The subsidiary’s profit before tax in 2019 amounted to PLN 33.3 million compared with PLN 364.4 million a year before. The profit before tax generated in 2019 originated mainly from the core activity of the subsidiary in scope of financial intermediation.

The value of contracts executed by mLeasing in 2019 amounted to PLN 5.3 million compared with PLN 6.1 billion in 2018, which represents a decrease by 13.1% year on year. Sales deterioration in 2019 originated mainly from decline in the vehicles sector, observed on the whole leasing market. Its primary reason was the high reference base, meaning bigger value of transactions in 2018. It was partially justified by changing legal provisions in scope of leasing which took place in 2018. The value of contracts regarding movables concluded in 2019 amounted to PLN 5.0 billion compared with PLN 6.0 billion a year before (i.e. -16.1% year on year), while the value of contracts concerning real estate stood at PLN 0.3 billion compared with PLN 0.1 billion in 2018 (i.e. +127.1% year on year).
