Explanation of Responses:
1. The share issuance reported on Table I reflects shares issued upon the exercise of options granted on June 1, 2007, which, if unexercised, would have expired on June 1, 2014. The option exercises are reported on Table II. These option exercises were pursuant to a net issuance arrangement effected under the issuer's equity incentive plan. The number of shares issued pursuant to the net issuance arrangement was calculated as follows: the option exercise price ($12.37) was subtracted from the May 12, 2014 market close price ($14.47), and this net amount ($2.10) was then multiplied by the number of options (12,000), with the resulting amount then divided by the market close price to result in a net issuance of 1,742 shares to the optionee. The 10,258 shares underlying the remaining portion of the options are not available for reissuance, and no shares are sold into the market as part of the exercise in connection with a net issuance program.
