TIER, the European micro-mobility leader, raises USD60 million in Asset-Backed Financing from Goldman Sachs 
Berlin, June 2, 2021 - TIER, the European micro-mobility leader, has secured USD60m of asset-backed financing from 
Goldman Sachs. The debt facility from the leading investment banking, securities and investment management firm is the 
first of such scale in micro-mobility and will fuel TIER's e-scooter fleet expansion for 2021. 
In what is a proven model in the automotive sector, climate-neutral TIER has now unlocked significant asset-backed 
financing in micro-mobility. The innovative move by Goldman Sachs signals another major vote of confidence in a 
business that has performed strongly despite the Covid-19 crisis, following TIER's recent USD250m Series C funding round 
led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2. It also follows news that TIER has won the hugely competitive London e-scooter tender, 
after enjoying similar success in the highly-prized Paris and Dubai bids. 
As well as helping to extend TIER's international coverage across strategic growth markets and enabling investment in a 
multi-modal fleet of electric scooters, bicycles and mopeds, the new capital will drive expansion of the TIER Energy 
Network. With this unique innovation, battery charging stations will be installed in retail stores across Europe and 
the Middle East to power electric vehicles in a way that drives operational efficiency whilst giving the high street a 
financial boost and enabling users to enjoy free trips. 
Ben Payne, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, commented: "Even amid a global pandemic, TIER has established a proven 
track record of profitable unit economics and asset longevity. We are excited to help the European leader extend 
sustainable mobility to more people across the world." 
Alex Gayer, Chief Financial Officer at TIER, added: "The size of this highly scalable asset-backed debt facility is a 
game-changing first in micro-mobility, accelerating our expansion and cementing our market leadership in Europe. This 
facility leverages our recent equity raise and will enhance our capital-efficient growth."
