First, all out stats are backed up with a list of each loan comprising the stat. SBA's public redacted report contains only summary information. Consequently, previous Franchise Coleman Reports were based on this summary information.
Which brings us to the major change in the 2012 Franchise Coleman Report. Included in this years report is every SBA franchise loan since 2000.
The report includes the name of the borrower, the lender, the amount and date of the loan, and whether the loan was paid off, charged off, with the amount lost, or if it remains active on the lender's books.
The data is listed in the attached electronic spread sheet.
How the Data is Compiled
We have significantly revamped the Franchise Coleman Report in order to make it more useful for small business lenders and franchisors.
Data is collected from two sources, both from the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Public Franchise Performance Redacted
The first data is a spreadsheet SBA names, "Public Franchise Performance Redacted as of 9-30-2010." This spreadsheet is included in the spreadsheet attached to this report under Tab 3. It is also included in the addendum of this report.
SBA only includes franchisees that have disbursed ten or more SBA loans since October 1, 2000.
The spreadsheet has five columns:
1) Name of franchise, with a franchise code--The franchise code is SBA's internal code. SBA and lenders are to input this code into SBA's computer system, but SBA acknowledges this has not always been done. We've talked to many about this issue. The consensus? SBA captures most of the loans, a guess is in the 85% to 90% range.
2) Disb#--The number of loans a franchisee system received from October 1, 2000 through September 30, 2011.
3) Disb$--Actual dollars disbursed for each franchise between October 1, 2000 through September 30, 2011. (000s ommitted)
4) Failure%--Failure percentage is the number of loans in liquidation plus charged off loans, divided by the number of loans disbursed.
5) Chgoff%--Charge Off percentage is the dollar amount charged off by SBA divided by the dollar amount disbursed.
