18. Net Capital Requirements of Broker-Dealer Subsidiaries
NSC is subject to the SEC's Uniform Net Capital Rule (Rule 15c3-1) (the "Rule"), which, among other things, requires the maintenance of minimum net capital. At December 31, 2017, National Securities had net capital of $10.0 million which was $9.7 million in excess of its required net capital of $250,000. National Securities is exempt from the provisions of the SEC's Rule 15c3-3 since it is an introducing broker-dealer that clears all transactions on a fully disclosed basis and promptly transmits all customer funds and securities to clearing brokers.
Advances, dividend payments and other equity withdrawals from the Company's broker-dealer subsidiaries are restricted by the regulations of the SEC, and other regulatory agencies. These regulatory restrictions may limit the amounts that a subsidiary may dividend or advance to the Company.
