanced, helping us improve the business prospects of independent business owners through our technology-enabled bank in a significant way. We believe the process of acquiring NBNYC has illuminated how advanced our two-decade-long history of establishing people, processes, and technology is, and may allow us to unlock shareholder value by potentially creating joint ventures with, and licensing our technology to, other market participants and distributing our technology to other financial institutions, including but not limited to community banks, regional banks and credit unions, which we believe could place us in an position to monetize our technological assets and processes. During our earnings conference call we will discuss the NewtekOne DashboardTM, which we will be positioning as “The Newtek AdvantageTM”, which we believe will allow us to offer our future banking clientele the relationships, analytics, software, and transactional capability that other banks simply do not offer. We will discuss this and our financial and operating results on our earnings conference call tomorrow morning at 8:30 am ET, along with what we believe are a plethora of opportunities ahead for our organization.”

1Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Newtek Business Services Corp. and Subsidiaries

In evaluating its business, Newtek considers and uses ANII as a measure of its operating performance. ANII includes short-term capital gains from the sale of the guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans and conventional loans, and beginning in 2016, capital gain distributions from controlled portfolio companies, which are reoccurring events. The Company defines ANII as net investment income (loss) plus net realized gains recognized from the sale of guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loan investments, less realized losses on non-affiliate investments, plus the net realized gains on controlled investments, plus or minus the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, plus loss on extinguishment of debt, plus or minus an adjustment for gains or losses on derivative transactions.

We do not designate derivatives as hedges to qualify for hedge accounting and therefore any net payments under, or fluctuations in the fair value of, our derivatives are recognized currently in our GAAP income statement. However, fluctuations in the fair value of the related assets are not included in our income statement. We consider the gain or loss on our hedging positions related to assets that we still own as of the reporting date to be “open hedging positions.” While recognized for GAAP purposes, we exclude the results on the hedges from ANII until the related asset is sold and/or the hedge position is “closed,” whereupon they would then be included in ANII in that period. These are reflected as “adjustment for realized gain/(loss) on derivatives” for purposes of computing ANII for the period. Management believes that excluding these specifically identified gains and losses associated with the open hedging positions adjusts for timing differences between when we recognize changes in the fair values of our assets and changes in the fair value of the derivatives used to hedge such assets.

The term ANII is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. ANII has limitations as an analytical tool and, when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider ANII in isolation, or as a substitute for net investment income, or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, ANII does not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Newtek, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results supplemented by ANII. Reconciliation tables showing the adjustments made to net investment income to determine NII are attached to this press release.

2 Note Regarding Dividend Payments
Amount and timing of dividends, if any, remain subject to the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. The Company's Board of Directors expects that it will maintain its status as a BDC and regulated investment company ("RIC") in the near term, and therefore expects to maintain a dividend policy with the objective of making quarterly distributions in an amount that approximates 90 - 100% of the Company's annual taxable income. The determination of the tax attributes of the Company's distributions is made annually as of the end of the Company's fiscal year based upon its taxable income for the full year and distributions paid for the full year.

Newtek Business Services Corp., Your Business Solutions Company®, is an internally managed BDC, which along with its controlled portfolio companies, provides a wide range of business and financial solutions under the Newtek® brand to the small- and medium-sized business (“SMB”) market. Since 1999, Newtek has provided state-of-the-art, cost-efficient products and services and efficient business strategies to SMB relationships across all 50 states to help them grow their sales, control their expenses and reduce their risk.

Newtek Business Services Corp. Reports Record SBA 7(a) Loan Fundings for the Second Quarter 2022

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

Newtek Business Services Corp., (NASDAQ: NEWT), an internally managed business development company (“BDC”), announced today that Newtek Small Business Finance, LLC (“NSBF”) has funded a record amount of SBA 7(a) loans for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, NSBF funded a record $200.6 million in SBA 7(a) loans, which represents a 112.7% increase over $94.3 million SBA 7(a) loan fundings for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, NSBF funded a record $363.9 million in SBA 7(a) loans, which represents an 83.2% increase over $198.6 million SBA 7(a) loan fundings for the six months ended June 30, 2021. In addition, for the six months ended June 30, 3022, the Company reaffirmed its forecasts for net investment income (loss) (“NII”) in a range ($0.01) per share to $0.00 per share and adjusted net investment income (“ANII”) in a range of $1.40 per share to $1.50 per share.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We couldn’t be more pleased to announce record SBA 7(a) fundings for the second quarter 2022. We believe these record fundings are testament to a seasoned management team and staff, and it is quite clear that the people, process, and software that we have been able to put in place has given us strong momentum in the second quarter and we believe will continue in the many quarters ahead. Additionally, we look forward to reporting a growing and robust pipeline of lending opportunities on our second quarter earnings conference call. Furthermore, and important to note, is that the year-over-year increase in second quarter 2022 loan fundings was not driven by any reduction in the credit quality of the borrowers we closed and funded loans for, as we do not believe in sacrificing credit quality for the sake of growth. In fact, during the second quarter 2022, the approval rate of all loan requests submitted and decisioned at the loan-committee level was lower than it has been in previous quarters which indicates a modest tightening of loan approvals.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “We previously forecasted that we expected to realize some margin compression in 2022 compared to the higher margins in 2021 during which we realized record gain-on-sale and margins. While we did experience margin compression in the second quarter of 2022, we want to note we were still able to meet our forecasts. We believe the decline in price margin we are seeing in the sales of guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loan is primarily driven by the Federal Reserve Bank (“Fed”) lagging behind the Treasury market in short-term rates, which has caused a lag in price adjustment on the floating-rate Prime, adjusted quarterly based coupon of SBA 7(a) loans, which impacts the pricing on government guaranteed loan sales and in the unguaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans held in our portfolio. However, based on commentary provided by the Fed, we believe the Fed will raise interest rates, which we believe should translate into more normalized pricing during the third quarter 2022, holding all else constant.”

Mr. Sloane further stated, “Based upon improvements in our process and people, we expect that going forward we will continue to realize greater productivity in our SBA 7(a) and SBA 504 lending, as well as our non-conforming conventional lending program. In addition, we also are hopeful to receive regulatory approval to convert to a bank holding company as well as approval to acquire the National Bank of New York City during the third quarter 2022, which we believe will assist us in building bank lending products and round out our lending menu, increasing productivity in conforming C&I lending and well as conforming CRE lending.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “We are extremely proud that even with the increased market instability and changes, we continue to be able to deliver dividends to our shareholders which always have been and continue to be paid out of taxable income. We continue to focus on creating a diversified stream of income from our portfolio companies which can help support our overall business model with the goal of providing reoccurring streams of revenue and income without the associated capital investment in the payments, technology, payroll and insurance agency businesses. We look forward to reporting our full second quarter 2022 earnings in the first or second week of August. We hope to continue to demonstrate that our 24-year-old organization, publicly traded for 22 years, which has been through the 2008-2009 credit crisis and the pandemic, during strong and weak credit environments, and high and low interest rate environments, has been able to navigate all market environments and deliver above-average results to shareholders, will continue to do so. We thank our shareholders for their continued support and most importantly, thank all Newtek employees and the Newtek management team for delivering on our strategy and great results to all stakeholders.”

Newtek Business Lending ("NBL"), the Company's wholly owned portfolio company, funded and/or closed $100.1 million SBA 504 loans during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $21.8 million SBA 504 loans during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
NBL forecasts closing and/or funding approximately $125 million to $150 million SBA 504 loans for the full year 2021, which would represent an increase over $87.2 million of closed and/or funded SBA 504 loans in 2020, which would represent an 57.7% increase over the midpoint of the 2021 forecasted range.
NSBF funded a total of $1.9 billion PPP loans from 2020 through the nine months ended September 30, 2021.
Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are extremely pleased to report our third quarter 2021 financial results. We believe we are emerging from the pandemic with momentum from our core lending operations due to technological efficiencies in lending and a robust pipeline of opportunities brought to us by our NewTracker(R) referral system. We are encouraged by the upward trajectory of our business model, and we look forward to further progress in upcoming quarters. We want to note that we do not believe that the year-over-year comparisons of loan origination volumes of 2021 to 2020 are as meaningful due to the pandemic effects on our lending platforms in 2020. As a result, we are providing the loan origination comparisons between 2021 and 2019, which was a pandemic-free business environment, and which we feel provides a more meaningful depiction of the growth of our core lending platform during this period. During tomorrow's conference call we will discuss the growth in our SBA 7(a) lending pipeline, third quarter 2021 SBA 7(a) loan fundings, and loans approved pending closing in the month of October 2021, as well as fourth quarter 2021 projected loan fundings. In addition, we plan to discuss our ability to project growth and higher-trending results in 2022. Our conference call presentation will be available this afternoon in advance of our call and can be found through the following link Newtek Third Quarter 2021 Earnings Presentation. We recently declared our fourth quarter 2021 dividend of $1.05 per share payable on December 30, 2021. With the payment of the fourth quarter 2021 dividend, the Company will have paid $3.15 per share in dividends in 2021, which would represent a 53.7% increase over dividends paid in 2020. Additionally, we are reconfirming our forecasted 2021 full year 2021 NII of $0.80 per share and ANII of $3.40 per share. We believe these metrics underscore our success in 2021.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “We believe that our level of SBA 7(a) loan fundings of $163.9 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $13.0 million and $114.3 million of SBA 7(a) loan fundings, in the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively, demonstrates that one of our core lending products and programs has strong momentum going forward. The 43.4% increase in SBA 7(a) loan fundings in the third quarter of 2021, compared to the third quarter of 2019, demonstrates our efforts to rebuild our SBA 7(a) loan pipeline from 2020 levels, which were materially impacted by the pandemic and resulting national shutdowns. In addition, we are comfortable with the upper portion of our previously forecasted range for 2021 SBA 7(a) loan fundings and have increased the lower band, and currently expect to fund between $560 million and $600 million of SBA 7(a) loans in 2021. In addition, NBL is forecasting a record amount of SBA 504 fundings and/or closings of between $125 and $150 million in 2021. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, NBL has closed $100.1 million of SBA 504 loans, compared to $21.8 million and $26.3 million of SBA 504 loans during the same periods in 2020 and 2019, respectively. Our non-conforming conventional loan program has experienced a slow start, however we remain confident in the joint venture business model of originating non-conforming commercial loans and issuing securitized financing as part of our business plan. The Company will address its options to refinance more expensive debt and lower our cost of capital.during tomorrow's conference call.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “Our portfolio companies in payment processing and technology solutions continue to track well, delivering non-credit related reoccurring income streams. We forecast that our payment processing and technology solutions portfolio companies will generate previously forecasted 2021 EBITDA. We look forward to a more detailed discussion of our financial results and expectations during our third quarter 2021 earnings conference call scheduled for tomorrow morning at 8:30 am EST.”

Third Quarter 2021 Conference Call and Webcast

A conference call to discuss third quarter 2021 results will be hosted by Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Nicholas Leger, Chief Accounting Officer, tomorrow, Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. ET.

1Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Newtek Business Services Corp. and Subsidiaries

In evaluating its business, Newtek considers and uses ANII as a measure of its operating performance. ANII includes short-term capital gains from the sale of the guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans and conventional loans, and beginning in 2016, capital gain distributions from controlled portfolio companies, which are reoccurring events. The Company defines ANII as Net investment income (loss) plus Net realized gains recognized from the sale of guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loan investments, less realized losses on non-affiliate investments, plus the net realized gains on controlled investments, plus or minus the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, plus loss on extinguishment of debt, plus or minus an adjustment for gains or losses on derivative transactions.

We do not designate derivatives as hedges to qualify for hedge accounting and therefore any net payments under, or fluctuations in the fair value of, our derivatives are recognized currently in our GAAP income statement. However, fluctuations in the fair value of the related assets are not included in our income statement. We consider the gain or loss on our hedging positions related to assets that we still own as of the reporting date to be “open hedging positions.” While recognized for GAAP purposes, we exclude the results on the hedges from ANII until the related asset is sold and/or the hedge position is “closed,” whereupon they would then be included in ANII in that period. These are reflected as “Adjustment for realized gain/(loss) on derivatives” for purposes of computing ANII for the period. We believe that excluding these specifically identified gains and losses associated with the open hedging positions adjusts for timing differences between when we recognize changes in the fair values of our assets and changes in the fair value of the derivatives used to hedge such assets.

The term ANII is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. ANII has limitations as an analytical tool and, when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider ANII in isolation, or as a substitute for net investment income, or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, ANII does not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Newtek, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results supplemented by ANII.

2 Note Regarding Dividend Payments
Amount and timing of dividends, if any, remain subject to the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. The Company's Board of Directors expects to maintain a dividend policy with the objective of making quarterly distributions in an amount that approximates 90 - 100% of the Company's annual taxable income. The determination of the tax attributes of the Company's distributions is made annually as of the end of the Company's fiscal year based upon its taxable income for the full year and distributions paid for the full year.

Note Regarding PPP Income
The Company's financial results for 2020 and the nine months ended September 30, 2021, includes income generated from NSBF's origination of loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which ended during the third quarter of 2021, and should not be viewed as recurring.

Newtek Business Services Corp. Forecasts Full Year 2021 Net Investment Income of $0.80 per Share and Adjusted Net Investment Income of $3.40 per Share

Source: GlobeNewswire Inc.

Newtek Business Services Corp. (the “Company”), (Nasdaq: NEWT), an internally managed business development company (“BDC”), today provided forecasts for its net investment income (“NII”) and adjusted net investment income (“ANII”) for the full year 2021, as well as for its first quarter 2022 dividend. The Company forecasts full year 2021 NII of $0.80 per share and ANII of $3.401 per share for 2021. In addition, the Company forecasts a first quarter 2022 dividend of $0.652 per share. The Company also reaffirmed its annual 2021 dividend forecast of $3.15 per share, which would indicate a dividend forecast of $1.05 per share in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company expects to pay its dividends out of taxable income as it has done historically.
The following tables provide historical and forecasted data for dividends.


Historical and Forecasted Quarterly Dividends
(per share) Q1'19 Q1'20 Q1'21 Q1'22 Forecast
Dividends $0.40 $0.44 $0.50 $0.65


Historical and Forecasted Annual Dividends
(per share) 2019 2020 2021 Forecast
Dividends $2.15 $2.05 $3.15

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are incredibly appreciative of the path the Company has taken, especially in light of unprecedented times. We are extremely positive about our current pipeline of opportunities and consequently our potential strategic growth trajectory as we have refocused our resources and efforts on our core business solutions in a post-pandemic environment. With that in mind, we feel it is appropriate to provide forward-looking insight, and are proud to be forecasting full year 2021 NII of $0.80 per share and record ANII of $3.40 per share. Furthermore, we are forecasting a first quarter 2022 dividend of $0.65 per share, which would represent a 62.5% increase over a three-year period from the first quarter 2019 dividend of $0.40 per share. Of note, the Company paid dividends of $0.40 per share, $0.44 per share and $0.50 per share in the first quarters of 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively. We believe these forecasted metrics should be reviewed using 2019 as the basis for comparison, as 2019 was pre-pandemic and did not include pandemic effects of repurposing our resources to focus on originating and earning revenue from PPP loans.”

Mr. Sloane further commented, “We are confident we can continue to generate strong financial performance in calendar year 2022, with refocused and renewed effort in our more traditional lending and business solutions products. We are proud that we have been able to grow our pipeline of opportunities, as well as make technological advances in our processes, and forecast attractive market conditions. We believe our first quarter 2022 dividend and 2021 NII and ANII forecasts of double-digit annual growth over the comparable 2019 periods demonstrate the continued belief of management that it can grow our core business and return to normal business activity in a post-pandemic world. We also note, that historically our performance in the second half of the year has been seasonally stronger than the first half of the year. We look forward to continuing our primary focus on our core business objectives and, in addition, will work hard to position the Company in what we believe is the best long-term financial structure for our investor base.”

1Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Newtek Business Services Corp. and Subsidiaries

In evaluating its business, Newtek considers and uses ANII as a measure of its operating performance. ANII includes short-term capital gains from the sale of the guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loans and conventional loans, and beginning in 2016, capital gain distributions from controlled portfolio companies, which are reoccurring events. The Company defines ANII as Net investment income (loss) plus Net realized gains recognized from the sale of guaranteed portions of SBA 7(a) loan investments, less realized losses on non-affiliate investments, plus or minus loss on lease adjustment, plus the net realized gains on controlled investments, plus or minus the change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, plus loss on extinguishment of debt.

The term ANII is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. ANII has limitations as an analytical tool and, when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider ANII in isolation, or as a substitute for net investment income, or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, ANII does not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than Newtek, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results supplemented by ANII.

2 Note Regarding Dividend Payments
Amount and timing of dividends, if any, remain subject to the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. The Company's Board of Directors expects to maintain a dividend policy with the objective of making quarterly distributions in an amount that approximates 90 - 100% of the Company's annual taxable income. The determination of the tax attributes of the Company's distributions is made annually as of the end of the Company's fiscal year based upon its taxable income for the full year and distributions paid for the full year.

NO I just said in my last post and discloser that I don't ! However if I did I would still be a happy camper because the last time I did own it I bought at 18 dollars and sold at 24...

I don't give a ratz azz what happens with NEWT. ALL dividends are nothing more than the return of your capital even if it is .05 percent!

That is why I mostly just sell option premium for income!

Did BA just re-instate it's dividend or did I miss something? NEWT ( disclosure I don't own any) was trading between 16-20 when I first followed it so anyone who bought then is still deep in the money!

ALL stocks go up and down what goes up too much must come back down!

Jeesh it is the long haul that matters you know 20-30 years or more!

What just happened?

NEWT is a BDC (Business Development Corp) and therefore required to pay out 90% of Taxable Income. NEWT now intends to become a Bank Holding Company which will almost certainly slash the payout while adding more regulation and other requirements.

Newtek: Massive Gains To Date, And More Dividend Growth To Come

May 27, 2021

Summary

Newtek has performed very well in early 2021, both in terms of generating share price gains, and operationally.

This year will see the company return record amounts of cash to its owners.

Investors get a high dividend yield, but the outlook for 2022 and beyond is less certain for now.

Article Thesis

Newtek Business Services (NEWT) is a business development company that has performed well during the pandemic and continues to generate strong results. Shares have risen by more than 60% in 2021, but they may still be attractive for investors, especially since the company recently announced that it would boost its dividends massively this year. Investors can, despite recent strong share price gains, still get a yield of close to 10% from Newtek right here.

Strong Performance For The Stock And The Business
Looking at Newtek's stock performance in 2021, we see that shares have risen by a very attractive 61% so far, not including dividends yet, which added another couple of percentage points. That is, for a five-month span, a very strong gain. This was driven by two factors, which are multiple expansion (mainly due to the fact that the market realized the outlook is a lot better than previously thought) and a strong operating performance.

Newtek's business, even though it may sound like a cyclical business that is vulnerable during recessions, has actually performed well during 2020, and even more so in early 2021. Demand for loans from small and medium-sized businesses was high during 2020, which allowed Newtek to offer a large number of loans to the companies it is doing business with. This is why, overall, revenues rose quite a lot last year, especially during the second quarter, when Newtek saw massive tailwinds from government programs that were aimed at providing liquidity for small businesses across the US, such as the Payment Protection Program (PPP). These were, in many cases, issued through banks or BDCs like Newtek, which earned large fees on those loan originations, which came with very little additional risk for these financial corporations.

In 2021, Newtek will, according to management, generate attractive business growth as well, on the back of the economic reopening across the US that will see businesses expand their operations, which translates into demand for additional liquidity. Newtek does, unlike many other BDCs, also offer other services and solutions to its customers on top of providing loans, including merchant solutions, technology services, and insurance agency solutions. Demand for the first two, primarily, is tied to economic growth, thus Newtek should see tailwinds for these services that it provides for customers during the current year, as the economy is getting back on track. Since the US government continues with its very loose fiscal policies, even the pandemic-related business units Newtek profited from in 2020 will continue to generate results in 2021. Newtek is, for example, forecasting that it will fund more than $600 million of PPP loans this year, with more than 10,000 individual clients being served by Newtek. Newtek also plans to issue hundreds of millions of dollars worth of loans through the SBA programs 7(a) and 504. These loans, partially guaranteed by the Small Business Administration, come with relatively low risks for Newtek and are thus very attractive for the company to issue. The same holds true for PPP loans, which are 100% guaranteed by the federal government, which means that there is no credit risk for Newtek at all.

Thanks to these tailwinds for its business, Newtek was able to generate a highly attractive adjusted net investment income of $1.05 per share during the first quarter, a massive increase versus the previous year's first quarter, which had seen below-average loan issuance. The company also was able to increase its net asset value per share by a highly attractive 5.4% during the first quarter, which is well north of 20% annualized. This was possible despite high dividend payments of $0.50 per share during Q1. It should, however, be noted that Newtek's current net asset value per share, even following Q1's strong growth, stands at below $17, and is thus substantially smaller than the company's current share price. Due to the fact that Newtek does not generate all of its earnings through its loan portfolio, but also through services such as merchant solutions, Newtek's NAV is, however, less telling than that of more traditional BDCs, where NAV and earnings are closely tied to each other.

Newtek's solid performance in recent years, including during the pandemic, has allowed the company to access capital markets at more favorable terms compared to the past - with relaxed monetary policy by the Fed likely playing a role as well. Newtek has, during the first quarter, issued baby bonds with a yield of 5.5%, using the proceeds to retire older debt at a rate of 6.5%. Even though a 5.5% rate isn't ultra-low, this is still better than the rates the company had to pay in the past, and since maturities were also pushed back through this transaction (to 2026, instead of 2023), this also improves Newtek's debt maturity schedule.

2021 Will Be A Great Year, And Investors Will Get Massive Dividends
Due to the aforementioned tailwinds for Newtek during this year, the company is expected to earn $3.10 this year, according to the analyst community consensus estimate. Newtek's management seems to see even higher profits, although no exact guidance has been given so far. This can be deducted from the following slide:



Source: Newtek presentation

With dividends being forecasted at $3.15, plus or minus $0.15, and due to the goal of covering dividend payments with the taxable income that Newtek generates, one could assume that management sees profits of $3.15, or potentially even more than that. But even when we go with the current analyst consensus estimate of $3.10, that would still be a steep increase versus the $2.06 that Newtek has earned in 2020. This year's expected net profits are also way higher than the $2.32 that Newtek earned in 2019 before the pandemic hit.

Newtek's dividend forecast of $3.15 for the current year compares very favorably to past dividend payments, which totaled $2.05 in 2020, and $2.15 in 2019. On a year-over-year basis, Newtek plans to increase its dividend by more than 50% in 2021, using the midpoint of management's guidance. It should be noted that management guidance has oftentimes been conservative in the past and that investors have seen several upside revisions. There is, of course, no guarantee that this will happen again.

Based on a current share price of $33, shares offer a dividend yield of 9.5% at the midpoint of the guidance range. Since $1.20 has been declared for Q1 and Q2, Newtek will pay about $1.95 during H2, which will equate to ~6% of the current share price. Since the Q2 dividend has not yet been paid (the ex-date is June 14), investors that buy today would receive about $2.65, or 8% of their investment between today and the end of the year.

The news about the increased dividend forecast for 2021 has propelled shares higher, and together with the previous gains during early 2021, Newtek has now delivered a huge return for investors this year. Even though shares are still not looking expensive relative to this year's expected earnings, it is, of course, clear that Newtek will not continue to deliver returns of 10% a month as the stock has done so far in 2021. It should also be noted that the current analyst consensus sees earnings decline in 2022 relative to what is forecasted for 2021, so Newtek's stock may stop its upwards trajectory in the foreseeable future.

Takeaway

Newtek is an attractive BDC with strong management, a great track record, and a diversified business model that does not solely rely on loan issuance. We first issued a bullish rating on Newtek on January 2 on Seeking Alpha's public site, and about one month earlier on Cash Flow Kingdom. Shares are up by 65% and 80% since those articles were published, not including dividends. Newtek will continue to return large amounts of cash to its owners this year, and its dividend yield still looks quite attractive. Since there is the possibility that dividends get cut in 2022, if the analyst community is right about earnings declining next year, I personally don't plan to add to my Newtek position right here, following this year's strong run. But those that want to see a large cash return this year, and that is more optimistic about Newtek's growth potential in 2022 and beyond may still find shares attractive today, even after the large share price gains that investors already experienced over the last couple of months.
