Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On November 19, 2012, we entered into a warrant purchase agreement with the bankruptcy trustee of Glencoe Acquisition, Inc. to purchase from Glencoe Acquisition, Inc. 1,000,000 of our own warrants for $4,000,000. Two warrants entitle the holder to purchase one share of our common stock for $9.10 per share. We issued the warrants in private placement to Glencoe Acquisition, Inc. in connection with our acquisition of policies from HomeWise in 2011. The warrant purchase agreement is subject to approval by the bankruptcy court. We have delivered a deposit of $500,000. The balance is due at closing, which is scheduled to take place one day following the bankruptcy court’s approval. A copy of the agreement appears as exhibit 10.8 to this form 8-K.
