Congress is hard at work on new legislation that will make the federal government’s Small Business Investment Co. (SBIC) program even more rewarding.


Once HR 3219 is enacted into law, the total amount of capital available to many SBICs will jump to $350 million, up from $225 million today.


Based on anticipated demand, the SBA is ready to commit $4 billion in fresh capital in fiscal 2013 to the SBIC program, a more than one billion dollar increase over the previous period.


If you’re seeking your first or second SBIC, or want to take your existing SBIC to its next stage, you must attend our ENCORE conference, with all‑NEW content.


It’s called “Best Practices for Launching & Managing an SBIC,” and it’s happening in New York City on Thursday, October 11.


And while this conference from The Capital Roundtable is always in high demand, you can receive generous savings of $400 when you make your reservation before August 17!


Two attractive new programs are already in the works at the SBA.  They will complement the standard SBIC debenture licenses which allow an investment firm to have as much as three times leverage from Uncle Sam on the private capital it raises -- as much as $150 million plus a cost-of-living adjustment factor.


The first new program is being called the SBA’s “Early-Stage Innovation Licenses.”  The initial group of applicants is already being considered.   These licenses are designed to provide as much as $50 million more leverage for seed-stage companies that lack positive cash flow. 


And the second new program, being called the “Impact Investment Initiative,” is designed to spur investment in distressed regions -- for example, Michigan’s automotive industry.


To chair this conference, we’re delighted to have an experienced SBIC executive, Garland Tucker, President/CEO of Triangle Capital Corp. in Raleigh, N.C.  Triangle began as an SBIC in a limited partnership structure and has now evolved into a publicly traded Business Development Company (BDC) with $700 million under management in two SBICs.  Triangle has over 70 portfolio companies in a wide variety of industries.


While most SBIC’s are not publicly traded BDC’s, there is a natural affinity between the two structures that can lead to exceptional fundraising opportunities.  That’s why we’re adding to this conference a panel focusing on expanding an SBIC into a BDC. And conversely on how some existing BDCs are applying for SBIC licensing.


Garland co-founded Triangle Capital Corp.’s predecessor companies, Triangle Capital Partners LLC and Triangle Mezzanine Fund LLLP in 2002 and 2003, respectively.  Before co‑founding Triangle, Garland and an outside investor group founded First Travelcorp, a corporate travel services company,   in 1991 and then sold it  in 1999.  Prior to that, he served as Group Vice President of Chemical Bank in New York, and President/CEO of Carolina Securities Corp, a member NYSE.  Garland is a graduate of Washington & Lee University and Harvard Business School.


20 SBIC Authorities Get You Up To Speed And Set To Go


With our outstanding access to SBIC leaders, 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 provide you with the unwritten rules and little-known tips that you won’t find on the SBA website or read in a government instruction manual.


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.


The Capital Roundtable is grateful to Mike Staebler and to Pepper Hamilton for sponsoring this outstanding event.  It’s due in great part to their collaboration that we  can promise that this conference is going to be so worthwhile for you. 

We’ll explain why more and more large institutional investors such as Hamilton Lane and Credit Suisse are supporting SBICs -- a sea change from a few years back.  A growing number of larger PE firms -- such as technology investment giant Silver Lake Partners -- have recently queued up affiliated entities which are licensed as SBICs.


We’ll talk about how to properly position your fund application in the face of growing competition.  You’ll discover what SBA officials want to see -- and not see.  Why it’s so important to demonstrate how your team has a successful history of working together.  And which dozen strategies can help your application rise to the top of the pile.


Plus you’ll learn why it’s so important to have knowledgeable well-connected advisors by your side whatever you do -- because if the SBA doesn’t think you have a successful track record or experienced team, your license will likely be denied.  


The biggest mistakes new applicants make is trying to do things on their own, and we’ll point you to the help you need.


Register now to get the important answers to put you in good stead for 2013 --


  • What are the biggest challenges facing PE firms who want to launch SBICs?
  • What is the current progress in Congress of new SBIC legislation?
  • How can you best position your team to gain acceptance as an SBIC?
  • What kind of track record is likely to make your application stand out?
  • What are the key mistakes that firms make most frequently when seeking SBIC licensing?
  • How is the Early Stage Innovation program being received by the investment community?
  • Are there specific investment strategies that work best for new SBICs?
  • What techniques do experienced SBICs rely on for successful operation?
  • How can you benefit from growing interest among institutional investors?
  • What are the reasons an SBIC may wish to convert to a BDC?
  • And much, much more.


The Place To Network With The Best Minds In The Business.


It’s no wonder our past SBIC conferences have been filled to capacity.  Our full-day conference agenda includes both session breaks and an open lunch, where you can meet fellow attendees and featured speakers to exchange ideas and business cards.


You should attend this conference if you are a --


  • GP who wants to leverage your private capital two, even three times.
  • 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 want 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.


We also encourage you to attend our afternoon pre-conference Workshop the day before on Wednesday, October 10 --


How to Launch Your First SBIC in 2013 --

The Basics & the Nuances
