first_img 1.2 Total 111,895,433 Facebook 24 Twelve Months EndedDecember 31, $ — Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 HighlightsTook delivery of 10 aircraft from our orderbook and purchased 14 aircraft from the secondary market during the fourth quarter 2020, representing $1.1 billion in aircraft investments. As of December 31, 2020, we owned 332 aircraft in our operating lease portfolio, with a net book value of $20.4 billion, a weighted average age of 4.1 years and a weighted average lease term remaining of 6.9 years.Placed 92% of our contracted orderbook positions on long-term leases for aircraft delivering through the end of 2022 and 73% through the end of 2023.Ended the year with $26.8 billion in committed minimum future rental payments consisting of $13.6 billion in contracted minimum rental payments on the aircraft in our existing fleet and $13.2 billion in minimum future rental payments related to aircraft on order.Issued $4.5 billion of senior unsecured medium-term notes in 2020 with a weighted average interest rate of 2.93% and ended the year with total liquidity of $7.7 billion.In January 2021, issued $750 million of senior unsecured medium-term notes due 2024 bearing an interest at a fixed rate of 0.7%, which represents ALC’s lowest interest rate on any of its senior unsecured medium-term notes.Declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per share on our outstanding common stock for the fourth quarter of 2020. The dividend will be paid on April 7, 2021 to holders of record of our common stock as of March 19, 2021. Financial Overview Our total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased by 0.1% to $2.0 billion as compared to 2019. Despite the continued growth of our fleet, our revenues decreased due to a reduction in our aircraft sales, trading and other activity. Additionally, we were not able to recognize $49.4 million of rental revenue because collection was not reasonably assured for certain of our leases. Finally, we entered into lease restructurings, which typically included lease extensions, resulting in a decrease of approximately $49.2 million in revenue. Our net income available to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $500.9 million compared to $575.2 million in 2019. Our diluted earnings per share for the full year 2020 was $4.39 compared to $5.09 for the full year 2019. The decrease in net income available to common stockholders in 2020 as compared to 2019 was primarily due to the decrease in revenues as discussed above and an increase in depreciation and interest expense from the growth of our fleet and due to our increased liquidity position, partially offset by a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses. Impact of COVID-19 The global pandemic resulting from COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact and disrupted the operations of our lessees, aircraft manufacturers and suppliers. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, governments around the world implemented numerous measures to try to contain the virus, including travel restrictions. It is unclear how long and to what extent these measures will remain in place and they may remain in place in some form for an extended period of time. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to our business includes, among other things, the following:As of February 22, 2021, most of our lessees have requested some form of accommodation. We evaluate such requests on a case-by-case basis and have agreed to accommodations with approximately 61% of our lessees. Generally, these accommodations have been in the form of partial lease deferrals for payments due during 2020, typically with a short-term repayment period. The majority of the deferrals are to be repaid within 12 months from the date the deferrals were granted, and in many cases, include lease extensions. As of February 22, 2021, our total deferrals, net of repayments, was $144.3 million. To date, we have agreed to defer $240.4 million in lease payments, of which $96.1 million or 40% of the total deferrals have been repaid. These lease deferrals have negatively impacted our cash flow provided by operating activities but our net deferrals only represented approximately 1.9% of our total available liquidity as of December 31, 2020. While the majority of the accommodations are in the form of lease deferrals, we have also entered into some lease restructurings, which typically included lease extensions, resulting in a decrease of approximately $49.2 million in revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020.Our collection rate (1) for both the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 was 88%. We expect that our collection rate will remain under pressure because of the impact of COVID-19. Because collection was not reasonably assured with certain lessees, we did not recognize rental revenue of approximately $21.2 million and $49.4 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively. Aircraft on lease with these lessees represented approximately 7.8% of our fleet by net book value as of December 31, 2020.Our Lease Utilization Rate (2) for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020 was 99.8% and 99.6%, respectively.While we have planned our capital expenditures for 2021 and beyond based on currently expected delivery schedules, given the current industry circumstances, our aircraft delivery schedule could continue to be subject to material changes. In any case, our capital expenditures will be significantly less than what we planned prior to the pandemic, which will slow our revenue growth, but will further improve our strong liquidity position. Similar to 2020, we also anticipate reduced sales activity in 2021 compared to previous years, as a result of these delivery delays.Some transitions of the Company’s aircraft from one lessee to another lessee have been delayed. As a result of travel restrictions and other impacts from COVID-19, we expect some challenges when transitioning, acquiring or selling aircraft.COVID-19 has caused disruption in the financial markets. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have maintained a significant liquidity position of $7.7 billion and have raised $3.8 billion in aggregate principal Medium-Term Notes with a weighted average interest rate of 2.6%. Given the dynamic nature of this situation, we cannot reasonably estimate the continued impacts of COVID-19 on our business, results of operations and financial condition for the foreseeable future.

While ALC has been impacted, our fourth quarter and full-year 2020 financial results speak to both the durability of our business model and the strength of our team. We expect the difficult environment to continue for most of 2021, but have confidence in airline industry improvement in parallel with global pandemic recovery. We are seeing increased aircraft sales and trading interest, good momentum expanding our management business, and continued placements from our orderbook,” said John L. Plueger, Chief Executive Officer and President. “The resilience of the airline industry never ceases to impress me. A number of our lessees have raised substantial capital or received government aid – but now more than ever, we believe many of them appreciate ALC’s financial strength and experience to help them utilize capital more efficiently with our young and fuel-efficient aircraft for their recovery and long-term sustainability. Global air travel has proven to be very robust over history, and we are confident in its future,” said Steven F. Udvar-Házy, Executive Chairman of the Board.

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 profit 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 profit 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 profit 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 profit 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. $ $ 21 $ 1.92 Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at end of period 6.07 206,417 Unsecured The following table shows the reconciliation of net income available to common stockholders to adjusted pre-tax return on common equity (in thousands, except percentages): ) 1,916,869 6.4 % % of Net Book Value Twitter $ Financing Activities $ 575,163 Amortization of debt discounts and issuance costs 125,345 36,691 2020 % Supplemental Disclosure of Noncash Activities Provision for income taxes 139,337 148,564 $ % $ 43,025 218,747 Accrued interest and other payables 11.6 $ change 37.6 161,092 8.0 1.30 Europe % 1,102,569 Acquisition of flight equipment under operating lease 44,885 5,597,943 Stock-based compensation 12.0 $ Expenses 20,745 161,092 $ 501 Twelve MonthsDecember 31, 1 (58,026 Airbus A319-100 Net income The following table details the region concentration of our flight equipment subject to operating leases: Owned fleet (2) 691,956 Revenues ) 114,014,021 ) Previous articleKB Home Announces the Grand Opening of Landings and Reserves at Desert Skies, Two New-home Communities in Popular Southwest Las VegasNext articleEventbrite to Participate in the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference Digital AIM Web Support $ $ $ Total committed rentals Net cash provided by operating activities WhatsApp 130,414 351,281 (unaudited) 26.7 15.4 36,691 Gain on aircraft sales, trading and other activity Less accumulated depreciation ) (81,994 Debt Financing Activities We ended the fourth quarter of 2020 with total debt financing, net of discounts and issuance costs, of $16.5 billion, resulting in a debt to equity ratio of 2.72:1.
