2023 Results: strong performance, substantial strategic progress

Inchcape produced a strong set of results in 2023, with an excellent performance across all regions. The business continues to deliver for its shareholders, with double-digit organic revenue growth, margin progression, earnings per share growth and high levels of cash generation.  


Duncan Tait, Group Chief Executive, FY 2023 video:


Inchcape made substantial strategic progress last year, with a record number of distribution contracts won. These contracts, along with our investment in acquisitions, will continue to support the business as we grow in existing markets by building market share with new and existing OEMs, expand into new markets, and develop our global mobility company partner portfolio to drive growth.  

With our global market leadership, high quality people, our diversified geographic footprint and our digital-led approach, Inchcape is well positioned for the future and we remain confident about the medium to long-term outlook for the Group.
