A copy of the Press Release is being furnished hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is hereby incorporated by reference to this Current Report.

Item 5.02Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

As discussions regarding a potential resolution with the SEC (as described in Item 8.01 below) are ongoing, Mr. John C. Shea, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, has notified the Company that he is taking a temporary leave of absence from his duties, with effect from February 9, 2021. On February 9, 2021, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed Mr. Andrew Brophy as the Company’s Acting Principal Accounting Officer with immediate effect. Mr. Brophy, 31, has served as the Company’s Director of Accounting since November 2020 and SEC Reporting Manager since January 2018. Prior to joining the Company in January 2018, Mr. Brophy was a Senior Consultant with financial accounting advisory firm Centri Business Consulting from April 2017 to January 2018, where he managed technical accounting matters for clients and prepared and reviewed periodic filings for SEC registrants. Prior to that, Mr. Brophy was a Division Assistant Controller with Lennar, Inc. from August 2014 to March 2017, where he oversaw all day-to-day accounting operations and financial objectives for a regional top-five homebuilder operating in the Delaware Valley. Mr. Brophy earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Temple University. He began his accounting career as an auditor with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Brophy and any person pursuant to which he was appointed as an executive officer of the Company. Since the beginning of the Company’s last fiscal year, there have been no transactions or proposed transactions by the Company in which Mr. Brophy has had or is to have a direct or indirect material interest, and there are no family relationships between Mr. Brophy and any of the Company’s other executive officers or directors.

Item 8.01Other Events.


The Press Release also announced the Company's fourth quarter 2020 quarterly cash dividend of $0.20625 per common share, payable on March 26, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 26, 2021.


As previously disclosed, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has been conducting an investigation into the Company’s earnings per share (“EPS”) calculation practices. Following receipt of a letter from the SEC in November 2017 regarding its inquiry into those practices and a subpoena in March 2018, the Company authorized its outside counsel to conduct an internal investigation, under the direction of the Company’s Audit Committee, into matters related to the SEC subpoena. This investigation was completed in March 2019, and the Company has continued to cooperate with the SEC’s investigation and document requests since then. The Company and the SEC have recently commenced discussions regarding a potential resolution of the investigation, which focuses on periods prior to 2018.
