                              expected to remain
                              fairly constant, but
                              the yield will
                              continue to increase
                              until the groves

                      Historical Prices

•   Global olive oil prices exhibit a high degree of volatility associated with supply
    and demand dynamics and global macroeconomic activity. Spain, as the largest
    producer of olive oil, is effectively the price setter in the global market.

  calculate the fair value of the 2010 crop
• Direct costs associated with the Groves based on historical
  experience and expected future costs
• Average interest cost of 8%
• 55% of permanent water entitlements are available and a
  temporary water price of $250 per ML (see next slide)
