to Summary


The SBA 504 Program offers long-tem, fixed rate financing (10-20 years) at reasonable rates comparable to long-term U.S. Treasury bonds. Typically the 504 loan has a 50-40-10 structure where fifty percent (50%) of the project is financed by a regulated lender that receives a first mortgage position on all project collateral. The 40% is provided by the South Dakota Development Corporation and the remaining 10% is borrower equity. To qualify, the net worth of an eligible business may not exceed $7.5 million and its net profit after taxes must not have exceeded an average of $2.5 million during the previous two years.
