Explanation of Responses:
1. Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) converted into common stock on a one-for-one basis.
2. Each restricted stock unit (RSU) represents a right to receive one share of ESCA common stock pursuant to the Escalade, Incorporated 2007 Incentive Plan. Shares will be delivered to the reporting person upon vesting of the applicable RSUs, unless the reporting person defers receipt.
3. On March 2, 2017, the reporting person was granted 1,700 RSUs, subject to vesting in one third increments on each of March 2, 2019, March 2, 2020, and March 2, 2021, if (1) the reporting person remained employed by Escalade on the applicable vesting date, and (2) certain market performance conditions established by the Compensation Committee of the Escalade Board of Directors were satisfied. The reporting person has been continuously employed by Escalade through March 2, 2021 and the market performance conditions were satisfied as of August 12, 2020. Two thirds (1,133) of the RSUs previously vested and settled as reported in a Form 4 filed August 13, 2020. This Form 4 reports the vesting and settlement of the remaining 567 RSUs on March 2, 2021.
