* 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) No shares were sold. Reflects deemed surrender of shares to satisfy the exercise price due upon exercise of the associated options.
(2) Tandem awards correspond on a one-to-one basis with options granted to FIG LLC, the Company's manager (or an affiliate of the Company's manager), such that exercise by an employee of the tandem award would result in the corresponding option held by the manager being cancelled. Upon the grant of the options to the manager (or an affiliate), such options are fully vested and become exercisable over a 30-month period (the "Total Exercisability Period") in monthly installments beginning on the first of each month following the month in which the options were granted. (Continued in Footnote 3)
(3) When tandem awards are granted with respect to manager options, the manager options become exercisable in monthly installments over a portion of the Total Exercisability Period equal to the product of (i) the ratio of tandem awards to the total number of related options (including options underlying such tandem awards) multiplied by (ii) 30 (such period, the "Manager Exercisability Period"). Following the Manager Exercisability Period, the tandem awards vest in monthly installments on the first of each month over the remainder of the Total Exercisability Period and become exercisable only at the end of the Total Exercisability Period.
(4) Represents the expiration date of the related manager option. In general, the expiration date of the tandem award occurs prior to the expiration date of the underlying option.
