BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions pursues its international development and reinforces its presence in Romania with the acquisition of IKB Leasing. Already announced on June 11, the acquisition was completed on November 27 in Bucharest, Romania.

BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, the leading European leasing provider, has been offering finance solutions for professional equipment in Romania since 2008 with a team of 45 employees.

The IKB Leasing Romania acquisition will reinforce BNP Paribas Leasing Solution’s local expertise to better serve its customers and partners in the country. The objectives are to accelerate the development on the agriculture market and to diversify on other markets.

“This new acquisition allows us to strengthen our teams of experts in Romania to support even more customers and partners in a region where leasing-type financial solutions are in increasing demand. Indeed, in 2017, the Romanian leasing market posted a growth of 10% year-on-year, with nearly 2 billion euros in equipment financing,” says Charlotte Dennery, CEO of BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions.

Pioneer of the usage economy, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions will also pursue its ambition to support companies in Romania and help them move from the ownership business model to the one of leasing.

Current IKB Leasing Romania and BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions Romania’ clients and partners will be able to rely on the expertise of a larger expert team of 75 employees led by Lionel Piquer, CEO at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions in Romania.
