ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 13, 2017--
Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (NYSE: BZH) (the “Company”) announced today the
results of its previously announced cash tender offer for any and all of
its 7.500% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Notes”), upon the terms and
conditions included in the Offer to Purchase, dated March 7, 2017.

amount of the Notes.
The tender offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain
conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase, including (1) the
receipt of at least $250 million in gross proceeds from one or more
offerings of senior notes on terms reasonably acceptable to the Company,
and (2) certain general conditions, in each case as described in more

satisfied, the Company may terminate the tender offer and return
tendered Notes, may waive unsatisfied conditions and accept for payment
and purchase all validly tendered Notes, may extend the tender offer or

or waived, holders who validly tendered and did not withdraw Notes prior

Guaranteed Delivery that have been sent to holders of the Notes. Holders
