Explanation of Responses:
1. Common stock and derivative securities of Zyla Life Sciences ("Issuer") were disposed of pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 16, 2020 (the "Merger Agreement"), by and among Issuer, Assertio Holdings, Inc. ("Parent"), Assertio Therapeutics, Inc., Alligator Merger Sub, Inc. and Zyla Merger Sub, Inc. ("Merger Sub"), pursuant to which each share of the Issuer's common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the merger of Merger Sub with and into Issuer (the "Effective Time") was converted into the right to receive, and became exchangeable for, (1) 2.5 shares of Parent common stock for each share of Issuer's common stock and (2) any cash in lieu of fractional shares of Parent common stock. Parent common stock had a market value of approximately $0.80 per share at the close of market immediately prior to the Effective Time.
2. Includes unvested time-based and performance-based restricted stock units representing a contingent right to receive 180,864 shares of Issuer common stock upon vesting and settlement of such time-based restricted stock units. At the Effective Time, all outstanding time-based restricted stock units of Issuer were cancelled and, in exchange therefor, each former holder of any such cancelled restricted stock unit has the right to receive a number of shares of fully vested Parent common stock (rounded to the nearest whole number) equal to the product of (1) 2.5 and (2) the number of shares of Issuer common stock covered by such restricted stock unit.
3. At the Effective Time, each outstanding option to purchase shares of Issuer's common stock, whether vested or unvested, that is outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, ceased to represent a right to acquire shares of Issuer common stock and was converted, at the Effective Time, into an option to purchase shares of Parent common stock, on the same terms and conditions (including any vesting or forfeiture provisions or repurchase rights, but taking into account any acceleration thereof provided for in the relevant Issuer equity plan or in the related award document by reason of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement) as were applicable to such Issuer option as of immediately prior to the Effective Time.
4. The number of shares of Parent common stock subject to each such Parent option is equal to (1) the number of shares of Issuer common stock subject to the corresponding Issuer option immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by (2) 2.5, rounded, if necessary, to the nearest whole share of Parent common stock, with an exercise per share (rounded to the nearest whole cent) adjusted as provided in the Merger Agreement.
