Explanation of Responses:
1. Subject to the continued employment of the Reporting Person, these restricted shares of Common Stock will vest on December 31, 2012. If the Reporting Person's employment is terminated by the Reporting Person with good reason or by the Issuer without cause before December 31, 2012, a pro rata portion of these restricted shares will vest on the date of such termination. If the Reporting Person's employment is terminated by the Reporting Person without good reason or by the Issuer for cause, the Reporting Person will forfeit these restricted shares.
2. These shares of restricted stock represent the Reporting Person's fiscal year 2012 target bonus at the maximum level of achievement divided by the closing price of the Issuer's common stock on the date of grant. Following the end of fiscal year 2012, the Reporting Person's actual target bonus will be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Issuer as a percentage of the Reporting Person's maximum target bonus. These shares of restricted stock will vest in the percentage that the Reporting Person's actual target bonus bears to his maximum target bonus.
