Explanation of Responses:
( 1 )On December 28, 2017, shares of the Issuer's common stock underlying Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") that were awarded in connection with compensation for years prior to 2017 were delivered to the Reporting Person without the payment of any consideration. These shares are not related to 2017 compensation. The shares were scheduled to be delivered in January 2018; however, the Board of Directors of the Issuer, in its sole discretion, determined to make this delivery in December 2017 due to changes in U.S. tax law and the associated tax savings to the Issuer that resulted from making the delivery prior to year-end.
( 2 )Represents shares of the Issuer's common stock withheld to satisfy withholding obligations in connection with the delivery of the common stock underlying the RSUs described in footnote 1 above.
( 3 )Held through a trust, the sole trustee of which is the Reporting Person's spouse and the sole beneficiaries of which are immediate family members of the Reporting Person. The Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of these shares.

Reminder: Report on a separate line for each class of securities beneficially owned directly or indirectly.
* If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 4(b)(v).
