Explanation of Responses:
(1)  This non-qualified stock option was granted pursuant to the Worthington Industries, Inc. 2010 Stock Option Plan. Date listed is the first day any portion of the option vested. Additional portions of 33.33% of the option vested annually on 6/30/2013 and 6/30/2014.
(2)  The account tracks common shares on a one-for-one basis.
(3)  Prior to October 1, 2014, the account balances related to the theoretical Worthington Industries, Inc. common share deemed investment option could be immediately transferred to other investment options under the terms of the Worthington Industries, Inc. Amended and Restated 2005 Deferred Compensation Plan, as amended (the "2005 NQ Plan").
(4)  The 2005 NQ Plan provides that effective October 1, 2014 and thereafter, any amount credited in a participant's account to the phantom stock fund (i.e. theoretical Worthington Industries, Inc. common shares deemed investment option) may not be transferred to an alternative deemed investment option under the 2005 NQ Plan until distribution from the 2005 NQ Plan. Distributions are made only in common shares of Worthington Industries, Inc. and generally commence upon a person's leaving employment with Worthington Industries, Inc.
(5)  The amount shown reflects additional unfunded theoretical Worthington Industries, Inc. common shares (i.e. phantom stock) credited pursuant to the dividend reinvestment feature of the 2005 NQ Plan.
