AGOURA HILLS, Calif., July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Homes 4 Rent
(NYSE: AMH) (the "Company"), a leading provider of high quality single-family
homes for rent, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of
Beazer Pre-Owned Rental Homes, Inc. ("Beazer Rental Homes"). The acquisition
adds more than 1,300 homes located in markets in Arizona, California, Florida
and Nevada to the Company's portfolio.
"We are pleased to add these well-located, high-quality homes to our
portfolio," said David P. Singelyn, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
"We expect to move quickly to seamlessly integrate these operations and
realize the resulting synergies as we continue to grow our business."
The acquisition was completed through a tax-free merger of Beazer Rental Homes
with a newly formed merger subsidiary of the Company. The merger consideration
consisted of approximately 8.2 million AMH common shares (subject to
adjustment based on reconciliation of the closing working capital acquired)
plus up to $5.0 million cash held in an indemnification escrow. In addition,
following the acquisition, the Company assumed and repaid certain liabilities
of Beazer Rental Homes, including approximately $112.8 million outstanding
under Beazer Rental Homes' credit agreement.
The issuance of the AMH common shares was made in reliance upon an exemption
from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended,
pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) thereof. The Company has agreed to file a
registration statement relating to the resale of the AMH common shares issued
in connection with the merger no later than August 15, 2014 and, subject to
certain exceptions, to cause the registration statement to remain effective
until the earlier of the date all the shares have been resold pursuant to the
registration statement, the shares are eligible to be freely sold pursuant to
Rule 144(b)(1) or one year after the closing.
