Explanation of Responses:
1. For estate planning purposes, the Evelyn H. Lauder 2011 Marital Trust, as successor to the LAL 2008 Marital Trust (the "LAL 2008 Trust"), was divided into two trusts: the Evelyn H. Lauder 2012 Marital Trust One ("EHL Trust One") and the Evelyn H. Lauder 2012 Marital Trust Two ("EHL Trust Two"), each of which is an irrevocable trust. EHL Trust One is for the benefit of William P. Lauder, Gary M. Lauder, and their descendants. EHL Trust Two is for the benefit of Leonard A. Lauder and his descendants. As a result of the division, the LAL 2008 Trust terminated and ceased being a stockholder of LAL Family Corporation ("LALFC"), which is the sole general partner of LAL Family Partners L.P. ("LALFP"), and EHL Trust One and EHL Trust Two became stockholders of LALFC. The shares reported continue to be owned directly by LALFP. Each of EHL Trust One and EHL Trust Two disclaims beneficial ownership of such shares except to the extent of its pecuniary interest.
2. There is no exercise or conversion price for the Class B Common Stock. Shares of Class B Common Stock (i) may be converted immediately on a one-for-one basis by the holder into shares of Class A Common stock and (ii) are automatically converted into Class A Common Stock on a one-for-one basis upon transfer to a person or entity that is not a "Permitted Transferee" (as defined in the Issuer's Restated Certificate of Incorporation) or soon after a record date for a meeting of stockholders where the outstanding Class B Common Stock constitutes less than 10% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer.
