Mr. Cagnetta, I would like to comment and recommend one of your senior broker's Tom Milana, in regards to the sale of my private company "Ada's Natural Whole Foods Market" to a public company "Healthy Choice Markets". From our first meeting about 13 months ago, Tom displayed the utmost in professionalism and knowledge of the mergers & acquisition and valuation process's. He recognized our personal reasons for prematurely selling the business my family and I worked so hard to create and was able to bring not one but multiple (3) buyers to the table, to which a satisfactory all cash contract was happily agreed to and closed on within 60 days of execution. In the end, Tom was able to keep all of the parties on track with a constant push forward and extremely effective communication skills until the goal was reached. Tom demonstrated sound moral and ethical reasoning, and overall has an impeccable character, to which I have no doubt he is a very valuable member to the Transworld organization. Feel free to call me with any comments or questions. Sincerely, M. Dan Creighton (239) 340-2200

Please be advised that I have consummated sales transactions with the above referenced firm/individual. My experience has been more than positive. As one who in general has an aversion to sales people, I have been most impressed. Calls and emails are returned promptly. After hours communication is never a problem. A willingness to help in facilitating the transaction has been demonstrated time and time again, from the beginning of the relationship until and after closing. Recommendation is given without hesitation. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards, Rick M. Rodgers, Owner (561) 252-9384

Tom, This letter is being sent to you on behalf of our amazing experience we had with you not only selling our business, but the entire process that led up to the sale. We were very impressed with the great knowledge you carry through your expertise. You provided excellent advice to us when needed and cheered for us along the way when meeting with potential buyers. From the time of signing with you to the sale six months later, you made it happen! Of all the businesses we have sold in teh past, this sale was the most successful and pleasant. You're a true and dedicated professional! Thank you again Tom! Sincerely, Jason & Roxan Goulet (941) 586-5575

Tom, We can't thank you enough for all the hard work that you put into brokering the purchase of our business. As you know the process was alien to us, however we never felt out of our depth. Your experience and support was there besides us at all times. There were a number of professionals involved in both our side and for the vendors, from our observations none of them were as thorough, methodical or knowledgeable as you were. We have come to know you not only as a business broker, but also as a friend and local mentor. Thanks for all your help, Kenny and Jo NSW Australia (718) 473-0436

Dear Mr. Cagnetta, This morning I had a closing wherein I sold my business, Action Fence Corp. I am writing to tell you what an amazing job Thomas Milana did representing me. I could not be happier with the service he provided. He was very professional, knowledgeable and worked super hard to sell the business. Thomas spent a lot of time and effort to get us to a successful completion and answered many questions expediently along the way. You will continue to have a successful business with Transworld Business Brokers if you employ agents like Thomas Milana. We will not hesitate to recommend Thomas and your company in the future. Thank you for your time. Lee Seaman "Sam" Action Fence Corp. (954) 295-7187

Tom Milana just sold my restaurant for me in Boynton Beach Florida and I wanted you to know how wonderful he was and how patient he was with all the back and forth with the customer and the landlord. He really did a great job! If I ever want to buy or sell another business again, I will most definitely call Tom. Thank you Mary & Basil (561) 672-4101
