Gemini Investors IV, L.P. proposes to provide equity financing to finance the acquisition of B&H Education, Inc., 501 S. Beverly Drive, Suite 240, Beverly Hills, CA 90212.

The financing is brought within the purview of § 107.730 of the Regulations because Gemini Investors III, L.P., an Associate of Gemini Investors IV, L.P., owns more than ten percent of B&H Education, Inc. Also, the proposed investment by Gemini Investors IV, L.P. will be part of a larger pool of funds to cash out existing shareholders, one of which is its Associate Gemini Investors III, L.P. Lastly, Associates of Gemini Investors IV, L.P. currently serve on the board of directors of B&H Education, Inc.

Therefore, this transaction is considered a financing of an Associate and a self-deal pursuant to 13 CFR 107.730 and requires an exemption. Notice is hereby given that any interested person may submit written comments on the transaction within fifteen days of the date of this publication to Associate Administrator for Investment, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street, SW., Washington, DC 20416.
