Integris Represents FOOD InDUSTRY TRANSACTION

Integris Partners recently advised Culinarte' Marketing Group, LLC (dba "Bonewerks") on its recapitalization by Kainos Capital. Founded in Green Bay, WI in 1998 by Ed Driscoll and Tom Sausen, Bonewerks provides the highest quality chef-inspired sauce products for center of the plate entrées, including ranges of premium glace and demi glace, as well as fully-prepared, oven-seared sous vide entrées. These products are used by discerning chefs in a variety of settings including white table cloth restaurants, catered events, sporting venues and hospitality dining.

"Bonewerks is uncompromising about product quality; from chef driven recipes to use of the highest-quality ingredients and fastidious food safety procedures. Integris understood our value proposition and brought immense interest from like-minded investors. We are thrilled to partner with Kainos to capitalize on what we have built and to pursue numerous growth initiatives", said Tom Sausen, Bonewerks CEO.

Ed Driscoll, Bonewerks Founder, added "Integris ran an incredibly efficient and effective process that delivered an exceptional outcome for the business and for its investors. Their hands-on professionalism from start to finish drove results that exceeded my highest expectations. This transaction has truly been the highlight of my career!"

Kainos Capital, based in Dallas, TX, is an experienced middle market private equity firm with an exclusive focus on the food and consumer sector. The Kainos team has invested in almost 60 transactions with over $8 billion of transaction value.

"I was extremely impressed with how well Integris managed this process and all of its constituents. It's a lost art in today's transactional world," commented Andrew Rosen, Managing Partner of Kainos Capital.

Bryan Cave provided legal counsel to the Company and Maranon Capital led the financing to support the transaction.
