Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On July 15, 2020, Marlin Business Services Corp. (the “Company”) implemented a reduction in force that affected approximately 25 employees. The Company also announced that the previously disclosed employee furlough will end effective July 20, 2020, such that all remaining furloughed employees not impacted by the reduction in force have been notified of their return to the workforce on that date.

The Company does not expect the reduction in force to impact its ability to grow origination volume when general business and economic conditions permit. The Company will provide further detail regarding its origination growth strategy on its second quarter 2020 earnings call.

Information contained in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed filed for the purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall such information and Exhibit be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Certain statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Generally, forward looking-statements are not based on historical facts but instead represent only the Company’s current beliefs regarding future events. All forward-looking statements are, by their nature, subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. Stockholders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Such statements may be identified by words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “projects,” “estimates,” “plans,” “may increase,” “may fluctuate” and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “should,” “would,” “may” and “could” and include all statements regarding the financial projections for the Company included in this Current Report on Form 8-K. Stockholders should understand that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance or results and are preliminary in nature. Economic, business, funding, market, competitive, legal and/or regulatory factors, among others, affecting the Company’s business are examples of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. More detailed information about these factors is contained under the headings “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in the Company’s periodic reports filed with the SEC, including the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, in connection with any forward-looking statements that may be made by the Company or the Company’s businesses generally.
