BroadStreet Partners℠ Refinances Its Bank Facility and Receives Moody’s and S&P Ratings

We frequently describe how BroadStreet℠ offers a unique co-ownership approach that helps our independent insurance agency partners achieve their strategic growth plans. Over the last 5 years our partners’ compound annualized revenue growth rate has been 32%, which is the result of both successful organic growth and growth via acquisition.

One of the most important advantages of the BroadStreet℠ approach is that our partners have access to a stable and reliable source of capital that they can use to fund acquisitions in their local and regional markets. This funding source primarily stems from our $510 million bank facility.

On November 8, 2016, BroadStreet℠ took advantage of a favorable credit environment to refinance our facility in order to enhance our efficiency and flexibility as a source of capital for our partners.

During the refinance process, BroadStreet℠ received a rating from Moody’s (B2 Rating, with a Stable outlook) and from S&P (B+ Rating, also with a stable outlook). These ratings are higher than many of our peers which validates our conservative approach to financial management and our strong, stable capital base. Our long-term financial stability, which stems from the success and capabilities of our partners, continues to set us apart from many of our peers.
