ELA Says New Biz Grew Almost 16% in 3rd Quarter


Equipment Leasing Industry 3rd Quarter 2003 Report Shows Greater Improvement Over Previous Quarter, Previous Year


Industry Leaders Report 15.9 percent in new business volume compared to 3rd Quarter 2002



Arlington, Virginia - - The Equipment Leasing Association's (ELA) Third Quarter 2003 Performance Indicators Report (PIR) shows that new business volume grew at 15.9 percent when compared to the 3rd quarter 2002. Total net portfolio also increased 2.3 percent, and the economy is finally showing steady improvement. The PIR study is conducted quarterly by ELA, which provides a variety of data, including customized market analyses, to ELA members and organizations involved in the $208 billion equipment leasing industry.


 The survey is conducted among approximately 20 major leasing companies ( members of ELA. editor) on a quarterly basis, affording trend analysis across all major performance areas.


 Other 3rd QPIR Findings:


 The total number of employees declined 7.97 percent as companies have streamlined their staff, though at a slower rate than in the last quarter.


 Credit approval ratios were up 50 basis points in 2Q 2003 compared to last year.


 Average losses decreased 30 basis points when compared to the previous year.


 Lease payments past 30 days increased slightly when compared to 3Q 2002.



"Q3 performance is greatly improved over last year's third quarter, and even Q2 of this year," said Ralph Petta, Vice President of Industry Services for ELA. "Since the PIR is the best snapshot of what is happening in the industry, ELA is very encouraged that the key metrics are showing consistent improvement."



The PIR tracks the performance of prominent leasing organizations in six key areas. Because the same companies were tracked and used in the analysis, the PIR provides fairly reliable trend analysis. Each illustration reflects the data provided by those companies responding to that particular question. Typically, not every company polled responds to every question.



Media wishing to receive more information on the PIR or a copy of the associated graphs and charts (available for reprint), please contact Suzanne Jackson at 434-972-7278 or To access this and other industry information, visit or call ELA at (703) 516-8380.



Financial decision makers needing more information on leasing should visit, which provides information on how to choose a leasing company, the top 10 questions to ask before signing a lease, a glossary of terms, and more.


Organized in 1961, the Equipment Leasing Association (ELA) is a non-profit association representing companies involved in the dynamic equipment leasing and finance industry. ELA's mission is to promote the leasing industry as a major source of funds for capital investment in the United States and abroad. Headquartered in Arlington, Va., ELA has more than 800 member companies and a staff of 27 professionals. Equipment leasing is projected to be a $208 billion industry in 2003. Visit ELA online at

Leasing Licenses and Statutes


“It seems like we've beaten this subject to death lately but apparently it

has a life of its own. I've spent more time with the CFLL issue then I care

to admit.


“If you are only offering "True Leases" (and they must be true leases) then

a license is not required. If however, even though your lease documents may

refer to your lease as a Statutory Finance Lease under Article 2A, if your

transaction can possibly be construed to be a "loan", then you better have

the license if you are "negotiating or performing any act as broker in

connection with loans made by a finance lender". California Financial Code,

Section 22000-22780 explains in detail the requirements, definitions,

penalties and process for applying for the license.

While it is true that


. From everything I've read it seems that the majority of attorneys recommend getting this license if only to avoid serious potential penalties. To me it seems like cheap insurance. As a California Community Bank that has recently started offering a

non-recourse discount Broker program for $1.00 out and guaranteed PUTs, it

has been determined by our Bank that the Brokers we accept, "must" have a

license or be in the process of getting it.”


Bob Robichaud

Asst. Vice President and

Lease Financing Officer

PFF Bank & Trust






“Kit, it's stated in today's newsletter "here's a list of the licenses

required in each state that we have gathered so far" but I could not

find the information. I'm convinced about California's requirements but

I would be interested to know more about all the other states.”

Looking for “Sharp” Entry Level Leasing Person in L.A.


I was hoping you might know of a sharp, entry-level leasing person in Los

Angeles for a Leasing Manager for small ticket captive.

It will take an "on the street, not in your seat" sales person who is

breaking into leasing and is looking to break into a captive.

The salary is in only the high 40's but there is a bonus and the benefits

are great, big captive, do you know anyone that would fit this? They would

only need to have an understanding of leasing, because they prefer someone

who has high energy and a strong work ethic over a "number cruncher"

anyone come to mind?

Simple swearing-in for Schwarzenegger


    If you get a chance tune in to any news channel on Monday, Nov. 17,

starting at 3 AM PST. We will be bring you the Schwarzenegger Inauguration, live

from the Capitol Steps in Sacramento. The actual event starts at 11 AM and

will last about 45 mins, but there will be live news feeds, before and after the


    Our set up will start this Friday and go for 3 days, weather permitting.

If it rains we have to move the event to the Memorial Auditorium Sunday night

after 10 AM. We have to wait for a cheerleading competition to end, before

we move in. So let's hope it doesn't rain or we will definitely be doing an

all nighter.

    Parrish and Associates and Hartmann Studios will be providing all the

staging, lighting, sound, outdoor LED screens, a 4 camera switched video feed to

satellites for all the networks to pick up as well as feeding sound and video

to the news organizations on site. We will also provide 4000 chairs for the

audience and the most important bathrooms.

    This will be the second time we have participated in an Arnold event, the

first being the "First One Hundred Days" which took place during the campaign

in Sacramento.

    You can imagine how much this event will cost, but not to worry, the

Schwarzenegger campaign gets to pay the bill. The tax payers do not start picking

up the Governor's expenses until after the Inauguration.


Hope all is well with you and I look forward to seeing you soon,

This Day in American History




        1732-The Library Company of Philadelphia signed a contract with its first librarian. Founded by Benjamin Franklin and friends in November 1731, the library enrolled members for a fee of 40 shillings but had to wait for its books to arrive from England before beginning full operation.

         1784-Samuel Seabury, 55, was consecrated Bishop of Connecticut and Rhode Island, the first bishop of the American Protestant Episcopal Church, and the first Anglican bishop in America.

        1803 -- American author Jacob Abbott born Hallowell, Maine.Abbott wrote the first fictional series for children, introducing many of the key types and techniques of series books, popularizing the genre virtually single-handedly, and wrote some of the earliest American juveniles deserving of the term "children's literature"

         1832 - The first horse car (a streetcar drawn by horses) was displayed in New York City. The vehicle had room for 30 people in three compartments. The new service traveled Fourth Avenue between Prince and Fourteenth Streets.

        1851 - “Call me Ishmael. Some years ago -- never mind how long precisely -- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world...” Thus begins Herman Melville’s book "Moby-Dick; or, The Whale", which was first published in New York City by Harper & Brothers on this day. The complex, but rousing sea story tells the tale of a sea captain’s search for Moby Dick, the great white whale that had once crippled him. The story is told by sailor-narrator Ishmael. Through the pages of "Moby Dick", we meet Ishmael’s bunkmate Queequeg, a whale harpooner from Polynesia; learn everything there is to know about whaling in the nineteenth century; and, of course, about Captain Ahab and his obsession with Moby Dick.  In 1846, he published his first novel, Typee, based on his Polynesian adventures. His second book, Omoo (1847), also dealt with the South Seas. The two novels became popular, although his third, Mardi (1849), more experimental in nature, failed to catch on with the public. Melville bought a farm near Nathaniel Hawthorne's house in Massachusetts, and the two became close friends, although they later drifted apart. Melville wrote for journals and continued to publish novels. Moby Dick was coolly received, but his short stories were highly acclaimed. Putnam's Monthly published "Bartleby the Scrivener" in 1853 and "Benito Cereno" in 1855. In 1866, Melville won appointment as a customs inspector in New York, which brought him a stable income. He published several volumes of poetry. He continued to write until his death in 1891, and his last novel, Billy Budd, was not published until 1924.

        1882-Gunslinger Franklin "Buckskin" Leslie shoots the Billy "The Kid" Claiborne dead in the streets of Tombstone, Arizona. (The name of one of Aaron Copland’s work, who’s birthday is today-1900)The town of Tombstone is best known today as the site of the infamous shootout at the O.K. Corral. In the 1880s, however, Tombstone was home to many gunmen who never achieved the enduring fame of Wyatt Earp or Doc Holliday. Franklin "Buckskin" Leslie was one of the most notorious of these largely forgotten outlaws. There are few surviving details about Leslie's early life. The first historical evidence of Leslie's life emerges in 1877, when he became a scout in Arizona. A few years later, Leslie was attracted to the moneymaking opportunities of the booming mining town of Tombstone, where he opened the Cosmopolitan Hotel in 1880. That same year he killed a man named Mike Killeen during a quarrel over Killeen's wife, and he married the woman shortly thereafter. Leslie's reputation as a cold-blooded killer brought him trouble after his drinking companion and fellow gunman John Ringo was found dead in July 1882. Some Tombstone citizens, including a young friend of Ringo's named Billy "The Kid" Claiborne, were convinced that Leslie had murdered Ringo, though they could not prove it. Probably seeking vengeance and the notoriety that would come from shooting a famous gunslinger, Claiborne unwisely decided to publicly challenge Leslie, who shot him dead. The remainder of Leslie's life was equally violent and senseless. After divorcing Killeen in 1887, he took up with a Tombstone prostitute, whom he murdered several years later during a drunken rage. Even by the loose standards of frontier law in Tombstone, the murder of an unarmed woman was unacceptable, and Leslie served nearly 10 years in prison before he was paroled in 1896. After his release, he married again and worked a variety of odd jobs around the West. He reportedly made a small fortune in the gold fields of the Klondike region before he disappeared forever from the historical record.

          1861 -- Historian Frederick Jackson Turner (The Frontier in American History) born Portage, Wisconsin.

        1900- birthday of American composer Aaron Copland , born at Brooklyn, NY. Incorporating American folk music and, later, the 12-tone system, he strove to create an American music style that was both popular and artistic. He composed ballets, film scores and orchestral works including Fanfare for the Common Man (1942), Appalachian Spring (1944) (for which he won the Pulitzer Prize) and the score for The Heiress (1948) (for which he won an Oscar) and “Billy the Kid.”

 He died Dec 2, 1990, at North Tarrytown, NY.

        1900-Ban Johnson, president of the minor Western League, announced his intention to upgrade its status to a major league and to change its name to the American League.

  1903- The first football game was played in the first football stadium, Harvard Stadium, Cambridge, MA. It was specifically build for football, made

of concrete and the largest steel re-enforced concrete structure in the world at the

time of construction. The stadium had a seating capacity of 40,000.

         1904-Pianist Art Hodes Birthday

         1906 -- Actress Louise Brooks born Cherryvale, Kansas. She is the fourth most written about actress (in terms of major magazine articles) after Clara Bow, Joan Crawford and Colleen Moore.

        1917- Storyville, also known as the District, New Orleans’s red-light district, a series of honky-tonks and sporting house, was shut down by the U.S. Navy

The closing tended to drive jazz musicians out of New Orleans, up

the river, including the Original Dixieland Jass Band that opened at Reisenweber’s Restaurant in New York City. In this year, the group made the first jazz recording, including “ Tiger Rag,” “Barnyard Blues, “ Clarinet Marmalade, “: At the Jazz Band Ball, and “Reisenweber Rag.”

          1919-Birthday of Constance Frances Marie Ockleman, later known as Veronica Lake, born in Brooklyn, N.Y. Lake began appearing in films under the name Constance Keane in 1939; in 1941, she changed her name and was soon a major Hollywood draw, frequently starring opposite Alan Ladd in films like This Gun for Hire (1942), The Glass Key (1942), and The Blue Dahlia (1946). Her career took a nosedive in the late 1940s and early 1950s. She and her husband, director Andre de Toth, filed for bankruptcy. Lake stopped acting and allegedly drank heavily. In the 1960s, a reporter discovered her working at a hotel bar in New York. She later began acting again in small roles and published an autobiography in 1969. She died of hepatitis in 1973.

         1934-Birthday of pianist Ellis Marsalis, New Orleans, LA

        1934-Under the direction of Leopold Stokowski, who was conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Academy of Music, Philadelphia, PA, the symphony No. 1, known as the Negro Folk Symphony, composed by the African-American conductor William Levi Dawson was presented.

        1943 -- During World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Secretary of State Cordell Hull, and all of America's top military brass, narrowly escape disaster aboard the U.S. battleship Iowa, when a live torpedo is accidentally fired at them from a U.S. destroyer. To demonstrate to the president the defensive abilities of the Iowa, the battleship launches a series of weather balloons to use as anti-aircraft targets. Men on the nearby destroyer William D. Porter, under Captain Jesse Walker, are ordered to battle stations and begin shooting down the balloons that the Iowa had missed. Better yet, a simulated torpedo firing was ordered, and the torpedo room obliged. Unfortunately, torpedoer Lawton Dawson neglected to disarm torpedo tube #3, and an armed torpedo was fired at the Iowa. The Iowa rapidly began evasive maneuvers, as all guns were turned on the Porter. Word of the firing reached Roosevelt, who asked that his wheelchair be moved to the ship's railing so that he could watch the torpedo's approach. It exploded behind the ship's massive wake. The Porter is ordered to return to Bermuda, and Captain Walker and the entire crew are arrested by a force of Marines upon docking. President

Roosevelt intervened and the ship was kidded throughout the fleet with signs

saying, “Don’t Shoot, We’re Republicans.” On 10 June 1945, the Porter's hard luck finally ran out. She was sunk by a plane which had (unintentionally) attacked underwater. A Japanese bomber almost made entirely of wood and canvas slipped through the Navy's defense. Having little in the way of metal surfaces, the plane didn't register on radar. A fully loaded kamikaze, it was headed for a ship near the Porter, but just at the last moment veered away and crashed along side the unlucky destroyer. There was a sigh of relief as the plane sunk out of sight, but then it blew up underneath the Porter, opening her hull in the worst possible location. Three hours later, after the last man was off board, the Captain jumped to the safety of a rescue vessel and the ship that almost changed world history slipped astern into 2400 feet of water. Not a single soul was lost in the sinking. After everything else that happened, it was almost as if the ship decided to let her crew off at the end.

         1943-Sid Luckman of the Chicago Bears became the first professional quarterback to pass for more than 400 yards in a single game, throwing for 433 yards and seven touchdowns as the Bears walloped the New York Giants, 56-7.

        1944 - An outstanding array of musicians gathered in Hollywood to record a classic. Tommy Dorsey and orchestra made "Opus No. 1", Victor record number 20-1608. Buddy Rich was the drummer in the session, Buddy DeFranco on sac and clarinet, and Nelson Riddle played trombone on the Sy Oliver arrangement.

        1986 - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced that Ivan Boesky would have to pay $100 million in fines and alleged profits to settle insider-trading charges against him. The settlement was just $6 million less than the entire S.E.C. budget for 1986. Until 1986, Ivan Boesky was one of wealthiest and most successful figures on Wall Street. But, after November 14, 1986, his name was inextricably linked with the scandal and corruption that engulfed the industry during the 1980s. After prison, Boesky divorced his wife and relocated to La Jolla, California. In contrast to Milken and others involved, Boesky has largely avoided public attention since the scandal, though he has surfaced to testify in still-unresolved legal proceedings. History is full of people who manipulated

the system such as Enron, Worldcom, Kozlowski, to just a few recent ones.

         1988- "Murphy Brown" premiered on television. The series lasted ten years. The show often blurred the lines between reality and fiction by dealing with topical issues and including real-life journalists as guests stars playing themselves. Former Vice-President Dan Quayle made a major issue about the character Murphy Brown being an un-married mother. Set in Washington, DC, starred Candice Bergen starred in the title role, as an egotistical, seasoned journalist working for the fictitious TV newsmagazine show “FYI.” Also featured were Grant Shaud as the show’s high-strung producer, Miles Silverberg (later replaced by Lily Tomlin), Faith Ford as the former Miss America, Corky Sherwood (and later Miles’ bride), Joe Regalbuto as Murphy’s neurotic friend, reporter Frank Fontana, Charles Kimbrough as “FYI”’s uptight anchorman, Jim Dial and Pat Corley as Phil, owner of the local watering hole. Colleen Dewhurst appeared as Murphy’s mother and Robert Pastorelli appeared as Eldin Bernecky, perfectionist housepainter and aspiring artist (he left the series for his own show). The show often blurred the lines between reality and fiction by dealing with topical issues and by including real-life journalists as guest stars playing themselves.
