SBA Prepay Commentary

April 2020 SBA Prepayment Speeds

April 2020

Last month, we anticipated many businesses would elect to keep excess liquidity in reserves due to concern about the coronavirus’s economic impact. While a slowdown was to be expected, we certainly did not anticipate one to this type of extent. The effects of nationwide social distancing measures were reflected in prepayments, as speeds on both Equipment and Real-Estate loan pools experienced widespread decreases for the month of April.

Equipment loan pools dropped from 17.0 to 12.0 CPR, with every vintage experiencing a decrease as well. Real-Estate loan pools went down from 18.4 to 13.4, as all but two individual vintages experienced reductions in speeds.

Looking forward is always tough, and even more so now. I always find it helpful to focus on what we do know.
