ILFC Transaction

4. ILFC Transaction 

On May 14, 2014, AerCap issued 97,560,976 new ordinary shares and paid $2.4 billion in cash to AIG to successfully complete the ILFC Transaction. Prior to the consummation of the ILFC Transaction, ILFC paid a special distribution to AIG in the amount of $600.0 million.

The total consideration paid to AIG, excluding the special distribution of $600.0 million paid by ILFC to AIG on May 13, 2014, had a value of approximately $7.0 billion based on AerCap’s closing price per share of $46.59 on May 14, 2014. On the Closing Date, immediately after completing the ILFC Transaction, all of ILFC’s assets were transferred substantially as an entirety to AerCap Trust, a legal entity formed on February 5, 2014, and AerCap Trust assumed substantially all of the liabilities of ILFC. AICDC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AerCap Ireland, and ILFC, an indirect subsidiary of AerCap Trust, are the sole beneficiaries of AerCap Trust.

On June 9, 2015, AIG sold 71,184,686 of its AerCap ordinary shares in a secondary public offering and AerCap completed the Share Repurchase from AIG of 15,698,588 ordinary shares.  

On August 24, 2015, AIG sold 10,677,702 of its AerCap ordinary shares in a secondary public offering. Following this sale, AIG no longer owns any of our outstanding ordinary shares and has no designees on our Board of Directors.

Year Ended December 31, 2014

Total Revenues and other income



Net income



The most significant pro forma adjustments were to reflect the impact, net of tax, of: (i) the amortization of the intangible lease premium component as an adjustment to revenue; (ii) the expensing of the maintenance rights intangible, which occurs when the lease ends for EOL contracts or when the lessee provides us with the required documentation related to the cost of a qualifying maintenance event that relates to pre-acquisition usage for MR contracts. The related pro forma adjustment was based on the estimated annual charge in the first full year after the acquisition; (iii) the depreciation and amortization expenses related to the fair value adjustments to aircraft and other intangibles; (iv) the interest expense on the existing debt taking into account the fair value adjustment to the debt as of the Closing Date; (v) the interest expense related to the acquisition financing, as if the financing occurred as of January 1, 2013; (vi) other interest expense adjustments relating to the maintenance and security deposit liabilities as well as the prepayments on flight equipment; and (vii) non-recurring transaction and integration related expenses, as if they had been incurred as of January 1, 2013 instead of 2014.

The above unaudited pro forma financial information is for informational purposes only and may not necessarily reflect the actual results of operations had the ILFC Transaction been consummated on January 1, 2013. The pro forma information did not adjust for gain from sales, impairment charges and loss from early extinguishment of debt. These pro forma amounts are not designed to represent the future expected financial results of AerCap. The ILFC Transaction resulted in significant increases of our assets and liabilities, as well as revenues and expenses.
