SG Fleet and LeasePlan to combine in Australia and New Zealand
LeasePlan Corporation, one of the world’s leading Car-as-a-Service companies, and SG Fleet, a provider of integrated mobility services, today announce that they have signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) via which LeasePlan Corporation will divest 100% of its shares in LeasePlan Australia Ltd and LeasePlan New Zealand Ltd to SG Fleet.
As part of the transaction, LeasePlan Corporation will receive a combination of cash and shares in ASX-listed SG Fleet Group Ltd and create an international alliance to service LeasePlan Corporation’s clients in the region after completion of the acquisition.
By joining forces with one of the region’s most competitive Car-as-a-Service companies, LeasePlan’s Australian and New Zealand operations will be best positioned to serve their growing customer base and compete for local market growth opportunities.
For SG Fleet, the acquisition will create a AUD $2.5 billion company offering a highly compelling fleet management and leasing offering across Australia and New Zealand, with a combined 250,000 vehicles under management.
The transaction is expected to close around mid-year, subject to customary regulatory approvals.
