Mr. Tittle has provided services to investors and lenders outside of a court proceeding for a number of years. A substantial portion of this work has been due diligence and financial analyses in nature. Due diligence is an area to which John has devoted significant attention throughout his 30-plus year career. Valuation has also been another area of focus. In spite of the fact that investors and lenders are well equipped to conduct these analyses and complete these tasks on their own, sometimes an independent view is necessary. TAG can provide that independent view in a cost effective manner without a lot of “red tape.”
