To whom it may concern,

We have recently had the opportunity of dealing with Mr. Brian Hornby , business broker. We initially had retained his services to do an exhaustive search of printing firms in Western Canada that could possibly be acquired. In a second phase, we asked Mr. Hornby to get in touch with a limited number of potential candidates among those he had identified and to attempt to obtain a mandate to sell from
their current owners.

We are happy to report that, in great part due to Mr. Hornby’s work and efforts, we have successfully completed one such acquisition. Throughout our dealings with him, we have found that Mr. Hornby adhered to the highest standards of professional behavior. Consequently, we have no reservation whatsoever in recommending Mr. Hornby very highly .
