Comment on liquidity of the business & guarantors Comment on the specific weakness of loan Lack of collateral Longer term needed Credit weakness Industry the bank wouldnt normally lend in Startup or projections based cash flow Any other reason that the borrower could not otherwise get the loan

Specifically state that without the government guaranty the borrower would not be able to obtain their financing on reasonable terms from non-Federal, non-State, or non-local government sources, including from the Lender Businesses Engaged in Illegal Activity Updated to clarify rules around marijuana related businesses Marijuana-Related Businesses: Because federal law prohibits the distribution and sale of marijuana, financial transactions involving a marijuana-related business would generally involve funds derived from illegal activity. Therefore, businesses that derive revenue from marijuanarelated activities or that support the end-use of marijuana may be ineligible for SBA financial assistance. Whether a business is eligible is determined by the nature of the businesss specific operations. The following businesses are ineligible: Direct Marijuana Business -- a business that grows, produces, processes, distributes, or sells marijuana or marijuana products, edibles,

or derivatives, regardless of the amount of such activity. This applies to recreational use and medical use even if the business is legal under local or state law where the applicant business is or will be located. 9 Eligible or Not Eligible? Indirect Marijuana Business -- a business that derived any of its gross revenue for the previous year (or, if a start-up, projects to derive any of its gross revenue for the next year) from sales to Direct Marijuana Businesses of products or services that could reasonably be determined to aid in the use, growth, enhancement or other development of marijuana. Examples of Indirect Marijuana Businesses include businesses that provide testing services, or sell or install grow lights, hydroponic or other specialized equipment, to one or more Direct Marijuana Businesses; and businesses that advise or counsel Direct Marijuana Businesses on the specific legal, financial/accounting, policy, regulatory or other issues associated with establishing, promoting, or operating a Direct Marijuana

Business. However, for purposes of illustration, SBA does not consider a plumber who fixes a sink for a Direct Marijuana Business or a tech support company that repairs a laptop for such a business to be aiding in the use, growth, enhancement or other development of marijuana. Indirect Marijuana Businesses also include businesses that sell smoking devices, pipes, bongs, inhalants, or other products if the products are primarily intended or designed for marijuana use or if the business markets the products for such use. 10 HEMP Legal Less than 0.3% THC Consistent with the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (Public Law No. 115-334), a business that grows, produces, processes,

distributes or sells products made from hemp (as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946) is eligible. 11 SOP 50 10 5 (K) Updates for both 7(a) and 504 Subpart A System for Award Management (SAM) excluded parties list Chapter 1, paragraph II.E.1 and Chapter 3, paragraph II.B.2 (pages 13,14 & 52) Ethics guidance for review of loan financing if government employee of GS 13 or higher involved

Chapter 2, paragraph II.D.8:

Clarified guidance related to the credit elsewhere Chapter 2, paragraph II.E.1: Incorporated the policy change included in SBA Policy Notice 5000-17057 to increase the threshold for Lender review of liquidity from 10 percent to 20 percent for owners of the equity of the Applicant, and provided additional guidance on addressing credit elsewhere in the Lenders credit memorandum. Chapter 2, paragraph II.E.2-3: 13 SOP 50 10 5 (K) Updates for both Subparts B and C 7(a) and 504 Added guidance that if an Environmental Professional recommends proceeding directly from the Transaction Screen to a Phase II

(bypassing the Phase I), and the Lender concurs, the Lender must seek in advance an exception to policy from the SBA Environmental Committee. Chapter 4, paragraph V.E.4: (page 207 ) Clarified that the Lender must disclose 100% of the Applicants ownership on SBA Form(s) 1919/1244 and 100% of the Applicants ownership also must be entered in the E-Tran system in order to submit a loan application. Each owner must be identified in the E-Tran system.
