Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Finan


ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

Underwriting Agreement

On August 1, 2013, Standard Pacific Corp. (the "Company") entered into an underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement"), by and among the Company, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto (the "Guarantors") and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., as representative of the underwriters listed therein (collectively, the "Underwriters"), relating to the sale by the Company of $300,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6 1/4% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "Notes").

Senior Notes

The Notes will be issued under the indenture, dated as of April 1, 1999 (the "Indenture"), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (as successor in interest to J.P. Morgan Trust Company, National Association, Bank One Trust Company, N.A. and The First National Bank of Chicago), as trustee (the "Trustee"), as supplemented by a Twentieth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of August 6, 2013, among the Company, the Guarantors, and the Trustee (the "Twentieth Supplemental Indenture"). The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of the Company and will be guaranteed by the Guarantors on a senior unsecured basis.

The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 6.25% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning on December 15, 2013. The Notes will mature on December 15, 2021.

The Company may redeem any or all of the Notes at any time or from time to time. If the Company redeems the notes prior to June 15, 2021, the redemption price will be equal to the greater of (a) 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed and (b) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments and interest on the notes being redeemed, discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the comparable treasury rate plus 50 basis points, plus, in either case, accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount being redeemed to the date of redemption. If the Company redeems the notes on or after June 15, 2021, the redemption price will be equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the principal amount being redeemed to the date of redemption.

Upon a "change of control triggering event" (as defined in the Twentieth Supplemental Indenture), holders of the Notes will have the right to require the Company to repurchase some or all of their notes at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of repurchase. A change of control triggering event occurs when both a change of control and a rating decline occur.

Pursuant to the terms of the Notes, the Company and its restricted subsidiaries will be subject to, among other covenants, restrictions on the incurrence of secured indebtedness, entering into sale and leaseback transactions, designating subsidiaries as unrestricted subsidiaries and the merger and sale of assets.

The Underwriters and their respective affiliates have in the past performed commercial banking, investment banking and advisory services for the Company from time to time for which they have received customary fees and reimbursement of expenses. In addition, affiliates of each of the Underwriters are lenders, and in some cases agents or managers for the lenders, under the Company's revolving credit facility. Citigroup Global Markets Inc. is joint lead arranger under the Company's revolving credit facility and Citicorp North America, Inc., an affiliate of Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. and Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, an affiliate of Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, are both lenders under the Company's revolving credit facility.

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement, the Notes and the Twentieth Supplemental Indenture is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement and the Twentieth Supplemental Indenture (including the form of Notes), which are attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and Exhibit 4.1, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
