Perry Mandarino and his team at B. Riley have been extremely proactive and supportive to the CarePoint group as its hospitals become the epicenter in the war against the COVID-19 pandemic. Perry has reached out to me on his own accord and arranged for the hospitals to get PPE and ventilators which are needed so badly right now. These gestures are even more valuable than the monetary support that kept the Christ Hospital Medical Center and Bayonne Medical Center open to face this challenge. I shudder to think if the hospitals without B. Riley help had shut down before this unforeseen pandemic the communities at Bayonne and Jersey City would have been devastated as the other hospitals just do not have the capacity to deal with this.

Achintya Moulick MD, MBA, M.Ch

"We are grateful for the diligent efforts of B. Riley Securities and the other joint book runners and managers to successfully complete these significant transactions for the Company."

Scott Slater, Cadiz CEO and President
