Hyphen Solutions Announces Investment from PWP Growth Equity

ADDISON, Texas–([1])–Hyphen Solutions (“Hyphen” or “the Company”), a market leader in supply
chain management services for the North American homebuilding industry,
announced today an investment from PWP Growth Equity, a private equity
fund managed by Perella Weinberg Partners that invests in leading,
growth-oriented, lower middle market companies. Terms of the investment
were not disclosed.

The partnership with PWP Growth Equity will allow Hyphen to accelerate
its investment in its people, systems and processes, and will enable the
Company to add new customers and software products. As part of this
transaction, Felix Vasquez, President and Chief Technology Officer of
Hyphen, has been named Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Hyphen provides cloud-based supply chain management, collaboration, and
scheduling solutions for homebuilders and their suppliers. The Company
uses a software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) delivery model to help
homebuilders and their suppliers manage projects with greater accuracy
and efficiency, while minimizing construction time and labor hours.
Hyphen has two primary software offerings: BuildPro and SupplyPro.
BuildPro serves production homebuilders, including 11 of the top
15 U.S. homebuilders, as a real-time scheduling, collaboration, and
supply chain management tool. SupplyPro works in tandem with BuildPro to
deliver a full workflow automation system for suppliers as well as an
interface to superintendents. The combined systems allow real-time
access to job scheduling, purchase orders, and invoicing for all
participants. Together, BuildPro and SupplyPro increase efficiency,
transparency, and accountability for all the stakeholders in the
homebuilding process. Hyphen provides insights on key data points
throughout the construction process that enable customers to better
manage their businesses at the local, regional, and national levels.

Mr. Vasquez said, “For more than 20 years, Hyphen has been a leading
provider of supply chain management software to our homebuilder,
distributor, manufacturer, and supplier clients. As we look to the
future, we are excited to be partnering with PWP Growth Equity, a team
that has a successful track record and significant experience helping
companies drive growth. Their investment is a testament to our growth
potential, and it will allow us to expand and accelerate our leadership
in the space.”

Chip Baird, Co-head of PWP Growth Equity, said, “We are pleased to be
partnering with Felix and the Hyphen team to help the company further
grow and develop. Hyphen has established market leading services, and we
believe our investment, alongside the leadership of Felix and his team,
will help the firm to capitalize on the significant opportunities that
exist in the industry.”

As part of the investment, Mr. Baird; David Ferguson, Co-Head of PWP
Growth Equity; and Henry Heinerscheid, Director of PWP Growth Equity,
will join Mr. Vazquez and David Deniger, Hyphen’s Founder and Chairman,
on Hyphen’s Board of Directors.

Vaquero Capital served as financial advisor to Hyphen on this investment.
