CHS to offer $1.09B of senior secured notes

Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems plans to offer $1.09 billion worth of senior secured notes to generate capital to repay outstanding bonds.

The for-profit healthcare operator will offer investors senior secured notes due in 2031. The proceeds will be used to help redeem all of its outstanding 8.625 percent senior secured notes that are due in 2024. 

This is the second bond offering announced by CHS in January. CHS launched and priced a $1.78 billion high-yield bond Jan. 19. Those bonds are 6.88 percent junior-priority secured notes due in 2029. The proceeds from the bonds will be used to pay back $1.77 billion of 9.88 percent junior-priority secured notes that matured in 2023.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the bond markets have performed well, according to investment service firm Charles Scwab.
