Though incorporated in Delaware in 1966, Budget Industries was a California-based holding company involved in commercial and consumer financial products, and casualty insurance.

Budget’s Chairman, Charles S. Offer (whose printed signature appears on this piece), was the victim of a kidnapping on August 10, 1971. Offer was struck on the head in front of his Hollywood home and placed in a canvas bag and put in the trunk of his abductor’s car. When the kidnappers later opened the trunk to check on Offer, he purposely laid motionless to give the impression he was dead. The kidnappers apparently bought the charade, and fled on foot. Offer was treated at a local hospital for bumps and scrapes and was released.
