06/27/2024 11:00 AM

Insured Bonds are Part of a $2.55 Billion Issue

Assured Guaranty Municipal Corp. (AGM)* has, for the second time, insured $800 million of senior Special Facilities Revenue Bonds issued by the New York Transportation Development Corporation on behalf of JFK New Terminal One (JFK NTO), a consortium comprising Ferrovial Airports, JLC Infrastructure, Ullico Infrastructure Fund and Carlyle Group. Following a successful, similar December 2023 bond issuance, the insured bonds were issued on June 27 as part of a $2.55 billion Series 2024 issue of fixed-rate bonds. This increases AGM-insured bonds to an aggregate of $1.6 billion out of the $4.55 billion of bonds issued to date by JFK NTO.

Lorne Potash, Managing Director, Infrastructure Finance, Americas commented, “For the second time in less than seven months, Assured Guaranty’s bond insurance on $800 million of bonds once again helped the issuer achieve a highly successful execution. The 2023 and 2024 insured issues together represent the largest commitment Assured Guaranty has to a single public-private partnership credit. We are the only bond insurer with the experience, scale and financial strength to provide meaningful cost savings for issues of this size and complexity.”

“JFK NTO is the largest public-private partnership transportation project in the United States, and we are pleased to be a part of the team that brought this investment grade and highly essential project to its second successful bond execution,” said Sam Nakhleh, Director, Infrastructure Finance, Americas.

The bonds will be fully amortizing after an initial interest-only period, with a final maturity in 2060. AGM insured $14,290,000 of serial bonds due 2039; $32,715,000 of serial bonds due 2042; $145,000,000 of term bonds due 2049; $184,845,000 and $48,150,000 of term bonds due in 2054; and $375,000,000 of term bonds due 2060.

BofA Securities and Loop Capital Markets served as co-bookrunners and Barclays as co-senior manager. Hogan Lovells acted as legal advisor to AGM.
