Commenting on this financing, Larry A. Mizel, MDC's chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We are very pleased that the Company has been able to issue this new debt at the lowest ten-year coupon in the history of homebuilder bond issuance. The proceeds from this issuance will facilitate the previously announced redemption of our 8 3/8% senior notes, which should save approximately $5.4 million per year in future debt service costs."
