On December 20, 2010, the compensation committee of the board of directors of Roberts Realty Investors, Inc. reviewed the executive officers’ compensation for the previous 24 months. After reviewing the results that were attained during 2009 and 2010 by Mr. Charles S. Roberts, our President, the compensation committee approved a $115,000 bonus for the specific achievements accomplished in 2009 and a $125,000 bonus for the achievements accomplished in 2010. The compensation committee took into account Mr. Roberts’ efforts in leading (a) our renewals and extensions of various maturing loans in the total amount of $17.4 million in a volatile credit environment and a deteriorating real estate market and (b) our sale of a retail center and a land parcel for the $12.0 million of debt secured by those properties. The compensation committee also considered that Mr. Roberts has not received an increase in his annual salary since January 2007, and that we have never provided him with any employee benefits such as medical and life insurance, retirement plan contributions, deferred compensation, vacations or holidays. Mr. Roberts also does not receive any auto allowance or reimbursement for mileage.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be filed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
