Bank Raises Capital Through Placement of Senior Notes

NexBank Capital, a financial services company based in Dallas, is increasing the amount of its issued senior unsecured notes by $25 million. The total issue now has increased to $75 million. Most of these raised funds will be given to its banking subsidiary for the purpose of increasing growth.

The notes will mature in 2026 and are non-callable until 2021. This private placement has fixed interest rate of 5.5% for the first five years, and then a variable rate based on 435.5 basis points spread over 3-month LIBOR.

The issue is currently rated BBB by Kroll Bond Rating Agency, an upgrade from previous BBB-. “The additional participation in the senior notes offering and recent Kroll rating upgrades reflect the financial community’s support of NexBank’s strength and continued growth,” stated John Holt, President and CEO of NexBank Capital.

These senior unsecured notes, however, are not available to the United States-based residents as the company hasn’t registered them under the Securities Act. In the past six months, NextBank Capital has raised $100 million through a mix of debt and equity offering.

NexBank focuses on three core areas: Commercial Banking, Investment Banking, and Mortgage Banking. Commercial Banking division provides loans, correspondent banking, agency services, credit services, and treasury management to its institutional clients.

Investment Banking division provides advisory on mergers and acquisitions, recapitalization and restructuring, and corporate finance among others. Meanwhile, Mortgage Banking division offers wholesale lending.

The Brown Agency launched in 2015, but started as two separate companies, Wilhelmina Austin and Heyman Talent-South. Wilhemina Austin was launched by Justin Brown in 2010. Over the four years the company was in business Wilhelmina Austin quickly emerged as one of the top agencies in central Texas for modeling talent. Their talent trusted them to find the best possible jobs, and the company always delivered.

Heyman Talent-South was an equally valuable talent firm. They specialized in locating top-quality acting talent. When the two companies merged they were able to give their clients a diverse array of opportunities. Companies looking for top talent had access to a greater portfolio and talent had access to bigger and better opportunities.

The Brown Agency is currently headquartered in Austin, Texas. To give their talent the best possible exposure the company also maintains offices in Los Angeles and in Dallas, Texas. Their three offices allow the company to stay in contact with every company.

The Brown Agency was able to keep the best leadership talent from both companies. Justin Brown has stayed on as CEO and president.

He will lend his expertise when it comes to the theatrical division.

Justin Brown was a major fan of the merger from the very start. He knew that merging the two firms together would allow the final product to be a full-service agency. He is fully committed to serving clients in the best way possible and he knows that both talent and companies benefit from this move. He hopes the Brown Agency continues to grow. The new agency takes great pride in their ability to choose the best talent and to find the best possible opportunities. The Brown Agency hopes to keep providing top-quality talent for years to come, and at a larger scale.

Talent identification is a critical skill, and the Brown Agency is one of the best in Austin, Texas. As Austin continues to boom, the Brown Agency should grow along with it. Hopefully, they grow for years to come.

OFS Director Denies Claims that George Soros is Funding #BlackLivesMatter

Sometime last year, a rumor did rounds in right wing blogs, social media and other internet sites that liberal billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundations was bankrolling Black Lives Matter protests. According to a Daily Beast article published in August 2015, conspiracy theories pointed that George Soros is bankrolling the movement to the tune of $33 million. The accusations came in fast and furious. The American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson was quoted saying that Soros funded #blacklivesmatter had become a big headache for the Democrats, while Fox News ratings powerhouse The O’Reilly Factor accused George Soros for graciously funding groups affiliated with Black Lives Matter.

The other persons accused by O’Reilly for funding the movement include Jay-Z and Beyonce. Speaking during the appointed interview in July 2015 with O’Reilly, an investigative journalist with The Washington Times, Kelly Riddell castigated the movement, saying that it was started by 3 women that work at George Soros backed organization in a previous article. Riddell sensationally added that OFS was one of the groups funded by The Open Society Foundation. The director in charge of US programs at Open Society Foundations, Mr. Ken Zimmerman debunked what he called the “rumor stew” in an interview with The Daily Beast.

He said that Soros did not at any time give money to Opal Tometi, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors, the activist accused of rallying people on Twitter following the death of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman added that his organization doesn’t fund protest per-se, instead it champions for various societal causes through well-appointed voices and channels. Daily Beast on its part expressed in the previous week that Black Lives Matter is an umbrella term that describes a decentralized network of people-meet-ups, Facebook protest, blogs and movies. This fact renders the $33 million dollars funding claim redundant.

About The Open Society Foundations
Since its establishment in 1979 by George Soros, The Open Society Foundations (OFS) has been at the forefront of campaigning for justice and democratic ideals. According to Opensocietyfoundations.org, the organization constitutes a network of foundations, partners and projects operating in over 100 countries. Soros began his philanthropic work when he began giving scholarship to black South Africans suffering under the repressive apartheid regime in the late 70’s. In the 80’s, Soros played a critical role in undermining Communism in the Eastern bloc. OFS at http://foreignpolicy.com/author/george-soros/ continues to support lawyers and paralegals representing individuals held unlawfully without legal representation around the world.

AN INVESTMENT IN FINE DINING WITH BRIAN BONAR

The tree of a lifetime can have many branches. They may grow and prosper because of their environment, or simply because, within the trunk is a seed, waiting for its time to sprout. The genetics hardly matters. Brian Bonar started his life’s tree at an early age and was fascinated with the world of economics and investment. The environment was fertile as the economic climate in this country sought new and creative businesses.

The seeds of interest were many as Bonar experienced success and recognition with his ventures and leadership. He formed companies that provided valuable services to new businesses. He helped a business get employers and make them happy with what the business offered them. He still does this through his company, Trucept Inc.

Recently, however, there is a new branch. It comes from the same need. It’s the need to create something new and to make it a financial success. And why not? Tools of finance are the tools that Brian Bonar knows well how to use. The seed sprouting is a gourmet French restaurant on a large lot in the valley of north San Diego County, in a town called Escondido. Brian Bonar loves French food and was able to find a ready-made staff from a favorite eating place that was revamping. Bellamy’s Restaurant has become a new branch on the tree of investments for Brian Bonar.

While he has always been actively involved as mentor and adviser to his company’s clients, perhaps his love of French food supplied added motivation in this venture. According to all reviews, the food at Bellamy’s is some of the very best of the valley. Read more: Brian Bonar: Executive Profile & Biography

He has given his French chef, Patrick Ponsary, the freedom to plan for the future with a dream of his own restaurant on a large plot of land nearby. The land is owned by Bonar, and it is not difficult to envision the master’s financial hand moving with the master chef’s. Learn more about Brian Bonar: http://mg2.com/about/people/brian-bonar/

Meanwhile, Bellamy’s is moving forward by recognizing that fine food comes in all cultures. The menu, the décor, and the excellent quality of both are sweeping the headlines of fine dining in the area. “Grand Cuisine at Bellamy’s” shouts the San Diego magazine. “Bellamy’s is some of the best food in San Diego Valley, served by a top-notch staff.” (http://www.sandiegomagazine.com/San-Diego-Magazine/August-2013/Grand-Cuisine-at-Bellamys)

To become an expert in business financial planning and to develop skills of leadership with companies such as Trucept, Inc., where he is now CEO, is a great accomplishment. Bonar’s doctorate and his awards as Man of the Year, have qualified him as one of the best in the area. To be confident and adventurous with a new branch on his financial tree, is to be commended. His success must reflect enjoyment of his work, but that should not be difficult with French cuisine..

Andy Wirth Is Finding New Ways to Help People Enjoy Nature

The natural world has an undeniable appeal. Anyone who looks out their window can imagine what it’d be like to hop onto a plane and head off to some beautiful vista.

But at the same time, most people never take that step to actually do so. They know they’d have a great time on the slopes. And the chance to sample refreshing hot chocolate afterwards will always be an appealing dream. Learn more about Andy Wirth: https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfSquawValley/posts/10152191670133708

But it takes an extra push to get people to actually head off to do so. And this is why the news of the new chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board is so important. The position is now held by Andy Wirth, and anyone familiar with his history can attest to the significance.

The position itself is focused on the idea of prompting people to actually get on a plane in order to experience all of the area’s natural wonder. They’ve noticed as much as anyone that while people want to get out to explore the world, they seldom actually take that first step. Their ultimate goal is to get as many people as possible out there and enjoying all the joys which nature has to offer.

The reason why Andy Wirth is such a great match for the job is the simple fact that he’s been doing something similar for years now. Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski. And while many people in that position might see it as just another job, to Wirth it’s more like a calling.

He’s someone who’s always loved nature. So getting a chance to help preserve and showcase a natural wonder was right up his alley. He quickly began to talk with people in the surrounding areas to create easier access between them for people.

Obviously Andy Wirth is a businessman. But he’s just as obviously looking at the bigger picture. Creating as much natural beauty as possible in an area will bring more vacationers to all of them. And it’s this ability to see the big picture which will serve him well in this new position as well. He’s someone who’s happiest when he’s enjoying nature and helping others to do so as well.

Securus Technologies Set to Highlight GTL Wrongdoings in a Course of Six Months

As Securus Technologies, we will release reports, articles, facts and findings that showcase all the integrity breaches and wrong doings done by Global Tel Link (GTL), an inmate communications provider. According to PR Newswire , Securus will release the reports over the course of the next six months as investigations into the communication provider continues. The investigation is being carried out by Louisiana Public Service Commission.

Richard Smith, our CEO, said that he personally loves the industry and the role that Securus plays in providing services to law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities, inmates and their loved ones as well as the society at large. He added that it was very unfortunate and offending when a carrier goes beyond the integrity boundaries that are set to regulate our industry.

We will review the wrongdoings by GTL over the next six months and release the findings to the public in a campaign that seeks to shame the company and make it act with better integrity.

The First Series

Involves a review of Order No. U-20784-B, a 17-page report that contains GTL actions when the company was contracted by Louisiana Public Service Commission (PSC). The Louisiana PSV found that:
GTL had programmed their telephone clocks to add between 15 to 36 seconds to each call duration.
GTL programmed all its telephones with higher call rates than those legally permitted under the PSC rate caps as well as its own tariffs.
GTL added inflated charges to all its customers after each call.
GTL also billed calls more than once.
GTL’s unlawful practices were aimed at overcharging clients.
Taxpayers were grossly overcharged to the tune of $1,243,000 million.

I Wish I Lived in Wengie’s World!

Wengie hosts the most popular Asian beauty show in Australia on YouTube. This comes as no surprise, as she has a bubbly, outgoing personality and is absolutely gorgeous. Her video, “Morning Routine 2016”, provides a quick look into her day.
Wengie starts her day stirring around in bed. Her cat, Mikki, jumps onto the bed and crawls beneath the covers with her to cuddle until the alarm sounds. She gets out of bed right away, not allowing herself to hit the snooze button or to clutter her mind with social media. She brushes her teeth and rinses with mouthwash. After lip moisturizer is applied, she goes to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. She chops mushrooms and tomatoes, adds some vegetable stock and seasonings, and then steams this in the microwave. Wengie then adds avocado and fresh spinach. She heads over to her favorite corner by the window, and enjoys her breakfast while looking at the beautiful view. Wengie also watches a “Ted video”, which she describes as educational and motivational. Occasionally, she will sneak a peek at comments from her fans. After breakfast it’s time to clean and make the bed.
Next, it’s time for skincare. Wengie starts with toner, followed by a moisturizer and sunscreen. Then she dots on her favorite “Bb creme”. She then uses eyebrow mascara to accentuate her lovely eyebrows. She uses a little color on eyelids and cheeks, curls her eyelashes, and applies mascara.
Afterwards, she takes down the braided pigtails in which she slept, and finger combs her hair to create a relaxed, beach look. She applies gloss or lip color to her lips.
To finish her look, Wengie puts on her “super comfy summer outfit” – her ten-year-old denim shorts, a white t-shirt, and her Nike sneakers.
