Idaho Central Issues $80 Million in Subordinated Debt, ‘One of the Largest’ Ever

Dec. 8, 2023 — The private placement increases its net worth ratio, which has lagged peers. Idaho Central Credit Union is bolstering its net worth through $80 million in subordinated debt issued Nov. 7. The Luse Gorman law firm of Washington, D.C., which served as legal counsel to Idaho Central in the offering, said the private placement of $80.0 million of subordinated notes was “one of the largest single issuances of subordinated debt by a credit union.” It follows a $100 million issue announced in February by GreenState Credit Union of North Liberty, Iowa ($11.2 billion in assets, 447,703 members as of Sept. 30) to support minority homeownership.
