AXIA NetMedia Corporation

Henley Capital worked closely with Axia in a number of ways over a period of two years. Chris Henley played a major part in developing our strategy for the introduction of our Real Broadband services to other parts of Canada outside of Alberta. At the same time his advice and support were instrumental in helping us to navigate through a difficult period in which the company's solvency was threatened. Happily Axia is profitable, growing and positioned well for future success and Chris had a hand in making that possible. His thorough approach to understanding Axia and then introducing us properly in private capital markets saw us through a tough time. I would recommend Henley Capital to anyone needing financial or strategic advice and would not hesitate to engage Chris in the future.

T4G Limited

Our first introduction to Chris was at a financing presentation several years ago. He passed on the opportunity to raise money for our company. This was our first experience with Chris's quick mind and his superior grasp of the financial and operational nuances that deliver value in any business situation.

Fortunately for T4G, Chris saw the hidden value in our company and for the past 5 years Henley Capital has played a crucial role in advising us on many strategic, financial and operational questions. Chris is gifted with the essential characteristics of a leader in the investment banking business: extraordinary integrity, tenacity, intelligence and an uncommon attention to detail. In every project Chris has undertaken for us, his knowledge, careful preparation and keen powers of observation have provided significant competitive advantage to T4G.

Chris is passionate about the success of our business and has helped us capitalize on some exceptional opportunities and avoid some pitfalls as well. Chris has a deep knowledge of our industry and is well-known and respected in the financial and technology sectors. He freely offers advice and assistance, and on many occasions has been able to make introductions and connections that have added significant value to our business.

T4G is prospering. We feel very fortunate to have been working with Chris and would reserve our highest praise and recommendation for him alone

Crosbie Group Limited

Several years ago Crosbie Group Limited and ASCo plc were poised to take advantage of the significant opportunities in the Oil and Gas sector off the East Coast of Canada. These opportunities required a major capital investment as well as a clear strategic vision. Chris Henley played a key role in structuring a plan to access the required capital including accessing the institutional private placement debt market and negotiating and structuring a term sheet in support of our bid for the Shorebase Support Services Contract for the Hibernia Development Project. He took the time to understand our needs, our company, our vision, and our sector so that the advice he provided truly added value to our strategic plans. I would not hesitate to recommend Henley Capital to anyone seeking financial or strategic advice.

Robert S. Crosbie, Chairman

Aecon Group Inc.

We turned to Chris because we had a challenge that was unique and complicated - one that would require some creative thinking rather than a simple 'cut-and-paste' of what had worked for somebody else. What we got was real value added thinking and roll-up-the-sleeves hard work. Chris fit in well with both the Board and management members of our team, and gave us the unbiased client-focused help and counsel we needed. Through these efforts we ended up with a tremendous result for our company. I would gladly recommend Henley Capital to any company looking for financial advice.

John M. Beck, Chairman and CEO
