On May 29, Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions reached financial close on a $104-million Texas A&M University student accommodation project under a 32-year ground lease with the state Board of Regents. Assured Guaranty wrapped two-thirds of the debt, which was issued by a tax-exempt conduit as a BBB- credit priced at a low 96-bps spread against Municipal Market Data (MMD).
The largest bond tranche in the series ($35.3 million) has a maturity of 4/1/2046 and yield 4.22%. Balfour Beatty Construction is the design-build partner. O&M is subcontracted to Texas A&M by the nonprofit conduit.
