Hana Financial, Inc., one of the nation’s leading non-bank specialty commercial lenders, announced that its SBA lending unit, Hana Small Business Lending, Inc., has completed the securitization and sale of approximately $46.1 million of notes backed by the unguaranteed portion of a pool of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans.

The notes issued from this transaction received an “A-” rating from Standard and Poor’s.  This transaction also represented Hana’s third (3rd) SBA non-guaranteed securitization since 2012. In 2014, Hana completed a similar SBA securitization of $46.2 million, and in 2012, executed an SBA securitization of $26.6 million.
