AeroCentury Corp. Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

BURLINGAME, California, August 9, 2018 -- AeroCentury Corp. (the "Company") (NYSE American: ACY), an independent aircraft leasing company, today reported a second quarter net loss of $81,000, or $(0.06) per share, compared to net income of $371,000, or $0.22 per share, for the first quarter of 2018 and net income of $356,000, or $0.25 per share, for the second quarter of 2017.

In the first six months of 2018, net income decreased 76% to approximately $236,000, or $0.17 per share, from approximately $997,000, or $0.67 per share, in the first six months of 2017.

The second quarter and first six months of 2018 included $0.6 million and $1.6 million, respectively, of other income resulting from payments received from a lessee of three aircraft that were returned to the Company during 2017.  Such payments were received after the aircraft were returned and were applied toward unpaid maintenance reserves as well as amounts owed for unsatisfied return conditions of the applicable leases.  The unpaid amounts were not booked as receivables by the Company at the time of lease termination based on management's evaluation of the creditworthiness of the lessee. Therefore, the Company is accounting for payments from this lessee as they are received and they are recorded in other income.

"In the second quarter, we continued on our path of modernizing our portfolio, purchasing two mid-life Dash 8-Q400 turboprop aircraft after having previously sold five older aircraft in late 2017 and early 2018.  An unanticipated delay in closing our second quarter acquisitions resulted in a lag in reinvestment of the previous sales proceeds, and this created a short-term drag on our revenues in the first half of 2018.  The short-term effect of potential lags in reinvestment is a necessary occasional consequence of dynamic and strategic portfolio management, and we believe it is more than outweighed by the potential long-term benefit of modernizing our portfolio in terms of value retention and asset marketability, and we remain committed to continuing on this path.  The average age of aircraft we are holding for lease is now approximately 11 years," said Michael Magnusson, President.

Mr. Magnusson also commented on the progress of the Company's proposed acquisition by merger of JetFleet Holding Corp. ("JHC"), the corporation that has managed the Company's operations and aircraft portfolio since the Company's founding in 1997.  "A special meeting of the Company's stockholders to approve the Merger is scheduled for August 31, 2018, and is the final procedural step to be accomplished before we can consummate the Merger.  Although the consummation of the Merger of the Company and JHC has taken somewhat more time than we originally anticipated, both companies remain fully committed to the transaction," stated Mr. Magnusson.
