Stradley Ronon partner Valentino F. DiGiorgio III presented, “The Anatomy of a Tax Exempt Financing,” at the 2009 Delaware County Business Funding Forum. The event – sponsored by the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, Delaware County Council and Delaware County Commerce Center – provided business owners and nonprofit and financial institution executives with information on government funding programs and available business assistance. DiGiorgio discussed how to structure tax-exempt bond and note issuances in order to fund capital projects.
