Mr. Steven Cook
Executive Vice President, Director
Strategica Group, Inc.

Dear Steve,

Just a line or two to let you know that at Philips Credit Corporation we all appreciated the way in which you, Jack and Scott worked on the Maxtel loan and helped us achieve the eventual goal.

Personally, I enjoyed working with all of you at Strategica (worthy adversaries, indeed!) and would like to compliment you on your high level of professionalism and unquestioned expertise.

Sincerely yours,

Malcolm Buxton
Executive Vice President
Philips Credit Corporation

“The financial acumen of the principals of Strategica is first-rate. Their ability to structure a sophisticated corporate or real estate transaction from start to finish and their value-creation techniques are among the most innovative I have had the opportunity to work with as a lawyer. Strategica's financial creativity and capacity to overcome financial obstacles are at the highest level within the merchant banking industry. If Strategica takes on a transaction, one can feel comfortable they will get it done.“
