MIAMI, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN and LEN.B) announced that $204.7 million principal amount of its 5.95% Senior Notes due 2013 ("5.95% Senior Notes") were validly tendered by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 30, 2012, and not withdrawn, in response to Lennar's offer to purchase any and all of the 5.95% Senior Notes for 103% of their principal amount with regard to the 5.95% Senior Notes that were tendered by that time, and for 102% of their principal amount with regard to the 5.95% Senior Notes that are tendered after that time but before the offer expires.  

Lennar has accepted all the 5.95% Senior Notes that were validly tendered and not withdrawn by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 30, 2012. It expects to pay the purchase price for those 5.95% Senior Notes on July 31, 2012, together with accrued interest to but not including that day. Lennar's obligation to purchase tendered 5.95% Senior Notes had been conditioned upon completion of a sale of at least $300 million principal amount of a new issue of Senior Notes due 2017. That condition was satisfied by a sale of $350 million principal amount of 4.75% Senior Notes due 2017 on July 20, 2012. 

When Lennar completes the purchase of the 5.95% Senior Notes that were tendered by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 30, 2012, a total of $63.0 million principal amount of 5.95% Senior Notes will still be outstanding. Lennar will accept and purchase all the remaining 5.95% Senior Notes that are validly tendered after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 30, 2012 and before the offer expires, which will occur at 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on August 14, 2012, unless Lennar extends the offer. It will pay for those 5.95% Senior Notes shortly after the offer expires. Tenders of 5.95% Senior Notes after 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 30, 2012 may not be withdrawn.
