The Port of Corpus Christi has raised $216.2m from the sale of Senior Lien Revenue Bonds. These bonds will be used for both the deepening and widening of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel as well as upcoming capital projects within the Port.
“We are pleased with the level of interest the institutional investment community demonstrated for both series of our bonds.” said Sean Strawbridge, Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Corpus Christi. “This round of funding will help the Port of Corpus Christi further progress our ambitious yet achievable capital investment program designed to increase exports of US produced energy to our allies and trading partners around the world.”
San Patricio County Port Commissioner Wes Hoskins, Chairman of the Port Commission’s Capital Finance Committee, which advocated strongly for the capital raise, joined Strawbridge in New York for the sale.
The Port’s Senior Lien Revenue Bond 2018 Series pricing follows strong ratings reiterations received from both Moody’s Investors Service and S&P Global Ratings. Moody’s assigned an A1 Rating to the Port’s newly issued debt, while upgrading the Port’s existing debt from A1 to Aa3. S&P assigned a rating of A+ to the Port’s newly issued debt, while reaffirming the same rating for the existing debt.
