For Real estate loans financing eligible land and building costs, borrowers will have the following two interest rate options:
1. Fixed interest rate for the full term of the loan (up to a 15-year period). This option is calculated using the ten-year treasury yield +150 basis points. Based on the current ten-year treasury yield, the fixed rate option is 3.50% for the life of the loan.
2. Fixed interest rate for a seven-year period set at the ten-year treasury rate +50 basis points. After seven years, the rate will reset to the ten-year treasury rate +50 basis points. Please note, the reset rate is limited to a 200 basis point increase/decrease and has a floor of 2.25%. The reset rate is then fixed for the duration of the loan.

BCEDC has been participating in a regional effort to help bring back business lost off-shore. Just as it is hard to quantify the extent of damage Bucks County companies have experienced, it is even harder to raise business leader awareness to a level they feel capable of doing something about it. The most common response to the question, “Do you want help re-shoring lost business?” was, “It’s almost impossible to get work back from Asia once it goes off shore. Even if I had a plan, I don’t have the money to finance the necessary changes.”
What would you call a user interface that was easy to read, usually one screen, displays the company’s latest key performance indicators graphically, and was readily available to decision makers?
No, the answer is not “impossible”. In one form or another, business dashboards have been in use since the 1980’s, initially as Executive Information Systems. Their somewhat slow pro-gression into the broader business arena was due primarily to limited distribution capabilities. As a result of more recent improvements in data refreshing and handling, dashboards have become an increasingly popular means of monitoring high-level business objectives at a glance.
