NYSE: MAIN 3 Business Development Companies (BDCs) M A I N NYSE
NYSE: MAIN 4 Overview M A I N NYSE Created by the Small Business Investment Incentive Act of 1980 (the 1980 Amendments) as a result of a perceived crisis in the capital markets in the 1970s Private equity and venture capital firms believed the small private investment company exemption (Section 3(c)(1) of 1940 Act) limited their capacity to provide financing to small, growing businesses Provided Regulated Investment Company (RIC) status in 1990 Special type of closed-end fund that: Provides small, growing companies access to capital Enables private equity funds to access the public capital markets Enables retail investors to participate in the upside of pre-IPO investing with complete liquidity Hybrid between an operating company and an investment company
NYSE: MAIN 5 Key Market Role M A I N NYSE Retail Investors Public Equity Capital Markets Accredited Investors Business Development Companies Small and Middle-Market Businesses Investment Company Act of 1940 Private Equity Firms
NYSE: MAIN 6 Benefits of BDCs as an Investment Vehicle M A I N NYSE Access to public capital markets Shares are traded on national exchanges Flow-through tax treatment as RIC Reduced burden under 1940 Act, as compared to closed-end funds Restrictions on leverage Restrictions on affiliated transactions External model permits management fee and carried interest incentive fee structure Publicly available financial information though quarterly reporting Portfolio is typically diversified Reduces risk typically associated with private equity investments
NYSE: MAIN 7 BDC Industry Renaissance M A I N NYSE Prior to 2003, the largest BDCs were primarily internally managed Choice reflected the success of the internally managed, income producing BDC model In 2004, Apollo Investment Corporation raised $930 million in less than three months which ignited the growth in the BDC industry There has been a steady stream of BDC IPOs since that period Approximately 35 internally and externally managed BDCs make up the current BDC space; 29 of which are the subject of frequent research Current BDC space has average Market Capitalization of $565 million with the 10 largest BDCs having a combined Market Capitalization of $12.9 billion* * As of June 1, 2012.
NYSE: MAIN 8 Non-Traded BDC Structures M A I N NYSE The first registered, continuously-offered unlisted BDC, FS Investment Corporation, commenced fundraising in 2008; since then, these fund vehicles have grown rapidly and gained the attention of potential sponsors and the capital markets Longer offering period with periodic closings (as opposed to IPO) Subject to individual state registration requirements for public offerings, which can be time-consuming and expensive Less susceptible to capital raise constraints caused by market downturns due to ability to adjust periodic offering price to remain at or above NAV Lack of price fluctuation attractive to yield-based investors Not fully liquid: exit through periodic repurchase offers (often at discount to NAV)
NYSE: MAIN 9 Eligible BDC Investments M A I N NYSE A BDC must invest 70% of its assets in good BDC assets 70% basket includes securities issued by an eligible portfolio company, as defined in Section 2(a)(46), which includes: U.S. issuers that are neither an investment company as defined in section 3 (other than a wholly-owned SBIC) nor a company which would be an investment company except for the exclusion from the definition of investment company in section 3(c) and (i) do not have any class of securities listed on a national securities exchange; or (ii) have a class of securities listed on a national securities exchange, but have an aggregate market value outstanding voting and non-voting common equity of less than $250 million A BDC can generally invest with flexibility in bad assets that do not fall within the 70% basket The SEC Staff has never been called upon to consider whether utilizing a specific strategy for the entire 30% basket, e.g., investing solely in foreign companies, might run afoul of the intent of Section 55(a)
NYSE: MAIN 10 BDC Borrowing Limitations M A I N NYSE BDCs must have 200% asset coverage (Total Assets/Total Debt) For example, a BDC with $50 in equity can borrow up to $50 A BDC would be able to invest $100 in growing businesses Other investment companies are restricted to a 300% asset coverage requirement with respect to issuing debt BDCs may exclude leverage at the SBIC level if the SEC grants exemptive relief $50 Debt $50 Equity $50 Equity $25 Debt $50 Equity $50 Equity
NYSE: MAIN 11 How do BDCs Value Their Assets? M A I N NYSE Investments are reported at fair value FASB ASC 820 – Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Fair Value – Price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at measurement date Regulated investment companies also governed by definition of value in Investment Company Act of 1940 further interpreted in SEC Codification of Financial Reporting section – fair value as determined in good faith by the board of directors
NYSE: MAIN 12 Tax Considerations for BDCs M A I N NYSE A BDC may elect to be taxed as a RIC under the Internal Revenue Code Taxation as a RIC Allows pass through tax treatment for income and capital gains that are distributable to shareholders A BDC must distribute at least 90% of its investment income to shareholders annually The BDC may retain, distribute or deem distribute capital gains BDC must meet minimum source of income requirements annually and meet requirements on a quarterly basis with respect to portfolio diversification Conversion to RIC status Formation considerations – Built-in gains
