Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers. On May 24, 2013, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Board") of EastGroup Properties, Inc. (the "Company") established the Company's 2013 annual cash bonus and equity incentive performance goals and long-term equity incentive performance goals for the executive officers of the Company. The performance goals were developed by the Compensation Committee with the assistance of a nationally recognized consulting firm who, among other things, benchmarked compensation practices of companies in the Company's peer group and advised the Compensation Committee on appropriate compensation guidelines.

In performing this analysis, the Compensation Committee will consider the Company's financial and other performance, both on an absolute and relative basis, as well as general economic conditions in the Company's markets and factors such as property acquisitions, dispositions, equity issuances, and debt financings during the year. The annual cash bonus compensation that the Company's named executive officers are eligible to receive are as follows:

On and effective May 29, 2013, the Board amended and restated the Company's Bylaws. The Company's Bylaws have been unchanged since 2008. Upon advice and review by legal counsel, the Board determined it was in the best interest of the Company to adopt certain changes to the Company's Bylaws. The following is a summary of changes affected by adoption of the amended


and restated Bylaws, which is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
In addition to the amendments described below, the amended and restated Bylaws include certain changes to (i) clarify language, (ii) enhance consistency with Maryland law and New York Stock Exchange listing requirements and (iii) make various technical corrections and non-substantive changes. The amended and restated Bylaws are referred to herein as the "amended Bylaws." The Bylaws as previously in effect are referred to herein as the "former Bylaws." Article II - Stockholders
Annual Meeting. The amended Bylaws remove the reference to the annual stockholder meeting being held between May 11 and June 10 of each year. Notice. The amended Bylaws (i) provide for "householding" of notices and (ii) provide that a minor irregularity in the notice of a stockholders meeting will not affect the validity of the meeting.
Organization and Conduct. The amended Bylaws vest broad powers in the chairman of the meeting, including (i) establishing rules and procedures for maintaining order at the meeting and the safety of those present and (ii) determining when and for how long the polls should be open and when the polls should be closed. Advance Notice of Stockholder Nominees for Director and Other Stockholder Proposals. The amended Bylaws expand the information required to be disclosed by stockholders proposing to nominate a director or bring other business before a stockholders meeting to include, among other information, information about associated persons and other stockholders supporting such nominee or business, and information regarding hedging or other similar transactions. In addition, the amended Bylaws change the timing of the advance notice period to place the Company in conformity with what the Company believes to be the prevalent practice in the industry.
Article III - Directors
Ratification. The amended Bylaws authorize the Board and stockholders to ratify prior actions or inactions by the Company. Article V - Officers
Executive Chairman of the Board. The amended Bylaws specifically provide for the position of Executive Chairman of the Board as an officer of the Company. Article VI - Finance
Deposits. The amended Bylaws clarify the power of the Board, the chief executive officer, the president, the chief financial officer or any other officer designated by the Board to direct the deposit or investment of funds.


Article VII - Stock
Certificates. The amended Bylaws remove specific references to officers permitted to sign and countersign stock certificates that were contained in the former Bylaws.
Fixing of Record Date. The former Bylaws contained obsolete language in regarding the closing of transfer books in lieu of fixing a record date. The amended Bylaws now expressly provide that a meeting of stockholders may be adjourned or postponed to a date not more than 120 days after the original record date, without the need to set a new record date and send a new notice.
