At the time designated for the sale,
the School Corporation will receive at
the offices of H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants,
LLP, 112 IronWorks Avenue, Suite C,
Mishawaka, Indiana, and consider bids
for the purchase of the following described Bonds:
Delphi Community School Corporation General Obligation Bonds of 2017
(the “Bonds”), an Indiana political subdivision, in the principal amount of
$1,500,000; Fully registered form; Denomination $5,000 and integral multiples thereof (or in such other
denomination as requested by the winning bidder); Originally dated the date
of delivery of the Bonds; Bearing interest

at a rate or rates to be determined
by bidding, payable on July 15, 2018,
and semiannually thereafter; These
Bonds will be initially issued in a Book
Entry System (as defined in the Bond
Resolution (as hereinafter defined))
unless otherwise requested by the winning bidder. Interest payable by check
mailed one business day prior to the interest payment date or by wire transfer
to depositories on the interest payment
date to the person or depository in
whose name each Bond is registered
with Regions Bank (the “Registrar”) on
the fifteenth day immediately preceding such interest payment date; Maturing or subject to mandatory redemption
on January 15 and July 15 beginning
on July 15, 2018 through not later than
January 15, 2021 on the dates and
amounts as provided by the School
Corporation prior to the sale.
As an alternative to PARITY®, bidders may submit a sealed bid to the
School Corporation’s financial advisor
at the address described above until
the time and on the date identified in
the notice given by, or on behalf of the
School Corporation, twenty-four hours
prior to the sale of the Bonds. Upon
completion of the bidding procedures
described herein, the results of the
sealed, non-electronic bids received
shall be compared to the electronic
bids received by the School Corporation. The Bonds are not subject to optional
redemption prior to maturity.
A bid may designate that a given maturity or maturities shall constitute a
term bond, and the semi-annual
amounts set forth in the schedule provided prior to the sale shall constitute
the mandatory sinking fund redemption
requirements for such term bond or
bonds. For purposes of computing net
interest cost, the mandatory redemption amounts shall be treated as maturing on the dates set forth in the
schedule provided prior to the sale.
The Bonds have been designated as
qualified tax-exempt obligations for
purposes of Section 265(b)(3).
Each bid must be for all of the Bonds
and must state the rate of interest
which each maturity of the Bonds is to
bear, stated in multiples of 1/8th or
1/100th of 1%. The maximum interest
rate of the Bonds shall not exceed
4.0% per annum. All Bonds maturing
on the same date shall bear the same
rate, and the rate of interest bid for
each maturity must be equal to or
greater than the rate bid on the immediately preceding maturity. Bids shall
set out the total amount of interest
payable over the term of the Bonds
and the net interest cost on the Bonds
covered by the bid. No bid for less
than 99.5% of the face value of the
Bonds will be considered. The Bonds
will be awarded to the highest qualified
bidder who has submitted a bid in accordance herewith the “Purchaser”).
The Purchaser will be the one who offers the lowest net interest cost to the
School Corporation, to be determined
by computing the total interest on all of
the Bonds to their maturities based
upon the schedule provided by the
School Corporation prior to the sale
and deducting therefrom the premium
bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount

bid, if any. The right is reserved
to reject any and all bids. If an acceptable bid is not received for the Bonds
on the date of sale hereinbefore fixed,
the sale may be continued from day to
day thereafter, during which time no
bids for less than the highest bid received at the time of the advertised
sale will be considered. No conditional
bids will be considered.
Each bid not submitted via PARITY®
must be enclosed in a sealed envelope
addressed to the School Corporation
and marked on the outside “Delphi
Community School Corporation Bid for
General Obligation Bonds of 2017”.
Each bid must be enclosed in a sealed
envelope addressed to the School Corporation and marked on the outside
“Delphi Community School Corporation Bid for General Obligation Bonds
of 2017”. A good faith deposit (“Deposit”) in the form of cash or certified
or cashier’s check in the amount of
$15,000 payable to the order of the
School Corporation is required to be
submitted by the Purchaser not later
than 3:30 p.m. (EST) on the next business day following the award. If such
Deposit is not received by that time,
the School Corporation may reject the
bid. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser. The Deposit will
be applied to the purchase price of the
Bonds. In the event the Purchaser fails
to honor its accepted bid, the Deposit
will be retained by the School Corporation as liquidated damages.
The Purchaser shall make payment
for such Bonds and accept delivery
thereof within five days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at such place in the City of
Indianapolis, Indiana, as the Purchaser
may designate, or at such other location mutually agreed to by the School
Corporation and the Purchaser. The
Bonds will be ready for delivery within
45 days after the date of sale. If the
School Corporation fails to have the
Bonds ready for delivery prior to the
close of banking hours on the forty-fifth
day after the date of sale, the Purchaser may secure the release of the
bid upon request in writing, filed with
the School Corporation. The Purchaser is expected to apply to a securities depository registered with the
Securities and Exchange Commission
(“SEC”) to make such Bonds depository eligible. At the time of delivery of
the Bonds to the Purchaser, the Purchaser will be required to certify to the
School Corporation the initial reoffering
price to the public of a substantial
amount of each maturity of the Bonds.
All provisions of the bid form and
Preliminary Official Statement (as
hereinafter defined) are incorporated
herein. As set forth in the Preliminary
Official Statement, the Purchaser
agrees by submission of their bid to assist the School Corporation in establishing the issue price of the Bonds
under the terms outlined therein and
shall execute and deliver to the School
Corporation at closing an “issue price”
certificate, together with the supporting
pricing wires or equivalent communications, with such modifications as
may be appropriate or necessary, in
the reasonable judgment of the Purchaser, the School Corporation and Ice

Miller LLP (“Bond Counsel”).
Bidders must comply with the rules of
PARITY® (the “Rules”) in addition to requirements of this Notice. To the extent there is a conflict between the
Rules and this Notice, this Notice shall
control. Bidders may change and submit bids as many times as they wish
during the sale, but they may not withdraw a submitted bid. The last bid submitted by a bidder prior to the deadline
for the receipt of bids will be compared
to all other final bids to determine the
winning bid. During the sale, no bidder
will see any other bidder’s bid, nor will
they see the status of their bid relative
to other bids (e.g., whether their bid is
a leading bid).
It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the
Bonds, but neither the failure to print
such numbers on any Bond nor any
error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by the
successful bidder therefor to accept
delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its proposal.
No CUSIP identification number shall
be deemed to be a part of any Bond or
a part of the contract evidenced
thereby and no liability shall hereafter
attach to the School Corporation or any
of its officers or agents because of or
on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of
CUSIP identification numbers on the
Bonds shall be paid for by the School
Corporation; provided, however, that
the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for
the assignment of said numbers shall
be the responsibility of and shall be
paid for by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will also be responsible for any
other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds.
The approving opinion of Bond
Counsel, together with a transcript of
the proceedings relating to the issuance of the Bonds and closing papers in the usual form showing no
litigation questioning the validity of the
Bonds, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the
School Corporation.
The Bonds are being issued for the
purpose of renovation of and improvements to school facilities, including
equipment, vehicles, technology and
site improvements, and will be direct
obligations of the School Corporation
payable out of ad valorem taxes to be
collected on the taxable property within
the School Corporation; however, the
School Corporation’s collection of the
levy may be limited by operation of I.C.
6-1.1-20.6, which provides taxpayers
with tax credits for property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain
percentages of the gross assessed
value of that property. The School Corporation is required by law to fully fund
the payment of debt service on the
Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay
the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due
to the application of such tax credits.
The School Corporation may not be
able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this short fall.
The School Corporation is a school
corporation organized pursuant to the
provisions of I.C. 20-23, and the Bonds

will not be “private activity bonds” as
defined in Section 141 of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986.
The Bonds constitute an indebtedness only of the School Corporation.
Interest on the Bonds is exempt from
all income taxation in Indiana. In the
opinion of Bond Counsel, under the existing federal statutes, decisions, regulations and rulings, the interest on the
Bonds is excludable from gross income for purposes of federal income
taxation.
The School Corporation has prepared a preliminary official statement
(the “Preliminary Official Statement”)
relating to the Bonds which it has
deemed nearly final. A copy of the Preliminary Official Statement may be obtained from the School Corporation’s
financial advisor, H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants,
LLP, 112 IronWorks Avenue, Suite C,
Mishawaka, Indiana 46544. Within
seven (7) business days of the sale,
the School Corporation will provide the
successful bidder with up to 5 copies
of the Final Official Statement (the
“Final Official Statement”) at the
School Corporation’s expense. Additional copies, at the Purchaser’s expense, must be requested within five
(5) business days of the sale. Inquiries
concerning matters contained in the
Preliminary Official Statement must be
made and pricing and other information necessary to complete the Final
Official Statement must be submitted
by the Purchaser within two (2) business days following the sale to be included in the Final Official Statement.
The School Corporation has agreed
to enter into a master continuing disclosure undertaking (the “Master
Agreement”) in order to permit the Purchaser to comply with the SEC Rule
15(c)2-12, as amended to the date
hereof (the “SEC Rule”). A copy of the
Master Agreement is available from the
School Corporation or financial advisor
at the addresses below.
The School Corporation has further
agreed to comply with the Purchaser’s
reasonable requests to provide or disclose information and make appropriate filings which may be required in
order for such purchaser to comply
with the SEC Rule.
Further information relative to said
issue and a copy of the Preliminary Official Statement may be obtained upon
application to H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants,
LLP, 112 IronWorks Avenue, Suite C,
Mishawaka, Indiana 46544, financial
