Explanation of Responses:
1. Reflects stock grants of 13,008 shares under the Issuer's 2015 Incentive Compensation Plan to each of Kevin Schwartz and Alexander Corbacho in connection with their service as a director of the Issuer. Such awards will vest as to 100% of the shares subject to the award on the anniversary of the date of grant, provided that Mr. Schwartz and Mr. Corbacho, as applicable, continues to serve as a director through such date. Pursuant to an assignment agreement between Paine Schwartz Partners Fund V Management, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Paine Schwartz Partners, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("PSP"), and both Mr. Schwartz and Mr. Corbacho, effective as of July 27, 2020, each of Mr. Schwartz and Mr. Corbacho has assigned to PSP all of his right, title and interest in and to any compensation, including equity awards, he receives from the Issuer for his services as a director of the Issuer.
2. This statement is being filed by the following Reporting Persons: PSP, Mr. W. Dexter Paine and Mr. Kevin M. Schwartz.
3. Mr. Paine and Mr. Schwartz serve as managers of the ultimate general partner of PSP, and each disclaim beneficial ownership of any common stock held of record or beneficially owned by PSP and any of its parent companies or subsidiaries. Each Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities reported herein for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"),or for any other purpose, except to the extent of its respective pecuniary interest therein, if any.
Remarks:
For purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to be directors by deputization by virtue of the fact that an affiliate of PSP has a contractual right to nominate directors to the Issuer's board of directors (the "Board"). Kevin Schwartz and Alexander Corbacho, each of whom was designated by such PSP affiliate, currently serve on the Board. As a result, the "Director" box is marked in Item 5 of this Form 4.
