Here’s some good news coming out of Washington -- much welcome after all the turmoil in June and July.


First, to help boost middle-market companies, the Small Business Administration and Congress are considering some exciting possible new enhancements to the highly-regarded SBIC program -- a new type of SBIC that can invest equity in early-stage companies, a new higher ceiling on the capital available to SBICs, and special new funding for renewable energy initiatives by SBIC’s portfolio companies.


Second, if your management team qualifies, SBA has dramatically sped up its licensing process both for new funds and existing licensees wishing to form new SBICs.


And third, none of these enhancements will be at all affected by the August 2nd debt crisis resolution.  Did you know that the Small Business Investment Company program actually turns a profit?  It channels billions of dollars into smaller middle-market companies, all coming from sales of debentures to institutional investors, zero from taxpayers’ wallets.  (Only the hard-working administrators are paid by the government.)


In FY2010, the SBIC program issued $1.17 billion in new commitments to SBICs -- and they in turn funneled $2.05 billion into their portfolio companies.  The way it works is that the SBA provides SBICs with incremental funding of 200% (occasionally 300%) of what their GPs have raised from private commitments.


          All this is heating up GPs’ interest in SBICs.  To understand how to meet the

          latest challenges facing both current SBICs and new SBIC applicants, you’ll

          want to make plans now to join us for our encore full‑day conference on

          Thursday, September 15, in New York --


SBICs Are on a Roll --

More Capital, More Choices

New Considerations for PE Investors

On Licensing & Growing an SBIC


          And when you sign up now, you can take advantage of our special Early Bird

          Discount that puts capital back into your pocket.  A generous savings of

          $400 applies to all reservations made by August 5, 2011!


As mentioned, one of the SBA’s new ideas that you’ll hear all about at our conference is the brand-new “early stage SBIC” designed to commit a billion dollars in equity capital over the next five years to special new SBICs that are formed exclusively to invest in venture deals.  This initiative is expected to be launched in late 2011 and enable participants to support high-growth entrepreneurial companies.


Another new project you’ll hear about is “renewable energy debentures” that the SBA will make available to existing SBICs.  Final regulations are expected to be issued by the end of the year, and will enable existing SBICs to more readily acquire equity securities in qualified portfolio companies.


What’s more, the National Association of SBICs is working with Congress to raise the amount of available funding for experienced SBIC managers to $200 million per SBIC and $350 million for a group of commonly managed SBICs.  It’s an initiative that’s being closely watched and would be welcome news for both new and current SBIC investors.


Yet SBICs are not for everyone.  The licensing standards require at least two principal managers with five years of partner level experience making similar investments, with strong proven track records.  SBA also examines the prior record of team members working together to determine if the SBIC will have a cohesive management.


While management teams need to learn to live in a regulatory environment, experienced SBIC managers have found that if you play by both the spirit, as well as the letter of the regulations, the SBA is a good partner.  And the benefits to investor returns can be dramatic.  As a result, a significant number of management teams have formed second, third and fourth SBIC funds.


         The place to hear what lies ahead for SBICs is -- as always -- The Capital



         Please put Thursday, September 15, 2011 on your calendar today, and make

         plans to join us in New York City.


Offering totally fresh content, this conference will cover all the recent enhancements to the SBIC program and identify new directions for the remainder of 2011 plus 2012.  Whether you’re interested in SBIC licensing or investing, seeking deal prospects, meeting SBA and NASBIC officials, or linking up with SBIC managers who can use your professional services, it is the place to be this fall.


For example, you’ll get the big picture on SBICs and Community Reinvestment Act credit -- and how to assure this perk does not become a bone of contention.  While investments in SBICs are eligible for full Community Reinvestment Act credit regardless of location, FDIC regulators have sometimes challenged banks.  We’ll provide the information you need to get these credits coming.


For another example, you’ll find out the mistakes that new SBICs often make, and how you can avoid them through careful positioning of your company and working closely with your assigned SBA analyst.  Done right, the SBIC program is a tremendous boon for PE investors, and will only become more prized as traditional capital stays hard-to-get.


Doug Korey, Mike Staebler, and 20 Other SBIC Authorities

Explain All The Ways You Can Benefit.


To chair this conference, we’ve tapped a well-known SBIC champion, Doug Korey, managing director of Contemporary Healthcare Capital -- the 2010 SBIC of the Year.  Doug is responsible for the day-to-day management and oversight of three licensed Small Business Investment Companies.


Doug has over 20 years of structured finance experience and has originated and closed over $600 million of mezzanine, senior mortgage, and equity healthcare transactions in his career.  Prior to Contemporary Healthcare Capital, Doug was president of Dynex Healthcare Inc., and formed the first long-term care mezzanine fund in the country at Ziegler Capital Co.  He also worked for Alex. Brown & Sons Inc. and AMBAC Indemnity Corp.  Doug holds degrees from Ursinus College and New York University.


Along with Doug, our panel presentations will feature 20 highly knowledgeable SBIC experts, including GPs, lenders, U.S. Small Business Administration administrators, attorneys, consultants and more.  They’ll bring you the tips and techniques for successfully raising PE funds with a new or additional SBIC.


And to bring you expert counsel from a legal perspective, our introductory keynote speaker is Michael B. Staebler, of Pepper Hamilton LLP, the country’s largest and most active Small Business Investment Company practice.  Mike ran an SBIC for six years and has represented more than 190 licensed SBICs since 1972.


Register now for the answers to your most pressing questions --

  • Will the boom in SBIC funding brought on by favorable regulatory changes continue in 2011-2012?
  • What are the biggest challenges facing private equity firms in their quest to gain SBIC licensing?
  • How can SBICs prosper in the face of growing competition?
  • How can you convince your investors that their money is going into sound creditworthy investments?
  • Who will benefit from the planned Early Stage funding program?
  • What can you do to build a team that will meet SBA criteria?
  • What are the potential red flags in the SBA’s eyes that can scuttle an application?

  • What are the key mistakes firms frequently make when seeking SBIC licensing, and how can you put the odds in your favor?
  • Are there obstacles to banks receiving full Community Reinvestment Act credit for their SBIC investments? How can they be surmounted?
  • And much, much more.

Even Our Networking Opportunities Are Comprehensive.


We’ve built in plenty of time over the day when you can meet fellow attendees and featured speakers, swap business cards, and make valuable connections.  With both scheduled session breaks and an open lunch, you’ll have one-on-one access to the people you want to meet -- a good reason why all seats have been filled at our past SBIC conferences.

  • GP who wants to leverage your private capital by the power of two -- or more.
  • GP interested in finding out if your team is eligible for SBIC licensing.
  • LP interested in making investments in the lower middle-market.
  • LP who wants to meet the leading participants in the SBIC space.
  • Banker who wants to assess the possibilities of creating a non-leveraged SBIC -- or is considering investing in SBICs and needs Community Reinvestment Act credit.
  • Pension or Endowment fund manager who wants to invest in a leveraged fund without incurring Unrelated Business Income Tax.
  • Advisor or consultant to GPs or LPs on SBICs.
  • Attorney who advises SBICs.
  • Executive search professional recruiting for the PE industry.
