EasyLease growth this quarter has been very strong across the UAE market and continued to be robust across traditional and new delivery markets.”    

Easy Lease will open local offices in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain before the end of this year, targeting a 10% share by the end of 2023 of the Saudi Arabian market, which currently stands at 36 million deliveries monthly.
