Year after year the leasing industry was used to set new records. As a result of 2009’s recession, leasing companies do not only suffer from a lower demand but also from a lack of new leasing contracts. Some players will not have any chance for new business in the future. If those players did not prepare for these hard times, they would vanish into thin air, says Thiemo Rehländer. The overall industry is therefore on the verge of consolidation, adds the finace expert from Arthur D. Little.
