Explanation of Responses:
1. Acquired pursuant to the exercise of the warrants described in Table II.
2. The shares represent the exercise price paid by MacAndrews & Forbes LLC (formerly known as MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc.) ("MacAndrews & Forbes") to acquire the 358,862 shares reported above. The price of the shares was calculated pursuant to the terms of the warrant.
3. These warrants to purchase shares of the common stock ("Common Stock") of SIGA Technologies, Inc. ("SIGA") were acquired by MacAndrews & Forbes pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement, dated August 13, 2003, by and between SIGA and MacAndrews & Forbes. These warrants were previously reported at the time of acquisition as the right to buy 341,493 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $2.00 per share, but, pursuant to the terms of the warrants, were adjusted to reflect the effects of SIGA's subsequent issuance to certain third parties.
