Explanation of Responses:
1. Represents Deferred Stock Units ("DSUs") awarded under the Reservoir Media, Inc. 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the "Plan"). Each DSU is the economic equivalent of one share of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the "Common Stock"), of Reservoir Media, Inc. (the "Issuer"). The Reporting Person acquired these DSUs in connection with the Reporting Person's quarterly compensation for service as a non-employee director. The Reporting Person elected to receive payment of their quarterly compensation in DSUs in lieu of cash. The DSUs will be settled in shares of Common Stock on July 28, 2025.
2. The number of DSUs received was calculated based on $7.82 which was the closing price of the Issuer's Common Stock on the date of grant.
3. Represents 14,953 Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") awarded under the Plan and 3,888 DSUs awarded in connection with the Reporting Person's compensation for service as a non-employee director of the Issuer. Due to his position as the manager of the general partner of a manager of ER Reservoir LLC, Reporting Person has directed the Issuer to transfer shares issued upon settlement of the RSUs and DSUs into the account of ER Reservoir LLC on the applicable Settlement Date. The Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of the underlying shares except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein.
4. The amount of securities shown in this row is owned directly by Richmond Hill Capital Partners, LP ("RHCP"). The Reporting Person is the managing member of the general partner of RHCP and the manager of the general partner of Richmond Hill Investment Co., LP, the investment adviser to RHCP, and may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the shares owned by RHCP. The Reporting Person disclaims any beneficial ownership of any of the Issuer's securities reported herein for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") or otherwise, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein, and the inclusion of the shares in this report shall not be deemed an admission of beneficial ownership of the reported shares for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, or for any other purpose.
5. The amount of securities shown in this row is owned directly by Essex Equity Joint Investment Vehicle, LLC ("EEJIV"). The Reporting Person owns an equity interest in an entity that may be deemed to have a pecuniary interest in the shares owned by EEJIV and therefore may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the shares owned by EEJIV. The Reporting Person disclaims any beneficial ownership of any of the Issuer's securities reported herein for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act or otherwise, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein, and the inclusion of the shares in this report shall not be deemed an admission of beneficial ownership of the reported shares for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, or for any other purpose.
6. The amount of securities shown in this row is owned directly by ER Reservoir LLC (the "Fund"). The Reporting Person is the manager of the general partner of a manager of the Fund and may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the shares owned by the Fund. The amount of securities shown this row also reflects a transfer of 27,625 shares of Common Stock received upon the settlement of RSUs and DSUs that the Reporting Person directed to be transferred to the account of ER Reservoir LLC due to his position as the manager of the general partner of a manager of the Fund. The Reporting Person disclaims any beneficial ownership of any of the Issuer's securities reported herein for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act or otherwise, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein, and the inclusion of the shares in this report shall not be deemed an admission of beneficial ownership of the reported shares for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, or for any other purpose.
