IEMEDZ DEVON FEELY AT THE

CBSN BAY AREA DESK.

GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM JUST

WRAPPED UP A TOUR OF A

VENTILATOR REFURBISHING SITE IN

SUNNY VAIL.

WE'RE A STATE THAT BELIEVES

IN TAKING RISKS

WITHOUT BEING RECKLESS AND WE

TALK IN TERMS THAT ARE

VERY FAMILIAR TO PEOPLE HERE IN

SILICON VALLEY IN

TERMS OF MOVING AT SPEED TO

ADDRESS PROBLEMS HEAD ON

TO LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES, TO

LEAN INTO THE FUTURE

BOLDLY AND CONFIDENTLY AND

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE

TODAY AT BLOOM IN A REPURPOSED

SITE THAT WAS STORAGE

JUST A FEW DAYS AGO.

AND NOW IS A MANUFACTURING

FACILITY TO ADDRESS THE

ISSUE OF VENTILATION AND

VENTILATORS RATHER FOR OUR

STATE AND INCREASINGLY IS

CAPACITY FOR THE REST OF

THE NATION.

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

RECOGNIZES ITS

RESPONSIBILITY TO PROCURE FROM

FAR AND WIDE ENOUGH

VENTILATORS TO MEET THIS

MOMENT.

STATE HAS BEEN VERY AGGRESSIVE

REACHING OUT THE

PRIVATE SECTOR LOOKING AT

EXISTING STOCK LOOKING AT

OUR CASH THAT EXISTS IN

MULTIPLE STORAGE FACILITIES

THROUGHOUT THE STATE AND THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO

GET THE NATIONAL STOCK PILE

INTO THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA.

THE CHALLENGE IS MULTI PRONG

THAN I THINK

ADVERTISED.

ONE THING TO PROCURE NEW

EQUIPMENT.

ANOTHER THING TO REFURBISH OLD

EQUIPMENT AND THE

CHALLENGE FOR ALL OF US IS TO

DO SO WITH A SENSE OF

URGENCY AND WORK ON THAT

SILICON VALLEY TIMELINE AND

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IS

HAPPENING HERE.

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR

EXAMPLE HAD 514

VENTILATORS THAT HADN'T BEEN

LOOKED AT AND UNBOXED

SINCE 2011.

MANY OF THE BATTERIES WERE NOT

ONLY PASSED THEIR

SELL BY DATES THEY QUITE

LITERALLY WERE NOT WORKING

AND AS A CONSEQUENCE WE SENT

DOWN A FEW HUNDRED OF

OUR VENTILATORS AND ASKED BLOOM

AND ITS CEO AND SAID

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP US IN

THIS CRISIS WAS QUITE

LITERALLY ON THE--WELL, IT WAS

MARCH 17

ST. PATRICK'S DAY THAT WE MADE

THOSE FIRST CALLS AND

HERE YOU SEE BEHIND ME HUNDREDS

OF THESE THAT HAVE

ALREADY BEEN TURNED AROUND.

80 WERE SENT BACK AND

REFORBISHED YESTERDAY WERE

SENT BACK TO THE STATE FOR

DISTRIBUTION ACROSS THE

STATE.

WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE

SECURITY NOW THAT WE ARE

GOING TO GET ADDITIONAL 100

SENT UP TODAY BACK TO

THE STATE CASH AND REMARKABLY

YESTERDAY I WAS DOWN

IN LOS ANGELES WITH MAYOR ERIC

BRINGING IN THE U.S.

NS MERCY AND THERE WAS A CASUAL

CONVERSATION ABOUT

THE 170 VENTILATORS THAT CAME

DIRECTLY TO L.A.

COUNTY.

THE CONVERSATION WASN'T JUST

ABOUT THOSE 170.

IT WAS ABOUT THE FACT THOSE 170

WERE NOT WORKING

AND RATHER THAN L.A.

MEANTING ABOUT IT, RATHER THAN

COMPLAINING ABOUT IT, RATHER

THAN POINTING FINGERS,

RATHER THAN GENERATING

HEADLINES IN ORDER TO

GENERATE MORE STRESS AND

ANXIETY WE GOT A CAR AND A

TRUCK AND WE HAD THOSE 170

BROUGHT HERE TO THIS

FACILITY AT 8:00 A.M.

THIS MORNING AND THEY ARE

QUITE LITERALLY WORKING ON

THOSE VENTILATORS RIELGT

NOW AND WILL HAVE THEM BACK

INTO LOS ANGELES ALL

FIXED.

THAT'S THE SPIRIT OF

CALIFORNIA.

THAT'S THE SPIRIT OF THIS

MOMENT.

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.

TAKE OWNERSHIP AND TAKE IT UPON

OURSELVES TO MEET

THIS MOMENT HEAD ON.

THAT'S THE SPIRIT THAT KR

BROUGHT TO BLOOM AND

THAT'S THE SPIRIT THAT WE HOPE

TO SEE ALL THROUGHOUT

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

350 NOW, 350 MANUFACTURERS HAVE

COME TO THE STATE

SAYING WE WANT TO OFFER A

SIMILAR APPROACH TO

RETOOLING OUR FACILITIES AND

MEETING THIS MOMENT.

TELL US WHAT YOU NEED AND WE

WILL TRY TO MATCH

THAT MOMENT WITH THE KIND OF

MOMENTUM WE'RE SEEING

THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA.

I WANT TO BE QUITE SPECIFIC

WHEN I SAY THAT GAP IS

ALREADY CONVERTING GOWNS AND

MASKS BUT NOT JUST THE

GAP.

ST. JOHN NITZ HAS CONVERTED

THEIR LINES IN TIJUANA

AND IRVINE, CALIFORNIA TO DO

THE SAME.

WE'RE SEEING HAND SANITIZER NOW

BEING PROVIDED.

THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF NATIONAL

ATEDGES TO THIS

WITH ALL DISTILLERIES.

YOU HAVE ANHEIZER BUSCH IN THE

STATE OF CALIFORNIA

SENDING IT TO FOOD BANKS AND

MAKE SURE OUR SENIORS

HAVE HAND SANITIZER IN THEIR

HOMES THROUGH OUR IN

HOME SUPPORT OF SERVICE SYSTEM

HAVE THE SAME BUT

IT'S NOT JUST ANHEIZER BUSCH.

IT IS SMALL COMPANIES LIKE DRY

DIGGING DISTILLERY

THAT ARE DOING EXACTLY THE SAME

THING LARGE AND

SMALL ALL OF THEM MEETING THIS

MOMENT.

7 ELEVEN PICKING UP ONE MILLION

N95 MASKS AT THE

STOCKTON FACILITY.

THEY CALLED UP AND YOU'VE GOT

THE APPLES, THE FACE

BOOKS, THE GOOGLES AND OTHER

REMARKABLE STORIES

THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF PEOPLE

NEEDING THIS MOMENT

BUT NO MORE IMPORTANT MOMENT TO

MEET THAN ADDRESSING

THE ISSUES OF VENTILATORS.

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

CURRENTLY HADS INDEPENDENT

OF OUR HOSPITAL SYSTEM.

WE HAVE PROCURED AND IDENTIFIED

SOME 4,252

VENTILATORS.

OUR GOAL IS TO GET TO 10,000

VENTILATORS.

OF THOSE 4,252 VENTILATORS OVER

1,000 NEED TO BE

REFURBISHED SO PUTTING A LOT

MORE PRESSURE ON K R

AND SUSAN AND THEIR TEAMS TO

CONTINUE TO DO THE GOOD

WORK THEY'RE DOING HERE AND GET

THESE VENTILATORS

OUT IN REAL-TIME BUT THEY'RE

ALSO DOING SOMETHING

EVEN MORE REMARKABLE AND THAT'S

THE SPIRIT OF THE

VALLEY AND KR WILL TALK ABOUT

THIS IN A MOMENT.

WE JUST HAD A TELL CONFERENCE

CALL WITH A LEADER,

DR. WUR AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY

ALREADY WORKING ON

VENTILATORS 2.0.

KR CHALLENGED THE DOCTOR, THE

DOCTOR CHALLENGED KR

TO THINK DEEPLY AND MORE

BROADLY ABOUT HOW WE CAN

USE ONE VENTILATOR FOR

POTENTIALLY MULTIPLE PATIENTS

OR REDUCE THE NEED TO USE TWO

VENTILATORS FOR ONE

PATIENT WHICH IS THE CASE IN

MANY CIRCUMSTANCES AND

THEY'RE ALREADY ITALIAN RATING

IN THAT SPACE AGAIN

THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF

SPIRIT THAT DEFINES THE

BEST OF CALIFORNIA, THE BEST OF

THE VALLEY, BEST OF

THE AMERICAN SPIRIT AS WELL SO

WE'LL CONTINUE TO

PROCURE MORE VENTILATORS.

ELON MUSK IS ABLE TO GET MORE

FOR US.

WE ORDERED 2,000 ON THE WAY AND

WE'LL CONTINUE TO

WORK LIKE WE DID WITH OUR

COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM

TO FIND VENTILATORS.

THEY ALREADY FOUND 192.

THEY HAD 60 YESTERDAY AND GOT A

CALL ANY MORNING

FROM THE CHANCELLOR SAYING

WE'RE UP TO 192.

SO EVERYBODY LOOK IN YOUR

BASEMENT.

LOOK IN THAT OLD GARAGE IF YOU

GOT OLD EQUIPMENT

AND YOU WANT TO SEND IT, SEND

IT OUR WAY AND WECHES

SEND IT RIGHT HERE IN THIS

FACILITY AND I'LL TELL

YOU WHAT'S REMARKABLE ABOUT

THESE FACILITIES IS NOT

JUST THE PHYSICAL

INFRASTRUCTURE OF CONVERTING A

STORAGE FACILITY TO A

MANUFACTURING FACILITY IT'S

THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE MASKS

BEHIND ME THAT ARE

VOLUNTEERING THEIR TIME AND

THEIR PARTNERSHIP THAT

IS DEMONSTRATABLE BY CROSS

POLLINATING OTHER VALLEY

BASED BUSINESSES THAT HAVE A

UNIQUE EXPERTISE ON

THAT LINE AND BRINGING THAT

WORK FORCE IN AS WELL TO

MEET THIS MOMENT.

SO THERE'S A LIMITLESSNESS IN

OUR MINDSET.

A LIMITLESSNESS IN THE

POSSIBILITY THAT WE BELIEVE

WE HAVE TO MEET THIS MOMENT AND

THERE IS A SOBERNESS

THAT COMES WITH THAT MOMENT AS

WELL.

JUST YESTERDAY ICU NUMBERS WENT

UP 105% OVERNIGHT

IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

OUR HOSPITALIZATION NUMBERS

WENT UP 38.6%

OVERNIGHT IN THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA.

I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF

APPROPRIATE ATTENTION ON

HOW MANY POSITIVES THERE ARE.

WE LOOK LESS TO THOSE NUMBERS

MORE TO THE

HOSPITALIZATION AND THE ICU

NUMBERS TO DRIVE OUR

POLICY AND DRIVE OUR

ORIENTATION AROUND HOW WE

ADDRESS THAT POLICY THROUGH

APPLICATION AND

IMPLEMENTATION.

THE OVERALL NUMBERS WENT UP

22%.

THEY WERE UP 26% YESTERDAY.

YOU START DOING THE MATH THIS

IS NOW MADE MORE

REAL.

IT'S CERTAINLY MADE REAL IN THE

EAST COAST AND IS

OBVIOUSLY MANIFESTING AS A LOT

OF OUR MODELING

SUGGESTS HERE ON THE WEST

COAST.

THAT'S WHY PHYSICAL DISTANCING

REMAINS THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO TO

MEET THIS MOMENT.

I'M ASKED ALL THE TIME BY

INDIVIDUALS WHAT CAN I

AS AN INDIVIDUAL TO DO MEET

THIS MOMENT HEAD ON.

YOU HAVE NO MORE POWER AND

POTENCY IN TERMS OF

ANSWERING THAT QUESTION THAN

PHYSICALLY DISTANCING

YOURSELF FROM OTHER PEOPLE.

THOSE STAY AT HOME ORDERS ARE

REAL AND THEY ARE

OPERATIONAL IN THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA.

EVERY PART OF OUR STATE.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO TAKE THEM

SERIOUSLY.

PEOPLE ASK AS A FOLLOW UP HOW

LONG DO YOU THINK

THIS WILL LAST?

THAT IS DETERMINED ON OUR

DECISIONS.

NOT OUR CONDITIONS.

WE'RE NOT FATALISTS.

I SAY THIS ALL THE TIME.

OUR FATE AND FUTURE IS NOT

SOMETHING TO

EXPERIENCE.

IT'S SOMETHING TO MANIFEST.

IF WE MAKE THE DECISION

INDIVIDUAL BY INDIVIDUAL

TO KEEP OURSELF SAFE AND BY

KEEPING OTHER PEOPLE AT

DISTANCE SOCIALLY CONNECTED

PHYSICALLY APART THEN WE

HAVE THE CAPACITY TO BEND THAT

CURVE AND THE ONE

TREATMENT IF WE ARE

UNSUCCESSFUL IN THAT RESPECT

THAT IS OUR BACK UP AND OUR

MESSAGE HERE TODAY OUR

VENTILATORS BECAUSE THE ONE

TREATMENT THAT WE KNOW

WORKS ARE VENTILATORS AND THE

ONE TREATMENT WE HAVE

AT OUR DISPOSAL ARE

VENTILATORS.

THERE'S A LOT OF CONVERSATIONS

NONE MORE THAN HERE

IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WITH

BIO INNOVATIONS AND

THERAPEUTICS THE UCS,

STANFORDS, USC, CEDARS,

TESTIMONY CELL IN THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA AROUND

TREATMENT AND ALL OF THESE NEW

TREATMENTS THAT ARE

BEING PROMOTED BUT THE ONE

TREATMENT THAT WE KNOWS

ARE VENTILATORS SO WE NEED MORE

OF THEM.

WE NEED MORE KRS, BLOOMS AND

MORE PEOPLE TO

RECOGNIZE WE CAN MEET THIS

MOMENT AND NOT JUST ROLL

OVER AND ACCEPT THESE AI

PROGRAMS, THESE DATA SETS

AS ULTIMATE DETERMINATION OF

OUR FATE WHEN WE CAN

BEND THOSE KUIVES BY BENDING TO

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL

CAPACITY THAT WE KNOW RESIDES

WITHIN THE STATE AND

ACROSS THE NATION.

SO THAT'S THE LONG WINDED

MESSAGE TODAY DEEP

PRIDE.

DEEP RESPECT FOR WHAT IS

HAPPENING HERE IN SILICON

VALLEY AND NOW LET ME TURN IT

OVER TO THE MAYOR THAT

IS LEADING THIS REGION AND I

WANT TO JUST MAKE THIS

POINT ABOUT MAYOR SAM.

NOT ONLY LEADING THIS REGION,

HE'S BEEN LEADING

THE STATE WITH THE COUNTY

SUPERVISORS HERE IN SANTA

CLARA COUNTY HERE IN SAN JOSE

FIRST REGION IN THE

STATE THIS MAYOR TAKING CHARGE

IN LEADING ON THE

STAY AT HOME ORDERS AND

ASSERTING HIMSELF IN

REAL-TIME DEMANDING THAT WE DO

MORE AND DO BETTER TO

HELP HIM MEET THIS MOMENT.

HE'S ALSO THE HEAD OF THE BIG

13 MAYORS IN THE

STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND WHEN WE

TALK ABOUT

LEADERSHIP, WE CAN TALK ABOUT

IT IN THE ABSTRACT OR

WE CAN SEE LEADERSHIP AT

ACTION.

MAYOR SAM IS ONE OF THOSE

LEADERS AND I CANNOT

THANK HIM ENOUGH AND THANK HIM

FOR BUILDING THESE

PARTNERSHIPS AND HELPING US

SOURCE THE RESOURCEFUL

MIND SET THAT WE ARE ADVANCING

HERE IN TERMS OF THE

CONVERSATIONS TODAY AND THE

CONVERSATIONS OVER THE

COURSE OF THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO

MEET THIS MOMENT.

SAM?

THANK YOU.

GOVERNOR I WANT TO THANK YOU

FOR EXCEPTIONAL

LEADERSHIP IN THIS CRISIS NOT

JUST FOR YOUR

RESPONSIVENESS TO LOCAL

COMMUNITIES LIKE OURS IN THE

SILICON VALLEY BUT YOUR EMBRACE

OF THE VISION OF

SILICON VALLEY THAT YOU GET IT

ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

THAT SILICON VALLEY CAN PROVIDE

TO TACKLE THIS AND

I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOU AND

YOUR TEAM HAVE DONE.

YOU MENTIONED LOCAL LEADERSHIP

AND I NEED IT

CLEARLY ACKNOWLEDGED FROM THEIR

STAFF TO REALLY MOVE

FORWARD AND ENSURE THAT WE HAD

STAY AT HOME MANDATES

IN PLACE AND ALL OF THE OTHER

AGGRESSIVE ACTIONS

WE'VE TAKEN.

I'M GRATEFUL TO THEM AS WELL.

I HAVE SPENT THE LAST 90

MINUTES HERE BEING

AMAZED, BEING AMAZED AT ALL OF

THE WORK THAT KR AND

SUSAN BRENNAN AND THEIR TEAMS

HAVE DONE IN AN

INCREDIBLY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME

AND WHEN THE

GOVERNOR PUT OUT A CALL, PUT

OUT A CHALLENGE AND HE

UNDERSTOOD IN SILICON VALLEY

ALL WE NEED IS A

CHALLENGE AND A DEADLINE AND

GREAT ENTREPRENEURS

RESPOND AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VE

SEEN FROM K R AND

SUSAN AND THEIR TEAMS.

THE FOLKS BEHIND ME WORKING

UNBELIEVABLE HOURS

BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTAND THE

URGENCY OF THIS MOMENT

AND THIS ISN'T JUST A STORY

ABOUT BRILLIANT MINDS.

IT'S ABOUT INSPIRED HEARTS AND

I'M SO--JUST SO

ENHEARTENED BY WHAT I HAVE SEEN

FROM THE INCREDIBLE

PEOPLE BEHIND ME WHO ARE

WORKING ALL HOURS AND

FINDING WHATEVER CREATIVE WAY

THEY CAN TO MAKE

THINGS WORK AND I REALLY HAVE

TO GIVE CREDIT TO

LEADERSHIP OF KR.

I KNOW THIS IS NOTHING NEW FOR

HIM AND I THINK

IT'S PROBABLY SOMETHING GENETIC

FOR HIM AND HIS BIFF

BECAUSE I MET THEIR CHILDREN

EVEN BEFORE I MET KR.

HIS SON LAUNCHED AN EFFORT AND

DEVELOPED AN APP TO

REPURPOSE FOOD TO HELP THOSE

WHO ARE NEEDY AND HIS

DAUGHTER WORKING ON INCREDIBLE

INNOVATIONS TO HELP

US ENSURE WE HAVE CLEAN WATERS

IN OUR CITIES AND KR

IS NO SLOUCH HIMSELF LEADING AN

INCREDIBLE COMPANY

THAT IS HELPING US TO REMOVE

MILLIONS OF POUNDS OF

CARBON DIOXIDE THAT WOULD BE

UNLEASHED IN THE

ENVIRONMENT THROUGH BLOOM

CELLS.

I'M SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL THAT

THEIR ENTIRE TEAM

ARE HERE IN OUR VALLEY DOING

SUCH GREAT WORK FOR ALL

OF US NOT JUST HERE BUT

OBVIOUSLY NOW THROUGHOUT THE

NATION.

TWO WEEKS AGO I GOT A CALL FROM

KR LATE AT NIGHT

AND HE HAD MENTIONED HE WAS

WORKING WITH THE

GOVERNOR'S TEAM AND SAID WE

NEED TO FIND A WAY TO

ENSURE IF WE CAN REFURBISH

THESE THAT WE CAN GET

THEM CERTIFIED AND TESTED AND I

REACHED OUT TO

DR. BONNIE AT STANFORD AND SHE

CONNECTED THEM AND

THEIR TEAM TO THE PULMONARY LAB

AND DR. W WU AND I

THINK HE HAS EIGHT GREATEST A

PRIOR RELATIONSHIP BUT

TO ENSURE THAT TESTING

CERTIFICATION COULD HAPPEN.

IT IS HERE IN SILICON VALLEY

WHERE WE CAN CONFRONT

A CRISIS CAN CREATIVITY AND

COLLABORATION AND THEY

HAVE SHOWN THAT HERE AND AS WE

MENTIONED

COLLABORATION WE HAVE LAUNCHED

AN EFFORT HERE IN

SILICON VALLEY CALLED SILICON

VALLEY STRONG AND

SILICON VALLEY STRONG .ORG OUR

RESIDENTS CAN FIND

HOW TO GET AND GIVE HELP AND

SINCE WE LAUNCHED IT

WITHIN A COUPLE DAYS WE'VE SEEN

1700 VOLUNTEERS STEP

UP AND SAY WE WANT TO HELP

WHETHER IT'S DELIVERING

FOOD TO SENIORS OR PROVIDING

ANY OTHER KINDS OF

CRITICAL NEEDS THAT WE HAVE IN

OUR NON PROFITS MORE

THAN $14 MILLION COMMITTED AND

PARTNERSHIP WITH

DESTINATION HOME AND THE

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION SO

MANY OTHERS.

WE ARE SEEING THIS COMMUNITY

COME TOGETHER AND

AGAIN IT'S THE CREATIVITY AND

COLLABORATION SILICON

VALLEY THAT MAKES IT HAPPEN AND

OF COURSE BECAUSE

THE INSPIRED LEADERSHIP OF THE

GOVERNOR BEHIND ME

I'M REALLY GRATEFUL TO BE HERE

AND TO BE INSPIRED BY

ALL THAT IS HAPPENING ALL

AROUND US AND WITH NO

FURTHER ADIEU I'D LIKE TO

INTRODUCE THE GREAT CEO OF

BLOOMBERG ENERGY KR.
