P3 Seeks to Achieve 5 Primary Goals Provides capacity improvements much sooner than a traditional pay-as-you go approach Eliminates project phasing and advances the overall project Capitalizes on the private sector’s innovation and access to capital markets Transfers of appropriate risk items to private partner Enhances long-term, lifecycle cost efficiency and service quality 6

8 P3 Financial Controls Financial Controls Provide For Strong Creditworthiness Statutory requirements promote fiscal responsibility Governor and legislative approval of contractor financed projects 20% limitation on debt and debt like obligations 15% limitation on P3s Submittal of 5-year work program to the Legislature annually Budget requests are balanced to available resources Proven track record of effectively managing the work program as revenue forecasts change 8

11 Private Activity Bonds (PABs) Only $7.2B of the $15B Allocation is Remaining $15B cap on PABs used to deliver highway and freight transfer facilities Exempt facility bonds – not subject to state volume caps FDOT wishes to submit an application to secure a PABs allocation from US DOT Estimated allocation request = $800M to $1.5B Conduit issuer is a key player in application process PABs are an important financing mechanism for proposers Limited financial capacity in current bank debt markets PABs provide proposers with access to tax-exempt interest rates 11
