MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., March 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marlin Business Services Corp. (Nasdaq:MRLN) today reported fourth quarter 2010 net income of $1.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Net income for the full-year 2010 was $5.7 million, or $0.44 per diluted share.

"We're very excited with the momentum build of our business," says Daniel P. Dyer, Marlin's CEO. "This quarter we posted another solid gain in new lease asset origination and customer account growth.

As an industry leader, our service oriented approach to serving customers will pave the way to continued profitable growth in the future," says Dyer.
