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

DUBLIN, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Net income of $246 million for the second quarter of 2020 and $523 million for the first half of 2020
  • Diluted earnings per share of $1.92 for the second quarter of 2020 and $4.06 for the first half of 2020

Highlights

  • Approximately $12 billion sources of liquidity.
  • 2.2x next 12 months' sources-to-uses coverage ratio, representing $6.4 billion of excess coverage.
  • $3 billion of new financing raised in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Approximately $27 billion of unencumbered assets.
  • Adjusted debt/equity ratio of 2.5 to 1.
  • Secured debt-to-total assets ratio of 23%.
  • New technology aircraft comprise 59% of fleet.
  • Average current lease expires in the fourth quarter of 2027.

"The Covid-19 pandemic continues to create significant challenges for the global aviation industry and for our airline customers," said Aengus Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of AerCap. "In response, we have maintained a record amount of liquidity and strong access to funding. We currently have $12 billion sources of liquidity, which is more than double our cash needs over the next 12 months. Since April, we have raised $3 billion of new funding, and have over $2 billion of additional funding initiatives in progress. With $27 billion of unencumbered assets, a record low leverage ratio of 2.5 to 1 and an unrivalled operating platform, we are well-positioned to weather an extended period of turbulence and support the recovery of the airline industry in the future."

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Net income was $246 million, compared with $331 million for the same period in 2019. Diluted earnings per share was $1.92, compared with $2.42 for the same period in 2019.

  • The decrease in net income was primarily driven by lower basic lease rents and lower net gain on sale of assets.

  • Diluted earnings per share was affected by the same factors as net income and by the repurchase of 11 million shares from April 2019 through June 2020.

Basic lease rents were $948 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $1,077 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily due to lease restructurings, transitions and the impact of airline bankruptcies.

Maintenance rents and other receipts were $224 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $109 million for the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily due to higher maintenance revenue recognized as a result of lease terminations during the second quarter of 2020.

Net gain on sale of assets for the second quarter of 2020 was $10 million, relating to nine aircraft sold for $188 million, compared with $78 million for the same period in 2019, relating to 22 aircraft sold for $502 million. The decrease was primarily due to the lower volume and composition of asset sales.

Other income for the second quarter of 2020 was $15 million, compared with $17 million for the same period in 2019.

Other Expenses

Leasing expenses were $78 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared with $65 million for the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in our provision for expected credit losses, partially offset by a decrease in maintenance rights expense as a result of lower maintenance activity during the period and the lower maintenance rights asset balance. Asset impairment charges were $73 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $18 million recorded for the same period in 2019. Asset impairment charges recorded in the second quarter of 2020 primarily related to lease terminations and were largely offset by maintenance revenue.

Effective Tax Rate

Our effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2020 was 13.5%, compared to 13.0% for the second quarter of 2019. The effective tax rate for the full year 2019 was 12.5%. The effective tax rate is impacted by the source and amount of earnings among our different tax jurisdictions.

Boeing 737 MAX

Following the fatal accidents of two Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, the worldwide fleet of these aircraft was grounded by aviation authorities in March 2019 and production was temporarily suspended by Boeing in January 2020, resulting in ongoing delays in the delivery of our aircraft on order from Boeing. As of June 30, 2020, we had five Boeing 737 MAX aircraft delivered and on lease. It is uncertain when and under what conditions our Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will return to service and when Boeing will resume making deliveries of our Boeing 737 MAX aircraft on order. As a result, we expect to incur future delays on our scheduled Boeing 737 MAX deliveries, and any such future delays are likely to have an impact on our financial results. Certain of our Boeing 737 MAX leases have now been cancelled by our lessees, and additional leases may be cancelled in the future. In cases where lessees have the right to cancel Boeing 737 MAX leases, we have the right to cancel our corresponding orders for delivery of those aircraft. Nevertheless, these lease cancellations may have an adverse effect on our future cash flows and results of operations, which could be material.

In July 2020, we reached agreement with Boeing to restructure our order book for Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, including the cancellation of 15 of our Boeing 737 MAX aircraft on order. Following this cancellation, we have 80 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft on order.

Aircraft Portfolio

As of June 30, 2020, AerCap's portfolio consisted of 1,357 aircraft that were owned, on order or managed, as adjusted to reflect our cancellation of 15 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft orders in in July 2020. The average age of our owned fleet as of June 30, 2020 was 6.4 years (2.7 years for new technology aircraft, 11.7 years for current technology aircraft) and the average remaining contracted lease term was 7.3 years.

Notes Regarding Financial Information Presented in This Press Release

The financial information presented in this press release is not audited.

Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this document may not add up precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures.

The following are definitions of non-GAAP measures used in this press release. We believe these measures may further assist investors in their understanding of our operational performance.

Adjusted debt/equity ratio

This measure is the ratio obtained by dividing adjusted debt by adjusted equity.

  • Adjusted debt means consolidated total debt less cash and cash equivalents, and less a 50% equity credit with respect to certain long-term subordinated debt.
  • Adjusted equity means total equity, plus the 50% equity credit relating to the long-term subordinated debt.

Adjusted debt and adjusted equity are adjusted by the 50% equity credit to reflect the equity nature of those financing arrangements and to provide information that is consistent with definitions under certain of our debt covenants. We believe this measure may further assist investors in their understanding of our capital structure and leverage.

Net interest margin, annualized net spread, annualized net spread less depreciation and amortization and average cost of debt

Net interest margin is calculated as the difference between basic lease rents and interest expense, excluding the impact of the mark-to-market of interest rate caps and swaps. Annualized net spread is net interest margin expressed as a percentage of average lease assets. Annualized net spread less depreciation and amortization is net interest margin less depreciation and amortization, including maintenance rights expense, expressed as a percentage of average lease assets. Average cost of debt is calculated as interest expense, excluding mark-to-market on interest rate caps and swaps, divided by average debt balance. We believe these measures may further assist investors in their understanding of the changes and trends related to the earnings of our leasing activities. These measures reflect the impact from changes in the number of aircraft leased, lease rates and utilization rates, as well as the impact from changes in the amount of debt and interest rates.

Lease assets

Lease assets include flight equipment held for operating leases, flight equipment held for sale, net investment in finance and sales-type leases and maintenance rights assets.
