FTN Financial Capital Markets Announces Expanded Municipal Bond Efforts

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTN Financial Capital Markets, a division of First Tennessee Bank NA, announces its continued expansion in the general market municipal bond sector with the addition of a public finance department.

With a hundred-year history of service in the municipal bond business, FTN Financial began expanding its role with the addition of a dedicated municipal sales group in 2012. The establishment of the public finance department serves to complement FTN Financial's municipal trading and competitive underwriting capabilities.

To date, offices have been opened in San Antonio and Austin, Texas, as part of this expansion. Rogelio Rodriguez (San Antonio) and Don Henderson (Austin), with a combined experience of over forty years in Texas public finance, joined FTN Financial's public finance team and they will focus on negotiated municipal bond transactions. FTN Financial has already achieved significant results in this arena, participating in four transactions in January, including the solely-underwritten $88 million La Joya Independent School District refunding issue in Texas.

"True to our model, we expanded our trading and underwriting last year. The establishment of this public finance group was the next logical step. We plan to increase our commitment to the general market municipal platform and expand our public finance department, expecting significant market penetration," said Mike Allen, FTN Financial's Municipal Products Manager.

FTN Financial has also added Josh Mulholland to its dedicated Municipal Bond Sales team. Josh brings over 20 years of institutional municipal sales experience to FTN Financial. "We continue to attract the finest sales talent in the industry," says Rod Turner, Director of Sales at FTN Financial.

"Our objective is to provide real value to our customers – both issuers and investors alike – by bringing quality products to the market with our unique combination of vast distribution and available capital to deploy," says Michael E. Kisber, President of FTN Financial. "We're very excited with the level of enthusiasm and acceptance in the market that we have experienced with this strategic initiative."
