May 28--NORFOLK -- Waterside Capital has agreed to pay the federal government $11.7 million to settle a defaulted loan and has begun liquidating its investments.

The Virginia Beach-based investment company was sued in federal court after defaulting on its $11.7 million loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The U.S. Attorney's Office filed papers in court Tuesday that the case has been settled. A judge must approve it.

The 20-year-old company had been an investor in small businesses throughout the mid-Atlantic, using SBA loans. The company's website says it is no longer taking on new investments.

A recent company securities report said it hopes to complete the liquidation by 2015.
