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

As indicated in footnote (3) to the Summary Compensation Table contained in the Proxy Statement for Heartland's 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders filed with the SEC on April 1, 2013, the amounts contained in the Summary Compensation Table as Non-Equity Plan Compensation for the year ended December 31, 2012 reflected payout of only 50% of the targeted bonuses that might eventually be paid. The remaining 50% of the targeted bonuses (non-equity incentive plan compensation) for executive officers could not be finally determined as of the filing date, because a portion of the bonus was subject to downward adjustment by Heartland's Compensation/Nominating Committee based upon peer financial performance and peer median total compensation information for the year ended December 31, 2012.
The data of peer financial performance and compensation for 2012 became available in April and early May 2013. Based on such data, the Heartland Compensation /Nominating Committee met on May 24, 2013 and approved the following payments to Heartland's top 5 named executive officers with respect to the year ended December 31, 2012:
