INTRODUCTION

A. Summary of Application

On July 13, 2021, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) issued an order under Sections 17(d) and 57(i) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”),1 and Rule 17d-1 thereunder, permitting certain joint transactions otherwise prohibited by Sections 17(d) and 57(a)(4) of the 1940 Act and Rule 17d-1 thereunder, as described more fully therein (the “Prior Order”).2 The Prior Order permits certain business development companies and closed-end management investment companies to co-invest in portfolio companies with each other and with affiliated investment entities.

The Applicants (defined below) hereby seek an amended order (the “Amended Order”) from the Commission under Section 57(i) of the 1940 Act, and Rule 17d-1 thereunder to extend the relief granted in the Prior Order to incorporate the temporary relief granted by the Commission on April 8, 2020.3 Applicants propose to amend the term “Follow-On Investment” to mean (i) with respect to a Regulated Fund, an additional investment in the same issuer in which the Regulated Fund is currently invested; or (ii) with respect to an Affiliated Fund, (X) an additional investment in the same issuer in which the Affiliated Fund and at least one Regulated Fund are currently invested; or (Y) an investment in an issuer in which at least one Regulated Fund is currently invested but in which the Affiliated Fund does not currently have an investment.

B. Applicants

 

   

First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC, Inc. (“FCRD”), a Delaware corporation which is an externally managed, closed end, non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be regulated as a BDC (defined below) under the Act.

Unless otherwise indicated, all section and rule references herein are to the 1940 Act and rules promulgated thereunder.

2 

See First Eagle Alternative Capital BDC, Inc., et al. (File No. 812-15151) Investment Company Act Rel. Nos. 34301 (June 15, 2021) (notice) and 34330 (July 13, 2021) (order).

3 

BDC Temporary Exemptive Order, Investment Company Act Rel. Nos. 33837 (April 8, 2020) (order) (extension granted January 5, 2021 and further extension granted April 22, 2021) (the “Temporary Relief”).

First Eagle Investment Management, LLC (“First Eagle”), a Delaware limited liability company and an investment adviser registered with the Commission under the Advisers Act, which serves as the investment adviser to FECOF and certain Existing Affiliated Funds (together with FEAC and FEAC EU, the “Existing Advisers”), on behalf of itself and its successors;

 

   

Certain accounts that the Existing Advisers and their direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, from time to time, may use to hold various financial assets in a principal capacity identified in Appendix A (together, in such capacity, the “Existing Proprietary Accounts”); and

 

   

The investment vehicles identified in Appendix A (the “Existing Affiliated Funds” and, together with the Regulated Funds, Existing Advisers and Existing Proprietary Accounts, the “Applicants”).

C. Defined Terms

Except as stated herein, defined terms used in this application (the “Application”) have the meanings provided in the application for the Prior Order, as amended and restated (the “Prior Application”).

“Follow-On Investment” means (i) with respect to a Regulated Fund, an additional investment in the same issuer in which the Regulated Fund is currently invested; or (ii) with respect to an Affiliated Fund, (X) an additional investment in the same issuer in which the Affiliated Fund and at least one Regulated Fund are currently invested; or (Y) an investment in an issuer in which at least one Regulated Fund is currently invested but in which the Affiliated Fund does not currently have an investment. An investment in an issuer includes, but is not limited to, the exercise of warrants, conversion privileges or other rights to purchase securities of the issuer.

 

II.

APPLICANTS’ PROPOSAL

The Amended Order, if granted, would expand the relief provided in the Prior Order to permit Affiliated Funds to participate in Follow-On Investments in issuers in which at least one Regulated Fund is invested, but such Affiliated Funds are not invested. This relief would not permit Follow-On Investments by Regulated Funds that are not invested in the issuer. The requested relief is based on the Temporary Relief.

IV.

CONDITIONS

Except as stated herein, the Conditions of the Prior Order, as stated in Section V of the Prior Application, will remain in effect. Any language in the Conditions of the Prior Order stating that an Affiliated Fund is required to have an existing investment in an issuer and/or needs to have previously participated in a Co-Investment Transaction with respect to such issuer in order to participate in a Follow-On Investment shall be deemed removed if the Amended Order is granted.

 

V.
