To Whom It May Concern:

 

Re: World Discoveries, Inc.

 

  It is not often I take the time to write a letter like this, but I am making an exception because of the wisdom and character of Stephen L. Pope, Sr.

I was first introduced to Stephen L. Pope, Sr. in 2001 by a representative of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Commercial Service in Washington, D.C.  I met with Steve on several occasions in New York, and learned of his extensive background in the financial community and internationally in the financial world, and in Marketing/Sales and International Business Development.  I was very impressed by Steve, being a Structured Finance Specialist myself, at major international banks, for over 25 years. 

I met with Steve in Mantachie, Mississippi, and Red Bay, Alabama and saw Steve Pope's operations.

            World Discoveries, Inc., through Mr. Pope’s extensive sales activity, and his financial background, initiated various meetings with potential joint venture partners from India, and eventually, through various agencies of the U.S. Government, went to Washington, DC and met with OPIC, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, an agency of the U.S. Government.  After more than a year of extensive business plans, loan applications, and meetings, he obtained a $1.2 million loan for Domes International, Inc. to start a Domes factory (Domes International (India) LTD, in Ahmedabad, India in 2003 for the manufacture of composite fiberglass housing and structures.

            I have learned that Mr. Pope went to India for many months to initialize and start the factory with an Indian partner, and successfully had the Grand Opening in December of 2003.  Subsequently, Domes International, Inc. hired World Discoveries, Inc. and put Mr. Pope on retainer as their Vice President of Marketing & Sales, and Director of International Business Development.  He traveled extensively all over India, visiting with Government, Military, and Industrial officials promoting his Composite Dome Structures.  He subsequently made many trips to Nepal, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Egypt, Lebanon, and around the United States meeting with various Government, Military and Industrial officials on behalf of World Discoveries, Inc. and Domes International, Inc. 

            Mr. Pope and World Discoveries, Inc. over the years has professionally prepared numerous

business plans, proposals, presentations, and various marketing and communications documents, etc.  He has an excellent command of the English language, and is very adept at preparing very powerful, persuasive, and informative presentations and marketing materials.

He has handled himself very professionally, and once again, helped to bring many potential qualified buyers to the table for his company.  Also, he is negotiating with several potential Joint Venture Partners for our expansion plans in India and worldwide.

            Steve has a wealth of contacts, and is extremely knowledgeable about business, finance, and

negotiation.  He has very good insight into people’s characters, intentions, etc.  He offers abundant amounts of advice, and his business tactics are extremely results oriented.  Two and ½ years ago, I again visited with Steve in New York who sought my advice in the financing and/or Joint Venture sale of his Indian unit.  With my extensive knowledge of the composite fiberglass industry, having worked for several boat building companies, and over 30 years of experience on Wall Street and internationally, it seemed like a perfect fit for his needs.  He required a full due diligence report on his part in order to properly assess the situation. He hired me and took me to India with him for 10 days to travel all over northern India, talking to agents, customers, military, government, industrial officials, as well as visiting his factory.  He gave a very objective, astute analysis of the situation in India.  In order to proceed, his company again hired me to come to Mississippi and visit his factories there, and meet with the officials of his company, and some of his management team. 

            Consequently, his company hired me again to visit Washington, D.C. with him to visit OPIC, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, who had financed his factory in India.   Steve and I were very familiar with the agency of the U.S. Government, and I offered insight to him as an independent consultant on their behalf.  He also introduced me to several extremely qualified potential buyers for his company in India.

Finally, his company hired me again to visit India for 10 days with him for a second time, in order to find a qualified Joint Venture buyer for his Indian company.  We traveled in northern and southern India, met with numerous potential buyers, government, military, and industrial contacts.  He handled himself very professionally, and once again, helped to bring several potential qualified buyers to the table.

Steve has a wealth of contacts, is very knowledgeable about business, finance, and negotiation.  his business methodology is results oriented.  His integrity is beyond reproach.  His track record speaks volumes about his entrepreneurial skills, and his success-oriented professionalism. 

            I recommend Stephen L. Pope, Sr.  and World Discoveries, Inc. for any endeavors you may have. 

            If you wish to discuss Stephen's credentials further, you may reach me at the email address below.

 

 

Sincerely,
