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

20254,186,938 
20263,641,767 
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.
