Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On August 29, 2013, we entered into a Restricted Stock Award Contract with Anthony Saravanos, who is a director of the company and the president of our Greenleaf Capital real estate division (See Item 8.01 Other Events below). Under the contract, Mr. Saravanos was awarded 10,000 common shares. The shares are subject to (i) forfeiture upon termination of service as an employee and (ii) restrictions on transfer.

The shares were granted pursuant to our 2012 Omnibus Incentive Plan.

He replaces Sanjay Madhu who resigned in June after serving in that position since its inception. Greenleaf Capital manages the company’s real estate holdings and operations.

Mr. Saravanos has considerable real estate experience. Since 2005, he has been vice president of The Boardwalk Company, a full-service commercial real estate company located in Palm Harbor, Florida. Since 2001, he has been managing partner of several commercial property entities with a combined total of 13 properties in Florida and New York.
