Lower Colorado River Authority launches new investor relations site

Site offers investors comprehensive information about upcoming LCRA bond sales

Feb. 27, 2019

The Lower Colorado River Authority has joined a new investor relations site to provide investors with an easy way to find information about LCRA's upcoming bond offerings.

The new site at lcrabonds.com, part of the BondLink network, provides investors with documents detailing the credit fundamentals behind LCRA's outstanding bond ratings. Investors can register to receive alerts as financial documents are updated.

"We know investors are busy and able to select from thousands of well-rated governmental offering across the country," said Jim Travis, LCRA chief financial officer. "We are pleased to provide investors this source for the information they need about LCRA bonds.''

LCRA is evaluating the issuance of approximately $370 million of tax-exempt, fixed-rate Transmission Contract Refunding Revenue Bonds. LCRA anticipates the preliminary official statement for the bonds will be available on or about the week of Feb. 25, and that the bonds will be priced and sold on or about the week of March 11, 2019.  LCRA expects the sale of the bonds will be senior managed by Citigroup Global Markets Inc.

Regulators recommend a strong investor relations program for issuers, and academic research shows improved disclosure leads to lower borrowing costs.

"We're proud to partner with LCRA," said Colin MacNaught, co-founder and CEO of BondLink, which powers LCRA's investor relations platform. "Sophisticated issuers like LCRA understand the importance of making it easy for investors to find the information they need. We're excited to help drive additional demand for LCRA's bond programs."
