SBIC – Small Business Investment Company

The SBIC program is an investment program that increases access to capital for growth stage businesses. Trust Financing works with select SBIC firms on deals or transactions that are larger than the limits of the SBA 7A or 504 programs.

SBIC small business financings are primarily in the form of subordinated debt with equity enhancements.  SBIC financings to small businesses typically range from $2.5 million to $10 million. Each SBIC has its own investment profile in terms of targeted industry, geography, company maturity, and the type and size of financing the SBIC will provide to small businesses.

The Trust Financing Solutions team works with SBIC investors when needed to get the deal done.

SBA 504 loan program

The SBA 504/CDC loan program partners with Certified Development Companies (CDCs) to provide long-term financing to purchase major fixed assets.  A 504/CDC loan provides up to 50% funding from a commercial lender and up to 40% funding from the CDC office in your area. The borrower will have to provide at least 10% as equity.
