The Bonds are being issued for the purpose of financing the con-
struction, renovation and equipping of improvements to the University of
Kentucky Hospital, including: (i) constructing and equipping a four-story
addition to house replacement surgical facilities, clinical laboratories,
emergency services and thirty (30) intensive care beds, (ii) renovating the
central sterile and pharmacy services, (iii) improving the emergency power
systems, fire alarms, heating, ventilation and air conditioning and water
systems, and (iv) constructing a transport tower and an enclosed pedestrian
walkway; all as is more specifically set forth in the Preliminary Official
Statement being used in connection with the offering of the Bonds.
The Bonds are secured by a pledge of the proceeds of the sale of the
Bonds until expended for the authorized purpose, the Net Revenues (as defined
in the Official Statement) and all funds established with the Trustee by and in
accordance with the provisions of the Resolution, including the investments, if
any, of any of such funds, and a paramount charge on all of said Net Revenues
over and ahead of all claims or obligations of any nature against said Net
Revenues arising or incurred after the issuance of the Bonds. The pledge shall
be valid and binding from and after the date of the issuance, sale and delivery
of the Bonds.
The Board has reserved the right to incur additional indebtedness
(including additional series of bonds from time to time) on a parity with the
Series A Bonds, which shall be only for the payment of the cost of Additional
Facilities, with necessary appurtenances, which shall become a part of the
Hospital Project, as defined in the Official Statement.
The Bonds are legal, valid and binding limited obligations of the
Board payable solely from and secured by the pledge of Net Revenues, a Debt
Service Reserve Fund and certain investment income. The Bonds shall be a valid
claim of the respective owners thereof only against the moneys which are
pledged for the payment thereof.
The Bonds shall not constitute an indebtedness of the Commonwealth
of Kentucky within the meaning of any Kentucky constitutional provisions or
statutory limitations, and shall not constitute a general obligation of the
Board of Trustees or of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
