Dear Rick,

Thank you for your outstanding workshop on how to increase the value of your business, which you so kindly made to several of my clients and as well as fellow business owners who participate with me in the OK Group. Your presentation was very well done and extremely informative. I received good feedback from my clients and colleagues concerning both your content and format.

I greatly appreciate your taking time from your day to provide this valuable business information to my clients. It was a wonderful public relations program for me, while the same time giving my clients important information that will enable them to evaluate and enhance the value of their businesses. I understand I was the first to request such a presentation; undoubtedly, given its value, I will not be the last.
Again, thanks for your excellent presentation. I will look forward to working with you on future business transactions.

Sincerely, JEFFREY C. BODIE, P.C.

Dear Rick:

Our mergers and acquisitions group thanks you for the program by you and your colleagues with respect to the determining "street value" of closely-held businesses. Your seminar materials were very well prepared and understandable. We were impressed with the care you took to make sure the presentation was done just right. And a number of lawyers have commented to me that the subject you discussed will be helpful to them in their law practices.

I know these presentations take a lot of time and require significant attention, and we greatly appreciate the effort you made for our benefit.

Best regards to you, Mark, Dennis and Ken.
Very truly yours,
Edward L. Epstein

Dear Rick:

Thank you for your seminar presentation on June 30, 2004. I enjoyed your presentation and found it worthwhile and informative. Although we are not in the valuation business, it is always helpful when our business lawyers can discuss valuation concepts with the closely-held companies we represent. I found your seminar insightful and beneficial in this respect and would recommend it to others who want to learn more on this topic. I also found the materials to be helpful and plan to use them as a reference source.

Thank you again,

Dear Rick:

In our firm's business department we work with many closely held companies. Over the years we have found it is useful to have a fundamental understanding as to how to approach valuing private companies from a practical perspective. The Piper Group, LLC offers an excellent seminar on this topic. As you are aware, our firm benefited from your presentation some years ago, and we recently felt it was time to host it again so that our newer members could benefit from this knowledge.

The latest seminar and your booklet were significantly improved from the earlier version. The booklet now includes a more complete text including PowerPoint slides and many more practical examples for the seminar attendees to compute sample valuations for a business. Of particular interest, one sample exercise was for a financial buyer, while another was for a strategic buyer. Overall, the booklet is a valuable reference book for future use.

One of the main benefits of the seminar was that it approaches valuation from actual sales not theory. As such, the presentation was very worthwhile and informative. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about the process of valuing closely held companies.

Very truly yours,

John E. McCormick,
Chair, Business Department
