Explanation of Responses:
( 1 )23,250 Equity Participation Shares ("EPSs") held by the Reporting Person previously vested on January 31, 2019. In connection with the issuance of the Class A shares on February 7, 2020 as a result of such vesting, 6,992 Class A shares were withheld to satisfy his tax withholding obligations pursuant to the terms of the award agreement governing the EPSs. This is not an open market sale of securities.
( 2 )The Reporting Person indirectly owns the Class A Shares, Class B Shares of the Issuer ("Class B Shares") and the Units representing limited liability company interests ("Units") in Tallgrass Equity, LLC ("Tallgrass Equity") reported herein under trust agreement dated April 10, 2014, for which the Reporting Person serves as Trustee. The Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of the Class A Shares, Class B Shares and Units reported herein except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein.
( 3 )Pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Issuer dated July 2, 2018 and the Second Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of Tallgrass Equity dated May 12, 2015, the Reporting Person has a right, from time to time, at his sole election, to immediately exchange his Class B Shares and an equivalent number of Units for a like number of Class A Shares. As a result, all Class B Shares and Units owned by the Reporting Person, may be deemed to constitute Class A Shares beneficially owned by him.
( 4 )The Units, collectively with the Class B Shares, constitute derivative securities as described herein.
