October 13, 2017                                                     TIMELY. RELEVANT. NEWSWORTHY. 

Dear NAGGL Members:

Earlier today, through various media outlets, we learned that the FBI had entered the Indianapolis facilities of banc-serv.  From the news stories, “the FBI confirms there is ‘investigative activity in the area related to an ongoing investigation’”.  

All we know is that the FBI is seeking information or documents of interest.  We do not know if that search is related to banc-serv or to one of the  institutions they serve. I respectfully request that NAGGL members not participate in unwarranted gossip. As soon as the association has credible information, we will share it with you.

As always, NAGGL expects each of our members to act in a professionally responsible way.  Program integrity is of utmost importance for us as an industry, and especially for the small businesses that depend on us to provide them access to long-term capital.

Thank you.

Tony Wilkinson
President & CEO

Office of the Inspector General issues Report 17-18, High Risk 7(a) Loan Review Program

"The Office of Inspector General’s (OIG’s) review of five early-defaulted loans identified material lender origination and closing deficiencies that justified denial of the guaranty for one loan totaling $917,107.  We also identified suspicious activity on two purchased loans totaling $1.9 million, resulting in formal referrals to our Investigations Division."

OIG reviewed 5 early-defaulted loans on which SBA honored the guarantees for a total purchase amount of $5.2 million. "We identified material lender origination and closing deficiencies in one of the five loans. Specifically,the lender did not (1) verify the source of the required $675,000 equity injection, (2) perform an adequate credit elsewhere determination, and (3) perform appropriate due diligence on the collateral available to secure the loan." More >
