exemption under Section 312 of the Act and Section 107.730, Financings 
which Constitute Conflicts of Interest of the Small Business 
Administration (``SBA'') Rules and Regulations (13 CFR 107.730). GC 
SBIC IV, L.P. provided loan financing to Massage Envy LLC, 14350 N.

working capital, to repay existing senior debt, to repay existing 
junior debt, for capital expenditures, and for other corporate 
purposes.
    The transactions are brought within the purview of Sec.  107.730 of 
the Regulations because Massage Envy LLC used financing proceeds from

Debenture SBIC, L.P. and other entities under common management by 
Golub Capital, which are Associates of GC SBIC IV, L.P. Specialty 
Catalog Corp. also used financing proceeds from GC SBIC IV, L.P. in 
part to discharge obligations to LEG Partners Debenture SBIC, L.P., an 
Associate of GC SBIC IV, L.P.
    Therefore, these transaction are considered self-deals pursuant to 
13 CFR 107.730 and require regulatory exemptions. 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
