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

As previously announced on October 25, 2023, Humberto “Burt” Cabañas resigned from the board of directors (the “Board”) of Hines Global Income Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) and from each committee of the Board, effective as of November 1, 2023. The Articles of Amendment and Restatement of the Company, as amended (the “Charter”) require that a majority of the members of the Board be comprised of Independent Directors (as defined in the Charter) except for a period of 60 days after the death, removal, or resignation of an Independent Director. The vacancy created by the resignation of Mr. Cabañas left the Board without a majority of Independent Directors. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board is currently conducting a search process to identify and appoint a new Independent Director to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Cabañas’ resignation.

In light of the Company’s ongoing search for a new Independent Director, Laura Hines-Pierce has decided to voluntarily and temporarily resign from the Board, effective as of December 31, 2023, in order to re-establish a majority of Independent Directors on the Board, as required by the Charter. Ms. Hines-Pierce’s resignation is not a result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter related to the Company’s operations, policies or practices, or the Company’s management or Board. In connection with her temporary resignation, the Board approved a temporary reduction in the size of the Board from seven members to five members. It is the expectation of the Board that once a new Independent Director has been duly identified by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, the Board will be expanded to consist of seven members. At that time, the Board expects that it will appoint the new Independent Director and will reappoint Ms. Hines-Pierce to the Board. Ms. Hines-Pierce will continue to serve in her role of Co-Chief Executive Officer of Hines, the Company’s sponsor.

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has appointed John O. Niemann, Jr. to be the temporary Chair of the Valuation Committee and Dougal A. Cameron to be the temporary Chair of the Conflicts Committee. The Board expects that once the Board has appointed a new Independent Director, the Board will reassess which Independent Directors should serve as the Chairs of each of these committees.
