The Platform Group AG acquires bicycle parts platform

Düsseldorf, 11 July 2024.
The Platform Group AG (ISIN DE000A2QEFA1, “TPG”), a leading software company for platform solutions, has acquired a majority stake in Jungherz GmbH. Jungherz operates the Radzentrum Nagold (a stationary bicycle center), the Fahrradteile-Shop (an online shop for bicycle parts) and is a licensed partner for Centurion, Haibike, Ghost, Scott, and other renowned brands.

Falko Borkhart, Managing Director of Jungherz GmbH: “We are looking forward to growing together with TPG in the future and expanding our activities particularly with TPG’s portfolio company Bike-Angebot. Since we are addressing the same market, we see great potential to better serve the accessories segment as a platform in addition to e-bikes.”

Jungherz GmbH will be 90% owned by TPG in the future. The assets of the former Greendonkey GmbH were acquired prior to the transaction and transferred to the company. At the Nagold site, 30 employees work in the areas of online retail, platform, partners, and services.

Dr. Dominik Benner, CEO of The Platform Group AG: “With the majority acquisition of Jungherz, we are strengthening our Freight Goods segment and can strategically expand the accessories range together with Bike-Angebot. With the automated Autostore warehouse system in use at Jungherz, the stage is set for further growth. We are buying anti-cyclically: the bicycle market is currently in a state of crisis, so we are seizing the opportunity and benefiting as a platform from the wide range of products being on offer.”

Closing of the transaction is expected by the end of July 2024. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
