Headline: Our Definitive Merger Agreement to Welcome AV Homes to Taylor Morrison

Subhead: Learn more about the business we will grow to become once the pending transaction is final later this year.

Byline: Sheryl Palmer

By now I hope you’ve had a chance to read the email sent out early this morning about Taylor Morrison entering into a definitive merger agreement to acquire AV Homes. Of our three 2018 strategic priorities—Strategic Growth, Operational Excellence and a Differentiated Customer experience—the focus area I get the most questions around is growth. Which is why I’m so excited to be able to share more details with you today.

When we looked at M&A as a tactic for smart growth and began assessing other homebuilders we could welcome into our Taylor Morrison family, it became immediately clear that AV Homes was a great choice. Here are a few additional details I didn’t already share in my email this morning that I think you’ll find exciting.

Like us, AV Homes is a public builder operating in five of our key markets with decades of experience serving affordable first-time buyers, first move-up and active-adult consumer groups. In fact, their 55-plus land represents over 50 percent of their overall portfolio, including their award-winning, 4,000 acre community, Solivita, that is well known in the Central Florida region for offering its buyers the perfect balance of outdoor living, comfort and luxury. This extremely successful community is being followed by a sister community of approximately 2,800 acres, Solivita Grande.

And a few other statistics—through this acquisition we’ll increase our lot count by approximately 17,000 lots and our land bank from the four year range to the five year range. We’ll also add roughly 70 active selling communities. This grows our business by roughly 20 percent—a feat not easily accomplished overnight.

As I shared earlier, AV Homes’ complementary footprint and product offerings will help take us deeper into the highly sought-after markets we operate in today, including Orlando, Raleigh, Charlotte, Phoenix and Dallas-Fort Worth, as well as a re-entrance into Jacksonville. And, since AV Homes does not have a wholly owned financial services platform, we expect to see immense benefits through Taylor Morrison Home Funding and our Inspired Title Services organizations, resulting in an enhanced sales process, customer experience and increased mortgage capture rates.

What’s Next?

While we have four acquisitions under our belt already, AV Homes will make history as our largest and the first time we’ve acquired another public company. We expect the transaction to close in late Q3 or early Q4, at which time AV Homes’ communities and team members would officially be welcomed into the Taylor Morrison family.

I’ll close with painting a picture of what our bright future will look like: When Taylor Morrison and AV Homes officially become one later this year, we will operate in eight states, 21 markets with more than 350 active selling communities. And those are truly remarkable numbers.
