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 transaction includes 53 shares withheld for taxes in connection with the filer's stock salary award.
4. Jointly owned.
5. These shares are owned by the son of the reporting person under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act for which the reporting person is custodian.
6. Currently exercisable.
7. The option was granted under an employee stock option plan maintained by M&T Bank Corporation, and therefore the reporting person paid no price for the option.
