Greyp Bikes wish to reveal the purchase of a bulk risk in Greyp by Porsche.
Because 2018, Porsche has actually held a risk of around 10 percent in Greyp through Porsche Ventures. The first risk was obtained at the exact same time as the financial investment in Rimac Automobili. Porsche has actually currently chosen to obtain a bulk risk in Greyp Bikes d.o.o.
The growth of Porsche’s shareholding in Greyp happens within a prospective growth of tasks in the electrical bike sector. Porsche has actually acknowledged the marketplace and also technology possibility of Greyp and also has actually chosen to furthermore reinforce its setting within its framework. Along with Porsche as the brand-new bulk investor, Friend Rimac and also various other Greyp owners will certainly maintain their existing shares in the business. According to the Greyp Shareholders Arrangement, this purchase requires to be completed by December 18 th, 2021.
Mate Rimac, Chief Executive Officer of Rimac Team mentioned:
” I have actually constantly thought that Greyp has the prospective to be a widely effective, first-rate business and also among the leaders of the market” “I am incredibly happy with the Greyp group, led by Krešimir Hlede, and also what they have actually constructed over the last 7 years. The 100-people solid group has actually certainly produced one of the most linked and also highly progressed e-bikes on the marketplace, established collection manufacturing in Sveta Nedelja and also delivered bikes throughout the globe. At the exact same time, Greyp has actually remained in the darkness of Rimac and also can never ever prosper in its complete possibility.
Currently, we are beginning an interesting brand-new phase in the business’s background – with Porsche getting the bulk risk in Greyp. This will certainly be the seed for something wonderful and also huge, yet we’ll discuss that afterward.
The bargain is still in last implementation so I can not state much yet, yet right here are a couple of points that I can state:

We intend to do huge points, or else Porsche and also us would certainly not be doing this
This will certainly protect a fantastic future for Greyp staff members and also bring remarkable worth for Croatia as one more evidence of being an electrical automobile R&D hotspot
I will certainly stay a minority investor. While I will certainly concentrate my time totally on the Rimac Team, I will certainly still be included with Greyp and also aid where I can.
All token-holders of Greyp will certainly be cared for – this will certainly be connected carefully quickly.
I am eagerly anticipating share even more details quickly – as this brand-new constellation is mosting likely to be super-positive for everybody included”.
The Porsche financial investment will certainly increase additional r & d in all areas of e-mobility and also linked innovation within Greyp and also comes as a verification of Greyp’s vision of micro-mobility, which redefines the customer experience of e-biking with software program and also IoT. Both firms, with the sharing of expertise, sources and also Porsche’s tried and tested introducing spirit in wheelchair, purpose to considerably raise Greyp’s procedures, especially in R&D, with the purpose of making wheelchair a lot more enjoyable, functional and also secure for their customers.
