On 3 May 2024, Tim Albertsen, CEO of Ayvens, commenting on the Q1 2024 Group results, stated:

I am glad that Ayvens started 2024 on a positive note in several aspects, which puts us in a strong position to achieve our objectives.

First, in a mixed economic environment, where demand slowed, we recorded good Q1 2024 financial results and a clear upturn on the previous quarter, despite the weakening of the BEV10 used car market. This promising performance reflects the solidity of our business model, as well as our agility and our capacity to swiftly implement our strategic roadmap.

Meanwhile, we recorded synergies from the LeasePlan acquisition for the first time in our income statement this quarter. This demonstrates the power of scale and the high potential for value creation for our stakeholders. Thanks to our unrivalled leadership, not only are we buying and selling more efficiently, but we’re also strengthening our competitive edge.

Finally, the obtention in March, of regulatory approvals to proceed with the merger and streamlining of our operations is a key milestone, allowing us to accelerate the integration and to deliver further synergies.

All this has been achieved thanks to the hard work of our teams, who have demonstrated the utmost team spirit and commitment to this transformational journey.
