News Release: H2C Advises John Muir Health on Issuance of Series 2018A Fixed-Rate Bonds

Hammond Hanlon Camp LLC (“H2C”), a healthcare-focused investment banking firm, through its wholly-owned subsidiary H2C Securities Inc. (“H2C”), served as the exclusive financial advisor to John Muir Health (“JMH”), based in Walnut Creek, Calif., in connection with the issuance of $87.025 million in Series 2018A tax-exempt, fixed-rate bonds.

JMH retained H2C to advance refund its Series 2009A bonds with a bridge loan. In May 2018, JMH issued $87.025 million in Series 2018A bonds to refinance the bridge loan. H2C led the transaction, formulating the plan of finance and developing the themes for the rating agency presentation.

The health system’s Series 2018A bonds priced attractively relative to other healthcare “A”-rated transactions. The Series 2018A bonds have an average life of 37.0 years and an all-in true interest cost of 4.27 percent.

“Our efforts in refinancing the bridge loan with long-term financing-including extensive preparation and marketing of the bonds–achieved attractive yields for John Muir Health,” said Elaine Yao, managing director for H2C. “H2C is extremely pleased to have assisted JMH with the Series 2018A transaction.”
