- Moving nicely ahead in a bright red market is AIG (AIG +2.2%) which is now in talks to sell ILFC to AerCap Holdings (AER +4%), according to a Bloomberg report. "We never comment on rumors," says AerCap CEO Aengus Kelly when reached by telephone.
- Based in the Netherlands, AerCap - a former holding of Cerberus Capital - is the largest independent aircraft lessor with $15B in assets, and - recently reporting a debt/equity ratio of 2.5x - said it could increase the load to 3.5x-4x "if extremely attractive opportunities are found."
- Of course, AIG's effort to sell ILFC to a Chinese consortium for about $4.2B isn't formally dead, but the insurer is free to pursue other sales avenues.
