INCORPORATED, and UBS SECURITIES LLC, Defendants. This stipulation is made with reference to the following facts: 1. On March 6, 2009, the above-referenced action was removed to this Court from the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Alameda. 2. That same day, this Court issued an order setting the Initial Case Management Conference for June 18, 2009. 3. On March 10, 2009, Plaintiffs and certain Defendants filed a stipulation with this Court which provided that -- in light of an anticipated motion to transfer the case to the Untied States District Court for the Southern District of New York pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1404(a) -- Plaintiffs would have until sixty (60) days after the Court enters an order in respect to the anticipated motion to transfer in which to file a Consolidated and Amended Complaint and Defendants' time to answer, move, or otherwise respond to the Complaint would be extended through and including the sixtieth (60th) day after Plaintiffs serve their Consolidated and Amended Complaint. 4. On March 18, 2009 the Court entered an order granting Plaintiffs leave to file a Consolidated and Amended Complaint within sixty (60) days after the Court enters an order in respect to the anticipated motion to transfer and extending the Defendants' time to answer, -2STIPULATION REQUESTING POSTPONEMENT OF JUNE 18, 2009 INITIAL CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE; CASE NO.

On March 26, 2009, counsel for the Wachovia Defendants filed on consent in Miller v. Wachovia Corporation, et al., Case No. CV 09-0998 (RMW) (HRL), a motion to relate the above-referenced action and Orange County Employees' Retirement System, et al. v. Carlson, et al., Case No. CV 09-0999 (MMC) (collectively, the "Related Actions") (attached hereto as Exhibit A). The Miller court has yet to rule on the motion to relate. 6. On May 12, 2009, in anticipation of the Miller court's granting the above- referenced motion to relate, counsel for the Wachovia Defendants filed on consent in the Miller action a motion to transfer the Related Actions to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (attached hereto as Exhibit B). 7. The hearing for the above-referenced motion to transfer is currently scheduled for June 26, 2009. 8. The parties in the Related Actions anticipate that the Miller court will grant the unopposed motion to relate and the unopposed motion to transfer the Related Actions to the Southern District of New York. These anticipated rulings would obviate the need for a case management conference before this Court. IT IS THEREFORE STIPULATED BY THE PARTIES, by and through their undersigned counsel of record, as follows: 1. The Initial Case Management Conference, currently set for June 18, 2009, should be continued until after the court in Miller v. Wachovia Corporation, et al., Case No. CV 09-0998 (RMW) (HRL), rules on the pending motion to relate and motion to transfer, to a date convenient for the Court. /// /// /// /// /// -3STIPULATION REQUESTING POSTPONEMENT OF JUNE 18, 2009 INITIAL CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE; CASE NO.
