ITEM 1.01. ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

On January 7, 2013, M.D.C. Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries entered into an Underwriting Agreement with Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (the “Underwriter”), in connection with the offering and sale of an aggregate principal amount of $250 million of 6.000% Senior Notes due 2043 (the “Notes”). The offering is being made pursuant to the Company’s registration statement on Form S-3ASR (Registration No. 333-177680), as supplemented by the prospectus supplement dated January 7, 2013.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, and customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriter, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, other obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

The Company expects to receive net proceeds, after the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses, of approximately $247.5 million. The offering of the Notes is expected to close on January 10, 2013.

The Underwriter is a full service financial institution engaged in various activities, which may include securities trading, commercial and investment banking, financial advisory, investment management, principal investment, hedging, financing and brokerage activities. The Underwriter and its affiliates have in the past performed commercial banking, investment banking and advisory services for the Company from time to time for which they have received customary fees and reimbursement of expenses and may, from time to time, engage in transactions with and perform services for the Company in the ordinary course of their business for which they may receive customary fees and reimbursement of expenses. In the ordinary course of their various business activities, the Underwriter and its affiliates may make or hold a broad array of investments and actively trade debt and equity securities (or related derivative securities) and financial instruments (which may include bank loans and/or credit default swaps) for their own account and for the accounts of their customers and may at any time hold long and short positions in such securities and instruments. Such investment and securities activities may involve the Company’s securities and instruments. For example, Citibank, N.A., an affiliate of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., is the issuing bank under one of our letter of credit agreements.
