Main Street Lending Program

 

Helping mid-size American companies fund their operations, staffing, and growth.

 

Opening Main Street

The CARES Act was signed into law on March 27th, 2020. The legislation allocated $600 billion to help mid-size businesses to maintain their staff and operations. The Main Street Lending Program (MSLP) gives regulated banks a funding facility to extend unsecured loans that are not federally guaranteed. Instead, loans are sold to the Federal Reserve via a 95% participation.

Eligible Businesses

The MSLP is an opportunity for businesses with 15,000 or fewer employees or 2019 annual revenues of $5 billion or less. These bank loans are supported by the federal government. The minimum term loan size is $250,000. It is recommended to have a minimum EBITDA of $125,000 in 2019.

Borrowing Options

The Main Street Lending Program (MSLP) offers three different secured or unsecured 5-year term loan options set at an adjustable rate of LIBOR (1 or 3 month) plus 300 basis points with principal deferred for two years and interest payments deferred for one year for eligible borrowers. Unlike the PPP, MSLP loans are full-recourse and not forgivable. Prepayments do not have a penalty.
