Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, announces that it has sold its stake in Mobius Group, a tech-enabled mobility and fleet management operator headquartered in Madrid, Spain.

Founded in 2014 by José Piñera, Mobius is a pioneer fleet management, car repair, appraisals, and mechanical warranties player. The company leverages a set of proprietary technological solutions to help customers to digitalize their processes.

With more than €40 million in sales, Mobius is the leading Iberian platform for fleet managers assisting top tier renting and rent-a-car international players as well as major Spanish financial institutions and insurance companies.

Since the Ardian’s Growth team took a stake in the company in 2018, Mobius has more than doubled its revenues and completed 4 acquisitions enabling the company to both diversify its product offering and enlarge the customer base. Mobius has also strengthened its technological expertise by investing in and commercializing new software tools.

"The Ardian’s Growth team has supported us in our development both in terms of new product deployment and build-up plan. Since their investment, they helped us challenge our strategy to scale the company and strengthen our technological positioning. “ José Piñera, Founder and CEO of Mobius Group

“Congratulations to José and the whole Mobius team. It has been very exciting to work alongside them in these years.  Mobius is a great example of Ardian growth’s playbook: identify the leading companies in Europe and help them accelerate the growth via product and geographical expansion as well as build-up strategy.“ Romain Chiudini, Managing Director Growth, Ardian
