Capital Access Company Law
Senate Bill 2189 (Chapter 668, Statutes 1998) enacted the Capital Access Company Law (the “CACL”), which, among other things, provides for the licensure and regulation of capital access companies by the Commissioner of the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation. This law, which is found at Corporations Code Section 28000 et seq., became operative on July 1, 1999, and is intended to facilitate California small businesses obtaining financing by enabling certain investment companies to rely on an exemption from registration under the federal Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “Investment Company Act”).
