News Releases: H2C Advises Tower Health on $455.3 Million Bond Financing


NEW YORK — June 4, 2020 — Hammond Hanlon Camp LLC (“H2C”), a healthcare-focused strategic advisory and investment banking firm, through its wholly owned subsidiary, H2C Securities Inc. (“H2C”), served as the exclusive financial advisor to Tower Health (“Tower”) in the issuance of $455.3 million in bonds. The transaction consisted of $44.7 million in tax-exempt, fixed-rate bonds (Series 2020A), $64.6 million in five-year tax-exempt put bonds (Series 2020B-1), $82.5 million in seven-year tax-exempt put bonds (Series 2020B-2), $72.9 million in 10-year tax-exempt put bonds (Series 2020B-3), and $190.7 million in taxable, fixed-rate bonds (Series 2020 Taxable) (collectively, the “Bonds”).

H2C created a plan of finance to:

  • Refund $275 million of variable-rate bank debt that had mandatory tenders in the next four years
  • Refund $44.7 million of Series 2009A-3 bonds that were currently callable
  • Fund the purchase of St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children
  • Refund $100 million of its lines of credit
  • Terminate its fixed payer swaps

H2C’s plan of finance restructured Tower’s debt profile. The 2020 bonds had all-in true interest cost of 3.28 percent and an average life of 16.7 years. H2C also saved Tower 9 bps with its idea to include a non-callable structure for the serial bonds maturing in 11 and 12 years.

“H2C focused on leading a smooth and timely process, which resulted in deal completion just 15 weeks after deal kickoff,” said Elaine Yao, Managing Director, H2C. “Given the transaction closed just one month before the COVID disruption in the capital markets, timeliness was paramount. We are honored to continue to serve as Tower’s financial advisor and assist the System in its mission to provide high-quality care to communities across southeastern Pennsylvania.”
