Bay Capital Funding, LP, (“BCF”) will invest in Small Business Investment Company funds (“SBICs”)

Seeking $100-200 million to invest in 10-15 SBICs over a two-year period

BCF founder Greg Mulligan has over 30 years of experience (including managing three SBICs) and an excellent investment track record

All investment sourcing, due diligence, monitoring and fund administration will be handled internally

BCF is unaware of any other fund-of-funds with BCF’s level of experience focused on the SBIC community



SBIC Funds

The SBIC program enables SBIC funds to access government leverage (debentures) at rates not available from traditional lending sources

SBIC Funds are generally eligible for two turns of leverage on their private capital, meaning an SBIC Fund with $87.5 million in private capital can access the maximum $175 million in SBA leverage for a total fund size of $262.5 million. SBA debentures carry 10-year terms and priced off 10-year US Treasury bonds – total pricing has ranged from 1.5% – 3% over the past ten years

As of of 2020, nearly 300 licensed SBIC funds managed almost $30 billion of capital – nearly every state has an SBIC fund

Due to its extensive experience, insights into the SBIC program, and long-term relationships with many fellow managers, BCF believes it will be well-positioned to identify the most promising SBICs

As a fund-of-funds, BCF can help many types of alternative investors gain access to the SBIC fund community and the lower middle market asset class


High Quality Opportunities

BCF anticipates having ample high-quality fund investment opportunities


the SBA has a highly selective application process to become a licensed SBIC fund, which takes about 12-18 months

the SBA conducts intensive due diligence and only fund managers with extensive track records are approved

there is a consistent stream of new SBIC funds – around 20 each with 38 currently in the approved SBA pipeline

charge-offs of total SBA debentures to SBIC funds are extremely low, typically well under 1% per year

the SBA conducts field audits annually on each SBIC fund
