While we had a number of private equity firms knocking on our door, when Prairie Capital called, we found the decision straightforward.  For one thing, we had the good fortune to work with Prairie in the past with great results.  Additionally, we chose Prairie for a combination of excellent business skills and their respect for the people with whom they work.  From any angle in the organization, we find Prairie team members to behave with skill and integrity. They believe in a philosophy of win-win and their track record shows it.
