Explanation of Responses:
1. These shares were sold by Dan Muhleisen pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 Sales Plan (the "Plan") entered into on March 8, 2012, which provides for the sale of shares of the issuer's Class A Common Stock, subject to limit price provisions and an expiration date of January 5, 2013. To the extent any future sales occur pursuant to the Plan, such sales will be publicly disclosed in Form 4 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

Rule 10b5-1, promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, allows significant shareholders of a company who are not in possession of material non-public information to establish pre-arranged plans to buy or sell a specified number of shares of such company's stock. Once a plan is established, the shareholder does not retain or exercise any discretion over sales of stock under the plan and the pre-planned trades may be executed at later dates as set forth in the plan.
3. The price reported in Column 4 is a weighted average price. These shares were sold in multiple transactions at prices ranging from $23.4300 to $24.0900 inclusive.
