ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

As previously disclosed, on June 13, 2014 (the “Effective Date”), Meritage Homes Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an amended and restated unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent and the other lenders named therein. Since the Effective Date, the Revolving Facility has been amended from time to time to, among other things, increase the aggregate commitment to $625.0 million, consisting of $565 million of Class A commitments maturing in July 2021 and $60.0 million of Class B commitments maturing in July 2019.

On January 25, 2018, the sole Class B commitment lender assigned all of its rights and obligations under the Revolving Facility to SunTrust Bank (“SunTrust”). Subsequent to such assignment, SunTrust converted the entire $60 million Class B commitment to a Class A commitment. As a result, the entire $625 million aggregate commitment now matures in July 2021.
