Kaufman Hall Continues to Lead Healthcare Industry in Advising New Debt Transactions

Kaufman Hall once again ranks as the No. 1 financial advisor in the country in new healthcare debt for both long-term municipal public offerings and private placements. According to Thomson Reuters’ year-end Municipal Market Analysis, Kaufman Hall advised on the issuance of more new long-term municipal healthcare debt than any other firm in 2016, supporting nearly $10 billion in debt transactions on behalf of client hospitals and health systems.

Kaufman Hall ranked first by advising $8.55 billion in tax-exempt debt issues through 47 new healthcare long-term transactions exclusive of private issues, representing a 23 percent share of activity in this debt market. The firm also advised $1.43 billion in private long-term municipal issues through 19 transactions solely to healthcare providers.

Since 2006, the firm has advised nearly 950 long-term municipal public offerings and private placements totaling more than $100 billion in debt transactions, giving Kaufman Hall more transaction experience than any other firm in the not–for–profit healthcare market.

“Access to capital remains a key priority for healthcare providers as they work to meet the demands of a rapidly evolving industry,” said Managing Director Eric Jordahl, who leads Kaufman Hall’s Financial Advisory practice. “We are thankful to the many hospitals and health systems who put their trust in Kaufman Hall to help them navigate increasingly complex markets. The breadth and depth of our experience combined with the strength of our analytical resources ensures that each client we advise achieves an optimal financing strategy consistent with their long-term business objectives.”

Kaufman Hall is the only independent financial advisory firm providing services exclusively to borrowers, and not issuing authorities. This allows Kaufman Hall’s consultants to provide completely conflict-free borrowing recommendations and to vigorously advocate for clients’ interests throughout the financing process.
