NV5 Receives 2014 EBJ Business Achievement Award

Environmental Business Journal Recognizes Firms for Growth and Innovation

HOLLYWOOD, FL and SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - NV5 Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVEE), a provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions, has been honored by Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ), a business research publication which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry, as one of 50 companies recognized for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions and industry leadership in 2014.

NV5 is pleased to announce that it was chosen to receive the EBJ award for business achievement in mergers and acquisitions.

"In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development," said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.

NV5 was recognized for continuing an aggressive campaign to grow the Company primarily through acquisitions, adding four companies in 2014. "Along with our focus on organic growth and performance optimization, acquisitions are a key part of our strategy as a public company. In 2014 we made four acquisitions and continue to be committed to strategic growth. We are honored that the Environmental Business Journal has recognized NV5's achievements for the second consecutive year," said NV5 CEO Dickerson Wright.

The 2014 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XIII in San Diego on March 11-13, 2015. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat hosted by EBI Inc.
