    Community Bank Relocates Store for Increased Convenience

    ROCKLIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Umpqua Bank, a subsidiary of Umpqua Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: UMPQ), has relocated its Stanford Ranch store from 9050 Fairway Drive in Roseville, Calif., to a more centralized location on Stanford Ranch Road in Rocklin, Calif. The new store location was selected for its ease of access and convenience for Umpqua's customers in the region and was designed to serve as a neighborhood hub for the Rocklin community.

    Located at 6061 Stanford Ranch Rd., Rocklin, Calif., the relocated store is part of Umpqua's line of next-generation stores. These stores provide Umpqua's communities with a shared space to do more than banking. In addition to offering Umpqua's full range of financial products and services, Umpqua's next-generation stores offer customers and noncustomers alike the chance to surf the Web, enjoy a cup of fresh Umpqua blend coffee, hear about the latest community events or even view exhibits by local artists.

    "While we've been in the community for four years, we're pleased to provide our customers and the greater community a new facility that gives people a reason to come in, browse, utilize the resources the store has to offer and, of course, do their banking," said Ray Davis, president and CEO of Umpqua Bank.

    The Umpqua Bank Stanford Ranch store features:

        --  Discover Wall - A sustainable alternative to racks of brochures, the
            Discover Wall shares product and service information digitally, through
            touch-screen computers that enable customers to print and take just what
            they need. In addition to banking information, the Digital Wall also
            introduces local artists through animation on 42-inch plasma displays.
        --  Community E-Bulletin Board - This 32-inch plasma display keeps visitors
            up-to-date on local events juxtaposed against photos of the local
            community and its residents. Neighbors are encouraged to upload their
            own photos to become part of the evolving digital bulletin board.
        --  Computer Cafe - Umpqua's Computer Cafes allow visitors to explore the
            Web, network with local businesses at Umpqua's LocalSpace site or bank
            online.
        --  Bank to your own Beat - This ever-changing art display projected on an
            18-foot backdrop connects dynamic animation to Umpqua's in-store music
            program. Visitors will never see the same visuals twice.
    
    

    The 3,100-square-foot store is Umpqua's fourth retail location in the Roseville area and will continue to be managed by Emily Lether. Lether has managed Umpqua's previous Stanford Ranch location since January, and she has been an associate of the company for more than six years.
