AerCap Holdings N.V. Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter 2020

AerCap reported its first quarter income increased by 18% to $276.8 million, from $234.2 million for the same period in 2019, while also saying it had cancelled some outstanding Boeing MAX deliveries. While basic lease revenue declined 4.1% to just over $1 billion  the driver of better than expected results was higher maintenance rents and sales earnings as the firm appears to be dealing with the impact of COVID 19. During the first quarter the Irish lessor renegotiated its agreed MAX deliveries with Boeing, leading to a number of cancellations which the firm said could increase. AerCap CEO Aengus Kelly said “AerCap entered this crisis in a position of strength, with a strong balance sheet and liquidity position, an attractive aircraft portfolio and a high-quality customer base including many of the world’s leading airlines. Most importantly, we have an unrivalled operating platform with a strong track record of successfully managing through challenging environments. With approximately $11 billion sources of liquidity, over $28 billion of unencumbered assets and a record low leverage ratio of 2.5 to 1, we are well-positioned to weather an extended period of turbulence and support the recovery of the airline industry in the future.”
