Convent Capital has sold CROWD to Tikehau Capital


CROWD is the leading pan-European provider of premium, circular and technology-enabled cycling infrastructure and street furniture products. In addition, the company offers installation and maintenance services and bespoke product designs. CROWD supports cities in transitioning to low emission mobility and creating greener urban areas to facilitate a healthier lifestyle of citizens.

The Deal

Under Convent Capital’s ownership, CROWD transformed into a pan-European leader in cycling infrastructure and street furniture on the back of a highly successful mergers and acquisitions strategy combined with strong organic growth. Management and shareholders decided to attract a new partner to support the business strategically and operationally in further growing and consolidating its market-leading position. Lincoln was appointed to assist Convent and CROWD and orchestrated a high-pace process, through which Tikehau Capital, the global alternative asset management group, emerged as the preferred partner.

With Tikehau Capital, CROWD has found the optimal partner to further grow and consolidate its position as a visionary leader in cycling infrastructure and street furniture.”
