Explanation of Responses:
1. Of such securities, 586 shares of common stock are held by Bank of America Corporation ("BAC") and the remaining securities are held by Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated ("MLPFS"), an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of BAC. The transaction reports shares held by MLPFS. Each of BAC and MLPFS disclaims beneficial ownership except to the extent of its pecuniary interest therein.
Remarks:
Pursuant to the Third Amended and Restated Stockholder Agreement dated as of November 15, 2010, as may be amended from time to time, between Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. ("ML&Co."), a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of BAC, Merrill Lynch Group, Inc. ("ML Group"), an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of BAC, and the issuer, once ML&Co. and its affiliates have beneficially owned less than five percent of the issuer's capital stock for a period of 90 days, ML&Co.'s designee to the issuer's board of directors is required to resign. As reported on a Form 4 filed on May 23, 2011, the issuer has waived this requirement to allow ML&Co.'s designee to continue to serve as a member of the issuer's board of directors, subject to future review by the issuer's board of directors. Disgorgement of profits, if applicable, based on transactions reported above is being made by the Reporting Person to the Issuer.
