Tentative Schedule Includes $6.71 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 fourth quarter of 2014.

The proposed new issuances total approximately $6.71 billion, including $2.36 billion scheduled for this month, $1.79 billion scheduled for November and $2.56 billion for December. The fourth quarter of anticipated new issuances compares to past planned new issuances of approximately $3.02 billion during the third quarter of 2014 and $4.91 billion during the fourth quarter of 2013.

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 its borrowing programs.

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

  • Dormitory Authority of the State of New York – two bond sales totaling up to $1.25 billion in tax-exempt and/or taxable fixed rate bonds for the month of October, and two bond sales totaling up to $15.9 million in fixed and variable rate tax-exempt bonds for the month of November.

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. The collection and release of this information by the Office of the State Comptroller is not intended as an endorsement of the proposed issuances it contains, many of which will be subject to approval by the Office of the State Comptroller.
