Phone: (630) JUN JUN PMA s Cash Flow Management Program gives Participants the ability to steer things from the top while leaving the analysis and time consuming details to a professional portfolio advisor. This analysis is based on proprietary methods that review historical data, determine trends and project future needs. 1. Historical data analysis PMA s detailed investigation of the local government s historic cash flow data ultimately provides a complete and reliable picture from which investment decisions are based. This historical analysis includes: Reviewing three years of cash-based historical monthly data by fund. Determining trends. Isolating anomalies. Incorporating the Participant s specific information (e.g. A/P cycle, payroll cycle, debt schedules, calendar, etc.) to help make the plan as accurate as possible. 2. Daily Cash Flow Construction Once the historical data analysis has been performed, monthly revenue and expenditure (r/e) percentages are applied to your current fiscal year budget to project monthly r/e figures for the current and future years. Finally, specific dates and amounts (e.g., accounts payable, debt schedules, sales tax receipts, property tax dates) are identified, placed on the calendar and included in the final daily cash flow plan. 3. Investment Schedule Creation Once the cash flow plan has been constructed, PMA builds an investment schedule that optimizes your local government s returns beginning with the next fiscal year. This investment schedule allows for efficient execution of investments and helps extend maturity lengths in order to capitalize on the longer end of the yield curve. 4. Competitive Bidding PMA s portfolio advisors work closely with FIT Participants to competitively bid investments across PMA s extensive network of over 1,000 financial institutions.

Pre-Execution Before the bond closing date, PMA analyzes all relevant aspects of a local government s project and bond issue process to develop an optimal investment strategy. Understanding a local government s cash flow and drafting an accurate draw schedule is critical, allowing the local government to extend the maturity of its investments in conjunction with projected expenditures. PMA also identifies potential arbitrage issues and concerns in an effort to determine a disbursement process that best meets the Participant s needs. Some of the preliminary considerations include: Will the local government qualify for a spend-down exception and the three-year temporary period? When will the project be started and completed? When will the bonds close? Are multiple funding sources available? What is the local government s investment policy? 2. Execution In this stage, PMA implements the approved plan. PMA s extensive network of banks and dealers allows for highly competitive bidding of investments. PMA has a network of over: 1,000 banks nationally with competitive institutions located in South Dakota. 20 securities dealers. 20 corporate securities dealers. 10 municipal securities dealers. 3. Ongoing Management Each month, PMA facilitates disbursement of proceeds to fund current expenses and furnishes reports on investments, arbitrage, and bookkeeping. PMA continually monitors a local government s investments and project status to determine if we can enhance interest earnings along the way. 4. Project Completion At the end of a project, PMA prepares final documentation and reporting. PMA also provides the local government with a final arbitrage calculation for presentation to the IRS.
