Does the Corporation have sufficient legal authorization to support the capital needs of the Project, subject to the conditions set forth in its indenture?
In August 2018, the City Council passed legislation, which was subsequently signed by the Mayor, that authorized an additional $500 million of borrowing capacity for the Corporation. This additional borrowing capacity also benefits from Interest Support Payment as with the rest of the Corporation’s outstanding debt. Of that amount, the Corporation has entered into a Term Loan for $350 million which can be drawn to fund remaining costs of the Project. The Corporation believes, given the City Council action mentioned above, that it does have adequate financing capacity to meet the remaining capital needs of the Project.
