The 1998 edition contains a narrative of the company's history and the MEGA deal; an executive summary of the report; the project location, including the city and county; the location of the company's headquarters; the expected total jobs (both direct and indirect) to be created over the life of the deal; the average weekly wage, including the benefit package value as percent of total; the capital investment expected; the estimated net positive state government revenue impact over the life of the MEGA project, showing both the estimated state revenue forgone and the estimated state revenue gained; the projected state personal income generated over the life of each MEGA deal; and the explicit value of the local government's contribution to the MEGA deal through various local government business incentives.
This report stands in contrast to more recent reports which contain only a fraction of the information contained in the 1998 report.
