Goldbell to Invest Up to $40m in BlueSG Following Acquisition


Section A
Goldbell acquires BlueSG; plans up to $40m investment by 2023 Vehicle leasing and distribution company Goldbell Group announced on Monday (Oct 18) its finalisation on the acquisition of electric car-sharing player BlueSG, after the announcement was made in February 2021.

The group, in a press statement, highlighted that out of the planned S$70 million investment capital for the next five years, 60 per cent or S$40 million will be made by 2023, as part of its growth acceleration strategy. A key priority of the investment will be the establishment of an open innovation platform in Singapore through BlueSG, which will act as a test bed for new and experimental pilot technologies.

Goldbell also noted that it is on track to expand the BlueSG fleet size with immediate effect, and that it will increase its staff strength by 20 per cent at the end of this year. To realise BlueSG's business and technical capabilities expansion potential will be among Goldbell's immediate priorities. It aims to achieve this by

developing a business model that will be replicated among other smart cities in the Asia-Pacific. The group said that this effort will be kicked off from the establishment of BlueSG's global headquarters for car sharing by the end of 2021, which also "sets the stage" for overseas expansion. With the finalisation of the acquisition, Jenny Lim, who was previously BlueSG's commercial and network director, has now been appointed by Goldbell as BlueSG's head of Singapore, responsible for overall operations.Goldbell chief executive Arthur Chua commented that since the announcement of the acquisition eight months ago, the company has been laying the groundwork to bring BlueSG to its next level of growth. "Not only are we interested in deploying newer generation, experimental technologies in car-sharing fleet we also looking forward to working with companies, as well as local institutes of higher learning and research institutes, to realise our vision to evolve the BlueSG fleet into a living lab for future mobility innovations," he noted. Goldbell also affirmed that BlueSG customers will continue to enjoy the same services as before, following the proposed acquisition and rebranding of the BlueSG island wide network of more than 1,500 electric vehicles charging points by a global multi-energy
company, TotalEnergies.

"We look forward to working with a variety of charging infrastructure providers in Singapore and are excited about the interest this is already generating among potential international original equipment manufacturers who are looking to tap into our BlueSG brand to showcase their new electric vehicle models, as part of our fleet expansion quest," added Chua.

TotalEnergies inks deal to buy BlueSG's electric vehicle charging networkO TO French energy giant TotalEnergies has inked a deal to buy electric vehicle charging provider Bluecharge from Paris-listed transport group Bolloré.
Bluecharge operates some 1,500 charge points for both private vehicles and car-sharing service BlueSG, which Bolloré is in the process of selling to Singapore commercial leasing firm Goldbell Group.
