A not-for-profit CCRC in Lakeland, Florida is now able to further its mission and strategic plans thanks to $32.8 million in bond financing placed by Ziegler. Approximately $18 million of the community’s outstanding Series 2008 bonds had become callable, and the property also wanted to finance about $17.4 million in future capital expenditures. So, working with the not-for-profit client for the first time, Ziegler stepped in to secure a low interest rate and reduce their annual debt service.
