Explanation of Responses:
1. The number of shares assumes that SAEXPLORATION Holdings, Inc.'s (the "Issuer") 6.00% Senior Secured Convertible Notes due 2023 (the "Convertible Notes") are converted at a conversion rate of 173.91304 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share ("Common Stock") per $1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes (with shares of Common Stock rounded down in lieu of any fractional shares). However, upon conversion of the Convertible Notes, the settlement of the conversion right may, at the option of the Issuer, be in the form of shares of Common Stock, cash or a combination of cash and shares of Common Stock in amounts determined in accordance with the indenture for the Convertible Notes and therefore there can be no certainty that the Convertible Notes could be converted into the number of shares provided in column 7.
2. (continued from Footnote 1) Reference is made to the indenture for the Convertible Notes as executed by the Reporting Persons (the "Convertible Notes Indenture"). The Reporting Persons do not acknowledge that the Convertible Notes are derivative securities for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act.
3. The Convertible Notes are convertible at the election of the holder into shares of Common Stock at any time prior to the close of business on the second business day immediately preceding the maturity date for the Convertible Notes as specified in the Convertible Notes Indenture.
4. The Convertible Notes are directly beneficially owned by Whitebox Multi-Strategy Partners, LP ("WMP"), Whitebox Asymmetric Partners, LP ("WAP") and Whitebox Credit Partners, LP ("WCP") (together, the "Private Funds") and may be deemed to be beneficially owned by (a) Whitebox Advisors LLC by virtue of its role as the investment manager of the Private Funds, and (b) Whitebox General Partner LLC by virtue of its role as the general partner of the Private Funds. Each of the Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of the reported Convertible Notes except to the extent of his or its pecuniary interest therein, and affirmatively disclaim being a "group" for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act").
5. The Convertible Notes are directly beneficially owned by WMP.
6. The Convertible Notes are directly beneficially owned by WCP.
7. The Convertible Notes are directly beneficially owned by WAP.
