LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 4, 2022--

Air Lease Corporation (ALC) (NYSE: AL) announces financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

“We had a good second quarter with higher than expected aircraft deliveries and strong aircraft placements. Aircraft shortages and concerns about future new aircraft delivery delays are causing many airlines to secure lease extensions on existing aircraft, as pandemic recovery is well underway with airlines struggling to meet significant passenger demand,” said John L. Plueger, Chief Executive Officer and President.

“Passenger traffic growth remains on a very strong recovery trajectory, with international volume gaining meaningful momentum so far in 2022 – accordingly, lease placements from our orderbook are stretching further out into the future. Lease rates are strengthening, reflective of diminishing aircraft supply, increasing interest rates, and higher aircraft values,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of the Board.

Adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity have been adjusted to exclude the effects of certain non-cash items, one-time or non-recurring items, such as write-offs of our Russian fleet, that are not expected to continue in the future and certain other items. See note 1 under the Consolidated Statements of Operations included in this earnings release for a discussion of the non-GAAP measures and a reconciliation to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.

Highlights

  • Took delivery of 21 aircraft from our new order pipeline and one new incremental aircraft, representing approximately $1.4 billion in aircraft investments.
  • As of June 30, 2022, we had 392 aircraft in our owned fleet, with a net book value of $23.5 billion, a weighted average age of 4.4 years and a weighted average lease term remaining of 7.1 years.
  • Placed 99% of our contracted orderbook positions on long-term leases for aircraft delivering through the end of 2023 and have placed 58% of our entire orderbook.
  • Ended the quarter with $31.3 billion in committed minimum future rental payments consisting of $15.0 billion in contracted minimum rental payments on the aircraft in our existing fleet and $16.3 billion in minimum future rental payments related to aircraft on order.
  • On August 3, 2022, our board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.185 per share on our outstanding common stock. The dividend will be paid on October 7, 2022 to holders of record of our common stock as of September 12, 2022.

Financial Overview

Our total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2022 increased by 13.4% to $557.7 million as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in total revenues was primarily driven by the continued growth in our fleet and the recognition of cash basis revenue of $8.7 million as compared to $41.6 million of cash basis losses in the three months ended June 30, 2021. This increase was partially offset by the loss of rental revenue from the termination of our leasing activities in Russia during the first quarter of 2022 and lower aircraft sales, trading and other revenue. Lower aircraft sales, trading and other revenue was driven by $34.0 million in revenue recognized in the prior year related to the sale to a third party of certain unsecured claims related to Aeromexico’s insolvency proceedings. Our net income attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $105.9 million, or $0.95 per diluted share compared to $85.6 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2021. We recorded adjusted net income before income taxes during the three months ended June 30, 2022 of $154.5 million or $1.39 per adjusted diluted share, an increase of approximately 22.7% and 26.4% as compared to $125.9 million or $1.10 per adjusted diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. The increase in net income attributable to common stockholders and adjusted net income before income taxes was primarily driven by the increase in revenues as discussed above.

Flight Equipment Portfolio

As of June 30, 2022 the net book value of our fleet increased to $23.5 billion, compared to $22.9 billion as of December 31, 2021. As of June 30, 2022, we owned 392 aircraft in our aircraft portfolio, comprised of 287 narrowbody aircraft and 105 widebody aircraft, and we managed 89 aircraft. The weighted average fleet age and weighted average remaining lease term of our fleet as of June 30, 2022 was 4.4 years and 7.1 years, respectively. We have a globally diversified customer base of 116 airlines in 62 countries.

Any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results to vary materially from our future results, performance or achievements, or those of our industry, expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others:

  • our inability to obtain additional capital on favorable terms, or at all, to acquire aircraft, service our debt obligations and refinance maturing debt obligations;
  • increases in our cost of borrowing or changes in interest rates;
  • our inability to generate sufficient returns on our aircraft investments through strategic acquisition and profitable leasing;
  • the failure of an aircraft or engine manufacturers to meet its delivery obligations to us, including or as a result of technical or other difficulties with aircraft before or after delivery;
  • the extent to which the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the impact of sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union, United Kingdom and others affect our business, including our efforts to pursue insurance claims to recover losses related to aircraft that remain in Russia, the exclusion of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus from the insurance policies that we separately purchase for our owned fleet, and the ability of our lessees to comply with their obligations to maintain insurance policies that cover their operations;
  • the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business;
  • obsolescence of, or changes in overall demand for, our aircraft;
  • changes in the value of, and lease rates for, our aircraft, including as a result of aircraft oversupply, manufacturer production levels, our lessees’ failure to maintain our aircraft, rising inflation, appreciation of the U.S. Dollar, and other factors outside of our control;
  • impaired financial condition and liquidity of our lessees, including due to lessee defaults and reorganizations, bankruptcies or similar proceedings;
  • increased competition from other aircraft lessors;
  • the failure by our lessees to adequately insure our aircraft or fulfill their contractual indemnity obligations to us;
  • increased tariffs and other restrictions on trade;
  • changes in the regulatory environment, including changes in tax laws and environmental regulations;
  • other events affecting our business or the business of our lessees and aircraft manufacturers or their suppliers that are beyond our or their control, such as the threat or realization of epidemic diseases, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, war or armed hostilities between countries or non-state actors; and
  • any additional factors discussed under “Part I — Item 1A. Risk Factors,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, “Part II — Item 1A. Risk Factors,” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and other SEC filings, including future SEC filings.

Adjusted net income before income taxes (defined as net income/(loss) attributable to common stockholders excluding the effects of certain non-cash items, one-time or non-recurring items, such as write-offs of our Russian fleet, that are not expected to continue in the future and certain other items), adjusted pre-tax margin (defined as adjusted net income before income taxes divided by total revenues), adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes (defined as adjusted net income before income taxes divided by the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding) and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity (defined as adjusted net income before income taxes divided by average common shareholders' equity) are measures of operating performance that are not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income/(loss) attributable to common stockholders, pre-tax margin, earnings/(loss) per share, diluted earnings/(loss) per share and pre-tax return on common equity, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity are presented as supplemental disclosure because management believes they provide useful information on our earnings from ongoing operations.

Management and our board of directors use adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance. Management believes these measures are helpful in evaluating the operating performance of our ongoing operations and identifying trends in our performance, because they remove the effects of certain non-cash items, one-time or non-recurring items that are not expected to continue in the future and certain other items from our operating results. Adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity, however, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results or cash flows as reported under GAAP. Adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity do not reflect our cash expenditures or changes in our cash requirements for our working capital needs. In addition, our calculation of adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity may differ from the adjusted net income before income taxes, adjusted pre-tax margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes and adjusted pre-tax return on common equity or analogous calculations of other companies in our industry, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure.
