Imperial Holdings is a JSE listed South African-based international group of companies active predominantly in three major areas of mobility: consumer and industrial logistics; vehicle import, distribution, dealerships, retail, rental and aftermarket parts; and vehicle-related financial services.

Imperial employs almost 52 000 people who generate revenues in excess of R100 billion in Africa, Europe, South America, Australia and the United States through five major divisions which operate under separate management structures to enable decentralised entrepreneurial creativity within the group’s clearly-defined strategic, capital, budgetary and governance principles.

Imperial strives for focused value creation and leadership in its chosen markets by allocating capital and resources to those organic and acquisitive growth opportunities that will enhance and be enhanced by the group’s existing assets and capabilities.

Some of Imperial’s strategic choices will be deliberate – the result of prior research and analysis, while others will be emergent – the result of unplanned or unexpected external developments. In both cases strictly defined capital allocation principles will be applied.
