Europlan is a recognised leader in the autoleasing sector in Russia, with a market share of 30%. The company intends to strengthen its position further and develop its business in other sectors of the leasing market.
The company started out in 1999 in Rostov-on-Don, when a group of professionals in small business financing established a regional firm providing equipment leasing. The same year, the company opened offices in Moscow, St Petersburg and Ekaterinburg. Baring Vostok Private Equity Fund purchased the company in a management buyout (MBO) in November 2003.
