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

(e)    Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Kilroy Realty Corporation (the “Company”) and Kilroy Realty, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) are parties to an Employment Agreement, as amended and restated as of December 31, 2015, with Jeffrey C. Hawken, the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company and the Operating Partnership (the “Employment Agreement”). In February 2019, the Executive Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors approved an amendment to the Employment Agreement to extend its term through March 1, 2020. On January 31, 2020, the Committee approved a further extension of the term of the Employment Agreement by one year through March 1, 2021. Except for this extension of the term, the Employment Agreement continues in effect on its existing terms, and Mr. Hawken’s base salary level, and annual target level of cash and equity incentives (as a percentage of base salary), under the Employment Agreement have not changed from the levels currently in effect.

Item 8.01    Other Events

The Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors made the following determinations with respect to the structure of the Company’s 2020 executive compensation program:

Short-Term Incentives (Annual Cash Bonuses)
The Committee simplified the number of metrics to be used in evaluating 2020 performance to promote a focused alignment of financial goals with Company strategy, with goal weightings to vary between the executive officers based on each executive’s area of responsibility
An ESG-focused category was included in the 2020 metrics with goals including establishment of carbon-neutral operations by the end of 2020, achievement of LEED certifications on new development, annual progress on human capital initiatives (including employee engagement, talent development and diversity), and implementation and efficacy of in-season and off-season stockholder outreach
Long-Term Incentives (Annual Equity Awards)
100% of the equity awards granted to the CEO in 2020 included performance-based vesting conditions and 75% of the 2020 equity awards for other members of executive management included performance-based vesting conditions
For the portion of the 2020 equity awards subject to performance-based vesting conditions, to further emphasize performance, the modifiers for above- or below-target relative total shareholder return (TSR) and debt to EBITDA ratio performance for the three-year performance period (2020-2022) were adjusted (when compared to the Company’s annual equity awards granted in 2019) so that the maximum performance modifier with respect to the portion of the awards corresponding to each of these measures is 150% (175% for the CEO’s award) of the target level, and the modifier for attaining the threshold level of performance was reduced to 50% (25% for the CEO’s award) of the target level

Additionally, the Committee has confirmed that there is no current intent to provide any one-time special equity grants to the existing management team in the course of the Company’s ordinary operations.
