State officials ditched plans to use private equity when it became apparent that such a financing model would produce tolls that were twice as high or higher than the current rates, Layne said.The mostly public equity project involves interest costs.
“If we did attract equity, it was going to be very expensive,” he said.
Rather, the state now plans to create a special nonprofit corporation, controlled by appointed board members, that will issue debt for the work. Layne said he will serve as chairman of the corporation. The state will own the road and maintain it.
The public contribution will come from a transportation fund that McDonnell established with bonds intended for public-private partnerships and “mega” transportation projects.Who carries the burden of this interest expense? Please tell me, Governor. The only role for US 460 Mobility Partners is designing and building the road.
"The private-sector team will design and build the project at a fixed cost by a fixed date and will take significant risks associated with delivering the project.Given America's longtime experience with road building, I find it hard to believe there are significant risks in the Governor's contract. What's 460 Mobility Partner's fee for building the new 460? Is it 3% of the project, $42 million? Might it be more?
VDOT, in coordination with the Office of Transportation Public-Private Partnerships, procured the project under Virginia's Public-Private Transportation Act, which allows the Commonwealth to partner with the private sector to finance, design and build transportation improvements.The Commonwealth brings the lion's share of funding. One could view Virginia as Santa Claus in this deal.
Leafly’s founders established a second business–Privateer Holdings, believed to be the only private-equity firm focused exclusively on marijuana. It is closing its first-round investment pool of $7 million, which it intends to use to buy existing marijuana-related businesses. One possibility is a vaporizer manufacturer, a mainstay of the medical-user community, because it creates steam (much like the vaporizers of our childhood), instead of smoke.

Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Carlyle Group (NYSE:CG) are among a number of defendants that will go before United States District Judge Edward Harrington in Boston, for what they say are legitimate private-equity practices against investor allegations that buyout firms and their bankers colluded to rig offers on takeovers, according to Bloomberg.
Carlyle’s growing natural resources investing platform includes energy mezzanine financing, energy infrastructure & power generation (Cogentrix), and commodities (Vermillion).
The collateralized loan obligation market has snapped back briskly, with a $620 million vehicle from The Carlyle Group capping a year when U.S. volume was on track to nearly quadruple to more than $50 billion in new CLO issuance.
But the leveraged loan market will need continued health in this instrument. According to Mark Okada, co-founder and chief investment officer at Highland Capital, 90 percent of existing CLOs will come to the end of their reinvestment periods by the end of 2014, 80 percent of them by the end of 2013.
Unlike four years ago, Obama now is accepting money from corporations to help pay for the festivities, and there are no limits on those donations.
Private-equity firms are using almost as much debt to fund acquisitions as they did before the financial crisis, as return-hungry investors rush to buy bonds and loans backing those takeovers.
The rise in borrowed money, or leverage, heralds the possibility of juicy returns for buyout groups. Ominously, the surge also brings back memories of the last credit binge around six years ago, which saddled dozens of companies with huge levels of debt. Some companies laden with debt by private-equity firms in the mid 2000s foundered during the recession.
But the more a business borrows, the more it must spend to make debt payments, leading some to default when earnings decline.
In the past six months, the percentage (of PEU equity) has fallen to 33%, according to Thomson Reuters, close to the 31% average in 2006 and the 30% average in 2007.
The company, which was acquired by private equity firm Carlyle Group LP in 2005, said it has agreed to be bought by a group of its senior secured lenders, but hopes to see what results from an auction supervised by the bankruptcy court.Carlyle closed on LifeCare weeks before Hurricane Katrina struck, filling New Orleans with toxic gumbo. LifeCare Hospital had the largest number of patient deaths, 25 from Katrina. This fact was omitted from the Bush White House Lesson Learned report. The author, Frances Townsend, continues to ascend in the political and corporate stratosphere.
Carlyle Capital CorporationCarlyle's latest bankruptcies are in the health arena, dental and long term acute care. Both deals had plenty of time for Carlyle to show their operating capabilities. Each imploded under the heavy weight of debt.

Bribes fail to teach respect and responsibility. In place of respect and responsibility, many of today's kids are cultivating a sense of entitlement, which is a "prescription for a lifetime of unhappiness."
Both rewards and punishments are controlling ways of raising children." Although rewards may sound preferable, she argues, they're just the flip side of punishment and don't produce lasting change. Bribing children and doling out rewards can prompt temporary compliance, she adds, but they don't foster decision making skills, competency, or autonomy.Rubenstein's PEU house of cards is built on greed, paying interest instead of taxes, and preferred tax status, which makes private equity firms virtual nonprofits. Rubenstein and his billionaire PEU peers have their version of Race to the Top, the Forbes Richest List.

Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week, according to a copy of the company’s policy obtained by The Huffington Post.
Under the policy, slated to take effect in January, Walmart also reserves the right to eliminate health care coverage for certain workers if their average workweek dips below 30 hours -- something that happens with regularity and at the direction of company managers.
Walmart declined to disclose how many of its roughly 1.4 million U.S. workers are vulnerable to losing medical insurance under its new policy. In an emailed statement, company spokesman David Tovar said Walmart had “made a business decision” not to respond to questions.
