Long Point Capital Announces New Equity Partnership with EYP

Long Point Capital is pleased to announce a significant equity investment in EYP Architecture & Engineering. With 325 professionals located in six offices across the country, EYP is one of the world's leading AE firms, providing both stand alone and integrated architecture and engineering design, master planning, and energy services to a wide variety of prominent public and private clients.

Headquartered in Albany, NY, EYP delivers expertise-driven design through a strategic, collaborative process, creating exceptional and innovative environments to advance each client's vision. The firm's commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability inspires every design, while at the same time, influences its own workplace culture and overall corporate strategy. Consistently ranked as one of the nation's top firms and recently named 15th overall and 2nd in the education sector on Engineering News Record's list of the Top 100 Green Design Firms, EYP excels in thought leadership, research, and a unique ability to anticipate client needs.

"This relationship fulfills a number of our key strategic goals," said Tom Birdsey, AIA, EYP's President and Chief Executive Officer. "It not only aids the expansion of our presence in critical geographies allowing us to attract additional world-class clients and world-class talent, but it gives us the resources to exercise the next generation of our growing global architecture and engineering practice. Our clients seek comprehensive, holistic solutions that demand vision, expertise-driven design, talent, and proactive partners that enable their mission. Now, as part of Long Point Capital's portfolio, we can offer comprehensive and integrated professional services and expect fast-paced strategic expansion. We are thrilled to have Long Point Capital as a partner."

Long Point Capital's Managing Director Ira Starr said, "Our investment in EYP is a milestone for Long Point Capital; the practice will add high quality expertise-driven design to our portfolio of professional service investments. Together with our other portfolio companies CHA and Cumming Group, we offer a full range of horizontal and vertical services: planning, design, program and cost management and consulting - separately or as an integrated package. Finally, EYP's world-class brand will substantially enhance Long Point Capital's reputation and visibility. EYP will serve as a keystone and lead the development of our growing Design and Construction offering. We are proud that EYP has joined Long Point Capital's expanding portfolio of design and construction related companies."
