In the event that a borrower defaults, the lender has the option to receive from SBA the face value of the outstanding guaranteed balance.9 Proceeds from the liquidation

of a firm’s assets and any subsequent recoveries are then split in proportion to the guarantee percentage. (For example, if the SBA guarantees 70 percent of the loan, it

has claim to 70 percent of recoveries.)

In the Express program, unlike regular 7(a) loans, a borrower’s assets are generally liquidated upon default and before lenders submit the loan to SBA. The lender receives all proceeds from liquidation of the borrower’s assets, and any subsequent recoveries after the lender submits the loan to SBA are split between SBA and the lender according to the guarantee percentage.

For example, assume that a borrower who has a loan with a $100,000 balance and a 50 percent guarantee defaults and that the borrower’s assets are worth $60,000. In the regular 7(a) program, the lender submits the defaulted loan to SBA and receives $50,000 (the guaranteed portion of the loan balance). When the borrower’s assets are later liquidated, the lender and SBA each receive 50 percent of the assets, or $30,000. The net loss to SBA is $20,000 (the $50,000 payment to the lender minus the $30,000 recovered from the borrower’s assets), and the net loss to the lender is also $20,000 (the $100,000 loan balance minus the $50,000 received from SBA and the $30,000 recovered from the borrower’s assets).

If the loan was made through the Express program, the lender liquidates the borrower’s assets (worth $60,000) and then submits the remaining loan balance of $40,000 to SBA. The lender then receives $20,000 (the guaranteed portion of the loan balance) from SBA. The net loss to SBA is $20,000, and the net loss to the lender is also $20,000. If an additional $1,000 is later recovered, the lender and SBA would each receive $500.

$375,000 SBA 504 LOAN - SBA OIC CASH SETTLEMENT

$375,000 SBA 504 LOAN - SBA OIC CASH SETTLEMENT

Client personally guaranteed SBA 504 loan balance of $375,000.  Debt had been cross-referred to Treasury at the time we got involved with the case.  We successfully had debt recalled to the SBA where we then presented an SBA OIC that was accepted for $58,000.

$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture.  After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars.  We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA).  As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.

$505,000 SBA 7(A) LOAN - FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT LITIGATION (CALIFORNIA)

Clients borrowed and personally guaranteed an SBA 7a loan.  Clients defaulted on the SBA loan and were sued in federal district court for breach of contract.  The SBA lender demanded the Client pledge several personal real estate properties as collateral to reinstate and secure the defaulted SBA loan.  We were subsequently hired to intervene and aggressively defend the lawsuit.  After several months of litigation, our attorneys negotiated a reinstatement of the SBA loan and a structured workout that did not involve any liens against the Client's personal real estate holdings.
