Equipment Revenue Note Program

The Equipment Revenue Note Program provides cost-effective financing for the acquisition and installation of equipment. Equipment Revenue notes are privately placed with investors who have expressed an interest in purchasing tax-exempt securities. The interest rate and certain structural aspects are negotiated with the purchaser. The program has been designed to facilitate an efficient borrowing vehicle for future equipment purchases through the use of a Master Lease Agreement.


The Equipment Revenue Note Program is designed to offer both an easy and efficient method of financing and refinancing equipment. Notify the Authority of your interest in the program and the Authority will "shop" the deal to potential investors to determine interest.
