On March 16, 2011, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of BankUnited, Inc. (the Company) approved a $300,000 discretionary cash bonus for Randy R. Melby, Senior Executive Vice President, Chief Risk Officer of the Companys wholly-owned subsidiary BankUnited (BankUnited), for the year ended December 31, 2010. All other compensation for Mr. Melby for the year ended December 31, 2010 was previously reported by the Company in the Summary Compensation Table beginning on page 131 of the Prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 31, 2011 (the Prospectus). As of the filing of the Prospectus, bonuses for the named executive officers had not been determined and, therefore, were omitted from the Summary Compensation Table included in the Prospectus. Pursuant to Item 5.02(f) of Form 8-K, the bonus award for Mr. Melby for the year ended December 31, 2010 is set forth below together with the other compensation previously reported, and the new total compensation amount. No other named executive officer received bonus awards in respect of the year ended December 31, 2010 and, accordingly, the compensation previously reported in the Prospectus for such named executive officers remains unchanged.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
