Fastned offers shareholders lifetime free charging
Amsterdam, 19 mei 2015. Starting today, the Dutch company Fastned offers their shareholders the unique benefit of free fast-charging at all Fastned stations for the rest of their life. For this purpose the fast growing company today launched the Fastned Founders Club. Investors that purchase more than 2500 certificates of shares of Fastned of 10 euro apiece automatically become a member of this club and can immediately start charging for free. Joining the Founders Club is a unique and once in a lifetime opportunity for everyone who thinks about driving an electric car and sees opportunities in investing in the service stations of the future.
Fastned already has 31 stations operational, and is adding one new station every week. Co-founder and CEO Michiel Langezaal: “Our goal is similar to mobile telephony - to create a national network of fast charging stations with national coverage, which allows electric cars to go anywhere with peace of mind. Anyone who invests a substantial amount today becomes co-owner of the infrastructure of the future and can use it for free, forever.” Apart from being a shareholder and the privilege of free lifetime charging, members of the Fastned Founders Club are invited to the annual Founders Dinner. Here they can meet other like minded investors and pioneers. The Fastned Founders Club will only be open for a limited time, and for a finite number of investors. At launch the club already has 17 members. Investing is possible via the Fastned website: www.fastned.nl/en/invest. Free charging will automatically be enabled for shareholders who own more than 2500 certificates.

Fastned is building a European network of fast-charging stations where all electric cars can charge within 20 minutes. The stations are located at high traffic locations along the highways and in cities. This will give electric cars the freedom to drive across Europe. As of today, Fastned has 69 stations (including two 350kW stations) operational in The Netherlands and is working on expanding its fast charging network to the rest of Europe. Fastned is preparing the construction of fast charging stations in Germany, The United Kingdom and Belgium. Fastned is listed on the Nxchange stock exchange.
Fastned is rolling out its network of fast charging stations in response to the rapidly increasing numbers of EVs in Europe. Car manufacturers are investing billions of Euros in the development of, and production capacity for EVs. More and more EVs are hitting the roads, which drives the need for charging infrastructure. Fastned is responding to this development by building the service stations of the future. Co-founder and CEO Michiel Langezaal: “We are the Shell of the future, only our energy comes from the sun and the wind.”
