Explanation of Responses:
1. Restricted Stock granted on January 19, 2018 will vest over three years in 50% installments beginning on the second anniversary of the award date.
2. Restricted Stock granted on January 25, 2016 will "cliff" vest 100% three years from award date.
3. The Performance Stock awarded on February 22, 2017 will cliff vest 100% beginning on the third anniversary of the date that the performance goal is met. The performance goal will be met as of the end of the fiscal quarter when either the Company's total assets equal or exceed $12.5 billion or the Company has averaged $0.315 diluted earnings per share for four consecutive quarters or $1.26 total diluted earnings per share over a period of four consecutive quarters within three years of the award date.
4. Reflects the dollar value of the reporting person's units in a unitized stock fund under the Home BancShares, Inc. 401(k) Plan as of April 20, 2018, divided by the closing price of Home BancShares common stock on that date. The unitized stock fund consists of Home BancShares common stock and a reserve of cash in amounts that vary from time to time.
5. The option is exercisable in five equal annual installments and expires 10 years from the exercisable date, therefore the first installment became exercisable on December 31, 2005 and would have expired on December 31, 2015.
