2023 key milestones reached

Synergies and Costs to achieve confirmed

On 8 February 2024, Tim Albertsen, CEO of Ayvens, commenting on the full year 2023 Group results, stated:

2023 was marked by the acquisition of LeasePlan and our teams’ commitment to become one and to lay the foundations for the successful creation of the leading global sustainability mobility player. In our PowerUP 2026 plan, we defined our strategy to shape the future of our industry and achieve excellence around our 4 priorities: clients, operational efficiency, responsibility and profitability. This plan is supported by state-of-the-art technology as well as our new global mobility brand ‘Ayvens’. A few months into the integration, I am grateful for the unwavering commitment of our employees who maintained the highest standards of customer service while efficiently implementing our integration plan, which progresses according to schedule.

In the context of normalizing used car markets, higher inflation and volatile interest rates, Ayvens posted mixed financial results for a transition year, compared to an exceedingly high 2022 base, but confirmed its strong capital position. In accordance with our strategic plan, our teams are tackling these challenges head on and have undertaken decisive steps to restore our margins, reduce the volatility of our revenues and protect the value of our assets. I am confident that we can achieve this, thanks to our unique competitive position and proven agility, and that we will be able to see the benefits by the end of this year.
