Explanation of Responses:
1. Restricted stock unit award granted on February 16, 2021 under the 2021-2023 Long Term Incentive Plan, a sub-plan of the 2018 Equity and Incentive Compensation Plan. Each restricted stock unit represents the right to receive, following vesting, one share of Class A common stock. The award vests in substantially equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the date of grant, provided that Mr. Capriles remains in the continuous service of the Company or a subsidiary through each such date.
2. Each performance based restricted stock unit represents the right to receive, following vesting, one share of Class A common stock. The actual number of performance based restricted stock units earned shall be based on the achievement of the Relative Total Shareholder Return at a Threshold, Target or Maximum level set by the Compensation Committee for a 3-year period beginning January 1, 2021 and ending on December 31, 2023, and in general can range from 50% of the performance based restricted stock units to 150% of the performance based restricted stock units. The number of performance based restricted stock units reported reflect the maximum number of performance based restricted stock units Mr. Capriles may earn at the end of the performance period.
