Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 99 . Commercial and Industrial Financing
Section 350. Participation requirements

3 AAC 99.350. Participation requirements

(a) The originator of a loan shall initially retain at least a 10 percent share of the principal amount of the loan and shall not sell, transfer or permit prepayment or other early retirement of any portion of its participation interest without the permission of the authority.

(b) The initial rate of interest on the authority's participation in a real property or tangible personal property loan will be set at the time the authority issues a loan commitment at a rate equal to the sum of the "true interest cost rate" and the "authority cost amount". The rate of interest on the originator's portion of a loan is set by the originator, but may not exceed a market rate.

(c) The authority will, in its discretion, require prepayment fees on its participation share in a real property or tangible personal property loan in amounts and for a period of time it determines appropriate, except that the authority will not charge a prepayment fee later than five years from the date the authority funds its participation.

(d) The authority will, in its discretion, approve a modification of the interest rate and loan term on the authority's portion of a loan under 3 AAC 99.300 - 3 AAC 99.390 as follows:

(1) effective upon the authority's approval of a written request from the borrower and originator for an interest rate modification or extension of loan term, or both, the authority will

(A) change the interest rate to either a current variable interest rate published by the authority, or the current fixed interest rate published by the authority for a loan with a term equal to the original term of the authority's portion of the loan, plus extensions of the original term, if any, as allowed in (B) of this paragraph; and

(B) extend the loan term up to the maximum term permitted under 3 AAC 99.330(e) and 3 AAC 99.340(e) , except that in no case will the total aggregate loan term exceed the maximum term as permitted under 3 AAC 99.330(e) and 3 AAC 99.340(e) ;

(2) the authority will, in its discretion, adjust the scheduled payment on the loan to reflect a change in interest rate or loan term, or both, in order to maintain the proper loan amortization;

(3) upon authority approval of a modification described in either (1)(A) or (1)(B) of this subsection, the originator must remit to the authority a one percent fee, calculated on the outstanding principal balance of the authority's portion of the loan;

(4) the borrow and originator may request modification of the interest rate and loan term more than once during the term of the loan, subject to the maximum loan term permitted in 3 AAC 99.330(e) and 3 AAC 99.340(e) , and remittance to the authority of a one percent fee calculated as described in (3) of this subsection for each such modification.

(e) In this section,

(1) "true interest cost rate" means the true interest cost, as determined by the authority and expressed as an annual rate of interest, that would apply to the authority's taxable bonds if the authority were issuing taxable bonds to provide funding of the loan;

(2) "authority cost amount" means an amount, determined by the authority and expressed as an annual rate of interest, that is necessary to pay for the allocable expenses of operation, costs of issuance, and loan servicing with respect to loans for which interest rates are determined under this section.
