Introduction Why has Huntsville been so successful? Is it that we are just lucky or is it something more? Luck has sometimes been described as the confluence of preparation and opportunity. We would propose that our community has been successful because we have positioned ourselves to be lucky! The resources entrusted to the Chamber by our HREGI investors, coupled with the insightful guidance of our public and private sector leadership has resulted in a series of significant wins in the economic development arena and enhancements to our region’s quality of life. This document articulates the success made possible through the resources provided by our HREGI investors, and lays out the path forward for the next phase of the program. Our Chamber is a more dynamic and effective organization due to the unique position we have in the community. We enjoy a healthy partnership with our public sector partners, working to navigate through challenges and exploiting opportunities. A culture has developed where we can work with our partners to craft effective solutions to the issues which need to be addressed. We benefit from a wealth of experience and perspectives – all of which bring value to the discussion. Our community provides fertile ground for leveraging HREGI Investments to realize significant gains. The Chamber engaged the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) to provide an objective analysis of the economic impact of the projects

2016-2017

we announced from 2013-2015. The UAH research team determined the projects announced over the three-year period will result in an increase in the regional GDP of $4.2 billion, the creation of 15,200 operations related jobs, and just under $1 billion a year in additional payroll – a 3,500% return (measured against the increase in GDP) on the $7 million invested in the HREGI program over the last five years. Investors in the HREGI Program entrusted the Chamber with the additional resources with the belief that they would be utilized in a manner that would enhance the economic vitality of the region. The results speak for themselves. When resources are leveraged properly, they yield positive results for our community and the region. The impact of these efforts is a stronger, more vibrant economy, and a higher quality of life. We need your support to ensure that we maintain the momentum we have created. Strong private sector leadership will ensure that the business community plays a proactive role in addressing the issues that will shape our community and region for decades to come. We look forward to working with you to grow our economy, enhance the workforce and education systems, and improve the quality of life of the Huntsville Region. We thank those who have made our success possible and look forward to welcoming new investors!

Huntsville Metro Area Market Report Moody’s Economic Forecast, November 2016

Despite its recent troubles, Huntsville will outperform Alabama and the nation over the coming year, though potential trade disputes threaten goods producers. More high-paying jobs in research, engineering and manufacturing will create positive spillover in retail and housing. Potential new federal defense spending adds upside risk in the outlook for military contractors. HUN’s well-built labor force, which includes a high concentration of mid-career professionals and college-educated residents, will help keep it a step ahead of the state and nation in the coming years.

Economic Impacts of Economic Development Announcements 2013-2015

Introduction Huntsville is a technology-rich city, and a major hub in the North Alabama region. The population growth in this city over the past five years has been about 4.4%. The unemployment rate, currently 5%, is typically below the national and state unemployment rates. Nicknamed “Rocket City” because of its long and significant role with the U.S. space and missile programs, the city has been at the forefront in developing space technology. Huntsville/Madison County serves as the economic center of north Alabama, and relies significantly on the surrounding region for workforce, industry suppliers, shoppers, and resources necessary for industry success. The City of Huntsville in Madison County has successfully attracted new industries into the local area for many years. Several companies have located to this area for the rich resources as well as the highly educated and technical labor force. Economic development is an activity focused on growing jobs for residents, customers for businesses, suppliers for industry, and economic activity for the local economies. The diversity of an industrial base can also be managed through targeted development to maintain a more stable and resilient economy. Typically, economic development success is measured in terms of jobs and capital investment. Annual announcements of new and expanding industry are made by economic development organizations to show the level of success for the past year. However, the realization of the impacts from new and expanding industries normally occurs over several years as plants are built, employees are hired, and operations reach the planned levels. The actual impacts of economic development efforts are multifaceted and may exceed expectations. One of the most important steps in estimating impacts is the selection of the geographic region (county, state, etc.) to be affected by the new project or activity. Expansions of existing operations tend to be completed in less time than the establishment of new operations, which often require new facility investments. A single project may include multiple phases (construction, workforce training and hiring, etc.) over several years to reach announced levels. Each phase may uniquely impact the region depending on the size, scope, and integration with the existing industrial base.

UAH: Economic Impacts – Executive Summary

Economic impacts may be defined in various terms such as jobs, economic activity (output), payroll, and tax generation among other measures. The impacts are typically shown as direct impacts and multiplier impacts. Impacts are spread over the multiple industry sectors in the region and are affected by the extent to which a specific industry sector exists in the region analyzed. Spending (the direct impact) of a specific industry results in production and spending in other industries. The construction, equipment, and operations of an expansion, will result in the production of products and services in related spending (indirect impact). The employees working in the new or expanded operations will use their income to make personal purchases, which will increase spending (induced impact) in other industries not related to their employment. The indirect plus induced effects are combined into the multiplier effect. This impact study was conducted using IMPLAN® software developed by MIG Inc. The Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County provided the data and list of announcements from which this study was performed. Multi-Regional Input Output analysis was conducted where appropriate. The impact region for this analysis is comprised of the Alabama counties of Madison, Limestone, Morgan, Marshall, Jackson and Lincoln County, Tennessee. The major cities for which impact estimates are calculated include Huntsville, Madison, Athens, and Decatur. It is important to note that economic estimates are made possible by defining a set of assumptions for the analysis. Results of this and any economic impact analysis should be viewed in light of the assumptions used2.

Economic Impacts of Economic Development Announcements 2013-2015

Executive Summary The Huntsville Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), one of the Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) in United States, had a 2014 population of 441,086. It ranked as the 118th largest MSA in the U.S1. It is arguably the economic center of north Alabama with business activities easily extending beyond the county of Madison and the state of Alabama. Performing regular analysis of the economic impacts of this community’s economic development announcement activities can provide insight useful to the community, its leaders, and other interested stakeholders. The economic impact of a specified geographic range, which includes the surrounding regions are compiled in this report.

The estimated economic impacts for the combination of economic development projects for 201315 in the region include: • $4.2 billion expansion of the region’s economy • 15,200 operations-related jobs • $989 million in additional annual payroll

The impact region for this study is defined as Madison County and the contiguous counties of Jackson, Limestone, Marshall, Morgan, in Alabama and Lincoln County, Tennessee. The study also analyses the impact on the major cities of Huntsville, Madison, Athens, and Decatur. Economic development announcements by the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County for the years 2013, 2014, and 2015 were used for the analysis.

• $1.46 billion impact from capital investments (building, equipment, etc.)

Economic impact can be defined in various terms such as jobs, economic activity (output), payroll, and tax generation among other measures. The impacts are typically shown through components of direct and multiplier impacts over one or more years. Projects announced include sites in Madison County inside and outside of the corporate limits of Huntsville City and Madison City as well as the City of Huntsville in Limestone County.

• $52 million in net local taxes (sales, property and other taxes)

• 11,300 capital investment related jobs • $567 million in capital investment-related payroll • $128 million increase in net annual taxes generated (employment, state, local) ∏ $30 million in local sales taxes ∏ $21 million in local property taxes ∏ $1 million in other taxes

Impacts by Major Industry Sector

The top twenty-five sectors most impacted by the 2013, 2014, and 2015 economic development project announcements are shown in Table 3 and Table 4. Economic output, and employment effects are shown for each sector. Economic output dollars represent the value of all the potential direct plus multiplier transactions in the industry sectors present in the specified region. Note that the estimated economic impact value should be viewed as the size of the opportunity for the industries in the local region to provide products, services, and workforce to the new project(s). The sector rankings may differ between tables due to the Output-per-Job differences by sector. Note there are additional sectors impacted beyond those listed here. Table
