August 10, 2021
Cain Brothers served as the Sole Manager in the public issuance of $41,000,000 of tax-exempt fixed rate revenue bonds on behalf of Washoe Barton Medical Clinic (d/b/a Carson Valley Medical Center). The Series 2021A Bonds will be used to finance a $40.1 million Project, refinance all existing debt, fund a debt service reserve fund, and pay costs of issuance. The expansion and renovation Project will 1) modernize and optimize CVMC’s care and delivery system by converting its 23 semi-private beds to 25 private rooms, 2) increase emergency room bed capacity, 3) expand surgery facilities and specialized procedure rooms, and 4) renovate existing rehabilitation space and the central utility plant. Cain Brothers guided CVMC through its first public rating process which ultimately resulted in a “BB+” rating from Standard & Poor’s with a stable outlook. CVMC and Cain Brothers conducted extensive investor outreach including a recorded presentation and several one-one-one conference calls with investors. The Series 2021A bonds received over $461 million in orders from 17 individual investor accounts, ultimately resulting in a final True Interest Cost of 2.84%.
