    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget a request for extension of the previously approved 
collection of information discussed below.
    Section 17(d) (15 U.S.C. 80a-17(d)) of the Investment Company Act 
of 1940 (``Act'') authorizes the Commission to adopt rules that protect 
funds and their security holders from overreaching by affiliated 
persons when the fund and the affiliated person participate in any 
joint enterprise or other joint arrangement or profit-sharing plan. 
Rule 17d-1 under the Act (17 CFR 270.17d-1) prohibits funds and their 
affiliated persons from participating in a joint enterprise, unless an 
application regarding the transaction has been filed with and approved 
by the Commission. Paragraph (d)(3) of the rule provides an exemption 
from this requirement for any loan or advance of credit to, or 
acquisition of securities or other property of, a small business 
concern, or any agreement to do any of the foregoing (``investments'') 
made by a small business investment company (``SBIC'') and an 
affiliated bank, provided that reports about the investments are made 
on forms the Commission may prescribe. Rule 17d-2 (17 CFR 270.17d-2) 
designates Form N-17D-1 (17 CFR 274.200) (``form'') as the form for 
reports required by rule 17d-1.
    SBICs and their affiliated banks use form N-17D-1 to report any 
contemporaneous investments in a small business concern. The form 
provides shareholders and persons seeking to make an informed decision 
about investing in an SBIC an opportunity to learn about transactions 
of the SBIC that have the potential for self dealing and other forms of 
overreaching by affiliated persons at the expense of shareholders.
    Form N-17D-1 requires SBICs and their affiliated banks to report 
identifying information about the small business concern and the 
affiliated bank. The report must include, among other things, the 
SBIC's and affiliated bank's outstanding investments in the small 
business concern, the use of the proceeds of the investments made 
during the reporting period, any changes in the nature and amount of 
the affiliated bank's investment, the name of any affiliated person of 
the SBIC or the affiliated bank (or any affiliated person of the 
affiliated person of the SBIC or the affiliated bank) who has any 
interest in the transactions, the basis of the affiliation, the nature 
of the interest, and the consideration the affiliated person has 
received or will receive.
    Up to two SBICs may file the form in any year.\1\ The Commission 
estimates the burden of filling out the form is approximately one hour 
per response and would likely be completed by an accountant or other 
professional. Based on past filings, the Commission estimates that no 
more than one SBIC is likely to use the form each year. Most of the 
information requested on the form should be readily available to the 
SBIC or the affiliated bank in records kept in the ordinary course of 
business, or with respect to the SBIC, pursuant to the recordkeeping 
requirements under the Act. Commission staff estimates that it should 
take approximately one hour for an accountant or other professional to 
complete the form.\2\ The estimated total annual burden of filling out 
the form is 1 hour, at an estimated total annual cost of $201.\3\ The 
Commission will not keep responses on Form N-17D-1 confidential.

Commission.
    \2\ This estimate of hours is based on past conversations with 
representatives of SBICs and accountants that have filed the form.
    \3\ Commission staff estimates that the annual burden would be 
incurred by a senior accountant with an average hourly wage rate of 
$201 per hour. This wage is from SIFMA's Management & Professional 
Earnings in the Securities Industry 2013, modified to account for an 
1800-hour work-year and inflation, and multiplied by 5.35 to account 
for bonuses, firm size, employee benefits, and overhead.
