SAN FRANCISCO -- January 7, 2013

Chase announced today it has opened its 1,000^th branch in California at 2436
Almaden Rd., San Jose. The milestone will be marked by celebrations at the new
San Jose branch and at a new Chase location in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond
neighborhood.

“We are so proud to be able to support California with our 1000^th branch,”
said Ryan McInerney, CEO of Consumer Banking. “In four years, we’ve gone from
not being in California at all to being the second largest bank in the state.
We now serve 15 million Californians and we feel like this is home to us.”

Chase has opened nearly 300 new branches in California in just the past four
years. Its rapid growth has created 7,800 new jobs. The company now employs
nearly 21,000 Californians and has extended more than $2.2 million in new
loans and lines of credit to help consumers and small businesses across the
state.

“It’s a privilege to celebrate this important milestone with our Bay Area
customers and communities,” said Andy Carney, California Regional Manager for
Chase Consumer and Business Banking. “Our customers have made this day
happen.”

Underscoring its commitment to the communities it serves, Chase employees will
mark this special occasion by filling 1,000 backpacks with school supplies for
students at five San Francisco elementary schools: Bret Harte Elementary,
George Washington Carver Elementary, Dr. Charles R. Drew Elementary, Malcolm X
Elementary and Gloria R. Davis Middle School.

The new branches will feature two of Chase’s newest customer service
innovations:

  *Self-service banking kiosks that offer the services of a traditional ATM,
    plus new options including bill-pay and cash withdrawal in denominations
    from $1 to $100;
  *The ability to instantly issue working debit cards for customers opening
    new accounts, or who are in need of a replacement card.
