AV Homes, Inc. Announces $135 Million Equity Investment By TPG

Stocks in this article: AVHI

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AV Homes, Inc. (Nasdaq:AVHI), a developer and builder of active adult and conventional home communities in Arizona and Florida, today announced that TPG, a leading global private investment firm, has agreed to make a $135 million investment in the Company at a price of $14.65 per share, which represents a 9.6% premium to the 30-day trailing average closing price of AV Homes' common stock. AV Homes will use the proceeds to accelerate the implementation of its strategic growth plan in its existing and new high-potential housing markets. In addition the Company has adopted a shareholder rights plan effective today designed to protect its net operating loss assets from the application of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Since 2011, AV Homes has strategically re-engineered the Company to position it to benefit from the recovery of the homebuilding industry. It reduced overhead, launched initiatives to improve internal processes, invested in a new scalable IT platform, and developed a strategic plan to guide its growth.

Roger A. Cregg, AV Homes' President and Chief Executive Officer, said the investment will allow the Company to pursue new investment opportunities in its core markets in line with the Company's long-term strategy. "We're delighted that a renowned global private investment firm such as TPG has confidence in our vision, and in our ability to execute that vision, as the housing industry continues its recovery. It's an exciting time for AV Homes and I am confident that the implementation of our plans will drive growth and deliver long-term value to our shareholders," Cregg said.

AV Homes currently operates in the Phoenix, Arizona and Central and South Florida markets. The Company's primary operations are focused on the development of active adult communities designed for people 55+ through its Vitalia brand, and serving the housing needs of first-time and move-up homebuyers through its Joseph Carl Homes brand.
