Aramis Group, the European multi-brand retailer (including, as of earlier this year, CarSupermarket and Motordepot in the UK) which is majority owned by Stellantis, has announced 53% growth in revenues to £1bn. The acquisition of CarSupermarket was cited as the driver of the growth. However, it recorded a £8.2m pre-tax operating loss for the year ended September 2021, partly due to June’s IPO costs.

It has set an EBITDA margin of 1.5% in 2022 and over 3% by 2025.

Described as a “leader in the online sale of used cars”, Aramis delivered 37.4% more refurbished cars compared to 2020. The group has “developed its vehicle trade-in busines from private individuals in all geographies”. More than 50% of its revenues came from outside France. The IPO has given it more than £85m of cash at year-end to support its development – and an undrawn RCF of more than £170m.
