Conihasset Capital Partners Wholly Owned Subsidiary, Diversified Fluid Systems Announces Strong Order Growth

June 2, 2009

Book to Bill Ratio reaches 1.88 in May 2009

BOSTON, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Conihasset Capital Partners, Inc. (“Conihasset” or the “Company”)(Pink Sheets: CNHA) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Diversified Fluid Solutions (“DFS”) has experienced a substantial growth in its order book for the 30 days ending May 31, 2009.

As of May 31st DFS book to bill ratio was 1.88.

This 1.88 figure is in steep contrast to the overall industry book to bill for the period ending April 30th of .65 as reported by SEMI, a leading trade organization.

The book to bill ratio is a common measure of a company’s order backlog. This ratio tells whether the company has more orders than it can deliver (if greater than 1), has the same amount of orders that it can deliver (equals 1), or has less orders than it can deliver (under 1). This monthly figure is used frequently for companies in the technology and chip (semiconductor) sector (Source: Investopedia).

“While we are obviously pleased to see the industry begin to recover from the sharp contraction experienced in the 4th quarter of 2008 we are extremely gratified to see that the products, service and expertise of DFS founders and highly skilled personnel have been so well received by some of the biggest customers in the industry during this challenging time,” stated Richard D. Bailey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Conihasset.

“DFS core focus is on purity and process control. We believe that need for high purity fluid delivery systems used in cleanroom manufacturing coupled with the rise of nanotechnology and other applications where a single particle of dust can dwarf and contaminate the work product it comes in contact with will continuously feed the need for ever more sophisticated purity and control systems. This is why Conihasset made the investment in DFS,” Bailey added.
