$1.3 billion excess capital between 2015-2017 will give AerCap options
AerCap set out its 2015 financial objectives alongside its results for Q4 and FY 2014 this week and the insights provided by its forward looking observations map out how the lessor sees its business evolving. Its estimated $1.3 billion in excess capital to be generated between 2015 and 2017 could be used to acquire aircraft boosting growth beyond the forecasted 4.5%, or alternatively, to finance a share repurchase programme. This week Aercap CEO Aengus Kelly in a Reuters interview said there was no sign of a looming glut in airliners, and this is consistent with the coalface lessor experiences he reported in an interview with Aviation Finance last month.
