Global vehicle management and mobility company LeasePlan is investigating a stock market flotation after record results for the business. The underlying 2017 net result at the leasing giant increased 17% to €532 million ($657 million), while its serviced fleet increased 5.5% to 1.7 million vehicles. A flotation is one of several strategic options for the business, but if approved a listing on the Amsterdam stock exchange could take place as early as June. LeasePlan, which had revenues of €9.4 billion ($11.6 billion) last year, is reshaping itself as a ‘Car-as-a-Service’ provider, offering a variety of services in addition to leasing, including subscription packages that provide access to new and used cars.
