Fastned goes public and chooses NPEX 

Amsterdam, 8 May 2014. Fastned, the company that builds a nationwide network of fast-charging stations for electric cars in the Netherlands, has announced that it is preparing to go public – and has chosen NPEX for its listing. Fastned aims to raise EUR 40m to finance 201 fast-charging stations along the Dutch highways. The listing is planned for June, but those who are interested can pre subscribe now through the Fastned website. The date of the emission is still dependent on the timely approval of the prospectus by the Dutch Financial Authority AFM.

Co-founder Bart Lubbers: “Fastned has chosen NPEX because this stock exchange offers the most direct link between investor and Fastned. The financing is – like Fastned itself – completely transparent, without the need for parties such as a broker, clearing house, custodian, liquidity provider, etc. In this way, Fastned can engage with its investors and create a tight community. Furthermore NPEX is easily accessible which makes it possible for everyone in the Netherlands to become co-owner of the gas stations of the future.”

The realisation of the nationwide network of fast-charging stations by Fastned is based on the fast growing number of electric cars. Car manufacturers like Tesla, BMW, Nissan, Volkswagen and Renault have already invested billions in factories for the production of these cars. More and more cars of these factories are hitting the road and with that the necessity to fast-charge. Co-founder Michiel Langezaal: “We are the Shell of the future, except that our sources are the sun and the wind.”

Über Fastned

Fastned entwickelt ein europäisches Ladenetzwerk von überdachten Schnellladestationen, an denen alle Elektroautos aufladen können. Das Unternehmen baut und betreibt die Standorte mit mehreren Ladegeräten, an denen Elektroautos in nur 20 Minuten aufladen können, entlang vielbefahrener Autobahnen. Das ermöglicht es Fahrerinnen und Fahrern, mit ihren Elektroautos durch ganz Europa zu reisen. Fastned ist derzeit mit 63 Ladestationen in den Niederlanden und künftig auch in Deutschland aktiv und wird sein Netzwerk in weiteren europäischen Ländern ausbauen. Momentan bereitet Fastned den Bau von Schnellladestationen in Deutschland, Großbritannien und Belgien vor. Die Aktien von Fastned sind an der Börse Nxchange notiert.

Die Umsetzung eines solchen europäischen Schnellladenetzwerkes ist eine Reaktion auf die schnell wachsende Zahl von reinen Elektroautos. Automobilhersteller wie Tesla, Audi, Volvo, Aston Martin, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Ford, General Motors und Renault investieren Milliarden von Euro in die Entwicklung und Produktionskapazität von reinen Elektrofahrzeugen. Mit der steigenden Zahl von Elektroautos steigt auch die Nachfrage nach qualitativer Ladeinfrastruktur. Fastned reagiert auf diese Nachfrage mit dem Bau der „Tankstelle der Zukunft“. Mitbegründer und CEO Michiel Langezaal: „Wir sind die Shell der Zukunft, aber unsere Energie kommt von der Sonne und dem Wind.“
