Goldman Sachs to Provide Newtek $75MM Revolver

Newtek Business Services announced that its subsidiary SBA-licensed 7(a) non-bank lender, Newtek Small Business Finance, entered into a letter of commitment for a new revolving financing facility, totaling $75 million, with Goldman Sachs Bank.

This revolving facility has a four-year term and will enable the company to continue to grow its SBA 7(a) lending business. The facility will be set up using a special purpose entity to hold collateral, with only a limited guarantee from NSBF. The majority of the proceeds will be used to retire the current line of credit from Capital One Bank, N.A.
