Nicolas Chartier and Guillaume Paoli, co-founders3 of Aramis Group:  “Aramis Group continues its growth trajectory in 2024 and consolidates its European leadership, despite a market that remains somewhat uncertain. Thanks to the strong commitment of its teams and the antifragile business model developed since the Group's inception 22 years ago, it has once again been able to react quickly to market changes and benefit from shifts in its environment.In the first quarter of 2024, Aramis Group achieved double-digit growth in almost all its geographies, a performance much higher than the market overall. Besides the continued rebound of the pre-registered vehicle segment, the good management of our competitive advantages in the refurbished vehicle segment is generating market share gains. In particular, we have capitalized on our significant multichannel supply network and our on-the-ground proximity to seize opportunities with professionals and satisfy an ever-increasing number of customers through our offering of quality vehicles at the right price.In the coming months, we will maintain our commercial efforts, control of our margins, costs, and inventory, in order to fuel our market share conquest in a responsible and sustainable manner. We also note encouraging signs in recent market dynamics. We confirm our annual objectives.”

Analysis of revenues by segment

B2C – sales of cars to private customers (87% of revenues)

Revenues for the B2C segment – corresponding to sales of refurbished and pre-registered cars to private customers – reached €460.5 million in the first quarter of 2024, an increase of +27.1% compared to the first quarter of 2023. Aramis Group sold 26,442 B2C vehicles during the period, a growth of +31.9% compared to last year, and an outperformance of 31 points4 compared to the market for used vehicles less than 8 years old, which is the Group's core target.

In detail, revenues for the refurbished car segment amounts to €360.5 million, growing by +14.7% compared to the first quarter of 2023. 20,817 vehicles were delivered, marking a progression of +18.0%.

Volumes are positively oriented across all geographies, except in Spain. This performance is undoubtedly the result of our ability to identify and seize market opportunities, through a unique business model, committed teams, and technology dedicated to satisfying our customers.

However, activity in Spain remains behind. Clicars, the Spanish subsidiary of the Group, after 6 years of exponential growth, continues its transition. Since last summer, the company has been particularly focused on establishing a reasoned territorial presence in Spain, shifting its mix towards more accessible vehicles, and improving the refurbishing processes at its Villaverde center. A return to a growth trajectory is expected for the second half of 2024        As for the average selling price of refurbished vehicles, it is slightly down (c. -3%), reflecting both mix effects and the impact of the erosion of selling prices in the used vehicle market in general. The decline of the latter has notably accelerated in the United Kingdom since September.

Revenues for the pre-registered car segment amount to €100.0 million, more than doubling (+107.4%) compared to the first quarter of 2023. 5,625 vehicles were delivered, representing a significant increase of +134.2%. The French (Aramisauto) and Belgian (Cardoen) subsidiaries of the Group have been particularly agile in fully benefiting from the recovery of this market segment.

The evolution of the average selling price of pre-registered vehicles is mainly due to mix effects.

B2B – sales of cars to professional customers (8% of revenues)

The B2B segment revenues amount to €39.6 million, a decrease of -24.7% compared to the first quarter of 2023, mainly due to a change in the supply mix. The sourcing of used vehicles from private individuals - a portion of which is resold to professionals, mostly vehicles over 8 years old or more than 150,000 km - was less frequent during the period. Conversely, sourcing of used vehicles from Stellantis doubled compared to the first quarter of 2023, returning to levels close to those reached pre-crisis. Moreover, the return to a more usual functioning of the automotive market, particularly through the improvement in the availability of recent used vehicles via professional channels, has led Aramis Group to evolve its sourcing mix to ensure an ever more attractive offer of quality vehicles at competitive prices for its customers.

Services (5% of revenues)

Services, finally, generated revenues of 26.9 million euros, an increase of +10.9% compared to the first quarter of 2023. The contribution from financing solutions tends to erode in a context of higher interest rates.


Aramis Group is observing encouraging signs in market dynamics.

Although still well below pre-crisis levels (c. -19%5 compared to the first quarter of 2019), the used car market has regained a positive orientation in the period between October and December 2023 (first fiscal quarter of 2024 for Aramis Group), showing a +1% increase compared to the same period in 2022. Furthermore, its way of operating is tending to return to a more usual pattern, with new car production exceeding demand leading to pre-registrations, and increased availability of recent used cars.

Moreover, the selling prices of used vehicles have been trending downwards for several quarters now, with an acceleration noted in the United Kingdom in recent months. Although household budgets remain exposed to macroeconomic uncertainties, the downward price trend is likely to support future demand.

In this context, Aramis Group is approaching 2024 with confidence. The Group reiterates its objectives for the current fiscal year, namely to generate:

  • at constant scope, B2C vehicle sales volumes of at least 100,000 units;
  • an adjusted EBITDA at least twice that achieved in 2023
