Explanation of Responses:
1. On August 28, 2008, the reporting person was granted an option to purchase 57,142 shares of common stock scheduled to vest in installments of 8.33%, 20%, 20%, 20%, 20% and 11.67% per year based on the Issuer's satisfaction of certain performance criteria for each of the 2008-2013 fiscal years. The option reported herein as acquired resulted from the acceleration of vesting of 7.47% of such option as a result of a secondary offering of shares of common stock by certain of the Issuer's shareholders. The number of securities reported in this column includes (a) 11,428 unvested options that are subject to time-vesting criteria and which are scheduled to vest on August 25, 2013, and which have the same exercise price and expiration date as the option reported herein as acquired; and (b) 4,266 options which vested after the Issuer's satisfaction of certain performance-vesting criteria or upon vesting acceleration.
