NetSol Technologies, Calabasas, California, a worldwide finance and leasing software company, reports $1.1 million net loss for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2011, compared to a $1.5 million profit fourth quarter of 2010.Total revenue was $6.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with $10.7 million for the same period last year.

Leasing 102
by Mr. Terry Winders, CLP

Commercial Equipment Leasing

I am a teacher of what is a commercial equipment lease. What constantly amazes me is how little most people in our industry know about our product and the rules and regulations that govern it. Once a long time ago I created what I called a lease format in which I listed all of types of leases and then created columns for each of the rules, income tax, accounting, legal, etc., to show the affect on each product. I thought this would be a good guide for new people. Instead all I got from many people already in the leasing business was confusion because they assumed there was only one approach for every lease.

Now that the accounting rules are going to change, many of the reasons to lease are going to g back to cash flow, income tax impact, irregular payments to match revenue and other reasons that existed prior to the heavy influence on operating leases. Education is the key to survival---not only for your sales staff but the back office personnel as well.

What I find is many people are taught the business from someone they admire or are employed by and take what they say as gospel and are hard to convince otherwise. Then there are those who come from banks and other lenders that carry there assumptions that leasing is just a fancy loan and do not see the differences.

Leasing is a complex business and requires a complete understanding of the responsibilities of asset ownership. Even a bargain option lease places ownership issues on the lessor until title is passed at lease termination. Do you know these issues and how to deal with them? Both legal and income tax rules are subject to change based on court cases that have helped settle some pressing questions that are not spelled out in the rules themselves. How much do you know about what are acceptable today verses yesterday?

I was teaching a few years ago at a break out session at an annual leasing conference when a gentleman came up to me and said he did not agree with my presentation on income tax requirements because he had done it differently for over 10 years with no repercussions. I told him that just because he had not been audited did not make it correct ----and sure enough, he was audited the next year.

He called me to tell me he had a very large tax bill with penalties and interest and should have followed my advice. He wanted to know when I was going to have my next seminar.

If you are going to be in Southern California December 12th, you might want to attend my next seminar.

Career Crossroad---“Need Tips for Telephone Interview”

I have a phone interview scheduled---Can you give me any tips?

Phone interviews, in reality, are sometimes more difficult than face-to-face interviews as it is difficult to “read” the interviewer’s reactions to your questions and answers.

The best way to prepare for the phone interview is to do your homework:

(1) Research the company
(2) Find out who will be in on the call and research, if you can, the background of the interviewer (s) to see if you have any commonalities e.g. previous employers
(3) make sure you understand the qualifications required for the role and be able to relate your background to each requirement
(4) Develop some questions regarding the company as whole and other job-specific questions – NEVER discuss salary unless the interviewer brings up the topic
(5) make sure you have your resume and job description in front of you during the interview
(6) After completion of the interview, ask about next steps (e.g. a face-to-face interview).

Most importantly, relax and make the phone interview a two-way conversation so your personality can shine through.

Chris Walker Marathon Fund Raising Goal Raised

Hugh Swandel, the Alta Group, running in the 2011 Bank of American Chicago Marathon, Sunday, October 9, 2011, has raised the Fund Raising Goal to help Chris Walker, GreatAmerica Leasing, President, Certified Financial Professional Foundation, also on the Board of Directors of the National Equipment Financing Association.

"I was greatly saddened to learn my dear friend has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is a true gentleman and his handling his battle with poise, class and dignity. I have been at a loss at how I can help a friend and colleague who lives far away but is constantly in my thoughts.

"My decision to run the Chicago Marathon was made prior to hearing this sad news but fate intervened when I went to register for the Marathon. The event was sold out but there was an opportunity to participate by raising funds for a worthy charity. I believe fate was intervening to provide me with a way to honor my friend and help in some small way to battle a disease that has been with us far too long."

### Press Release ############################

September Money Anxiety Index at 30-Year High – 99.8

The last time the Money Anxiety Index rose to such level was during the recession of the early 1980s.

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. September preliminary Money Anxiety Index ( rose to 99.8 – an increase of 1.3 index points from last month, and 5.7 over the same month last year. The index has been on the rise since October 2006, when it stood at 52.9 – nearly half the current level. The gradual increase in the Money Anxiety Index in the past five years is another indication that, de facto, the Great Recession is not over yet even though it was declared over in July of 2009.

The increase in the Money Anxiety Index is reflected in the August retail sales released this week by the U.S. Department of Commerce. August retail and food service sales were $389.5 billion, practically unchanged from the previous month. The August figure is adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes, which means that when adjusted for inflation, August figure reflects a slight decline compared to the previous month.

“Retailers and investors should take note of this trend,” said Dan Geller, Ph.D. Trend Forecaster at Money Anxiety Index, “the link between the level of financial anxiety and retail sales is very strong and significant, which means that when the Money Anxiety rises, consumers are less likely to spend money in retail stores and food establishments.”

About Money Anxiety Index
The Money Anxiety Index (MAI) measures various economic indicators and factors associated with consumers’ level of financial worry and stress. MAI, which measured the level of financial anxiety for the past 50 years, fluctuated from a high of 136.0 during the early 1980s recession, and a low of 40.3 in the mid 1960s (January 1975 = 100). The Money Anxiety Index was developed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) with a large sample size of monthly economic indicators ranging from 1959 to 2010.

The Money Anxiety Index (MAI) differs from other indices of consumer confidence mainly because its measurement is objective rather than subjective. MAI measures how economic indicators are impacting consumers’ behavior (objective) rather than how consumers say they feel about the economy (subjective), which is the methodology used by survey-based consumer confidence indices.

Funding Symposium A Big Success

Raleigh, NC (September 18, 2011) – The 2011 Funding Symposium of the National Equipment Finance Association, (NEFA), drew over 150 brokers, lessors, funding sources and other service providers to Minneapolis, MN, from Thursday, Sept 15th through Saturday, Sept 17th, making it one of the best conferences so far in the group’s brief history.

Gerry Egan, Executive Director of NEFA, said, “The number of new members and first time attendees, along with the new funding source and service provider exhibitors, are all clear signs of both the resilience, and determination to move forward, of the members of this industry. There is so much funding available for America’s small business owners,” said Egan. “The challenge for our members today is to communicate that fact to America’s business owners in spite of all the negative publicity to the contrary.”

The Funding Symposium also serves as the annual business meeting for NEFA and the association’s directors and officers for 2012 were elected. The newly elected Executive Committee includes Hugh Swandel, of The Alta Group, as President; John Rosenlund, CLP, of Portfolio Financial Servicing Co., as Vice President; John Donohue, of Direct Capital Corporation, as Treasurer; Frank Peretore, Esq., of Peretore & Peretore, P.C., as Secretary; and Chris Enbom, CLP, of Allegiant Partners, Inc., as Immediate Past-President.

Newly elected directors are Kyle Gilliam, CLP, of Arvest Equipment Finance; Brad Harmon, CLP, of First Star Capital; Jesse Johnson, of LeaseTeam, Inc.; Jim Merrilees, CLP, of RTR Inspection Services; and Bruce Smith, CLP, of Diversified Capital Credit and Health Care Equipment Funding.

They join re-elected Directors Tara Aasand, of Great American Insurance Group; William Ford, Jr., of Ford Financial Services, Inc.; Terey Jennings, CLP, of Financial Pacific, LLC; Tim Mathison, of P&L Capital Corp.; David Normandin, CLP, of Normandin Consulting; and Gary Souverein, of Pawnee Leasing Corporation.

Chris Walker is NEFA Member of the Year

A special NEFA Member of the Year award was presented to Chris Walker, CLP, of GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation. NEFA President, Chris Enbom, said “We chose Chris Walker for this honor not just because of his many years of dedicated service to the industry, our association, and virtually everyone who ever met him, but also because the quiet dignity and incredible courage with which Chris has faced a life threatening illness serves as a shining example and inspiration to all of us. We were delighted to have Chris’ wife, Jean, with us at the Funding Symposium to see Chris accept this award.”

Other awards recognizing their contribution as volunteers to the association were given to outgoing board members and executive committee officers. Recipients included Nancy Geary, CPA, CLP, of ECS Financial Services, who served as this year’s Treasurer; Randy Haug, of LeaseTeam Inc., as Immediate Past-President; Scott Wheeler, CLP, of Wheeler Business Consulting, LLC, as Director; Chris Walker, CLP, of GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation, as Director; Frank Peretore, Esq., of Peretore & Peretore, P.C., as Director; and Tara Aasand, of Great American Insurance Group, as 2011 Funding Symposium Conference Chairperson

Tara Aasand said “It was a lot of fun working on putting this conference together and especially gratifying to see so many people respond and come to enjoy the wonderful educational programs, the networking and all the funding and service offerings. I also enjoyed being part of the large group who went to the Minnesota Twins baseball game on Friday night.”

This Day in American History


    1676- Bacon's Rebellion, Jamestown, Virginia. Perhaps the first revolt against the British, who formed an alliance with the Indians. Lead by Nathaniel Bacon, a colonist, he was successful, but shortly after winning the town, he caught a disease and died (common in the day, unfortunately).The rebellion then collapsed and his followers were hunted down, some executed and then property confiscated. Virginia Governor Sir William Berkeley was replaced the next year and peace was restored, so says history. (Full story at the end for those interested).
    1737 - Charles Carroll (d.1832), American patriot and legislator, was born. He was the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration and his signature read Charles Carroll of Carrollton. He lived in Maryland where, as a Roman Catholic he was forbidden from voting and holding public office. However, the wealthy Carrolls moved in the highest social circle and entertained George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette at their estate.
    1777-Battle of Saratoga, New York. After a series of defeats, American General Horatio Gates has a major victory.
    1849-First commercial laundry on the West Coast established in Oakland, California. The actual world's first commercial laundry was founded by a Mrs. Steel in New York in the early 1800s, and followed by others: The Troy (New York) Laundry -first of many Troy laundries nationwide, The Cambridge (Massachusetts) Laundry in 1840, the Boston and Roxbury Laundry in 1847, and the Contra Costa Laundry (Oakland, California) in 1849, eventually one of the largest in the west.
    1863- Battle of Chickamauga, Tenn. (near Chattanooga)-Second day. (Considered the two bloodiest days of the Civil War)
    1864- Third Battle of Winchester, Virginia: Union General Phillip Sheridan defeated Confederate General Jubal Early's forces at Winchester, Virginia, ending Early's raids on the North. Early's troops were again soundly beaten on September 22 at Fisher's Hill. After defeating Early, Sheridan turned his attention to destroy the food resources of the Shenandoah Valley. The strategy of the North was to cut off supplies from Europe, purchased by the Confederates, and to burn and destroy all food and manufacturing facilities thus cutting off all ammunition, clothing, food and other supplies that supported the Confederate troops. The movie "Gone with the Wind" centers on Sheridan's march through the south. A trivia fact: General George S. Patton's grandfather, who was his namesake, was killed fighting for the Confederacy in this battle.
    1865-Atlanta University Founded. On July 1, 1988, two private historically black institutions- Atlanta University and Clark College- consolidated to form Clark Atlanta University (CAU).

***Bacon's Rebellion: In the Virginia colony every adult male could vote. When Charles II was restored to the English throne, he sought to exploit the colony to the fullest. Virginia Governor Sir William Berkeley, supporting the king, adopted new laws to facilitate these efforts including measures allowing only property holders to vote, raising taxes to build up the town of Jamestown and raising the cost of shipping while lowering the price for tobacco. The resulting discontent exploded when the frontier of the colony was attacked by Indians and the governor refused to defend the settlers. Nathaniel Bacon, a colonist on the governor's council, was made leader by the frontier farmers, and his troops successfully defeated the Indians. Denounced by Berkeley as rebels, Bacon and his men occupied Jamestown, forcing the governor to call an election, the first in 15 years. The Berkeley laws were repealed and election and tax reforms were instituted. While Bacon and his troops were gone on a raiding party against the Indians, Berkeley again denounced them. They returned and attacked Berkeley's forces, defeating them and burning Jamestown on Sept 19, 1676. Berkeley again fled and Bacon became ruler of Virginia. When he died suddenly a short time later, the rebellion collapsed. Berkeley returned to power and Bacon's followers were hunted down, some executed and their property confiscated. Berkeley was replaced the next year and peace was restored.
