    ROK Global PLC, the mobile and web technologies, applications and services
    company, has announced a partnership with leading online luxury and fashion
    retailer, Xiu.com, to launch JP Selects, ROK´s online retail company aimed
    at eco-conscious consumers, in China.

    Xiu.com, backed by $100 million investment from KPCB and Warburg Pintus, is
    China´s biggest online luxury and fashion shopping portal with a mission to
    ´Bring the Best of the World to China´. Xiu.com has 1,300 employees and
    offices and warehouses in Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

    Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK Global said ´JP Selects has amassed a
    unique and fast-growing portfolio of the best eco-friendly and sustainable
    brands and products into one portal which we market to the ethical consumer
    in the United States with ever-increasing success. Our partnership with
    Xiu.com is a fantastic opportunity to develop JP Selects into the rapidly
    growing online consumer market right across China.´

    Internet penetration in China now reaches 28% of the population, with 187
    million Chinese people shopping online in 2011. More than 360 million
    Chinese people are expected to become online shoppers by 2015.

    Xiu.com itself has grown to a current total in excess of 2 million
    registered users generating 4 million online page views per day.

    Mitchell hair care systems and Patron Tequila, the world´s biggest premium
    tequila brand, and UK serial technology entrepreneur, Jonathan Kendrick.

    In addition to JP Selects, ROK has pioneered the development of several
