Project Overview

NCH sought financing for certain capital projects and to refund its outstanding Series 2011 Bonds.

Financing Overview

In December 2019, Wye River conducted a competitive solicitation for lenders and underwriters. NCH received highly competitive proposals and selected a lender offering very favorable structures and pricing. The new money needs were structured as a draw-down tax-exempt bond with a fully amortizing 15 year term. The Series 2011 Bonds will be refunded in 2021 with a tax-exempt bond. The terms of the refunding have been agreed upon through a forward delivery agreement.
