Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
(e) On January 27, 2011, the Management Development and Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of KB Home (the “Company”) determined the amount of incentive compensation payable to each of the Company’s eligible executive officers under the Company’s fiscal year 2010 annual incentive program. In accordance with the incentive program’s design and underlying performance objectives, each such executive officer became eligible under the program to receive his maximum possible award. Given the challenging housing market conditions and the Company’s financial performance in fiscal year 2010, however, the Committee exercised its authority under the program to significantly reduce the amount of each of the awards. The final amounts determined by the Committee for the Company’s named executive officers are set forth below.
Name   Annual Incentive Award  
William R. Hollinger
  $ 350,000  
Jeff J. Kaminski
  $ 360,000  
Jeffrey T. Mezger
  $ 2,750,000
