* Based upon information contained in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed by the Issuer with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 14, 2017, reflecting 35,937,500 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Issuer (“Class A Common Stock”) outstanding as of November 10, 2017.

The Reporting Person does not directly own any shares of common stock or other equity of Switch, Inc. (the “Issuer”). By reason of the provisions of Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act, the Reporting Person is deemed to own beneficially the common stock of the Issuer that is owned by Intel Capital Corporation (“Intel Capital”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Reporting Person.

The Issuer is the manager of Switch, Ltd., operates and controls all of the business and affairs of Switch, Ltd. and, through Switch, Ltd. and its subsidiaries, conducts its business.

Intel Capital holds 9,082,665 shares of Class B common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Issuer (“Class B Common Stock”). Intel Capital also holds 9,082,665 common units of Switch, Ltd. (the “Common Units”). The shares of Class B Common Stock and the Common Units were acquired in connection with the recapitalization of Switch Ltd. and the Issuer’s corporate restructuring and initial public offering. One share of Class B Common Stock was issued for each Common Unit held by Intel Capital. Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Issuer, the shares of Class B Common Stock confer only voting rights (one vote per share) and do not confer any incidents of economic ownership to the holders thereof. The Common Units have an economic interest in Switch, Ltd., but no voting interest. The Common Units are redeemable on a one-for-one basis for shares of Class A Common Stock or, at the election of the Issuer, cash equal to a volume weighted average market price of a share of Class A Common Stock. Upon any redemption of Common Units, one share of Class B Common Stock will be automatically forfeited and cancelled for each Common Unit so redeemed.
