Amendments to the 2005 Equity and Performance Incentive Plan

On May 22, 2012, at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”), the stockholders approved amendments to the Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. 2005 Equity and Performance Incentive Plan, as amended (the “2005 Plan”), and re-approved the “performance-based” compensation provisions of the 2005 Plan to comply with the requirements of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).

The amendments to the 2005 Plan increase by 1,300,000 the maximum number of shares of the Company’s common stock that may be issued or subject to awards under the 2005 Plan. The amendments to the 2005 Plan also increase the maximum number of awards under the 2005 Plan that may be issued as incentive stock options from 5,850,000 shares to 7,150,000 shares of common stock of the Company. Following the amendments to the 2005 Plan, up to an aggregate of 7,150,000 shares of common stock of the Company, plus certain shares subject to awards granted under specified prior plans and arrangements, are authorized for issuance under the 2005 Plan. Pursuant to its terms, the 2005 Plan is intended to comply with Section 162(m) of the Code and the regulations promulgated thereunder, resulting in the tax deductibility of amounts payable under the 2005 Plan to the Chief Executive Officer or other named executive officers whose compensation is “performance-based” compensation. The stockholders’ re-approval of the “performance-based” compensation provisions of the 2005 Plan extends the time that the Company can make incentive awards (i.e., awards other than stock options and stock appreciation rights) that will qualify as “performance-based” compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code until the first duly constituted meeting of stockholders of the Company that occurs in 2017.

A more detailed description of the terms of the 2005 Plan, as amended, is contained in the Company’s proxy statement for the Annual Meeting, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 9, 2012. The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the 2005 Plan, as amended, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Amendment to Directors Deferred Compensation Plan

On May 22, 2012, at the Annual Meeting of the Company, the stockholders approved an amendment to the 2008 Amended and Restated Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. Directors Deferred Compensation Plan (the “Directors Plan”).

The amendment to the Directors Plan increases by 200,000 the maximum number of shares of the Company’s common stock that may be issued or subject to awards under the Directors Plan. Following the amendment to the Directors Plan, up to an aggregate of 525,000 shares of common stock of the Company are authorized for issuance under the Directors Plan. The Directors Plan permits each director of the Company to elect to defer receipt of all or a portion of such director’s compensation in his or her capacity as a director, and to receive such deferred compensation either in the form of cash or in the form of shares of the Company’s common stock. Deferred amounts under the Directors Plan shall be distributed, either in a lump-sum or in installments, following cessation of the participating director’s service as a director of the Company.

A more detailed description of the terms of the Directors Plan, as amended, is contained in the Company’s proxy statement for the Annual Meeting filed with the SEC on April 9, 2012. The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Directors Plan, as amended, which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
