KB HOME (NYSE:KBH) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 3.03 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Item 3.03 below is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

On April 12, 2018, KB Home entered into an Amended and Restated Rights Agreement with Computershare Inc., as Rights Agent, following the approval thereof by KB Home’s stockholders at its 2018 Annual Meeting held on April 12, 2018 (“2018 Annual Meeting”). The Amended and Restated Rights Agreement amends and restates the Rights Agreement, dated as of January 22, 2009 (“Prior Rights Agreement”), by and between KB Home and a predecessor of the Rights Agent, Mellon Investor Services LLC.

As with the Prior Rights Agreement, the Amended and Restated Rights Agreement is intended to help protect KB Home’s net operating losses and other deferred tax assets from an “ownership change” under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Amended and Restated Rights Agreement extended the latest possible expiration date of the rights issued to the Prior Rights Agreement to the close of business on April 30, 2021, and made certain other related changes. Otherwise, the Amended and Restated Rights Agreement’s terms are substantively the same as those of the Prior Rights Agreement.

A copy of the Amended and Restated Rights Agreement has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission

as Exhibit 4.1 to an Amended Registration Statement on Form 8-A/A dated April 13, 2018. The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Rights Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to its full text, which is incorporated herein by reference.
