Explanation of Responses:
1. On July 14, 2016, Arbor Realty Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership, issued Partnership Common Units ("OP Units") to Arbor Commercial Mortgage, LLC ("ACM") and, therefore, Arbor Realty Trust, Inc. (the "Company") issued Special Voting Preferred Stock ("Preferred Shares") to ACM. On August 29, 2018, ACM distributed 577,185 OP Units and Preferred Shares with a fair market value of approximately $6.8 million to two of its partners in consideration for their respective membership interests. The fair market value was determined using the average closing stock price of the Company from August 16, 2018 through August 29, 2018 of $11.86.
2. Mr. Kaufman disclaims beneficial ownership of these securities except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein.
3. In connection with estate planning, on August 22, 2018, Mr. Kaufman sold 1,378,175 OP Units and Preferred Shares with a fair value of approximately $14.6 million to a trust for the benefit of his immediate family administered by independent trustees for approximately $14.6 million of cash. The trustees of the trust engaged an external third party valuation firm to assist the trust in deriving the fair value, which was determined to be $10.58 per share.
