DAE hikes bond repurchase scheme by $300m

DUBAI, November 28, 2018

Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), aerospace corporation and one of the largest aircraft leasing companies in the world, said that its Board of Directors and Shareholders had authorized an additional $300 million for bond repurchases to be conducted through open market transactions.

To date, DAE has repurchased $295 million of principal amount of its publicly traded bonds under the previous authorization of $300 million.

DAE chief executive officer Firoz Tarapore said: “The current trading levels of our bonds are not consistent with our current credit ratings, strong financial performance or our projected ratings trajectory. We continue to generate cash and capital at a rate that allows us the flexibility to remove inefficient components of our liability structure, and improve our gross leverage ratios.”    

DAE currently has $3 billion of publicly traded bonds outstanding in the US capital markets.

Headquartered in Dubai, DAE’s leasing and engineering divisions serve over 125 airline customers around the world from its seven locations in Dubai, Dublin, Amman, Singapore and the US. – TradeArabia News Service
