Calculated by adding (a) 15,168,269 shares of common stock of Exa Corporation issued and outstanding, multiplied by $24.25, the per share tender offer price, (b) 1,821,830 shares of common stock subject to outstanding stock options with an exercise price less than $24.25 per share, multiplied by $12.76, which is the offer price of $24.25 per share minus the weighted average exercise price for such options of $11.49 per share, and (c) 478,515 shares of common stock subject to outstanding restricted stock units, multiplied by $24.25, the per share tender offer price, in each case as of October 10, 2017. The calculation of the filing fee is based on information provided by Exa Corporation as of October 10, 2017.

(2) The filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 of the Exchange Act and Fee Rate Advisory #1 for fiscal year 2018, issued August 24, 2017, by multiplying the transaction valuation by 0.0001245.

The Schedule TO relates to the offer by Purchaser to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (each, a “Share” and collectively, the “Shares”) of Exa Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Exa”), at a price of $24.25 per Share, payable net to the holder thereof in cash, without interest, subject to any withholding of taxes required by applicable law, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to purchase, dated October 12, 2017 (as it may be amended or supplemented, the “Offer to Purchase”), and the related letter of transmittal (as it may be amended or supplemented, the “Letter of Transmittal,” and, together with the Offer to Purchase, the “Offer”), copies of which are attached to the Schedule TO as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) and (a)(1)(B), respectively.

“On November 9, 2017, Parent, Purchaser and Exa, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Merger Agreement or the Offer to Purchase, agreed that the Offer would be extended to 12:00 midnight (the end of the day), New York City time, on Thursday, November 16, 2017 unless further extended. The extension allows for the expiration of the four (4)-week statutory waiting period contemplated by Sections 11(1) or 11(1a) of the KartG in Austria, which is scheduled to expire no later than midnight (the end of the day) Central European Time on Thursday, November 16, 2017.

On November 10, 2017, Dassault, on behalf of Parent and Purchaser, announced an extension of the Expiration Date of the Offer to 12:00 midnight (the end of the day), New York City time, on Thursday, November 16, 2017. The Offer was previously scheduled to expire at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on November 9, 2017. The Depositary has advised the Purchaser that, as of 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on November 9, 2017, 10,900,791 Shares were tendered pursuant to the Offer, which represented approximately 62% of the Fully Diluted Shares (excluding from the number of tendered Shares, but not from the outstanding Shares, Shares tendered pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures that have not yet been ‘‘received’’ (as such term is defined in Section 251(h)(6)(f) of the DGCL)). In addition, as of such time, Notices of Guaranteed Delivery had been delivered for 81,097 Shares, which, when combined with the Shares tendered and not properly withdrawn from the Offer equal approximately 63% of the Fully Diluted Shares.

Parent and the Purchaser expect the Offer will be consummated promptly following the Expiration Date (as extended hereby), subject to the satisfaction of the remaining closing conditions.

The full text of the press release announcing the extension is attached as Exhibit (a)(5)(E) to the Schedule TO and is incorporated herein by reference.”
