Mr. Levan receives an annual base salary and has the opportunity to receive annual bonuses and long-term incentives based on criteria determined by the Compensation Committee or otherwise at the discretion of the Compensation Committee.

Mr. Levan had an opportunity to receive an annual bonus and long-term incentives of up to $4,275,000 based primarily on the Company’s EBITDA. As

8


previously described, Mr. Levan received bonuses totaling $1,900,000, 50% of which was a discretionary cash bonus approved by the Compensation Committee based on a subjective evaluation of the performance of Mr. Levan and the Company, including the Company’s EBITDA and actions taken to navigate, with a view towards minimizing the impact of, the COVID-19 pandemic, and 50% of which was approved by the Compensation Committee under the Company’s Executive Leadership Incentive Plan for 2020 based primarily on the Company’s EBITDA. Subject to certain exceptions, including in the case of Messrs. Tonkin and Lopez (each of whom received guaranteed bonuses under the Executive Leadership Incentive Plan for 2020), the Compensation Committee approved for all participants in the Executive Leadership Incentive Plan, including Mr. Levan, to receive a bonus equal to 50% of their target bonus under the plan for 2020. For 2021, Mr. Levan has the opportunity to receive annual bonuses and long-term incentives, including under the Executive Leadership Incentive Plan, of up to $4,275,000 based primarily on the Company’s EBITDA. He may also receive discretionary bonuses from time to time upon the approval of the Compensation Committee based on a subjective evaluation of his and the Company’s performance as well as such other factors as the Compensation Committee may consider.

Mr. Levan also serves as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BVH. As previously described, BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital, which was completed on September 30, 2020, resulted in BVH becoming solely a holding company of Bluegreen. BVH currently holds approximately 93% of the Company’s outstanding common stock.

In addition to Mr. Levan, the executive officers of BVH are John E. Abdo, who serves as Vice Chairman of the Company BVH, and Raymond S. Lopez, who serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company and BVH. For 2020, Messrs. Alan Levan, Abdo and Lopez received total compensation from BVH totaling approximately $6,535,781, $9,038,205 and $332,692, respectively. Effective September 30, 2020 in connection with BVH’s spinoff, Mr. Alan Levan, Mr. Abdo and Mr. Lopez agreed to reduced annual base salaries of $200,000 to each of Mr. Alan Levan and Mr. Abdo, and $100,000 to Mr. Lopez under their respective employment agreements with BVH. Going forward, it is expected that BVH’s executive officers will receive significantly all of their compensation for their services on behalf of BVH and the Company from the Company.

Effective October 1, 2020, at which time Mr. Abdo’s service as Vice Chairman of the Company changed from serving in a non-executive capacity to an executive capacity and the Company’s Compensation Committee approved an initial annual base salary for Mr. Abdo of $950,000. In addition to his base salary, for 2021, Mr. Abdo has the opportunity to receive annual bonuses and long-term incentives, including under the Executive Leadership Incentive Plan, of up to $4,275,000 based primarily on the Company’s EBITDA.

Mr. Lopez currently receives an annual base salary from the Company of $675,000. In addition to his base salary, for 2021, Mr. Lopez has the opportunity to receive annual bonuses and long-term incentives, including under the Executive Leadership Incentive Plan, of up to $1,800,000 based primarily on the Company’s EBITDA.

Like Mr. Levan, each of Mr. Abdo and Mr. Lopez may also receive discretionary bonuses from time to time upon the approval of the Compensation Committee based on a subjective evaluation of the applicable executive and the Company’s performance as well as such other factors as the Compensation Committee may consider.

The Company has been in discussions with Mr. Lopez regarding an employment agreement with severance termination provisions substantially similar to those contained in Mr. Tonkin’s employment agreement (as described below), however such employment agreement has not been finalized.

Employment Agreement with Dustin Tonkin

The Company has an employment agreement with Dustin Tonkin, the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. Under the terms of the employment agreement, Mr. Tonkin receives an annual base salary as determined and adjusted by the Compensation Committee from time to time. Mr. Tonkin’s annual base salary for 2020 was $425,000. Pursuant to his employment agreement entered into upon joining the Company in 2019, Mr. Tonkin received a $1,000,000 signing bonus payable in five equal annual installments of $200,000 each, with the first two annual installments having been paid in 2019 and 2020. Under the employment agreement, Mr. Tonkin may receive an annual incentive bonus of a percentage of his then-current annual base salary. Such percentage is approved annually by the Compensation Committee and, for 2020, Mr. Tonkin’s targeted annual incentive bonus was 165% of his annual base salary. The annual incentive bonus is based on the achievement of targeted performance measures approved by the Compensation Committee, which, for 2020, included the Company’s EBITDA, System-wide sales

9


of VOIs and certain other performance metrics. Payment of the annual incentive bonus is subject to approval by the Compensation Committee. Based on the Company’s EBITDA and results with respect to the other performance metrics, including System-wide sales of VOIs, the Compensation Committee approved an annual incentive bonus for 2020 of approximately $1,153,000 for Mr. Tonkin. For 2021, Mr. Tonkin’s targeted annual incentive bonus is 150% of his 2021 annual base salary of $475,000.

In addition to his annual incentive bonus opportunity, Mr. Tonkin also participates in the Company’s Executive Leadership Incentive Plan pursuant to which bonuses are generally paid primarily based on the Company’s EBITDA. Pursuant to his employment agreement, Mr. Tonkin received a guaranteed bonus of $700,000 under the Executive Leadership Incentive Plan for 2020.

Mr. Tonkin may also receive additional bonuses from time to time as approved by the Compensation Committee, including special discretionary cash bonuses.

Mr. Tonkin’s employment agreement will continue until terminated. In addition, if the employment agreement is terminated by the Company for “Cause” or by Mr. Tonkin without “Good Reason” (as such terms are defined in the employment agreement), Mr. Tonkin will be entitled to receive any unpaid salary and benefits accrued through the date of termination. If the employment agreement is terminated by the Company without “Cause” or by the Mr. Tonkin for “Good Reason,” then Mr. Tonkin will be entitled to receive, in addition to any unpaid salary and benefits accrued through the date of termination, a severance payment in an amount equal to 1.0 times (or 1.5 times if the termination occurs within two years after a “Change in Control” (as defined in the employment agreement)) the sum of  (a) his annual base salary then in effect and (b) the average annual incentive bonus paid to him during the two years prior to the termination. In addition, if the employment agreement is terminated by the Company without “Cause” or by Mr. Tonkin for “Good Reason” after the last day of the performance period with respect to his annual incentive bonus but prior to payment thereof, Mr. Tonkin will be entitled to receive such annual incentive bonus. Further, in the event of a termination by the Company without “Cause” or a termination by Mr. Tonkin for “Good Reason” at any time, the Company will pay Mr. Tonkin’s COBRA premiums for 12 months following the date of termination. In addition, upon his death or “Disability” (as defined in his employment agreement), Mr. Tonkin or his estate, as the case may be, will be entitled to receive, in addition to any unpaid salary and benefits accrued through the date of death or termination, the pro rata portion of his annual incentive bonus for the applicable year based generally on the number of days he was employed during the year. These severance payments and benefits are conditioned upon Mr. Tonkin executing a general release in favor of the Company, as well as his compliance with certain restrictive covenants set forth in his employment agreement, including confidentiality obligations and non-solicit, non-disparagement and non-interference covenants.

Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control

The Company does not currently have in place any agreement with any of the Named Executive Officers or Mr. Abdo that provides for payments or other benefits to them at, following, or in connection with their retirement or termination of service, or a change in control of the Company, other than as set forth above with respect to Mr. Tonkin under his employment agreement. However, as previously described, the Company has been in discussions with Mr. Lopez regarding an employment agreement with severance termination provisions substantially similar to those contained in Mr. Tonkin’s employment agreement. The Company may also enter into employment agreements with Messrs. Levan and Abdo. See also “401(k) Plan” below.

401(k) Plan

The Company maintains a retirement plan for the benefit of its employees. The 401(k) plan is intended to qualify as a tax-qualified 401(k) plan so that contributions to the 401(k) plan, and income earned on such contributions are not taxable to participants until withdrawn or distributed from the 401(k) plan. The 401(k) plan provides that each participant may contribute up to 100% of his or her pre-tax compensation, subject to an annual statutory limit. Participants who are at least 50 years old can also contribute additional amounts based on statutory limits for “catch-up” contributions. Under the 401(k) plan, each employee is fully vested in his or her deferred salary contributions. Employee contributions are held and invested by the 401(k) plan’s trustee as directed by participants. The 401(k) plan allows for discretionary matching of employee contributions. For 2020, the Company made a basic matching contribution equal to 100% of each participant’s contributions not exceeding 3% of such participant’s compensation, plus 50% of the participant’s contributions in excess of 3% but not in excess of 5% of the participant’s compensation.

10


The Company may also make additional discretionary matching contributions not to exceed 4% of each participant’s compensation.

Outstanding Equity Awards at Year-End 2020

None of the Named Executive Officers nor Mr. Abdo held any equity or equity-based awards with respect to the Company as of December 31, 2020.

Director Compensation

The compensation policy for the Company’s non-employee directors (which are directors who are not employees of the Company or BVH) is designed to compensate directors for their services on the Company’s Board of Directors and its committees in an amount which the Board believes to be fair based on the work and time commitment required as well as the size and scope of the Company, and in a manner which is simple and transparent. In connection with BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital on September 30, 2020 which resulted in BVH becoming solely a holding company for the Company, all of BVH’s directors are also directors of the Company and going forward since September 30, 2020, those directors have received, or are expected to receive, most of their compensation for service on the Boards and committees of BVH and the Company from the Company.

The Company’s non-employee directors are currently compensated for their service on the Company’s Board of Directors and its committees through cash fees. Prior to September 30, 2020, each non-employee director received $70,000 in cash fees for his service on the Board. In addition, members of the Audit Committee, other than its Chairman, received $10,000 in cash annually. The Chairman of the Audit Committee received $15,000 in cash annually. The Chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Chairman of the Compensation Committee each received $3,500 in cash annually. Effective September 30, 2020, the annual cash fees payable to the Company’s non-employee directors (other than the fees payable to the Chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Chairman of the Compensation Committee, each of which remained at $3,500 annually) were increased as follows. Each non-employee director is now currently entitled to receive $100,000 in cash fees for his service on the Board. In addition, members of the Audit Committee, other than its Chairman, are entitled to receive $16,000 in cash annually. The Chairman of the Audit Committee is entitled to receive $20,000 in cash annually. Other members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and the Compensation Committee do not receive additional compensation for their service on those committees and directors do not receive additional compensation for attendance at Board or committee meetings. In addition, directors who are employed by the Company or BVH do not receive compensation from the Company for their service on the Board.

(1)Mr. Becker was also a non-employee director of BVH until he resigned from BVH’s Board of Directors and became a director of BBX Capital in connection with BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital on September 30, 2020. Mr. Becker received $87,000 from BVH for his service on BVH’s Board of Directors and its committees for the year ended December 31, 2020. Mr. Becker received $30,000 from BBX Capital for his service on BBX Capital’s Board of Directors and its committees during the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

(2)Messrs. Cirillo, Dornbush, Levan, Levy and Nicholson are also non-employee directors of BVH. Mr. Cirillo was appointed to BVH’s Board of Directors on September 30, 2020 in connection with BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital. In addition, Messrs. Dornbush, Levy and Nicholson were appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors during October 2020 following the spin-off. Messrs. Cirillo, Dornbush, Levan, Levy and Nicholson received $2,875, $78,375, $2,500, $93,750 and $90,375, respectively, for their service on BVH’s Board of Directors and its committees for the year ended December 31, 2020.

(3)Messrs.

As a result, Messrs. Levan and Wise have been considered “non-employee directors” of the Company since September 30, 2020 (when they ceased serving as executives of BVH) and, accordingly, have received director fees for their service on the Company’s Board of Directors since that date. Mr. Jarett Levan remains a director of BVH, as described above.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

BVH currently owns approximately 93% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock. Alan B. Levan, the Company’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, John E. Abdo, the Company’s Vice Chairman, Jarett S. Levan, a director of the Company, and Seth M. Wise, a director of the Company, may be deemed to control both BVH by virtue of their ownership of shares of BVH’s Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock representing a majority of BVH’s voting power and the agreements between them. In addition, Mr. Alan Levan is the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of BVH, Mr. Abdo is the Vice Chairman of BVH, Mr. Jarett Levan is a director and the former President of BVH, and Mr. Wise is a former director and Executive Vice President of BVH. Further, Raymond S. Lopez, the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, is also Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of BVH. See “Item 11. Executive Compensation” above for information regarding the compensation of Mr. Alan Levan, Mr. Abdo and Mr. Lopez. Additionally, Lawrence A. Cirillo, Darwin Dornbush, Joel Levy and William R. Nicholson are directors of both the Company and BVH.

Mr. Alan Levan, Mr. Abdo, Mr. Jarett Levan and Mr. Wise may also be deemed to control BBX Capital, the former wholly owned subsidiary of BVH that was spun-off on September 30, 2020, by virtue of their ownership of shares of BBX Capital’s Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock representing a majority of BBX Capital’s voting power. Mr. Alan Levan is the Chairman of BBX Capital, Mr. Abdo is the Vice Chairman of BBX Capital, Mr. Jarett Levan is the President and a director of BBX Capital, and Mr. Wise is an Executive Vice President and director of BBX Capital. In addition, Norman H. Becker, a director of the Company, served on BVH’s Board of Directors until he resigned as a director of BVH and became a director New BBX Capital in connection with BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital.

In May 2015, the Company and its subsidiaries entered into an Agreement to Allocate Consolidated Income Tax Liability and Benefits (the “Consolidated Tax Agreement”) with BVH and its other subsidiaries at the time, including BBX Capital and its subsidiaries, pursuant to which, among other customary terms and conditions, the parties agreed to file consolidated federal tax returns. Under the agreement, the parties calculate their respective income tax liabilities and attributes as if each of them was a separate filer. If any tax attributes are used by another party to the agreement to offset its tax liability, the party providing the benefit will receive an amount for the tax benefits realized. The Company did not make any payments under the agreement during 2020. As of December 31, 2020, $1.0 million was due to the Company from BVH pursuant to the Agreement. The Consolidated Tax Agreement was terminated with respect to BBX Capital and its subsidiaries in connection with BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital on September 30, 2020.

In April 2015, pursuant to a Loan Agreement and Promissory Note, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company provided an $80.0 million loan to BVH. Amounts outstanding bore interest at a rate of 6% per annum until April 17, 2020, at which time the interest rate was decreased to 4% per annum. Interest only payments were required on a quarterly basis, with all outstanding amounts becoming due and payable at maturity. In March 2020, the Loan Agreement and Promissory Note was amended to extend the maturity date from April 17, 2020 to April 17, 2021. During August 2020, BVH repaid the loan in full. The Company recognized $2.5 million of interest income on the loan to BVH for the year ended December 31, 2020.

The Company paid or reimbursed BVH $1.5 million during 2020 for management advisory, risk management, administrative and other services. No amounts were accrued for such services as of December 31, 2020. BVH paid or reimbursed the Company $0.2 million for other shared services during 2020. During the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company paid BBX Capital. $0.1 million for administrative and other services and $0.1 million was accrued for payment to BBX Capital for such services as of December 31, 2020.

During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company paid Abdo Companies, Inc. $38,000 in exchange for certain management services. John E. Abdo, Vice Chairman of the Company and BVH, is the principal shareholder and Chief Executive Officer of Abdo Companies, Inc.

Director Independence

The Company’s Board of Directors has determined that James R. Allmand, III, Norman H. Becker, Lawrence A. Cirillo, Darwin Dornbush, Joel Levy, Mark A. Nerenhausen, William R. Nicholson, Arnold Sevell and Orlando

14


Sharpe, who together comprise a majority of the Board, are independent under applicable rules and regulations of the SEC and the listing standards of the NYSE. The Board made its independence determinations based on a review of transactions and relationships between each director or his affiliates, on the one hand, and members of the Company’s senior management or their affiliates, on the other hand, as well as transactions and relationships between each director or any member of his immediate family, on the one hand, and the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including BVH and BBX Capital, on the other hand.

To assist the Board in making its independence determinations, the Board adopted the following categorical standards of relationships that, in the Board’s opinion, do not constitute material relationships that impair a director’s independence: (i) serving on third party boards of directors with other members of the Board; (ii) payments or charitable gifts by the Company to entities with which a director is an executive officer or employee where such payments do not exceed the greater of $1 million annually or 2% of such entity’s consolidated gross revenues for the applicable year; and (iii) investments by directors in common with each other or the Company. Accordingly, service on the Board of Directors of BVH and BBX Capital does not, in and of itself, constitute a material relationship that would impair director independence. Independent directors Cirillo, Dornbush, Levy and Nicholson serve on BVH’s Board of Directors and its committees.

(1)Includes fees for services related to the company's annual financial statement audit and review of quarterly financial statements.

(2)Includes fees for the financial statement audits of one of the Company’s subsidiaries and fees for other audit procedures related to the Company’s securitizations.

All audit-related services set forth above were pre-approved by the Audit Committee, which concluded that the provision of such services by Grant Thornton was compatible with the maintenance of such firm’s independence in the conduct of its auditing functions.

Under its charter, the Audit Committee must review and pre-approve both audit and permitted non-audit services provided by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and shall not engage the independent registered public accounting firm to perform any non-audit services prohibited by law or regulation. Each year, the independent registered public accounting firm’s retention to audit the Company’s financial statements, including the associated fee, is approved by the Audit Committee. Under its current practices, the Audit Committee does not regularly evaluate potential engagements of the independent registered public accounting firm and approve or reject such potential engagements. At each Audit Committee meeting, the Audit Committee receives updates on the services actually provided by the independent registered public accounting firm, and management may present additional services for pre-approval. The Audit Committee has delegated to the Chairman of the Audit Committee the authority to evaluate and approve engagements on behalf of the Audit Committee in the event that a need arises for pre-approval between regular Audit Committee meetings. If the Chairman so approves any such engagements, he will report that approval to the full Audit Committee at the next Audit Committee meeting.
