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) Represents shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock withheld to satisfy the Issuer's tax withholding obligation upon the vesting of restricted stock units (RSUs) and the issuance of the underlying shares of Class A common stock.
(2) Includes (i) 15,960 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to RSUs granted July 6, 2011, (ii) 15,128 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to RSUs granted January 14, 2011, (iii) 9,255 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to RSUs granted July 6, 2010, and (iv) 2,210 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to RSUs granted July 2, 2009. The 15,960 shares underlying the July 6, 2011 RSUs will be issued when those units vest (subject to an initial performance-vesting requirement) in four successive equal installments upon the Reporting Person's continuation in service with the Issuer through each of August 31, 2012, July 6, 2013, July 6, 2014, and July 6, 2015 vesting dates. The 15,128 shares underlying the January 14, 2011 RSUs will be issued when those units vest in two successive installments over the (footnote continued below)
(3) (continued from footnote 2 above) Reporting Person's period of service with the Issuer through each of the September 15, 2012 and September 15, 2013 vesting dates. The January 14, 2011 RSUs will vest in full on an accelerated basis upon an involuntary termination of the Reporting Person's service without cause. The 9,255 shares underlying the July 6, 2010 RSUs will be issued when those units vest in a series of three successive equal installments upon the Reporting Person's continuation in service with the Issuer through each of the July 6, 2012, July 6, 2013, and July 6, 2014 vesting dates. The 2,210 shares underlying the July 2, 2009 RSUs will be issued when those units vest upon the Reporting Person's continuation in service with the Issuer through the July 2, 2013 vesting date. (footnote continued below)
(4) (continued from footnote 3 above) All of the RSUs are subject to accelerated vesting upon certain changes in ownership or control of the Issuer. Does not include (i) 5,136 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to the performance share award made to the Reporting Person on July 6, 2011 and (ii) 4,356 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to the performance share award made to the Reporting Person on July 6, 2010. Those awards will not actually convert into any shares unless the applicable performance goals are attained at threshold level or above.
(5) Represents shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock underlying RSUs awarded to the Reporting Person. The RSUs are subject to both performance-vesting and service-vesting requirements. Should the performance objective be attained, then 25% of the RSUs will vest upon the Reporting Person's continuation in service with the Issuer through August 31, 2013, and the balance will vest in a series of three successive equal annual installments on the second, third and fourth anniversaries of the July 2, 2012 award date, subject to accelerated vesting upon certain changes in ownership or control of the Issuer. The underlying shares of Class A common stock will, in general, be issued as the RSUs vest (footnote continued below).
(6) (continued from footnote 5 above) The RSUs also include dividend equivalent rights pursuant to which the Reporting Person will be credited with the same dividends on the shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock underlying the RSU award that the Reporting Person would have received had those shares been actually outstanding at the time any dividends are paid on the Issuer's outstanding Class A common stock. The credited dividends will be paid to the Reporting Person at the same time the vested shares of Class A common stock to which they relate are issued under the RSU award. When the vested shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock become issuable following the satisfaction of the applicable performance-vesting and service-vesting requirements, a portion of those shares will be withheld by the Issuer to cover the applicable withholding taxes.
(7) Includes 22,772 shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to the reported RSU award.
(8) Represents the target number of shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock underlying the performance share award made to the Reporting Person. The performance shares are subject to both performance-vesting and service-vesting requirements. For 75% of the performance shares, the applicable performance requirement is tied to the amount by which the Issuer's adjusted free cash flow for the twelve-month period ending August 31, 2015 exceeds its adjusted free cash flow for the twelve-month period ending August 31, 2012. For the remaining 25% of the performance shares, the applicable performance requirement is tied to the difference (measured in terms of the dollar amount of the positive increase or the negative decline) between the Issuer's net revenue for the twelve-month period ending August 31, 2015 and its (footnote continued below).
(9) (continued from footnote 8 above) net revenue for the twelve-month period ending August 31, 2012. The levels at which the various performance goals are attained will determine the actual number of shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock into which the performance shares will be converted. The conversion percentages will range from 0% at threshold level attainment to 100% at target level attainment and 300% at maximum level attainment or above. The Reporting Person will vest in one-third of the shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock into which the performance shares are so converted for each fiscal year within the specified service period (the Issuer's 2013, 2014, and 2015 fiscal years) that the Reporting Person remains in the Issuer's employ. (footnote continued below).
(10) (continued from footnote 9 above) However, the performance shares will immediately convert into fully-vested shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock at target level or above upon certain changes in control or ownership of the Issuer. When the vested shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock become issuable following the satisfaction of the applicable performance-vesting and service-vesting requirements, a portion of those shares will be withheld by the Issuer to cover the applicable withholding taxes. The performance share award does not include any dividend equivalent rights.
(11) Does not include 8,049 target shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock subject to the reported performance share award.
(12) The option will vest and become exercisable for the underlying shares of the Issuer's Class A common stock in a series of four successive equal annual installments on each of the first four one-year anniversaries of the July 2, 2012 grant date upon the Reporting Person's continuation in service with the Issuer through each such annual vesting date, subject to accelerated vesting upon certain changes in ownership or control of the Issuer.
