Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 7, 2020, Forestar Group Inc. (“Forestar”) entered into an equity distribution agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Mizuho Securities USA LLC, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, TD Securities (USA) LLC, Fifth Third Securities, Inc., BofA Securities, Inc. and BTIG, LLC (each, a “Sales Agent” and collectively, the “Sales Agents”) with respect to the offering and sale from time to time through the Sales Agents, as Forestar’s sales agents, of shares of Forestar’s common stock, par value $1.00 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $100 million (the “Shares”). Sales of the Shares, if any, will be made by means of ordinary brokers’ transactions through the facilities of the New York Stock Exchange at market prices, in block transactions or as otherwise agreed between Forestar and the Sales Agents. Under the terms of the Equity Distribution Agreement, Forestar may also sell Shares from time to time to a Sales Agent as principal for its own account at a price to be agreed upon at the time of sale. The Equity Distribution Agreement provides that each Sales Agent, when it is acting as Forestar’s sales agent, will be entitled to compensation of up to 2% of the gross sales price of the Shares sold through such Sales Agent, depending on the number of Shares sold. Forestar has no obligation to offer or sell any Shares under the Equity Distribution Agreement, and may at any time suspend offers and sales under the Equity Distribution Agreement.

In the ordinary course of business, certain of the Sales Agents or their respective affiliates have provided and may in the future provide commercial, financial advisory or investment banking services for Forestar and its subsidiaries for which they have received or will receive customary compensation.

The Shares will be issued pursuant to Forestar’s shelf registration statement, which became effective October 4, 2018 (Registration No. 333-227505), as supplemented by the prospectus supplement dated August 7, 2020.
