Explanation of Responses:
1. Includes units acquired through routine dividend transactions that are exempt under Rule 16a-11.
2. On June 1, 2005, the Common Stock of the issuer split on a 2-for1 basis by means of a 100% stock dividend payable to stockholders of record as of May 16, 2005. As a result, the exercise price and the number of shares that may be acquired upon exercise of the stock options as of the date of the transactions reported herein reflects the stock split.
3. In connection with the spin-off of Phillips 66 on April 30, 2012 by ConocoPhillips, outstanding ConocoPhillips stock options were adjusted so that the holders hold vested stock options to purchase both Phillips 66 common stock and ConocoPhillips common stock. The Phillips 66 and ConocoPhillips stock options received, when combined, will generally preserve the intrinsic value of each original stock option grant and the ratio of the exercise price to the fair market value of ConocoPhillips common stock on the distribution date.
