Dallas-based NexBank Capital has been working to raise $238 million in debt and equity since 2016. The company was able to close $54 million in a private note offering to institutional and high net worth investors. This financial services company has plans to use this money for general operational purposes. This private note offering closed in September 2017 and was made possible by the sole placement agent Sandler O’Neill & Partners, L.P.
The notes were subordinate fixed-to-floating rate notes with a maturity date of September 30, 2027. According to banktracker, the fixed interest rate on these notes is 6.375 percent for the first five years, then these notes switch to a floating rate. The Kroll Bond Rating Agency gave these notes an investment grade rating of BBB-, which means these notes have a moderate amount of risk of loss depending on the level of stress during credit-related events.
