Bram Goldsmith was Chief Executive Officer of City National Corporation until October 1995.

Russell Goldsmith is the son of Bram Goldsmith.

Since 1967, the Bank's Pershing Square Banking Office and a number of Bank departments have occupied leased space in the office building located at 606 South Olive Street in downtown Los Angeles (the "606 Building"). Since its completion and through October 31, 2003, the 606 Building had been owned by Citinational-Buckeye Building Co., a limited partnership of which Citinational Bancorporation and Olive-Sixth Buckeye Co. were the only general partners, each with a 29% partnership interest. Citinational Bancorporation, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Bank, had an additional 3% interest as a limited partner of Citinational-Buckeye Building Co. Olive-Sixth Buckeye Co. was a limited partnership of which Bram Goldsmith, Chairman of the Board of the Corporation, was a 49% general partner. Therefore, Bram Goldsmith had an indirect 14% ownership interest in Citinational-Buckeye Building Co. The other partners of Citinational-Buckeye Building Co. and Olive-Sixth Buckeye Co. were not affiliated with the Corporation or the Bank.

On October 31, 2003, the building was sold to unrelated parties and the Bank's share of the gain on sale was deferred and is being amortized over the remaining term of its leases. Prior to consummating the sale, the Bank modified and extended the terms of its leases with the owner of the building by entering into a Lease Supplement on May 28, 2003 which applied to all three leases. Prior to modification, the leases expired in 2006. The modifications extend the terms of the leases to between 2009 and 2011 depending on the Bank's exercise of certain options. The modifications also confirmed the Bank's rights to roof top signage so long as the Bank remains the responsible (as contrasted to occupying) party under its leases. Rental rates and other lease terms were negotiated at arms' length and are comparable to, or better than, rentals and lease terms for unaffiliated tenants in the 606 Building. In 2003, the Bank paid Citinational-Buckeye Building Co. a total of $1,404,934 for rent under all leases in the 606 Building and $291,874 for operating expense pass-throughs.

In 1997, Citinational Bancorporation made advances to Citinational-Buckeye Building Co. in the form of both loans and capital contributions. The largest amount outstanding during 2003, including principal and accrued interest, was $4,535,033, which was the amount outstanding at January 30, 2003. Interest continued to accrue on the advances at a variable rate, which was 5.00% at October 31, 2003, based upon the Bank's prime rate. Payment of principal and interest was subordinated to a loan from a lender unaffiliated with the Bank, but was made to the extent of the net cash flow generated by the 606 Building and was paid to the extent of cash available in Citinational Buckeye Building Co. prior to the partnership's liquidation.
