  • $310.6 million and $903.9 million on an adjusted basis

Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016 were:

  • $1.68 and $4.71 on an adjusted basis

  • 6.1 years average remaining lease term.

  • Board authorized a $250 million Share Repurchase Program, which will run through March 31, 2017.

Aengus Kelly, CEO of AerCap, commented, "We are delighted to report another quarter of strong earnings, evidencing the consistency of our earnings power and our excellent operational performance. During the third quarter, we generated $1.22 of earnings per share or $1.68 on an adjusted basis. We are on track to complete $3 billion of asset sales in 2016, which has enabled us to announce an additional share repurchase authorization of $250 million, bringing our 2016 total authorizations to $1.15 billion and our cumulative repurchase authorizations over the past 18 months to $1.9 billion. AerCap continues to generate high levels of excess capital and our approach to capital deployment is designed to maximize long-term value for shareholders."

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

  • Reported net income of $225.6 million, compared with $293.9 million for the same period in 2015. Reported earnings per share (diluted) of $1.22, compared with $1.48 for the same period in 2015.
    • Reported net income and reported earnings per share were primarily impacted by sales of older aircraft during 2015 and 2016, which reduced average lease assets and lease income, as well as lower net gain on sale of assets.
    • During the third quarter of 2016, we recognized non-recurring income from net insurance proceeds which was offset by non-recurring, largely non-cash charges resulting from our decision to accelerate the downsizing of AeroTurbine.
    • Reported earnings per share was favorably impacted by a lower number of outstanding shares as a result of share repurchases completed in 2015 and the first nine months of 2016.
  • Adjusted net income of $310.6 million, compared with $327.0 million for the same period in 2015. Adjusted earnings per share (diluted) of $1.68, compared with $1.64 for the same period in 2015.
    • Adjusted net income and earnings per share were primarily driven by the same factors as reportednet income and earnings per share, except the pre-tax results at AeroTurbine, including restructuring related expenses.

Third quarter 2016 net income decreased 23% on a reported basis and 5% on an adjusted basis compared with the same period in 2015, and third quarter 2016 earnings per share decreased 18% on a reported basis and increased 2% on an adjusted basis over the same period in 2015. Both reported and adjusted net income and earnings per share were primarily impacted by sales of older aircraft during 2015 and 2016, which reduced average lease assets and lease income, as well as lower net gain on sale of assets. During the third quarter of 2016, we recognized non-recurring income from net insurance proceeds and incurred non-recurring, largely non-cash charges resulting from our decision to accelerate the downsizing of AeroTurbine. Reported and adjusted earnings per share were favorably impacted by a lower number of outstanding shares as a result of share repurchases completed in 2015 and the first nine months of 2016.

Adjusted net income reflects, among other items, expensing the maintenance rights asset over the remaining economic life of the aircraft as compared to expensing this asset during the remaining lease term as reflected in reported net income. The maintenance rights asset represents the difference between the actual physical condition of the former ILFC aircraft at the acquisition date and the value based on the contractual return conditions in the lease contracts. The difference between the two methods has no economic impact as it is non-cash and equalizes over time.

At the end of 2015, we made the decision to restructure and downsize the AeroTurbine business, after the completion of which, AeroTurbine would only provide services to support AerCap's aircraft leasing business. Following the decision to downsize AeroTurbine and in order to present AerCap Holdings N.V. earnings relating to the core aircraft leasing business, adjusted net income excludes AeroTurbine-related income and losses. We believe adjusted net income may further assist investors in their understanding of our operational and financial performance. Refer to Notes Regarding Financial Information Presented in This Press Release for details relating to the adjustments.

Lease revenue:            
Basic lease rents $1,088.0 $1,164.6 (7%) $3,333.6 $3,487.0 (4%)
Maintenance rents and other receipts 91.9 81.1 13% 313.2 219.1 43%
Lease revenue 1,179.9 1,245.7 (5%) 3,646.8 3,706.1 (2%)

Total Revenues and other income $1,226.1 $1,322.8 (7%) $3,783.6 $3,949.5 (4%)

Basic lease rents were $1,088.0 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $1,164.6 million for the same period in 2015. The decrease was primarily due to sales of older aircraft during 2015 and 2016, which reduced average lease assets. Our average lease assets for the third quarter of 2016 were $34.6 billion, compared with $36.4 billion for the same period in 2015.

Maintenance rents and other receipts were $91.9 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $81.1 million for the same period in 2015.

Net gain on sale of assets for the third quarter of 2016 was $22.4 million, relating to 36 aircraft sold and four aircraft reclassified to finance leases, compared with $51.6 million for the same period in 2015, relating to 12 aircraft sold and one aircraft reclassified to finance leases. The decrease was primarily due to the timing and composition of asset sales.

Other income for the third quarter of 2016 was $23.8 million, compared with $25.5 million for the same period in 2015. Other income for the third quarter of 2016 included non-recurring income from net insurance proceeds, partially offset by non-recurring, non-cash charges resulting from our decision to accelerate the downsizing of AeroTurbine.

As shown in the table above, adjusted interest expense was $272.3 million in the third quarter of 2016 and 2015.

Net spread was $815.7 million in the third quarter of 2016, a 9% decrease compared with the same period in 2015. The decrease was attributable to higher average cost of debt and the cost associated with holding higher amounts of liquidity. Our average cost of debt increased primarily due to the issuance of new longer-term bonds to replace shorter-term ILFC notes, which had lower reported interest expense as a result of ILFC acquisition purchase accounting.

Total selling, general and administrative expenses $80.8 $91.2 (11%) $254.2 $277.7 (8%)

The decrease in selling, general, and administrative expenses quarter over quarter was due to the AeroTurbine downsizing as well as other expense reductions.

Other Expenses

Asset impairment was $15.1 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to $7.9 million for the same period in 2015. Asset impairment recorded in the third quarter of 2016 primarily related to lease terminations and amendments for four aircraft, for which we retained maintenance-related balances and recognized $20.3 million of maintenance rents. Leasing expenses were $128.7 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $133.0 million for the same period in 2015. Transaction, integration and restructuring related expenses were $29.0 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $2.6 million for the same period in 2015. Transaction, integration and restructuring related expenses in the third quarter of 2016 represented non-recurring, largely non-cash charges resulting from our decision to accelerate the downsizing of AeroTurbine. In the third quarter of 2015, these expenses were related to the acquisition of ILFC.

Effective Tax Rate

AerCap's effective tax rate was 16.5% during the third quarter of 2016, compared to 13.5% for the same period in 2015. The increase in our effective tax rate was primarily due to a valuation allowance related to the AeroTurbine losses recognized during the third quarter of 2016. AerCap's effective tax rate was 14.5% during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared to 13.5% for the same period in 2015. The effective tax rate for the full year 2015 was 13.9%. The effective tax rate in any year is impacted by the source and amount of earnings among AerCap's different tax jurisdictions.

As of September 30, 2016, AerCap's portfolio consisted of 1,607 aircraft that were owned, on order or managed (including aircraft owned by AerDragon, a non-consolidated joint venture). The average age of our owned fleet as of September 30, 2016 was 7.6 years and the average remaining contracted lease term was 6.1 years.

Share Repurchase Program

We have authorized a $250 million share repurchase program, which will run through March 31, 2017. Repurchases under the program may be made through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions in accordance with applicable U.S. federal securities laws. The timing of repurchases and the exact number of shares of common stock to be purchased will be determined by the Company's management, in its discretion, and will depend upon market conditions and other factors. The program will be funded using the Company's cash on hand and cash generated from operations. The program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

Notes Regarding Financial Information Presented in This Press Release

The financial information presented in this press release is not audited.

The following is a definition of non-GAAP measures used in this press release. We believe these measures may further assist investors in their understanding of our operational performance.

Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share. These measures are determined by adding an adjustment for maintenance rights related expense, non-cash charges related to the mark-to-market gains and losses on our interest rate caps and swaps, an adjustment for the AeroTurbine results, including AeroTurbine restructuring related expenses, and ILFC transaction and integration related expenses, in each case during the applicable period, to U.S. GAAP net income. The average number of shares is based on a daily average.

In connection with the ILFC transaction, we have recognized maintenance rights intangible assets associated with existing leases on the legacy ILFC aircraft and we are expensing these assets during the remaining lease terms. The adjustment for maintenance rights related expense represents the difference between expensing the maintenance rights intangible assets on a more accelerated basis during the remaining lease terms (as in the Company's reported net income) as compared to expensing these assets on a straight-line basis over the remaining economic life of the aircraft (as in the Company's adjusted net income).

We use interest rate caps and swaps to allow us to benefit from decreasing interest rates and protect against the negative impact of rising interest rates on our floating rate debt. Management determines the appropriate level of caps and swaps in any period with reference to the mix of floating and fixed cash flows from our leases, debt and other contracts. We do not apply hedge accounting to our interest rate caps and some of our swaps. As a result, we recognize the change in fair value of these interest rate caps and swaps in our income statement during each period.

During the fourth quarter of 2015, we made the decision to restructure and downsize the AeroTurbine business. After completion of the downsizing, AeroTurbine will only provide services to support AerCap's aircraft leasing business. Following the decision to downsize AeroTurbine and in order to present AerCap Holdings N.V. earnings relating to the core aircraft leasing business, adjusted net income reflects an adjustment for AeroTurbine results, including AeroTurbine restructuring related expenses.

Adjusted net income excludes non-recurring expenses of $2.6 million for the third quarter of 2015 and $8.1 million for the first nine months of 2015, both relating to the ILFC transaction and integration. We recorded no expenses related to the ILFC transaction and integration during the third quarter of 2016 or the first nine months of 2016.

Additionally, adjusted net income includes the income tax impact of the above adjustments.

In addition to U.S. GAAP net income and earnings per share, we believe these measures may further assist investors in their understanding of our operational performance in relation to past and future reporting periods. A reconciliation of reported net income to adjusted net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 is presented in a table under the Net Income/Earnings Per Share section of this press release.

Adjusted debt/equity ratio. This measure is the ratio obtained by dividing adjusted debt by adjusted equity.

  • Adjusted debt means consolidated total debt less cash and cash equivalents, and less a 50% equity credit with respect to certain long-term subordinated debt.
  • Adjusted equity means total equity, plus the 50% equity credit relating to the long-term subordinated debt.

Adjusted debt and adjusted equity are adjusted by the 50% equity credit to reflect the equity nature of those financing arrangements and to provide information that is consistent with definitions under certain of our debt covenants.

Adjusted equity 9,177 9,176

Net interest margin, or net spread (refer to second table under Revenue and Net Spread section of this press release). This measure is the difference between basic lease rents and interest expense, excluding the impact of the mark-to-market of interest rate caps and swaps. We believe this measure may further assist investors in their understanding of the changes and trends related to the earnings of our leasing activities. This measure reflects the impact from changes in the number of aircraft leased, lease rates, utilization rates, as well as the impact from changes in the amount of debt and interest rates.
