Terra Verde Partners
We retained MPI to originate add-on acquisition opportunities
in a highly fragmented industry. They were able to leverage their strategic hands-on research capabilities and produce
over 600 targets, many of which would not likely have been found using typical research methods.
Over the course of a year, they identified 50 deal submittals that met our investment
criteria and resulted in meaningful principal-level conversations. MPI was an outstanding deal origination source for
our team throughout the relationship.

retained MPI for a specific industry search. Not only did they bring us great candidates, they went the extra mile and uncovered
new opportunities outside of that industry for us to consider. Through the whole process, MPI was a true partner and very
enjoyable to work with.

FCP Investors V, L.P.
a private equity group with over $200 million of capital under management, we have excellent deal flow; however we had
a specific interest in acquiring a platform company in a niche area of industrial distribution. To implement this strategy,
we retained MPI who successfully introduced us to several platform companies, along with several other add-on candidates.
Key to MPI's value was their ability to communicate our story. They were a team member
who we could trust.

We retained MPI to identify, screen
and contact potential add-on acquisition to our specialty textile portfolio company. Joe and his team quickly unearthed
several potential proprietary deals which led to substantive discussions with business owners. We hope to consummate
at least one of these in the near future.
Our team was very impressed with the speed and pin-point accuracy of the search.
We plan to use MPI on additional searches for add-ons for our other portfolio companies.
Peachtree Equity Partners
We engaged MPI to assist us in pursuing
non-control investment opportunities in private companies throughout the southeast. They were very thorough in their explanation
of our interests to business owners and became an excellent mouthpiece that enabled us to visit with many interesting companies
including one that resulted in a successful investment in a manufacturer of compact utility and oilfield service equipment.

Occidental Chemical Corporation
though we know our industry very well, our capability to make strategic acquisitions and alliances has been greatly augmented
through the efforts of MPI. They were able to provide entrees to companies that we have known for years as well as identify
candidates we were not aware of.
Their professional and thorough approach
has proven itself to be effective.
