Trusted advisor to Beazer Homes USA

Moelis & Company has served as financial advisor to Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (“Beazer,” NYSE: BZH), one of the country’s 10 largest single-family homebuilders, in its recapitalization efforts since April 2009, which has resulted in enhanced financial flexibility and allowed the company to continue to pursue growth opportunities.

On September 3, 2009, Beazer announced the pricing of $250 million of new 12.0% senior secured notes due 2017. The B1/CCC+ notes were issued at a price of 89.5% of par to yield 14.215%. Net proceeds from the offering were used to fund or replenish cash that had been used to fund open-market repurchases of Beazer’s outstanding senior notes, totaling over $370 million in principal amount. This transaction was a key step in providing cushion to the company’s tangible net worth covenant and extending its pending debt maturities.

On January 6, 2010, Beazer executed a concurrent $103 million common stock and $58 million mandatory convertible note offering. The anticipated two-day marketing process was shortened to a single day, and the common stock offering was upsized from 18.0 million to 19.5 million shares due to strong investor demand.

On May 3, 2010, Beazer executed a concurrent offering of $73 million common stock, $75 million tangible equity units and $300 million senior unsecured notes. Beazer raised approximately 36% of its pre-launch market value, half in the form of common equity and half in the form of tangible equity units. During the one-day marketing process, while the Dow and the S&P 500 declined 2.0% and 2.4%, respectively, and the homebuilding index decreased 3.4%, the equity offering successfully priced at a 15.6% discount to the prior-day market close and the senior notes priced in the middle of the expected range.

On July 10, 2012, Beazer priced concurrent offerings for $64 million of common stock and $100 million of tangible equity units. Beazer raised approximately 47% of its pre-launch market value, and the new equity provided substantial liquidity to further capitalize on the housing recovery. Moelis & Company acted as co-manager on the above transactions.”
