DALLAS, March 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Landsea Homes Corporation (Nasdaq: LSEA) (“Landsea Homes” or the “Company”), a publicly traded residential homebuilder, announced today the closing of its previously announced underwritten secondary offering by its largest stockholder, Landsea Holdings Corporation (the “Selling Stockholder”), of 2,434,783 shares of the Company’s common stock, at a price of $11.60 per share (before underwriting discounts and commissions), and the full exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase an additional 365,217 shares the Company’s common stock (the “Offering”). B. Riley Securities and BofA Securities acted as joint bookrunning managers in the Offering. BTIG and Wedbush Securities acted as co-managers in the Offering.

The Company did not offer any shares of its common stock in the Offering and did not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of the shares offered by the Selling Stockholder.

As a result of the Offering, the Selling Stockholder no longer beneficially owns a majority of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock, and the Company no longer qualifies as a “controlled company” under the Nasdaq listing standards. The Company is currently in compliance with and intends to comply with the transition period requirements applicable following the loss of such status under the Nasdaq listing standards.

“The closing of the Offering marks a significant milestone for our company,” said Landsea Homes Chief Executive Officer John Ho. “While Landsea Homes has always operated as an independent entity, it is an important step to no longer be considered a ‘controlled company’ under the Nasdaq listing standards. We also believe that reducing our investor concentration and cultivating a more diverse investor base are in the best interest of our shareholders. We appreciate the Selling Stockholder’s continued support.”

Certain members of the Company’s senior management team and board of directors and a family member of the Company’s Chairman purchased an aggregate of $915,000 in shares of common stock that was offered by the Selling Stockholder in the Offering, at a price equal to the per share Offering price.

A shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (including a prospectus) relating to these securities has been filed with and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Offering is being made solely by means of a prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. Copies of the final prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus relating to the Offering may be obtained by contacting B. Riley Securities, Inc., 1300 17th Street North, Suite 1300, Arlington, VA 22209, by telephone at 1-703-312-9580 or by e-mail at prospectuses@brileyfin.com or BofA Securities, NC1-022-02-25, 201 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28255-0001, Attn: Prospectus Department, Email: dg.prospectus_requests@bofa.com.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of any securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
