Abstract

Dramatic increases in interest rates have caused businesses to explore less traditional forms of financing in an effort to minimize capital costs. Early in 1976, a Vermont utility started to examine the possibility of raising short-term capital through the direct sale of securities to the household sector. This article reports on the planning and issue of the 360-day small denomination securities to consumers in 1979. Results show savings in interest expenses and the possibility of a greater market for the notes than had been anticipated.
