This Amendment No. 6 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements Items 4, 11 and 12 in the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, filed on June 19, 2007 (the “Schedule TO”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission by LSF5 Accredited Merger Co., Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Purchaser”) and LSF5 Accredited Investments, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Parent”), as amended on July 3, 2007, July 17, 2007, July 30, 2007, August 10, 2007 and August 14, 2007.

Except as otherwise indicated in this Amendment, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Schedule TO.

Item 4. Terms of the Transaction

The information set forth in the section of the Offer to Purchase entitled “Terms of the Offer” is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following paragraph at the end of the “Terms of the Offer” section therein:

After the close of business on August 14, 2007, Accredited issued a press release in which it effectively announced that it satisfied the Minimum Tender Condition. As of the close of business on August 15, 2007, Parent had received a preliminary number of tenders, subject to withdrawal, representing approximately 22,984,466 of the outstanding shares of Accredited. The shares tendered at that time included approximately 91.5 percent of the outstanding shares of Accredited’s common stock.

Item 11. Additional Information

The information set forth in the section of the Offer to Purchase entitled “Certain Legal Matters; Regulatory Approvals” is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following paragraph at the end of the “Litigation” section therein:

On August 13, 2007, Accredited Home Lenders Holding Co. (“Accredited”) filed a complaint against Lone Star Fund V (U.S.), L.P. (“Lone Star”), Parent and Purchaser (together with Parent, the “Loan Star Parties”) in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, County of New Castle. The complaint alleges repudiation and breach of the Merger Agreement by the Lone Star Parties and breach of the Guaranty Letter by Lone Star. Accredited seeks specific performance to close the tender offer for the outstanding common stock of Accredited and to complete the merger with Accredited. On August 14, 2007, the parties agreed to work on an expedited schedule for the proceedings and Vice Chancellor Stephen P. Lamb of the Delaware Chancery Court scheduled trial for September 26-28, 2007. The Lone Star Parties believe strongly that Accredited’s suit is without merit and will defend themselves vigorously. The ultimate outcome of this matter is not presently determinable. The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complaint which is attached hereto as Exhibit (a)(2)(F). Stockholders should read the complaint in its entirety for a more complete description of the allegations.

Item 12. Exhibits

 

(a)(2)(F)   Complaint filed by Accredited in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, County of New Castle on August 13, 2007.
