EXTRACT FROM THE MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE GOVERNOR AND COUNCIL HELD JUNE 22, 1999 IN THE COUNCIL CHAMBER, STATE HOUSE, CONCORD

At 10:30 a.m., the Governor announced that the next matter to be considered would be the financing of a commercial facility project by the Business Finance Authority for Brewster Academy, a tax-exempt organization described in Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Borrower") in Wolfeboro and declared that the public hearing on the subject had commenced. She said that she and the members of the Council had received the written recommendation of the Authority and other documentation and information with respect to the project. The Governor said that the meeting would then hear anyone wishing to speak on the subject. Jack Donovan, Executive Director of the Authority, briefly explained the project, emphasized that the credit of the State was not involved and introduced Eric Burns of the Borrower. The Governor then repeated that the proceedings were a public hearing and asked whether any other person wished to speak; there being none, Councilor Burton introduced a resolution entitled "A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-I:9 WITH RESPECT TO THE FINANCING OF A COMMERCIAL FACILITY BY THE BUSINESS FINANCE AUTHORITY FOR BREWSTER ACADEMY IN WOLFEBORO, NEW HAMPSHIRE" and moved its adoption, which was seconded by Councilor Streeter. After discussion of the resolution, the Governor called for a vote on the motion. Those voting in favor were: the Governor and Councilor Burton, Councilor Spaulding, Councilor Griffin, Councilor Colantuono, and Councilor Streeter; those abstaining were Councilor(s): None; and those voting against were Councilor(s): none. The Governor declared that the resolution was passed.

A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-I:9 WITH RESPECT TO THE FINANCING OF A COMMERCIAL FACILITY BY THE BUSINESS FINANCE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FOR BREWSTER ACADEMY IN WOLFEBORO, NEW HAMPSHIRE

WHEREAS, the Governor and Council have received from the Business Finance Authority of the State of New Hampshire (the "Authority") its written recommendation that the Governor and Council make certain findings and a determination under RSA 162-I:9 with respect to the financing or refinancing of a commercial facility for Brewster Academy, a tax-exempt organization described in Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Borrower") in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire by the Authority's issuance of up to $800,000 in Bonds (the "Bonds") under RSA 162-I (the "Act"); and

WHEREAS, the Governor and Council have received all of the documentation and information with respect to the proposed transaction which they have requested; and

WHEREAS, further action by the Authority with respect to the proposed transaction is subject to, and cannot be taken until passage of, this Resolution;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED THAT:

Section 1. Findings. On the basis of the Authority's recommendation and the documentation and information received by the Governor and Council, and after a public hearing, the Governor and Council find:

(a) Special Findings.

(1) The project to be financed or refinanced with the proceeds of the Bonds consists of (i) the acquisition of certain personal computers and related peripheral equipment; and (ii) the payment of certain closing costs (collectively, the "Facility"). The Facility is within the definition of "Commercial Facility" in RSA 162-I and may be financed under the Act.

(2) The establishment and operation of the Facility will create and preserve employment opportunities directly or indirectly within the State of New Hampshire (the "State") and will be of general benefit to the community as a whole.

(b) General Findings.

(1) The creation, establishment, acquisition, construction, expansion, remodeling or replacement of the Facility (the "Project") and the proposed financing of the Project are feasible.

(2) The Borrower has the skills and financial resources necessary to operate the Facility successfully.

(3) The Master Financing Agreement, Schedule No. 2 thereto and the other documents evidencing and securing the Bonds (the "Financing Documents") contain provisions so that under no circumstances will the Authority be obligated, directly or indirectly, to pay Project costs, debt service or expenses of operation, maintenance and upkeep of the Facility except from proceeds of the Bonds or from funds received under the Financing Documents, exclusive of funds received under the Financing Documents by the Authority for its own use.

(4) The Financing Documents do not purport to create any debt of the State with respect to the Facility, other than a special obligation of the Authority acting on behalf of the State under the Act.

(5) The proposed financing of the Project by the Authority and the proposed operation and use of the Facility will serve one or more needs and implement one or more purposes set forth in RSA 162-I:1, will preserve or increase the social or economic prosperity of the State and one or more of its political subdivisions, and will promote the general welfare of the State's citizens.

Section 2. Ultimate Finding and Determination. The Governor and Council find that the proposed financing, operation and use of the Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit and determine that the Authority's financing of the Project will be within the policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.

Section 3. Approval. The Governor and Council hereby approve the Authority's taking such further action under the Act with respect to the transaction involving the Facility, the Project and the Bonds as may be required.
