60-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) Status, 33198-33199 [2017-15114]

Download as PDF 33198 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 19, 2017 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES Based on SBA’s expectations as to future Pool performance, SBA has determined that, in order to lower the costs associated with SBA’s Secondary Market Loan Pooling Program, it is necessary to increase the minimum maturity ratio—in other words, to reduce the difference between the shortest and the longest remaining term of the guaranteed portions of loans in a Pool. A higher minimum maturity ratio will decrease the difference between the amortization rates of the guaranteed portions of loans in a Pool. This will cause the cash flows from the guaranteed portions of loans in the Pool to be more homogenous, and will more closely match the amortization rate of the Pool Certificate. This is an important driver in reducing the cost of SBA’s timely payment guaranty on Pool Certificates. Therefore, effective October 1, 2017, all guaranteed portions of loans in a Pool presented for settlement with SBA’s Fiscal Transfer Agent will be required to have a minimum maturity ratio of at least 94% for Standard Pools and WAC Pools. SBA has monitored Pools formed over the last 6 months, and has observed that many existing Pools have a minimum maturity ratio of at least 94%. SBA will continue to monitor loan and pool characteristics and will provide notification of additional changes as necessary. It is important to note that there is no change to SBA’s obligation to honor its guaranty of the amounts owed to Registered Holders of Pool Certificates and that such guaranty continues to be backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. This program change will be incorporated as necessary into SBA’s Secondary Market documents. As indicated above, this change will be effective for Pools with an issue date on or after October 1, 2017, and will modify any previous description or guidance regarding the minimum maturity ratio for Standard Pools or WAC Pools. SBA is making this change pursuant to Section 5(g)(2) of the Small Business Act, 15 U.S.C. 634 (g)(2). Authority: 15 U.S.C. 634 (g)(2). William M.
