Explanation of Responses:
1. The reporting person is the investment manager for (a) PWCM Master Fund Ltd, an exempted company formed in the Cayman Islands, (b) Pentwater Equity Opportunities Master Fund, Ltd., an exempted company formed in the Cayman Islands, (c) Pentwater Merger Arbitrage Master Fund, Ltd, an exempted company formed in the Cayman Islands, (d) Oceana Master Fund, Ltd., an exempted company formed in the Cayman Islands and (e) LMA SPC for and on behalf of MAP 98 Segregated Portfolio, a segregated portfolio company formed in the Cayman Islands, which directly own the shares. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of these shares except to the extent of the reporting person's pecuniary interest in the shares.
2. The reporting person has entered into various cash-settled total return swap agreements (each a "Swap" and collectively, the "Swaps") with fixed termination dates and with respect to a notional number of shares of common stock ("reference shares") of the issuer as set forth in Table ll. Generally, under each Swap, the counterparty is obligated to pay the reporting person in cash, amounts that are determined in part by reference to any increase between a reference price per share set forth in Table ll and the market value of such reference shares on the applicable termination date. None of the Swaps provide for the reporting person to have direct or indirect voting, investment or dispositive control over any reference shares. The reporting persons disclaim any beneficial ownership in any reference share or other securities, if any, which may be owned by the counterparties to such Swaps.
