PRESS RELEASE

Allane Mobility Group presents new growth strategy "FAST LANE 27" at the Annual General Meeting

  • Expansion of the product range: e.g. Car-as-a-Service, Used Car Leasing and Corporate Mobility
  • Expansion of the business model by two pillars: Captive Leasing and On-Site-Retail
  • Growth through innovation, cooperation and internationalization
  • Increasing the share of alternative drive systems in the fleet
  • Annual General Meeting 2022 adopts all agenda items

Pullach, 01 July 2022 – The Allane Mobility Group (formerly Sixt Leasing), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, presented its new strategy "FAST LANE 27" at this year’s Annual General Meeting. The overriding goal of the new strategic direction is to meet changing customer needs and return to profitable growth. The AGM approved all items on the agenda with a large majority.

Donglim Shin, CEO of Allane SE: "With 'FAST LANE 27' we want to generate additional added value for our customers, partners, employees, and investors and take advantage of further growth opportunities. Therefore, we have put together a comprehensive package of measures that includes new offers and services as well as the expansion of our business model. With this, we are convinced that we are laying the foundation for sustainable growth.”

Back on the fast track with "FAST LANE 27”
The new strategic direction of the Allane Mobility Group lays the foundation for becoming the leading mulit-brand provider of comprehensive mobility solutions in Europe in the long term. The focus of "FAST LANE 27" is on the strategic realignment of the business model. Among other things, the established three business pillars with Captive Leasing and On-Site Retail are to be expanded by a fourth and a fifth pillar. Captive Leasing is currently in the pilot phase. At its core is a leasing portal developed by Allane Mobility Group that allows manufacturers to market their vehicles to customers through their own dealer network. Since the third quarter of 2021, Allane Mobility Group has been testing the portal with Hyundai and Kia, which will also open up new expansion opportunities in foreign markets such as the Netherlands, Spain or Italy in the medium term. In the longer term, the company does not rule out further cooperations with other manufacturers. For On-Site Retail (autohaus24), the fifth business pillar, the Allane Mobility Group plans to further develop what is currently the largest independent used car dealer in Germany into a comprehensive mobility hub for car-related products and services. In addition to buying a car, customers will also be able to have used cars reconditioned, trade in vehicles or take out suitable insurance policies.

In addition, the Allane Mobility Group intends to further expand its offering in the existing business areas of Online Retail, Fleet Leasing and Fleet Management by taking into account trends such as car-as-a-service, used car leasing, electric mobility and modular services in the area of corporate mobility. At the same time, innovation and cooperations are also to be given greater focus.

Another important component of "FAST LANE 27" is the goal of becoming more sustainable, with Allane Mobility Group further increasing the share of alternative drive systems in its fleet and promoting green mobility solutions.

Resolutions of the 2022 Annual General Meeting
The shareholders approved all items on the agenda of this year's Annual General Meeting of Allane SE – including the changes to the Supervisory Board. Mr Norbert van den Eijnden was elected as a member of the Supervisory Board for the remainder of the current term of office of the Supervisory Board. As Ms Hyunjoo Kim and Mr Chi Whan Yoon had both resigned from their positions as previous members of the Supervisory Board with effect from the end of 31 May 2022, supplementary elections were held at this year's Annual General Meeting for two additional seats on the Supervisory Board. The shareholders of Allane SE elected Mr Su Ho Kim and Mr Hyung Seok Lee as additional members to the Supervisory Board of the company.

All information on the Annual General Meeting 2022 and the corresponding voting results are available on the Allane Mobility Group Website.

Allane Mobility Group: Revenue and earnings growth in Q1 2022

DGAP-News: Allane SE / Key word(s): Quarterly / Interim Statement/Quarter Results
Allane Mobility Group: Revenue and earnings growth in Q1 2022
11.05.2022 / 09:31
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Allane Mobility Group: Revenue and earnings growth in Q1 2022

  • Stable Group contract portfolio
  • Consolidated revenue increased by 1.7%
  • Earnings before taxes (EBT) rose significantly to EUR 4.4 million
  • Forecast for the 2022 financial year confirmed

Pullach, 11 May 2022 – Allane Mobility Group (former Sixt Leasing), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as specialist in management and full-service leasing of large fleets, has recorded a slight increase in consolidated revenue and a significant increase in earnings before taxes (EBT) in the first quarter of 2022. Overall, the company developed in line with expectations.

Donglim Shin, CEO of Allane SE: “I am happy to report growth in both revenue and earnings for the first quarter of 2022. We have developed fully in line with our plans. In order to take advantage of future growth opportunities, we are pushing forward the digitization of our business and developing new products and services for our customers, which we intend to launch over the course of the year.”

Business development

Business development in the first three months of 2022 continued to be affected in particular by the COVID-19 pandemic and the supply restrictions for new cars due to the semiconductor shortage. The Group’s contract portfolio in Germany and abroad (excluding franchise and cooperation partners) was nearly stable with 128,610 contracts as of 31 March 2021 (31 December 2021: 128,800 contracts).

In the first quarter of 2022, consolidated revenue increased slightly by 1.7 per cent compared to the same period in the previous year to EUR 189.8 million. This is mainly due to the increase in sales revenue. Operating revenue, which does not include the proceeds from vehicle sales, decreased by 1.9 per cent to EUR 95.8 million. Sales revenue from the sale of leasing returns and marketing of customer vehicles in Fleet Management increased by 5.6 per cent to EUR 94.0 million. This development is mainly caused by a further increase in the unit price of vehicles sold due to the continued high demand for used cars.

In the first three months of 2022, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) increased slightly by 0.7 per cent to EUR 47.6 million compared to the same period in the previous year. Earnings before taxes (EBT) saw a significant increase of 350.8 per cent to EUR 4.4 million. This is in line with expectations due to the very strong sales result of lease returns as a consequence of further increasing sales prices. The operating return on revenue (EBT/operating revenue) therefore also improved substantially to 4.6 per cent (Q1 2021: 1.0 per cent).

Outlook

Allane Mobility Group confirms the outlook published on 29 April 2022. Accordingly, the Managing Board expects to have a Group contract portfolio in a range of 130,000 to 150,000 contracts (2021: 128,845 contracts) and a consolidated operating revenue of between EUR 350 million and EUR 400 million (2021: EUR 386.0 million) in the current 2022 financial year. For EBT, the company expects a higher single-digit million euro amount (2021: EUR 6.1 million).

The reasons for this forecast are, in addition to the operating business development in the current financial year so far, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the supply restrictions for new cars due to the semiconductor shortage and the potential impact of the war in Ukraine on the automotive market. The Allane Mobility Group expects the market and business environment for new contracts and usage-based revenues to continue to be negatively impacted by the aforementioned factors. However, the company expects a recovery in business development of new contracts and usage-based revenues in the second half of the year due to a normalization of the COVID-19 pandemic, although the delay in new cars supply and the impact of the war in Ukraine on the European economies still remains.

With regard to EBT, the remarketing business is not expected to match the results achieved in the previous months during the remainder of the year. In addition, the consolidated net result in the 2022 financial year will continue to be burdened by transaction-related costs in connection with the acquisition of the company by Hyundai Capital Bank Europe GmbH (HCBE).

Allane Mobility Group: autohaus24 is among the best used car dealers in Germany

Pullach, 3 May 2022 - Allane Mobility Group (former Sixt Leasing), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as a specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, is one of the six best used car dealers in Germany with its subsidiary autohaus24 GmbH and its Munich-Eching location according to this year's Used Car Awards. The prize was awarded by the trade journal "Gebrauchtwagen Praxis" together with Autoboerse.de, Dekra and Real Garant in Würzburg. From a large number of applicants, car dealers were awarded that best convinced the jury in terms of creative sales ideas, clear processes, excellent service and convincing concepts for marketing and presentation in the used car trade.

Werner König, Managing Director of autohaus24 GmbH: "We are delighted that our location in Munich-Eching is one of the best businesses at this year's Used Car Awards. We owe this success in part to our efficient processes, which are designed to create the best possible customer experience."

Efficient process handling at autohaus24

At its location in Munich-Eching, autohaus24 offers an average of around 300 used cars of various brands and price categories. The majority of these are returns from Sixt Leasing, a brand of the Allane Mobility Group. In addition to the location in Munich-Eching, autohaus24 has two further dispositions in Frankfurt-Egelsbach and Berlin-Ludwigsfelde.

At all three locations, the company sells Sixt Leasing returns and Sixt new cars. The processes at autohaus24 are highly standardised and automated - from acceptance to arranging the test drive. For example, all returns are distributed from Munich-Eching to the various locations. These processes enable the sales staff at autohaus24 GmbH to concentrate fully on selling the used cars. In addition to sales at its three German locations, the company also sells its vehicles via the autohaus24.de website, where it is also possible to configure a new car.

Allane Mobility Group publishes Annual Report 2021

Allane Mobility Group publishes Annual Report 2021
29.04.2022 / 08:01

Allane Mobility Group publishes Annual Report 2021

  • Group contract portfolio and consolidated revenue almost stable compared to previous year's figures
  • Business development in line with adjusted expectations
  • Announcement of the new corporate strategy 'FAST LANE 27' as a basis for future growth
  • Outlook 2022: Increase in contract portfolio expected

Pullach, 29 April 2022 - Allane Mobility Group (former Sixt Leasing SE), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as a specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, has published its Annual Report 2021. Accordingly, the business development in 2021 is in line with the adjusted expectations. The business performance was particularly affected by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the overall economic situation. Within the scope of the annual report, the Managing board of Allane Mobility Group also releases its forecast for the current 2022 financial year. In addition, the company announces the publication of its new strategy programme 'FAST LANE 27' for the second quarter of 2022.

Business development
In the Online Retail business field, the contract portfolio decreased by 5.4 per cent to 36,500 contracts in the period from end of December 2020 to end of December 2021, while in the Fleet Leasing business field, it fell by 11.9 per cent to 33,300 contracts. The decline in both these business fields resulted particularly from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Fleet Management business field, by contrast, the contract portfolio rose by 10.3 per cent to 59,000 contracts, thus reaching a new all-time high. The main reason for this was the acquisition of new customers and the expansion of existing customer relationships. Overall, the Group's contract portfolio in Germany and abroad (excluding franchise and cooperation partners) was slightly below the previous year's figure (129,900 contracts) at 128,800 contracts.

Consolidated revenue fell by 1.0 per cent in the 2021 financial year and thus slightly to EUR 740.4 million. Consolidated operating revenue, which does not include the proceeds from vehicle sales, decreased by 8.8 per cent to EUR 386.0 million. This is mainly due to the significantly reduced vehicle utilisation as a result of COVID-19-related contact restrictions and the associated decline in utilisation-related revenues as well as the declining contract portfolio. In contrast, sales revenues for lease returns and marketed customer vehicles in Fleet Management rose by 9.2 percent to EUR 354.4 million, in particular due to the high demand for used cars.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) declined by 13.0 percent to EUR 184.0 million (2020: EUR 211.4 million) in the reporting year. Consolidated earnings before taxes (EBT) fell by 32.7 per cent to EUR 6.1 million (2020: EUR 9.1 million).

Dividend proposal
For the 2021 financial year, the Managing Board of Allane SE is considering to propose a dividend of EUR 0.06 per share to the Annual General Meeting on 29 June 2022. This dividend proposal takes into account the uncertainty caused by the war in Ukraine and would result in a payout ratio of just over 21% of the consolidated net income for the 2021 financial year. The proposal for the appropriation of profits is subject to the approval of the Supervisory Board and will be published with the agenda for the 2022 Annual General Meeting. The previously communicated target range of 30 to 60% remains unchanged regardless of the payout ratio for the 2021 financial year.

Donglim Shin, CEO of Allane SE: "Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, we have maintained both contract portfolio and Group revenue at almost the same level as the previous year. In addition, we have taken a big step forward in terms of the digitalisation of our business model. In order to take advantage of future growth opportunities and meet changing customer needs, we want to develop strategically. Therefore, in the second quarter of 2022, we will start the implementation of our new strategy programme 'FAST LANE 27', which is designed to get us back on the fast track."

New strategy 'FAST LANE 27'
To generate even more added value for customers, partners, employees and shareholders in the future, Allane Mobility Group has developed a new strategy programme called 'FAST LANE 27'. The programme comprises a comprehensive package of measures to be implemented by 2027. 'FAST LANE 27' is aimed, among other things, at expanding the business model in a targeted manner, launching a larger number of offers on the market, driving forward the internationalisation of Allane Mobility Group and strengthening the aspect of sustainability by offering environmentally friendly mobility solutions, as well as further increasing the share of alternative drive systems in the fleet.

Outlook
According to its forecast published in the 2021 Annual Report, Allane Mobility Group expects to have a Group contract portfolio in a range of 130,000 to 150,000 contracts (2021: 128,845 contracts) and a consolidated operating revenue of between EUR 350 million and EUR 400 million (2021: EUR 382.6 million) in the current 2022 financial year. For EBT, the company expects a higher single-digit million euro amount (2021: EUR 6.1 million).

The reasons for this cautious forecast are, in addition to the operating business development in the current financial year so far, the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the supply restrictions for new cars due to the semiconductor shortage and the potential impact of the war in Ukraine on the automotive market. The Allane Mobility Group expects the market and business environment for new contracts and usage-based revenues to continue to be negatively impacted by the aforementioned factors. However, the company expects a recovery after summer, although the impact of the war in Ukraine on the European economies remains uncertain.

With regard to EBT for the first quarter of 2022, Allane Mobility Group expects the figure to be higher than the corresponding figure for the previous year (Q1 2021: EUR 1.0 million) due to the strong vehicle remarketing business. However, the Managing Board does not expect the remarketing business to match the results achieved in the previous months during the remainder of the year.

In addition, the consolidated net result in the 2022 financial year will continue to be burdened by transaction-related costs in connection with the acquisition of the company by Hyundai Capital Bank Europe GmbH (HCBE).

The full outlook for the 2022 financial year is included in the Allane Mobility Group Annual Report 2021. The report is available on the company's website.

Allane Mobility Group: Stable contract and revenue development in 2021

Allane Mobility Group: Stable contract and revenue development in 2021

  • Group contract portfolio and consolidated revenue almost at previous year's level
  • Business development in line with adjusted expectations
  • Successful further digitalisation of the business model and renaming

Pullach, 23 March 2022 - Allane Mobility Group (former Sixt Leasing SE), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as a specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, has developed in line with adjusted expectations in the 2021 financial year. The business performance was particularly affected by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the overall economic situation. According to preliminary calculations, the Group contract portfolio and the consolidated revenue almost reached the previous year's level.

Successful further digitalisation and renaming
In the 2021 financial year, the Allane Mobility Group achieved several milestones in the digitalisation of its business model. This included, in particular, the introduction of a digital ordering process on sixt-neuwagen.de, the launch of the "FleetIntelligence" analysis tool for fleet managers and the digitalisation of the logistics processes at the used car locations in Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich. In addition, the change of name from Sixt Leasing SE to Allane SE was completed on 5 August 2021.

Donglim Shin, CEO of Allane SE: "The Corona pandemic has again slowed down our business development in 2021. Nevertheless, we have managed to keep the contract portfolio and revenue almost stable and made great leaps forward in the digitalisation of our business model. With our innovative strength, we are laying the foundation to return to the growth path."

Business development
In the Online Retail business field, the contract portfolio decreased by 5.4 per cent to 36,600 contracts in the period from the end of December 2020 to the end of December 2021. In the Fleet Leasing business field, the contract portfolio decreased by 11.9 per cent to 33,300 contracts. The decline in both business fields was mainly due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Fleet Management business unit, on the other hand, the contract portfolio increased by 10.3 per cent to 59,000 contracts and thus reached a new all-time high. The main reason for this was the acquisition of new customers and the expansion of existing customer relationships. Overall, the Group's contract portfolio in Germany and abroad (excluding franchise and cooperation partners) was slightly below the previous year's figure at 128,800 contracts (129,900 contracts).

Consolidated revenue fell slightly by 0.8 per cent to EUR 741.8 million according to preliminary calculations. Consolidated operating revenue, which does not include the proceeds from vehicle sales, decreased by 8.5 per cent to EUR 387.4 million. This is mainly due to the significantly reduced vehicle utilisation as a result of the COVID-19-related contact restrictions and the associated decline in utilisation-related revenues as well as a declining contract portfolio. On the other hand, sales revenues for lease returns and marketed customer vehicles in Fleet Management increased by 9.2 per cent to EUR 354.4 million. This development is mainly due to the high demand for used cars.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) declined by 13.0 per cent to EUR 184.0 million. Consolidated earnings before taxes (EBT) fell by 32.7 per cent to EUR 6.1 million. As a result, the operating return on revenue (EBT/operating revenue) was 1.6 per cent (2020: 2.2 per cent).

Allane Mobility Group will announce the final and audited figures for the 2021 financial year and an outlook for the financial year 2022 with the publication of its Annual Report 2021 on 29 April 2022.

Allane Mobility Group: New car configuration on autohaus24.de now even easier

Pullach, 4 March 2022 - Allane SE (former Sixt Leasing SE), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as a specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, has completely revised the new car configurator on its online platform autohaus24.de. This means that private customers can now put together their dream car even more easily than before.

In addition to the design, the user-friendliness has been optimised for smartphones and tablets. Moreover, users now have the option of comparing several vehicles with each other and selecting even more bonuses and premiums, such as the environmental incentive or the BAFA (Federal Office of Economic Affairs and Export Control) premium for electric vehicles.

Werner König, Managing Director of autohaus24 GmbH: "With our revised new car configurator, we have significantly improved the customer experience on autohaus24.de and successfully completed the overall renewal of our website. We will continue to focus on the needs of our customers in the future."

The relaunch of autohaus24.de, which also included the renewal of the back-end systems, is part of the realignment of autohaus24 GmbH, which began in January 2021 with the redesign of the brand logo, the website and the three locations. In this context, the product range was also expanded both on autohaus24.de and in the used car centres in Frankfurt, Berlin, and Munich.

The Allane Mobility Group is expanding the product portfolio on its online platforms autohaus24.de and sixt-neuwagen.de with all available services. "Customers are increasingly open when it comes to deciding in favour of a new or used car," explains Werner König. "The broader offer takes this trend into account."

Allane Mobility Group: Cooperation with AUTO1.com to market more than 10,000 vehicles per year

Allane Mobility Group: Cooperation with AUTO1.com to market more than 10,000 vehicles per year

  • Allane Mobility Group increases reach by cooperating with Europe's largest platform for used cars, thereby achieving top prices
  • AUTO1.com integrates Allane Mobility Group inventory via automated auction format in real-time
  • Registered partner dealers benefit from an additional offer of more than 10,000 high-quality used cars on AUTO1.com

Pullach, 22 February 2022 - Allane SE (former Sixt Leasing SE), a leading provider in online direct sales of new vehicles in Germany as well as a specialist in the management and full-service leasing of large fleets, is cooperating with AUTO1.com with immediate effect, thus offering more than 10,000 high-quality lease returns and fleet vehicles per year on Europe's largest trading platform for used cars. In a separate, automated real-time auction - the "Catalogue Auction" - the vehicle inventory of the B2B platform is available online to registered partner dealers. By partnering with AUTO1.com, Allane Mobility Group expands its remarketing network to include more than 60,000 active buyers in 30 markets across Europe and achieves top prices for its used cars.

"The technical connection of the systems has worked without any problems and the first runs have delivered very satisfactory results," says Andreas Birgmann, Director Remarketing at Allane SE. "With its focus on the digital business model for the commercial vehicle trade, AUTO1.com is an ideal partner for us to efficiently market our lease returns and fleet vehicles. The innovative spirit that emanates from both sides is an excellent prerequisite for joint business success."

The "Catalogue Auction" takes place weekly and includes 250 to 300 high-quality leasing and fleet vehicles of various brands and models. During the so-called "Catalogue Phase", buyers can examine the vehicles for seven days, put them on their own watch list, and place bids directly. Weekly, every Thursday at 11 a.m., the "Turbo Phase" begins. The vehicles are presented one after the other for a short time. At this moment, buyers have the last chance to place their final highest bid for the highly demanded vehicles and win the auction. After the auction, buyers benefit from the extensive logistics coverage provided by the Europe-wide AUTO1 logistics network with 300 partners. For example, each vehicle can be delivered to the buyer within Germany at a fixed price of EUR 159 (net) within a few days.

"Through our very active buyer network in Europe, our new partner Allane Mobility Group benefits from dynamic bidding behaviour, and as a result, best prices. Car dealers, on the other hand, are always searching for high-quality vehicles that they can buy at fair market prices and sell profitably, especially these days due to the shortage of cars," says Denis Belan, Director of Remarketing Germany at AUTO1.com.

"We are excited to have found another great partner for remarketing and are sure to be able to generate significant value for both parties," says Werner König, Managing Director Remarketing at Allane SE.

"Our registered partners don't switch between different platforms anymore. They can rely on a diverse inventory and our leading associated services from AUTO1.com. With the new partnership, our buyers now have four buying options at their disposal. The Catalogue Auction, the 24-hour Auction, the Customer Auction, and the Instant Purchase option," says Robert Lasek, Managing Director Germany at AUTO1.com.

The Catalogue Auction is now initially available to all registered partner dealers in Germany. It will then also be available in over 30 markets across Europe. Interested parties can register at www.AUTO1.com and will then receive access to the Catalogue Auction.

Allane SE: Increased need for provisions for litigation and high uncertainty regarding EBT expectations for fiscal year 2021

Allane SE / Key word(s): Annual Results
Allane SE: Increased need for provisions for litigation and high uncertainty regarding EBT expectations for fiscal year 2021

02-Feb-2022 / 21:03 CET/CEST
Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


Pullach, February 2, 2022 - Based on a new assessment in the context of litigation against the Company, the Executive Board of Allane SE today came to the conclusion that the provisions recognized in this context for costs resulting from this litigation may increase further in a low single-digit million euro range and that this circumstance would have an impact on the earnings situation in fiscal year 2021. The exact amount of the increase in provisions cannot yet be estimated with sufficient certainty and depends in particular on the continuation of the litigation strategy pursued by the Executive Board, which is currently being evaluated.

The final determination of the provisions required as of December 31, 2021, and the audit of the financial statements for 2021 have not yet been completed at present. The Executive Board is therefore unable to make any reliable statement at this stage on the exact amount of EBT for 2021. However, it has today come to the conclusion that there is a high degree of uncertainty with regard to the EBT forecast for fiscal year 2021 communicated on March 24, 2021 and confirmed on December 8, 2021 within a range of between EUR 5.5 and 6.5 million. The uncertainties in the relevant provisions are currently in the low single-digit million euro range. According to the Company's current plans, the preliminary key financial figures for the financial year 2021 are to be published on March 23, 2022.
