WASHINGTON, D.C. – January 17, 2024 – Godspeed Capital Management LP (“Godspeed Capital”), a lower middle-market Defense & Government services, solutions, and technology focused private equity firm, announced today the successful sale of MOREgroup (the “Company”) to Wind Point Partners (“Wind Point”). Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

MOREgroup is a family of leading architecture, design, and engineering brands with sector focused expertise in the Education, Healthcare, and Federal Government markets. The platform strategy was initiated by Godspeed Capital in March 2022 through a partnership with Huckabee Architects that included the complementary add-on acquisitions of Rachlin Partners, TSK Architects, Image Engineering Group, and E4H. Today, MOREgroup comprises a network of over 700 employees in 17 offices across the US.

Christopher M. Huckabee, Chief Executive Officer of MOREgroup, said, “We are grateful to Godspeed Capital for a successful partnership that inspired us to grow, innovate, and be more. Working closely with Godspeed, we enhanced our core areas of expertise, invested in our accredited team, and pursued acquisitions that broadened our capabilities and expanded MOREgroup’s market reach. We look forward to building on Godspeed Capital’s contributions towards our business in our next phase of growth.”

Douglas T. Lake, Jr., Founder & Managing Partner of Godspeed Capital, added, “It has been an honor to partner with Chris and the incredible team at MOREgroup as we have helped them execute multiple strategic acquisitions and organic growth initiatives that have expanded the Company’s capabilities and presence across the U.S. significantly. We are proud of our role in helping lead MOREgroup’s evolution into a leading national architecture, design and engineering firm and look forward to watching the Company’s continued growth and success.”

This transaction marks Godspeed Capital’s first platform sale since its founding in 2021. Godspeed Capital partners with founder- and management-owned businesses operating broadly across the defense and government services sectors that have reached an inflection point in their growth trajectory. Over the last three years, Godspeed Capital has made 23 acquisitions to form five distinct platform investments and has raised over $400M across two separate investment programs. Godspeed Capital invested in MOREgroup through Godspeed Capital Investment Program I in 2022.

AEC Advisors, LLC served as the lead financial advisor to MOREgroup and Godspeed Capital, and Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal counsel in connection with the sale.
