Cascadia Capital, an investment bank serving middle market clients globally, today announced that it acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Special Aerospace Services (“SAS”), an industry leader in spaceflight engineering and hardware based in Colorado, in its partnership with Godspeed Capital (“Godspeed”), a lower middle market Defense & Government services, solutions, and technology based private equity firm. Together they have formed a high-end space engineering, defense, and communications technology solutions platform designed to serve the critical needs of U.S. Defense & Intelligence Agencies, as well as commercial space customers.

“We are excited to partner with the incredible team at SAS to establish a platform capable of addressing the next generation of public and private sector space priorities,” said Doug Lake, Founder & Managing Partner at Godspeed. “Godspeed has significant expertise building and scaling technology solutions-focused platforms serving commercial as well as Intelligence and Defense customers. With CEO Heather Bulk at the helm of SAS alongside a deeply experienced leadership team including Warren Kohm as our new CFO, we are confident in the platform’s ability to become the premier provider of high-end space, missile defense, and communications technology solutions for the commercial space and defense markets.”

“I am thrilled to be leading SAS into this next phase of strategic growth and partnering with Godspeed’s experienced team to establish this important platform,” said Heather Bulk, Co-Founder and CEO of SAS. “At SAS, our team thrives on meeting the needs of our clients across the space and defense industries. As demand for critical launch services, missile defense support systems, and advanced software continues to grow, this new platform will be well positioned to provide the solutions and technical excellence the industry will require. We look forward to continuing to expand our offerings to support increasing investment within the space economy and meet the rapidly growing requirements for advanced space and defense solutions.”

“We were very proud to have advised Special Aerospace Services (“SAS”) on this historic transaction with Godspeed,” added Cascadia Managing Director, Kevin Frisch. “Since its founding in 2007, SAS has been a leading voice and resource in advising and helping clients execute their strategic and tactical goals in the pursuit of advancing space and defense technologies for some of the largest and most impactful companies in the sector.  We see the partnership with Godspeed as further strengthening their mission and capabilities, and look forward to seeing their continued success working together.” “I was constantly impressed by the professionalism and dedication demonstrated by Cascadia Capital in closing this transaction,” noted Ms. Bulk. “Their strategic guidance and meticulous attention to detail were instrumental in navigating the complexities of the deal and ensuring its success.”
