“It has been a pleasure working with Caltius Mezzanine. They are a very smart group of people and are refreshingly creative, flexible and honest. The professionals at Caltius recognize that in the real world there are bumps in the road, and they have proven their ability to be flexible. That, coupled with doing what they say they are going to do, is very important to me.”
