SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following is a summary of the application. The complete application may be obtained via the Commission’s Web site by searching for the file number, or the applicant using the Company name box, at http:// www.sec.gov/search/search.htm or by calling (202) 551–8090. Applicant’s Representations 1. The Company is an internally managed, non-diversified, closed-end investment company that has elected to be regulated as a business development company (‘‘BDC’’) under the Act. The Company is currently permitted to (i) issue shares of Restricted Stock to certain of its Employees and Nonemployee Directors, and (ii) issue options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock to certain of its Employees and Non-employee Directors, under the terms of the Plans in reliance on the Prior Orders. Applicant seeks to amend the Prior Orders in order to permit the Company, pursuant to the Amended Plans, to withhold shares of the Company’s common stock or purchase shares of the Company’s common stock from its Employees and Non-employee Directors to satisfy tax withholding obligations related to the vesting of Restricted Stock that were or will be granted pursuant to PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30875 the Plans or the Amended Plans.2 In addition, the Company seeks to amend the Prior Orders to permit Participants to pay the exercise price of options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock that were or will be granted to them pursuant to the Plans or the Amended Plans with shares of the Company’s common stock already held by them or pursuant to a net share settlement feature.3 The Company will continue to comply with all of the terms and conditions of the Prior Orders. 2. The Plans and the Amended Plans authorize the issuance to Participants of shares of Restricted Stock, subject to certain forfeiture restrictions, and options that may be subject to forfeiture conditions to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock. On the date that any Restricted Stock vests, such vested shares of the Restricted Stock are released to the Participant and are available for sale or transfer.4 For Participants who are Employees, the value of the vested shares is deemed to be wage compensation for the Employee. As discussed more fully in the application, upon the exercise of certain options the amount by which the current market value of the shares of the Company’s common stock, determined as of the date of exercise, exceeds the exercise price will be treated as ordinary income to the recipient of the option in the year of exercise. Applicant states that any compensation income recognized by an employee generally is subject to Federal withholding for income and employment tax purposes. The Amended Plans provide that each grant or exercise of an Award is subject to the Participant making arrangements to satisfy all applicable Federal, State, and local or other income and employment tax withholding obligations. 3. The Amended Plans will be subject to approval by the Company’s board of directors (‘‘Board’’) as well as the required majority of the Company’s directors with the meaning of section 57(o) of the Act. The Amended Plans explicitly permit the Company to 2 All Employees and Non-Employee Directors who participate in the Plans or the Amended Plans are referred to as ‘‘Participants.’’ 3 Net share settlement allows the Company to deliver only gain shares (i.e., shares of its common stock with a current market value, as the term is defined in the Amended Plans, equal to the option spread upon exercise) directly to the optionee without the need for the optionee to sell shares of the Company’s common stock on the open market or borrow cash from third parties in order to exercise his or her options. 4 During the restriction period (i.e., prior to the lapse of the forfeiture restrictions), the Restricted Stock may not be sold, transferred, pledged, hypothecated, margined, or otherwise encumbered by a Participant.
