Company Profile and Business Description for Collectors Universe

Collectors Universe, Inc., incorporated on February 3, 1999, provides authentication and grading services to dealers and collectors of coins, trading cards, event tickets, autographs and historical and sports memorabilia (collectibles). The Company operates through three segments: coins, trading cards and autographs, and other collectibles. The Company is engaged in the authentication, grading, publication and Web-based advertising, subscription-based business and product sales. The other collectibles segment includes the Certified Coin Exchange (CCE) subscription business, the Coinflation.com business and its collectibles conventions business. The Company is also engaged in selling of printed publications and collectibles price guides and advertising in such publications; selling of membership subscriptions in its Collectors Club; selling of subscriptions to its CCE dealer-to-dealer Internet bid-ask market for certified coins and to its CoinFacts Website, which offers a source for historical numismatic information and content in the United States, and conducting collectibles trade shows and conventions. The Company is also engaged in selling collectibles inventory, which primarily consists of collectible coins that it has purchased under its coin grading warranty program.

The Company has developed brands, such as PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service), which is the brand name for its independent coin authentication and grading service; PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator), which is the brand name for its independent sports and trading cards authentication and grading service, and PSA/DNA (PSA/DNA Authentication Services), which is the brand name for its independent authentication and grading service for vintage autographs and memorabilia. As of June 30, 2016, the Company had authenticated and graded approximately 33 million coins and approximately 26 million trading cards. The Company offers PCGS coin authentication and grading services. The Company also provides a warranty as to the accuracy of its coin authentication and grading determinations.

The Company offers PSA trading card authentication and grading services. The Company certifies the authenticity of and assigns quality grades to trading cards using a numeric system with a scale from 1-to-10 that it has developed, together with an adjectival system to describe their condition. The trading cards submitted to the Company for authentication and grading include primarily older or vintage trading cards, particularly of memorable or historically famous players, such as Honus Wagner, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle, and modern or newly produced trading cards of new athletes, such as Derek Jeter, Albert Pujols, Mariano Rivera and Miguel Cabrera.

The Company offers PSA/DNA autograph authentication and grading services. The Company's vintage autograph authentication service involves the rendering of an opinion of authenticity based on an analysis of the signed object, such as the signed document or autographed item of memorabilia, to confirm its consistency with similar materials or items that existed during the signer's lifetime; a comparison of the signature submitted for authentication with exemplars of such signatures, and a handwriting analysis. As of June 30, 2016, the CCE Website features over 100,000 bid and ask prices for certified coins at www.certifiedcoinexchange.com.

The Company publishes authoritative price guides, rarity reports and other collectibles data. The Company publishes the Sports Market Report on a monthly basis primarily for distribution to approximately 5,900 PSA Collectors Club members. The Company sells advertising to dealers and vendors for placement in its publications. The Company manages a Collectors Universe Website and individual Websites for its authentication and grading services. On those Websites, it offers collectible content, relevant to the marketplace for the specific authentication and grading service, some of which is available for a fee and some of which is available without charge. The Company sells advertising to dealers and vendors on these Websites and on the Websites it maintains for PSA/DNA in autographs and CCE and Collectors Corner in coins. The Company owns Expos Unlimited LLC (Expos), a trade show management Company that operates coins and collectibles shows, staged in Long Beach, California, approximately three times a year. At the shows, collectibles are exhibited and are bought and sold by collectibles dealers and collectors.
