Pullach, 24 February 2015 – Sixt SE is currently examining an IPO by its subsidiary Sixt Leasing AG. The Sixt Leasing AG is the parent company of the Leasing Business Unit, under which all activities of private and corporate customer leasing as well as fleet management are subsumed.

The objective for the subsidiary’s separate listing is to substantially strengthen the capital base in the leasing business by adding equity from the capital market. This shall improve the financing structure of the Leasing Business Unit and also create financial latitude for further growth in the leasing business, whilst also leaving untouched the equity ratio of the strongly expanding Vehicle Rental Business Unit. In addition, the Leasing Business Unit’s financing shall become more independent of the Group parent Sixt SE in the medium term. Sixt SE still plans to retain a major interest in Sixt Leasing AG even after the IPO.

At present Sixt SE and Sixt Leasing AG are examining the structure and details of such a potential transaction.

Erich Sixt, Chairman of the Managing Board of Sixt SE: “Over the last few years Sixt Group’s leasing business has followed a sustained growth track and performed successfully. A separate listing of Sixt Leasing AG, which we are currently examining, would offer investors the opportunity to make pinpointed investments in the excellent growth potential of our leasing business.”
