Fitch announces bond rating updates on 2 CCRCs
Fitch Ratings announced the following bond ratings updates:
- Fitch downgraded the ratings on $29.6 million in series 2013 revenue bonds, and $19.4 million in series 2014A revenue bonds issued by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) on behalf of United Methodist Homes of New Jersey, now doing business as United Methodist Communities, to “BB+” from “BBB-.” The rating outlook was revised from stable to negative.

- Fitch affirmed the “A-” issuer default rating on Maine Life Care Retirement Community, Inc., doing business as Piper Shores. The rating outlook is stable. Key rating drivers include being a destination retirement community with a national sales draw supporting strong demand, an ongoing expansion project, and consistent cash flow offsetting weaker operations.
