("EdR") 2018 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the "Plan"), which will vest upon continued employment at the end of a three year performance period provided that certain performance criteria are met over that three year period. The reporting person has elected to receive his performance based award in the form of profit-only interests ("POIs") in Education Realty Operating Partnership, LP (the "Operating Partnership"), a subsidiary of EdR. Each performance based award represents a contingent right to receive 0-100% of that number of POIs based upon the achievement of certain performance criteria set forth in the Plan.

( 3 )The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of EdR approved the total dollar value of a grant of performance-based awards on February 22, 2018, at a fair value per unit to be determined. EdR engaged an independent third party valuation consultant to establish the fair value on the date of grant. On February 23, 2017, the valuation report was finalized and the grant of POIs was determined.
