Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On December 22, 2010, Mr. Dan A. Emmett, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Douglas Emmett, Inc. (“DEI”), and an entity affiliated with Mr. Emmett entered into sales plans with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. The plans are intended to comply with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Subject to certain conditions, the plans provide for the sale of up to an aggregate of 140,000 shares of DEI’s common stock each month from December 2010 through December 2011.

The shares are being sold for estate planning purposes. The maximum number of shares to be sold under the plans represents approximately 10% of the common stock equivalents of DEI beneficially owned by Mr. Emmett. Mr. Emmett will have no control over the timing of the sales of shares under the plans, and there can be no assurance that any shares will be sold under the plans.

The information being furnished pursuant to this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed “filed” for any purpose, including for the purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
