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

At the 2014 annual meeting of stockholders (the "Annual Meeting") of First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc. (the "Company"), the stockholders of the Company approved the First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc. 2014 Stock Incentive Plan (the "2014 Plan"). The Board of Directors of the Company adopted the 2014 Plan on March 11, 2014, subject to stockholder approval. The 2014 Plan permits the issuance of restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, nonstatutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance share awards and dividend equivalents to officers, employees and directors of, and service providers to, the Company and its affiliates and subsidiaries. The 2014 Plan is to be administered by the Company's compensation committee, which is composed entirely of independent directors. The 2014 Plan is replacing the Company's prior equity compensation plans.

The 2014 Plan is described in greater detail in Proposal 2 in the Company's Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting (the "Proxy Statement"). The description of the 2014 Plan contained herein and in the Proxy Statement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the 2014 Plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

As disclosed in the Proxy Statement, the Company granted shares of restricted stock to its executive officers on February 12, 2014, contingent on the approval of the 2014 Plan at the Annual Meeting. With the approval of the 2014 Plan at the Annual Meeting, these grants are no longer contingent.
