The following case studies demonstrate the depth and breadth of our healthcare solutions. Case Study During difficult financial times, SFS provided $19.5 million in tax- exempt financing to a new hospital in Silicon Valley, California. The five-year financing enabled the hospital to be equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic technology that will help improve patient treatment at this facility. Case Study Due to the collapse of the bond market in 2008, a 238-bed not-for- profit acute-care hospital in Pennsylvania was at risk of canceling several acquisitions of imaging equipment. SFS offered a fair-market value lease that achieved off-balance sheet treatment, an important criteria for their financing.
Case Study A leading US respiratory hospital and research center, which was acquiring a variety of advanced imaging and image management technology, needed its financing to be on a tax-exempt basis. A method for charge-back to internal departments for the cost of the equipment was also required. SFS structured a $13 million tax-exempt lease for which the financing was on multiple lease schedules to facilitate hospital charge-back needs.

Case Study SFS recently funded and underwrote a $42.5 million senior term loan for the holding company that indirectly owns a power plant in New Mexico. As the sole capital provider in this holding company financing structure, the original operating company debt was not impacted. Using this approach, SFS was able to demonstrate our unique capability to ideally serve the customer’s needs.
Case Study An owner and operator of a wind-powered electricity generation facility found significant value in the ability to obtain both capital and an innovative product solution from Siemens. While Siemens Energy provided the wind turbine equipment, as well as a five-year warranty, SFS committed a $35 million senior secured term loan, creating a one-stop-shop for the customer. Case Study Leveraging our established relationship with a large US power company, SFS and a major project finance bank acted as joint lead arrangers on a $90 million loan for a power plant in Colorado.

SFS Knows Industry Finance The following case studies demonstrate solutions for the industry sector: Case Study A large US utility needed financing to acquire additional rail cars for transportation of coal to its coal-fired electric generating facilities. SFS delivered a 15-year, $17.3 million structured tax lease solution with a service component, allowing the company to acquire the additional rail cars. This structure also enabled the company to centralize the disbursement of payments for rail car maintenance services. Case Study A municipality began a project financed by a revenue bond to build a new water-treatment facility. The project was over budget and the municipality needed to finance the cost overruns as well as the original revenue bond to be able to complete the project. SFS structured a private placement general obligation bond enabling the municipality to continue the project and work with Siemens Water Technologies (SWT) as vendor of choice. SFS financing of $4.9 million included the cost overruns, SWT equipment, and a refinance of the previously issued revenue bonds, allowing the municipality to complete the project on time and without additional cost increases.
Case Study A US steel company engaged Siemens Voest Alpine Industries (VAI) for onsite maintenance and service of its mill facility. SFS structured a 15-year, $3 million creative financing solution for Siemens VAI by identifying and taking advantage of local tax incentives, making it possible for the customer to secure long-term, on-site, maintenance and service contract with the company.
