To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to express a letter of reference for a business acquisition transaction that was recently closed through The Piper Group.

A company we owned retained The Piper Group in late 2003 to bring qualified prospective buyers to the table for the acquisition of the company. The Piper Group was diligent in compiling an attractive, accurate, and complete offering book and a multifaceted sales and marketing strategy that quickly generated multiple prospective qualified buyers. The offering book was impressive and most importantly supplied buyers the complete information that helped them to quickly assess their interest in an acquisition of the business.

The Piper Group generated offers from qualified buyers and through their unique deal point process we where able to negotiate with multiple buyers simultaneously until the upper limits were found with each buyer. We then decided which buyer to accept. The result was the strongest buyer at the highest price.

Rick Piper stayed fully involved with a hands on personal approach through the entire process. I was most impressed with the assistance he gave to both buyer and seller through due diligence and with issues that arose through closing. Rick found win-win solutions that could only be found with his experience and special efforts.

Rick Piper and his staff are true professionals in their field. I felt confident through the entire process in achieving both the type of buyer and the price I had expected. I highly recommend their services particularly to a first time buyer or seller of a business. They remove the anxiety and stay with you through the entire process with a personnel touch that is hard to find in large acquisitions.

HATS OFF TO THE PIPER GROUP "GREAT JOB"

To Whom It May Concern:

I first met Rick Piper after I was originally contacted in a professional manner by direct mail and a follow up telephone call regarding a business for sale in our field. He was interested in how merging the two businesses might improve my position. I found that to be a refreshing approach.

I found the offering book unique in that it contained more information than what I had seen before when I bought other companies. This allowed me to make a faster decision as to whether to proceed or not.

As it turned out there were several offers on the company. I do not like to become involved in bidding contests and was dealt with in a fair manner considering the multiple offers that were presented. While my offer with some negotiation was accepted it was not shopped or did I become involved in a bidding contest.

Once we became involved in the legal agreements Rick was able to mediate many of the issues that arose. Since we were dealing with two sellers this became involved. He remained involved in every phase through closing including helping me with employment agreements.

I suppose the best reference is to say that our company is contemplating additional acquisitions and as a result of my experience with Rick Piper, I will be contacting him to assist me with further acquisitions.

To Whom It May Concern:

I was the successful buyer for Wonder Metals Corporation, a California manufacturing company that has been in business for nearly 50 years.. The M & A transaction was very complicated due to dealings with a conservator for the estate along with real estate and numerous other issues.

I would like to commend Mark Vanden Heuvel and the Piper Group for their assistance in making this intricate transaction a successful one. My purchase required expert negotiation skills along with a great deal of patience, all of which were conducted with the utmost of integrity_

It was a pleasure to experience the expertise and working relationship with Mark and his team. Without hesitation I would recommend their services and consider them to be both professional and personable.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Sincerely,

Dear Rick,

I can't believe over six months has passed since my purchase of Inland Vending. Now that I have a moment to reflect back on the acquisition, I would like to express my appreciation for the outstanding job you did throughout the process. Even though you represented the seller, your honest and professional approach to every detail of the transaction clearly demonstrated your commitment to produce a fair and workable agreement for all concerned.

From the outstanding and thorough preparation of the confidential acquisition profile to comfortably handling both legal and accounting questions, your knowledge of the acquisition field and attention to detail was clearly apparent. Additionally, your diligent win-win approach to deal making was evident several times throughout the process as you dealt head on with and resolved some very difficult issues that could have become deal killers. No problem or issue arose which you were not able to creatively resolve to the satisfaction of both parties.

Again, Rick, it was a pleasure getting to know you and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

Best Regards,
David Whelan, President

Dear Rick,

Thanks for making the experience of purchasing a business as painless as possible. Your style of setting expectations of how the process works for all parties kept the ball moving forward.

I like your self- description of being a marriage broker. All parties need to be happy for the success of the transaction. In this case both the buyer and the seller had never done this before. Your guidance and referrals to accountants, legal and financing helped make the purchase happen.

Most important was your always positive and optimistic attitude. Especially when the individuals had days when we thought it was all going to fall apart. Your proactive participation helped everyone to find solutions to the bumps in the road.

I have closed my first quarter and feel that this was the right business to buy. I have also survived the beginning of a school term. Nothing like a full lobby to make you appreciate the value of good customer service.

Best Regards,

Nora Stevens
