In my role as Chairman of ServRx and related entities, I have had the opportunity to work directly with The Miller Group’s CEO, Rudy Miller, since 2014. The Board retained his firm as strategic business advisor in part because Rudy has a proven track record in working with high-growth middle market entrepreneurial companies. He truly appreciates the opportunities and challenges facing expanding businesses. His business experience as an entrepreneur, public company CEO, and board member of a number of public companies has been a huge benefit in helping our company and its aggressive operating management team work through numerous business complexities. He played a critical role assisting us with our bank credit facility as well as locating a full time CFO for the company. He is a direct-results oriented advisor that comprehends the difficult decisions that need to be made by the board. His legal, accounting-finance and operational experience is a tremendous asset to our company and our management team as we continue to grow ServRx. Rudy and his team have earned our board’s respect and we have re-engaged his firm for the next two years to continue to assist the company in meeting its growth plan.

There's no shortage of qualified investment banking and business - financial consulting firms in today's crowded market. I have worked with firms in the past that have performed well for us and personally know of firms that meet the needs of Telgian. What separates MILLER is the dedication to understanding our business and advocating for the needs of our stakeholders. Rudy Miller's personal attention to me and my senior management team, and his active participation in our board meetings over the last 8 years has been great for Telgian because of his business expertise. His direct assistance with our banking relationships has been terrific. In addition to MILLER's outstanding services, Miller Investments, Inc., a MILLER entity, has become an important preferred shareholder of Telgian. MILLER prioritizes the long-term needs of a business: whether it's right to complete a deal now or in the future. Because of the advocacy model of MILLER, Rudy and I have become good friends over the years. A needed and trusted friend who understands my business, who will call me out when I believe my own press clippings and support me when times get tough. Telgian is fortunate to have Rudy deeply involved in our business as a trusted advisor.

BOWLIN TRAVEL CENTERS, INC.
We are a 100+ year-old family-owned business that values integrity. Rudy Miller, CEO of The Miller Group ("MILLER") guided us through our initial public offering, introduced us to Wall Street and the subsequent divestiture of a major operating division, obtaining a value well beyond anything we initially envisioned. MILLER's advice and assistance were invaluable to us in completing these transactions. Rudy and his team are professional with great loyalty serving their clients. We have retained MILLER since 1996 and they have been an important investor/shareholder for the past 22 years. We continue to utilize MILLER's broad range of financial and business consulting services.

Chairman & CEO
CAPITAL TITLE GROUP, INC.
From 1996 through the 2006 acquisition of Capital Title by NYSE listed LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., Rudy Miller was our trusted advisor and a major shareholder through the MILLER firm. MILLER's effective capital formation strategy and M&A support services helped our company grow from a range of $2.5 million to $380.2 million in annual revenue. Their ability to efficiently secure capital and support our acquisition program on our behalf allowed us to focus on operations that significantly increased the value of our company. We relied on their expertise as we completed the LandAmerica transaction where they secured a premium that benefited all shareholders.
MILLER has been retained by my investment firm, Head Management, LLC since 2007 regarding consulting and financial assignments. We have also been a co-investor with MILLER in numerous venture capital and private equity investments.
- Donald R. Head
Chairman & CEO
I've worked with numerous consultants and advisors on multiple transactions, including some with the biggest names in the media industry, and my experience with MILLER was a great learning experience for myself and our team, and was unmatched on a number of very important fronts: innovative fee structure, service excellence and intuition. We always felt our deal was MILLER's biggest priority, even though they were working on transactions much bigger and more complex than ours. The guidance we received on when to fold 'em and when to hold 'em was spot on – every prediction MILLER made about the seller's next move was correct, and that saved us 15-20 percent on the purchase price.

I have been on both sides of a transaction with Rudy Miller; I have observed him as a public company CEO, board member and as a consultant. Let me tell you one thing...you want the MILLER team on your side of the deal. MILLER has served as a business and financial consultant to a number of public companies where I have served as President and CEO. Rudy's Wall Street experience coupled with his business expertise is a big plus for MILLER's clients. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Rudy and MILLER's ability to achieve results.
