Beazer Homes Responds To FBI Statements On Federal Investigation Into Possible Mortgage Fraud
In response to statements made by a representative of the FBI on the possibility of a federal investigation of the Company in connection with alleged mortgage fraud, Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (NYSE: BZH) has the following response:
Beazer Homes has been in contact with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and, at this time, there have been no allegations of any wrongdoing. Instead, Beazer Homes has received a request for documents generally relating to its mortgage business.
We are fully cooperating with this request and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We believe this request was fueled by the articles recently published by the Charlotte Observer. Based on our internal investigations to date, we have found no evidence to support the allegations in these articles.
We have further been told by the U.S. Attorney’s Office that the statements by the FBI and published by Business Week were not authorized and should not have been made.
Beazer Homes has a long established commitment to managing and conducting business in an honest, ethical and lawful manner.
