SDG INVESTMENTS facilitates micro-mobility financing solution for nextbike

Frankfurt am Main, June 9, 2022 - SDG INVESTMENTS GmbH acted as exclusive advisor to TIER Mobility-owned nextbike GmbH (nextbike), Leipzig, in a multi-country asset-based financing transaction. The debt is secured against receivables from long-term concessions with 15+ European cities and has been provided by a prominent European-based sustainability investor. nextbike will use the proceeds of the transaction to cover capital-expenditure needs for the provision of bike-sharing infrastructure while reducing its cost structure to further strengthen their market position in Germany and Europe.

As the European market leader in bike-sharing, nextbike provides a full-service solution to municipalities and public transport companies looking for a sustainable inner-city transport option to reduce motorised traffic and greenhouse emissions, as well as improving air quality.

Following the successful placement of corporate bonds in the past, this has been the fourth transaction SDG INVESTMENTS has arranged for nextbike over the last five years. It also demonstrates the success of SDG INVESTMENTS’ mission to make the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals investable.

With its sustainable business model in the field of micro mobility, nextbike supports the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDG):

SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being

SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
