Marlin Business Services is considering a forward swap arrangement with its investment bank, Deutsche Bank Securities, to lock in the current rates while it preps its next securitization, executives said during Marlin's first-ever quarter-end conference call since going public in November.

The company is hoping to enter the market with its annual $250 million range portfolio of small-ticket equipment leases within the next two months. Marlin had discussed with its equity investors the possibility of an interest-rate lock for a 60-day period. The forward swap arrangement would allow the company to price off of today's benchmark rates, adding a bit more flexibility in timing its launch.
