Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhib


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

On October 24, 2012, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of West Bancorporation, Inc. (the "Company") approved the adoption of the West Bancorporation, Inc. Deferred Compensation Plan (the "Plan"). The Plan is an unfunded, nonqualified deferred compensation plan intended to conform to the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. The Plan will be effective as of January 1, 2013, and provides an opportunity for eligible participants, including directors and key officers of the Company and its subsidiaries, to voluntarily defer receipt of a portion of their respective cash compensation. The amount of compensation to be deferred by each individual participating in the Plan (each, a "participant"), if any, is determined in accordance with the Plan based on each participant's election. Additionally, the Company and its subsidiaries have the right to make discretionary contributions under the Plan on behalf of participants, though the Company has no intention at this time of making such Company contributions. Deferred compensation under the Plan is payable on a date or dates selected by each participant at the time of enrollment, subject to change in certain specified circumstances. In the event of a change in control of the Company, any amounts deferred by a participant will be distributed to the participant in a lump sum upon the change in control, and any Company contributions will be distributed in accordance with the participant's elections.

Amounts deferred under the Plan will be credited to bookkeeping accounts maintained by the Company for each participant, adjusted for any gains or losses attributable to a notional rate of return selected by the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Board. Prior to the Plan's Effective Date, the Committee shall establish the notional rate of return for 2013 and thereafter, subject to subsequent changes by the Committee. Payment obligations pursuant to the Plan are unsecured general obligations of the Company. The Committee may amend the Plan from time to time, except that no amendment may decrease any amount then credited to a participant's account under the Plan.

The foregoing summary of the terms of the Plan is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
