Explanation of Responses:

* If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 4(b)(v).
** Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) Acquired pursuant to a dividend reinvestment feature of the issuer's non-employee directors' stock incentive plan in connection with restricted stock units held by the reporting person.
(2) Phantom stock is reported in units vs. shares in the D&B Common Stock Fund of the issuer's non-employee directors' deferred compensation plan (the "Plan").
(3) Each phantom stock unit entitles the reporting person to a cash payment based on the value on the payout date of the issuer's common stock corresponding to such units. Based on the $83.36 closing price of the issuer's common stock on the transaction date, each unit corresponds to approximately 2.66 shares.
(4) The reporting person may transfer these phantom stock units to alternative investment funds in the Plan.
(5) These phantom stock units are payable in cash after the reporting person ceases to be a member of the issuer's board of directors.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, see Instruction 6 for procedure.

Potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information contained in this form are not required to respond unless the form displays a currently valid OMB number.
