Explanation of Responses:
1. The price reported in Column 4 is a weighted average price. The shares were purchased in multiple transactions at prices ranging from $2.36 to $2.38, inclusive. The reporting person undertakes to provide to the Issuer, any security holder of the Issuer or the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, upon request, full information regarding the number of shares purchased at each separate price within the range set forth in this footnote.
2. Each performance stock unit ("Performance Stock Unit") award represents a right to receive between zero (0) and two (2) shares of the Issuer's common stock if and when the applicable vesting criteria have been achieved.
3. Represents a stock grant from the Issuer under the Issuer's 2011 Stock Incentive Plan.
4. Represents the target number of common stock shares that may be issued pursuant to the award of Performance Stock Units. The actual number of shares of common stock to be issued upon vesting can range from 0% to 200% of the target number of Performance Stock Units reported, based on achievement of specified relative and total stockholder returns of the Issuer. Assuming continued service through the vesting date and achievement of the specified relative and total stockholder returns, the Performance Stock Units, as adjusted, will generally vest on March 23, 2020 (with respect to the 2017 Performance Stock Units award), March 13, 2021 (with respect to the 2018 Performance Stock Units award) and December 31, 2021 (with respect to the 2019 Performance Stock Units award).
5. The Common Units (as defined below) do not have an expiration date.
6. Reflects adjustment from number of units previously reported to give effect to the adoption of Amendment No. 5 to the Seventh Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Ashford Hospitality Limited Partnership, the Issuer's operating subsidiary (the "Subsidiary") (the "Subsidiary Agreement Amendment"), which was adopted for the purpose of creating additional common partnership units of the Subsidiary and the recapitalization of the common partnership units so that the Conversion Factor (as defined in the Subsidiary Agreement Amendment) became 1.0.
7. Common Limited Partnership Units of the Subsidiary ("Common Units"). Common Units are redeemable for cash or, at the option of the Issuer, convertible into shares of the Issuer's common stock on a 1-for-1 basis.
8. Reflects aggregate number of Common Units currently held by the Reporting Person, some of which have been converted from special long-term incentive partnership units of the Subsidiary (special long-term incentive partnership units in Ashford Hospitality Limited Partnership, the Issuer's operating subsidiary) by the Reporting Person. See Footnote 7 discussing the convertibility of the Common Units.
