Interesting company - but debt appears to be very high relative to equity.
Comment on that?

They are a specialty finance company. They use leverage... interesting that you comment on the ratio, as it is one of the lowest in its industry... meaning that Marlin is extremely conservative relative to its peers... they could "afford" to use even more debt and chose not to.
