Oak Ridge, N.J. - April 6, 2021 - Lakeland Bank was pleased to provide $30,000,000 to finance one of three bond series used to refinance existing debt of the newly formed Obligated Group for Springpoint Senior Living, Inc. This will provide new funds for capital improvements across several of their campuses. Springpoint was formed in 1916 and today serves as one of the largest nonprofit providers of senior housing and care services with more than 27 communities in New Jersey and Delaware. Lakeland was one of two lenders working in tandem with the active public finance market to secure the $200MM total financing.
'Lakeland proved to be a valuable partner in completing our transaction for a combined $200MM of which we placed $115MM in fixed-rate tax-exempt bonds and $85MM in taxable bonds,' said Garrett Midgett III, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Springpoint. 'The expertise and professionalism of the Lakeland bankers combined with their knowledge of our organization and the senior living industry was paramount to completing a smooth transaction.'
'Lakeland Bank is committed to working alongside the very best care providers in the region and certainly Springpoint is a marquee name in this space. I have worked with this client several times in the past and knew their team would be up for the challenge in coordinating a financing effort of this size and scope,' said Ron Krauskopf, Senior Vice President of Healthcare Lending. 'Lakeland looks forward to forging new relationships with organizations that do so much for the seniors in our communities.'
