§ 8043. Assistance.
In addition to other assistance which the Authority shall be authorized to provide in accordance with this division:
(a) The Authority shall be authorized to provide any part or combination of the assistance described below, but the Authority shall not be required to provide any particular form of assistance to any applicant. The Authority shall be authorized to provide the form or forms of assistance that, in its judgment, will most effectively assist the applicant to (i) achieve financing for the project; (ii) obtain a bond rating of “A” from a national bond rating service if bonds are issued publicly; and (iii) obtain an effective interest rate for all or a portion of the term of the financing which, in the Authority's judgment, is comparable at the time of financing to the prevailing market rates which would be paid by larger businesses for similar types of financing (but for any conventional loan not lower than the “prime rate” then prevailing):
(1) Pay for the reasonable costs of issuing bonds or obtaining conventional loans. For bond issues, these costs include bond counsel fees, underwriter or placement agent fees or discount and related expenses, printing fees, fees due to other state agencies, accounting fees, consultant's fees, and other expenses directly related to the issuance of bonds that are normally paid from the proceeds of a bond issued at the time of closing. For conventional loans, these costs include counsel fees, loan origination fees, consultant's fees, and other costs normally incurred in obtaining a commercial loan. The costs of issuing bonds or obtaining conventional loans shall not include expenses incurred by the applicant for other attorney fees, staff time, or other expenses related to the application for financing.
(2) Provide financial assistance to reduce the annual fees or premium for a letter of credit, surety bond, insurance policy, or other credit enhancement.
(3) Guarantee to the bond holder, conventional lender or provider of a letter of credit, surety, insurance policy, or other credit enhancement all or a portion of the indebtedness; provided, however, that in no event shall the aggregate amount of such guarantees outstanding at any time with respect to any applicant exceed $2,000,000.
(4) Provide financial assistance to reduce the interest rate on conventional loans or bonds by not more than two percent (2%).
(5) Pay for the Authority's costs (hourly rate for staff labor and Issuer's Counsel fees) associated with a post-issuance request to amend bond documents to reflect an index rate change, in instances where small business borrowers are subject to a nationally recognized index rate.
(b) The Authority alone is authorized to approve assistance. The commitment to provide assistance shall be valid only when it is included in a written contract executed by both the Authority and applicant or group of applicants.
