services platform backed by Centre Partners and LP First

Centre and LPFC formed the initial platform in September 2020. Terms of
the transaction were not disclosed.

Since September
2020, United has completed 16 add-on acquisitions, grown to over 1,200
employees, and established over 20 branches across several of the fastest growing
metropolitan areas in the Southeast. In addition, United has built a robust acquisition
pipeline and currently has several acquisitions under letter of intent which
would further enhance its presence in the region.

customer relationships, a disciplined operating approach, and best-in-class
customer service reputation, the United platform is very well-positioned for
organic and acquisition growth going forward.”
