All balances will be settled in cash.  The Marcato Stockholders’ counterparty for the swaps is Morgan Stanley Capital Services LLC.  The swaps do not give the Marcato Stockholders direct or indirect voting, investment or dispositive control over any securities of the Issuer and do not require the counterparty thereto to acquire, hold, vote or dispose of any securities of the Issuer.  Accordingly, the members of the Group disclaim any beneficial ownership of any Shares that may be referenced in the swap contracts or Shares or other securities or financial instruments that may be held from time to time by any counterparty to the contracts.  The number of shares specified in such swaps is 89,046 with respect to Marcato I, 12,826 with respect to Marcato II, and 516,168 with respect to Marcato International.

Except as set forth in this Item 5(b)(1) of Section I(B)(vii) or in Sections I(B)(ii) and I(B)(iv) of this Notice and on Appendix I hereto, each of which is incorporated herein by reference, no Nomination Participant, and no associate of any Nomination Participant, owns beneficially, directly or indirectly, or of record but not beneficially, any securities of the Company, or any parent or subsidiary of the Company, nor has any Nomination Participant purchased or sold any securities of the Company within the last two years.  Set forth in Appendix I hereto are transactions in the Company’s securities effected by each of the Nomination Participants within the past two years.

(xi) 
Item 5(b)(xi) cross-references the information required by Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K of the Exchange Act with respect to each Nomination Participant in the solicitation or any associates of such Nomination Participant.  Such information is set forth below:

Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.  Except as set forth above and in Sections I(B)(ii) and I(B)(iv) and on Appendix I hereto, each of which is incorporated herein by reference, no Nomination Participant and no associate of any Nomination Participant has had or will have a direct or indirect material interest in any transaction since the beginning of the Company’s last fiscal year or any currently proposed transactions in which the Company was or is to be a participant and the amount involved exceeds $120,000.
 
 
(xii)(A) and
(B).
According to the Company’s public filings, each non-employee director receives an annual cash retainer of $110,000 and $1,500 for each board of directors’ and stockholders’ meeting attended in excess of twelve in a calendar year.  The additional cash retainer for the Presiding Director, if any, and the Chairman of each of the Compensation Committee and the Nominating Committee is $10,000 and the additional cash retainer for the Chairman of the Audit Committee is $20,000.  Meeting fees for special committees of the Board are set by the Board at the time of the formation of the special committee.  Pursuant to the Company’s Outside Directors Compensation Plan, each non-employee director received an annual unrestricted grant of Company common stock approximately equal in value to $130,000 and subject to certain stock ownership guidelines.
 
The Group believes that the Company maintains, at its expense, a policy of insurance which insures its directors and officers.  The Bylaws also contain provisions that provide for indemnification of directors, unless otherwise prohibited by law.  The Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (as amended, the “Certificate of Incorporation”) contains provisions eliminating the personal liability of a director to the Company or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, subject to some exceptions.  The Group expects that the Nominees, if elected, will be indemnified for service as directors of the Company to the same extent indemnification is provided to the current directors of the Company under the Bylaws and the Certificate of Incorporation.  The Group also believes that, upon election, the Nominees will be covered by the Company’s officer and director liability insurance.
 
The Nomination Participants disclaim any responsibility for the accuracy of the foregoing information extracted from the Company’s public filings.
 
In consideration of the Nominees’ agreement to be nominees for election to the Board, Marcato and each Nominee has entered into an Engagement and Indemnification Agreement described in Section I(B)(iii) above, a form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit B.

Except as set forth in Item 5(b)(1) of Section I(B)(vii) or in Appendix I, the Nominees will not receive any compensation from the Group to serve as nominees for election or as a director, if elected, of the Company.  Each Nominee has executed a written consent agreeing to be a nominee for election as a director of the Company and to serve as a director if so elected, which consents are attached hereto as Exhibit A.  Other than as set forth herein or in Appendix I, no Nomination Participant and no associate of any Nomination Participant has any arrangements or understandings with any person or persons with respect to any future employment by the Company or its affiliates or with respect to any future transactions to which the Company or any of its affiliates will or may be a party.
