Explanation of Responses:
1. In addition to Mantle Ridge LP, a Delaware limited partnership ("Mantle Ridge"), this Form 4 is being filed jointly by MR BridgeStone Advisor LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("MR BridgeStone") and Paul C. Hilal, a citizen of the United States of America (collectively, the "Reporting Persons"), each of whom has the same business address as Mantle Ridge and may be deemed to have a pecuniary interest in securities reported on this Form 4 (the "Subject Securities"). All Subject Securities reported on this Form 4 are rounded up to the nearest whole share.
2. MR BridgeStone, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mantle Ridge, advises the accounts of MR BridgeStone Offshore Fund AB Ltd and MR BridgeStone Offshore Fund CA 01 Ltd, each a Cayman Islands exempted company (all such funds and their subsidiaries together, the "Mantle Ridge Funds").
3. MR BridgeStone, as the investment adviser to the Mantle Ridge Funds, and Mantle Ridge, as the sole member of MR BridgeStone, each may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the Subject Securities for purposes of Rule 16a-1(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. By virtue of Paul C. Hilal's position as ultimately controlling MR BridgeStone and Mantle Ridge, Paul C. Hilal may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the Subject Securities for purposes of Rule 16a-1(a). Each of the Reporting Persons disclaims any beneficial ownership of any of the Subject Securities, except to the extent of any pecuniary interest therein.
4. Paul C. Hilal is a member of the board of directors of the Issuer, and as a result, each of the other Reporting Persons may be directors by deputization for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
5. Certain of the Mantle Ridge Funds were party to forwards which were physically settled (the "Physically Settled Forward Agreements") having an average net purchase price of $34.95 per share. On the applicable valuation date, the counterparty delivered to Mantle Ridge Fund a number of shares equal to the number of shares of Common Stock referenced in such Physically Settled Forward Agreement, in exchange for cash equal to the then-applicable forward price plus a financing amount. Such Mantle Ridge Fund elected to exercise the Physically Settled Forward Agreement early, thus the valuation date occurred on such early exercise date.
