######## surrounding the article denotes it is a “press release” and was not written by Leasing News nor information verified, but from the source noted. When an article is signed by the writer, it is considered a “by line.” It reflects the opinion and research of the writer. It is considered “bias” as it is the writer’s viewpoint.


Jules and Associates, Los Angeles, California
Bulletin Board Complaint

This concerns a $230,879.34 lease for:
One (1) set of internally illuminated fabricated aluminum letters with logo and One {1) set of non-illuminated foam letters with logo. One (1) single faced non illuminated menu board display. Furnish Kitchen Equipment and design New Grid Ceiling, Two Rest Rooms, Two 6 Ton HVAC Units along with various repairs and installation. Firefly Technologies Phoenix Point of Sale Software (Exhibit A” for the lease)

for Jensen's Complete Shopping, Inc. 102 S. Sunrise Way
Palm Springs, CA 92262

The lessee has had three leases with Jules and Associates, and in the beginning stated in writing they want to exercise the 1% purchase option, and on April 11, 2011 Adam Zack, Vice-President wrote a letter of notice to purchase for 1%. It is also obvious from the nature
of the equipment it is not something you want to return, particularly with a 1% purchase option.

In this lease, the letter was not certified, and was considered late:
Paul Richards, Jules & Associates, Regional Manager responded, "…you were required to give your 180 day notice on Lease Agreement No. 20070221, Schedule 1 but I don’t see that you gave it. On Lease Agreement No. 20070221, Schedule 2 it doesn’t end until 2013 so you have plenty of time to give your notification on that one. You had given proper notice on the previous three deals that we closed out in the past but give me a call and we can discuss Schedule 1."


1% is $$2,308.79. The monthly payments are $6,743.99 plus California sales/use tax for 36 months (.02921). The additional six months are $40,463.94 and if the 1% notice is not made or purchase not concluded, the contract calls for an additional three months.

Leasing News made several telephone calls, with one call answered with the promise to be returned, but was not. There were many emails since August 18, 2011, for a comment or a statement. None was received.

This appears to be what Leasing News has written editorials and been campaigning regarding the abuse of Evergreen Clauses. As in all Bulletin Board Complaint, we leave it up to readers to make their own opinion, but to Leasing News the complaint appears legitimate.

Irene Hurricane

Hurricane Alley

I have asked those on LinkedIn that I know to let Leasing News readers know how Hurricane Irene affected them.

My son Dash is stationed out of Norfolk, Virginia, leaves at Virginia Beach with his girlfriend, 2 1/2 miles from the beach. He was more worried about his Columbia boat that he secured very well than anything. He said they took in everything around the house that could turn into a projectile. He has a generator, as do many of his neighbors, as he says electrical outages are common. He says it was very windy and raining hard.

When he went to bed the eye of the storm was in his area, but they were awoken at 12:30am when their house alarm went off, power outage, who looked around the house but no damage, and the power went on a 4:30am, but it was very windy. He said in the morning he and neighbors helped each other out, clearing up the leaves and branches, and other debris. He said it was not as bad as expected. His tomato garden with vegetables and other plants, he said was 20% destroyed, which he was surprised as he thought he would lose it all.

I was communicating with Gerry Egan, Executive Director, National Association of Equipment Leasing, who emailed:

"Thanks for asking. For us, personally, in Raleigh, about 125 miles inland, hurricane Irene was pretty much a non-event. Very heavy rain and very gusty winds with numerous short-term power outages but no damage or real inconvenience.

"Of much greater concern to me was the earthquake we had earlier in the week. I'd never been in an earthquake before and certainly didn't expect to feel one in Raleigh. Again, though, no damage.

"So, this year thus far, North Carolina has had forest fires, tornadoes, an earthquake and a hurricane. I assume pestilence and plague must be on the schedule soon!"

Companies Who Do Not Notify Lessee regarding termination
nor have such a standard for their discounters

The latest Bulletin Board Complaint centered around an Evergreen Clause requiring a 120 day certified letter regarding the 1% residual of the lease (Jules and Associates—see first story above), the lessee Adam Zack contacted the California Grocery Association as he wanted to get the word out. Here is a copy of his email:

"I have been dealing with a leasing company that pretty much has jacked us around and I am not too pleased about. Who can I talk to at CGA to warn other grocers about the 'evergreen' clause in leases that most normal people forget about? There is a guy named Kit Menkin who is behind who is a big advocate against tricks that the leasing companies use on businesses who might be willing to help us out, too."

It was requested Leasing News put together a list of those companies who do not notify the lessee
and/or use language to confuse, perhaps to deceive, with the result an automatic continuation
for an additional twelve months of payments.  Several companies have even invoked
the twelve months on a $1.00 purchase option or an Equipment Finance Agreement.


ACC Capital, Midvale, Utah
IFC Credit, Morton Grove, Illinois
Jules and Associates
LEAF Financial Group, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Marlin Business Leasing, Mount Laurel, New Jersey

ACC Capital, Midvale, Utah---This company is no longer in business, although its portfolio is being wound down, according to its owner Loni Lowder; the receivables are being collected by creditors. Lowder today is an employee, manager, Stalwart Contract Finance, Salt Lake City, Utah. To date, all Evergreen Clause complaints have been satisfied.

IFC Credit, Morton Grove, Illinois---This company is in bankruptcy, appeared many times in the Leasing News Bulletin Board prior to filing bankruptcy, but engaged in Evergreen Clauses, and unfortunately a recent example is a complaint to the trustee, stemming from M&T Bank lease assignment expiring and notify the lessee that they did not notify about the residual, which was a $1.00. This has happened many times with other banks who have taken over the IFC Credit Corporation portfolio. Calls and letters to the trustee and attorneys have gone unanswered.

Jules and Associates, Los Angeles, California--- Jules and Associates, Los Angeles, California---A repeat customer, who notified Jules and Associates on a lease, but was not before the 180 day expiration, so Jules and Associates instead of the 1% due for the residual ($2,308.79) charged six more payments or $40,463.94, and if 1% is not paid in this time, they will be subject to another three months.

LEAF Financial Group, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania---It appears this company is in a more wind down phase, moving its operation of LEAF Commercial Credit with basically the same management. There have been complaints about the Evergreen Clause, including a recent one for an Equipment Finance Agreement!

Marlin Business Leasing, Mount Laurel, New Jersey---The actual SEC filings state the profit earned from Evergreen Clause, primarily from copier leases. Complaints have been received about this practice in addition to the SEC financial statement filings.

Leasing News has contacted over 50 leasing companies, several more than five times, who have not responded with their policy regarding notification to lessees. The practice of imposing extra payments may be more widespread than the companies named above.

Leasing 102
by Mr. Terry Winders, CLP

Pressure to be sloppy

In these economic times it is not wise to drop your guar and allow things to happen that will give you a potential loss in the future. Chief among these is not checking out the vendor or the equipment prior to agreeing to lease the equipment. We all are hungry for business and in these times----fraud is easy.

New, in business, vendors should be visited and checked out. Questions that should be asked in addition to requesting their financials (if they will give them to you) is who has title to the equipment. Some new vendors do not get the right to sell the equipment and pass title until the manufacture is paid. Some States have protection for you in theses circumstances but not all.

The description of the equipment should always carry the date of manufacture. Many times the equipment is listed as new but only because title or ownership has not passed. Rental units are sometimes listed as new but have been used under a rental agreement by the lessee for many months.

The actual location of use should be verified and an equipment inspection should be made in six months to verify location and use. It is also an excellent marketing call, but on occasion discovers many problems that if left unchallenged could lead to serious problems. It is amazing what lessees present at lease origination and then change their minds and the location or use for your equipment.

Be careful of equipment that is already in the hands of the lessee before you enter the picture. Check out the date of delivery and then check the UCC filings to make sure you get clear title and/or a proper lien filing. Prior blanket filings can take your equipment in a default. You may need to request a replacement for the equipment before you lease it.

Lately I have seen some leasing companies failing to describe the equipment on the lease agreement even when they have an invoice with the full description. It is hard to match up an invoice if the description is not the same. I have written so many times on the sloppy descriptions or incomplete descriptions on lease agreements so it continues to be a major problem in defaults.

Delivery is different than acceptance so to combine them into a document with one date and one signature is stupid unless the equipment can be accepted upon delivery. The purpose of an acceptance certificate is to make sure the lessee has had time to inspect and test the equipment prior to agreeing to pay the lease payments. The disclaimer of warrantees and guarantees of performance in your lease agreement are hard to enforce if it can be proven that the lessee was not given time to review the equipment prior to signing the acceptance. Go out of your way to make sure the delivery date and acceptance date are different.

A combined D&A should have three date lines, one for delivery, one for acceptance, and one for the date the document is signed.

All signatures should be verified and identified. Scribbles are difficult to define as whose signatures it is so it should carry a title of authority and a printed name so identification can be made. Also the date of the signatures should be at the time of signing. “No back dating of anything.” I repeat: “No back dating of anything,” plus any changes should be initialed by both lessee and lessor.

A copy of the completed lease contract needs to be sent to the lessee and if possible proof that they received it. Also if the lease has been assigned or sold proper notice has been sent.

Many lessors’ think that many of the safeguards recommended here are too expensive or time consuming to be implemented. If that is true then they need to increase their lease loss reserve by 3 or 4 points to cover the losses they will incur. Doing business correctly has many benefits and insures a leasing company will survive and prosper especially in these difficult economic times.

Career Crossroad---“Thinking about Leaving”

I am contemplating exploring new job opportunities, but my employer has treated me well and I do enjoy working with my colleagues, however, I do think it is time to move on. What are your thoughts?

Making the decision to potentially leave your current employer is never an easy task. Take stock of your goals and objectives in seeking new employment. Making a move should NEVER JUST be about money (if you are successful, eventually the money will come) * …

Are you being appreciated, recognized and heard? If you are looking to move up the Career Ladder, is there a clear cut path for advancement? You must determine if your “needs” / goals are being met AND if not, voice your concerns.

If your employer does not address these issues or is not able to meet your objectives, it may be a good idea to consider exploring other career opportunities.

*If your employer is late on commission payouts OR any type of compensation - RUN.

Bank Beat---No Failures on Friday
by Christopher Menkin

There have been several Fridays this year where there were no banks closed. Except for the closing of Gelt Financial dba Public Savings Bank, Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, as the officers were Jewish Orthodox and as Friday was Sabbath, the FDIC announces the take over mostly on Friday at 5pm when they actually walks in and take over, getting ready most often for the "new" bank to open on Saturday (most banks today are open on Saturday.)

The good news is the number of "problem" institutions has declined from 888 to 865 this year. This is the first time since the third quarter of 2006 that the number of "problem" banks fell; first time in 19 quarters.

Total assets of "problem" institutions declined from $397 billion to $372 billion. Twenty-two insured institutions failed during the second quarter, four fewer than in the previous quarter, and the fewest since the first quarter of 2009.

The FDIC also reported Insured banks and thrifts charged off $28.8 billion in uncollectible loans during the quarter, down $20.9 billion (42.1 percent) from a year earlier. This also resulted in commercial banks and savings institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) reporting an aggregate profit of $28.8 billion in the second quarter of 2011, a $7.9 billion improvement from the $20.9 billion in net income the industry reported in the second quarter of 2010

Enforcement actions have also been looking better, as well as community involvement reports.

Asset quality showed further improvement as noncurrent loans and leases (those 90 days or more past due or in nonaccrual status) fell for a fifth consecutive quarter. Insured banks and thrifts charged off $28.8 billion in uncollectible loans during the quarter, down $20.9 billion (42.1 percent) from a year earlier.

The Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) balance was positive for the first time in two years. The DIF balance — the net worth of the fund — rose from a negative $1 billion to a positive $3.9 billion during the second quarter.

There still remains a major disparity between the "large" and "smaller banks" as the 10 largest insured banks accounted for 82 percent ($229 billion) of the growth in large-denomination deposits. Much of the money comes from larger corporations who are sitting on their cash, here and overseas, as well as reports much is also from consumers, creating an "all time high of $9.8 trillion at the end of June.

“We projected this phenomenal growth in deposits and the shift from term to liquid accounts in the analysis we produce last year,” said Dan Geller, Ph.D. Executive Vice President at Market Rates Insight, “the reason we are witnessing such growth and shift in deposits despite meager interest rates is because consumers are very fearful about the economy, and are fleeing to the safety and security of insured and liquid deposits.”

Federal Reserve chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, said Friday," “The country would be well served by a better process for making fiscal decisions.” Certainly an understatement, and definitely "safe" to observe.

This Day in American History

    1708 - Haverhill, Mass., was destroyed by French & Indians.
    1758 - New Jersey Legislature formed the 1st Indian reservation.
    1776 - General George Washington retreated during the night from Long Island to New York City withdrawing from Manhattan to Westchester.
    1786- Shay’s Rebellion: Daniel Shays, veteran of the battles of Lexington, Bunker Hill, Ticonderoga and Saratoga, was one of the leaders of more than 1,000 rebels who sought redress of grievances during the depres­sion days of 1786—87. He began organizing his followers with speeches this day. They prevented general court sessions and on Sept 26 they prevented Supreme Court sessions at Spring­field, MA. On Jan 25, 1787, with 1100 men, they attacked the federal arsenal at Springfield; Feb 2, Shays’s troops were routed and fled. Shays was sentenced to death but pardoned June 13, 1788.The uprising had been caused by the harsh economic conditions faced by Massachusetts farmers, who sought reforms and the issuance of paper money. Shay later he received a small pension for services in the American Revolution.
    1809-Birthday of Oliver Wendell Holmes, physician and author, father of Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, born at Cambridge, MA. Died at Boston, MA, Oct. 8,1894. “ A moment’s insight, “ he wrote, “ is sometimes worth a life’s experience.”.
    1815- Anna Ella Carroll birthday, writer and publicist for Union cause during the Civil War. She is best known for her pamphlet which outlined the proposition that the Southern states would resume their original places in the United States once the rebellion of the Civil War was over, precisely the course adopted by Abraham Lincoln in superseding Congress in the conduct of the war. She is credited with the plan to invade the South along the Tennessee river. Her tombstone reads "Maryland's Most Distinguished Lady." However, she died financially poor and anonymous in 1893.

    1817-The first “abolition” newspaper was the Philanthropist, published and edited by Charles Osborn, which appeared in Mount Pleasant, OH. It published “ An Appeal to Philanthropists” by Benjamin Lundy, which is said by some to be the most powerful abolition appeal ever made.
    1839-In January , 53 Africans were seized near modern-day Sierra Leone, taken to Cuba and sold as slaves. While being transferred to another part of the island on the ship Amistad, led by the African, Cinque, they seized control of the ship, telling the crew to take them back to Africa. However, the crew secretly changed course and the ship landed at Long Island, NY, where it and its
‘cargo” were seized as salvage this day. The Amistad was towed to New Haven, CT where the Africans were imprisoned and a lengthy legal battle began to determine if they were property to be returned to Cuba or free men. John Quincy Adams took their case all the way to the Supreme Court, where on Mar 9, 1841, it was determined that they were free and could return to Africa.
    1852- The Latter Day Saints first published their doctrine of "celestial marriage," popularly known as polygamy. The Mormon Church maintained this teaching until the Manifest of 1890 (and later Congressional legislation) outlawed the practice.
    1861- The first Confederate forts to surrender in the Civil War were Fork Clark and Fort Hatteras on Hatteras Island, NC, guarding Pamlico Sound. They surrendered to Flag Officer Silas H. Stringham and General Benjamin Franklin Butler, who had captured the garrison with 715 men, 31 heavy guns, and 1,000 stands of arms.
    1862-(29th-30th) At the second Battle of Bull Run, the maneuvers of General Stonewall Jackson and his teamwork with General Robert E. Lee were too much for the 45,000 Union troops under General John Pope, who broke and retreated to Washington, DC. Union losses were 1724 killed, 8372 wounded, 5958 missing. Confederate losses stood at 1481 killed, 7627 wounded, 89 missing. Second Battle of Bull Run (Manassas) begins.
    1894-Birthday of African-American sociologist E. Franklin Fraiser..
    1896-History records chop suey was concocted in New York City by the chef of Chinese Ambassador Li Hung-chang, who devised the dish to appeal to both American and Asian tastes. Chop suey was unknown in China at the time.
    1904-Third modern Olympic Games opens in St Louis .These Games were originally scheduled for Chicago. However, President Theodore Roosevelt intervened on behalf of St. Louis so that the Games would be in conjunction with the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition. Again the Games were upstages, this time by the St. Louis World's Fair, and critics believed this would kill the fourth Olympics from taking place. The marathon included the first two black Africans to compete in the Olympics - two Zulu tribesman named Lentauw (real name: Len Taunyane)and Yamasani (real name: Jan Mashiani). They wore bibs 35 and 36, respectively. 
The only problem was that these two tribesmen were not in town to compete in the Olympics - they were actually the sideshow! Yes, they were imported by the exposition as part of the Boer War exhibit (both were really students at Orange Free State in South Africa, but no one wanted to believe that these tribesmen could actually be educated - it would have ruined the whole image). 
Lentauw finished ninth and Yamasani came in twelfth. This was a disappointment, as many observers were sure Lentauw could have done better - that is if he had not been chased nearly a mile off course by a large, aggressive canine! 
The marathon was over, but there is still one more little story to go along with this: 
It seems that two of the patrolling officials driving in a brand-new automobile were forced to swerve to avoid hitting one of the runners - they ended up going down an embankment and were severely injured. 
In the end, the St. Louis Olympics (along with the previous Paris games) proved to be such a disaster that the Olympic Committee was forced to hold interim Olympic games in 1906 at Athens, in an attempt to revive the flagging Olympic movement. These games were not numbered, but were attended by twenty countries and put the Olympics back on a steady course to success. 
An interesting useless side note: Iced tea made its debut at the 1904 Exposition. It seems that it was so hot during the Expo that the staff at the Far East Tea House couldn't even give away their product. 
    1920-Birthday of Charlie Parker. Clint Eastwood made a movie about his life. Known as "The Bird," he and Dizzy Gillespie, trumpet player extraordinaire and great showman, are credited with "inventing" the style "Be-Bop." Definitely way ahead of his time, and quite melodic ( his record albums with strings from 1947 to 1952 produced by Norman Granz are jazz classics ). There is controversy on how he got his name. Some say it was from sitting in the backyard of "speakeasies" in Kansas City, Kansas, where he was raised, fingering his alto sax. Others say it was his love of chicken. He was addicted to Heroin, as many of the "Be-Bop" players were. The movie "The Man with the Golden Arm" was a take off of his life, not Chet Baker, according to the writer of the movie. He was taken to Camarillo for the Insane, where he kicked the habit, for a short time. The club Birdland in Manhattan was named after him. It is told one of his ideas to make the club more profitable was to have a Country and Western band come and play during the breaks. Parker was a profound influence upon Miles Davis, who started playing with his band at the age of 17.

    1944---McVElGH, JOHN J. Medal of Honor
Rank and organization: Sergeant, U .S. Army, Company H, 23d Infantry, 2d Infantry Division. Place and date: Near Brest, France, 29 August 1944. Entered service at: Philadelphia, Pa. Birth: Philadelphia, Pa. G.O. No.: 24, 6 April 1945. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty near Brest, France, on 29 August 1944. Shortly after dusk an enemy counterattack of platoon strength was launched against 1 platoon of Company G, 23d Infantry. Since the Company G platoon was not dug in and had just begun to assume defensive positions along a hedge, part of the line sagged momentarily under heavy fire from small arms and 2 flak guns, leaving a section of heavy machineguns holding a wide frontage without rifle protection. The enemy drive moved so swiftly that German riflemen were soon almost on top of 1 machinegun position. Sgt. McVeigh, heedless of a tremendous amount of small arms and flak fire directed toward him, stood up in full view of the enemy and directed the fire of his squad on the attacking Germans until his position was almost overrun. He then drew his trench knife. and single-handed charged several of the enemy. In a savage hand-to-hand struggle, Sgt. McVeigh killed 1 German with the knife, his only weapon, and was advancing on 3 more of the enemy when he was shot down and killed with small arms fire at pointblank range. Sgt. McVeigh's heroic act allowed the 2 remaining men in his squad to concentrate their machinegun fire on the attacking enemy and then turn their weapons on the 3 Germans in the road, killing all 3. Fire from this machinegun and the other gun of the section was almost entirely responsible for stopping this enemy assault, and allowed the rifle platoon to which it was attached time to reorganize, assume positions on and hold the high ground gained during the day.
