Parkview Health Forward Delivery

Hawkins served as underwriter’s counsel in connection with the issuance by the Indiana Finance Authority of approximately $170 million of bonds, on behalf of Parkview Health.  The four offerings were issued for new money and refunding purposes and consisted of tax-exempt, taxable, fixed rate and floating rate bonds.  Three of the offerings were structured on a current delivery basis.  Utilizing a forward delivery structure for the fourth offering, Parkview Health was able to secure savings by pricing the bonds in October, with settlement a few months later. This allowed the borrower to currently refund a bond issue that would have otherwise been prohibited under current federal tax law. 

Forward delivery bonds present an alternative to tax-exempt advance refundings, which were eliminated by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Attorneys at Hawkins have extensive experience navigating the unique disclosure issues presented by a forward delivery transaction.
