PHV hire firm Splend signs £75million credit facility with Pollen Street Capital



Splend, a vehicle subscription business for rideshare and delivery drivers, today announced a new senior secured credit facility with Pollen Street Capital, a purpose led private capital asset manager.

The new credit facility will support Splend in accelerating its transition to green mobility and help the growing number of on-demand workers earn an income and be successful.

Founded by Chris King in 2015, Splend focuses heavily on technology and data, which has paved the way for the company to become the largest global provider of flexible vehicle subscriptions for on-demand drivers.


Splend operates in 10 cities across Australia and the UK with a growing team of 100 employees. The business has set a target fleet size of 10,000 EV ride-share and delivery vehicles by 2024.

Chris King, CEO and founder of Splend, said: “At Splend, we’re passionate about sustainability and the time-sensitive need to decarbonise transport, improving both air quality and reducing atmospheric carbon levels. Today’s announcement will enable us to fast-track our transition to green mobility and provide our members an increasing range of products with zero tailpipe emissions. We are pleased to partner with a high-quality, institutional investor like Pollen Street who understood our ambitious yet achievable goals from Day 1.”

Michael Katramados, Partner, Pollen Street Capital, said: “We are excited to partner with Splend and support the business as it works to decarbonise rideshare and delivery services. This facility aligns strongly with Pollen Street’s commitment to investments that drive positive impact. Splend is dedicated to supporting its members through all aspects of on-demand driving and the team’s focus on transitioning the industry to green mobility is something we are proud to support.”
