Each bid must be for not less than all of the Bonds described herein. Bidders may bid a discount not to exceed 1.0% of the face amount of the Bonds. The Bonds will bear interest at a rate or rates not to exceed 4.0% per annum (the exact interest rate or rates will be determined by bidding). Interest will be calculated on a 30/360-day basis and will be payable on July 1, 2019, and semiannually thereafter on January 1 and July 1 of each year. Said Bonds will be dated the date of delivery, will be in the denominations of $5,000 or integral multiples thereof and will mature semiannually on January 1 and July 1 of each year, on the dates and in the amounts as follows, provided that the Issuer reserves the right to modify the below amounts following the award of the Bonds to effectuate as level annual debt service as practicable:
All or a portion of the Bonds may be issued as one or more term bonds, upon election of the successful bidder. Such term bonds shall have a stated maturity or maturities of January 1 or July 1, beginning on January 1, 2020, with a final maturity no later than January 1, 2022, as determined by the successful bidder. The term bonds shall be subject to mandatory sinking fund redemption and final payment(s) at maturity at 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued interest to the redemption date, on dates consistent with the above schedule.
At the request of the successful bidder, the Bonds may be issued as fully registered Bonds in book entry only form, registered in the name of Cede & Co., as nominee for The Depository Trust Company, New York, New York (“DTC”). In such case, the successful bidder is expected to apply to DTC to make such Bonds depository eligible.
The Bonds are not subject to optional redemption prior to maturity.
Principal is payable at the office of a registrar and paying agent to be designated by the Issuer. Interest shall be paid by check mailed to the registered owners or by wire transfer to depositories. The Bonds will be issued in fully registered form.
Each bid must be for all of said Bonds and must state the rate or rates of interest in multiples of 1/8, 1/20 or 1/100 of 1%, non-descending. Any bids specifying two or more interest rates shall also specify the amount and maturities of the Bonds bearing each rate, but all Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same single interest rate. The rate on any maturity shall be equal to or greater than the rate on the immediately preceding maturity. The award will be made to the bidder complying with the terms of sale and offering the lowest net interest cost to the Issuer, to be determined by computing the total interest on all of the Bonds to their maturities and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount bid, if any. Although not a term of sale, it is requested that each bid show the net dollar interest cost to final maturity and the net effective average interest rate on the entire issue. No conditional bid or bid for less than 99% of the face value of said Bonds will be considered. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If no satisfactory bids are received at the time and on the date fixed for the sale, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter without further advertisement for a period of thirty (30) days, during which time no bid which provides a higher net interest cost to the Issuer than the best bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered.
Each bid must be on the bid form provided by the Issuer which shall be enclosed in a sealed envelope addressed to the Clerk-Treasurer of the City of Boonville, Indiana and marked “Bid for City of Boonville, Indiana Redevelopment District Bonds, Series 2018” or emailed to the Municipal Advisor at the email address listed above. The winning bidder will be notified and instructed to submit a good faith deposit which may consist of either a certified or cashier’s check or wire transfer in the amount of $11,700.

In either case, the deposit shall be payable to the “City of Boonville, Indiana” and shall be held as a guaranty of the performance of the bid.

The successful bidder will be required to make payment for the Bonds in Federal Reserve funds or other immediately available funds and accept delivery of the Bonds within five (5) days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery. It is anticipated that the Bonds will be ready for delivery within thirty (30) days of the sale date, and if not ready for delivery within forty-five (45) days after the sale date, the purchaser shall be entitled to rescind the sale and obtain the return of the good faith deposit.
As set forth in the hereinafter described Official Statement, each bidder agrees by submission of its bid to assist the Issuer in establishing issue price of the Bonds. In the event that the Issuer fails to receive a bid on the Bonds from at least three Underwriters (as hereinafter defined), the Issuer shall so advise the successful bidder for the Bonds (such successful bidder, the “Purchaser”). If the Purchaser is an Underwriter intending to resell all or any portion of the Bonds to the Public (as hereinafter defined), the Purchaser must, prior to acceptance of its bid by the Issuer, either (i) agree in writing to neither offer nor sell any of the Bonds to any person at a price that is higher than the initial offering price for each maturity of Bonds during the Holding Period (as hereinafter defined) for any maturity of the Bonds or (ii) request in writing that the Issuer treat the first price at which 10% of a maturity of the Bonds (the 10% test) is sold to the public as the issue price of that maturity, applied on a maturity-by-maturity basis. For purposes of this Notice of Intent to Sell Bonds, (a) the term “Public” shall mean any person (including an individual, trust, estate, partnership, association, company, or corporation) other than an Underwriter or a related party to an Underwriter, (b) the term “related party” means any two or more persons who have greater than 50 percent common ownership, directly or indirectly, (c) the term “Underwriter” means (i) any person that agrees pursuant to a written contract with the Issuer (or with the lead underwriter to form an underwriting syndicate) to participate in the initial sale of the Bonds to the Public, and (ii) any person that agrees pursuant to a written contract directly or indirectly with a person described in clause (i) of this paragraph to participate in the initial sale of the Bonds to the Public (including a member of a selling group or a party to a retail distribution agreement participating in the initial sale of the Bonds to the Public), (d) the term “Underwriters” means more than one Underwriter, and (e) the term “Holding Period” means the period starting on the date the Issuer awards the Bonds to the Purchaser (the “Sale Date”) and ending on the earlier of (i) the close of the fifth business day after the Sale Date, or (ii) the date on which the Underwriter has sold at least 10% of each maturity of the Bonds to the Public at prices that are no higher than the initial offering price for such maturity of the Bonds. Any Underwriter executing and delivering a bid with respect to the Bonds agrees thereby that if its bid is accepted by the Issuer (i) it shall accept such designation and (ii) it shall enter into a contractual relationship with all participating underwriters of the Bonds for purposes of assuring the receipt of each such participating underwriter of the final Official Statement. The Purchaser shall be responsible for providing (i) in writing the initial reoffering prices and other terms, if any, to the Municipal Advisor as and at the time requested and (ii) a certification verifying information as to the bona fide initial offering prices of the Bonds to the Public and sales of the Bonds appropriate for determination of the issue price of, and the yield on, the Bonds under Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, as and at the time requested by the City’s bond counsel.

CUSIP identification numbers may be printed on the Bonds if requested by the successful bidder; provided, however, that neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by the successful bidder therefor to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its bid. No CUSIP identification number shall be deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby, and no liability shall hereafter attach to the Issuer or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds shall be paid for by the Issuer; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the successful bidder.
