Nov. 17, 2010 - PRLog -- New federal rules more than double the size of permitted loans for the SBA guaranty program. This  creates an unprecedented opportunity for small business lenders to grow their business. However, converting the huge increase in 7(a) and 504 loan limits into profitable loans requires preparation. Underwriting and managing $5 million loans means marketing, sales, underwriting, back office, and servicing all need to be adjusted.

This Coleman Webinar will identify the innovative management mindset plus the skills and infrastructure needed to profitably make the larger loans. Three national experts on SBA loans and small business lending will address these questions:

• Prospects: What industries and types of companies will now fit into the much larger credit box?
• Marketing: How do I reach these new potential customers?  
• Underwriting:  How do how I learn the industry outlook and the strength of an applicant's competitive position? Do I need to move beyond a local industry assessment to a regional or even national assessment?
• Compensation: How does compensation for sales and management  need to be adjusted when the loan size more than doubles?
• Processing: Has my SBA submission software been updated to incorporate the larger loan sizes? Do larger loans require additional documentation for the SBA?
• Servicing: How is it different for a $5 million loan?

In addition, you can pose your own question by asking it directly during the webinar.  The participating experts are:

• Chris Hurn, Chief Executive Officer/Cofounder, Mercantile Capital Corporation
