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 best bidder who has submitted a bid in accordance with the terms of the Ordinance and this Notice of Bond Sale.

No bid for less than 99% of the par value of the Bonds, plus accrued interest from the original date of the Bonds to the date of delivery at the rate or rates named in the bid, shall be considered. No conditional bid 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 herein fixed, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter for 30 days until a satisfactory bid has been received, but during such period no bid which provides an equal or higher net interest cost to the County than the best bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered.

In the opinion of Barnes & Thornburg LLP, under existing laws, regulations, judicial decisions and rulings, interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income under Section 103 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, (the “Code”) for federal income tax purposes. In addition, the interest on the Bonds is exempt from income taxation in the State of Indiana for all purposes except the state financial institutions tax. The Bonds are subject to the Code, as amended, as in effect on the date of their issuance, which imposes limitations on the issuance of obligations such as the Bonds under federal tax law. The County has covenanted to comply with those limitations to the extent required to preserve the exclusion of interest on the Bonds from gross income for federal income tax purposes.

The County has not prepared an official statement relating to the bonds or any other offering material in connection with the sale of the bonds. The purchase of the bonds will be required to certify that it is a sophisticated investor and that it will not sell, convey, pledge or otherwise transfer the bonds without compliance with applicable securities laws.
