Explanation of Responses:
(1)  Each notional share - mandatory represents a deferred stock unit and entitles the holder thereof with the right to receive one share of Issuer common stock under the Issuer's deferred compensation plan for non-employee directors.
(2)  Such shares are issuable, at the election of the reporting person, to begin on either (i) a date prior to the reporting person's retirement date, provided that such date is no earlier than the January 1 in the year following the plan period during which such fees would otherwise have been payable to the reporting person, (ii) within 90 days following the reporting person's retirement date, or (iii) such later date as selected by the reporting person, provided however, that payment must commence in the year the reporting person attains age 70 1/2.
(3)  Each restricted stock unit represents a contingent right to receive one share of PRU common stock or the economic equivalent thereof. The restricted stock units become payable, in PRU common stock or in cash, at the election of the reporting person, upon or following the reporting person's termination of service as a Director unless the reporting person elects an earlier date pursuant to the terms of the Prudential Financial, Inc. 2011 Deferred Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors.
(4)  The restricted stock units vest the earlier of the annual meeting or in one year on May 12, 2021 and were deferred under the Prudential Financial, Inc. 2011 Deferred Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors.
