Capital Recovery Service ™ (CRS)

Quickly Recover CAPEX Funds Spent on Essential Infrastructure

and Convert Them to a Service Utility

Inject Liquidity for Budget Stabilization, Economic Stimulus or Balance Sheet Improvement

(1) Identify your infrastructure. Its value and remaining useful life are determined.
(2) Identify a long-term revenue source to share as the support for cash provided.
(3) Decide whether transaction is on or off balance sheet.
SP then structures the utility fees to minimize all parties’ risk while maximizing flexibility using unsecured, long-dated infrastructure capital sources.

The CRS is a utility structure (like gas, electric, and water) which addresses essentiality and flexibility.

SP’s utilities deliver continuous reliability 24 hours per day x 365 days a year, safely and efficiently, protecting you from unexpected repairs and insufficient maintenance.

Using GASB 60 you can retain complete ownership, or GASB 87 as a non-collateralized service that SP owns. This is a clear liquidity option for municipalities, authorities, schools and healthcare. SP invests in infrastructure with a mandate for such to be kept reliable, safe, and efficient in a manner that protects taxpayers and the institutions that serve them.

Without impacting your use or control, we assume many of the ownership responsibilities of the essential infrastructure. When assets are in a state of good repair or modernized, significant cost savings are achieved as old, unreliable and costly situations are efficiently eliminated. SP is a clear alternative to traditional purchase or public works procurement with their Budgeting, Financing, Bonding, Contracting, PPP’s, Leases, EPCs and Shared Savings agreements.
