March 16th edition: Udvar-Hazy: Lessors' 'exceptional' consistency not rewarded in share prices
March 16th 2023: In the latest issue, ‘People that follow airlines frequently don't really dig into the differential between an asset base company versus an operating company’ one of the leasing industry's founders Steven Udvar-Hazy (of ALC) complained yesterday. It’s a regular source of frustration expressed by publicly listed lessors because it fails to recognise the exceptional consistent performance of the aircraft leasing industry as a whole, demonstrated for example during the pandemic: Also: ACG in 10 plane deal with SAS; GE Capital raises $2bn in AerCap share sale on back of strong results; ALC places A350-900s with Air France; Avolon delivers first three of five A320neos to ITA.
