Heritage Completes a Structured Equity Investment in REACH Air Medical Services, LLC

November 2, 2009

Heritage is pleased to announce that it has completed a Structured Equity investment in REACH Medical Holdings, a family business based in Santa​ Rosa, California. REACH is a leading provider of air medical transportation services in the western United States, operating seventeen rotor-wing and three fixed-wing aircraft. The Company treated and transported thousands of patients in 2008, all of which constituted emergency or critical care. Heritage’s investment will support the Company’s continued expansion throughout its region.

The Stephens Group, LLC was an investor in the Single Purpose Fund created by Heritage for this investment.

In a typical Private IPO® transaction, Heritage takes a minority equity position in the company via a substantial investment in common and preferred stock. Our approach provides shareholders with the desired amount of liquidity, resolves transition issues and allows shareholders to maintain control and accelerate the growth of their company.
