Explanation of Responses:
1. As of the effective time (the "Effective Time") of the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of June 22, 2015, as amended, by and among the Issuer (formerly known as Sequential Brands Group, Inc.), Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc., Singer Madeline Holdings, Inc. (which was renamed Sequential Brands Group, Inc. as of the Effective Time) ("Holdings"), and certain wholly owned subsidiaries of Holdings (the "Merger Agreement"), each share of common stock of the Issuer was converted into one share of common stock of Holdings.
2. Carlyle Galaxy Holdings, L.P. ("Carlyle Galaxy") is the beneficial owner of the shares of common stock reported herein. Carlyle Group Management L.L.C. is the general partner of The Carlyle Group L.P., which is a publicly traded entity listed on NASDAQ. The Carlyle Group L.P. is the managing member of Carlyle Holdings II GP L.L.C., which is the general partner of Carlyle Holdings II L.P., which is the general partner of TC Group Cayman Investment Holdings, L.P., which is the general partner of TC Group Cayman Investment Holdings Sub L.P., which is the managing member of Carlyle Equity Opportunity GP, L.L.C., which is the general partner of Carlyle Equity Opportunity GP, L.P., which is the general partner of Carlyle Galaxy Holdings, L.P. Accordingly, each of the foregoing entities may be deemed to share beneficial ownership of the shares of common stock owned of record by Carlyle Galaxy.
3. The warrant was exercisable for an aggregate of up to 1,403,254 shares of common stock of the Issuer (the "Old Warrant") based upon the performance of the Linens 'n Things brand. As of the Effective Time of the Merger Agreement, each Old Warrant was converted into a warrant to purchase shares of common stock of Holdings on the terms and conditions (including applicable strike price and vesting requirements) as were applicable under the Old Warrant.
Remarks:
The disposition of the referenced securities of the Issuer by the reporting persons was made as a result of the business combination of the Issuer and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. with and into wholly owned subsidiaries of Holdings, Singer Merger Sub, Inc. and Madeline Merger Sub, Inc., respectively, which mergers were consummated on December 4, 2015, prior to the filing date for the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Holdings reporting such mergers. As a result of such mergers the Issuer ceased to be a publicly traded company with Holdings becoming the successor issuer to both the Issuer and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. The disposition of all such securities by the reporting person was approved and exempted pursuant to Rule 16b-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
