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.”
