Clarification: ZRG and ELFA MFLI-25 Employment Charts
“Just a quick note to clarify the difference between the results of our index and the ELFA employment index. Our index looks at ‘job opportunities’ for future hiring while the ELFA looks at employee headcount. Our index is future looking and jobs today will result in headcount in 3-6 months while the ELFA is static and is looking at total employees/headcount in the rear view mirror.
“Additionally, many member firms in the MLFI 25 might be reducing headcount in some areas but hiring now in others. For example, CIT announced this week that 123 people will be losing jobs in the ‘Express loan SBA Division’ while at the same time, CIT is hiring in the leasing division. In past years, both headcount and new hiring was down. Now, while headcount is still lagging, companies are once again looking to fill roles which will likely result in increased total headcount in 6-12 months.”
(Mr. Hartmann's comments were added to the story online.
His partner Ken Vancini announced the 4th quarter to the public, stating:
A few important things for you to consider in your leadership role:
· Hiring is returning and it is not just a few giants – the hiring last quarter was broad based
· Retaining your top talent will once again become more important as more opportunities emerge this year for choices and movement
· Finding new talent will begin to become more difficult. While word of mouth, internal recruiting and advertising might have worked in 2009 and 2010, we are now entering a more competitive talent market that will feel more like it used to in the mid 2000’s. If you want “A” talent, it might take more effort than in the past.
If your 2011 plans call for hiring key talent, we would like to speak more with you about how our approach can support you. Good luck this year and feel free to reach out to me for any Human Capital needs you might have.

Six Years to Name Final Royal Links Scam Principal
Over six years later the final founding principal of Royal Links USA Inc., is held accountable. This is a good example that the long arm of the law works, although some times it appears to take longer than other times. While a speedy trial is guaranteed, the legal authorities appear to want to win in court, meaning when they arrive before a judge they want to win their case.
Readers and those directly involved with Equipment Acquisitions Resources, HL Leasing, and Allied Health Care Services, among others, often email when is something going to happen?
They are quite impatient. They are angry as it appears to them nothing is happening to bring justice.
It takes time. Royal Links is a good example.
October, 2004 Royal Links told golf courses they would no longer pay the $300 per month sponsorship money for the 5,000 carts on lease.
When the lease payments stopped to the leasing companies, they wrote notices payments had to continue. Then reaching 90 days, began the legal procedures. Among the holders of 5,000
Royal Links Golf Carts were:
The National Golf Course Owners Association pooled thier members into one representation, resulting in several leasing companies agreeing to settlements.
April 1, 2005, a class action complaint was filed by attorney Andrew Gifford of Lord, Bissell & Brook LLP (against Royal Links USA, Inc. ("Royal Links") in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio against the leasing companies and Royal Links.
August 19, 2005, Royal Links, USA, filed bankruptcy.
In the meantime, most of the lessees lost in court (see story that follows.)
It was not until almost five years later that Daniel W. Sandwisch and Ms. Robin Flaum of Royal Links USA were charged March 13, 2010 with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud by Steven M. Dettelback, United States Attorney, Northern District of Ohio, for setting out from January 1, 2002 to December,2004 (exact date not being known): "The object of the conspiracy was to obtain money from golf courses and leasing companies through materially false promises and misrepresentations and omissions of material fact for financial gain and in order to keep the scheme going and to conceal the true source of so-called "rebate" money and the financial condition of RLUSA."
May 13, 2010, Mr. Cargnino and Mrs. Flaum plead guilty. Sentencing was postponed, and then the court on January 6, 2011 to acknowledge the related case where information from the first case may be considered pertinent.
The January 6, 2011 case against Philip A. Cargnino filed by US Attorneys Christian H. Stickan and Robert J. Patton was recently referred to Magistrate Judge James R. Knepp after being indicted by the Grand Jury Northern District of Ohio. It was declared part of the conspiracy by Daniel W. Sandwisch and Ms. Robin Flaum of Royal Links USA.

Royal Links “Hell or High Water” Clause Up-held
(Ironically even though NorVergence telephone leases seemed to debunk "hell and high water contracts," lessors won in court against golf course operators who leased a portable golf course unit that dispensed beverages primarily where Royal Links was to provide national sponsors on the carts that would reimburse the lease costs of the units. Leasing News asked for an opinion from our legal columnist and well-experienced leasing attorney Michael Witt, as he had written in his column about C&J Leasing and their experience. Editor).
In all of the Royal Links cases I'm familiar with, the lessees have lost their cases on the basis of the “Hell or High Water” clause in the lease. The courts tend to say that even if Royal Links engaged in fraud, C&J was an independent company, did not take part in the fraud, and therefore must prevail by virtue of the “Hell or High Water” clause.
Recently in Iowa, however, the state Supreme Court gave Royal Links lessees some hope. In C&J Vantage Leasing Co. v. Outlook Farm Golf Club (No. 07-1808, Opinion filed July 2, 2010), the state Supreme Court reversed the lower court's ruling in favor of C & J's assignee (Frontier Leasing). The lower court had held, simply, that the “Hell or High Water” clause was dispositive. The Supreme Court disagreed, saying that if the lessee can prove that Royal Links fraudulently induced the lessee to enter into the contract and if the lessee can prove that Royal Links was acting as C & J's agent (which is a factual question for the jury), then the lease should not be enforced. The Supreme Court sent the case back to the trial court for litigation on those issues.
A few of the more significant facts upon which the Supreme Court said that a jury might find an agency relationship were these:
1. C&J allowed Royal Links to place RL's logo at the top of the C&J lease form.
The obvious lesson for lessors is that they should be very careful before allowing the vendor to put its logo on the lease documents, and they should conduct a comprehensive telephone audit with the lessee before funding the deal. Get the lessee to acknowledge that the vendor is not the lessor's agent and that there are no "side deals" not expressed in writing in the lease document.
Lessors cannot go to sleep and rest on an agency disclaimer clause in the lease (i.e., a clause stating the "lessee acknowledges that the vendor is not the lessor's agent").
In the Outlook Farm case, the lease contained a typical agency disclaimer clause, yet the Supreme Court specifically said that it would not be dispositive if there are independent facts indicating an agency relationship.
Hope this gives you some ideas.

Sales makes it Happen---by Steve Chriest
Solid Reasons for Growing the Sales Organization In 2011
Summary: Perhaps the biggest reason for digging in and planning for expansion of the sales team now is the fact that your peers are making plans to expand their businesses.
It has taken more time than we might have wished, but many CFOs now are loosening the purse strings and preparing for solid growth in 2011. Recent credible surveys find that many CFOs have finally shaken off the fatigue of the recession.
While no one is predicting a recovery that would match the speed of a bullet-train, CFOs are sitting on hoards of cash, and many said that they plan to put their cash to work to fuel growth and shareholder returns, not to mention hefty bonuses for exceptional performance.
Besides a new found cautious optimism among CFOs, the recovery of Capital markets portends a strong growth of initial public offerings and the use of dirt cheap debt to finance R&D and investments in business operations and equipment. In addition, private sources for debt and equity have returned, and this should help small businesses begin to hire and grow again.
Even the most optimistic among the CFOs surveyed, however, expressed feelings of uncertainty about health-care reform and it's costs, consumer demand, the federal debt and the political outlook. So, even optimistic CFOs will continue to scrutinize every dollar that goes out the door, demanding value and a tangible ROI.
Growing the sales organization to meet the opportunities for increased business in 2011 appears to be a business imperative. Success, in my opinion, will require not so much a reliance on wisdom of the past as it will on a new, comprehensive and strategic approach to improving sales performance and scaling the sales organization to meet the needs of customers who themselves are in the midst of expanding business operations.
If ever there was a time to upgrade the skills of the sales team and arm them with effective tools for engaging capable and increasingly well-financed competitors from all corners of the globe, this appears to be the time. I believe it will be time well spent, unless some unforeseen major disruption ruins the prognosis for growth in 2011.

ELFA Continues Lack of Notice Drive: Evergreen Clauses
“GreatAmerica was lumped into your list of leasing companies last week who fail to notify their customers at lease end. I always think of evergreen as being a 12 month lock, and we don’t do that with GreatAmerica contracts. We also notify all lessees prior to end of term regarding the expiration of their initial term. From there we simply use a month-to-month approach. I’ve attached out Truth in Leasing Statement in the event you haven’t seen this document.
“Can you tell me who provided this information to you? I’d like to get this right on all levels.”
Matthew L. Doty
((I believe you are referring to the story above where it said, "(These companies who report to the ELFA MFI-25 participants (there are 31, but that is what they started with and make comparisons) appear to support not notifying leases about a purchase option, meaning if not paid, they continue the payments...
(Please note the word “appear.”
((Perhaps you should be addressing your email to the ELFA and stating Great America is in favor of notifying lessees about the end of the initial term of the lease and options available, specifically when they are a nominal purchase option of a $1 or 10%.

CLP January 2011 Spotlights Lee Herdon/Jim Merrilees
An Interview with Lee Herndon, CLP
Tell us a little bit about your background in equipment leasing and financing:
After spending ten years in the consumer finance business, which took a real beating in the early 80s when the prime lending rate eclipsed 20%, I responded to a help wanted ad for a credit/collection VP for a new small independent leasing company that was focusing on financing a new technology; cell phones. Trivia: the average price of a new car phone in 1984 was $3500.
LeaseTel quickly depleted its parent's cash resources and we were able to secure an acquisition by Xerox leasing. Xerox soon centralized credit and collection and I moved to sales manager of the Midwest region
After a couple years, Xerox reorganized, closed the division I was with, and I moved back closer to home near Chicago and took a position as Collection manager for Capitol Leasing. Capitol eventually sold their portfolio to Datronic Rental, and I moved with the portfolio to become the VP of Collection for Datronic. I rejoined the Capitol group, then at Bankers Leasing, a couple years later as VP of Collection. I stayed with Bankers for ten years as it grew and evolved and became a division of EAB Leasing, and then Citi Financial.
Citi Financial absorbed the $500 million portfolio and offered me a position in Texas. I chose to stay near family and friends which led me to IFC Credit as VP of Collection. Over the next couple years, the ex-Bankers Leasing group got Baytree Leasing established, and I rejoined the group again as VP Lease Administration /Collection/IT at Baytree Leasing where I am today.
What are some of the challenges you encounter and what do you enjoy most about your work?
The one constant in the leasing industry is change. I've had the opportunity to work for multi-nationals and independents, and each offers unique benefits and challenges. I like working for the smaller more entrepreneurial companies, and I like being a working manager.
In my current position I have both ends of the business, documenting and funding new transactions and Collection. It guarantees that my desk is never empty and I'm never looking for something to do. I also have the benefit of a partner who has over twenty-five years in leasing. My wife and I talk shop all the time and we really understand the challenges of each others jobs.
If you could transport yourself anywhere instantly, where would you go and why?
That's easy for me. I would go to Fred Howard Beach in Tarpon Springs, Illinois, with my wife, where we were married, and we would walk barefoot in the sand and watch the sun set, listening to the waves gently breaking on the shore.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
My hobbies are varied, In February or March each year; you'll find me on a Cruise ship. I like to build things, and I like to take the boat out on the river early in the morning while the water is still, and I love taking long rides with my wife on our Goldwing on winding county roads, and if it's raining I'll just find a pool table and there goes the rest of any day.

An Interview with Jim Merrilees, CLI
How did you get your start in the equipment leasing and finance industry?
I graduated from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) in 1971 with a finance degree. Shortly thereafter I went to work for Fifth Third Bank as a Credit Analyst. After one year I took a job with IDS Leasing and proceeded to start a career in the equipment leasing industry that lasted 34 years. Pitney Bowes Credit Corporation, where I spent about half this time, moved me to southern California in 1981. During my time there I received an MBA from Pepperdine ('85).
After 6 years, in 1987, I moved to Oregon when Pitney Bowes acquired Colonial Pacific Leasing Corporation. I remained at Colonial until 1994 and since then have had a couple more jobs, as many of my industry friends will tell you.
I became President of Quiktrak in 2007 and began servicing the industry I had spent so many years in. In September I began working for RTR Services, in Salem Oregon, where I hope to help the company broaden the services that it has been offering for 20 years.
The past 24 years, living in Oregon, seems to have flown by. During that time it has been a privilege to serve on the boards of Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, Eastern Association of Equipment Lessors, Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, National Equipment Finance Association which original was the Western Association of Lessors who become the United Association of Equipment Leasing and the Certified Lease Professional Foundation.
I have made many business contacts and friends during that time. Thanks to all of you who have supported me in my career and I feel fortunate to have been associated with this industry and its people.
In the movie about your life, who would you cast to play you?
If I had to, I would select Jimmy Stewart to play my role in a movie and it would definitely be a comedy. I try not to take myself too seriously.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
When not at work my favorite thing lately has been riding motorcycles. I currently have 5, all but one being Harley products. The Northwest has great rides and you never seem to run out of wonderful scenery. Since my first bike back in college the freedom to ride never gets old.

#### Press Release #############################
First one in L.A. for the new year
Sports Treasures Owner Pleads Guilty to Tax Fraud
Santa Ana – Yesterday, a Villa Park man pleaded guilty before United States District Court Judge Josephine Tucker to filing a false income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
William A. Alsborg, owner of the sports memorabilia retail chain headquartered in Orange, California, failed to report gross receipts from his business for years 2003 through 2005.
According to the filed plea agreement, during 2003 through 2005, defendant Alsborg owned and operated Sports Treasures and sold memorabilia in his six retail stores located throughout Southern California, including in Orange County, and online through eBay.
For each of the years 2003 through 2005, Alsborg filed with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) an IRS Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, with a Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business, for Sports Treasures attached to his Form 1040.
On each of Alsborg’s tax returns from 2003 through 2005, he failed to report all of his business receipts and his business income on his Schedule C and his Form 1040. Specifically, he failed to report cash receipts and other business receipts that were often deposited into bank accounts other than in the Sports Treasures bank accounts. Alsborg knew he under-reported approximately $1,381,389, $1,474,877, and $147,543 in gross receipts for Sports Treasures on his Schedule C for the tax years 2003, 2004, and 2005, respectively (totaling approximately $3,003,809 in unreported gross receipts from 2003 through 2005). Although defendant had additional costs of goods sold and expenses that offset some of the unreported gross receipts, the total additional tax due based on the unreported gross receipts is $91,997 for the tax years 2003-2005.
Alsborg is scheduled to be sentenced on April 4, 2011 before Judge Tucker.
The charges specified in the indictment carry the following statutory maximum penalties: Filing False Income Tax Return – 3 years imprisonment and a fine of $100,000.00.
The investigation and prosecution of Alborg is being conducted by IRS - Criminal Investigation in conjunction with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California.
### Press Release ############################
Defendant in $20 Million Illegal Stock for Compensation
Los Angeles - This morning, the lead defendant in an illegal stock-for-compensation fraud scheme investigation was sentenced to spend 36 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to subscribing to a false federal individual income tax return for 2005, conspiracy, and securities charges.
Stephen Floyd Owens, formerly of Lafayette, Louisiana, was also ordered by United States District Judge Terry J. Hatter to spend three years on supervised release after completing his prison sentence and to truthfully and timely file and pay all federal income tax returns for the years of the investigation.
According to his plea agreement in the tax case filed in April 2010, Owens admitted that he failed to report income of $1,600,000 that he had received from the sale of stock in numerous publicly traded companies. Owens admitted that he deliberately understated his income on his 2005 tax return, resulting in a tax loss of approximately $448,000.
In June 2009, Owens pleaded guilty to conspiracy and securities charges related to the fraudulent issuance of American Fire Retardant Corporation stock as compensation to William Manfei Woo, of Rosemead, California and to Tarun Mendiratta, of Weston, Connecticut. American Fire formerly did business in Santee, California.
According to court records, as a part of the scheme, Woo received American Fire stock from Owens, the company's president and chief operating officer. During 2003 and 2004, Owens caused American Fire to issue stock to Woo directly and indirectly through two nominees. The stock issued to Woo was issued as free-trading, unrestricted stock of the type issued to employees, consultants, and advisors who provide bona fide services to the company
Between July 2003 and February 2004, Mendiratta received approximately 1.18 billion shares of American Fire, stock that was publicly traded on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board. Mendiratta received the stock from co-conspirator Owens. The stock Mendiratta received from Owens had a market of value of approximately $3.3 million. As a part of the scheme, Mendiratta requested that Owens fraudulently issue American Fire stock to two of his aunts in an effort to conceal his ownership of the stock from federal authorities.
When he was issued the stock, Woo and Owens both knew that neither Woo nor either of his nominees performed bona fide services that justified the amount of stock issued to them. Similarly, Mendiratta and Owens knew that neither Mendiratta nor his aunts performed any bona fide services for American Fire that were worth the amount of stock issued to them.
Owens admitted that the total value of American Fire stock purportedly registered on SEC Form S-8 and issued to Woo, Mendiratta, and other non-bona fide consultants of American Fire between 2003 and 2004 exceeded $20,000,000.
At the conclusion of today's sentencing hearing Judge Hatter ordered Owens to begin serving his sentence on April 11, 2011.
Mendiratta was sentenced on April 19, 2010 on conspiracy and tax evasion charges. At sentencing, Judge Hatter specified that Mendiratta’s custodial term consist of one year and one day in federal prison followed by six months at a community corrections center and six months of home detention. Additionally, Mendiratta was ordered to pay a fine of $150,000 and spend three years on supervised release after serving his sentence.
Woo was sentenced by Judge Hatter last year to 6 months in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons, followed by 1 year of supervised release, which included 6 months in a halfway house and 6 months of home detention after Woo pleaded guilty of subscribing to a false tax return and to conspiracy charges. Additionally, Woo was ordered to pay restitution to IRS in the amount of $725,956.
The investigation and prosecution of Owens, Woo and Mendiratta was conducted by IRS - Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Los Angeles in conjunction with the United States Attorney's Office for the Central District of California.
