Note:  Non-GAAP items reconciled in the Appendix.

Commenting on the results, Mike Inglese, Aircastle's Chief Financial Officer and Acting CEO, stated, "Amid a strong aircraft financing environment, Aircastle has continued to benefit from our strategic flexibility, solid balance sheet, and our opportunistic investment strategy. We have remained disciplined in the pursuit of acquisitions and are determined to act only where opportunities have appealing risk and return profiles. With our unique ability to provide value-added solutions to customers, we successfully closed $190 million of aircraft acquisitions during the first quarter and secured commitments to close a further $220 million. We also seized the opportunity to sell or commit to sell several additional aircraft on appealing terms, continuing our progress in optimizing the fleet mix.  A number of these aircraft sales are expected to close in the second quarter."

Mr. Inglese added, "We also made significant strides in our efforts to continue strengthening our balance sheet. Notably, we successfully raised $500 million during the first quarter to replace a maturing 6.75% debt financing with highly attractive, seven year unsecured notes at a record low coupon of 4.125%.  This refinancing will generate more than $13 million of annual interest savings."

Mr. Inglese concluded, "In addition to achieving significant improvements to our fleet and our balance sheet, Aircastle also continued to deliver solid financial and operational results. We increased our net income by $6.2 million versus the prior year's first quarter, to $42.4 million, and achieved a solid cash ROE of 12.0%, while maintaining fleet utilization of 98.3%, in line with our historical average. Moving forward, Aircastle is in a strong position to continue expanding our earnings power, enhance our fleet, and provide our investors with an attractive, reliable dividend."

Peter V. Ueberroth, Aircastle's Chairman of the Board, also provided an update on the status of Ron Wainshal's medical leave of absence.  Mr. Ueberroth, speaking on behalf of the Board of Directors, stated, "Ron continues to work hard on his recovery and is making progress; however, we do not expect him to return as CEO during the second quarter."  Mr. Ueberroth continued, "The Board continues to have great faith in Acting CEO Mike Inglese's service in that role, and the depth and capability of the management team at Aircastle."

First Quarter Results

Total revenues were $204.3 million, an increase of $20.6 million, or 11.2% from the previous year. The increase was driven by an $11.6 million increase in lease rental and finance and sales-type lease revenues, and an $11.0 million increase in maintenance revenues.  Rental revenues were higher due to net fleet growth, while maintenance revenues rose primarily due to return compensation from two lessees during the first quarter of 2017.  Total maintenance revenues were $12.3 million in the first quarter of 2017 versus $1.3 million in the prior year. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $193.4 million, up $9.5 million, or 5.2% from the first quarter of 2016, due primarily to higher rental and maintenance revenues of $22.6 million, partially offset by lower gains from aircraft sales of $12.1 million.  We sold twelve aircraft for a gain on sale of $12.8 million during the first quarter of 2016 versus one aircraft sale that was closed during the current year's first quarter.   

Adjusted net income for the quarter was $45.7 million, an increase of $1.6 million versus the prior year.  Higher total rental and maintenance revenues were mostly offset by lower gains from aircraft sales along with higher maintenance, depreciation and other expenses.    

Aviation Assets

During the first quarter of 2017, we acquired eight aircraft for approximately $190 million and had commitments to acquire ten additional aircraft for more than $220 million.  These eighteen aircraft have a weighted average age of approximately 7.9 years and a weighted average remaining lease term of 7.6 years.  Narrow-body aircraft comprise seventeen of the total aircraft acquired.        

As of March 31, 2017, Aircastle owned 200 aircraft having a net book value of $6.6 billion. We also managed thirteen aircraft with a net book value of $682 million on behalf of our joint ventures.

Financing Activity

During the first quarter of 2017, we issued $500 million in unsecured Senior Notes due 2024 bearing a coupon of 4.125%.  On April 17, 2017 we repaid $500 million of maturing, unsecured Senior Notes bearing a coupon of 6.75%.  The associated annual interest expense savings is approximately $13.1 million

We define EBITDA as income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, interest expense, and depreciation and amortization. We use EBITDA to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance, and we believe this non-US GAAP measure is helpful in identifying trends in our performance.

This measure provides an assessment of controllable expenses and affords management the ability to make decisions which are expected to facilitate meeting current financial goals as well as achieving optimal financial performance. It provides an indicator for management to determine if adjustments to current spending decisions are needed.

EBITDA provides us with a measure of operating performance because it assists us in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest charges on our outstanding debt) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Accordingly, this metric measures our financial performance based on operational factors that management can impact in the short-term, namely the cost structure, or expenses, of the organization. EBITDA is one of the metrics used by senior management and the board of directors to review the consolidated financial performance of our business.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA (as defined above) further adjusted to give effect to adjustments required in calculating covenant ratios and compliance as that term is defined in the indenture governing our senior unsecured notes.  Adjusted EBITDA is a material component of these covenants.

Note:  LTM Average Shareholders' Equity is the average of the most recent five quarters period end Shareholders' Equity.  Management believes that the cash return on equity metric ("Cash ROE") when viewed in conjunction  with the Company's results under U.S. GAAP and the above reconciliation, provide useful information about operating and period-over-period performance, and provide additional information that is useful for evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business without regard to periodic reporting impacts related to non-cash revenue and expense items and interest rate derivative accounting, while recognizing the depreciating nature of our assets.

Net Cash Interest Margin = Lease rental yield plus finance lease revenue and collections minus interest on borrowings, net of settlements on interest rate derivatives, and other liabilities  / average NBV of flight equipment for the period calculated on a quarterly basis, annualized.   Based on the growing level of finance and sales-type lease revenue, management revised the calculation of portfolio yield to include our net investment in finance and sales-type leases in the average net book value and to include the interest income and cash collections on our net investment in finance and sales-type leases in lease rentals. 





Management believes that net cash interest margin, when viewed in conjunction with the Company's results under U.S. GAAP and the above reconciliation, provides useful information about the effective deployment of our capital in the context of the yield on our aircraft assets, the utilization of those assets by our lessees, and our ability to borrow efficiently.
