SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AV Homes, Inc. (Nasdaq:AVHI) (the "Company"), a developer and builder of active adult and conventional home communities in Florida, Arizona and North Carolina, today announced the results of the previously announced option of holders of $5,402,000 aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 4.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (CUSIP Nos. 053494 AE0 and 053494 AF7) (the "Notes") to require the Company to repurchase all or a portion of their Notes pursuant to the terms of the Notes and the indenture governing the Notes (the "Repurchase Right"). Under the terms of the Repurchase Right, holders of the Notes had the opportunity to surrender the Notes for repurchase prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 27, 2014 (the "Repurchase Deadline") and had the opportunity to withdraw any Notes previously surrendered for repurchase at any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 31, 2014 (the "Withdrawal Deadline"). $5,402,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes was validly surrendered as of the Repurchase Deadline and not validly withdrawn as of the Withdrawal Deadline, and therefore $5,402,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes were repurchased by the Company as of April 1, 2014 pursuant to the Repurchase Right. The repurchase of the Notes will be funded by the Company's available cash. The full aggregate principal amount of the Notes was surrendered for repurchase, and therefore none of the Notes remain outstanding.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities, including the Notes.
