Founders and institutional shareholders have sold Company Bike Solutions to DPE

Munich-based Company Bike is a leading provider of bike mobility solutions, offering fully integrated bike leasing services to large corporations in Germany. Following a successful positioning in the market and a stellar historical growth record, the founders were looking for a partner to support Company Bike’s next growth phase.

DPE has acquired a majority stake in Company Bike with the founders retaining a significant minority stake. Under the new ownership, the company is looking to continue its highly successful and proven growth strategy in Germany and in Europe. The management team will remain in their roles and further develop Company Bike in partnership with DPE and the founders.

Lincoln International acted as the 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 as well as business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) and mobility solutions business models.
