This Current Report on Form 8-K is filed by Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (the “Company”), a Maryland corporation, and Hudson Pacific Properties, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), a Maryland limited partnership, of which the Company serves as the sole general partner.

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

On February 2, 2021, Alex Vouvalides, Chief Investment Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and Joshua Hatfield, EVP, Operations (together, the “Executives”) notified Company management of their resignations from the Company in order to pursue their own venture, each effective February 7, 2021 (the “Effective Date”).

In connection with the Executives’ termination of employment with the Company as of the Effective Date, the Executives are continuing to serve as consultants to the Company for a period of up to three months and, on February 8, 2021, each entered into a Transition Agreement (the “Transition Agreement”) with the Company and the Operating Partnership, pursuant to which each Executive will receive the following payments and benefits: (i) a monthly consulting fee of $52,083 and $47,917 for Messrs. Vouvalides and Hatfield, respectively, over the consulting period, payable in monthly installments, (ii) each award of outstanding LTIP units of the Operating Partnership held by the Executive that vests based on the passage of time (each, an “Equity Award”) shall continue to remain outstanding and continue to vest in accordance with its terms (based on each Executive’s continued provision of consulting services rather than continued employment) and (iii) subject to the Executive’s execution and non-revocation of a general release of claims, continued service through the end of the consulting period and continued compliance with certain covenants set forth in the Transition Agreement, each Equity Award that is then outstanding and unvested shall vest on November 8, 2021.

The foregoing description of each Transition Agreement is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by the terms of each Transition Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2, and incorporated herein by reference.
