Explanation of Responses:

(*) If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 5(b)(v).
(**) Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) Each share of Class B Common Stock is convertible at any time at the option of the Reporting Person into one share of Class A Common Stock and has no expiration date. Each share of Class B Common Stock will convert automatically into one share of Class A Common Stock in connection with: (i) any transfer, whether or not for value, except for certain permitted transfers described in the Issuer's amended and restated certificate of incorporation, (ii) such time as the aggregate number of shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding ceases to represent 5% of the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock outstanding, (iii) the vote of 85% of the holders of Class B Common Stock outstanding; and (iv) following the date of the death or permanent disability of Better HoldCo, Inc.'s founder.
(2) Each restricted stock unit represents a contingent right to receive one share of the Issuer's Class B Common Stock.
(3) The restricted stock units were granted on March 1, 2022 and will vest subject to both time- and liquidity-based criteria. Under the time-based criteria, 14/48ths of the restricted stock units became vested on the grant date and the remaining restricted stock units will vest in equal 1/48ths of the restricted stock units on the first business day of each month such that the restricted stock units will be fully vested as of July 1, 2025. The liquidity-based criteria was satisfied on August 22, 2023 upon the consummation of the business combination between the Issuer (f/k/a Aurora Acquisition Corp), Aurora Merger Sub I, Inc. and Better HoldCo, Inc.
