KB Home Planning Debt Sale to Fund $150 Million Buyback of Bonds

July 11, 2012

KB Home (KBH:US), the Los Angeles-based house builder, said it would sell unsecured debt to fund an offer to buy back as much as $150 million of bonds.

The company is seeking to repurchase most of its $193.7 million of 5.75 percent notes due February 2014 for as much as 104 cents on the dollar, KB Home said today in a statement. It didn’t say when it would sell the new bonds.

KB Home has about $1.58 billion (KBH:US) of bonds outstanding, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Home sales at the company dwindled to 5,812 last year from a record 32,124 in fiscal 2006, according to regulatory filings.
