KB Home Increases Quarterly Dividend

Company Raises Quarterly Cash Dividend 33% to $.20 Per Share

KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced that its Board of Directors approved an increase in the Company’s quarterly cash dividend on its common stock to $.20 per share from $.15 per share. This 33% increase results in an annualized dividend rate of $.80 per share, representing a yield of approximately 1.5%, based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on July 13, 2023.

In addition, the Board of Directors declared the next quarterly cash dividend, at the $.20 per share rate, will be payable on August 17, 2023, to stockholders of record on August 3, 2023.

“Our business is generating a significant level of operating cash flow and, as we continue to expand both our scale and our profitability, we expect our cash generation capabilities to increase as well. With a balanced approach to capital allocation and a solid balance sheet, we expect to deploy this cash toward land acquisition and development, and a return of capital to our stockholders. An important element of this cash deployment is our quarterly cash dividend, which we have paid consistently each quarter for close to 35 years. We remain focused on driving long-term stockholder value and our Board’s approval of a meaningful increase in our dividend enhances our value creation,” said Jeffrey Mezger, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

What sets KB Home apart is our focus on building strong, personal relationships with every customer — from those buying their first home to experienced buyers — so they have a real partner in the homebuying process. No two KB homes are the same. That’s because every home is uniquely built for each customer, at a price that fits their budget.
