TRI Pointe Homes, Inc. (NYSE: TPH) announced at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time today that it has commenced its offers to exchange new registered notes for the outstanding unregistered notes that were issued in June 2014 in a private placement pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").

Under the exchange offers, TRI Pointe is offering to exchange (the "Exchange Offers"):
  • $450,000,000 aggregate principal amount of newly issued 4.375% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "New 2019 Notes") that have been registered under the Securities Act, and the related guarantees, for a like principal amount of outstanding restricted 4.375% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Outstanding 2019 Notes"), and the related guarantees; and
  • $450,000,000 aggregate principal amount of newly issued 5.875% Senior Notes due 2024 (the "New 2024 Notes" and, together with the New 2019 Notes, the "New Notes") that have been registered under the Securities Act, and the related guarantees, for a like principal amount of outstanding restricted 5.875% Senior Notes due 2024 (the "Outstanding 2024 Notes" and, together with the Outstanding 2019 Notes, the "Outstanding Notes"), and the related guarantees.

The New Notes will be guaranteed by TRI Pointe's subsidiaries that guarantee the Outstanding Notes. TRI Pointe will not receive any proceeds from the issuance of the New Notes. The Exchange Offers will not affect TRI Pointe's outstanding debt levels, as New Notes will only be issued upon cancellation of a like principal amount of the corresponding series of Outstanding Notes.
