At 2:15 p.m., the Chairman asked the Board to consider a nonpublic session.  The purpose of the nonpublic session was for the following reason:

Consideration of applications by the Business Finance Authority under RSA 162-A:7-10 and RSA 162-A:13, where consideration of confidential, commercial, or financial information that is exempt from public disclosure; and matters which if discussed in public, would likely affect adversely the reputation of any person, other than a member of the public body itself.

Following a vote of the Board to enter into a nonpublic session, the minutes of the nonpublic session are hereby recorded.

At 2:17 p.m., Director Henderson made a motion to come out of nonpublic session, seconded by Director Dwyer.

Director Henderson made a motion to seal the minutes of the nonpublic session because it is determined that divulgence of the information likely would affect adversely the reputation of any person other than a member of the public body itself, or render the proposed action ineffective.

Upon second made by Director Dwyer, the following named directors voted:

Aye: Dick Anagnost, Stephen Duprey, Jeffrey Hayes, Daniel Henderson, Catherine Provencher, Matthew Benson and Bill Dwyer.  Nay:  None.  Abstain:  None.
