CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 19, 2021
Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce it served as the Underwriter for Springpoint Senior Living in its refunding of outstanding debt for its Obligated Group.
Springpoint Senior Living (Springpoint) is a regional senior living system based in NJ, originally founded in 1916 as the Presbyterian Home of the Synod of New Jersey, eventually changing its name to Springpoint Senior Living in 2010. Springpoint operates eight Life Plan Communities in New Jersey and Delaware, 19 affordable housing communities, a home care agency and a continuing care at home program.
Springpoint formed a new obligated group for the 2021 refinancing, which consists of Springpoint itself, as well as six of its Life Plan Communities, all located in New Jersey. Prior the 2021 refinancing, Springpoint’s prior 2015 obligated group consisted of Springpoint, three of the Life Plan Communities in NJ, and the Springpoint Foundation. In addition to refinancing all of the outstanding debt of the obligated group members, the refinancing also reimbursed the obligated group for approximately $25 million in recent capital expenditures.
The Series 2021 bonds underwritten by Ziegler consisted of $114,820,000 of fixed rate, tax-exempt bonds, rated “BBB+” by Fitch Ratings. Simultaneous with the bond issuance, Springpoint closed $85,000,000 of taxable bank financings with two regional banks.
Anthony Argondizza, the CEO of Springpoint, stated, “I could not be more pleased with the level of professionalism and support provided by Ziegler and Marathon Capital Strategies as we developed a complex financing structure, while overcoming the many obstacles attributable to the pandemic. Leveraging Ziegler’s and Marathon’s experience and the talented bankers at Ziegler, the outcome exceeded expectations.”
