Case Study: Taxable Municipal Bonds

The City of Jonesboro,

Arkansas Taxable Economic Development Revenue Bonds

The Bonds were issued to finance the costs of acquiring, constructing and equipping an industrial facility for Nordex, a leading manufacturer of wind turbine nacelles. Nordex USA’s new Jonesboro, Arkansas plant is a key pillar in the strategy to serve the rapidly growing U.S. alternative energy market. The facility will focus on its large-scale turbine family which is capable of generating enough renewable energy to power about 700 homes. The company expects it will employ up to 700 skilled workers and other staff by 2014. Nordex is planning a 10,000 sq. foot onsite training academy to teach skills specific to wind turbine manufacturing.

Case Study: Corporate Bonds

U.S. Environmentally Friendly Companies

Investors have the opportunity to purchase the corporate debt of U.S. companies that incorporate sustainable business practices and policies. For Newsweek’s 2010 Green Rankings: U.S. Companies, the magazine worked with three leading environmental-research organizations to analyze the 500 biggest publicly traded companies in the U.S. This allowed the opportunity to compare their actual environmental footprints, policies, and reputations.

Case Study: Single Family Agency MBS

Fannie Mae Energy-Improvement Mortgage Add-On Program

Fannie Mae’s new energy add-on program allows owners to buy an existing house and enhance its energy usage with just one mortgage at current market rates. It folds the cost of improvements into the actual mortgage amount, which are limited to up to 10 percent of the estimated market value of the home following the energy-saving developments.

Case Study: Multifamily Agency MBS

Le Cirque Apartments, Denver, Colorado

Le Cirque Apartments has 44 units, of which 15 are reserved for low-income housing. The complex is a vintage 1904 brick building that has been restored with touches reminiscent of the most famous neighborhoods in New Orleans, while maintaining the charm and grace of the original structure. The complex was developed by Boutique Properties™, an environmentally-sustainable property developer and manager. The Boutique properties include energy-efficient windows that reduce the transfer of heat and cold, thereby saving money. All of the electricity comes from wind power and recycling bins adorn the building.

Case Study: Government Guaranteed Loans/Government-Related Securities

Verde Earthworks, Rimrock, Arizona

A Small Business Administration (SBA) loan financed Verde Earthworks, a residential and commercial recycling company, servicing the Sedona/Verde Valley, Arizona area. The company is woman-owned and they sort at the curb to guarantee 100% of what they accept is recycled. Verde Earthworks’ vision is to identify the multifaceted challenges of rural recycling in order to increase economic development and health by providing jobs and alternative end-uses for products.
