NOTE 30 – Non-Exchange Financial Guarantees
Sample (Illustrative, may not tie to exhibits)

Sample agency and Sample city are separate financial reporting entities in the state. Both governments have the same fiscal year-end of Aug. 31. On Sept. 1, 20X0, Sample city took a four-year, $4 million loan with a local bank and planned to use the funds for Sample city’s economic development purposes. As part of the Sample agency’s mission to assist a local government, on Oct. 1, 20X0 Sample agency extended a non-exchange financial guarantee on the loan issued by the Sample city. The debt service payments are four annual installments at the end of the fiscal year, each for $1 million and interest payment of 3.5 percent on the outstanding principal.

In fiscal 20X2, Sample city experienced financial difficulty because of a significant investment loss and the loss of a major revenue source. As a result, Sample city began to pay operating costs out of the reserve fund. On August 1, 20X2, Sample agency determined that (based on qualitative factors) it is more likely than not that the Sample agency will be required to pay all the remaining principal and interest on the loan it guaranteed. The present value of the expected future cash outflows on the guaranteed loan before the debt service payments at Aug. 31, 20X2 was $3,105,000. On Aug. 31, 20X2, Sample agency paid $1 million principal and $105,000 interest on the guaranteed loan. On Aug. 31, 20X3, Sample agency paid $1 million principal and $70,000 interest on the guaranteed loan for the city.
