EXTRACT FROM THE MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE GOVERNOR AND COUNCIL HELD DECEMBER 15, 1999 IN THE COUNCIL CHAMBER, STATE HOUSE, CONCORD

At 11:00 a.m., the Governor announced that the next matter to be considered would be the financing of an industrial facility project by the Business Finance Authority for Ledge Road Realty Trust (the "Borrower"), to be leased to its affiliate, Olde Rock Springs, Inc., in Windham, New Hampshire, 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 Kevin Price, Trustee 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 Griffin introduced a resolution entitled "A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-I:9 WITH RESPECT TO THE FINANCINGOF AN INDUSTRIAL FACILITY BY THE BUSINESS FINANCE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FOR LEDGE ROAD REALTY TRUST IN WINDHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE" and moved its adoption, which was seconded by Councilor Colantuono. After discussion of the resolution, the Governor called for a vote on the motion. Those voting in favor were: the Governor and Councilor Spaulding, Councilor Burton, 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 AUTHORIZING UP TO $800,000 REVENUE BONDS, SERIES A AND SERIES B, FOR A PROJECT FOR LEDGE ROAD REALTY TRUST IN WINDHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE

WHEREAS, the Business Finance Authority of the State of New Hampshire (the "Authority") has been requested by Ledge Road Realty Trust (the "Borrower") to finance or refinance the acquisition and construction of an ink manufacturing facility, the acquisition of related manufacturing and ancillary equipment and the payment of certain closing costs (collectively, the "Project") by issuing up to $800,000 principal face amount of bonds (the "Bonds") under RSA 162-I (the "Act");

WHEREAS, the Authority took official action with respect to the Project by passing a resolution on November 30, 1998 approving the issue of up to $650,000 of Bonds for Windham Realty Trust, the predecessor-in-interest of the Borrower; and

WHEREAS, the Authority has been furnished with: (a) information and materials about the Borrower, the Project and unemployment in the Windham area, (b) evidence that Southern New Hampshire Bank and Trust Co. or its assigns (the "Bondowner") is willing to purchase the Bonds, (c) the form of the proposed MORTGAGE, SECURITY, LOAN AND TRUST AGREEMENT (the " Loan Agreement") among the Authority, the Borrower and the Bondowner which is a combined financing and security document and which will secure the Bonds, (d) information deemed relevant by the Authority in determining whether to allocate a portion of the State's 1999 private activity bond limit to the proposed financing pursuant ot RSA 162-M, and (e) other information, materials and assurances deemed relevant by the Authority; and

(1) The Project (which when completed will constitute the "Facility") consists of (i) the acquisition and construction of an ink manufacturing facility and the acquisition of related manufacturing and ancillary equipment; and (ii) the payment of certain closing costs (collectively, the "Facility"). The Facility is within the definition of "Industrial Facility" in RSA 162-I and may be financed under the Act; and

(3) The Loan Agreement and all instruments, agreements and documents required or contemplated by the Loan Agreement to give effect to the transactions described in the Loan Agreement (collectively with the Loan Agreement, the "Agreements") contain provisions so that under no circumstances will the Authority be obligated directly or indirectly to pay Project costs, debt service or expenses of operating, maintenance and upkeep of the Facility except from Bond proceeds or from funds received under the Agreements, exclusive of funds received thereunder by the Authority for its own use.

(4) The Agreements 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; and

(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. Determination and Recommendation. The Authority finds that the proposed financing, operation and use of the Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit and determines that the Authority's financing of the Project will be within the policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.
