Morris Business Development Company (“MBDE”) has filed a Form NT-54A to elect to be regulated as a Business Development Company (“BDC”) as outlined in the Investment Company Act of 1940. Current economic and financial market conditions along with the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulations have created a new relevance for this financial growth model for American Business.

Alternative financial strategies for growth through reverse merger with an existing public company shell or an initial public offering (“IPO”) as discussed above in the sections (Is a Reverse Merger, IPO or BDC Spin-Out the Best Way for You to Raise Capital?” have become more difficult to evaluate due to a lack of underwriter interest and SEC scrutiny for fraud and manipulation.

The Morris Business Development Company (“MBDE”) business model focuses both on your needs and on the investment community needs that will feed your growth in full compliance with SEC requirements.

And, the intrinsic value of your company is increased by fostering growth in revenue, profits and dividends. The main services provided to our Portfolio companies to help you are as follows:

*raise capital for the initial stages of development as a private or public company

Support from Private Equity Firm Partners      

Some of the MorrisBDC portfolio investments will also be supported by our Private Equity Firm partners, Morris Capital Fund I and other independent private funds. Both affiliated and non-affiliated funds may participate in funding the spin-off and mentoring process followed by a larger cash investment round or PIPE financing.

The (“PIPE’) or “Private Investment in Public Equity” by funds is predicated on the portfolio company’s stock being publicly traded. Once questions of due diligence and portfolio company valuation are answered, then significant additional capital should become available to our public portfolio company versus any private stock company. In addition, the value of the public portfolio company should be significantly higher as a public versus private owned company due to the securities higher price earnings (“PE”) multiple generally associated with more liquid investments that can be sold into the public stock market. Further, earlier investments in the portfolio company by private equity fund should help maintain interest by the funds in additional equity investment along with funding other events that increase the value of the portfolio company.
