Toll Brothers acquires Seattle area homebuilder

LOS ANGELES (AP) - November 21, 2011

The Horsham, Pa.-based company said Monday it bought Seattle builder CamWest Development LLC for an undisclosed price.

Toll Brothers CEO Douglas Yearley Jr. says the move does not represent the start of a broader expansion push by the builder, which has operations in 20 states.

He says Toll had been eyeing the Seattle market for years.

The CamWest deal gains Toll established operations in a new market and a portfolio of some 1,300 or so land parcels.

Toll says the acquisition will add to its earnings in fiscal year 2012.

The company's shares rose 12 cents to $18.98 in afternoon trading.
