KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today reported that it has completed the previously announced sale of 6.325 million shares of its common stock and of $230 million in aggregate principal amount of its 1.375% convertible senior notes due 2019. These amounts include the exercise in full by the underwriters of their options in the applicable offerings to purchase shares of common stock, and to purchase convertible senior notes to cover over-allotments. The Company received total net proceeds of approximately $332.9 million from the offerings, after underwriting discounts and estimated expenses payable by the Company, which it intends to use for general corporate purposes, including without limitation land acquisition and development.
The convertible senior notes bear interest at a rate of 1.375% per year, payable semi-annually in arrears, and will mature in 2019, unless earlier purchased, redeemed or converted. The senior notes are convertible into shares of KB Home’s common stock at an initial conversion rate of 36.5297 shares per $1,000 principal amount of senior notes, which is equal to a conversion price of approximately $27.37 per share, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The convertible senior notes are guaranteed on an unsecured senior basis by certain of KB Home’s subsidiaries that have guaranteed the Company’s outstanding senior notes.
The concurrent offerings were made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement that KB Home has on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), by means of separate prospectus supplements.
