Our Growth strategy

The basics are in order...

Throughout recent years we’ve worked hard on solidifying the foundation of LEKKER with achievable results.

Organization

We’ve creasted an efficient and scalable team throught 2 continents.

A mix of young and experienced professionals helps to create a powerful data-driven e-commerce business model.

Operation

We have full focus on three large, attractive growth markets: Germany, The Netherlands, and Australia.

The entire chain from design to production and sales to maintenance is optimally organized.

Finance

With the new Gen3 eBikes, we’ve achieved 10% margin improvement, without the bicycles being (too) expensive for the consumer.

… so now we are going to grow at an accelerated pace

We have everything ready for profitable growth, we are ready to make an impact!

Building the brand

The foundation is being a strong and recognizable brand. We will demonstrate to you who we are in more places and with more resources why LEKKER is the best choice for future eBike customers.

Scaling e-commerce sales

We will strengthen our sales based on our data-driven sales model. Invest more in online marketing and ensure that the online shopping experience is positive and effective, with the combination of excellent high rating customer service.

Expanding our service proposition

We will accelerate growth in a sustainable way. We’ll reach more people with more service points and by offering test rides. We will also enter into intensive partnerships with leasing platforms.

Growth capital

To achieve our growth goals, we need capital. This helps us to build sufficient stock to be able to deliver quickly. Also with our ‘best’ in class’ specialist, we increase our marketing efforts for sales & partnerships.

Our financing round

Starting from early 2024, we are in need of €1.5 million in growth capital. We have already raised over €500,000 from existing shareholders, which we have used to finance the inventory of the new Gen3 bikes.

What does it get you?

As a shareholder, you are entitled to all the financial benefits that come with the shares:

Profit sharing

Because we are a company that is still growing rapidly, we reinvest all profits into the company to increase LEKKER’s turnover. In the first few years, we do not expect to pay out any dividends yet. As soon as the profit and financial position allow it, we intend to pay out 50% of the profit as dividends.

Capital gains

Upon the sale of the shares, you will share in any capital gains. We aim to sell LEKKER Bikes in 5 years. All shareholders will then receive a portion of the proceeds proportionally. Of course, we do not know yet what LEKKER Bikes will yield at that time, but we aim for 3-6 times the current value. The expected average annual return through 2028 is then between 25% and 41%.

Finances 2023 - 2028

Strong revenue growth in key markets

>40% year-on-year growth in Germany and the Netherlands, while market position in Australia is being consolidated.

Improvement of gross margin by ~10% in 2024

Due to better terms with suppliers on Gen3 and higher standardization level in the product portfolio.

Limited growth of operating expenses

Growth of 17% in operating expenses despite additional marketing budgets, thanks to economies of scale.

This value has been determined based on commonly applied valuation methodologies and has been validated in the market. (Capital of over €0.5 million has been raised at this value).
