Explanation of Responses:
1. The price reported is a weighted average price. These shares were sold in multiple transactions at prices ranging from $3.02 to $3.30, inclusive. The reporting person undertakes to provide to the Issuer, any security holder of the Issuer, or staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, upon request, full information regarding the number of shares acquired at each price within the range set forth herein.
2. 7,231,520 of these shares are held by the Accounts (as defined below). Casablanca Capital LP serves as investment advisor to certain investment funds or managed accounts (collectively, the "Accounts"), and may be deemed to have beneficial ownership over the common shares held for such Accounts. On November 6, 2015, Casablanca Capital LP sold 675,000 common shares on behalf of the Accounts. The reporting person, as a co-managing member of Casablanca GP, is in a position to indirectly determine the voting and investment decisions regarding the common shares held by the Accounts and may be deemed to "beneficially own" such common shares. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of these common shares except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein and the filing of this report is not an admission that the reporting person is the beneficial owner of these securities for purposes of Section 16 or for any other purpose.
3. These shares are held in a trust for the benefit of the reporting person's children. The reporting person's spouse is a trustee of the trust. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of these securities, and the filing of this report is not an admission that the reporting person is the beneficial owner of these securities for purposes of Section 16 or for any other purpose.
