RED BANK, N.J., Sept. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:HOV) (the "Company") announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, K. Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. ("K. Hovnanian"), priced $577.0 million aggregate principal amount of 7.250% senior secured first lien notes due 2020 (the "First Lien Notes") and $220.0 million aggregate principal amount of 9.125% senior secured second lien notes due 2020 (the "Second Lien Notes" and, together with the First Lien Notes, the "Notes") in a private placement (the "Notes Offering"). K. Hovnanian also priced its previously announced underwritten public offering (the "Units Offering") of senior exchangeable note units (the "Units").

The Notes will be guaranteed by the Company and substantially all of its subsidiaries. The First Lien Notes and the guarantees thereof will be secured on a first-priority basis by substantially all the assets owned by K.
