Information with respect to the beneficial ownership of Class A Common Stock by the individuals listed in
Annex A of the Schedule 13D is set forth in Annex A of Amendment No. 8 to the Schedule 13D and is incorporated herein by reference in response to this Item 5.

(c) On September 14, 2017, EMC Sub sold 2,308,807 shares of Class A Common Stock to the Issuer for a cash payment of $300 million in an initial
closing pursuant to the August 2017 Stock Purchase Agreement. The shares delivered to the Issuer on September 14, 2017 had a value of approximately $240 million based on a closing price of $107.72 per share as reported on the New York
Stock Exchange on September 11, 2017, less a discount of 3.5% from that per share price. Under the August 2017 Stock Purchase Agreement, EMC Sub will deliver to the Issuer the remaining shares of Class A Common Stock at a later date in a
second closing that is expected to occur in the third quarter of the 2018 fiscal year of Dell Technologies. The total number of shares of Class A Common Stock to be purchased by the Issuer under the August 2017 Stock Purchase Agreement will be

volume-weighted average per share price, and subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The terms of the August 2017 Stock Purchase Agreement are described in Amendment No. 8 to the Schedule 13D filed on August 24, 2017. A copy
