SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Export Express Pilot Program was established as a subprogram of the Agency's SBAExpress Pilot Program. It was established in 1998 to assist current and prospective small exporters, particularly those needing revolving lines of credit. Export Express generally conforms to the streamlined procedures of SBAExpress and carriers SBA's full 75-85 percent guaranty. The maximum loan amount under this Program is limited to $250,000. The extension of this Program until November 30, 2005, will allow the SBA to more fully evaluate the results and impact of the Program and to consider possible changes and enhancements to the Program. It will also allow SBA to further consult with its lending partners and the small business community about the Program.
