Explanation of Responses:
1. This represents the difference between the number of SARs exercised (15,000) and the number of shares issued as a result of the exercise (5,937). The number of shares to be issued under a SAR exercise is determined by multiplying the number of SARs being exercised by the difference between the FMV on the date immediately prior to the date the SAR is exercised ($12.40) and the base price ($7.49).
2. The price reported in Column 4 is a weighted average price. These shares were sold in multiple transactions at prices ranging from $12.14 to $12.45, inclusive. The reporting person undertakes to provide to DSP Group, Inc., any security holder of DSP Group, Inc., or the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, upon request, full information regarding the number of shares sold at each separate price within the ranges set forth in this footnote to this Form 4.
3. Represents 4,060 shares outstanding, 85,438 vested RSUs, and 64,562 unvested RSUs.
4. The Stock Appreciation Right vested 25% after 1 year and 6.25% each quarter thereafter.
5. The Stock Appreciation Right grant is subject to a ceiling such that when the fair market value of the Company's common stock is equal to or great than three times the base appreciation amount of the stock appreciation right, the portion of the stock appreciation rights that is vested on such date is automatically exercised on the next trading day and the appreciation amount is paid by the issuance of the respective number of shares of the Company's common stock. Therefore, 10,000 shares represents the maximum number of underlying shares of common stock that may be received upon exercise.
