Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 6668 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 23 / Tuesday, February 4, 2014 / Notices Class B limited partners to the Early Stage SBIC is reduced dollar for dollar as the parent fund contributes capital to the SBIC. The Model LPA contains required provisions for drop-down funds. f. The Class B limited partners’ commitments to the SBIC applicant must be expressed as a specific dollar amount (not just as the ‘‘proportionate share’’ of parent fund’s commitment). g. The total dollar amount of Class B commitments must be equal to the Class A limited partner’s unfunded commitment to the SBIC. SBA will not require Class B commitments if the SBIC’s Regulatory Capital will not include any unfunded commitments from the Class A limited partner. C. Capitalization. Applicants must raise the minimum $20 million in Regulatory Capital by the time the license application is submitted. 1. Capital commitments from limited partners must be made directly to the SBIC (and its parent fund, in the case of a drop-down) with no intermediaries involved. 2. The Early Stage SBIC applicant must have the unconditional ability to legally enforce collection of each capital commitment. 3. Capital Certificate. Capital commitments must be documented in the capital certificate (Exhibit K of SBA Form 2183) and comply with the following: a. A signed Capital Certificate must be submitted with the license application. b. The only permitted condition on private capital commitments is: i. Receipt of Early Stage SBIC license. c. Individual investors must list primary residence address, not a business address. d. Street addresses are required (no P.O. Box addresses). 4. A dual commitment may be obtained to back up the commitment of any direct investor in the SBIC who is not an Institutional Investor. 5. Capital commitments by the principals, general partner, or their affiliates must be payable in cash when called (cannot be satisfied with notes or management fee waivers). D. General Partner 1. All principals must: a. Hold direct ownership interests in and be the direct individual managers of the general partner, with no intervening entities. b. Receive carried interest directly from the general partner; for drop-down SBICs, carried interest may be received from the parent fund’s general partner. 2. A maximum of 25% of the carried interest may be allocated to nonprincipals. VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:14 Feb 03, 2014 Jkt 232001 3. Any provision to remove or terminate a principal must be spelled out within the general partner’s organizational document and must not be tied to events occurring under other agreements (e.g., a principal’s employment agreement with the management company). E. Investment Advisor (‘‘Management Company’’). Ownership of the Management Company that is highly disproportionate to the ownership of the general partner (e.g., one principal is the 100% owner) is not viewed favorably by SBA, but may be acceptable if there are adequate checks and balances on the powers of the dominant owner. Areas that cannot be subject to unilateral decision-making include the following: 1. Power to remove or terminate other principals. 2. Power to change the composition of the Early Stage SBIC’s investment committee. V. Early Stage SBIC Licensing Evaluation Criteria A. General Criteria. SBA will evaluate an Early Stage SBIC license applicant based on the submitted application materials, Investment Committee interviews with the applicant’s management team, and the results of background investigations, public record searches, and other due diligence conducted by SBA and other Federal agencies. SBA will evaluate an Early Stage SBIC license applicant based on the same factors applicable to other license applicants, as set forth in 13 CFR § 107.305, with particular emphasis on managers’ skills and experience in evaluating and investing in early stage companies. As discussed in the Final Rule, evaluation criteria fall into four areas: (A) Management Team; (B) Track Record; (C) Proposed Investment Strategy; and (D) Organizational Structure and Fund Economics. You should review these regulations prior to completing your MAQ. B. Managing SBA Leverage. SBA will pay particular attention to how a team’s investment strategy works with proposed SBA leverage. Early Stage Debenture leverage either requires a 5 year interest and annual charge reserve from the date of issue or is structured with an original issue discount that covers the interest and annual charges for the first 5 years. In either case, Early Stage SBICs must identify how quarterly interest payments beginning in the 6th year from Debenture issue will be met. Sources of liquidity to make interest payments may include (a) private capital; (b) realizations; or (c) current income. As part of your plan of operations, you should carefully PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consider how your investment strategy will work with SBA leverage and make appropriate suggestions to manage risk. Risk mitigation strategies might include making some investments in current pay instruments, taking down less than a full tier of leverage (i.e., leverage less than 100% of Regulatory Capital), taking leverage down later in the fund’s life, lowering management expenses, and reserving more private capital. The strategies you choose to employ should be appropriate for your management team’s track record and investment strategy. C. SBA Diversification Rights. Per 13 CFR 107.320, SBA reserves the right to maintain diversification among Early Stage SBICs with respect to (i) the year in which they commence operations (‘‘vintage year’’) and (ii) geographic location. 1. Vintage Year Diversification. Vintage year has a major impact on the return expectations of a fund and excessive concentration in a single year could substantially increase program risk. Therefore, SBA reserves the right, when licensing Early Stage SBICs, to maintain diversification across vintage years. SBA believes that it will be able to manage vintage year diversification through its call process. If SBA receives an extraordinary number of qualified applicants in FY 2014, it may not approve all such applicants. 2. Geographic Diversification. All Early Stage SBICs must first meet SBA’s basic licensing criteria. After those criteria are met, SBA reserves the right to maintain diversification among Early Stage SBICs with respect to the geographic location in which the Early Stage SBIC expects to invest.
