Board of Directors
Manhattan Bridge Capital
60 Cutter Mill Rd., Suite 205
Great Neck, New York 11021

Dear Members of the Board of Directors:

Capstone Equities Capital Management, LLC (“Capstone”) and G Asset Management, LLC (including their affiliates) comprise a group (the “Group”) that is the largest shareholder in Manhattan Bridge Capital (the “Company”) other than the CEO, Mr. Assaf Ran. Our Group proposes to acquire the Company for a price of $1.30 per share, which represents a 44% premium to the current share price of $0.90 per share. 1

The Company currently trades at the largest disconnect between book value and share price since the announcement that it was exploring strategic options 18 months ago. 2 Given increasing corporate governance concerns, and both near-term and long-term share price performance, we have no reason to expect this gap will close with the Company in its current form.

The key terms of our offer are: the Group acquires the outstanding shares of the Company for $1.30 per share, a thirty (30) day due diligence period, a hard deposit of 5% of the transaction price after the expiration of the due diligence period; a closing sixty (60) days thereafter, and the reversal of Mr. Ran’s recent change in compensation package and other executive compensation limits.   3 Please note that our offer shall expire thirty (30) days after the date hereof.

While we are prepared to move forward with the transaction, we encourage the Company to hire an investment bank and conduct an open process, within a set time limit of three months, to determine the best outcome for shareholders. We believe both strategic and financial buyers would be interested in the Company at a material premium to the current share price.  Simply liquidating the company would represent an estimated 112% return to shareholders. 4

The Company has underperformed its peers and the broader market over both the near and long-term. The Company is down 26% since the August announcement of the change in Mr. Ran’s compensation, underperforming the broader market by 32% and the financial services industry by 18% over the same time period. 5 Longer-term shareholders have also suffered, with the share price having decreased over 80% during the 12.5 years since the Company’s 1999 IPO, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 9% over the same period.   6

Although we believe it is unlikely he would do so, Mr. Ran should recuse himself from this decision both as a board member and a controlling shareholder given the conflict of interest between his employment as CEO and his fiduciary obligation to minority shareholders. We encourage the board to strongly consider this proposal for the best interest of all shareholders.

Sincerely,

 
Joshua Zamir
