ITEM 5.02(b)
DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS.

On October 17, 2018, Robert I. Toll notified the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Toll Brothers, Inc. (the “Company”) that he will resign as executive chairman of the Board, and resign from all other employee positions with the Company and its subsidiaries, each effective October 31, 2018. In connection with Mr. Toll’s resignation, the Board has elected Mr. Douglas C. Yearley, the Company’s chief executive officer and a member of the Board, to the position of chairman of the Board and has awarded Mr. Toll with an honorary lifetime title of chairman emeritus, each effective on November 1, 2018. Mr. Toll will remain as a member of the Board and will receive the same director fees as the non-executive members of the Board. The Company has also entered into an advisory and non-competition agreement (the “Advisory Agreement”) with Mr. Toll pursuant to which Mr. Toll will provide consulting and advisory services to the Company for a period of one year, commencing October 31, 2018.
 
Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, Mr. Toll will be compensated at an annualized rate of $1,500,000 for his services and will be entitled to receive certain of the health and welfare benefits and perquisites that were provided to Mr. Toll as executive chairman, in addition to office space in the Company’s current headquarters and administrative, bookkeeping and driver support services. Mr. Toll will continue to participate in the Company’s Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan on the same terms and conditions as those applicable prior to Mr. Toll’s resignation.
 
In addition, pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, Mr. Toll has agreed not to compete with the Company or to solicit its employees or customers or otherwise interfere with the Company’s business relationships during the longer of the term of the Advisory Agreement and Mr. Toll’s service as a member of the Board, among other covenants.

The Advisory Agreement generally supersedes all prior agreements between Mr. Toll and the Company (other than with respect to Mr. Toll’s existing obligations not to compete with the Company).
 
A copy of the Company's press release announcing the foregoing is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
