Date:1/14/2008

Huron Expands Presence in Medical Products, Specialty Coatings,

Transportation and Print Solutions

DETROIT, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Huron Capital Partners announced today that in the fourth quarter of 2007 the firm added five companies to its portfolio, capping a very active year for Huron where the firm completed 14 acquisition and divestiture transactions valued at over $225 million. Terms of the transactions were not disclosed.

During the quarter, Huron partnered with management to recapitalize Michigan Orthopedic Services ("MOS"). Headquartered in Livonia, MI, MOS operates a network of patient care facilities that design, fit and fabricate orthotic and prosthetic ("O&P") devices for patients with medical conditions which require such devices to physically support a particular portion of the body (orthopedic braces) or to replace the functionality of a limb which was amputated or had a congenital birth defect (prosthetic devices).

John C. Higgins, a Partner at Huron, stated, "We had been actively searching for a platform to invest in the orthopedics & prosthetics industry and believe that MOS provides an excellent foundation from which to build. MOS has a demonstrated service differentiation and track record of growth through quality patient care, referral relationship development and branch expansion." Aziz "Ozzy" Naser CPO, CEO of MOS, added, "We are excited about the partnership with Huron. Their value-added operational approach will enable the company to grow rapidly through new branch openings and strategic acquisitions."

Also during the quarter, Huron expanded its presence in the areas of specialty coatings, print solutions, and ground transportation services with a series of significant add-on acquisitions to its platforms.

Through Quest Specialty Chemicals, Huron's platform in the specialty chemicals industry, the firm acquired Hydro-Stop. Based in Charleston, SC, the company is a leading manufacturer of sustainable water-based roofing and waterproofing systems for the building envelope. The acquisition marks the 6th specialty chemical company that Huron has acquired through its Quest platform. Since forming Quest three years ago, Huron has worked with the management team to quadruple revenues to over $100 million.

Huron expanded its portfolio in the print solutions industry with its acquisition of NSO Press which was acquired through Huron's portfolio company, TouchPoint Print Solutions. TouchPoint is focused on building a full-service printing and document management business providing customers with solutions in web-based, sheet-fed and digital printing media. Since forming TouchPoint in July 2007 with its operating partners Tom Simunek and Bob Cronin, Huron has completed two acquisitions, committing $25 million and growing revenue to over $35 million.

Huron acquired two companies in the ground transportation business, significantly adding to its transportation platform, Tectrans. Based in the Southeast, the companies provide community shuttle programs for public agencies and paratransit services to disabled and special needs passengers. Since forming Tectrans in July 2006, revenues have grown six-fold to approximately $60 million.
