Explanation of Responses:
1. The price shown in Column 4 is a weighted average purchase price. The price range for the purchases is $39.405 to $39.47. The Reporting Persons undertake to provide upon request by the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Issuer or a security holder of the Issuer, full information regarding the number of shares purchased at each separate price.
2. Trian Fund Management, L.P ("Trian Management") serves as the management company for Trian Partners, L.P. ("TPLP"), Trian Partners Master Fund, L.P. ("TPMF"), Trian Partners Master Fund (ERISA), L.P. ("ERISA"), Trian Partners Parallel Fund I, L.P. ("Parallel"), Trian Partners Strategic Investment Fund II, L.P.

3. (FN 2, contd.) Mr. Garden is a member of Trian Fund Management GP, LLC, which is the general partner of Trian Management, and therefore is in a position to determine the investment and voting decisions made by Trian Management on behalf of the Trian Entities. Accordingly, Mr. Garden and Trian Management may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own (as that term is defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) the shares beneficially owned by the Trian Entities. The Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of such shares except to the extent of their respective pecuniary interests therein and this report shall not be deemed an admission that the Reporting Persons are the beneficial owner of such securities for purposes of Section 16 or for any other purpose. Mr. Garden is a director of the Issuer.
4. On February 25, 2015, one of the Trian Entities entered into a privately negotiated back-to-back call and put transaction with a counterparty through which it acquired an economic interest in the indicated shares.
5. (FN 4, contd.) Simultaneously with the purchase of the call option, the Trian Entity also sold a put option to the counterparty for the same number of shares pursuant to which, if on February 26, 2018 the exercise price per share of the call option is greater than the closing price of the shares on February 26, 2018, (the "Closing Price"), the counterparty would be entitled to cause the Trian Entity, at its election, either to (i) pay the counterparty an amount in cash equal to the product of (a) the excess of the exercise price per share pursuant to such option (the "Exercise Price") over the Closing Price and (b) the number of shares set forth above or (ii) acquire from the counterparty the number of shares set forth above at the Exercise Price.On March 4, 2015, all of the call options acquired in February 2015 were exercised at the exercise price noted in Table I.
6. The put-call option was previously reported at an exercise price of $39.6703 but, in accordance with the terms of the underlying agreements, the exercise price was adjusted to reflect dividends paid with respect to the indicated shares and the financing fee paid to the counterparty.
