5 Pre-sale Rush and Submitting the Bid Initially the underwriter puts out a preliminary pricing wire to their sales force and traders. Initial coupons and yields are adjusted to reflect feedback from the sales force and traders. Pre-sale orders are entered from investors. With less than a minute to go, the underwriter finalizes the bid and submits it via the on-line system. At sale time the bidders are ranked in order of lowest to highest interest cost to the bidder. The sales results of a previous TAN sale are shown to the right. Morgan Stanley was the winning bidder (lowest TIC). The underwriter who buys the loan is called the highest bidder (i.e. best bid to the issuer). 4

9 Market Overview

10 Less Education Results In Higher Unemployment The headline unemployment rate of 6.2% doesn t tell the entire story of the state of the labor force in America. While unemployment in all of the categories presented below has declined since peaking in August 2009, those with less education are being hit the hardest. Jobs that require more education remain in fairly high demand; unemployment for those with a bachelor s degree or higher reached just 4.8% in August On the other hand, the unemployment rate for those with less than a high school degree has remained at or over 11.0% for the past four years. 11 Unemployment rate in 2013 (%) Less than a high school diploma High school diploma Some college, no degree Median weekly earning in 2013 ($) Associate's degree Bachelor's degree Master's degree 777 1,108 1, Professional degree Doctoral degree 1,714 $1,623 All workers: 6.1% All workers: $827 Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics 9

11 Economic Summary Economic Conditions U.S. GDP grew 4% in the second quarter, a significant rebound from a wintry contraction of 2.1% in the first quarter; growth was generally consistent across the major components. The labor market remained robust in July with 209,000 nonfarm jobs added, marking six consecutive months that the economy added more than 200,000 jobs; Unemployment rate rose slightly to 6.2% on a modest increase in labor participation. Renewed geopolitical tensions in the Middle East are the source of heightened market volatility. The Federal Reserve noted an increase in economic activity as it further reduced its bond-purchasing program down to $25 billion a month; purchases are on track to be fully phased out in October. Market Reaction Aside from brief periods of geopolitical flight to quality, intermediate-maturity U.S. Treasury yields generally rose in response to stronger economic data producing negative returns across sectors; Municipal securities were the lone sector that experienced positive performance for the month. Short term yields remain anchored by Federal Reserve policy and decreased supply of U.S. Treasury and Federal Agency securities. Credit and Federal Agency spreads remained at historically tight levels as demand outstripped supply and investors continue to struggle to find yield. Equity indices reached new highs before pulling back in the last few trading days causing investors to worry about a possible correction. 10

12 U.S. Economy Surges in 2 nd Quarter of 2014 U.S. GDP grew 4% in the second quarter, a significant rebound from a wintry contraction of 2.1% in the first quarter.

17 Capital Markets

18 What are the Capital Markets The Capital Market (securities markets) is the market for securities, where companies and the government can raise long-term funds. The capital markets include both the stock market and the bond market. The capital markets consist of the primary market, where new issues are distributed to investors, and the secondary market, where existing securities are traded. The capital markets can be contrasted with other financial markets such as the money market which deals in short term liquid assets, and the derivatives market which deals in derivative contracts. Both the private and the public sectors provide market makers in the capital markets. Source: 17

19 Public Finance (Government Finance) Public finance (government finance) is the field of economics that deals with budgeting the revenues and expenditures of a public sector entity, such as a school district. Florida School Districts, like any other legal entity, can take out loans, issue bonds and invest. Based on the taxing authority of the entity, they issue bonds such as Certificates of Participation (COPs) or Revenue Bonds. A bond issued by a public sector entity may give tax advantages to its owners, with interest earnings not subject to federal income tax. Source: 18
