Gentlemen:

Please be good enough to furnish the undersigned with copies of the Notification and Report form together with instructions pertaining to its filing for notification under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 commonly known as the Pre-Merger Notification.

We would appreciate further if you could advise us if we are required to file a Notification wherein we represent a client that has tangible assets of less than $10,000,000 which is engaged in the service business and is contemplating a sale of all of its voting stock to a corporation which has sales in excess of $100,000,000 a year for a purchase price of approximately $14,000,000 plus an earn-out which could raise the price over time to a sum of $18-20,000,000.

Your prompt attention to this request will be appreciated.

Respectfully submitted,
