Business Segments

Business Segments

The Sixt Group is a worldwide provider of high-quality, all-inclusive mobility services. It offers its clients customised products that provide mobility for anywhere from a few minutes to several years. Sixt operates primarily through its two Business Units – Vehicle Rental and Leasing – but also offers a number of supplementary mobility services like the DriveNow premium car-sharing programme. The product range is supported and expanded with innovative Internet-based and mobile services.

Sixt SE, which has been a listed stock since 1986, serves as the Group’s holding company, and is responsible for the Group’s strategic and financial management. It also handles various financing matters and provides internal controlling and advisory services, especially for important companies in the Group’s two Business Units, Vehicle Rentals and Leasing. Business operations are handled entirely by the Business Units, whose principal operating companies are Sixt GmbH & Co. Autovermietung KG and Sixt Leasing SE, which has been listed itself since 2015.

Sixt’s Vehicle Rental Business Unit operates almost worldwide, both through its own rental offices and in collaboration with highly effective franchisees and cooperating partners. In Germany, Sixt has a market share of more than 30%, and has been the market leader for many years. The company’s market share is even larger at some airports here, which are especially important in the rental business. In the rest of Europe, the company is one of the leading international service providers. And it is gradually expanding its presence in North America as well. In vehicle rentals, Sixt serves business and corporate clients, as well as private individuals and vacationers. The Group also operates in the accident replacement business.

Sixt Leasing SE, 41.9% of which is owned by Sixt SE, forms together with its subsidiaries the Leasing Business Unit. It is one of the leading vendor-neutral, non-bank leasing companies in Germany, and also operates with franchise partners in roughly 40 countries. We intend to strengthen and expand this market position in the next few years, on the basis of our competitive strengths that we have developed over decades, as well as a forward-looking, time-tested business model, with three business fields of Fleet Leasing, Fleet Management, and Online Retail for both private individuals and commercial clients.

Strategy & Objectives

General

As a leading international provider of high-quality mobility services, Sixt enjoys a great many strenghts that endow the company, founded in 1912, with a unique market position. These include a broad selection of premium vehicles, an attractive price-performance ratio, a thorough service orientation among our employees, and a notable culture of innovation. Sixt is also the only international provider that develops flexible, individualised concepts for its clients, providing mobility from one minute to several years.

Sixt’s long-term strategy aims for brisk further international expansion, a systematic focus on profitability, and a lasting increase in enterprise value.

Strategic Emphases in the Vehicle Rental Business Unit

In the Vehicle Rental Business Unit, Sixt focuses on several points in particular:

  • Ongoing internationalisation is strategically highly important to Sixt. The Group is aiming to further expand its foreign share of rental revenue – both through internal efforts and with the strategic acquisition of locally or regionally operating competitors. Sixt foresees major long-term growth opportunities in the USA, in particular – the world’s largest rental market.
  • Expanding the Group’s worldwide franchise network is another important component of Sixt’s internationalisation strategy. In light of the extensive geographical presence that the Sixt brand has already achieved in more than 100 countries, the focus here will be on increasing Sixt franchise partners’ market shares in the markets where the company already has a presence.
  • Sixt stands for premium products and services. It excels thanks to the above-average quality of its services, a strong customer orientation among its employees, and a prompt adjustment of services to its clients’ changing mobility needs. Its willingness to provide service, and the quality of the service it provides, are its distinctive features over its competitors. Our aim is to delight our clients.
  • Sixt’s orientation as a premium service provider is founded not least of all on a rental fleet of attractive, high-quality, current-model vehicles. These must suit clients’ rising expectations. That’s why more than half of the value of the vehicle inventory is in especially desirable models from premium makers like BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi. These vehicles have top-notch technical capabilities and comfort features.
  • Sixt will continue to apply new technologies in vehicle rentals, as part of the Group’s systematic orientation to innovation. This includes online and mobile solutions for processing rentals, including the options already available for such devices as smartphones and tablet computers. It also employs the Internet not just as a sales channel, but as an advertising medium, and in coming years the Web will play an increasingly prominent role through the use of social networks like Facebook as a communications channel.
  • Another future focus will be on developing innovative mobility services in response to different target groups’ changing mobility preferences. Special importance here attaches to the expansion of the DriveNow car sharing joint venture that Sixt operates together with the BMW Group, as well as the myDriver transfer service launched in 2013.

Strategic Emphases in the Leasing Business Unit

Sixt Leasing SE focuses mainly on these principal points:

  • Continuing its record of high-quality, earnings-oriented growth, thus expanding Sixt Leasing’s position as an innovative, profitable provider of automotive mobility in the German market.
  • Another goal, especially in the Fleet Management business, is to expand business in the rest of Europe, especially by building on existing client relationships.
  • The Group views the Online Retail business as the biggest growth driver for the coming years. Its platform www.sixt-neuwagen.de was the “first mover” to address the future market in online leasing for private individuals and commercial clients, which had hitherto gone almost untapped in Germany.
  • To expand its presence with clients and in its markets, Sixt Leasing also constantly keeps an eye on possibilities for carefully selected acquisitions.
