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.

Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO commented, "After acquiring National Bank of New York City on January 6, 2023, we were able to fully transition our lending operations to the newly named Newtek Bank, National Association, in the second quarter of 2023, and have now demonstrated, through two full quarters of performance, our ability to perform and deliver strong results to our shareholders. Our unique and forward-thinking business model was able to produce strong results for Newtek Bank, as well as positive performance metrics at NewtekOne, the financial holding company.”

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.”
