A Small Business Investment Company (“SBIC”) is a privately owned and operated investment fund that is licensed by SBA. As a condition of licensing, SBICs are required to make long-term investments in U.S. small businesses and submit to SBA regulation (the “SBIC Program”).

SBA is presently seeking new Debenture issuing applicants. In fiscal year 2017 SBA licensed 15 new SBICs, of which 11 issue Debentures; in fiscal year 2018 SBA licensed 25 new SBICs, 21 of which issue Debentures; and in fiscal year 2019 SBA licensed 10 new SBICs, of which 7 issue Debentures; and in fiscal year 2020, SBA licensed 26 new SBICs, of which 21 issue Debentures.

Most applicants to the SBIC Program seek to be licensed as an SBIC in order to access federally-backed Leverage provided by SBA which can accelerate returns on capital invested in the SBIC by private sector sources. This makes the SBIC Program attractive to fund managers seeking to leverage their private investment capital at low cost.
