Hannon Armstrong (HASI) Completes $100,000,000 Asset-Backed Securitization of 2.79% Sustainable Yield BondsTM

ANNAPOLIS, MD. – December 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. ("Hannon Armstrong", “HASI” or the "Company;" NYSE: HASI) today announced the sale of $100,000,000 of its first series of asset-backed Sustainable Yield BondsTM (HASI SYBs).

"HASI continues to find new ways to finance sustainable infrastructure and we are delighted to have closed this fixed-rate transaction as part of our strategy to manage our interest rate exposure," said President and CEO Jeffrey Eckel. The transaction securitizes the cash flows generated by over 100 individual wind, solar and energy efficiency installations, all with investment grade obligors.

"This issuance represents an innovation in sustainable finance, as investors in these and future HASI SYB bonds benefit from a quantitative assessment of the greenhouse gas impact of each Series of HASI SYBs, measured in metric tons per $1,000 of par value,” continued Eckel. “For example, the assets underlying Series 2013-1 are estimated to reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by 0.61 metric tons per $1,000 bond.”

“While not all ‘green bonds’ have a direct GHG impact, this rigorous attempt to estimate the GHG impact per bond is a welcome financial tool in the critical task of reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Sean Kidney, CEO of Climate Bonds Initiative, a not-for-profit working to mobilize capital markets to finance climate change solutions.

HASI SYB 2013-1 Highlights

  • $100,000,000 private placement
  • 2.79% coupon
  • December 2019 maturity, secured by approximately $110 million of on-balance sheet assets
  • Over 100 individual infrastructure installations, in over 20 properties
  • Annual estimated reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 61,036 metric tons or 0.61 metric tons per $1,000 of bond value
  • In total the equivalent of taking approximately 12,700 cars off the road

“We expedited this transaction due to strong investor demand and favorable market conditions. This is also an important step toward the advancement of our plan to eventually issue publicly rated and traded debt and thus facilitate additional investment opportunities to invest in multiple layers of the capital stack supporting sustainable infrastructure,” said Eckel.

Berkeley Lab Report Finds U.S. Energy Service Companies Experiences Steady Growth Despite Recession

Industry could more than double in size from ~$6 billion in 2013 to $11-$15 billion by 2020

Aggregate revenue growth rates for U.S. energy service companies (ESCOs) significantly outpaced U.S. GDP growth during the three-year period 2009 to 2011, according to a new report by researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).
ESCOs primarily use performance-based contracts to provide energy efficiency, renewable and other energy-related services while guaranteeing that installed equipment, controls and other measures will deliver a specified amount of cost and resource savings to the customer.  Private and public sector ESCO customers have relied on performance-based projects for decades to reduce their operating costs and reap significant energy, water, and other savings, using little or no upfront cash.   For context, this industry typically saves customers each year: (1) the equivalent amount of energy consumed by nearly 2 million households; (2) more than 20 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions; and (3) more than $4 billion in utility bills.

According to The President’s 2013 Climate Action Plan, performance-based contracts “drive economic development, utilize private sector innovation, and increase efficiency at minimum costs to the taxpayer, while also providing long-term savings in energy costs.” Performance contracting allows customers pay back the capital and financing costs of the efficiency improvements over time, out of the stream of dollar savings generated by performance-based projects, thus reducing the need to use tax dollars, or other appropriated funds to generate these savings.  Federal, state, and local policies that remove existing barriers and encourage the future use of performance-based contracts will continue to be vital for industry growth into the future.

The research team analyzed the size of the U.S. ESCO industry by market segment, as well as growth projections and trends.  Researchers collected information from thirty-five ESCOs, publicly-available data on ESCO financial performance, and industry experts.

Financing Vehicles, as stated in the Report:
Nineteen ESCOs reported information about project financing in the federal government sector. In aggregate, about 40% of these federal projects used 100% cash, typically in the form ofappropriated funds that were likely allocated as part of the ARRA or military services facility modernization budgets. About 19% of federal projects used leases, most commonly third party financing of capital or operational leases or lease purchase agreements. About 31% of federal projects used other methods of financing, most commonly a type of arrangement unique to the federal sector known as large scale securitization financing for energy assets (Hannon and Armstrong 2013). In this type of arrangement, the ESCO executes two contracts: one with the federal customer to provide guaranteed savings and another with a lender who provides the capital for the project. In this arrangement, a “special purpose entity” carries the liability.

Hannon Armstrong Partners with Johnson Controls to Fund $27 million in Energy Improvements to Louisville City Buildings

Innovative partnership is one of the first in nation for a city government

Annapolis, MD, October 3, 2013 -- Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. ("Hannon Armstrong") (NYSE: HASI), a leading provider of debt and equity financing for sustainable infrastructure projects, announced that it is providing the underlying funding for nearly $27 million in energy efficiency upgrades to government buildings across the city of Louisville, KY.

The city has signed an agreement with Johnson Controls, a global leader in building efficiency, to make various improvements including lighting upgrades and replacement of outdated, inefficient equipment such as chillers and boilers.

Johnson Controls, working with Hannon Armstrong, will pay for the upfront cost of the upgrades. Louisville Metro Government, in turn, will make payments on the project through a performance contract, in which energy savings from the building improvements are guaranteed to pay for the work over 23 years.

"This is one of the most innovative partnerships between Johnson Controls and a city government in the United States," said Louisville Mayor, Greg Fischer.

“This unique approach is a great deal for taxpayers to make much-needed improvements to our many older buildings,” Fischer said. “In addition, this project will make our city government more sustainable and help us significantly cut carbon emissions.”

According to projections, the project will:

  • Reduce yearly carbon emissions by more than 12,000 tons. That’s equivalent to the carbon impact of nearly 26,000 homes;
  • Result in $2 million in energy and operational savings year over year -- a savings that will continue once the payments to Johnson Controls are made in full.

Some of the planned improvements include:

  • New boilers and power systems for City Hall;
  • New chillers and electrical upgrades at the Youth Detention Center, new boilers at Metro Corrections
  • New boiler cooling tower at Public Health and Wellness;
  • New boilers and condensing units at the Southwest Government Center;
  • Numerous electrical and other upgrades at the Louisville Zoo;
  • New HVAC system at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center.

“City government could not afford, on its own, to pay for these upgrades,” Fischer said. “This unique public-private partnership shows what happens when people approach old problems with new ideas and new ways of thinking.”

Maryland Clean Energy Center Financing Program Enables $5.4M Deal to Facilitate Energy and Water Conservation Upgrades at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County / Hannon Armstrong Arranges Financing for Deal on Pro Bono Basis

Annapolis, MD (September 23, 2013) -- The Maryland Clean Energy Center (MCEC) today announced it has closed a $5.4 million Maryland Clean Energy Capital (MCAP) deal to fund lighting, irrigation, and energy management system upgrades at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). NORESCO will serve as the energy service company (ESCO), designing and installing the upgrades, and the Maryland Clean Energy Center is the bond issuer financing the debt. The end result will be energy savings and greater efficiency on the UMBC campus.

Jeffrey Eckel, Chairman of the MCEC Board and President & CEO of Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure said, “We commend the leaders of UMBC for taking advantage of the new MCAP financing program that was created from the vision of Governor Martin O’Malley, without tax-payer support, and allows MCEC to accelerate otherwise stalled capital projects. Through this program, MCEC can foster savings for Maryland institutions, create jobs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

“It is a win-win-win program and a remarkable model for public-private partnerships. To date, both Coppin State University and UMBC have taken advantage of MCAP financing program,” said Katherine Magruder, Executive Director of the Maryland Clean Energy Center. “Our tax exempt financing capabilities are available to municipalities, hospitals, and not-for- profit entities as well as schools and universities in Maryland.”

Randy Clark, senior vice president, NORESCO, added, “NORESCO is honored to enter into a contract to help UMBC achieve its energy efficiency and cost reduction goals. We are also proud to be among the first to develop an energy performance contract under MCEC’s unique financing approach whereby the University benefits from important upgrades to its facilities.”

MCEC is a self-financing driver of clean energy, economic development, energy innovation, and clean tech jobs in the State of Maryland.  Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure (NYSE: HASI), an Annapolis-based energy investor, helped create the MCAP structure and arranged the financing for MCEC on a pro bono basis.

The Sustainable Infrastructure Income Trust

FORBES — June 28, 2013 – Jeffrey Eckel has an investor relations problem.

No, there has not been any scandal involving fudging the books or sweatshop labor. Rather, most investors simply don’t seem to “get” his company.

His company recently went public as a REIT, or Real Estate Investment Trust, and the traditional REIT investor likes the familiar. They invest for income, and for many, a track record of past income and dividends is a must. While Eckel’s company manages $1.8 billion of securitized energy efficient and sustainable infrastructure assets, it has not been able to invest in such assets itself until the funds from its IPO made that possible.

Eckel’s firm is now in the process of investing those IPO proceeds, and he expects the average investment will yield near 5.5%. Using a 2 to 1 leverage ratio, he plans to ramp that up to 7% of the IPO price ($12.50.) This is well above the yields of most other REITs, but given that there are no other REITs which invest in the same asset class, traditionally conservative REIT investors don’t seem to know what to make of it. The stock is currently trading around $11.50, making that 7% yield an even more attractive 7.6%. Eckel’s predicted yield translates to annual earnings (almost all of which will be distributed to shareholders) of around 88 cents a share. The two analysts who have initiated coverage so far are predicting 2014 earnings of $0.84 and $1.08, which makes sense given that Eckel is probably being a bit conservative about his earnings projections in order not to disappoint Wall Street.

Firm Goes Public With Sustainable Infrastructure

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — June 25, 2013 – A local company is banking its long-term prosperity on the next wave of publicly financed infrastructure projects.

Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital Inc. financed a $22.5 million investment for Puerto Rican solar panels and an energy efficient cooling system at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C.

Anne Arundel County’s newest public company profits by financing sustainable infrastructure projects and collecting loan interest. The company estimates those projects will earn a combined $4 million annually for the next 20 years.

The firm went public in April with plans to raise more capital and take on larger projects. Located at the Annapolis Towne Centre in Parole, it has provided nearly $4 billion for the financing of 450 sustainable energy projects around the country since 2000.

“We do financially strong, sound economic projects,” Hannon Armstrong CEO Jeffrey Eckel said. “All of our projects will be either neutral to negative on carbon emissions. We think that a generational defining issue for us is climate change. As a management team and our entire staff has said, `Let’s do some good and make money.”
