Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 7 / Monday, January 12, 2015 / Notices 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 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Jan 09, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 2015, 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.
