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

At its meeting on December 2, 2010, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Douglas Emmett approved the execution of new four year employment agreements for each of Jordan Kaplan, Kenneth Panzer and William Kamer.  The four year term of their existing contracts is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2010 and the new employment agreements will become effective on January 1, 2011.  The compensation and benefits of the officers under their new employment agreements, including salary and annual bonuses, are consistent with their existing compensation, except that (i) the officers will no longer be entitled to a “gross up bonus” in the event of an excise tax being imposed on any excess parachute payments and (ii) a few minor perquisites have been eliminated to simplify their benefits.  The other terms of the employment agreements are unchanged except for minor changes to conform to changes in law and the passage of time.

At the same meeting, the Compensation Committee approved multi-year grants of Long Term Incentive Units under the Company’s 2006 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan, covering 355,661 LTIP Units in the case of Mr. Kaplan and Mr. Panzer, and 94,843 LTIP Units in the case of Mr. Kamer.  These LTIP Units will vest 50% at the end of 2010, and 16.67% at the end of each of the following three years.
