Healthcare tax-exempt municipal volume continues to be light for 2018. Healthcare municipal issuance through May 2018 is down approximately 23% versus the same period last year. (source: Thomson Reuters – SDC Platinum) Lighter issuance is most likely the result of the acceleration of intended 2018 bond issues into late 2017 in light of proposed tax reform and the elimination of tax-exempt advance refundings in 2018. The majority of the issuance of municipal securities in 2018 is for new money projects. However, several large transactions have skewed the data. The top five publically offered transactions accounted for 51% of total issuance during this period.
Healthcare capital market transactions that have come to market have been well received and priced at attractive levels. Still evolving in the market is the refunding of bank direct placement loans with variable rate demand bonds (VRDBs) supported by letters of credit, standby bond purchase agreements or self-liquidity. As more borrowers face interest rate increases with their bank loans due to the corporate tax law’s reduction in corporate income tax to 21% from 35%, we will most likely see an increase in VRDB market volumes. - Chris Tucker, Managing Director
