Explanation of Responses:
(1) Subsequent to the Rollover, and immediately prior to the effective time of the LLC Merger, all of the outstanding vested Common Units and Incentive Units of Focus LLC with a hurdle amount that is less than the Merger Consideration were exchanged for Class A Shares. The Incentive Units were first converted into a number of Common Units that took into account the Merger Consideration and such Incentive Units' aggregate hurdle amount, and the resulting Common Units were then exchanged for an equal number of Class A Shares (the conversions, collectively, the "Vested Units Exchanges"). As a result of the Vested Units Exchanges, the reporting person no longer beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, any Common Units or Incentive Units.
(2) Immediately prior to the effective time of the LLC Merger, each Incentive Unit, whether vested or unvested, with a hurdle amount that was equal to or greater than the Merger Consideration, was forfeited and cancelled for no consideration. As a result of the Mergers, the reporting person no longer beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, any Incentive Units.
(3) Represents securities held by the Adolf Family Trust II, an irrevocable trust established by the reporting person for the benefit of his children. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities owned by the trust.
(4) The hurdle amount is set at the time of grant and typically represents the estimated fair value of a common unit on the date of grant. The figure reflected in column 2 is the hurdle amount assigned to each incentive award.
