New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced a tentative schedule for the planned bond sales for New York State, New York City and their major public authorities during the fourth quarter of 2021.
The planned sales of $5.05 billion include $3.06 billion of new money and $1.99 billion of refundings and reofferings as follows:
- $4.08 billion scheduled for October, of which $2.26 billion is for new money and $1.82 billion for refunding or reoffering purposes;
- $967 million scheduled for November, of which $796 million is for new money purposes and $171 million is for refunding purposes; and
- no issuances have been scheduled for the month of December at this time.
The anticipated sales in the fourth quarter compare to past planned sales of $6.75 billion during the third quarter of 2021, and $6.28 billion during the fourth quarter of 2020.
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.
A new schedule is released every quarter and updated as necessary. The schedule is released by the committee to assist participants in the municipal bond market. It is contingent upon execution of all project approvals required by law. 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.
The prospective fourth quarter calendar includes anticipated bond sales by the following issuers: the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, the Environmental Facilities Corp, Empire State Development, the Hudson Yards Infrastructure Corporation, New York City Housing Development Corporation, New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority, New York Liberty Development Corporation, the State of New York Mortgage Agency, and the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority.
