Reston, VA, October 8, 2021 – Bowman Consulting Group Ltd (Bowman) (NASDAQ: BWMN), today announced the acquisition of PCD Engineering, Inc.

“PCD is an innovative and growing firm with an impressive team of professionals,” said Gary Bowman, CEO of Bowman. “Peter has built a terrific multi-faceted organization concentrated on sustainability and building-oriented energy efficiency. Earlier this year we acquired KTA Group, a Washington DC area-based M/E/P firm and PCD is an ideal next step in our strategy of developing a national building services practice. Everything about this acquisition aligns with our initiatives for growth and expansion, especially with respect to opportunities for immediate revenue synergies.”
“Joining the Bowman family is the right opportunity at the right time,” said Peter D’Antonio, founder of PCD. “Given our common cultures and commitment to growth, I am confident that our team will be a successful addition to Bowman. The firm’s commitment to emerging energy technologies and sustainability was extremely appealing to us as we considered the best fit for PCD. I’m confident we made the right choice and look forward to helping grow their building services and sustainability practices.”
The acquisition, which Bowman expects to initially contribute approximately $2.5 million of annual net service billing and be immediately accretive, was financed with a combination of cash, seller financing, and stock.

We are pleased to have closed on our third transaction as a public company and fourth of this year.
