3 Key AIDEA Programs Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority AIDEA has an extensive portfolio of programs to finance economic development in Alaska. The programs that are most relevant for broadband infrastructure expansion are: 1.Conduit Revenue Bond 2.Project Development 3.Infrastructure Development

4 Conduit Bond Program Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority Provides financing where AIDEA acts as a conduit for the issuance of taxable and tax-exempt bonds.  Neither the assets nor credit of AIDEA or the State of Alaska are at risk  The creditworthiness of the project and credit enhancements offered by the applicant are essential to the underwriting and placement of bonds.  The benefit that AIDEA offers is that it is a known entity in the market and may expedite the sale of the bonds in a public offering.  AIDEA can also provide the expertise to issue bonds through a private placement

5 Project & Infrastructure Development Programs Objective: To provide financing for Alaskan projects and infrastructure necessary to support Alaskan economic development. AIDEA can:  Own all or a part of a project or infrastructure  Invest in a Corporation or Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) that owns the project or infrastructure. Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority

6 Project & Infrastructure Development Programs  The project must be endorsed by the local government.  The project and its development must be economically advantageous to the state and to the general public welfare.  The project applicant is financially responsible.  The project must be economically and financially feasible and able to produce revenue adequate to repay the investment, bonds or loans with which it is financed.

7 Project & Infrastructure Development Programs  Flexibility in structuring our financing packages with each deal being unique and requiring its own specific structure.  The final financing package may include several sources of funds and several different financing vehicles including debt, private and public equity, tax credits and incentives, and grants.  Examples of AIDEA project deals include:  Cook Inlet Jack Up Rig  DeLong Mountain Transport System  Skagway Ore Terminal Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority
