HCI Group, Inc. (NYSE:HCI) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Story continues below

Our principal operating subsidiary, Homeowners Choice Property& Casualty Insurance Company, Inc., has entered into an Assumption Agreement, effective November9, 2017, with Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, an entity created by the Florida Legislature. The agreement sets forth the terms by which our insurance subsidiary may assume policies from Citizens when such assumptions are approved by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation. The Assumption Agreement appears as Exhibit 10.24 to this Form 8-K.

Item 1.01 Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On December1, 2016, our compensation committee established a plan to award cash bonuses to certain of our executives, including “named executive officers,” as set forth below.

Name and office

Cash Bonus

Mark Harmsworth, chief financial officer

$ 100,000

Anthony Saravanos, president—real estate division

$ 90,000

Karin Coleman, vice president—corporate services

$ 90,000

Andrew L. Graham, general counsel

$ 90,000

Mr.Harmsworth was entitled to a 2017 cash bonus of not less than $100,000 under his executive employment agreement. The other discretionary bonuses are less than those awarded in 2016. Our chief executive officer, Paresh Patel, was not awarded a discretionary cash bonus.

Earlier in 2017, the compensation committee, with the assistance of Willis Towers Watson, a leading compensation advisory firm, established a comprehensive compensation plan for Mr.Patel which included an annual salary, equity based awards and an annual performance-based cash bonus. The committee opted not to exercise discretion to award a cash bonus to Mr.Patel outside of that comprehensive plan. Given the losses caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017, it is extremely unlikely Mr.Patel will meet the performance measures contained within the cash bonus portion of the plan and, accordingly, Mr.Patel will not receive a cash bonus for 2017.
