INDEPENDENT AUDITORS REPORT
           Board of Directors New Hampshire Municipal Bond Bank   We have audited the accompanying basic financial statements, consisting of the State Guaranteed Fund Group, Non-State Guaranteed Fund Group, Pinkerton Academy Fund Group and Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Fund Group, of New Hampshire Municipal Bond Bank as of and for the year ended June 30, 2006, as listed in the accompanying table of contents. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Bond Banks management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.  We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.  In our opinion, the basic financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of New Hampshire Municipal Bond Bank at June 30, 2006, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.  The Managements Discussion and Analysis on pages 2  5 is not a required part of the basic financial statements, but is supplementary information required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The supplementary information is the responsibility of the Bond Banks management. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the supplementary information. However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it.      Manchester, New Hampshire August 11, 2006

NEW HAMPSHIRE MUNICIPAL BOND BANK  MANAGEMENTS DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS  June 30, 2006
  As financial management of the New Hampshire Municipal Bond Bank (the Bond Bank), we offer readers of these financial statements this narrative, overview and analysis of the financial activities of the Bond Bank for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006. This discussion and analysis is designed to assist the reader in focusing on the significant financial issues and activities of the Bond Bank and to identify any significant changes in financial position. We encourage readers to consider the information presented here in conjunction with the basic financial statements as a whole.  Financial Highlights   Bank were $41,603,880 for fiscal year 2006, a decrease of $2,315,713Revenues for the Bond or 5.27% below fiscal year 2005. This decrease was caused primarily by the net decrease in the fair value of investments between fiscal year 2005 and 2006. Investments are recorded at fair value to comply with GASB rules. The Bond Bank generally holds investments until maturity to pay reserve fund bonds as they become due, so fluctuations in the fair value of the investments have a minimal long-term effect.   AtBond Bank decreased $3,387,018 in fiscal year 2006. June 30, 2006,Fund equity of the the Bond Bank had fund equity of $15,582,884, a decrease of 17.85% from the prior year.  The Bond Banks bonds outstanding at June 30, 2006 of $922,012,598 represent a net increase of $57,556,819 from the balance at June 30, 2005. This increase was primarily due to the net result of issuing three new series of bonds totaling $135,970,000, less the scheduled 2006 debt service principal payments of $79,419,109. The Bond Bank provided loans to local governmental units during fiscal year 2006 totaling  $126,890,910 which was a 33.22% increase from the loans provided in fiscal year 2005.  Overview of the Bond Bank  The Bond Bank was created in 1977 by an Act of the New Hampshire Legislature, RSA:35-A, is a public body corporate and politic and is constituted as an instrumentality exercising public and essential governmental functions of the State. The Bond Bank was established to issue bonds for the purpose, among other things, of providing funds to enable it to lend money to counties, cities, towns, school districts or other districts (the governmental units) within the State of New Hampshire. The provision of funds is accomplished by the direct purchase from such governmental units of their bonds, notes or evidence of debt payable from taxes, charges for services or assessments.  As the result of the Bond Bank issuing tax-exempt debt, it is required to prepare arbitrage rebate calculations for each series of bonds outstanding and remit payment to the Internal Revenue Service every five years. The Bond Banks policy is to prepare and review the calculations annually for financial statement purposes. The Bond Bank has hired an outside firm to calculate arbitrage rebate liability and payments.

Since its inception, the Bond Bank issued bonds for its non guaranteed program pursuant to a General Resolution adopted on December 1, 1978, as amended from time to time (the 1978 Resolution). Over the years, the 1978 Resolution had grown increasingly obsolete. On July 14, 2005, the Bond Bank adopted a new General Resolution (the 2005 Resolution). While substantially similar to the 1978 Resolution, the 2005 Resolution contains a number of improvements, including a flexible reserve fund sizing requirement, wholesale changes in permitted investments, the ability to meet its reserve fund requirement with surety bond policies and other credit facilities, and a streamlined approach to calling bonds for early redemption. In managements view, the 2005 Resolution will enhance the Bond Banks ability to market its bonds and streamline the administration of its program. Bonds issued under the 2005 Resolution are separately secured from all other bonds of the Bond Bank, including those issued under the 1978 Resolution. The adoption of the 2005 Resolution is not expected to result in any substantive change to the Bond Banks overall program.  The Bond Bank has issued two series of bonds under the terms of the 2005 Resolution, $47,505,000 of 2005 Series D Bonds, delivered on July 21, 2005 and $53,630,000 of 2006 A Bonds, delivered July 20, 2006.  Overview of the Financial Statements  This discussion and analysis is intended to serve as an introduction to the Bond Banks financial statements, which is comprised of the basic financial statements and the notes to the financial statements. Since the Bond Bank operates under four separate bond resolutions, the financial statements reflect individual fund activity.  Basic Financial Statements  The basic financial statements are designed to provide readers with a broad overview of the Bond Banks finances, in a manner similar to a private-sector business.  The financial statements present information on all of the Bond Banks assets and liabilities, with the difference between the two reported as fund equity. Over time, increases or decreases in fund equity may serve as a useful indicator of whether the financial position of the Bond Bank is improving or deteriorating. Fund equity increases when revenues exceed expenses. Increases to assets without a corresponding increase to liabilities, result in increased fund equity, which may indicate an improved financial position.  The statements of revenues, expenses, and changes in fund equity present information showing how the Bond Banks fund equity changed during the fiscal year. Changes in fund equity are generally reported as soon as the underlying event occurs, regardless of timing of related cash flows. Thus, revenues and expenses are reported in this statement for some items that will only result in cash flows in future periods.  Notes to the Financial Statements  The notes to the financial statements provide additional information that is essential to a full understanding of the data provided in the basic financial statements.  Financial Analysis  Fund equity may serve, over time, as a useful indicator of a governments financial position. In the case of the Bond Bank, assets exceeded liabilities by $15,582,884 at June 30, 2006. This represents a decrease of $3,387,018 or 17.85% from the previous fiscal year. Most of this decrease is attributable to the fluctuations in the market value of investments in 2006 as compared to 2005. By far, the largest portion of the Bond Banks fund equity is its investment in loans to governmental units plus bond proceeds remaining in trust investments, less any related debt used to acquire those assets.
