Crescent Capital BDC Inc. CCAP said Wednesday it has no direct exposure to the failed Silicon Valley Bank SIVB and Signature Bank SBNY, along with the broader regional banking sector. However, the small business lender has been in active dialogue with the sponsors and management teams of its portfolio companies to assess their exposure to the banks and sector. “While we’ve identified certain instances of portfolio companies having exposure to SVB through deposit accounts only, we believe that the direct risk of cash depository loss of any portfolio company has likely been remediated based on Sunday’s decision by the Treasury, Federal Reserve and FDIC to fully protect all SVB and Signature depositors,” the Los Angeles, Calif.-based company said in a statement. It added that it does not believe most of the SVC deposit account balances were big enough to have meaningfully impacted the portfolio companies had depositor support not been provided. The companies have no relationship with SVB in credit facilities. Crescent Capital stock has fallen 20% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 SPX has fallen 8%.
