NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and other publicly available documents may contain or incorporate statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Those statements appear in a number of places in this Form 10-Q and include statements regarding, among other matters, the state of the airline industry, including the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the impact of sanctions imposed on Russia, our access to the capital markets, the impact of lease deferrals and other accommodations, aircraft delivery delays and other factors affecting our financial condition or results of operations. Words such as “can,” “could,” “may,” “predicts,” “potential,” “will,” “projects,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates” and “should,” and variations of these words and similar expressions, are used in many cases to identify these forward-looking statements. 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 manufacturer 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;

Note 1.    Company Background and Overview

Air Lease Corporation (the “Company”, “ALC”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is a leading aircraft leasing company that was founded by aircraft leasing industry pioneer, Steven F. Udvar-Házy. The Company is principally engaged in purchasing the most modern, fuel-efficient, new technology commercial jet aircraft directly from aircraft manufacturers, such as The Boeing Company (“Boeing”) and Airbus S.A.S. (“Airbus”). The Company leases these aircraft to airlines throughout the world with the intention to generate attractive returns on equity. As of June 30, 2022, the Company owned 392 aircraft, managed 89 aircraft and had 430 aircraft on order with aircraft manufacturers. In addition to its leasing activities, the Company sells aircraft from its fleet to third parties, including other leasing companies, financial services companies, airlines and other investors. The Company also provides fleet management services to investors and owners of aircraft portfolios for a management fee.

Note 2.    Basis of Preparation and Critical Accounting Policies

The Company consolidates financial statements of all entities in which the Company has a controlling financial interest, including the accounts of any Variable Interest Entity in which the Company has a controlling financial interest and for which it is the primary beneficiary. All material intercompany balances are eliminated in consolidation. The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements.

The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements include all adjustments, consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments, which are in the opinion of management necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows at June 30, 2022, and for all periods presented. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results expected for the year ending December 31, 2022. These financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made in the prior year’s consolidated financial statements to conform to the classifications in 2022.

Senior unsecured notes (including Medium-Term Note Program)

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had $17.7 billion in senior unsecured notes outstanding. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $16.9 billion in senior unsecured notes outstanding.

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company issued $1.5 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes comprised of (i) $750.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2.20% Medium-Term Notes due 2027, and (ii) $750.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2.875% Medium-Term Notes due 2032.

Unsecured revolving credit facility

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had $520.0 million outstanding under its unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). As of December 31, 2021, the Company did not have any amounts outstanding under its Revolving Credit Facility. Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility are used to finance the Company’s working capital needs in the ordinary course of business and for other general corporate purposes.

In April 2022, the Company amended and extended its Revolving Credit Facility through an amendment that, among other things, extended the final maturity date from May 5, 2025 to May 5, 2026, increased the total revolving commitments to approximately $7.0 billion as of May 5, 2022 and replaced LIBOR with Term SOFR as the benchmark interest rate and made certain conforming changes related thereto. As of June 30, 2022, borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility accrued interest at Adjusted Term SOFR (as defined in the Revolving Credit Facility) plus a margin of 1.05% per year. The Company is required to pay a facility fee of 0.20% per year in respect of total commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility. Interest rate and facility fees are subject to increases or decreases based on declines or improvements in the credit ratings for the Company’s debt.

In June 2022, the Company increased the aggregate facility capacity by an additional $122.5 million and also extended the maturity of $125.0 million in commitments to May 5, 2026. As of August 4, 2022, the Company had total revolving commitments of approximately $7.1 billion. Lenders held revolving commitments totaling approximately $6.7 billion that mature on May 5, 2026, commitments totaling $32.5 million that mature on May 5, 2025 and commitments totaling $375.0 million that mature on May 5, 2023.

Other debt financings

From time to time, the Company enters into other debt financings such as unsecured term financings and secured term financings, including export credit. As of June 30, 2022, the outstanding balance on other debt financings was $325.5 million and the Company had pledged three aircraft as collateral with a net book value of $217.1 million. As of December 31, 2021, the outstanding balance on other debt financings was $312.0 million and the Company had pledged three aircraft as collateral with a net book value of $222.2 million.

Write-off of Russian fleet

In response to the sanctions against certain industry sectors and parties in Russia, in March 2022, the Company terminated all of its leasing activities in Russia, including 24 aircraft in its owned fleet. As of August 4, 2022, 21 aircraft previously included in the Company’s owned fleet remain in Russia. The operators of these aircraft have continued to fly most of the aircraft notwithstanding the termination of leasing activities and the Company’s repeated demands for the return of its assets. While the Company maintains title to the aircraft, the Company has determined that it is unlikely it will regain possession of the aircraft that have not been returned and that remain in Russia. As such, during the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recognized a loss from asset write-offs of its interests in owned aircraft that remain in Russia, totaling approximately $791.0 million. The Company did not have any losses from asset write-offs for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The 21 aircraft that remain in Russia were removed from the Company’s owned fleet count as of March 31, 2022. In June 2022, the Company submitted insurance claims to its insurers to recover its losses relating to these aircraft and is vigorously pursuing all available insurance claims. Collection, timing and amounts of any insurance recoveries is uncertain at this time.

Note 5.    Commitments and Contingencies

Aircraft Acquisition

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had commitments to purchase 430 aircraft from Boeing and Airbus for delivery through 2028, with an estimated aggregate commitment of $27.6 billion.

The table is subject to change based on Airbus and Boeing delivery delays. As noted below, the Company expects delivery delays for some aircraft in its orderbook. The Company remains in discussions with Boeing and Airbus to determine the extent and duration of delivery delays; however, the Company is not yet able to determine the full impact of these delays.

(1) The Company’s Airbus A320/321neo aircraft orders include 26 long-range variants and 49 extra long-range variants.
(2) The table above reflects Airbus and Boeing aircraft delivery delays based on contractual documentation.

Pursuant to the Company’s purchase agreements with Boeing and Airbus, the Company agrees to contractual delivery dates for each aircraft ordered. These dates can change for a variety of reasons, however for the last several years, manufacturing delays have significantly impacted the planned purchases of the Company’s aircraft on order with Boeing and Airbus. The Company is currently experiencing delivery delays with both Boeing and Airbus aircraft. However, the most significant delivery delays pertain to the Company’s aircraft orders for Boeing 787 aircraft.

During 2020, Boeing began to experience manufacturing issues on its 787 aircraft, which resulted in significant aircraft delivery delays. Boeing halted 787 deliveries in May 2021 and has not indicated when they will resume. The Company has not received any 787s since the halting of the deliveries by Boeing. It is the Company’s understanding that, in July 2022, the FAA approved Boeing’s plan to inspect and repair 787 aircraft, which will allow deliveries to resume. However, the pace and the timing of deliveries of the aircraft for the remainder of this year and potentially beyond still remains uncertain.

The aircraft purchase commitments discussed above could also be impacted by cancellations. The Company’s purchase agreements with Boeing and Airbus generally provide each of the Company and the manufacturers with cancellation rights for delivery delays starting at one year after the original contractual delivery date, regardless of cause. In addition, the Company’s lease agreements generally provide each of the Company and the lessee with cancellation rights related to certain aircraft delivery delays that typically parallel the cancellation rights in the Company’s purchase agreements.

Commitments for the acquisition of these aircraft, calculated at an estimated aggregate purchase price (including adjustments for anticipated inflation) of approximately $27.6 billion as of June 30, 2022, are as follows:


Years ending December 31,
2022 $ 3,082,573 
2023 6,057,223

2026 3,641,767 
Thereafter 4,433,109 
Total $ 27,625,148 

The Company has made non-refundable deposits on flight equipment purchases of $1.6 billion and $1.5 billion as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. If the Company is unable to satisfy its purchase commitments, the Company may be forced to forfeit its deposits and may also be exposed to breach of contract claims by its lessees as well as the manufacturers.

Note 7. Earnings/(Loss) Per Share

Basic earnings/(loss) per share is computed by dividing net income/(loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that would occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock; however, potential common equivalent shares are excluded if the effect of including these shares would be anti-dilutive. The Company’s two classes of common stock, Class A and Class B non-voting, have equal rights to dividends and income, and therefore, basic and diluted earnings per share are the same for each class of common stock. As of June 30, 2022, the Company did not have any Class B non-voting common stock outstanding.    

Diluted earnings per share takes into account the potential conversion of stock options, restricted stock units, and warrants using the treasury stock method and convertible notes using the if-converted method. Since the Company was in a loss position for the six months ended June 30, 2022, diluted net loss per share is the same as basic net loss per share for the period as the inclusion of all potential common shares outstanding would have been anti-dilutive. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company excluded 301,279 potentially dilutive securities, whose effect would have been anti-dilutive, from the computation of diluted earnings per share. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company did not exclude any potentially dilutive securities, whose effect would have been anti-dilutive, from the computation of diluted earnings per share. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company did not exclude any potentially dilutive securities, whose effect would have been anti-dilutive, from the computation of diluted earnings per share. The Company excluded 978,036 and 1,085,311 shares related to restricted stock units for which the performance metric had yet to be achieved as of June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Note 8.    Fair Value Measurements

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring and Non-recurring Basis

The Company has a cross-currency swap related to its Canadian dollar Medium-Term Notes which were issued in December 2019. The fair value of the swap as a foreign currency exchange derivative is categorized as a Level 2 measurement in the fair value hierarchy and is measured on a recurring basis. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the estimated fair value of the foreign currency exchange derivative asset was $9.4 million and $14.1 million, respectively.

Financial Instruments Not Measured at Fair Values

The fair value of debt financing is estimated based on the quoted market prices for the same or similar issues, or on the current rates offered to the Company for debt of the same remaining maturities, which would be categorized as a Level 2 measurement in the fair value hierarchy. The estimated fair value of debt financing as of June 30, 2022 was $17.2 billion compared to a book value of $18.5 billion. The estimated fair value of debt financing as of December 31, 2021 was $17.6 billion compared to a book value of $17.2 billion.

The following financial instruments are not measured at fair value on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets at June 30, 2022, but require disclosure of their fair values: cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash. The estimated fair value of such instruments at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 approximates their carrying value as reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The fair value of all these instruments would be categorized as Level 1 in the fair value hierarchy.

Such repurchases completed the repurchase of the entire $150.0 million of outstanding shares authorized under the Company’s stock repurchase program. The Company completed the share repurchase program in April 2022.

Note 10.     Stock-based Compensation

On May 7, 2014, the stockholders of the Company approved the Air Lease Corporation 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2014 Plan”). Upon approval of the 2014 Plan, no new awards may be granted under the Amended and Restated 2010 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2010 Plan”). As of June 30, 2022, the number of stock options (“Stock Options”) and restricted stock units (“RSUs”) authorized under the 2014 Plan is approximately 4,216,707. The Company has issued RSUs with four different vesting criteria: those RSUs that vest based on the attainment of book-value goals, those RSUs that vest based on the attainment of Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) goals, time based RSUs that vest ratably over a time period of three years and RSUs that cliff vest at the end of a one or two year period.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had no outstanding Stock Options and no unrecognized compensation costs related to outstanding Stock Options. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, there were no stock-based compensation expenses related to Stock Options.

The Company recorded $6.6 million and $6.7 million of stock-based compensation expense related to RSUs for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Air Lease Corporation and Subsidiaries
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)




The Company recorded $4.0 million and $12.1 million of stock-based compensation expense related to RSUs for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The decrease in stock-based compensation relates to reductions in the underlying vesting estimates of certain book value RSUs as the performance criteria are no longer considered probable of being achieved.

Restricted Stock Units

Compensation cost for RSUs is measured at the grant date based on fair value and recognized over the vesting period. The fair value of book value and time based RSUs is determined based on the closing market price of the Company’s Class A common stock on the date of grant, while the fair value of RSUs that vest based on the attainment of Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) goals is determined at the grant date using a Monte Carlo simulation model. Included in the Monte Carlo simulation model were certain assumptions regarding a number of highly complex and subjective variables, such as expected volatility, risk-free interest rate and expected dividends. To appropriately value the award, the risk-free interest rate is estimated for the time period from the valuation date until the vesting date and the historical volatilities were estimated based on a historical timeframe equal to the time from the valuation date until the end date of the performance period.

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company granted 652,016 RSUs of which 110,237 are TSR RSUs and 220,437 are book value RSUs. The following table summarizes the activities for the Company’s unvested RSUs for the six months ended June 30, 2022:
Unvested Restricted Stock Units

As of June 30, 2022, there was $40.3 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested stock-based payments granted to employees. Total unrecognized compensation expense will be recognized over a weighted-average remaining period of 2.10 years.

Note 11. Aircraft Under Management

As of June 30, 2022, the Company managed 89 aircraft across three aircraft management platforms. The Company managed 48 aircraft through its Thunderbolt platform, 35 aircraft through the Blackbird investment funds and six on behalf of other financial institutions.

The Company managed 35 aircraft on behalf of third-party investors, through two investment funds, Blackbird I and Blackbird II. These funds invest in commercial jet aircraft and lease them to airlines throughout the world. The Company provides management services to these funds for a fee. As of June 30, 2022, the Company's non-controlling interests in each fund were 9.5% and are accounted for under the equity method of accounting. The Company’s investments in these funds aggregated $64.2 million and $73.2 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, and are included in Other assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Additionally, the Company continues to manage aircraft that it sells through its Thunderbolt platform. The Thunderbolt platform facilitates the sale of mid-life aircraft to investors while allowing the Company to continue the management of these aircraft for a fee. As of June 30, 2022, the Company managed 48 aircraft across three separate transactions. The Company has non-controlling interests in two of these entities of approximately 5.0%, which are accounted for under the cost method of accounting. The Company’s total investment in aircraft sold through its Thunderbolt platform was $8.8 million and $9.3 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively and is included in Other assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

In response to the sanctions against certain industry sectors and parties in Russia, in March 2022 the Company terminated all of its leasing activities in Russia. Eight leases for aircraft in the Company’s managed fleet were also terminated. As of August 4, 2022, six aircraft previously included in the Company’s managed fleet remain in Russia. While the applicable managed platform maintains title to the aircraft, the Company has determined that it is unlikely they will regain possession of the aircraft that have not been returned and that remain in Russia. As a result, during the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recognized asset write-offs of $11.4 million related to its investments in the managed platforms that own such aircraft. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company did not recognize any asset write-offs related to its investments in the managed platforms. The six aircraft that remain in Russia were removed from the Company’s managed fleet count as of March 31, 2022.

Note 12. Net Investment in Sales-type Leases

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had five A320-200 aircraft on lease to an airline with terms that meet the criteria of being classified as a sales-type lease.

Net investment in sales-type leases was included in Other assets in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets based on the present value of fixed payments under the contract and the residual value of the underlying asset, discounted at the rate implicit in the lease. The Company’s investment in sales-type leases consisted of the following (in thousands):

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had six aircraft, with a carrying value of $220.9 million, which were held for sale and included in Flight equipment subject to operating leases on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company expects the sale of all six aircraft to be completed in 2022. The Company ceases recognition of depreciation expense once an aircraft is classified as held for sale. As of December 31, 2021, the Company did not have any flight equipment classified as held for sale.

ITEM 2.    MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Overview

Air Lease Corporation (the “Company”, “ALC”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is a leading aircraft leasing company that was founded by aircraft leasing industry pioneer, Steven F. Udvar-Házy. We are principally engaged in purchasing the most modern, fuel-efficient new technology commercial jet aircraft directly from aircraft manufacturers, such as The Boeing Company (“Boeing”) and Airbus S.A.S. (“Airbus”), and leasing those aircraft to airlines throughout the world with the intention to generate attractive returns on equity. In addition to our leasing activities, we sell aircraft from our fleet to third-parties, including other leasing companies, financial services companies, airlines and other investors. We also provide fleet management services to investors and owners of aircraft portfolios for a management fee. Our operating performance is driven by the growth of our fleet, the terms of our leases, the interest rates on our debt, and the aggregate amount of our indebtedness, supplemented by gains from aircraft sales and our management fees.

Second Quarter Overview

As of June 30, 2022, the net book value of our fleet was $23.5 billion, compared to $22.9 billion as of December 31, 2021. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we purchased and took delivery of 21 aircraft from our new order pipeline and one new incremental aircraft, ending the period with a total of 392 aircraft in our owned aircraft portfolio. The weighted average age of our fleet was 4.4 years and the weighted average lease term remaining was 7.1 years as of June 30, 2022. Our managed fleet was 89 aircraft as of June 30, 2022 as compared to a managed fleet of 92 aircraft as of December 31, 2021. We have a globally diversified customer base comprised of 116 airlines in 62 countries as of June 30, 2022. As of August 4, 2022, all aircraft in our fleet, except for one aircraft, were subject to lease agreements or letters of intent.

As of June 30, 2022, we had commitments to purchase 430 aircraft from Boeing and Airbus for delivery through 2028, with an estimated aggregate commitment of $27.6 billion. We have placed approximately 99% of our committed orderbook on long-term leases for aircraft delivering through the end of 2023 and have placed 58% of our entire orderbook. We ended the second quarter of 2022 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 which will deliver between 2022 through 2027.

We typically finance the purchase of aircraft and our business with available cash balances, internally generated funds, including through aircraft sales, preferred stock issuances, and debt financings. We ended the second quarter of 2022 with an aggregate borrowing capacity under our revolving credit facility of $6.6 billion and total liquidity of $7.6 billion. As of June 30, 2022, we had total debt outstanding of $18.5 billion, of which 92.4% was at a fixed rate and 99.3% was unsecured. As of June 30, 2022, our composite cost of funds raised through debt financings was 2.81%.

Our total revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 increased by 13.4% to $557.7 million, compared to the quarter 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 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.

During the second quarter of 2022, the industry continued to recover from the impact of COVID-19. As of June 30, 2022, we had $182.1 million in outstanding deferred rentals due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as compared to $203.2 million as of December 31, 2021. Our collection rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 were 94.7% and 96.0%, respectively. Our collection rate is defined as the sum of cash collected from lease rentals and maintenance reserves, including cash recovered from outstanding receivables from previous periods, as a percentage of the total contracted receivables due during the period and is calculated after giving effect to lease deferral arrangements made as of June 30, 2022. Our lease utilization rate for the three and six
20

months ended June 30, 2022 were 99.6% and 99.7%, respectively. Lease utilization rate is calculated based on the number of days each aircraft was subject to a lease or letter of intent during the period, weighted by the net book value of the aircraft.

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we recorded net income attributable to shareholders of $105.9 million, or $0.95 per diluted share, as compared to net income attributable to shareholders of $85.6 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, in the prior period. The increase in our net income attributable to shareholders is primarily due to the continued growth of our fleet and the increase in revenues as discussed above.

We recorded adjusted net income before income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2022 of $154.5 million or $1.39 per diluted share. This increased by approximately 22.7% over the prior period results of $125.9 million or $1.10 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2021. This was due to the continued growth of our fleet and the increase in revenues as discussed above. Adjusted net income before income taxes and adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes are measures of financial and operational performance that are not defined by U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). See “Results of Operations” below for a discussion of adjusted net income before income taxes and adjusted diluted earnings per share before income taxes as non-GAAP measures and a reconciliation of these measures to net income attributable to common stockholders.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine Conflict

In connection with the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the United States, European Union, United Kingdom and others have imposed, and may continue to impose, economic sanctions and export controls against certain industry sectors and parties in Russia. These sanctions include closures of airspace for aircraft operated by Russian controlled entities, bans on the leasing or sale of aircraft to Russian controlled entities, bans on the export and re-export of aircraft and aircraft components to Russian controlled entities or for use in Russia, and corresponding prohibitions on providing technical assistance, brokering services, insurance and reinsurance, as well as financing or financial assistance.

In response to the sanctions, in March 2022 we terminated all of our leasing activities in Russia, consisting of 24 aircraft in our owned fleet, eight aircraft in our managed fleet and the leasing activity relating to 29 aircraft that have not yet delivered from our orderbook, for which the majority have been subsequently placed. In the first quarter of 2022, we also canceled five aircraft in our orderbook that were slated for delivery in Russia. As of August 4, 2022, 21 aircraft previously included in our owned fleet and six aircraft previously included in our managed fleet still remain in Russia. The operators of these aircraft have continued to fly most of these aircraft notwithstanding the termination of leasing activities and repeated demands for the return of the assets. The 21 aircraft previously included in our owned fleet provided approximately $18.0 million per quarter in rental revenue. Our future revenues and cash flows have been impacted by the termination of our leasing activities of the aircraft in Russia.

While we or the applicable managed platform maintain title to the aircraft, we determined that it is unlikely we or they will regain possession of the aircraft that have not been returned and that remain in Russia. As a result, we recorded a write-off of our interests in our owned and managed aircraft that remain in Russia, totaling approximately $802.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The 21 aircraft that remain in Russia were removed from our owned fleet as of March 31, 2022. In June 2022, we submitted insurance claims to our insurers to recover our losses relating to these aircraft and are vigorously pursuing all available insurance claims. In addition, we intend to pursue all available legal claims related to our aircraft that remain in Russia, but the timing and amount of any recoveries under any insurance or legal claims are uncertain at this time. During the second quarter of 2022, we renewed our insurance policies which resulted in an annualized premium increase of approximately $16.0 million. These policies apply worldwide with exclusions for Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Our leases require our lessees to carry comprehensive liability insurance and aircraft all-risk insurance. As a result, lessees operating in Russia, Ukraine or Belarus are required to have insurance covering those regions or they are not permitted under the terms of their lease to operate in such countries.

For more information regarding the risks we face relating to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, see “Part II — Item 1A. Risk Factors,” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Aircraft Delivery Delays

Pursuant to our purchase agreements with Boeing and Airbus, we agree to contractual delivery dates for each aircraft ordered. These dates can change for a variety of reasons, however for the last several years, manufacturing delays have significantly impacted the planned purchases of our aircraft on order with Boeing and Airbus. We are currently experiencing delivery delays with both Boeing and Airbus aircraft. However, the most significant delivery delays pertain to our aircraft orders for Boeing 787 aircraft.

During 2020, Boeing began to experience manufacturing issues on its 787 aircraft, which resulted in significant aircraft delivery delays. Boeing halted 787 deliveries in May 2021 and has not indicated when they will resume. We have not received any 787s since the halting of the deliveries by Boeing. It is our understanding that, in July 2022, the FAA approved Boeing’s plan to inspect and repair 787 aircraft, which will allow deliveries to resume. However, the pace and the timing of deliveries of the aircraft for the remainder of this year and potentially beyond still remains uncertain.

Our purchase agreements with Boeing and Airbus generally provide each of us and the manufacturers with cancellation rights for delivery delays starting at one year after the original contractual delivery date, regardless of cause. In addition, our lease agreements generally provide each of us and the lessees with cancellation rights related to certain aircraft delivery delays that typically parallel the cancellation rights in our purchase agreements.

We believe that the majority of our 787 aircraft deliveries in our orderbook will be delayed, which could give us, our airline customers and Boeing the right to cancel these aircraft commitments.

As a result of continued manufacturing delays as discussed above, our aircraft delivery schedule could continue to be subject to material changes and delivery delays could extend beyond 2022.

The following table, which is subject to change based on Airbus and Boeing delivery delays, shows the number of new aircraft scheduled to be delivered as of June 30, 2022, along with the lease placements of such aircraft as of August 4, 2022. As noted above, we expect delivery delays for all aircraft deliveries in our orderbook. We remain in discussions with Boeing and Airbus to determine the extent and duration of delivery delays, but we are not yet able to determine the full impact of these delays.

Aircraft Industry and Sources of Revenues

Our revenues are principally derived from operating leases with airlines throughout the world. As of June 30, 2022, we had a globally diversified customer base of 116 airlines in 62 different countries, with over 95% of our business revenues from airlines domiciled outside of the U.S., and we anticipate that most of our revenues in the future will be generated from foreign customers.

Performance of the commercial airline industry is linked to global economic health and development. Despite the disruption caused to the commercial airline industry by the COVID-19 pandemic since early 2020, global air travel continues to recover and has accelerated in most markets. The International Air Transport Association (“IATA”) reported that passenger traffic was up 76% in the month of June 2022 relative to the same month in the prior year, benefiting from a significant acceleration in international traffic and strong continued expansion of domestic traffic in most markets. International traffic in June of 2022 rose 230% relative to the prior year, though it remains 35% lower than the same month in 2019. Global domestic passenger traffic in June 2022 rose 5% relative to the prior year, with all major markets rising except China domestic given residual impact of COVID-related travel constraints, and
24

was 19% lower than the same month in 2019. According to IATA, several international routes are now exceeding 2019 traffic levels or are expected to exceed those levels near-term, several other domestic markets are quickly approaching 2019 levels. China domestic traffic is also recently showing signs of stabilization. We believe COVID-19 vaccination progress, therapeutic treatments and the easing of travel restrictions will continue to support the recovery of air passenger traffic and the commercial airline industry.

Currently, we are experiencing increased demand for our aircraft as global air traffic recovers from the pandemic. We believe supply chain challenges will further exacerbate what was already shaping up to be a shortage of commercial aircraft. The increased demand for our aircraft, when combined with rising interest rates and inflation, is providing a catalyst for rising lease rates. Lease rates can be influenced by several factors including impacts of changes in the competitive landscape of the aircraft leasing industry, supply chain disruptions, evolving international trade matters, epidemic diseases and geopolitical events and therefore, are difficult to project or forecast.

Our airline customers are facing higher operating costs as a result of rising fuel costs, interest rates and inflation, ongoing labor shortages and disputes, as well as delays and cancellations caused by the global air traffic control system and airports, although the magnitude of underlying pre-pandemic demand returning and still-to-return to the market is offering a strong counterbalance to these increased costs. Many of these customers are also exposed to currency risk related to the appreciation of the U.S. dollar because they earn revenues in their local currencies while a significant portion of their liabilities and expenses are denominated in U.S. dollars, including their lease payments to us. If our airline customers are not able to effectively manage their operating costs and currency risk, it could impact our financial results and cash flows.

We continue to expect more airline reorganizations, liquidations, or other forms of bankruptcies, which may include some of our aircraft customers and result in the early return of aircraft or changes in our lease terms. As of the date of this filing, we had eight aircraft across three airlines which were subject to various forms of insolvency proceedings.

We believe the aircraft leasing industry has remained resilient over time across a variety of global economic conditions and remain optimistic about the long-term fundamentals of our business. We expect the aviation industry to continue to recover from the impact of COVID-19.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Overview

We ended the second quarter of 2022 with available liquidity of $7.6 billion which is comprised of unrestricted cash of $1.0 billion and undrawn balances under our unsecured revolving credit facility of $6.6 billion. We finance the purchase of aircraft and our business operations using available cash balances, internally generated funds, including through aircraft sales and trading activity, and an array of financing products. We aim to maintain investment-grade credit metrics and focus our debt financing strategy on funding our business on an unsecured basis with primarily fixed-rate debt from public bond offerings. Unsecured financing provides us with operational flexibility when selling or transitioning aircraft from one airline to another. We also have the ability to seek debt financing secured by our assets, as well as financings supported through the Export-Import Bank of the United States and other export credit agencies for future aircraft deliveries. We have also issued preferred stock with a total aggregate stated value of $850.0 million. Our access to a variety of financing alternatives including unsecured public bonds, private capital, bank debt, secured financings and preferred stock issuances serves as a key advantage in managing our liquidity. Aircraft delivery delays as a product of manufacturer delays are expected to further reduce our aircraft investment and debt financing needs for the next six to twelve months and potentially beyond.

We have a balanced approach to capital allocation based on the following priorities, ranked in order of importance: first, investing in modern, in-demand aircraft to profitably grow our core aircraft leasing business while maintaining strong fleet metrics and creating sustainable long-term shareholder value; second, maintaining our investment grade balance sheet utilizing unsecured debt as our primary form of financing; and finally, in lockstep with the aforementioned priorities, returning excess cash to shareholders through our dividend policy as well as regular evaluation of share repurchases, as appropriate.

We ended the second quarter of 2022 with total debt outstanding of $18.5 billion compared to $17.2 billion as of December 31, 2021. Our unsecured debt outstanding increased to $18.4 billion as of June 30, 2022 from $17.1 billion as of December 31, 2021. Our unsecured debt as a percentage of total debt was 99.3% and 99.2% as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

Material Cash Sources and Requirements

We believe that we have sufficient liquidity from available cash balances, cash generated from ongoing operations, available borrowings under our unsecured revolving credit facility and general ability to access the capital markets for opportunistic public bond offerings to satisfy the operating requirements of our business through at least the next 12 months. Our long-term debt financing strategy is focused on continuing to raise unsecured debt in the global bank and investment grade capital markets. Our material cash sources include:

Unrestricted cash: We ended the second quarter of 2022 with $1.0 billion in unrestricted cash.
Lease cash flows: We ended the second quarter of 2022 with $31.3 billion in committed minimum future rental payments comprised 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 which will deliver between 2022 through 2027. These rental payments are a primary driver of our short and long-term operating-cash-flow. As of June 30, 2022, our minimum future rentals on non-cancellable operating leases for the next 12 months was $2.2 billion. For further detail on our minimum future rentals for the remainder of 2022 and thereafter, see “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” under “Item 1. Financial Statements” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Unsecured revolving credit facility: As of August 4, 2022, our $7.1 billion revolving credit facility is syndicated across 53 financial institutions from various regions of the world, diversifying our reliance on any individual lending institution. The final maturity for the facility is May 2026. The facility contains standard investment grade covenants and does not condition our ability to borrow on the lack of a material adverse effect to us or the general economy.
Senior unsecured bonds: We are a frequent issuer in the investment grade capital markets, opportunistically issuing unsecured bonds, primarily through our Medium-Term Note Program at attractive cost of funds. In 2022, we have issued $1.5 billion of Medium-Term Notes with a weighted average interest rate of 2.54% and we expect to have continued access to the investment grade bond market in the future, although we anticipate interest rates for issuances in the near term will increase from those available in recent years.
Aircraft sales: Proceeds from the sale of aircraft help supplement our liquidity position. We are targeting to sell up to $750.0 million in aircraft for 2022, subject to any further significant delivery delays we might experience during the second half of this year.
Other sources: In addition to the above, we generate liquidity through other sources of debt financing (including unsecured and secured bank term loans), issuances of preferred stock and cash received from security deposits and maintenance reserves from our lease agreements.
Our material cash requirements are primarily for the purchase of aircraft and debt service payments, along with our general operating expenses. The amount of our cash requirements depends on a variety of factors, including, the ability of aircraft manufacturers to meet their contractual delivery obligations to us, the ability of our lessees to meet their contractual obligations with us, the timing of aircraft sales from our fleet, the timing and amount of our debt service obligations, potential acquisitions, and the general economic environment in which we operate.

While we have experienced a low interest rate environment for many years, substantial improvement in the labor markets, higher inflation and geopolitical events have led to an increase in borrowing rates. We expect short-term interest rates to continue to rise. A higher interest rate environment may adversely affect our businesses through increased borrowing costs, although this impact may be offset in whole or in part if increased interest rates lead to an increase in leasing activity by our airline customers.

(1) Future interest payments on floating rate debt are estimated using floating rates in effect at June 30, 2022.
(2) Purchase commitments reflect future Boeing and Airbus aircraft deliveries based on information currently available to us based on contractual documentation.

The above table does not include any tax payments we may pay nor any dividends we may pay on our preferred stock or common stock. Based on our expected cash sources and requirements for the remainder of 2022, we believe that we have sufficient liquidity to meet our cash requirements for aircraft deliveries and debt service obligations. We expect that we will continue to access the capital markets for public bond offerings over the next 12 months.

The actual delivery dates of the aircraft in our commitments table and expected time for payment of such aircraft may differ from our estimates and could be further impacted by the pace at which Boeing and Airbus can deliver aircraft, among other factors. We expect to make approximately $3.5 billion to $4.5 billion in aircraft investments in 2022, which reflects a high degree of uncertainty around the Boeing 787 program as well as other potential production delays.
As of June 30, 2022, we were in compliance in all material respects with the covenants contained in our debt agreements. While a ratings downgrade would not result in a default under any of our debt agreements, it could adversely affect our ability to issue debt and obtain new financings, or renew existing financings, and it would increase the costs of certain financings. Our liquidity plans are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including those described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and other SEC filings.

Cash Flows

Our cash flows provided by operating activities increased by 14.3% or $86.2 million, to $688.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $602.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Our cash flow provided by operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2022 increased due to the continued growth of our fleet and an increase in our cash collections as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Our cash flow used in investing activities was $2.0 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and $1.4 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2021, which resulted primarily from the purchase of aircraft. Our cash flow provided by financing activities was $1.3 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $273.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase is primarily due to the issuance of debt, net of debt repayments, related in part to the acquisition of aircraft investments.

Senior unsecured notes (including Medium-Term Note Program)

As of June 30, 2022, we had $17.7 billion in senior unsecured notes outstanding. As of December 31, 2021, we had $16.9 billion in senior unsecured notes outstanding.

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, we issued $1.5 billion in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes comprised of (i) $750.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2.20% Medium-Term Notes due 2027, and (ii) $750.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2.875% Medium-Term Notes due 2032.

For more information regarding our senior unsecured notes outstanding, see Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part III, Item 15 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Unsecured revolving credit facility

As of June 30, 2022, we had $520.0 million outstanding under our unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). As of December 31, 2021, we did not have any amounts outstanding under our Revolving Credit Facility. Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility are used to finance our working capital needs in the ordinary course of business and for other general corporate purposes.

In April 2022, we amended and extended our Revolving Credit Facility through an amendment that, among other things, extended the final maturity date from May 5, 2025 to May 5, 2026, increased the total revolving commitments to approximately $7.0 billion as of May 5, 2022 and replaced LIBOR with Term SOFR as the benchmark interest rate and made certain conforming changes related thereto. As of June 30, 2022, borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility accrued interest at Adjusted Term SOFR (as defined in the Revolving Credit Facility), plus a margin of 1.05% per year. We are required to pay a facility fee of 0.20% per year
28

in respect of total commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility. Interest rate and facility fees are subject to increases or decreases based on declines or improvements in the credit ratings for our debt.

In June 2022, we increased the aggregate facility capacity by an additional $122.5 million and also extended the maturity of $125.0 million in commitments to May 5, 2026. As of August 4, 2022, we had total revolving commitments of approximately $7.1 billion. Lenders held revolving commitments totaling approximately $6.7 billion that mature on May 5, 2026, commitments totaling $32.5 million that mature on May 5, 2025 and commitments totaling $375.0 million that mature on May 5, 2023.

The Revolving Credit Facility provides for certain covenants, including covenants that limit our subsidiaries’ ability to incur, create, or assume certain unsecured indebtedness, and our subsidiaries’ abilities to engage in certain mergers, consolidations, and asset sales. The Revolving Credit Facility also requires us to comply with certain financial maintenance covenants including minimum consolidated shareholders’ equity, minimum consolidated unencumbered assets, and an interest coverage test. In addition, the Revolving Credit Facility contains customary events of default. In the case of an event of default, the lenders may terminate the commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility and require immediate repayment of all outstanding borrowings.

Other debt financings

From time to time, we enter into other debt financings such as unsecured term financings and secured term financings, including export credit. As of June 30, 2022, the outstanding balance on other debt financings was $325.5 million and we had pledged three aircraft as collateral with a net book value of $217.1 million. As of December 31, 2021, the outstanding balance on other debt financings was $312.0 million and we had pledged three aircraft as collateral with a net book value of $222.2 million.

Off‑balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not established any unconsolidated entities for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or for other contractually narrow or limited purposes. We have, however, from time to time established subsidiaries or trusts for the purpose of leasing aircraft or facilitating borrowing arrangements which are consolidated.

We have non-controlling interests in two investment funds in which we own 9.5% of the equity of each fund. We account for our interest in these funds under the equity method of accounting due to our level of influence and involvement in the funds. Also, we manage aircraft that we have sold through our Thunderbolt platform. In connection with the sale of certain aircraft portfolios through our Thunderbolt platform, we hold non-controlling interests of approximately 5.0% in two entities. These investments are accounted for under the cost method of accounting.

Impact of LIBOR Transition

On March 5, 2021, the Chief Executive of the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, which regulates LIBOR, publicly announced that no new contracts using U.S. dollar LIBOR should be entered into after December 31, 2021, and that publication of certain tenors of U.S. dollar LIBOR (including overnight and one, three, six and 12 months) will permanently cease after June 30, 2023. In the United States, efforts to identify a set of alternative U.S. dollar reference interest rates are ongoing, and the Alternative Reference Rate Committee (“ARRC”) has recommended the use of a Secured Overnight Funding Rate (“SOFR”). SOFR is different from LIBOR in that it is a backward-looking secured rate rather than a forward-looking unsecured rate. For cash products and loans, the ARRC has also recommended Term SOFR, which is a forward-looking SOFR based on SOFR futures and may in part reduce differences between SOFR and LIBOR.

As of June 30, 2022, we had approximately $0.8 billion of floating rate debt outstanding that used either one or three-month LIBOR as the applicable reference rate to calculate the interest on such debt, of which $155.5 million is set to mature after June 30, 2023. Additionally, our perpetual Series A Preferred Stock is set to accrue dividends at a floating rate determined by reference to three-month LIBOR, if available, beginning March 15, 2024. While all of our agreements governing LIBOR-linked debt obligations and Series A Preferred Stock obligations that are set to mature after June 30, 2023 contain LIBOR transition fallback provisions, the lack of a standard market practice and inconsistency in fallback provisions in recent years is reflected across the agreements governing our floating rate debt and Series A Preferred Stock. For our Series A Preferred Stock, if we determine there is no such alternative reference rate as of March 15, 2024, then we must select an independent financial advisor to determine a substitute rate for LIBOR, and if an independent financial advisor cannot determine an alternative reference rate, the dividend rate, business day convention and manner of calculating dividends applicable during the fixed-rate period of the Series A Preferred Stock will be in effect.

In April 2022, we amended and extended our Revolving Credit Facility through an amendment that, among other things, replaced LIBOR with Term SOFR as the benchmark interest rate. After that amendment, borrowings under the amended Revolving Credit Facility accrue interest at Adjusted Term SOFR (as defined in the Revolving Credit Facility), plus a margin of 1.05% per year subject to increases or decreases based on declines or improvements in the credit ratings for our debt.

The implementation of a substitute reference rate for the calculation of interest rates under our LIBOR linked debt and Series A Preferred Stock obligations may cause us to incur expenses in effecting the transition and may result in disputes with our lenders or holders of Series A Preferred Stock over the appropriateness or comparability to LIBOR of the substitute reference rate selected. However, we do not expect the LIBOR transition impact will have a material effect on our financial results based on our anticipated LIBOR linked outstanding debt and Series A Preferred Stock at June 30, 2023.

If the rate used to calculate interest on our outstanding floating rate debt that as of June 30, 2022, used LIBOR and our Series A Preferred Stock were to increase by 1.0% either as a result of an increase in LIBOR or the result of the use of an alternative reference rate determined under the fallback provisions in the applicable financial instrument when LIBOR is discontinued, we would expect to incur additional interest expense and preferred dividends of $8.4 million and $2.5 million, respectively on such indebtedness and our Series A Preferred Stock as of June 30, 2022 on an annualized basis.

Credit Ratings

In June 2022, Fitch Ratings reaffirmed our corporate rating, long-term debt credit rating and outlook. Our investment-grade corporate and long-term debt credit ratings help us to lower our cost of funds and broaden our access to attractively priced capital. The following table summarizes our current credit ratings:

Rating Agency Long-term Debt Corporate Rating Outlook Date of Last Ratings Action
Kroll Bond Ratings
A- A- Stable March 25, 2022
Standard and Poor's
BBB BBB Stable April 21, 2022
Fitch Ratings
BBB BBB Stable June 28, 2022

While a ratings downgrade would not result in a default under any of our debt agreements, it could adversely affect our ability to issue debt and obtain new financings, or renew existing financings, and it would increase the cost of our financings.

(1)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.
