Explanation of Responses:
1. The reported transaction involves an award of fully vested restricted stock issued under the M&T Bank Corporation 2009 Equity Incentive Compensation Plan and represents a portion of the reporting person's salary. The restricted stock will be subject to restrictions on transfer such that each executive may not sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any of the shares received as stock salary until the earlier of (a) the date that M&T Bank Corporation repays Treasury's Capital Purchase Program investment made under the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or (b) January 1, 2014.
2. The restricted stock was granted under an equity incentive compensation plan maintained by M&T Bank Corporation, and therefore the reporting person paid no price for the restricted stock.
3. The reported phantom common stock units are held by the reporting person in an excess benefit plan account maintained by M&T Bank Corporation and represent a like number of shares of M&T Bank Corporation common stock. The phantom common stock units may only be settled in cash upon distribution in accordance with the terms of the plan. The reported phantom common stock units also include units acquired through the dividend reinvestment feature of the plan.
4. The information presented is as of March 30, 2012.
