(d) On March 25, 2013, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Best Buy Co., Inc. ("Best Buy" or the "registrant") elected Bradbury H. Anderson and Allen U. Lenzmeier as Class 2 directors, effective immediately. Mr. Anderson and Mr. Lenzmeier were nominated by Mr. Richard M. Schulze to serve on the Board pursuant to the Letter Agreement between the registrant and Mr. Schulze described in Item 8.01 below, which description is incorporated herein by reference, and the agreement between the registrant and Mr. Schulze described in Item 8.01 of the registrant's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 14, 2012, the description of which is incorporated herein by reference.

It is expected that Mr. Anderson and Mr. Lenzmeier will serve on one or more committees of the Board. Committee assignments are expected to be made at the next regular meeting of the Board, scheduled to be held in April 2013. Once determined, the committee assignment(s) will be disclosed by the registrant in a Current Report on Form 8-K.

There are no transactions or relationships between the registrant and Mr. Anderson that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

There is a relationship between the registrant and Mr. Lenzmeier that is reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. Mr. Lenzmeier's daughter-in-law, Jessica Zou, has been an employee of Best Buy since May 2003 and is currently a property manager at Best Buy's corporate headquarters. In fiscal 2013, her gross income was approximately $132,000. Mr. Lenzmeier's family member is compensated at a level comparable to the compensation paid to non-family members in similar positions at Best Buy and receives other benefits made generally available to Best Buy employees in similar positions.

Mr. Anderson and Mr. Lenzmeier are expected to stand for election to the registrant's Board at the 2013 Regular Meeting of Shareholders, as provided in the Letter Agreement described in Item 8.01 below. If elected by the shareholders, Mr. Anderson and Mr. Lenzmeier will each serve for a two-year term expiring at the 2015 Regular Meeting of Shareholders and until their successor has been duly elected and qualified, or until their individual earlier death, resignation or removal.
