Lincoln International: Founders and institutional shareholders have sold Company Bike Solutions GmbH to DPE Deutsche Private Equity GmbH
Munich-based, Company Bike is a leading provider of electric bike mobility solutions, offering fully integrated bike leasing services to large corporations. Due to Company Bike’s stellar historical track record, the founders were looking for a partner to support the company’s next phase of strategic growth.
The management team will remain in their roles and further develop Company Bike in partnership with the founders and DPE. Under the new ownership, the company is looking to continue its highly successful and proven growth strategy. DPE acquired a majority stake in Company Bike with the founders and remaining shareholders retaining a material minority stake.
Lincoln International acted as exclusive mergers and acquisitions advisor to Company Bike’s founders and institutional shareholders, providing industry expertise and managing the preparatory, marketing, negotiation and due diligence phases. The parties have agreed not to disclose any financial details.
The transaction adds to Lincoln International’s impressive track record with high-growth, founder-led companies and business-to-business-to-consumer and mobility business models.
