“I am pleased to report that our Group delivered a strong set of results against last year challenging geopolitical backdrop. Our unique proactive sourcing technology allowed us to buy 84% of all cars directly from private individuals and one time sellers. Importantly, 65% and 34% of our cars were sold with insurance and financing products, respectively. Cross-border selling is becoming increasingly important to our business model and in 2022 we sold 12% of our cars in a country different from where they were sourced. Our environmental impact remains a key focus of how we do business. We have increased the sales of hybrids and EV and every 50th car we sold in 2022 was either a hybrid or EV.” says Karolína Topolová, CEO of AURES.
