TOWN OF MADISON, CONNECTICUT

PRESS RELEASE

December 7, 2023 - On Thursday, December 7th the Town of Madison sold $10,500,000 in 20-year bonds and $30,000,000 in one-year bond anticipation notes through a competitive bid process.  The bonds were purchased by FHN Financial Capital Markets at an effective interest rate of 3.322%.  The Town received a total of fourteen (14) binds on the bonds with rates ranging from 3.322% to 3.706%.  The notes were purchased by Jefferies LLC at an effective interest rate of 3.213%.  The Town received a total of six (6) bids on the notes with rates ranging from 3.213% to 3.369%. 

According to the Town’s municipal advisor, Munistat Services, Inc., the Town’s debt is attractive to municipal bond investors because of the Town’s superior bond rating and strong reputation in the market.  

In connection with the sale, Moody’s Investors Service affirmed the Town’s “Aaa” long-term bond rating and applied the same rating to the new bonds.  Moody’s gave the notes its highest short-term rating, “Moody’s Investment Grade 1 or MIG 1”.  In its rating report, Moody’s described the Town as having “a strong suburban economy anchored by very high resident income, well above average home values”.  Moody’s listed the Town’s location, strong resident wealth, consistent financial operations and low long-term liabilities and fixed costs, as credit strengths.  

Proceeds of the bonds will be used to finance the Town’s new elementary school.  Proceeds of the notes will be used to finance the new elementary school and the renovation of the former Academy school to a Community Center.  The bonds and the notes are the second installment of a series of debt issuances planned for those projects over the next four to five years.

The Town was assisted in the sale by Munistat Services, Inc. of Madison as municipal advisor and Shipman & Goodwin of Hartford as bond counsel.
