I just do not need another preferred/baby bond I have to worry about. Pass.
I am waiting to see if we hit a new low in preferred/baby bond arena right now.
The last deal I can remember from Fortress was Florida Brightline (HI speed) train. They were…. GREEN BONDS…. Came out at 7 3/8% tax free. 4.1 discount to FACE.
I ve never heard of such a rate in muni land. Guess fortress didn’t get a lot of respect if they had to pay that much? 9.5 sounds relatively rich compared to that.
What do I know FTAI could be oversubscribed!
In looking at FTAI, keep in mind that they recently spun out their infer structure investments into a separate holding. As suc past numbers need to be adjusted to get a true picture. The aircraft maintenance element of the firm’s present activities will significantly strengthen their overall activity. sc
