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

On January 30, 2018, the Executive Compensation and Employee Benefits Committee (the "Compensation Committee") of the Board of Directors of Haverty Furniture Companies, Inc. (the "Company" or "Havertys") established base salary, annual incentive opportunities and long-term incentive equity grants for the Company's Named Executive Officers ("NEOs") for 2018.

Base Salary:  A $10,000 increase from current base salaries was approved for the NEOs.  The NEOs base salaries have not been increased for three years.

Annual Incentive Opportunities:  The Compensation Committee approved new management incentive plans (the "Plans" or "MIP I" or "MIP II") to determine 2018 cash incentives pursuant to the Company's 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan. The NEOs are eligible to receive a target payout amount from the combined Plans of 60% of their 2018 annual base salary, except that Mr. Smith's target is 100% of base salary.  The MIP I Plan covers 80% of the target payout.  The MIP I sets goals of pre-tax earnings on a quarterly and annual basis.  Participants will begin to earn the incentive pay once at least 80% of a goal is met increasing up to 125% of the pre-tax goal.  There is a 3% change in the incentive pay earned for every 1% increase or decrease in actual pre-tax earnings versus the goal with the incentive pay potential ranging from 40% to 175% of the earnings target payout amount.  Pre-tax earnings for comparison to the goal will be that amount reported in the annual Form 10-K, adjusted to eliminate the effects of asset impairments, restructurings, acquisitions, divestitures, other unusual or non-recurring items, store closing costs, and the cumulative effect of accounting changes, as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, as applicable. The MIP II Plan, which does not provide for above target payouts, covers the remaining 20% of the potential target payout.  The MIP II Plan is earned for achieving additional performance criteria or specific projects or initiatives tailored to each person as approved by the Compensation Committee.  The Compensation Committee has discretion in the administration of the Plans.

Long-Term Incentive Equity Grants:  Pursuant to the Company's 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan the Compensation Committee authorized the following grants of Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") and Performance Restricted Stock Units ("PRSUs").  Each RSU and PRSU represent a contingent right to receive one share of the company's common stock.

The RSUs vest in accordance with the schedule set forth in the notice of grant letter attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.

PRSUs were granted with shares earned based on the company's EBITDA (adjusted for unusual items) for the year ended December 31, 2018.  EBITDA is equal to the sum of income before income taxes, interest expense, and depreciation and amortization as reported in the Company's financial statements included in its annual Form 10-K.  Adjustments will be made to eliminate the effects of certain items such as, asset impairments, acquisitions, and cumulative effect of accounting changes. The number of units reported above represent target performance. The actual number that become eligible for vesting is based on achieving the level of EBITDA during the performance period in accordance with the schedule set forth in the notice of grant letter attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2. These grants vest in February 2021.

Also granted were PRSUs with shares earned based on achieving target levels of annual net sales for 2018.  The number of units reported above represent target performance. The actual number that become eligible for vesting is based on achieving the level of sales during the performance period in accordance with the schedule set forth in the notice of grant letter attached hereto as Exhibit 10.3. These grants vest in February 2021.
