Since TDR’s investment

Transformation of LeasePlan into a leading mobility solutions provider

  • Rapid implementation of a more centralised organisation to streamline decision-making and promote best practice sharing across divisions and geographies
  • New commercial initiatives and a new mobility strategy launched, to take advantage of changing market dynamics, driven by a shift from car ownership to car-as-a-service
  • Significant investment in the digital capabilities of the business
  • LeasePlan became an industry leader in sustainability, advocating for a reduction in emissions from the automotive industry through its net zero commitments. Furthermore, the company issued the first green bond in the sector and promoted EV adoption with its clients through EV-related client services and various partnerships with EV automakers as well as charging infrastructure providers

Sale of LeasePlan to ALD Automotive in May 2023 to form a leading global mobility solutions provider, with LeasePlan shareholders retaining a c.31% stake in Ayvens listed on Euronext

  • A highly strategic and synergistic combination bringing together complementary capabilities and expertise to capture the significant growth opportunity in the mobility market
