CHICAGO, July 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the $16,185,000 Series 2019 financing for the Trinity Classical Academy Project. Proceeds from the Series 2019 Bonds, were used to purchase the nine-acre site and 48,000 square foot building, fund a debt service reserve, and costs of issuance.
Trinity Classical Academy is a private Christian School, located in Santa Clarita, California. They began operations in 2001, and in the ensuing years expanded to a full transitional kindergarten to grade 12 school. The School utilizes a classical education model, designed to prepare students for college. Since inception, Trinity has graduated seven classes. 100% of those students have been accepted to a four-year college or university, validating the strong academic model at the School.
As the School grew in size, so did the need for facilities. For many years Trinity leased space from a local church in Santa Clarita. As the space needs became greater, it made sense for Trinity to explore purchasing their own site. That decision led to purchase negotiations between Trinity and the church they were leasing from. Ultimately a purchase contract was agreed upon.
"The Ziegler team went above and beyond expectations in helping Trinity purchase our property. We have a permanent home for our students because of their incredible efforts," noted Liz Caddow, Founder & Executive Director for Trinity Classical Academy.
John Brooks, Chief Financial Officer added, "The Ziegler Team made a very complicated process flow very smoothly and they were able to provide answers to all of our questions."
"Throughout this process Ziegler had been engaged to underwrite any needed financing," explained Scott Rolfs, managing director and head of Ziegler's charter school & K-12 investment banking practice. "The Ziegler team worked with Trinity to help shape their credit for the bond market. The financing was delayed a few months as needed municipal approvals were obtained related to the purchase. The delay proved to be helpful as Trinity was able to enter the bond market during a very advantageous time."
