Ebusco, a Dutch pioneer and frontrunner in the development of electric buses and charging systems as well as a supplier of ancillary services to the electric vehicle ecosystem, today announced its intention to launch an Initial Public Offering (IPO) and admission to listing and trading of its ordinary shares on Euronext Amsterdam. The IPO is expected to take place in the coming weeks, subject to market conditions and other relevant considerations.
In 2016, ING, through ING Corporate Investments, acquired a 25% stake in Ebusco for an undisclosed amount. ING has acted as a strategic banking partner of Ebusco ever since and supported the company in achieving its growth ambitions.
