Board Members Fort Pierce Utilities Authority

The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) of Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013, is submitted herewith pursuant to the City of Fort Pierce Charter, Article XII, Section 176 (12) and the bond covenants of FPUA’s outstanding revenue bonds. Responsibility for the accuracy of the data and the completeness and fairness of the presentation, including all disclosures, rests with the management of FPUA. This CAFR was prepared by FPUA’s Department of Finance staff. We believe the data, as presented, is accurate in all material respects, that it is presented in a manner designed to fairly set forth the financial position and results of operations of FPUA, and that all disclosures necessary to enable the readers to gain the maximum understanding of FPUA’s financial activity have been included.

FPUA’s financial statements have been audited by DiBartolomeo, McBee, Hartley & Barnes, a firm of licensed certified public accountants, in accordance with Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards. The goal of the independent audit was to provide reasonable assurance that the financial statements of FPUA for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013, are free of material misstatement. The independent audit involved examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements; assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management; and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. The independent auditor concluded, based upon the audit, that there was a reasonable basis for rendering an unqualified opinion that FPUA’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013, are fairly presented in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The independent auditor’s report is presented as the first component of the financial section of this report.

GAAP requires that management provide a narrative introduction, overview, and analysis to accompany the basic financial statements in the form of Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A). This letter of transmittal is designed to complement the MD&A and should be read in conjunction with it. FPUA’s MD&A can be found immediately following the independent auditor’s report.

THE REPORTING UNIT

FPUA was established in accordance with provisions of the City Charter, confirmed by an election held on May 30, 1972. The FPUA Board consists of five members, one of whom is the Mayor-Commissioner of the City, who serves on the Board as long as he or she holds such office. The other four members are appointed by the City Commission for four-year overlapping terms, limited to two consecutive terms of office.

The City Charter, Article XII, Section 169, states that FPUA shall be responsible for the development, production, purchase, distribution, and collection of all electricity, water, wastewater, natural gas, and such other utility services as may be designated by resolution by the City Commission. FPUA is a component unit of the City of Fort Pierce, Florida and this report includes all systems of FPUA. This report does not include the financial activities of the City of Fort Pierce. Reference should be made to the City’s report published separately. SYSTEM PROFILE

The Electric, Water, Wastewater, and Gas Utility Systems, Manatee Observation and Education Center (MOEC), and FPUAnet Communications are managed and operated for the City by FPUA. FPUA also operates the Treasure Coast Energy Center (TCEC) for the Florida Municipal Power Agency (FMPA) on a contract basis, utilizing FPUA employees.

The Electric System serves the City of Fort Pierce and the immediately surrounding area, encompassing approximately 35 square miles, with an average of 27,630 services billed during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. FPUA currently has 23 miles of transmission lines and eight substations (six distribution and two transmission) operating at 69kV and 138kV. FPUA jointly owns with the City of Vero Beach a 138kV transmission line and substation directly interconnecting with both Florida Power & Light (FPL) and Vero Beach. FPUA’s transmission substations are interconnected with FPL. FPUA and FPL have a territorial agreement approved by the Florida Public Service Commission.

On December 16, 1997, FPUA agreed to participate in the FMPA All-Requirements Power Supply Project (ARP). In doing so, FPUA became one of 14 municipally owned utilities in ARP. The principal benefits of ARP are:

1. Lower operating costs through utilization of the most efficient generation available. 2. Future generation will be planned for the collective systems, as needed, by FMPA. 3. Economies of scale in operating, planning, and financing. 4. Lower risk with more units and more cities working together.

As of January 1, 1998, FPUA assigned its resources to ARP and agreed to purchase its total power requirements from ARP. FPUA’s resources, which have been assigned, include the contracts with FMPA related to Stanton Unit No. 1 (Stanton and Tri-City Projects) and Stanton Unit No. 2. The contracts related to the St. Lucie Nuclear Project have not been assigned.

The Water System serves the City of Fort Pierce and the immediately surrounding area, encompassing approximately 32 square miles, with an average of 19,248 services billed during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. Water supply is obtained from 36 surficial aquifer wells (shallow) and 11 Floridan aquifer wells (deep). FPUA currently has a Water Use Permit from the South Florida Water Management District to withdraw a daily maximum not to exceed 21.13 million gallons of ground water. Treatment of the raw ground water is presently accomplished through a 20 million gallons per day (MGD) conventional Lime Softening Water Treatment Plant and a 10.3 MGD Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant. FPUA owns and operates a 13.3 MGD air stripping system which services the lime-softening portion of FPUA's Water Treatment Facility. FPUA meets all federal and state drinking water standards. FPUA has 9 million gallons of storage capacity. The water distribution system is composed of 384 miles of water mains, remote pumping facilities, ground storage tanks, hydrants, and valves. The Wastewater System serves the City of Fort Pierce and the immediately surrounding area, encompassing approximately 30 square miles, with an average of 14,635 services billed during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. The wastewater collection system consists of 116 lift stations, 171 miles of gravity sewer lines ranging from 4 to 48 inches in diameter, and approximately 97 miles of force mains ranging in size from 1.5 to 24 inches in diameter. The Island Water Reclamation Facility (IWRF) currently has a permitted capacity of 10 MGD for Annual Average Daily Flow and 11.5 MGD for 3-Month Annual Average Daily Flow. On December 11, 2012, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection issued the operating permit, which is anticipated to be adequate through December 10, 2017. FPUA has one domestic deep injection well at the IWRF plant site. A pumping station injects treated effluent into the 3,300-foot deep injection well for disposal. The IWRF IW-1 well is a twenty-four inch domestic well which is permitted through February 9, 2017. There are two deep injection wells located on the site of the future Mainland Water Reclamation Facility (MWRF), in the southwest corner of the service area. IW-1 is an 18-inch industrial deep injection well and IW-2 is a 24-inch domestic deep injection well. IW-1 accommodates the TCEC’s industrial wastewater stream, and is permitted through April 15, 2015. The IW-2 well is currently not in operation and therefore is not permitted. Both wells can be utilized for disposal of MWRF effluent when that facility is constructed. The Gas System serves the City of Fort Pierce and the immediately surrounding area, encompassing approximately 27 square miles, with an average of 4,179 services billed during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. The Gas System purchases firm gas for resale through Florida Gas Utility (FGU). FGU has a contract with Florida Gas Transmission for the transportation of gas to FPUA’s system. Gas purchases are supplied by FGU under an all requirements agreement. The Gas Operations Department is responsible for the installation and maintenance of all gas mains and service lines. The department also employs a staff of qualified gas service technicians to maintain and repair customers’ natural gas appliances.

FPUAnet Communications provides high quality, state-of-the-art fiber optic communication services, including Dedicated Fiber Internet Access and Optical Fiber Links, such as Dark Fiber and Bandwidth Connections to businesses and institutions. As a leading member of the Research Coast Broadband Coalition, FPUAnet Communications seeks to interconnect the five-county region.

FPUA operates the Manatee Observation & Education Center (MOEC), which is located on Moore’s Creek east of Indian River Drive. MOEC’s mission is to promote understanding and responsible actions for the protection of the fragile ecosystems in the Treasure Coast Region and its inhabitants. It provides a clean and safe facility for viewing manatees and other inhabitants of the Indian River Lagoon. Almost 33,000 visitors from all over the world visited the Center during fiscal year 2013. A total of 645 manatees were sighted. Volunteers provided a substantial donation to the Center with a total of 10,846 hours of volunteer time.

FACTORS AFFECTING FINANCIAL CONDITION

The information presented in the financial statements is perhaps best understood when considered from the broader perspective of the environment within which FPUA provides service.

Local Economy

Fort Pierce is located on Florida’s east coast, 120 miles north of Miami and 220 miles south of Jacksonville. The estimated 2013 population of the City of Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County was 41,729 and 281,151 respectively. Fort Pierce is the commercial center of the county, with approximately 24.5 square miles in land area. Its metropolitan area includes a transportation network comprised of Interstate 95, Florida’s Turnpike, U.S. Highway 1, State Roads 68 and 70, Florida East Coast Railway, St. Lucie County International Airport, and the Port of Fort Pierce.

FPUA’s service area includes both the area within the corporate limits of the City of Fort Pierce and the Town of St. Lucie Village, and portions of unincorporated St. Lucie County. Approximately 82% of the system revenues are derived from services provided within the City of Fort Pierce, and 18% from services provided in the Town of St. Lucie Village and unincorporated St. Lucie County.

The economy of Fort Pierce and surrounding St. Lucie County is primarily based upon government, agriculture, construction, retail and wholesale trade, light manufacturing, tourism, biotechnology, and sport and commercial fishing. Although there are several telemarketing service centers, commercial centers, research institutions, and a Walmart Distribution Center located in the area, the downturn in the construction industry continues to have a negative impact on employment.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Reportfpua.com/files/Information/financialreports/CAFR/2013_CAFR.pdf· comprehensive annual financial report . ... sherry l furgerson; robert jones. - [PDF Document] (14)

St. Lucie County continues to develop a 1,800-acre State recognized Research and Education Park in FPUA’s service territory. Florida State University has a Regional Medical School Campus located at Indian River State College, which now offers numerous Bachelor’s Degree Programs. FPUA’s service area is developing into an educational and research center featuring the following facilities:

Indian River State College (IRSC)

Florida Atlantic University (FAU)/Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution

Smithsonian Fort Pierce Marine Station

Smithsonian Marine Ecosystem Exhibit

U.S. Department of Agriculture/Horticultural Research Laboratory

University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Research and Education Center

Manatee Observation and Education Center There has been very little new development during fiscal year 2013, a trend that has been experienced across the nation. Many recently constructed residential units still sit vacant; however, the real estate market is showing some signs of improvement. On the commercial side, several industrial parks are in the planning stages along the Kings Highway corridor. Although current development activity in the area is limited, FPUA is optimistic about growth in the long term. Improvements such as major roadwork, continued beautification of the downtown area, and private investment make the area attractive to new residents. Reconstruction of the City Marina outer docks damaged in the 2004 hurricanes began in 2012, and should provide an economic boost to the downtown area.

Strategic Management Planning FPUA’s Strategic Plan continues to promote communication and cooperation, and encourages increased employee involvement in achieving company goals that support FPUA’s Mission Statement:

“To provide our customers with economical, reliable, and friendly service in a continuous effort to enhance the quality of life in our community.”

In January 2013, a workshop was held to re-evaluate and set forth the key result areas (KRA’s) FPUA will focus on as the organization moves forward. Participants in the workshop included the FPUA Board, key FPUA staff, and members of the Fort Pierce City Commission. KRA’s and the corresponding goals and objectives were identified as follows:

Improve Efficiency and Cost Effectiveness – Efforts continue toward automating workflows and eliminating redundant processes where possible. As FPUA strives to build a competitive attitude within the organization, it has been recognized that the benefits of past efforts have resulted in the ability to lower electric rates.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Reportfpua.com/files/Information/financialreports/CAFR/2013_CAFR.pdf· comprehensive annual financial report . ... sherry l furgerson; robert jones. - [PDF Document] (15)

6

Improve Customer Education and Outreach – Regardless of the positive changes made at FPUA over recent years, public perception of the organization may not be fully aligned with reality. It is important to effectively communicate actions FPUA is taking to achieve goals associated with the mission statement. This may be accomplished by promoting community involvement through educational programs and environmental stewardship.

Increase Revenues – Although FPUA has successfully cut costs throughout the organization, staff recognizes that the same impact on the bottom line can be achieved by increasing revenues. Some areas to be considered are developing new services and products, as well as encouraging development and re-development of areas within the FPUA service territory. This will be accomplished through more aggressive marketing programs, reductions in connection fees charged to customers, and implementing programs for financing connection fees.

Workforce Development – As FPUA’s workforce ages, it is critical to attract, retain and promote the most qualified employees within the organization. It is also important to improve motivation and morale as staff is continually being asked to do more with less.

Long-Term Capital Planning

FPUA’s capital renewal, expansion, and improvements continue. Capital plans are primarily driven by replacement of aging infrastructure and street and highway reconstruction projects. The multiplicity of requirements by regulatory agencies increases the cost of those improvements. Most replacements increase costs and provide no additional revenue, but are expected to have a positive impact on operations and maintenance expenses. Receipt of contributed capital, which helps fund the infrastructure needed to support growth in the future, has slowed dramatically. In an effort to strategically expend FPUA’s limited resources, Department Heads meet periodically to discuss and update capital plans. This allows for coordination among the numerous agencies with which FPUA’s staff interacts to accomplish its plans.

AWARDS

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to FPUA for its CAFR for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. This was the 19th consecutive year that FPUA has achieved this prestigious award.

In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a governmental unit must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized CAFR. This report must satisfy both GAAP and applicable legal requirements.

A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only. We believe that our current CAFR continues to meet the Certificate of Achievement Program’s requirements, and will be submitted to the GFOA to determine eligibility for another certificate.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

16

This section of Fort Pierce Utilities Authority’s (FPUA) Comprehensive Annual Financial Report presents the analysis of FPUA’s financial performance during the fiscal year, which ended on September 30, 2013 (FY 2013). Please read it in conjunction with the financial statements, which follow this section. FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS Operating revenues increased $543,000 over last year, and operating expenses increased $469,000. Both increases were primarily a result of the addition of two contract gas customers which began billing in August 2012. Operating income of $8,738,000 was up $74,000 from $8,664,000, which was reported for the previous year. The ability to adjust rates in order to ensure that FPUA’s electric, water, wastewater and natural gas utilities each generate sufficient revenue to cover their respective expenses is critical to FPUA’s financial health. Rate adjustments were implemented in April 2013, and were implemented again in March 2014. These adjustments are described in detail on page 23. Current projections indicate that additional increases will be required in order to minimize cash flow deficiencies. Rates will continue to be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that FPUA’s rate structure properly reflects the recovery of the cost of operating and maintaining its electric, water, wastewater and natural gas systems. Excluding the reduced recovery of power costs, electric operating revenues increased 4.5% over last year. Water and wastewater operating revenues were up 1.2% and 2.9% respectively from FY 2012. Excluding the increased recovery of gas costs, natural gas operating revenues increased 19.0 %, and units billed increased 49.1%. Units billed decreased 6.6% in the water system, 1.5% in the electric system, and 0.3% in the wastewater system. The average number of services billed decreased slightly in the electric, water and gas systems, but increased 1.3% in the wastewater system. Based upon current estimates for the cost of remediation of the former site of the H.D. King Power Plant, additional cost of $748,000 has been accrued to cover the costs associated with testing and cleanup of the site. An estimated liability in the amount of $1.95 million is recorded as of September 30, 2013 related to the remediation (See Note O for details). The Distribution to the City of Fort Pierce increased $599,000 over last year as anticipated. This was primarily a result of the February 2012 restructuring of the electric and gas rates. Portions of the purchased power and gas costs were moved in the base rates and became subject to the 6% distribution calculation multiplier. In order to limit the amount of future rate increases, staff continues to limit non-essential spending. However, the need for preventive maintenance and renewal and replacement capital spending places pressure on cash flow. FPUA intends to continue to provide the very reliable and high quality of service customers have come to expect, even though tough economic times have obligated staff to focus on operating with limited resources.

OVERVIEW OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FPUA is a single enterprise fund even though it provides various utility services. The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is presented in four sections: Introductory, Financial, Statistical, and Compliance. The Introductory section includes a letter of transmittal and other material that is useful in understanding the reporting entity. The Financial section includes the independent auditor’s report and financial statements of FPUA. The financial statements present fairly the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the fiscal year. Selected financial and demographic information that is beneficial to the reader in understanding FPUA’s historical growth and future growth prospects is found in the Statistical section of the CAFR. The Compliance section includes compliance reports.

REQUIRED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS The financial statements report information about FPUA using accounting methods similar to those used by private sector companies. These statements offer short- and long-term financial information about FPUA’s activities. The Statement of Net Position includes all of FPUA’s assets and liabilities and provides information about the nature and amounts of investments in resources (assets) and the obligations to FPUA’s creditors (liabilities). It also provides the basis for computing rate of return, evaluating the capital structure of FPUA, and assessing the liquidity and financial flexibility of FPUA. All of the current year’s revenues and expenses are accounted for in the Statement of Revenues, Expenses and Changes in Net Position. This statement measures the success of FPUA’s operations over the past year and can be used to determine whether FPUA has successfully recovered all of its costs through user fees and other charges. This statement also measures FPUA’s profitability and credit worthiness. The other required financial statement is the Statement of Cash Flows. The primary purpose of this statement is to provide information about FPUA’s cash receipts and cash payments during the reporting period. This statement reports cash receipts, cash payments, and net changes in cash resulting from operations, investing and financing activities. It also provides answers to such questions as, “where did cash come from, what was cash used for, and what was the change in the cash balance during the reporting period?” FINANCIAL ANALYSIS OF FPUA AS A WHOLE

One of the most important questions asked about FPUA’s finances is, “Is FPUA, as a whole, better off or worse off as a result of the year’s activities?” The Statement of Net Position and the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net Position report information about FPUA’s activities in a way that will help answer this question. These two statements report the net position of FPUA and changes in them. FPUA’s net position – the difference between assets and liabilities – may be thought of as one way to measure financial health or financial position. Over time, increases or decreases in FPUA’s net position are one indicator of whether its financial health is improving or deteriorating. However, other non-financial factors such as changes in economic conditions, customer growth, and legislative mandates must also be considered.

Although FPUA’s total Net Position decreased from last year by $290,000, it is important to note that Unrestricted Net Position increased $2,355,000. Total assets have decreased primarily due to a 2.7% decrease in capital asset valuation, which is a result of decreased investment due to the implementation of cost cutting measures, as well accelerating depreciation on certain asset classes. The decrease in capital asset valuation was partially offset by higher balances in unrestricted cash and investments. Total liabilities decreased as a result of the annual repayment of principal on revenue bonds payable. The analysis below focuses on FPUA’s Net Position (Table 1) and Changes in Net Position (Table 2) during the year.

Many of the explanations of the changes in net position have been discussed previously in the financial highlights. Rate adjustments, low natural gas prices, and the addition of three natural gas contract customers have contributed to the most significant changes from the prior year. The distribution to the City of Fort Pierce, based on FY 2013 revenues, computes to $5,605,000 and will be paid in April 2014 (see Note E for details). Last year’s distribution, based on FY 2012 revenues, totaled $5,365,000, and was paid in April 2013. The increase in the 2014 distribution reflects a full year of billing the electric and gas rates which were restructured to increase the base rates which are subject to the calculation at 6% of gross revenue. CAPITAL ASSETS Major projects, and the costs associated with each during FY 2013, include:

Repump #2 Facility Upgrades $858,000

Water Treatment Plant:

Hypochlorite Conversion 808,000

Sand Filter Rehabilitation 410,000

Ground Water Rule 4-Log Improvements 400,000

Electric Transmission and Distribution System Improvements 391,000

Wastewater Main Lining 385,000

Electric New Construction - Commercial 306,000

Water Main, Service and Valve Replacements 303,000

Wastewater Main and Lateral Replacements 275,000

Since many of the projects rehabilitate deteriorating lines in the older sections of the City, the impact on operating and maintenance expenses is expected to be favorable. However, over 130 miles of old water and wastewater lines remain in those systems. Replacement of these lines is being phased over a 25-year period to soften the impact on rates. At the end of FY 2013, FPUA had $216,360,000 invested in a broad range of net utility capital assets, including its electric and natural gas transmission and distribution systems, water treatment plant, water transmission and distribution mains, water storage facilities, pump stations, water reclamation facility, MWRF deep injection wells, and related wastewater collection plant facilities. This amount represents an overall decrease in capital assets of $5,977,000, or a 2.7% reduction since September 30, 2012 (see Note C for more information on Capital Assets). This change consists of $9,323,000 in capital acquisitions and contributed assets, less $15,300,000 of depreciation. Staff continues to accelerate depreciation on certain asset classes by reducing the useful life of assets, based on current data.

DEBT ADMINISTRATION At September 30, 2013, FPUA had outstanding revenue bonds in the amount of $95,087,000. Debt service schedules extend to October 1, 2029. Interest rates range from 1.34% to 5.90% on the bonds. Principal payments are due October 1 of each year. Principal on the bonds of $6,653,000 was due and paid on October 1, 2013. On December 21, 2012, the bond rating firm, Standard & Poor’s, raised its rating on FPUA’s revenue bonds to an ‘A’. On April 30, 2010, the bond rating firm, Fitch Ratings Ltd., recalibrated FPUA’s underlying long term rating to ‘A+’. Both firms also stated that FPUA’s rating outlook is stable. FPUA’s debt service coverage ratio was 2.51 times for the twelve months ended September 30, 2013, compared to 2.41 times on September 30, 2012. This coverage ratio remains well above the 1.25 minimum requirement. In January 2012, FPUA’s master bond resolution was amended with the consent of FPUA’s bond insurers. As a condition of the amendment, FPUA has agreed to make monthly transfers totaling $1,976,825 to its Debt Service Reserve account over the subsequent 60 months. This agreement is expected to provide investors additional assurance that bond principal and interest will be paid as promised, as the credit rating of FPUA’s bond insurers continues to decline. On November 14, 2012, FPUA issued Taxable Utilities Refunding Revenue Bonds, Series 2012 at an interest rate of 1.34% to provide for the redemption of Series 2003 Utilities Revenue Bonds, with an interest rate of 5%, on October 1, 2013. The net present value savings is calculated to be $1,155,334. See Note F for additional information related to revenue bonds payable. ECONOMIC FACTORS AND NEXT YEAR’S BUDGETS AND RATES The real estate market decline has slowed – in spite of low prices and a record number of foreclosures, real estate sales are beginning to pick up. Some upscale development has taken place in the service territory; however, many completed units remain unoccupied. Although the units billed in the electric, water and wastewater systems decreased slightly in FY 2013, gas system units billed increased. The average number of services billed decreased slightly in the electric, water and gas systems, but increased in the wastewater system. Conservation, improved appliance efficiency, limitations imposed by the South Florida Water Management District, abatement of dry weather conditions, mild winters, and elasticity of demand have all contributed to overall decreases in utility unit sales in recent years.

Rate studies are updated for all utilities at least annually, and rate adjustments will continue to be made in future years to ensure that FPUA’s electric, water, wastewater, and natural gas utilities each generate sufficient revenue to cover their respective expenses. A power cost adjustment (PCA) and purchased gas adjustment (PGA) are adopted as needed by the FPUA Board to ensure FPUA is recovering the cost of energy, and stabilize the amounts billed to customers. Rate adjustments were implemented in April 2013 and were implemented again in March 2014. On April 1, 2013, the following changes became effective:

Decrease of $4 per 1,000 kilowatt hours was applied to the base electric energy rate,

Increase of 6.5% was applied to the water customer and volume charges, and

Increase of 2.4% based on the 2012 Florida Public Service Commission price index (PSC index) was applied to the wastewater customer and collection charges and the natural gas customer and commodity charges.

On March 1, 2014, the following changes became effective:

Decrease of $1 per 1,000 kilowatt hours was applied to the base electric energy rate,

Increase of 3.7% was applied to the water customer and volume charges, and

Increase of 1.6% based on the 2013 PSC index was applied to the wastewater customer and collection charges and the natural gas customer and commodity charges.

Rates will continue to be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure FPUA’s rate structure properly reflects the recovery of the cost of operating and maintaining its electric, water, wastewater, and natural gas systems. Current rate schedules and charges are available on FPUA’s website, www.fpua.com. CONTACTING FPUA’S FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

NOTE A – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Reporting Entity

The voters of the City of Fort Pierce, Florida authorized the organization of the Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) at a special election held May 30, 1972. FPUA commenced operations as of June 30, 1972, and is responsible for management and operation of the combined Electric, Water, Wastewater, and Gas Systems, FPUAnet and the Manatee Observation and Education Center. The City Charter, Article XII, defines the powers, duties, and responsibilities of FPUA. The members of FPUA’s governing board are elected and may be removed from office by the Fort Pierce City Commission. FPUA’s budget is subject to approval of the City Commission, as are rates for service.

The accounts at September 30, 2013, and for the year then ended, of the various utility systems of FPUA are included as a discretely presented component unit of the City of Fort Pierce, Florida, financial statements. FPUA has no component units. Basis of Presentation

The accounts of FPUA are an enterprise fund. An enterprise fund is a Proprietary type fund used to account for operations (a) that are financed and operated in a manner similar to private business enterprises -- where the intent of the governing body is that the costs (expenses, including depreciation) of providing goods or services to the general public on a continuing basis be financed or recovered primarily through user charges; or (b) where the governing body has decided that periodic determination of revenues earned, expenses incurred, and/or net income is appropriate for capital maintenance, public policy, management control, accountability, or other purposes. Measurement Focus, Basis of Accounting, and Financial Statement Presentation

Measurement focus is a term used to describe “which” transactions are recorded within the various financial statements. Basis of accounting refers to “when” transactions are recorded regardless of the measurement focus applied. The accompanying financial statements are reported using the “economic resources measurement focus,” and the “accrual basis of accounting.” Revenues are recorded when earned and expenses are recorded when a liability is incurred, regardless of the timing of related cash flows. GASB Statement No. 49 – FPUA financials are presented in accordance with the provisions of GASB Statement No. 49, Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pollution Remediation Obligations, beginning with the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011. FPUA and the Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency (FPRA) have a dual responsibility for pollution remediation and monitoring of the former H.D. King Power Plant site. The cost for this action has been estimated, at September 30, 2013, to be $1,948, which is expected to be paid out over the next two fiscal years (See Note O).

Operating Revenues and Expenses – Operating revenues and expenses generally result from providing services in connection with FPUA’s principal ongoing operations. The principal operating revenues of FPUA consists of charges to customers for sales of electricity, water and natural gas and services including wastewater collection, operation of the Manatee Observation and Education Center (MOEC) and FPUAnet communications services. Operating expenses include the cost of sales and services, administrative expenses, and depreciation on capital assets. All revenues and expenses not meeting this definition are reported as non-operating revenues and expenses.

Assets, Liabilities and Net Position

Pooled Cash and Investments - FPUA, for accounting and investment purposes, pools certain cash and investments. Cash and cash equivalents are considered to be cash on hand, certificates of deposit, Local Government Surplus Funds Trust Fund, Overnight Repurchase Agreements, and short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less from the date of acquisition. In accordance with GASB 31 investments are stated at fair value based on per share prices. The Florida PRIME Investment Pool (LGIP) is considered to be a “2a-7 like” investment, and is accounted for at fair value for financial reporting. The Fund B however, is accounted for and reported with a fluctuating Net Asset Value (NAV). The unrecognized gain on this investment, at September 30, 2013, is $20. Florida PRIME has a current rating by Standard and Poor’s of AAAm while Fund B is not currently rated by any nationally recognized rating agency. There is a risk of loss on these investments based upon the fluctuation of interest rates and lengths of maturity. Florida PRIME Fund B is governed by Chapters 215 and 218 of the Florida Statutes and Chapter 19-7 of the Florida Administrative Code, which identifies the Rules of the State Board of Administration (SBA). These rules provide guidance and establish the general operating procedures for the administration of the fund. The Board of Trustees of the SBA, delegate the administrative and investment authority to the Executive Director of the SBA. An Investment Advisory Council and a Participant Local Government Advisory Council are appointed to review this policy annually and propose any changes. All actions are subject to Applicable Florida Law. Florida PRIME is not a registrant with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC); however the Board has adopted operating procedures consistent with the requirements for a 2a-7 fund.

Unbilled Service Receivables - These receivables represent the estimated amount of accounts receivable for services that have not been billed as of the balance sheet date. The amounts are a result of a timing difference between the end of the financial statement cycle (month end) and the billing cycle (various dates within the month for each billing period).

Inventories - Inventories of fuel, chemicals, supplies, construction materials, and utility plant replacement parts are recorded at lower of weighted average cost or market.

32

Utility Plant - Utility plant is stated at historical cost for items constructed or acquired by purchase and at estimated fair market value on the date received for contributed capital. Utility plant assets are defined by FPUA as assets with an initial, individual cost of $5,000 or more and an estimated useful life of one year or more. (See Note C for interest capitalization.) Depreciation of all exhaustible utility plant assets, including those acquired through intergovernmental grants externally restricted to capital acquisitions, is charged as an expense against operations. Accumulated depreciation is reported on the balance sheet. Depreciation is calculated using the straight line method over the following estimated useful lives:

Structures and improvements 3-55 years Equipment 3-40 years Transmission, distribution,

and collection plants 5-60 years Purchased Power and Gas Adjustments - The rate schedules of the Electric and Gas Systems provide that fuel cost increases, decreases, and credits, as computed under formulas adopted by FPUA, will be passed on to the customers. These charges or credits are recorded as a deferred charge or deferred revenue. Long-Term Liabilities – Bonds payable are reported net of any applicable bond premium or discount. Bond premiums and discounts, as well as issuance costs, are deferred and amortized over the life of the bonds using the effective interest method. Bond issuance costs are reported as deferred charges and amortized over the term of the related debt. Net Position – FPUA’s equity is presented as net position and displayed in six components:

Invested in Capital Assets, Net of Related Debt – Consists of capital assets, net of accumulated depreciation and reduced by the outstanding balances of any bonds that are attributable to the acquisition, construction, or improvement of those assets.

Restricted Capital Improvement Charges – Consists of the unspent Capital Improvement Charges (CIC's) collected in the Electric, Water and Wastewater Systems. The respective balances as of September 30, 2013 are $380, $5,703, and $657. Electric CIC’s are used to fund the cash outlay or debt service associated with the expansion of Electric Substations and Electric Transmission & Distribution Systems. In the Water and Wastewater Systems, CIC’s are used to fund the cash outlay or debt service associated with specific expansion and growth related projects.

Restricted for Emergencies – Consists of $2,000 in net position, set aside for emergencies which is limited to paying for repairs or replacements of FPUA capital assets damaged or destroyed by a disaster.

Restricted for Renewals and Replacements – Consists of net position which is limited to paying for the cost of extensions, enlargements or additions to or the replacement of FPUA capital assets.

Unrestricted – All other net position that do not meet the definition of “restricted” or “invested in capital assets, net of related debt.”

Comparative data

Comparative total data for the prior year has been presented in order to provide an understanding of the changes in the financial position and the results of operations of FPUA.

Budget Process

FPUA is required to prepare, adopt, and furnish a copy to the City Commission of the City of Fort Pierce an annual budget at least 45 days prior to the beginning of the next fiscal year. The annual budget and any amendments thereto shall be in effect when approved by FPUA and when any line item expense has not been disapproved by four-fifths (4/5) vote of the City Commission within 30 days of submission. The budget is prepared on the accrual basis. The budget and amendments thereto for the year ended September 30, 2013, have been approved according to the above procedures.

Subsequent Events

Management has performed an analysis of the activities and transactions subsequent to September 30, 2013 to determine the need for any adjustments to and/or disclosures within the audited financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2013.

NOTE B – CASH AND INVESTMENTS Cash Deposits - Florida Statutes require state and local governmental units to deposit monies with a financial institution classified as a "Qualified Public Depository," which is a multiple financial institution pool whereby groups of securities pledged by the various financial institutions provide common collateral for their deposits of public funds. This pool is provided as additional insurance to the federal depository insurance and allows for additional assessments against the member institutions, providing full insurance for public deposits. FPUA had deposits only with qualifying institutions as of September 30, 2013, or with banks in which depository insurance was sufficient to cover the deposit balance. At year end, FPUA’s carrying amount of deposits was $646 and the bank balance was $217. Investments – The following investments are considered cash equivalents for purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows and are shown net of any unrecognized loss (see Note A, Pooled Cash and Investments). FPUA’s investments held throughout the year are principally the same as the investments held as of September 30, 2013. Due to fluctuations in cash flows, FPUA maintains investments in overnight repurchase agreements. The interest income generated on these investments, for the year ended September 30, 2013, was $101. As of September 30, 2013, FPUA had the following investments:

Investment Fair Value

Florida State Board of Administration - Florida PRIME

Investment Pool LGIP (Standard and Poors rated AAAm) 5,008$

Florida PRIME Investment Pool Fund B

(This fund is not currently rated) 148

Seacoast National Bank Sweep 40,136

PNC Money Market 7,052

Harbor Community Bank Certificate of Deposit 700

Total 53,044$

Interest Rate Risk - As a means of limiting its exposure to fair value losses arising from fluctuating interest rates, FPUA’s investment policy states that when interest rates are at historically low levels, funds will be placed in short maturities and that when interest rates are at historically high levels, funds may be placed into longer maturities to lock into these yields. As noted above, FPUA was required to become a participant in the SBA’s Fund B. The weighted average life (WAL) of Fund B at September 30, 2013 is estimated at 4.04 years. However, because Fund B consists of restructured or defaulted securities there is considerable uncertainty regarding the weighted average life.

Credit Risk - FPUA is authorized by Resolution to invest in:

(1) Local Government Surplus Funds Trust Funds. (2) Negotiable direct obligations of the United States Government, or obligations, the

principal and interest of which are unconditionally guaranteed by the United States Government.

(3) Obligations of the federal farm credit banks, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage

Corporation, including Federal Home Loan Corporation participation certificates, or the Federal Home Loan Bank or its district banks, or obligations guaranteed by the Government National Mortgage Association, U.S. Treasury, agencies, and instrumentalities.

(4) Repurchase agreements secured by the types of investments listed above, restricted as

to acquisition, term, and market value. (5) Interest-bearing time deposits or savings accounts in banks organized under the laws of

this state, in national banks organized under the laws of the United States and doing business and situated in this state, in savings and loan associations which are under state supervision, or in federal savings and loan associations located in this state and organized under federal law and federal supervision, provided that any such deposits are secured by collateral as may be prescribed by law.

(6) Deposits and certificates of deposit in out-of-state banks, savings and loan associations,

and other regulated financial institutions insured by the FDIC. (7) Full faith and credit direct general obligations of any state, or unlimited tax direct

obligations of any political subdivision thereof, to the payment of which the full faith and credit of such political subdivision is pledged, provided that at the time of purchase such obligations are rated in either of the two highest rating categories by a nationally recognized rating agency.

Concentration of Credit Risk - FPUA places no limit on the amount that may be invested with any one issuer. A combined 85% of FPUA’s investments are in overnight repurchase agreements and the Florida PRIME Investment Pool.

Additionally, FPUA’s Master Bond Resolution require renewal and replacement, emergency reserve and debt service reserve subaccount funds with minimum requirements of $500, $900 and $4,139, respectively. These reserves are funded in the amounts of $564, $2,000 and $4,139 respectively, at September 30, 2013. Defeasance of Revenue Bonds Payable

In prior years, FPUA defeased certain outstanding utilities revenue bonds issued for the systems payable out of revenues derived from the operation of the utility systems. These defeasances were achieved by placing the proceeds of refunding bonds in irrevocable trusts to provide for all future debt service payments on the old bonds. Accordingly, the trust account assets and the liabilities (including bond discounts and financing costs) for the defeased bonds are not included in FPUA's financial statements. At September 30, 2013, Utilities Revenue Bonds Series 1991 in the amount of $27,355, and Utilities Revenue Bonds Series 2003 in the amount of $19,940, are considered defeased.

NOTE H – COMPENSATED ABSENCES Current policy allows each employee eligible for vacation leave, to accumulate a maximum of 30 days of vacation at the close of the last pay period of the fiscal year. Employees are paid up to 45 days of unused vacation leave at current hourly rates upon separation from the company. Employees who are eligible for sick leave are allowed unlimited accumulation. Upon termination, employees having at least 3 and less than 10 years of continuous service with FPUA will receive pay for 1/2 of their accumulated sick leave balance up to a maximum of 45 days. Those employees having at least 10 years of continuous service with FPUA will receive pay for their accumulated sick leave balance up to a maximum of 90 days.

Accrued liabilities, based on hourly rates at September 30, 2013, have been reflected in the accounts of FPUA for vested (not contingent on employee future service) vacation and sick leave benefits at September 30, 2013, as follows: Vacation leave $ 779 Sick leave 1,051

$1,830 Annually, FPUA offers its employees the opportunity to receive payment for up to 6 days of unused sick leave, calculated at current hourly rates, providing certain established criteria have been met. This sick leave conversion plan is intended to provide incentive for sick leave to be used only when necessary. During the year ended September 30, 2013, $73 was paid to employees electing this option. FPUA also offers its employees the opportunity to sell back a portion of their accumulated sick leave, calculated at current hourly rates, providing certain established criteria have been met. Employees may elect to convert up to a maximum of 90 days of sick leave which will reduce their amount payable upon separation. During the year ended September 30, 2013, $61 was paid to employees electing this option. In addition, all employees have two opportunities per fiscal year to convert up to one half of their annual vacation accrual to cash and will reduce their amount payable upon separation. During the year ended September 30, 2013, $27 was paid to employees electing this option. NOTE I – RETIREMENT AND BENEFIT SYSTEM

Plan Description

The City of Fort Pierce Retirement and Benefit System (the System) is a cost-sharing multiple employer Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) defined benefit plan administered by the City of Fort Pierce, covering all municipal employees, including employees of FPUA.

the financial statements of the City of Fort Pierce, which can be obtained by submitting a request to 100 North U.S. Highway 1, Fort Pierce, Florida 34950. Except for the Director of Utilities, participation in the System is compulsory for all employees of FPUA. Employees working more than 25 hours per week are required to participate upon employment. As of September 30, 2013, benefits vest 100% after 5 years of service for members hired prior to October 1, 2012 and benefits vest 100% after 10 years of service for members hired on or after October 1, 2012. Upon retirement, members hired prior to October 1, 2012 are entitled to an annual retirement benefit of, payable for life, total service (years and months) times 3% of final average salary, based upon the highest 5 years out of the last 10 years. The annual retirement benefit for members hired on or after October 1, 2012 shall not exceed 75% of the member’s final average salary. Other benefit options are also available on an actuarial equivalent basis. The System also provides death and disability benefits and is governed by state statute and city ordinance. Changes to benefits may be made with the approval of the Fort Pierce City Commission. Funding Status and Progress

Per the City of Fort Pierce Code of Ordinances, Ch. 13, Art. II, Div. 1, Sec. 13-40, FPUA employees are required to contribute 6.16% of their annual salary to the System. FPUA is required to contribute amounts actuarially determined annually which, together with member contributions, are sufficient to fund the System. The System was 88.5% funded by valuation assets as of September 30, 2013.

For the three years ended 2011, 2012, and 2013 employer contributions to the System, based on the annual covered payroll, all made in accordance with actuarially determined requirements, were $3,181 (12.36%), $3,567 (13.80%) and $4,267 (16.93%) respectively. NOTE J – RISK MANAGEMENT

Fort Pierce Utilities Authority Employee Health Plan (the Plan) FPUA has been a self-insurer for health and accident claims of their employees, retirees and their families since January 1, 2000. Payments of claims under the Plan are administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida (Florida Blue). Employee contributions to the Plan are made biweekly. Any benefit claims, up to the stop loss amounts, are paid by FPUA. Claims in excess of the stop loss amounts are underwritten by an insurer. The individual stop loss amount is $100 and $3,514 in the aggregate for calendar year 2013. As of September 30, 2013, FPUA had estimated incurred unpaid claims of $673. This amount has been calculated based on the results of an actuarial analysis of the Plan, plus claims paid by Florida Blue prior to year end and paid by FPUA subsequent to year end.

Changes in FPUA’s claim liability balance during the past two fiscal years were as follows:

Beginning of Claims and Balance at

Fiscal Fiscal Year Changes in Claim Fiscal

Year Liability Estimates Payments Year End

2012 198$ 4,200$ 3,708$ 690$

2013 690 4,104 4,121 673 Other Risks of Loss

FPUA is exposed to various other risks of loss related to torts; theft of, damage to, and destruction of assets; errors and omissions; injuries to employees; and natural disasters for which FPUA carries commercial insurance. Settled claims resulting from these risks have not exceeded the commercial insurance coverage plus FEMA and State reimbursem*nts in any of the past three fiscal years. NOTE K – POSTEMPLOYMENT HEALTH CARE BENEFITS Benefit Description - FPUA provides certain health care benefits for retired employees and their families, as a single-employer (see Note J). Substantially all FPUA employees may become eligible for those benefits if they reach normal retirement age while working for FPUA. FPUA establishes the benefits provided to its employees and retirees and may amend the benefits as business conditions and statutory requirements change. In accordance with Florida Statutes, FPUA allows their retirees to participate in the same Plan offered to their active employees.

Funding Policy - Contributions to the Plan are made by the 39 participating retirees. The amount of contributions made by retirees is established annually and is an amount equivalent to the contribution made by active employees plus FPUA’s cost, based on a four-tiered benefit structure. During the fiscal year, retirees paid required contributions of $153 for the year then ended. Claims in excess of the aforementioned rates are funded by FPUA on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Annual OPEB Cost and Net OPEB Obligation - FPUA’s annual other postemployment benefit (OPEB) cost (expense) is calculated based on the annual required contribution (ARC) of the employer, an amount actuarially determined in accordance with the parameters of GASB Statement 45. The ARC represents a level of funding that would cover normal costs each year and amortize any unfunded actuarial liabilities (or funding excess) using a level-dollar payment method over a 30-year open period. A separate actuarial valuation report for postemployment benefits is available on FPUA’s website at www.fpua.com.

Interest on contributions -

Increase in Net OPEB Obligation 55

Net OPEB Obligation - beginning of year 509

Net OPEB Obligation - end of year 564$

FPUA’s annual OPEB cost, the percentage of annual OPEB cost contributed to the Plan, the net OPEB obligation for FY 2013, and the two preceding years were as follows:

Fiscal Percentage of Net OPEB Year Annual Annual OPEB (Asset)/ Ended OPEB Cost Cost Contributed Obligation 2011 $364 15.1% $ 456 2012 75 29.3% 509 2013 77 28.6% 564

Funded Status and Funding Progress - The net OPEB obligation was not funded as of October 1, 2012, the most recent actuarial valuation date. As a result, the unfunded actuarial accrued liability (UAAL) for benefits was $709. The covered payroll (annual payroll of active employees covered) was $13,977. Therefore, the ratio of the UAAL to the covered payroll was 5.1%.

Actuarial valuations of an ongoing plan involve estimates of the value of reported amounts and assumptions about the probability of occurrence of events far into the future. Examples include assumptions about future employment, mortality, and the healthcare cost trend. Amounts determined regarding the funded status of the Plan and the annual required contributions of the employer are subject to continual revision as actual results are compared with past expectations and new estimates are made about the future. The schedule of funding progress, presented as required supplementary information following the notes to the financial statements, presents multiyear trend information about whether the actuarial value of plan assets is increasing or decreasing over time relative to the actuarial accrued liabilities for benefits.

Actuarial Methods and Assumptions - Projections of benefits for financial reporting purposes are based on the substantive Plan (the Plan as understood by the employer and the plan members) and include the types of benefits provided at the time of each valuation and the historical pattern of sharing of benefit costs between the employer and plan members to that point. The actuarial methods and assumptions used include techniques that are designed to reduce the effects of short-term volatility in actuarial accrued liabilities and the actuarial value of assets, consistent with the long-term perspective of the calculations.

In the October 1, 2012 actuarial valuation, the projected unit credit cost method was used. Under this method, past service liability is determined on an individual basis by applying the ratio of each individual’s past service to his total projected service. The actuarial assumptions included a 4.0% investment rate of return, with 2.75% of this amount being attributed to inflation, based on the expected long-term return on FPUA’s surplus funds. The cost of covered medical services has been assumed to increase at the rate of 5.0% per year, compounded annually. The UAAL is being amortized using a 30-year open level-dollar amortization method. NOTE L – CAPITAL LEASES

On January 4, 2013, FPUA terminated their lease with Pitney Bowes prior to the lease end date and committed to a new five-year capital lease for upgraded equipment and software used for billing and mailing. The equipment has been capitalized at its fair market value (FMV) of $142. As of September 30, 2013 the FMV less accumulated amortization was $120. The effective interest/maintenance expense for the year ended September 30, 2013 was $19. Future lease payments for this capital lease are as follows:

Year ending September 30 Amount

2014 $22

FMPA St. Lucie Project FPUA has entered into agreements with FMPA, of which it is a member, and with certain other members of FMPA, for entitlement to capacity, energy, and transmission services from Florida Power & Light’s (FP&L) St. Lucie Unit No. 2 (the Unit) which is located on South Hutchinson Island near Fort Pierce, and through a reliability exchange agreement related to St. Lucie Unit No. 1, located at the same site. Pursuant to a Power Sales Contract and a Project Support Contract, FPUA has acquired an entitlement share of FMPA’s allocation of these services. The Power Sales Contract requires payments for each month in which capacity, energy, or transmission services are available from the St. Lucie Project. Payments due each month are based upon an annual budget. Once each year, the excess or deficiency of payments related to actual cost is calculated and applied to the next year’s monthly statements from FMPA to FPUA.

The Power Sales Contract will remain in effect until the latest of (i) the date that the principal, premium, if any, and interest on all bonds have been paid, or funds are set aside for the payment thereof; (ii) the date the Unit is decommissioned or finally disposed of as an electric generating unit pursuant to the Participation Agreement, or FMPA’s interest in the Unit is terminated pursuant to the Participating Agreement or otherwise disposed of; or (iii) the date all obligations of FMPA under the Participation Agreement have been paid, performed, or provided for. In any month when electric capacity, energy, or transmission services are not made available to FPUA, payment is made to FMPA under a Project Support Contract in a like amount as would have been due under the Power Sales Contract. Purchases under these contracts are accounted for as operating expenses by FPUA. Total cost included in operating expenses for FY 2012 and FY 2013 was $6,986 and $6,662 respectively. FPUA is committed under the agreements to payments of $7,608 for the year ending September 30, 2014. Florida Gas Transmission FPUA executed an All Requirements Gas Services Agreement with Florida Gas Utility (FGU) on January 15, 2002. As a member of the All Requirements project, FPUA is required to purchase natural gas and the firm capacity needed for its delivery through FGU. The firm capacity of natural gas is the availability of the pipeline required to transport the natural gas to FPUA. This agreement will remain in effect until cancelled by FPUA. On July 3, 2012, FPUA acquired additional firm capacity from the City of Sunrise, Florida in order to meet the needs of new industrial customers. This agreement will remain in effect until July 2, 2017 or until cancelled by FPUA. In FY 2014, FPUA will be entitled to firm capacity of 514,912 MMbtu, and will be committed to purchase 146,400 MMbtu of natural gas at a cost of $574. The amounts purchased under these contracts, for FY 2012 and FY 2013 were $1,325 and $1,257 respectively.

FMPA Treasure Coast Energy Center FPUA has entered into an agreement with FMPA to manage and operate their facility located in St Lucie County near Fort Pierce. The Treasure Coast Energy Center (TCEC) is a natural gas fueled power generation site. The initial terms of this agreement(s) commenced on July 24, 2007 and expired on September 30, 2011, after which the agreement became a one-year evergreen. The agreement has been extended for the year ended September 30, 2013. FPUA has been engaged to manage, operate and maintain the TCEC. TCEC employees are on the payroll of FPUA and all costs associated with them are reimbursed bi-weekly by FMPA. TCEC employee costs and revenue for FY 2012 and FY 2013 totaled $1,642 and $1,654 respectively.

NOTE O – EXTRAORDINARY ITEMS FPUA transferred the ownership of the former site of the Henry D. King Power Plant to the FPRA on October 15, 2009. A grant awarded to the FPRA for the cleanup was not sufficient to cover the remaining cost of remediation. Based upon current estimates, the FPRA consultant has estimated the cost over the next two years to be $3,698. Voluntary Cleanup Tax Credits and grant funds have been estimated to cover costs of $1,750. Based on these assumptions, FPUA will be responsible for the remaining $1,948. The amount expected to be paid in FY 2014 is $1,191. The remainder has been recorded as Other Noncurrent Liabilities in the accompanying financial statements. As this project progresses, estimates and the anticipated cost of completion will be reevaluated.
