() updated investors on its current revenue collection and cash situation as it supported its customers through the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a trading update on its status as of March 31, the commercial aircraft leasing firm said at the outbreak of the pandemic it instituted a programme of support for its airline customers, offering short-term interest-bearing deferrals for portions of their rent in the form of loans. The firm said the cashflow impact of this programme has been mitigated by adjusting the amortisation profiles of related financings with the agreement of lenders and a US$10.5mln equity raise in March.

To date, the company said it has provided support to 14 of its airline customers with agreements to defer a total of US$25.9mln of rent, adding that the impact on cashflow has been mitigated by secured lenders agreeing to reschedule US$32.7mln of loan amortisation payments.

Meanwhile, the company said revenue collection has been “challenging” due to the disruption caused by COVID-19, reporting that for the quarter to March 31, it achieved an overall cash collection rate of 71% across all of its leases, a six-fold increase over the six months to December 31, 2020, while revenues for the quarter came in at US$91mln.
