Newtek Anticipates to Benefit for the Newly Launched CAPCO Program

Newtek Capital, Inc. has been providing small businesses with financial and business services. The institution announced that it had the intention of taking part in the Certified Capital Company Program (CAPCO Program); a Louisiana-based program that had been expanded. The then Louisiana Governor Murphy James ‘Mike’ Foster, Jr on June 14th of 2002 signed legislation that created the CAPCO tax credit program worth a hundred million dollars. This program aimed at providing the small Louisiana businesses the much-needed capital they lacked. The program was to take part in two phases; the first phase would have the program funded halfway in 2002, and the other half in the year 2003. The $50 million allocated for the respective years were to be availed in premium tax credits form to insurance companies.

Newtek’s CEO and Chairman revealed that through their participation in the CAPCO program, they had raised a significant amount of non-dilutive capital. The funds raised in the program were to be used for investing in the local businesses that existed in the Louisiana area. Similar CAPCO program branches like those in Florida, New York, Wisconsin, and Colorado managed to raise around $165 million.

Newtek intended to participate in the re-launched program, through the program based in Louisiana and the regional business development center. The regional business development center had raised certified capital of up to $20 million.
