year creating 3,695 jobs from 25 companies. As a reference, the Texas Workforce Commission reports that the San Antonio area economy had a net increase of 22,000 nonfarm jobs in 2012. Additions of several national operations and data centers underline San Antonio’s emerging strength as a national support hub. Other firms are diversified across a variety of several industries, including oil and gas firms that continue to relocate to provide services to the Eagle Ford Shale. Business spending ultimately spreads to all industries when indirect supplier spending and induced consumer spending are taken into account. The pie chart on the next page shows how 3,695 new jobs translates into a total of 7,053 jobs in diversified sectors when multiplier effects are taken into account.

The San Antonio Economic Development Foundation is fulfilling its purpose to grow and diversify the San Antonio economy by recruiting new industry and the major investments and job creation that comes with it. The $1 billion in annual outputs and $693 million from capital investments represents a substantial return on investment for member’s support of the Economic Development Foundation.

Direct operations expenses of $618.2 million by these new and expanding firms translates into secondary spending by suppliers and employees. These indirect and induced effects, along with estimated employment, payroll, personal income, sales, and tax revenues, are calculated by IMPLAN based on Texas benchmark data provided primarily by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Forecasts for the first year of full operations for these 25 firms translates into $1.0 billion in total economic impact and 7,053 total jobs. Subsequent years impacts are subject to industry trends, but future years of operations will likely exceed this annual impact. Capital investments represent new constructions and improvements in plant and equipment for one year. The $397 million in capital outlays translates into $693 million in economic impact and 6,299 jobs, mostly in the construction industry.

Retail sales in millions of dollars:
To exemplify how secondary effects of new industry benefit the economy, we estimated the income effects on home and vehicle sales over five years. Increased sales due to these 2012 industry locations are estimated to be an additional 499 homes and 2,273 vehicles the first year, plus 229 homes and 1,040 cars per year in the near future. After five years of operations, estimated sales of 1,413 homes and 6,434 cars/trucks are expected. All calculations are based on the assumption that all companies reach their projected operating capacity by 2012.
