Item1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On December30, 2016, we entered into an executive employment
agreement with our chief executive officer, Paresh Patel. The
agreement calls for a four year term of employment beginning
January1, 2017 and an annual base salary of $950,000. The
foregoing summary of our executive employment agreement does not
purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its
entirety by, the full text of the agreement, which appears as
Exhibit 99.1 to this form 8-K.

Item5.02 Compensatory Arrangements of Certain

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.

Richard R. Allen, chief financial officer

$ 100,000

Anthony Saravanos, presidentreal estate division

$ 200,000

Andrew L. Graham, general counsel

$ 100,000

Except in the case of Mr.Saravanos, these discretionary bonuses
are substantially less than those awarded in 2015. In considering
these awards, the compensation committee gave considerable weight
to the companys expected net income for 2016 as compared with
2015. However, the compensation committee also considered the
advancement of numerous strategic initiatives during 2016,
including initiatives in technology, real estate and flood
insurance. The compensation committee gave consideration also to
its determination that the companys response to two hurricanes in
2016 was well planned and well executed.

The matters discussed in Item1.01 are hereby incorporated into
this Item5.02.
