Vermont to offer ‘Citizens’ Bonds’ for sale on February 25

first_imgApproximately $20 million in State of Vermont Citizens Bonds will be offered for sale on February 25. The opportunity to purchase the general obligation bonds will be made available first to Vermont residents and businesses. The last Vermont Citizens Bonds offering in March 2009 sold out in less than three hours.Bonds may be purchased in $1,000 increments and must be bought through a registered broker/dealer. The bonds maturities will range from one to 10 years. The State Treasurer s Office does not sell the bonds directly and does not endorse any particular broker/dealer. Any bonds remaining after Vermonters have had the opportunity to invest will then be made available to retail and institutional investors from outside of the state. Based on the strong response to our March 2009 bond offering, I would urge anyone interested in purchasing these bonds to contact a registered broker/dealer right away, said State Treasurer Jeb Spaulding. Interest earnings from the bonds are exempt from state and federal taxes. As a new bond issue, these bonds are sold without commission or trading mark-up.The sale of bonds to investors is the process by which states borrow money to make critical investments in public infrastructure. The money raised by a bond sale funds the construction and maintenance of a wide range of State buildings and transportation projects. Moody s Investor Service has rated Vermont bonds as triple-A, the highest rating available to government issuers. Vermont bonds are also rated AA+ by Standard & Poor s Ratings Service and by Fitch Ratings. The higher the bond rating, the more creditworthy the rating agency evaluates a bond issuer to be.In addition to the Vermont Citizens Bonds, on February 25 the State Treasurer s Office also plans to make available up to $50 million in negotiated general obligation refunding bonds. The amount of refunding bonds, if any, will depend upon the level of interest rates at the time of the sale. Lower interest rates will mean that more bonds can be refinanced for savings. The process of issuing refunding bonds is similar in concept to a homeowner refinancing a home to take advantage of lower interest rates, explained Spaulding. Sales of these bonds enable the State to retire debt with higher interest rates and replace it with debt obligations that have lower interest charges.Investors interested in the Vermont Citizen s Bonds should contact their registered broker/dealer. If an investor does not have a broker/dealer, he or she may consult the Vermont Department of Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration s web site to search a data base of registered broker/dealers with offices in the state. For a link to the BISHCA database go to www.BuyBonds.Vermont.gov(link is external) . The preliminary Official Statement for this offering also will be available at this link on the State Treasurer s web site around February 18. The offering is named: State of Vermont General Obligation Bonds, 2010 Series B (Citizens Bonds) and 2010 Series C (Refunding Bonds).Under no circumstances should this announcement of bond issuance be considered an offer to sell or a solicitation to offer to buy, nor shall there be any sales of the bonds in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sales would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. The bonds will be offered for sale by means of an Official Statement.Source: Office of the State Treasurer. 2.4.2010.last_img read more

The reasons that bring Mbappé closer to and away from Madrid

first_imgMbappé remains the proper name in the short term in Madrid’s strategy. Contract ends in 2022 with PSG and is the footballer around whom Florentino Pérez wants to build a new project after the current generation has conquered four Champions in five seasons, three in a row with Zidane. The events derived from the coronavirus crisis are conditioning this Real Madrid strategy. The following are the reasons for and against Madrid in its purpose given the situation. -The PSG project loses muscle.The economic crisis is going to affect a lot of clubs built on the basis of a checkbook that do not have much base as a youth team or as a club. PSG is a tower of babel, a team made with a checkbook, and this crisis may affect it more with the flight of some players. This will affect your goal of finally winning the Champions League. Let us not forget that the purpose of Mbappé is to be seen in the maximum competition in order to win the Ballon d’Or one day. Madrid does provide that visibility. … AND WHICH REMOVES YOU– Madrid is due to its accounts.It is evident that the coronavirus crisis will not only affect PSG in this matter. It will also affect Madrid, which will also walk with lead feet on this issue. You wouldn’t get into doing any operation without perfectly clear numbers for one main reason. In Madrid (as in the other sports clubs, Barça, Athletic and Osasuna) it is the Board of Directors that is responsible for possible losses in the income statement. Madrid is not a bottomless pit and revenues are going to fall, it is not yet known how much.-The salary will be more adjusted.Madrid let Mbappé escape in the summer of 2017, when he already had him tied up (as revealed by the papers leaked by Football Leakes, as he slipped from Real Madrid himself, because he was asking, at 19 years old, a salary of 12 million net that broke Madrid’s salary scale. Currently Bale and Ramos are the ones that charge the most, 14.5 net. The French star now charges at PSG around 10 net … Madrid will not be able to give much more than that to a newcomer.-More money in advertising.-It may be that raising his salary is difficult for Madrid, But what it will give you is much more cache for advertising brands. Madrid is a reef, the best-known club on the planet, and all footballers take advantage of it. You will get more money in sponsors.center_img REASONS THAT BRING YOU CLOSER-PSG has stopped its renewal.Up to twice Mbappe has already rejected the PSG renewal proposals that have come to her father in the last two months. Now, curious, in the face of the first wave of the coronavirus tsunami and as reported by the French media, It is PSG itself who has stopped this proposal until the picture is clarified. Very positive for Madrid. Its main purpose is precisely that Mbappé does not renew to undertake his signing at the right time, when PSG is forced to sell it or let him go the following summer.-Al Khelaifi wants to cut wages.It is inevitable in all European football. The clubs have stopped making a lot of money, especially for television rights, and a drop in wages will be inevitable. Al Khelaifi has already slipped it. It is useless for PSG to have a state behind, Qatar, because the UIEFA and FIFA are very aware of the Financial Fair Play. The problem, moreover, is that Mbappé’s salary at PSG is not high, 20.8 million euros gross, since he signed when he was only 19 years old.last_img read more
