The California Place is an exciting new company that is collaborating with NuPay and East West
Bank, and will launch a powerful ecommerce portal utilizing Chinese Free Trade Zones as a
platform to offer the finest California wine, and other products, direct-to-consumers in China.

Graham will describe the 2013 ecommerce launch plans and operational structure, and will outline long-term plans for the
company to develop a brick and mortar California Place in Shanghai in 2016, followed by other locations in China. The
California Place will be similar to the Ferry Building in San Francisco, but will also house both boutique and well known and
iconic California merchants and brands. Plans call for an emphasis on wine and organic food sales and promotions together with
showcasing the finest merchants and brands exemplary of a sustainable and healthy California lifestyle.
