Focus on security and flexibility

Our financial policy is conservative and sustainable. MAHLE Group’s current financing requirements are covered to the largest extent possible by cash flows from operations. In addition, multilateral bank loans and bonds ensure MAHLE Group’s medium- and long-term financing and increase our financial flexibility.

Cornerstones of our financing strategy

  • High equity ratio
  • Strong internal financing
  • Long-term security of our liquidity
  • Diversified financing instruments
  • Reduction of financial risks

These cornerstones are shaped by the MAHLE Group’s ownership structure with one foundation owner. Security and flexibility are at the forefront of our financing activities.

Our Debt Issuance Program (DIP) enables us to reach a wide group of investors, thereby increasing flexibility and independence in medium- and long-term financing. German Private Placement Loans additionally secure the group’s long-term financing.

Short-term financing is supported by ABS (asset backed security) and factoring programs as well as by a syndicated loan.

Furthermore, we have access to the equity market. Our Brazilian subsidiary MAHLE Metal Leve S.A. is listed on the Novo Mercado at the BM&F Bovespa stock exchange in São Paulo. Find out more at:

MAHLE does not have a public rating. Following our conservative group strategy, we prepare our financial statements in accordance with the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB).
