>> they also own BCA.
BCA were owned by an American fund but sold out to Haversham Holdings (IIRC) who changed their name to BCA Marketplace. No Hertz name appears in BCA history.

You need to look one level back at Clayton, Dubilier & Rice.

They bought Hertz in 2005.
They bought BCA in 2009 from Montagu.
They divested Hertz in 2013
They divested BCA to Haversham in 2014

And agreed a sale to TDR Capital in 2019, though I'm not sure that it has gone through.

Didn't know that BCA finance the sold cars to dealerships though another division. So dealer buys a car at auction. Doesn't have the cash flow to pay for it. BCA lends the money and gets repaid when the car is sold. They go round checking that the cars are still on the forecourts of course!

A mate's brother was a director at BCA. He was telling me once that when a company wants to lease a lot of cars they give a guaranteed selling price before the purchase is made so the company knows the extent of it's liabilities before the car is bought. Seems sensible
