Patterson Park Public Charter School Issue
Wye River Group Served as Patterson Park’s Independent Financial Advisor for this Transaction.
Refinancing of its outstanding Series 2010 Bonds issued by MHHEFA.
In July 2019, Wye River conducted a competitive solicitation for tax-exempt financing to currently refund the Patterson Park’s outstanding Series 2010 Bonds. PPPCS received 9 competitive proposals and ultimately decided to pursue a bank-based financing with a lender that provided a conventional fixed rate in the low 3% neighborhood. The financing closed on schedule in late-October and the 2010 Bonds will be redeemed in mid-November.
As a result of this financing, PPPCS will realize over $200,000 of annual debt service savings which will enable the School to build its liquidity reserves, invest in its programs and services, and position itself for future growth.
