On June 13, 2011, Regency Centers Corporation (the “Company” or “Regency”) adopted a Third Amendment (the “Third Amendment”) to the Regency Centers Corporation 2005 Deferred Compensation Plan (“2005 Plan”) and a Second Amendment (the “Second Amendment”) to the Regency Centers Corporation Amended and Restated Deferred Compensation Plan (the “1996 Plan”). The 2005 Plan and the 1996 Plan (which was suspended with respect to new deferrals but continues to operate for the purpose of administering amounts deferred and vested under it prior to January 1, 2005) allow plan participants to elect to defer all or a portion of their director fees, bonus or incentive compensation (which may be cash or equity awards) or gains related to the exercise of their Regency stock options to be invested in certain vehicles available under the plans, including a share program in which deferred amounts are invested in shares of phantom Regency common stock. The Third Amendment and Second Amendment each provide that after June 20, 2011, participants are prohibited from shifting investments between the trust for Regency common stock and the trust for investments other than Regency common stock, and any participant balances invested in Regency common stock after June 20, 2011 may be distributed only in the form of Regency common stock.
The Third Amendment and the Second Amendment are filed herewith and the terms thereof are incorporated herein by reference.
