Dear Mr. Piper,

Thank you for all your hard work in facilitating NewWorld Capital's acquisition of Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls, LLC. Your dedication to the transaction was evident to all. At critical moments, your timely interventions with both parties ensured the success of the process.

You have brought us a wonderful company. Here's to finding the next one!

Thank you again,

Bill Hallisey, The NewWorld Capital Group Team

Dear Rick and Brent:

As you may well remember when I purchased Hearing Aid Consultants, a 20-store chain, I had been looking to buy a company for almost three years. During this time I looked at a lot of potential acquisition targets. I dealt with many M & A firms and yours was at the top of the list.

You presented this business in as good a light as it could realistically be presented without it being false and misleading —while remaining honest and realistic. I believe you represented your customer's interest in an extraordinarily professional manor resulting in a very good selling price for them and a fair purchase price for us.

The offering book was well done. The material was presented professionally providing an easy to follow, logical, comprehensive collection of data to quickly and accurately assess the value and merits of the business. This enabled me to make a quick decision about going forward with an offer. You would be surprised to see what many firms attempt to pass off as offering information. It would be inaccurate, incomplete and in many cases fraudulent.

Any information I requested from you came through professionally, well-presented and supported with real data—tax returns, financials, etc. The "Roadmap to Closing" process, in which you shepherded the deal week-by-week, kept everything on track. When issues came up during the due diligence you were both there to work out a solution. This process gave us a forum to work things out along with a weekly update. This kept the deal moving forward to a successful closing.

Thanks for a job well done. I would greatly recommend you to any Seller or Buyer.

Dear Rick and Bill:

I wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for everything you did to help me initiate and complete the acquisition of Badge Print Company. These words seem inadequate to the task.
You and all of your associates were gracious from the very beginning. Your willingness to help and guide me through this process was above and beyond the call of duty. You truly did more than you needed to do and you certainly did more than anyone else was willing to do. You were most generous with your time and expertise. But it is your process, the "secret sauce" and your Roadmap to Success that sets you ahead of anyone else who may offer what seems to be a comparable service. My advice to anyone who wants to find a business is to engage the Piper Group for a buy side search. I only wish I had done it sooner.

Please feel free to have any prospective clients contact me. I look forward to repaying you for all that you have done for me.
While my acquisition is complete and our business association draws to a close I can only hope that this is the start of a beautiful friendship.

Warmest Regards,

Paul J. Morin

Dear Rick:

I want to thank you again for the key role you played in the purchase of Educational Production's assets by Teaching Strategies, Inc. In every negotiation there are crucial moments that can make or break the deal. In this case, you quickly stepped in and put forth some creative ideas that helped put humpty-dumpty back together again. And that was before you were even formally involved with the process! Your approach put us back on track and, in fact, became the basis for the final deal structure.
I also really appreciated your process, which you call the "Roadmap to Closing." This organized approach kept us all moving forward and dealing with the issues in a timely manner. Our weekly update calls provided an ongoing forum for additional clarification and negotiations. Most important, it helped create a team environment that retained the goodwill between the principals and advisors as we worked our way through the maze of documents and issues.

Thanks again for the help. We ended up with a deal that acknowledged all the parties needs and fears and crafted solutions to minimize risk and maximize performance incentives. We couldn't have done it without you. I look forward to working with you again.

Dear Rick,

I wanted to take a few minutes and express my gratitude for the outstanding job you and your team did during my recent purchase of a secondary wood products manufacturing company. Your company provided a very professional process and a calm and friendly environment that resulted in a very smooth ownership transition. I feel I was treated very fairly, especially when others were bidding on the same business. The fact that your company provided a very detailed offering booklet eliminated many questions and concerns right from the start. The offering booklet was one of the key elements that differentiated your business offering and the Piper Group from the many others businesses I was considering. I appreciate that your team provided referrals to assist with me with the evaluation, legal and financial services. 1 strongly recommend your company to anyone buying or selling a business. You and your team made a substantial contribution to the entire process which really helped close the deal.


Many thanks. Sincerely,

Mike Beenken,  Quality Woodworking
