Explanation of Responses:
1. Shares vested pursuant to a share price performance restricted share unit award (the "Performance RSU") granted pursuant to the Avago Technologies Limited 2009 Equity Incentive Award Plan ("2009 Avago Plan") on November 15, 2016. The Performance RSU is scheduled to vest over four years, with 25% vesting on each anniversary of the date of grant, such that the Performance RSU will be fully vested on November 15, 2020; provided, however, that no portion of the Performance RSU may vest unless the average of the closing prices of the Issuer's ordinary shares (as reported on the stock exchange on which the shares are listed), over a twenty consecutive trading day period is equal to or greater than 120% of the fair market value of the Issuer's ordinary shares on the date of grant (the "Price Contingency"). On February 13, 2017, the Price Contingency was met, and on November 15, 2017, the first 25% of the Performance RSU vested.
2. Each Performance RSU represents the right to receive, at settlement, one ordinary share of the Issuer. This transaction represents the settlement of the Performance RSU in the Issuer's ordinary shares on the scheduled vesting date.
3. Includes 45,000 Restricted Shares Units ("RSU").
4. Shares sold by the Reporting Person pursuant to mandatory sale provisions of the relevant RSU grants, including the Performance RSU, requiring the sale of sufficient shares to cover withholding taxes due upon vesting of RSUs.
