TRANSACTIONS GODSPEED CAPITAL-BACKED HUCKABEE ARCHITECTS INVESTS IN TSK ARCHITECTS Godspeed Capital Management LP announced it has invested in TSK Architects, a highly acclaimed architecture, planning, and interior design firm with corporate headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada and additional offices in Los Angeles, California, Phoenix, Arizona, and Reno- Tahoe, Nevada. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Founded in 1960, TSK is a leading Southwestern US-focused architecture firm, providing architectural and interior design, master planning, construction administration, and consulting services for K-12 and higher education clients as well as federal, state, and local government clients. TSK has earned over 90 design awards for design excellence, sustainable practice, exceptional service, and high-performing architecture, and was awarded the 2020 AIA Nevada Architecture Firm of the Year. TSK joins Rachlin Partners as part of Huckabee Architects, Inc., Godspeed Capital’s recently launched AEC services and solutions growth platform focused on education and government markets. TSK’s integration will grow the reach of

the Huckabee platform into Nevada, Arizona, and California’s AEC markets, and will enhance the diversity of its traditional K-12 customer base while also allowing for immediate expansion into federal, state, and local government markets. TSK’s current leadership and management team will remain in place and co-invest equity in the transaction. Windom Kimsey, president and CEO of TSK Architects, said, “We are excited to partner with Godspeed Capital and join the Huckabee platform, whose proven capabilities and deep expertise will enable TSK to scale our own offerings into new customers and markets. We are eager to build upon and integrate our core services within Huckabee’s diverse strategy and provide end-market diversification to best serve our growing client base.” Chris Huckabee, CEO of Huckabee, said, “We are thrilled to welcome TSK to the Huckabee platform as we further accelerate the execution of our strategic growth objectives. TSK’s federal government practice not only diversifies our customer and end-market portfolio, but importantly provides Huckabee with immediate access, past performance, and qualifications to grow into the

massive federal government market. We intend to fully utilize Huckabee’s in- house technology and data solutions capabilities to support TSK’s award winning design and consulting work to drive growth and opportunities for our employees. We look forward to developing a strong and collaborative partnership with TSK as we capitalize on the attractive pipeline of Federal, State, and Local government projects and market leading presence in the southwestern architecture market they bring to the platform.” Ahmed Abdel-Saheb, principal at Godspeed, said, “TSK Architects’ decades-long, award-winning track record within the education and government architecture sectors will bolster Huckabee’s comprehensive AEC services platform through the addition of a significant Federal, State, and Local Government practice, and further enhances our geographic footprint by expanding it within the fast-growing southwestern region of the United States. We are excited for the additional opportunities that TSK will create for the Huckabee platform and look forward to continuing to provide our support to our growing customer portfolio.”

5. Any out-of-scope requests for additional services made by a client that require an extra services agreement must be dealt with within 24 hours of the request. Waiting does nothing but hurt your ability to get paid for extra work you did not anticipate doing. Get the extra services agreements out immediately and get the client’s acknowledgement that they will owe you for this. 6. Prepare and send a weekly project progress report to all team members, both inside and outside of the company. These reports should commence from the first week you get authorization to work on the project and continue until the project is finished. Include all team members inside and outside the company including any subconsultants, the client, and the client’s supervisor if there is one on the distribution list. Format the report to include three topic areas – what you did this week, what you will be working
