13 CFR 107.1400 - Dividends or partnership distributions on 4 percent Preferred Securities.
If you issued Preferred Securities to SBA on or after November 21, 1989, you must pay SBA a dividend or partnership distribution of 4 percent per year, from the date you issued Preferred Securities to the date you repay them, both inclusive. The dividend or partnership distribution is:
(a) Computed on the par value of the outstanding stock or the face value of the outstanding limited partnership interest.
(b) Cumulative. This means that if you do not pay the entire dividend or partnership distribution for a given fiscal year, the unpaid balance accumulates as a distribution in arrears. You do not have to pay interest on distributions in arrears.
