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.
