"Recently, G.T. O'Brien, Inc. represented my brother and myself in the sale of our company, Pure Encapsulations, Inc., to Atrium Biotechnologies (NASDAQ), a division of AEterna-Zentaris Laboratories.
My brother Ray and I founded Pure in 1991, and built it into a leadership position in the natural products/nutraceuticals field. As our business grew, we fielded a growing number of 'fishing' calls from companies and brokers. As a policy, we referred all inquiries to your office, and this was a wise decision, as you were able to establish the financial capacity, motivation and determination of potential acquirers.
Your wise counsel and mentorship not only were a key factor in the growth of Pure Encapsulations, Inc., but also invaluable resources during the negotiation and closing of its sale."
Peter Hamel, Co-Founder - Pure Encapsulations, Inc.. ***** "I would like to thank you for the excellent job you did for us. We believe that with your assistance and guidance through this process we have secured a long-term relationship for our members and staff that will perpetuate the vision of Compass Credit Union. It has been a pleasure to work with you and I certainly look forward to the possibility of working with you on future projects."
John Gunther, President - Compass Credit Union ***** "Robert Bugbee and I want to express our gratitude to you for the very professional and effective manner in which you handled the entire process of selling CLP. We are convinced we got the best overall deal we could have expected for us and our employees. Thanks.
I have enjoyed working with you….It has been a very comfortable relationship for me. I have a great deal of faith, respect and trust in you and the way you have conducted your business."
Richard M. Ezequelle, President - Clinical Lab Products, Inc. ***** "l remember some advice from a wise old sage who had been running his own business…when I opened my doors. He told me to formulate an exit plan early on so that I would not be bound and gagged by indecision or uncertainty if I was unable to recognize when it was time to fold my cards. I have applied that sentiment against every sell out opportunity that has come my way. The Utilicorp deal met the test -– in no small measure because you molded and shaped it to address my needs. For this effort I needed the very best talent at their very best. Thank you not just for that but for the countless times you have volunteered and initiated advice and provided your best counsel.
You have been a prescient adviser, a visionary thinker in the applications of your professional advice and a valued friend. I hope my future endeavors continue to give me access to your rich talent." August G. Fromuth, President - A.G.F. Direct Gas, Inc. ***** "We are writing to commend you for the incredible job your firm has done with the merger of Vibrac Corp and G.L. Rogers LLC. Your professionalism and dedication to the task were nothing short of amazing."
Quentin Searle, President - Vibrac Corporation ***** "Congratulations on finding a buyer for my business. Needless to say, consummating the sale of my company saved thousands of dollars for me personally and none of my employees had to be terminated. It also enabled our existing customers to obtain from the new buyer 'Add-On' type products.
I appreciate very much what you have done for all of us here at Zax Corporation."
Zack Mandravelis, President - Zax Corporation **** "I have had the opportunity to go over this [valuation] with several professionals and all have been quite pleased with your approach and the reasonableness of your conclusions. We are very pleased with your work." Harold LaValley, President - LaValley Building Supply, Inc.
