Fitch rates Vermont Housing Finance Agency’s $30 million 2010A & 2009A-1 Bonds ‘AAA’

first_imgFitch Ratings has assigned ‘AAA’ ratings to the $30,000,000 Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) mortgage revenue bonds (Mortgage Backed Securities Program) as follows:–$12,000,000 series 2010A;–$18,000,000 subseries 2009A-1.The Rating Outlook for the bonds is Stable.RATING RATIONALE:–The $18 million 2009A-1 subseries is the first release from the $102 million 2009 A escrow bonds from the December 1, 2009 indenture. The bond proceeds were initially held in an escrow account and secured solely by amounts on deposit in the escrow account and investment earnings from the account;–The $12 million 2010A bonds will be the second offering issued under the December 1, 2009 indenture. The 2010A mortgage revenue bonds are being issued under a mortgage backed securities program that pledges revenues and federal agency certificates as security for the bonds.KEY RATING DRIVERS:Removal of funds from the program below minimum 100% asset parity.SECURITY:Proceeds will be used for the financing of single family mortgage loans in the State of Vermont through the purchase of GNMA Certificates, Fannie Mae Certificates, and Freddie Mac Certificates (collectively Federal Agency Certificates), as well as to make deposits in various funds and accounts. The Trust Indenture pledges revenues of the Indenture, Federal Agency Certificates deposited in the Indenture, and funds and accounts created in the Indenture to secure the bonds (other than the escrow fund where deposits are secured solely for the payment of bonds related to the proceeds in the escrow account).CREDIT SUMMARY:The ‘AAA’ rating reflects the legal document provisions for the single family mortgage program upon the purchase of Federal Agency Certificates. The Trust Indenture requires that, once funds are released from escrow, mortgage loans be pooled and financed through the purchase of guaranteed mortgage pass-through Federal Agency Certificates, which are fully guaranteed for timely payment regardless of the actual performance of underlying loans. GNMA mortgage-backed securities are guaranteed by the U.S. government; Fitch rates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage-backed securities ‘AAA’ (see Oct. 9, 2009 press release). The rating also reflects the Trust Indenture requirement that the program’s minimum asset parity be maintained at 100% (net of cash flow stress test scenarios). In addition, the rating accounts for VHFA’s successful history of administering its single family programs. Fitch reviewed the bond documents, stressed cash flow runs, and other pertinent documentation.The 2009 Trust Indenture was created, in part, so that VHFA could take advantage of the New Issue Bond Program (NIBP) established by the United States Treasury with the assistance of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Under the terms of the program, Treasury purchased up to 60% of the Program Bonds sold by state and local housing finance agencies with the remaining 40% to be sold to private investors as Market Bonds. The interest rate for bonds sold to Treasury will be based on the investment earnings of the escrow fund for the pre-conversion period, and for the remainder of the period, will be based on the 10-year Constant Maturity Treasury (CMT) plus a defined spread based on rating category of bond program.Because Treasury’s authority to complete these transactions under the Housing Economic Recovery Act of 2008 was due to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, all NIBP related transactions were to be completed prior to year end. However, the expiration date was extended for one more year and the program now allows issuers to close prior to the Dec. 31, 2011 deadline. The funds remain in escrow until they are converted to long-term bonds, in conjunction with the sale of Market Bonds, over the course of 2010 and 2011. The funds may be held in escrow up until Dec. 31, 2011 and can be drawn upon and converted to long-term bonds during 2010 and 2011.Additional information is available at ‘www.fitchratings.com(link is external)’Applicable criteria and related research:–‘State Housing Finance Agencies – Single Family Mortgage Program Rating Guidelines (Nov. 26, 2008);–‘Revenue-Supported Rating Criteria’ (Aug. 16, 2010).Applicable Criteria and Related Research:State Housing Finance Agencies – Single-Family Mortgage Program Rating Guidelineshttp://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=4(link is external)…Revenue-Supported Rating Criteriahttp://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=5(link is external)…ALL FITCH CREDIT RATINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS.

Local Ties

first_imgLisa Barnett, English and drama instructor from Batesville Community Schools, recently lost her father, Ronald McCloud, at the age of 90. Mr. McCloud lived in Hanover, Indiana, when he passed away. He was born in Putnam County, Indiana, and he was raised in the Bedford Community. He graduated from Mooresville High School in 1940. He attended Earlham College in Richmond where he ran cross country for the Quakers and was later inducted into the Track Hall of Fame. It is interesting to me that his son-in-law, Thomas Barnett, is now the head boys’ cross country coach at Batesville High School after spending more than 20 years as coach of the Middle School runners. Mr. McCloud’s grandson, Trent, is a current runner on the Batesville Varsity Boys’ Team. Ronald McCloud was a decorated soldier in World War II. During his lifetime, he spent more than 40 years with the Social Security Administration and was manager of the Madison Office. We want to extend our sympathy to his family!last_img read more

3 things Dino Babers said: Eric Dungey going through testing after Clemson hit, voting and more

first_img Published on November 7, 2016 at 1:18 pm Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus Coming off a 54-0 loss to then-No. 3 Clemson in Death Valley on Saturday, Syracuse head coach Dino Babers addressed the media at his weekly press conference Monday.The Orange (4-5, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) will next face North Carolina State (4-5, 1-4) in the Carrier Dome at 12:30 p.m.Here are three things he said.Babers’ is ‘not sure’ what Eric Dungey’s injury isStarting quarterback Eric Dungey was knocked out of the loss to Clemson near the end of the first quarter when linebacker Dorian O’Daniel drove his helmet into Dungey’s shoulder. O’Daniel’s helmet slid underneath Dungey’s chin, knocking his helmet halfway off. Dungey put his hands to his head while on the ground. He got up with the help of trainers but looked woozy as he was guided to the locker room with at least one hand on him from a staff member the entire way.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBabers said he’s “not sure what it is right now,” in reference Dungey’s injury and whether or not it is a concussion. “We still haven’t finished the tests.” Babers said he saw the quarterback in the plane ride home, but that Dungey missed the team’s meeting on Sunday because he was undergoing testing.Last year, the quarterback missed four games and parts of three others because of hits to the head.Babers said Dungey “really got jerked” on the hit, but it was only a shoulder pad it wasn’t helmet-to-helmet contact.The Orange also lost running back Moe Neal, safety Daivon Ellison and receiver Brisly Estime during the course of the game.“I have not gotten notices back on all of them yet,” Babers said in his opening statement. “Some of them are still going through medical things to clear or not clear them. Outside of that I have no idea what’s going with all this stuff so I’ve got to wait and see.”Babers also noted that injured wide receiver Jamal Custis, who hasn’t played this year, will redshirt.‘We’re going to see what happens during the week’ regarding Mahoney and WilsonBabers is taking a wait-and-see approach regarding Dungey’s replacement, if needed. Despite not being on the two-deep depth chart, Austin Wilson replaced Dungey in the Clemson game, and he threw 27 passes for 17 completions, 116 yards, two interceptions and no touchdowns. Zack Mahoney, who was listed as the backup and was the only other quarterback to play for SU this year, entered after Wilson in the fourth quarter, going 1-for-4 for 8 yards.The depth chart released Monday has both Wilson and Mahoney listed as the secondary options to Dungey. Babers said both of the QBs did “OK.” He also said he’s not sure what the split of reps will be like in practice, but that even if he didn’t he wouldn’t reveal it.“We have an idea of who does what better, but we have to see with the rest of the football team too if Eric can’t play of how we’re going to use those guys in that situation that’s going to be the most conducive for us,” Babers said.Babers shares middle school voting education storyElection Day is on Tuesday, with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump battling for the United States presidency. A noteworthy topic, among others, is an open seat on the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February. The next president would appoint the new justice with the Senate voting on the choice.Babers said he doesn’t talk about politics to the football team and he doesn’t speak about politics as a “public servant” and representative of Syracuse University.“Now, all that being said,” Babers said, “I’m going to get in trouble.“I can still remember my middle grade teacher and she was trying to make sure that when we were growing up that we would all vote. All right. ‘Got to get out and vote. Got to get out and vote.’ She would ask — I was a in a certain type of neighborhood. They were like, ‘Does your mom and dad vote?’ Well some of us raise our hands. Well some of them do, some of them don’t.“And I’ll never forget her saying, she said, ‘It’s really important that you exercise your right to vote.’ And then she went a step forward … ‘If you’re not going to vote, just remember this. If you’re not going to vote every single year for the president, at least vote every single year that there is a seat open on the supreme court because that is the most important year ever to vote.’“That’s my answer to that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
