Tentative Schedule Includes $6.51 Billion of New Debt Sales

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced a tentative schedule for the planned sale of obligations for the state, New York City, and their major public authorities during the third quarter of 2016.

The proposed new issuances total approximately $6.51 billion, including $2.19 billion scheduled for this month, $1.77 billion scheduled for August and $2.55 billion scheduled for September. The anticipated new issuances in the third quarter compare to past planned new issuances of approximately $3.61 billion during the second quarter of 2016, and $1.65 billion during the third quarter of 2015.

The State Comptroller's office chairs the Securities Coordinating Committee which was created by Gubernatorial Executive Order primarily to coordinate the borrowing activities of the state, New York City and their respective public authorities. All borrowings are scheduled at the request of the issuer and done pursuant to their borrowing programs.

The third quarter new money borrowings are expected to include the following:

The schedule will be modified and updated in response to changes in program needs and market conditions. It is also contingent upon execution of all project approvals required by law. The schedule is released by the committee to assist participants in the municipal bond market. A new schedule is released every quarter and updated as necessary.
