AerSale Corporation (NASDAQ: ASLE) reported Q4 revenue for the quarter came in at $49.4 million versus the consensus estimate of $45.5 million.

Reported fourth quarter 2020 revenue of $49.4 million

  • Fourth quarter GAAP net income was $0.6 million and full year 2020 net income was $8.5 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA reflected benefits from the CARES Act, cost reductions in response to COVID-19, and strong performance in the Company’s aircraft MRO business.

Looking forward to 2021, the Company expects continued growth driven by anticipated strong MRO volume due to the recommissioning of commercial aircraft, a return of whole asset sales primarily from its Boeing 757 procurement program, contributions from its innovative AerAware product launch, and the gradual recovery of commercial markets.

Nicolas Finazzo, AerSale’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to report our first quarterly and year-end results as a public company, and are grateful for the confidence our shareholders have placed in the AerSale team to generate long-term value. 2020 marked a challenging year globally and particularly in the aerospace industry as a result of the effects of COVID-19. We believe our ability to navigate these headwinds is a testament to the extraordinary efforts of our dedicated and skilled workforce, demonstrates the resilience of our business, and validates the fully-integrated aircraft service model we have established. Our ability to service aircraft at every point in the cycle not only adds tremendous value to our customers, but also allows us to emerge into 2021 positioned to resume our growth trajectory.”

Finazzo continued, “In the year ahead we expect our MRO facilities to be operating at or near capacity as we continue to work on freighter aircraft conversions and support the continued maintenance and reactivation of parked aircraft as commercial aviation gradually recovers. Our team was also able to make important investments in our Boeing 757 program, which is expected to bolster operating performance as we finalize customer contracts. Finally, we anticipate launching our AerAware program with our first customer in 2021, which will bring innovative military technology to commercial aviation through a partnership with Universal Avionics, an ELBIT Systems company. We believe the AerAware program represents a significant long-term revenue opportunity for AerSale.”

GUIDANCE:

AerSale Corporation sees FY2021 revenue of $340-360 million, versus the consensus of $325 million.

AerSale expects revenue of $340–$360 million and adjusted EBITDA of $60-$70 million in 2021. This outlook reflects an increase in activity in the Company’s AMS segment, strong demand for its on-airport MRO services, accelerating demand in cargo and E-Commerce markets, and increased requests for passenger-to-freighter conversions and other TechOps products and services. The main growth driver of the Asset Management segment is expected to be the monetization of the Boeing 757 feedstock acquisition in 2020. Because of the strong demand for cargo conversion aircraft, AerSale expects to sell the majority of the available aircraft in 2021. For TechOps, in addition to the continued contributions from storage activities, the Company also expects increased contribution from its component MRO businesses as well as the commencement of sales of its AerAware product in late 2021. In 2021, additional CARES Act grant proceeds of $9.2 million were awarded to the Company.
