Ep. 189 - MicroCap Graduation Series with Barry Sloane, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Newtek Business Services Corp. (NASDAQ: NEWT)

August 25, 2021

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I’m sharing with you the MicroCap Graduation Series: Barry Sloane, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Newtek Business Services Corp. (NASDAQ: NEWT). I've known and interviewed Barry as far back at maybe 7 or 8 years ago, and Newtek was actually featured on the front cover of our magazine, the MicroCap Review back in March 2015.

The last 18 months have been especially interesting for Newtek, where, at its peak on June 4, 2021, since its March 2020 low, has gone up 331%, and as of August 24, 2021, up 215%. As the company is described, "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."

Back in March 2020, the company made several announcements on its involvement in providing PPP loans to small businesses and via the CARES Act, and Barry, as he will tell you, has never been busier. In this discussion, we cover everything from why Barry started Newtek over 20 years ago, how he loves being a public company CEO (as he says, 'you have to'), growing pains and much much more. Please enjoy!

In 2019, I started a series on the podcast called the "MicroCap Graduation Series", the goal is to portray a full picture of the Micro-, Nano-cap space – from learning strategies to help you become a successful investor and to show that there are actual real, live public companies that have found success as a public Micro- or Nano-cap company.

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Jason Greenwald. He is a Full-time Private Investor, who, as he says on Twitter, used to only buy Real Estate at Foreclosure Auctions and has advanced some since. I've known and followed Jason for a long time on Twitter and it was about time we had a chat on the pod, and we discuss it all: real estate, stocks and most importantly, commiserate on our respective favorite sports teams.
