Eindhoven, The Netherlands, May 26, 2016 – Based on annual results reported for the 2015 Leaseurope Ranking of European Leasing Companies, DLL is ranked #4 in new business volume within Europe and #2 in new business volume outside of Europe. Additionally, for the fifth year in a row, DLL tops the Monitor’s list of Vendor Channel New Business Volume Leaders in the U.S.
These rankings are in line with the healthy 2015 figures DLL released in March. The company’s focus on partnerships, dedicated industry knowledge, balanced spread of activities across regions and robust risk management led to strong year-over-year growth. DLL recorded a net profit of EUR 525 (USD 582) million for FY2015, representing an increase of 15.6% in performance compared to FY2014. In 2015, DLL also experienced strong growth across all business lines and geographies and benefitted from currency effects.
The result was an 11.5% year-over-year increase in new business originations coupled with a strong 8.5% increase in the company’s managed portfolio, which now totals EUR 37.5 (USD 40.8) billion. DLL’s commitment to a global structure and focus on industry specialization was again validated in a challenging economic environment.
