Item 5.05.

Amendments to the Registrants Code of Ethics,
or Waiver of a Provision of the Code of Ethics.
On February 28, 2017, the Board of Directors of UCP, Inc. (the
Company) adopted an amended and restated Code of Business Conduct
and Ethics (the Amended Code), as part of an annual review
. In addition to various non-substantive changes,
the Amended Code clarifies the Companys policy relating to the
receipt of gifts and entertainment that could influence, or be
perceived to influence, business decisions on behalf of the
Company. Prior to the amendment, employees of the Company were
strictly prohibited from accepting any cash or cash equivalents,
including gift cards, and were mandated to promptly return any
such gift to the donor. Without limiting any other gift
prohibitions, the Amended Code eliminates this strict prohibition
and permits employees to receive gift certificates or gift cards,
so long as not in excess of $100 from any single individual or
entity doing business with the Company during any calendar year.
In addition, the Company included a record retention policy,
which outlines the reasons for a retention policy, the types of
documents covered and compliance.
The foregoing description of the Amended Code is qualified in its
entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended Code, which
is filed as Exhibit 14.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated
herein by reference.
