Explanation of Responses:
(1)  The Reporting Person has received an exempt award of Deferred Stock Units ("DSUs") under the Issuer's Non-Employee Director Compensation Plan. DSUs represent a right to receive shares of the Issuer's Common Stock (or, in the sole discretion of the Issuer's Board of Directors following a change in control, cash, securities or a combination of cash and securities equal to the fair market value thereof) upon termination of service as a Director of the Issuer. The Reporting Person has elected to receive DSUs in lieu of the annual retainer fees payable for services on the Issuer's Board of Directors and any committees thereof. The DSUs are awarded on the date such fees would otherwise be payable (i.e., quarterly in arrears). The DSUs are immediately vested.
