  • Our clients was holding a minority share of a car remarketing business in Brazil that was operating under its license and using its brand and technology.
  • It was considered to step up its footprint in Brazil and possibly acquire the majority of the local business.
  • In order to support this decision, the company asked us to evaluate the market and its future attractiveness.


  • We evaluated the macro-economic development and profiled the Brazilian car market, its players, structure, size and trends with focus on fleet remarketing.
  • Consequently a market model was developed, reflecting the transaction flows of cars between the different segments and market players.
  • Relevant fiscal and auction-specific regulation for car transactions was analyzed
  • Finally, the attractiveness of different target clients was assessed and a recommendation for an appropriate go-to-market strategy given.


  • The attractiveness of the Brazilian market for car fleet remarketing was confirmed based on overall car market development, significance of fleets (companies and government, rental, repossessions, banks/leasing) and the needs of the fleet owners.
  • As result of our study, the client decided to acquire a majority of the Brazilian entity and invest into growing the business in Brazil and possible in a next step in other countries of Latin America.
