Nothing nbew for those who folow Orbite, but the debenture idea makes a whole lot of sense, considering they are likely to be getting the 40% tax credit on the building of the plant. In other words, instead of waiting for the money to come back from the government, Orb. --as others stated-- rewarded the companies who have followed them by issuing the debentures. Shareholders win because there is no dilution. Investment firms get great terms. Orbite wins because it doubles (leverage) the amount of money they will be getting from the credit. I have a feeling they will be using it sooner than later (HPA 2).
