At the end of  2015, the company announced  the  acquisition  of  MKB  Autoleasing  in  Hungary and

Bulgaria, thus strengthening its positioning in these countries: ALD Automotive became a major

player on the Hungarian automotive fleet management market and reasserted its leading position in Bulgaria.

ALD Automotive strengthens its position in Latin America by opening a subsidiary in Chile in early 2015.

The company also closes a deal with Compania General de Electricidad early 2016, thus winning the most important bid in Chile (950 leased vehicles).

With this new deal and the recent opening of a subsidiary in Peru, ALD Automotive is strengthening its business growth on the automotive leasing market in the Latin American zone.
