Landsea Homes | January 20, 2022

Landsea Homes Corporation (Nasdaq: LSEA) ("Landsea Homes" or the "Company"), a publicly traded residential homebuilder, announced today the completion of its acquisition of Hanover Family Builders (HFB), an Orlando-based homebuilder for a purchase price of $179.3 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments plus the assumption of debt of approximately $69.3 million, which was refinanced with the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility. In 2021, Hanover closed 632 homes at an average selling price of $328,323 and ended the year with more than 4,100 lots under control, 469 homes in backlog worth more than $200 million and 18 active communities. In 2021, Landsea Homes surpassed the milestone of $1.0 billion in revenues and completed our first year as a public company. We believe our acquisition of Hanover Family Builders is another truly transformative event for the Company, With the closing of this transaction, we have increased our lots under control to more than 12,800 and further accelerated our asset-light strategy by increasing our controlled lots to approximately 50% of our total lot inventory. We have also grown our active community count by more than 50% from our December 31, 2021 year end. This transaction vaults Landsea Homes into one of the leading positions in the Orlando area, a very attractive homebuilding market, and reaffirms our strategy of quickly becoming one of the top homebuilders in the markets we serve. Additionally, Hanover's focus on the more affordable segments of the market aligns strongly with our broader product positioning goals." John Ho, Chief Executive Officer, Landsea Homes. Founded in 2017 by brothers Matt, Steve and Andrew Orosz and homebuilding veteran Colby Franks, Hanover Family Builders began with nine communities in the Orlando region, in Osceola, Lake and Polk counties. Prior to founding Hanover Family Builders, Bill Orosz and the Orosz family had a long homebuilding history in Florida, creating Royal Oak Homes in 2011, which the family sold in 2014. The Orosz family also formed Cambridge Homes in the 1990s before selling it in 2005, when it was one of Central Florida's largest private homebuilders. Over the decades, the various companies have received numerous accolades for their growth rate, customer service and commitment to the community. Builder Advisor Group represented Hanover Family Builders as its broker in this transaction. Hanover Family Builders has established a great reputation for providing wonderful homes and outstanding customer service across Central Florida, Given their strong track record, local market knowledge and long-standing relationships, we believe that Hanover will play an integral role as we expand in this region." John Ho Landsea Homes entered the Florida housing market last year, with the acquisition of Vintage Estate Homes. With that purchase, Landsea Homes began providing homes in the Orlando area, including Palm Bay, Palm Coast, Ormond Beach, Lake Helen, Sorrento, Merritt Island and DeBary. We were very impressed with Landsea Homes' strategic approach and commitment to building great homes with top-tier customer service – values that closely align with ours, Their senior leadership team is experienced and thoughtful, and they have created a culture of integrity that is dedicated to ensuring they provide best-in-class homes in each of their markets. We are honored to join one of the homebuilding industry's rising stars." Hanover Family Builders Co-President, Steve Orosz. In just eight short years, Landsea Homes has grown into one of the premier national homebuilders, with a strong and successful presence in each of their key markets including Arizona, Northern and Southern California, Texas and Florida.
