Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 28, 2018, LGI Homes, Inc. (the “Company”) and the subsidiaries of the Company that guarantee the Company’s obligations under its revolving credit facility (the “Subsidiary Guarantors”) entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as representatives of the several initial purchasers named therein (collectively, the “Initial Purchasers”), with respect to the issuance and sale by the Company of $300,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 6.875% Senior Notes due 2026 (the “Notes”) in a private offering to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The offering of the Notes is expected to close on July 6, 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements of the Company and customary closing conditions, obligations of the parties and termination provisions. Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company and the Subsidiary Guarantors have agreed, among other things, to indemnify the Initial Purchasers against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or contribute to payments that the Initial Purchasers may be required to make in respect of those liabilities.
The Company expects to receive net proceeds from the offering of the Notes of approximately $296.3 million, after deducting the Initial Purchasers’ discounts and commissions. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay a portion of the borrowings under its revolving credit facility.
The description of the Purchase Agreement set forth above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report and incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01    Other Events.
On June 28, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the pricing of the Notes. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and incorporated herein by reference.
The offer and sale of the Notes and the related guarantees have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration under, or an applicable exemption from, the registration requirements of the Securities Act.
This Current Report does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. Offers of the Notes will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum.

Forward-looking statements include statements relating to, among other things, statements about the closing of the offering of the Notes, the intended use of proceeds thereof or other aspects of the offering of the Notes. The forward-looking statements are subject to and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions and undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements.

The payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest on the Notes will be jointly, severally, fully and unconditionally guaranteed (collectively, the “Guarantees”) on a senior unsecured basis by each of the Guarantors. The Notes and the Guarantees are collectively referred to herein as the “Securities.” The Securities will be issued by the Company and the Guarantors, as applicable, pursuant to an indenture (the “Base Indenture”), to be dated as of the Closing Date (defined below), by and among the Company, the Guarantors and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as Trustee (the “Trustee”), as amended and supplemented by the first supplemental indenture thereto (the “First Supplemental Indenture”), to be dated as of the Closing Date, by and among the Company, the Guarantors and the Trustee. The Base Indenture as amended and supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture is referred to herein as the “Indenture.
The sale of the Securities to the Initial Purchasers will be made without registration of the Securities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (collectively, the “Act”) in reliance upon exemptions from the registration requirements of the Act.



In connection with the sale of the Securities, the Company and the Guarantors have prepared a preliminary offering memorandum, dated June 21, 2018 (including the information incorporated by reference therein, the “Preliminary Memorandum”). As used herein, “Pricing Disclosure Package” shall mean the Preliminary Memorandum, as supplemented or amended by the written communications listed on Annex A hereto in the most recent form that has been prepared and delivered by the Company to the Initial Purchasers in connection with their solicitation of offers to purchase Notes prior to the time when sales of the Notes were first made (the “Time of Execution”). Promptly after the Time of Execution and in any event no later than the second Business Day following the Time of Execution, the Company will prepare and deliver to each Initial Purchaser a final offering memorandum (including the information incorporated by reference therein, the “Final Memorandum”), which will consist of the Preliminary Memorandum with such changes therein as are required to reflect the information contained in the amendments or supplements listed on Annex A hereto. The Company hereby confirms that it has authorized the use of the Pricing Disclosure Package, the Final Memorandum and the Road Show Slides (defined below) in connection with the offer and sale of the Securities by the Initial Purchasers.
Section 2.Representations and Warranties. As of the Time of Execution and at the Closing Date, each of the Company and the Guarantors, jointly and severally, represents and warrants to and agrees with each of the Initial Purchasers as follows (references in this Section 2 to the “Offering Memorandum” are to (i) the Pricing Disclosure Package in the case of representations and warranties made as of the Time of Execution and (ii) both the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum in the case of representations and warranties made at the Closing Date):

The Company has not distributed or referred to and will not distribute or refer to any written communications (as defined in Rule 405 of the Act) that constitutes an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy the Securities (each such communication by the Company, the Guarantors or their respective agents and representatives (other than the Pricing Disclosure Package and Final Memorandum) an “Issuer Written Communication”) other than the Pricing Disclosure Package, the Final Memorandum and the electronic road show slide presentation made available to investors (the “Road Show Slides”). Any information in an Issuer Written Communication that is not otherwise included in the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum does not conflict with the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Memorandum and, each Issuer Written Communication, when taken together with the Pricing Disclosure Package does not at the Time of Execution and when taken together with the Final Memorandum at the Closing Date, will not, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.

(j)No registration under the Act of the Securities is required in connection with the sale of the Securities to the Initial Purchasers as contemplated by this Agreement and the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum or in connection with the initial resale of the Securities by the Initial Purchasers in accordance with Section 8 of this Agreement, and the Indenture is not required to be qualified under the TIA, in each case assuming (i) (A) that the purchasers who buy such Securities in the initial resale thereof are qualified institutional buyers as defined in Rule 144A promulgated under the Act (“QIBs”) or (B) that the offer or sale of the Securities is made in an offshore transaction as defined in Regulation S, (ii) the accuracy of the representations of the Company contained in this Agreement and of the Initial Purchasers in Section 8 hereof regarding the absence of a general solicitation in connection with the sale of such Securities to the Initial Purchasers and the initial resale thereof and (iii) the due performance by the Initial Purchasers of the agreements set forth in Section 8 hereof.
On or before the Closing Date, the Initial Purchasers and counsel for the Initial Purchasers shall have received such further documents, opinions, certificates, letters and schedules or instruments relating to the business, corporate, legal and financial affairs of the Company and the Subsidiaries as they shall have heretofore reasonably requested from the Company or the Guarantors.
All such documents, opinions, certificates, letters, schedules or instruments delivered pursuant to this Agreement will comply with the provisions hereof only if they are reasonably satisfactory in all material respects to the Initial Purchasers and counsel for the Initial Purchasers. The Company or any Guarantor, as applicable, shall furnish to the Initial Purchasers such conformed copies of such documents, opinions, certificates, letters, schedules and instruments in such quantities as the Initial Purchasers shall reasonably request.
Section 8.Offering of Securities; Restrictions on Transfer.
(a)Each Initial Purchaser hereby represents and agrees with the Company (as to itself only) that it has not and will not use, authorize use of, refer to, or participate in the planning for use of, any written communication that constitutes an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Securities other than (i) the Road Show Slides, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum, (ii) a written communication that contains no “issuer information” (as defined in Rule 433(h)(2) under the Act) that was not included in the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Memorandum, (iii) any written communication listed on Annex A or prepared pursuant to Section 5(c) above, (iv) any written communication prepared by such Initial Purchaser and approved by the Company in advance in writing or (v) any written communication relating to or that contains the terms of the Securities and/or other information that was included in the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Memorandum.
(b)Each Initial Purchaser hereby represents and agrees with the Company (as to itself only) that (i) it has not and will not solicit offers for, or offer or sell, the Securities by any form of



general solicitation or general advertising (as those terms are used in Regulation D) or in any manner involving a public offering within the meaning of Section 4(a)(2) of the Act; (ii) it is a QIB and it will offer the Securities for resale only upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Offering Memorandum and (iii) it has and will solicit offers for the Securities only from, and will offer the Securities only to (a) inside the United States, persons whom the Initial Purchasers reasonably believe to be QIBs or, if any such person is buying for one or more institutional accounts for which such person is acting as fiduciary or agent, only when such person has represented to the Initial Purchasers that each such account is a QIB, to whom notice has been given that such sale or delivery is being made in reliance on Rule 144A, and, in each case, in transactions under Rule 144A and (b) outside the United States, persons other than U.S. persons (“non-U.S. purchasers,” which terms shall include dealers or other professional fiduciaries in the United States acting on a discretionary basis for non U.S. beneficial owners (other than an estate or trust)); provided, however, that in the case of this clause (b), in purchasing such Securities such persons are deemed to have represented and agreed as provided under the caption “Notice to Investors” contained in the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum.
(c)Each Initial Purchaser hereby represents and warrants (as to itself only) with respect to sales outside the United States that (i) the Securities have not been and will not be sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons except in accordance with Regulation S or pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Act; and (ii) it will sell the Securities (a) as part of its distribution at any time and (b) otherwise until 40 days after the later of the commencement of the offering and the Closing Date, only in accordance with Rule 903 of Regulation S and, accordingly, neither it nor any persons acting on its behalf have engaged or will engage in any directed selling efforts (within the meaning of Regulation S) with respect to the Securities, and any such persons have complied and will comply with the offering restrictions requirement of Regulation S.
Section 9.Indemnification and Contribution.
(a)Each of the Company and the Guarantors, jointly and severally, agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Initial Purchaser, the directors, managers and officers of each Initial Purchaser and each person, if any, who controls any Initial Purchaser within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which any Initial Purchaser or such controlling person may become subject under the Act, the Exchange Act or otherwise, insofar as any such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon the following:
(i)any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement made by the Company or any Guarantor in Section 2 hereof;
(ii)any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Pricing Disclosure Package, any Issuer Written Communication or Final Memorandum or any amendment or supplement thereto; or
(iii)the omission or alleged omission to state, in the Pricing Disclosure Package, any Issuer Written Communication or the Final Memorandum or any amendment or supplement thereto, a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading;



and will reimburse, as incurred, the Initial Purchasers, the directors, managers and officers of each Initial Purchaser and each such controlling person for any reasonable legal or other expenses incurred by the Initial Purchasers, the directors, managers and officers of each Initial Purchaser or such controlling person in connection with investigating, defending against or appearing as a third-party witness in connection with any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the Company and each of the Guarantors will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage, or liability arises out of or is based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in the Pricing Disclosure Package or Final Memorandum or any amendment or supplement thereto in reliance upon and in conformity with written information concerning the Initial Purchasers furnished to the Company by the Initial Purchasers through the Representatives specifically for use therein, it being understood and agreed that the only such information furnished by or on behalf of any Initial Purchaser consists of the information described as such in Section 13 hereof. The indemnity provided for in this Section 9 will be in addition to any liability that the Company may otherwise have to the indemnified parties. The Company and the Guarantors shall not be liable under this Section 9 for any settlement of any claim or action effected without their prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
(b)Each Initial Purchaser, severally and not jointly, agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, the Guarantors and their respective directors, managers, officers and each person, if any, who controls the Company and the Guarantors within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities to which the Company, the Guarantors or any such director, officer or controlling person may become subject under the Act, the Exchange Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Pricing Disclosure Package or Final Memorandum or any amendment or supplement thereto, or (ii) the omission or the alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated in the Pricing Disclosure Package or Final Memorandum or any amendment or supplement thereto, or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information concerning such Initial Purchaser, furnished to the Company by the Initial Purchasers through the Representatives specifically for use therein, it being understood and agreed that the only such information furnished by or on behalf of any Initial Purchaser consists of the information described as such in Section 13 hereof; and subject to the limitation set forth immediately preceding this clause, will reimburse, as incurred, any reasonable legal or other expenses incurred by the Company or the Guarantors or any such director, officer or controlling person in connection with investigating or defending against or appearing as a third party witness in connection with any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action in respect thereof. The indemnity provided for in this Section 9 will be in addition to any liability that the Initial Purchasers may otherwise have to the indemnified parties. The Initial Purchasers shall not be liable under this Section 9 for any settlement of any claim or action effected without their consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
(c)Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 9 of notice of the commencement of any action for which such indemnified party is entitled to indemnification under this Section 9, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the indemnifying party under this Section 9, notify the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof in writing; but the omission to so notify the indemnifying party (i) will not relieve it from any liability



under paragraph (a) or (b) above unless and to the extent such failure results in the forfeiture by the indemnifying party of substantial rights and defenses and (ii) will not, in any event, relieve the indemnifying party from any obligations to any indemnified party other than the indemnification obligation provided in paragraphs (a) and (b) above. In case any such action is brought against any indemnified party, and it notifies the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate therein and, to the extent that it may wish, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel (including local counsel, if appropriate) reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; provided, however, that if (i) the use of counsel (including local counsel, if appropriate) chosen by the indemnifying party to represent the indemnified party would present such counsel with a conflict of interest, (ii) the actual or potential defendants in, or targets of, any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that there may be one or more legal defenses available to it and/or other indemnified parties that are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, or (iii) the indemnifying party shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party within a reasonable time after receipt by the indemnifying party of notice of the institution of such action, then, in each such case, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to direct the defense of such action on behalf of such indemnified party or parties and such indemnified party or parties shall have the right to select separate counsel (including local counsel, if appropriate) to defend such action on behalf of such indemnified party or parties. After notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof and approval by such indemnified party of counsel appointed to defend such action, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 9 for any legal or other expenses, other than reasonable costs of investigation, subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof, unless (i) the indemnified party shall have employed separate counsel in accordance with the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence (it being understood, however, that in connection with such action the indemnifying party shall not be liable for the expenses of more than one separate counsel (in addition to not more than one local counsel, if appropriate) in any one action or separate but substantially similar actions in the same jurisdiction arising out of the same general allegations or circumstances, designated by the Initial Purchasers in the case of paragraph (a) of this Section 9 or the Company or the Guarantors in the case of paragraph (b) of this Section 9, representing the indemnified parties under such paragraph (a) or paragraph (b), as the case may be, who are parties to such action or actions) or (ii) the indemnifying party has authorized in writing the employment of counsel for the indemnified party at the expense of the indemnifying party. All fees and expenses reimbursed pursuant to this paragraph (c) shall be reimbursed as they are incurred. After such notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party, the indemnifying party will not be liable for the costs and expenses of any settlement of such action effected by such indemnified party without the prior written consent of the indemnifying party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), unless such indemnified party waived in writing its rights under this Section 9, in which case the indemnified party may effect such a settlement without such consent. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any settlement or compromise of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been a party, or indemnity could have been sought hereunder by any indemnified party, unless such settlement (A) includes an unconditional written release of the indemnified party, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party, from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding and (B) does not include any statement as to an admission of fault, culpability or failure to act by or on behalf of any indemnified party.



(d)In circumstances in which the indemnity agreement provided for in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 9 is unavailable to, or insufficient to hold harmless, an indemnified party in respect of any losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof), each indemnifying party, in order to provide for just and equitable contribution, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect (i) the relative benefits received by the indemnifying party or parties on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other from the offering of the Securities or (ii) if the allocation provided by the foregoing clause (i) is not permitted by applicable law, not only such relative benefits but also the relative fault of the indemnifying party or parties on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other in connection with the statements or omissions or alleged statements or omissions that resulted in such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof). The relative benefits received by the Company and the Guarantors on the one hand and any Initial Purchaser on the other shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as the total proceeds from the offering (before deducting expenses) received by the Company and the Guarantors bear to the total discounts and commissions received by such Initial Purchaser. The relative fault of the parties shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Company and the Guarantors on the one hand, or such Initial Purchaser on the other, the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission or alleged statement or omission, and any other equitable considerations appropriate in the circumstances. The Company, the Guarantors and the Initial Purchasers agree that it would not be equitable if the amount of such contribution were determined by pro rata or per capita allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take into account the equitable considerations referred to in the first sentence of this paragraph (d). Notwithstanding any other provision of this paragraph (d), no Initial Purchaser shall be obligated to make contributions hereunder that in the aggregate exceed the total discounts, commissions and other compensation received by such Initial Purchaser under this Agreement, less the aggregate amount of any damages that such Initial Purchaser has otherwise been required to pay by reason of the untrue or alleged untrue statements or the omissions or alleged omissions to state a material fact, and no person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. For purposes of this paragraph (d), each person, if any, who controls an Initial Purchaser within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act shall have the same rights to contribution as the Initial Purchasers, and each director of the Company or any Guarantor, each officer of the Company or any Guarantor and each person, if any, who controls the Company or any Guarantor within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act, shall have the same rights to contribution as the Company and the Guarantors.
Section 10.Survival Clause. The respective representations, warranties, agreements, covenants, indemnities and other statements of the Company, the Guarantors and their respective officers and the Initial Purchasers set forth in this Agreement or made by or on behalf of them pursuant to this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect, regardless of (i) any investigation made by or on behalf of the Company, the Guarantors or any of their respective officers, managers or directors, the Initial Purchasers or any of their respective officers, managers or directors or any controlling person referred to in Section 9 hereof and (ii) delivery of and payment for the Securities. The respective agreements, covenants, indemnities and other statements set forth in Sections 6, 9, 10, 15 and 16 hereof shall remain in full force and effect, regardless of any termination or cancellation of this Agreement.



Section 11.Termination.
(a)This Agreement may be terminated in the sole discretion of the Initial Purchasers by notice to the Company given prior to the Closing Date in the event that the Company or any of the Guarantors shall have failed, refused or been unable to perform all obligations and satisfy all conditions on its part to be performed or satisfied hereunder at or prior thereto or, if at or prior to the Closing Date,
(i)there shall have been, in the sole judgment of the Initial Purchasers, any event or development that, individually or in the aggregate, has or could be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect (including without limitation a change in control of the Company or its Subsidiaries), except in each case as described in the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum (exclusive of any amendment or supplement thereto);
(ii)trading in securities of the Company or in securities generally on the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ Global Select Market or by the Commission shall have been suspended or materially limited or minimum or maximum prices shall have been established on any such exchange or market;
(iii)a banking moratorium shall have been declared by New York or United States authorities or a material disruption in commercial banking or securities settlement or clearance services in the United States;
(iv)there shall have been (A) an outbreak or escalation of hostilities between the United States and any foreign power, (B) an outbreak or escalation of any other insurrection or armed conflict involving the United States or any other national or international calamity or emergency or (C) any material change in the financial markets of the United States, which, in the case of (A), (B) or (C) above and in the sole judgment of the Initial Purchasers, makes it impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the offering or the delivery of the Securities as contemplated by the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Memorandum; or
(v)any securities of the Company shall have been downgraded by any nationally recognized statistical rating organization or any such organization shall have publicly announced that it has under surveillance or review, or has changed its outlook with respect to, its ratings of any securities of the Company (other than an announcement with positive implications of a possible upgrading).
(b)Termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 11 shall be without liability of any party to any other party except as provided in Section 10 hereof.
Section 12.Defaulting Initial Purchaser.
(a)If, on the Closing Date, any Initial Purchaser defaults on its obligation to purchase the Securities that it has agreed to purchase hereunder on such date, the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers may in their discretion arrange for the purchase of such Securities by other persons satisfactory to the Company on the terms contained in this Agreement. If, within 36 hours after any such default by any Initial Purchaser, the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers do not arrange for the purchase of such Securities, then the Company shall be entitled to a further period of 36 hours within which to procure other persons satisfactory to the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers to purchase such



Securities on such terms. If other persons become obligated or agree to purchase the Notes of a defaulting Initial Purchaser, either the non‑defaulting Initial Purchasers or the Company may postpone the Closing Date for up to five full business days in order to effect any changes that in the opinion of counsel for the Company or counsel for the Initial Purchasers may be necessary in the Pricing Disclosure Package, the Final Memorandum or in any other document or arrangement, and the Company agrees to promptly prepare any amendment or supplement to the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Memorandum that effects any such changes. As used in this Agreement, the term “Initial Purchaser” includes, for all purposes of this Agreement unless the context otherwise requires, any person not listed in Schedule 1 attached hereto that, pursuant to this Section 12, purchases Securities that a defaulting Initial Purchaser agreed but failed to purchase.
(b)If, after giving effect to any arrangements for the purchase of the Securities of a defaulting Initial Purchaser or Initial Purchasers by the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers and the Company as provided in paragraph (a) above, the aggregate principal amount of such Securities that remains unpurchased on the Closing Date does not exceed one-eleventh of the aggregate principal amount of the Securities to be purchased on such date, then the Company shall have the right to require each non-defaulting Initial Purchaser to purchase the principal amount of the Securities that such Initial Purchaser agreed to purchase hereunder on such date plus such Initial Purchaser’s pro rata share (based on the principal amount of the Securities that such Initial Purchaser agreed to purchase on such date) of the Securities of such defaulting Initial Purchaser or Initial Purchasers for which such arrangements have not been made.
(c)If, after giving effect to any arrangements for the purchase of the Securities of a defaulting Initial Purchaser or Initial Purchasers by the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers and the Company as provided in paragraph (a) above, the aggregate principal amount of such Securities that remains unpurchased on the Closing Date exceeds one-eleventh of the aggregate principal amount of the Securities to be purchased on such date, or if the Company shall not exercise the right described in paragraph (b) above, then this Agreement shall terminate without liability on the part of the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers. Any termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 12 shall be without liability on the part of the Company, except that the Company will continue to be liable for the payment of expenses as set forth in Section 6 hereof and except that the provisions of Section 9 hereof shall not terminate and shall remain in effect.
(d)Nothing contained herein shall relieve a defaulting Initial Purchaser of any liability it may have to the Company or any non-defaulting Initial Purchaser for damages caused by its default.
Section 13.Information Supplied by the Initial Purchasers. The statements set forth in the fourth paragraph of the “Plan of Distribution” section and the third sentence of the “Plan of Distribution—New Issue of Notes” section in the Preliminary Memorandum and the Final Memorandum (to the extent such statements relate to the Initial Purchasers) constitute the only information furnished by the Initial Purchasers to the Company for the purposes of Sections 2(a) and 9 hereof.
Section 14.Notices. All communications hereunder shall be in writing and (a) if sent to the Initial Purchasers, shall be mailed or delivered to Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., 60 Wall Street, New York, New York 10005, Attention: Leveraged Debt Capital Markets, Second Floor, fax: (212) 797-4877, with a copy to the attention of the General Counsel, 36th Floor, facsimile: (646) 374-1071; and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, 301 S.

Section 15.Successors. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the Initial Purchasers, the Company and the Guarantors and their respective successors and legal representatives, and nothing expressed or mentioned in this Agreement is intended or shall be construed to give any other person any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or in respect of this Agreement, or any provisions herein contained; this Agreement and all conditions and provisions hereof being intended to be and being for the sole and exclusive benefit of such persons and for the benefit of no other person except that (i) the indemnities of the Company and the Guarantors contained in Section 9 hereof shall also be for the benefit of the directors, managers and officers of the Initial Purchasers, their respective officers and any person or persons who control the Initial Purchasers within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act and (ii) the indemnities of the Initial Purchasers contained in Section 9 hereof shall also be for the benefit of the directors, managers and officers of the Company and the Guarantors and any person or persons who control the Company and the Guarantors within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act. No purchaser of Securities from the Initial Purchasers will be deemed a successor because of such purchase.
Section 16.Authority of the Representatives. Any action by the Initial Purchasers hereunder may be taken by the Representatives on behalf of the Initial Purchasers, and any such action taken by the Representatives shall be binding upon the Initial Purchasers.
Section 17.Partial Unenforceability. The invalidity or unenforceability of any section, paragraph or provision of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other section, paragraph or provision hereof. If any section, paragraph or provision of this Agreement is for any reason determined to be invalid or unenforceable, there shall be deemed to be made such minor changes (and only such minor changes) as are necessary to make it valid and enforceable.
Section 18.APPLICABLE LAW. THE VALIDITY AND INTERPRETATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH HEREIN SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS MADE AND TO BE PERFORMED WHOLLY THEREIN, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY PROVISIONS THEREOF RELATING TO CONFLICTS OF LAW.
Section 19.Submission to Jurisdiction. Each of the parties hereto submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and state courts in the Borough of Manhattan in The City of New York in any suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, unconditionally waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such suit or proceeding in such courts and irrevocably and unconditionally waives and agrees not to plead or claim that any such suit or proceeding in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
Section 20.No Advisory or Fiduciary Responsibility. Each of the Company and the Guarantors acknowledges and agrees that (i) the purchase and sale of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement is an arm’s-length commercial transaction between the Company and each Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Initial Purchasers, on the other, (ii) in connection therewith and with the process leading to such transaction, each Initial Purchaser is acting solely as a principal and not the agent or fiduciary of the Company



or any Guarantor, (iii) no Initial Purchaser (other than Builder Advisor Group LLC) has assumed an advisory or fiduciary responsibility in favor of the Company or any Guarantor with respect to the offering contemplated hereby or the process leading thereto (irrespective of whether such Initial Purchaser has advised or is currently advising the Company or any Guarantor on other matters) or any other obligation to the Company or any Guarantor except the obligations expressly set forth in this Agreement and (iv) each of the Company and the Guarantors has consulted its own legal and financial advisors to the extent it deemed appropriate. The Company agrees that it will not claim that any Initial Purchaser (other than Builder Advisor Group LLC) has rendered advisory services of any nature or respect, or owes a fiduciary or similar duty to the Company or any Guarantor, in connection with such transaction or the process leading thereto.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties to this Agreement and supersedes all prior written or oral and all contemporaneous oral agreements, understandings and negotiations with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument.
