Stinson Securities specializes in thinking 'outside the box.' This philosophy is illustrated in the example of a municipal client that was locked into a disadvantageous contract with Enron. After identifying the specific needs of this client, Stinson Securities structured and sold an $11 million non-rated issue, allowing the municipality to buy out its contract with Enron. In doing so, the issuer saved more than $28 million and met the time constraints Imposed by the Federal Bankruptcy Court in New York.
In another instance, Stinson personnel spent more than a year analyzing a taxable, vacant rent-to-own issue for the Palm Desert Redevelopment Agency. With the help of a nationally recognized bond counsel, the Desert Rose project was converted from a taxable rent-to-own project to a tax-exempt low and moderate income homeownership project. The tax exempt refunding bonds provided 'silent seconds' that allowed eligible buyers to own homes with a down payment of $1000 and monthly payments of less than $1000. The 161-unit project which includes a childcare center and a recreation center, went from vacant to completely sold out within one year.
