Port Canaveral $42M Financing for Facilities Expansion

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

The Canaveral Port Authority closed on a $42m loan from PNC Financial Services Group to accelerate the development of a new cruise terminal and cargo facilities. The 3.14 percent interest rate loan has a term of 13 years and with the Port’s existing debt, will enable Port Canaveral to be debt free in 2023. 
 
During its December Board meeting, the Commission voted unanimously to supplement its own revenues for the $100m expansion program in order to move forward to take advantage of low construction costs.
 
“Because of our Commission’s action, we were able to close this loan quickly to secure very advantageous terms to support future development of the Port,” said Joe Matheny, Vice Chairman of the Canaveral Port Authority Commission.”
