[AIRASIA BHD, short term gain for long term pain?]
According to the 2016 annual report, AirAsia (AAB) flies to 109 destinations across 18 countries. Yesterday, AAB proposes to divest its aircraft leasing operations that are currently undertaken by Asia Aviation Capital Limited (AACL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of AAB, to entities managed by BBAM Limited Partnership for a disposal consideration of USD1.2b. Further, under the Disposal SPAs, AAB and its affiliate airlines will enter into lease arrangements to lease 79 aircraft and 14 aircraft engines from the respective purchasers. In conjunction with the Disposal, agreements have also been entered into for the disposal of up to 98 aircraft to be delivered in the future.
The lease arrangements:
1. Lessor: Herondell, Red 1 and/or its subsidiaries
12-month period lease rental: USD31.3 million (approximately RM122.0 million)
2. Lessor: Incline Aladdin, Red 2 and/or its subsidiaries
34 aircraft and 7 aircraft engines
12-month period lease rental: USD110.8 million (approximately RM432.0 million)
3. Lessor: Fly Aladdin, Red 3 and/or its subsidiary, Red 4 and/or its subsidiary
32 aircraft and 7 aircraft engines
12-month period lease rental: USD106.6 million (approximately RM415.6 million)
AAB is planning for a net increase of additional 5 aircraft in the first quarter of 2018. In short term, the disposal can lower the gearing of AAB. However, in long term, the operating lease income is going to be affected and operating expenses are going to be higher (because of the leasing of aircrafts and engines). BBAM is not stupid to buy AACL.
