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.
