Form 8-K for BEAZER HOMES USA INC

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial O


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 8, 2014, Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (the "Company") issued and sold $325 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.750% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Notes") through a private placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes were initially sold pursuant to a purchase agreement, dated April 3, 2014, among the Company, the wholly-owned subsidiaries named as guarantors therein (the "Guarantors") and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., as representative of the initial purchasers named therein (the "Initial Purchasers").

Interest on the Notes is payable semi-annually in cash in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing December 15, 2014. The Notes will mature on June 15, 2019.

The Notes were issued under an Indenture, dated April 8, 2014 (the "Indenture"), among the Company, the Guarantors and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee. The Indenture contains covenants which, subject to certain exceptions, limit the ability of the Company and its restricted subsidiaries (as defined in the Indenture) to, among other things, incur additional secured indebtedness and engage in certain sale and leaseback transactions. The Indenture contains customary events of default. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, payments on the Notes may be accelerated and become immediately due and payable.

Upon a change of control (as defined in the Indenture), the Indenture requires the Company to make an offer to repurchase the Notes at 101% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The Company may redeem the Notes at any time prior to March 15, 2019, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount, plus a customary make-whole premium, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date. In addition, at any time on or prior to June 15, 2017, the Company may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of Notes with the proceeds of certain equity offerings at a redemption price equal to 105.750% of the principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the date fixed for redemption; provided, that at least 65% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes originally issued under the Indenture remain outstanding after such redemption. On or after March 15, 2019, the Company may redeem some or all of the Notes at 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.

The Notes rank equally in right of payment with all of the Company's existing and future senior unsecured obligations, senior to all of the Company's existing and future subordinated indebtedness and effectively subordinated to the Company's existing and future secured indebtedness, including indebtedness under the Company's revolving credit facility and the Company's 6.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2018, to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness. The Notes and related guarantees are structurally subordinated to all indebtedness and other liabilities of all of the Company's subsidiaries that do not guarantee the Notes. The Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed jointly and severally on a senior basis by the Guarantors.

In connection with the issuance of the Notes, the Company and the Guarantors entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of April 8, 2014 (the "Registration Rights Agreement"), with the representative of the Initial Purchasers. The Registration Rights Agreement requires the Company to register under the Securities Act the issuance, in exchange for the privately-placed Notes, of 5.750% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Exchange Notes") having substantially identical terms to the Notes and to complete the exchange or, if the exchange cannot be effected, to file and keep effective a shelf registration statement for resale of the privately-placed Notes. Failure of the Company to comply with the registration and exchange requirements in the Registration Rights Agreement within the specified time period would require the Company to pay as liquidated damages additional interest on the privately-placed Notes until the failure to comply is cured.


The foregoing descriptions of the Indenture, the Notes and the Registration Rights Agreement are qualified in their entirety to the forms of the Notes, the Indenture and the Registration Rights Agreement filed herewith as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, respectively, and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference.

The Initial Purchasers or their affiliates have 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.



Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth above under Item 1.01 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.



Item 8.01. Other Events.

On April 8, 2014, the Company used the net cash proceeds from the offering of the Notes to pre-fund the redemption of all of its 9.125% Senior Notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes"). The redemption date for the 2018 Notes is April 23, 2014.

On April 8, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing the completion of the offering of the Notes, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
