Item 8.01

 Other Events.  

On November 30, 2018, BBX Capital Corporation and certain of its subsidiaries (“BBX”) acquired a fifty percent (50%) membership interest in The Altman Companies, LLC (“Altman Companies”) for $21.6 million from founder Joel Altman. The transaction, which was previously announced on October 19, 2018, includes membership interests in Altman Development Company, Altman-Glenewinkel Construction and Altman Management Company and interests in the managing member of seven multi-family real estate developments. One of the eight developments in which BBX was to acquire an interest was sold prior to the closing of the transaction, which reduced the purchase price from the previously announced $22.7 million to $21.6 million.

As previously disclosed, BBX has also agreed to acquire an additional forty percent (40%) of the membership interests in Altman Companies for $9.4 million in approximately four years. Joel Altman, can also, at his option, require BBX to acquire the remaining ten percent (10%) interest in Altman Companies for $2.4 million.

It is anticipated that BBX and Joel Altman will invest in future projects based on their relative ownership percentages in Altman Companies going forward.

The acquisition is not a significant acquisition as defined by Rule 11-01(b) of Regulation S-X. 

See the Press Release attached as Exhibit 99.1 for additional information regarding the transaction including risks and uncertainties regarding forward looking information all of which is incorporated herein by reference.
