Explanation of Responses:
1. Consists of Class A shares withheld by the issuer in order to satisfy the minimum tax withholding obligations of the reporting person arising in connection with the delivery of Class A shares underlying vested restricted share units (the "RSUs").
2. Reported amount includes 656,581 RSUs granted under the Apollo Global Management, LLC 2007 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the "2007 Plan"). Each RSU represents the contingent right to receive, in accordance with the issuance schedule set forth in the applicable RSU award agreement, one Class A share for each vested RSU. Subject to accelerated vesting in certain circumstances, the RSUs vest in installments in accordance with the terms of the applicable RSU award agreement, provided the reporting person remains in service through the applicable vesting date.
3. Reported amount includes 224,911 RSUs granted to the reporting person under the 2007 Plan that are vested and were transferred by the reporting person to a trust for the benefit of the reporting person's spouse and children for which the reporting person's spouse is the trustee (the "Trust"). Each RSU held by the Trust represents the contingent right to receive, in accordance with the issuance schedule set forth in the applicable RSU award agreement between the Issuer and the reporting person, one Class A share for each vested RSU. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of all securities held by the Trust except to the extent of the reporting person's pecuniary interest therein.
