·4 min read

NEW YORK, Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Newport Merger Sub, Inc. (the “Merger Sub”), an affiliate of certain investment funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, Inc. (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Apollo”), has received the requisite consents to amend certain terms of the Indenture, dated as of October 28, 2020, by and among The New Home Company Inc. (“The New Home Company”), the guarantors party thereto and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture dated as of February 24, 2021, the Second Supplemental Indenture dated as of March 9, 2021, the Officer’s Certificate dated as of February 24, 2021 and by the Global Security for the 7.250% Senior Notes due 2025, as further amended or supplemented (the “Indenture”) governing The New Home Company’s 7.250% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”) in connection with the previously announced solicitation of consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the Notes.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 3, 2021, the Merger Sub has been advised by Ipreo LLC, as the information and tabulation agent for the Consent Solicitation, that consents were delivered and not revoked in respect of $280,909,000 principal amount, or approximately 98.56%, of the outstanding $285,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Notes, excluding any Notes owned by The New Home Company or any of its affiliates. As a result, the requisite consent of noteholders was obtained and The New Home Company and the Trustee entered into the third supplemental indenture described in the Consent Solicitation Statement.

The Consent Solicitation was conducted in connection with the previously announced merger agreement, pursuant to which, among other things, Newport Holdings, LLC, the parent of Merger Sub, has agreed to acquire The New Home Company (the “Merger”). The Merger would constitute a “Change of Control” under the Notes. The amendments, which will not become operative until Merger Sub pays the consent fee in accordance with the terms of the Consent Solicitation, will eliminate the requirement for The New Home Company to make a “Change of Control Offer” with respect to the Notes in connection with the Merger and would make certain other customary changes for a privately-held company to the “Change of Control” provisions in the Notes.

This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell any securities or the solicitation of an offer to purchase any securities.

J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, RBC Capital Markets, LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and Apollo Global Securities, LLC acted as solicitation agents (the “Solicitation Agents”) for the Consent Solicitation. Ipreo LLC acted as the information and tabulation agent for the Consent Solicitation.
