Aircastle Seeks Acquisitions

Aircastle LTD (NYSE:AYR) seeks acquisitions. "In the bank market, we've successfully expanded our revolver three times to one that is currently $450 million in size to the four-year term which [currently] is one year later than our nearest bond maturity. This bank facility is supported by nine international banks and we'll give us of the flexibility when it comes to funding acquisitions. We've also been very active in the secured bank market raising over $700 million in nine separate secured bank financings. I think that the key take away from this is that we have very good access to both markets and we'll continue to focus on a very integrated acquisition and growth strategy going forward. On the next page, I just wanted to quickly give you a brief pictorial of how we've transformed our debt structure. So from almost 100% secured debt, we moved the capital structure to roughly 40% secured, the balance being unsecured. We also made great strides in building our unencumbered asset base and we're constantly trying to maintain a balance between secured amortizing debt and unsecured bullets which is important. And then the importance is the critical factors trying to maintain the balance and figuring out what the tradeoff is between lower cost, secured debt and the flexibility that comes from unsecured debt. So I think, ultimately, the decision is really driven by what we are buying and reinforcing our integration of acquisition and growth capital strategies. Finally, my colleague mentioned the OTPP joint ventured that we entered into. This JV was formed really as a compliment to acquisition strategy. It's good -- it has a target of a billion dollars in size in high return aircraft assets. Equity is good between us and Teachers' so we put in 30% of the equity, Teachers' will put in 70%, it's to be funded with non-recourse debt and we will be servicing the portfolio. We just closed our -- recently closed our first few investments into that joint venture which consists of two brand new A330s and long-term lease for Garuda. Garuda is Indonesia's national airline. I think the rationale for this JV is that given some additional firepower and shaping large ticket transactions. It helps us with concentration risk and really helps us to be partners with sophisticated long-term minded investor. The takeaways is the JV is really additive to equity and strategy and first and foremost, acquisitions will always be focused at the aircraft's level but obviously the JV gives us an additional arrow in our quiver," said Roy Chandran, Aircastle Limited - Executive Vice President - Capital Markets.
