(1) The Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") were granted on May 10, 2012, pursuant to the Mattel, Inc. 2010 Equity and Long-Term Compensation Plan. Each RSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of Common Stock (or, at the election of Mattel, Inc., a cash amount equal to the fair market value of such share on the settlement date). The RSUs are accompanied by dividend equivalent rights.
(2) The RSUs will vest in four equal installments, as follows: (i) 25% on August 10, 2012, (ii) 25% on November 10, 2012, (iii) 25% on February 10, 2013 and (iv) 25% on the earlier of May 10, 2013 or the day before the first annual meeting of Mattel's stockholders that occurs after the grant date. Vested RSUs generally will be settled on the third anniversary of the grant date. On the settlement date, for each vested RSU, the reporting person will receive one share of Common Stock (or, at the election of Mattel, Inc., a cash amount equal to the fair market value of one share of Common Stock on the settlement date).
(3) Distributions from the reporting person's phantom stock account will be in the form of shares of Mattel, Inc. common stock equal in value to the value of the phantom stock account.
(4) The phantom stock units will be settled in shares of Mattel, Inc. common stock following the reporting person's separation from service with Mattel, Inc.
